The 'X-Tended - Terran Conflict' team are looking for musicians to create a new sound track for the mod.

If you are interested please post in this thread and you will be contacted with details about creating a sample piece for us to hear.

iv chosen the following> Mediafire.com, Myspace.com/thesoundofreever and lastfm.com....

My Résumé

now the only one with my tracks on at the mommet is myspace and there my old old ones from when i first started out so there not all that good and i dont think there what your looking for (track list> Rame, Shivana and Everrya) but are a good indication of my starting music level when i started out 4 years ago, and rest ashored iv come along way from then...

Im having technical difficaltys with uploading anything from a basic pic to anything between, up to or over 1mb in size (if anything would upload at all)... this is dew to my dappy land lord using a Vigor 2800 modem shared between 6 rooms/house mates, so i can't get it replaces nor change any settings on the thing :furious: and i have no signal for moble internet as of yet... however i will go to a friends house as soon as i can to upload all my traks and update my site ASAP....

As iv said iv been produsing for over 4 years now and my styles have ranged from Ambent, Ambent D'n'B, Trance, progressive and lounge to name a few and have currently 9 to 10 compleated tracks under my belt, (not alot but considdering im unsighed and i do it with what little time i have i think iv done well lol)

To look for my work iv always come under the following co tags/signs> Reever, Reeverdark, Reeverdrak (a typo that cant be ammended :( ) and the Sound of Reever and i am the founder of a trance Heritage program called the Ministy of Trance (sadly its not taken off, and i dont want to passue it as of yet just incase it leads to problems)...

i love to produse music and i like to be part of a team, and to acheive something, and i hope that i can give something to the community here and for years to come.

any questions about me or my work im welcom to feed back =) thank you for reading and ill get my track up ASAP. 8)

Would you please post a link to your myspace profile?

I allowed myself to spend you a COMPOSER badge - I hope you don´t mind:).

21-03-2009, 09:54 PM
:grin: (need smilly for jump for joy lol ) thank you so much dude. I got a badge =) yay!

shore but be warn as i said> The muisc on there has not been updated there for over 2-3 years or more and i dont think the tracks there are to the Style of X3 or XTC.

But as soon as i can upload it i have a track named Jagged Solice that i think would be good.

http://www.myspace.com/soundofreever <My Old Old tracks... Be warned there not that good....:( but i will try to update ASAP

Reever I hope you can upload soon! Just went to your site and checked your tracks and by what you say there's something good waiting to be heard ;)

PS I like the progressive/ambient sound of 'Shivana' and its beatloop. (And imo Shivana itself wouldn't sound out of place in X3 as chase/battle theme)

*Track to be submitted for XTC is maned> Jagged Solice.< however the current version has a glitch 4.02 min in but you get the idea of it and will give out better version to thoughts who request it.

kool!

Man that's some creepy cool tune. I like the others as well... seems like you raped some Buddha Bar tunes and made em nightmarish - with a good result imo.

Only thing that might make em better is a final mastering tweaking (some multiband compression/pumping and maybe a stereo image widener to 'expand' dynamics and spatiality).

Btw gonna get myself a page in that place so I can share my creations as well (and welcome all the critics).

Keep on!

Here some feedback for you, ReeverDrak:

1. Everrya
I like the first 20 seconds. The rest is too far paced for an ambient music - we couldn't use it as a battle music, either, because it doesn't feel enough like a battle music.

2. Shivana
I like the melody, but the track is far too long. It gets repetitive soon and when I first heard the guitar in about the middle of the track, I thought another one had started. Another problem is that there are quite fast-paced parts in this track - it might work but it's mostly safer to avoid these completely in ambient tracks. At least, that's what I think. ;)

3. Rame
Very good. It's the best of the three imho and suits our "theme" pretty well. A little creepy, darker, a little melancholic. O0
My only critique would be that it, too, can get repetitive at some points. But it's not that big of a problem. :)

Some advice:
The problem with adding new tracks to the game is that there can't be much variety. We can add as many ambient tracks as we want, but we can add only one to a sector - it will be played in an endless loop. That is one category - the ambient tracks.
The other category are the combat tracks of which we can only have four. This means that those four have to be very good and must suggest fast-paced action. They can't start slowly or have more peaceful periods in them.

So essentially this means that we can only use two types of tracks: tracks clearly defined as ambient tracks and tracks clearly defined as combat tracks.

Nice thing you have there Reever. keep it going :)

thoughs 3 track were the old old ones, i listed them as there the uneditable ones, as i can't change them anymore as the .cpr file is back (and probably deleted after all these years) at my old college where i learned the wonders of Cubase 5 and then SX3.

check out me other tracks and see what you thing, i can change them as i have the .cpr files and some of which like >Zed, we have a bug< and >Jagged solice< i made this week 8)

now >jagged solice< i was thinking as a kinda dark ambiant track for like outer reach sectors like the ones that dont have much light and have heavy enimy activity.... so imagin your flyign around exploring, you cant see far and you get the feeling that you could get attacked at any minit....

now as i tryed to explain, the list online is not the final submition, but are to be considered my portfolio.

