Melodic-Power-AOR with AT5 and SampleTank

Postby elammark13 » Thu Mar 31, 2022 1:18 am

Hi everyone. I'm not even sure myself what genre of music it is besides rock, but I've been told Melodic-Power-AOR sums it up best. lol "Shattered" is a new song I just finished up. All guitars are AT5 and all keyboards (except the opening melody...that's from a friend) are various SampleTank sounds. Hope you like it!

The video and sound production are incredible as are all the performances, a really nice listen dude.

Can't wait to hear more from you.

Cheers, CS. :)

Agree with CS!

Very solid all round, liked the song, performances, production, the way the track built up and the video. Your Son is already a fine Sax player and I enjoyed the guitar work too 8-) .

Genre wise I'd say there's a fair leaning towards 'old school prog' so 6 minutes plus is fairly short! :D so I wouldn't worry too much about the length of the track.

Great stuff!

Hey there,

What a wonderful song, harnessing both beauty and power! Super sounds, playing/singing and awesome production value...with an entertaining vid to boot! I also get Floyd and Queensryche from it but it's very theatrical too - parts of it feel like the final sung on stage at the end of Act 1 or used at the finale, emotive stuff!

Was wondering if you could pass along which AT5 and ST samples were used?

You have a new sub & really look forward to more to come from you!

Thank you everyone for the kinds words!! It means a lot when you're doubting yourself. I'll list the sounds I used for everything a bit later. Thanks again!

Thank you so much! I agonize over my mixes all the time. But even I'm actually proud of this one (for once lol). It's the vocals from my old friend that really drove it home, I think.

Thank you! And my son said to say thank you as well. :D "Old school prog" sounds about what I was aiming for. :)

Thank you! I definitely had Pink Floyd in my head when writing this. Not anything in particular, just the general vibe. I didn't think Queensryche...but Mindcrime is one of my favorite albums...so who knows!

As for what sounds I used, I've rendered things down and didn't save any tweaks I made to sounds, but from what I remember:
keys
• chorus voices=Mixe Ah choir from Phiharmonik CE (added some EQ, reverb, and a bit of chorus to it
• strings=14 violins sustain (with EQ & reverb)
• string pad=acoustic & analog pad
• acoustic guitar=american acoustic Strums Maj-min
• verse voices=synth wave mega choir

guitars (AT5)
distorted chorus guitars=quad tracked, with 4 different amps - Mesa MK IIc+, Mesa MK III, Mesa MK IV, Engl Powerball
guitar solo= Mesa MK IIc+
rotary guitar=Fender '65 Twin Reverb into Fender Vibratone cab

I may upload a couple of them to Tone.net. They are actually based on some Night Ranger/Brad Gillis patches I made.

If you're interested, you can hear a short clip of the song I'm working on right now. I'm still on the writing phase, but have more than this recorded...but I only have this clip uploaded to YouTube