If there is an eliment of a "editable" track that you'd like or any specific changes made to tho's "editable" track then feel free to say and ill get right on to it.

like wise if there is a mood, or spcific sector you want a musical render made for then please explain it to me and ill do my best =)

to get the fall listings of my tracks and fall preview i think the best way would be via Lastfm as myspace only alows 6 tracks....

To stemardue>

Thanks =) and please expand on what you mean for the mastering, iv got a basic idea but even the wisest of men can have gaps in there understanding =P lol and thank you for your support i hope to cheack out your music at some point.

Edit> p.s, and id love to have your jump for joy smily ROLF :) lol

To DSE>

Thank you on your feed back =) sadly the tracks you'v listed as iv said are my realy really old ones... >Rame< being the first I ever prodused, with me playing the drums =P i was only 16 at the time, 17 for >Everrya< and is made almost entierly from rew audio samples but sadly got finalised and EQ'ed when a rock bad was playing so its more of an embarissment to me than an achevement and 18/19 for Shivana and was my first MIDI dominated track with only gitar added after....

To Draakon>

Thanks much i hope you like the tracks, which do you like tha most?:)......

hah first the easiest: the jumpy smiley is in the 'extended' smilies set... just click on the 'more' tab in the smilies panel, at the right of the message composer. (or... write : jump : without the spaces) :jump:

ok, about 'mastering'...
what i mean with that is the final effects/processing you apply to the mixdown. In many software sound-studio programs (Cakewalk, Cubase, Adobe Audition...) you can apply several effects to the tracks you are mixing as well as to the 'master' track. The tracks effects are used to tweak single parts (i.e. add echo to drums, add flangers to guitar, equalize, pan etc.) while the master effects are added to the whole mixdown 'after' the others. An example of a 'mastering' processor could be a compressor/expander, a stereo separation enhancer, to widen the sound 'image', and a subtle reverb to give depth and body, plus a graphic equalizer to level frequency ranges.

Hope this is a bit clearer ;)

feel free to PM me if you'd like to discuss more in depth, so we don't hog the forum thread :)

PS to moderators... SOWWY for the off topic stroll

@ReeverDrak
Ah, sorry. I though those were the ones you newly created. :o
Will hear through the other ones - are there some I should especially pay attention to? (or some I should better ignore? :grin: ) :)

@stemardue
Well, it's not a big problem but if you want to discuss more about it - why not quote the important statements and discuss it further in another thread? It sounds interesting. :)

i hope you like the stuff i made, im quite scared about my music being uninteresting and stuff, and as im still learning and that... when it comes to making music i know what sounds good but its the structure it takes i find the hardest to master... and it can affect my confidence a little but i know iv come long way and i hope i can give you what you need for the mod =)

listen to all my track and see what you think.

if there is something you like then say.

if it needs something adding/removing then say*

if there is nothing in my current list that fits the bill then im happy to make a track to specification.

i listed below a time line of my tracks to show my development as a produser> newest first....

Zed, We Have a Bug (21/03/2009 )
Jagged Solice (Mk1) (19/03/2009 )-- (my XTC Submistion)
Axis Of Evil (late 2008, early 2009 )
A love ended (09/2008 )
Betrayer (17/08/2008 ) August was a bad month for me that year....
Tellca (04-05/2008 )
I want to be Remembered (04-05/2008 )

all tracks from the above list are editable.

*the only tracks that can not be edited are the oldest ones listed below>

Everrya
Rame
Shivana

<hr>

i put effects into all my track, Check out my newst one >Zed we have a Bug<

however if you are sayin that maybe >jagged solice< could do with some more bits to it then ok, expand on it so i may change it.... (mod feed back on this aswell) as >jadded solice< is the only track iv made with X3TC:XTC in mind.

and thank for that =), been listening to soem stuff and maybe ill add a more dynamic fadein/out system to that track on some of the darker bits.. Feed back on that..

Thanks all for your support as wellas thanks to stemardue =)

I picked up Terran Conflict after not playing it for a decade!!! I remembered how aweseome the X-tended was, so i thought: I want to be part of the new mod for TC!!! So hereby I want you guys to know that I'm willing to produce a kick-ass soundtrack for the most awesome mod for x3.

I really hope that i can produce something that exceeds all expectations

So count me in!!!

Thanks for the offer, dit3456. But actually the last post before yours is more than a year old ;) and stemardue has been very active during that year on the music side, creating a great (at least IMO) soundtrack for XTC.

I'll close this thread for now.
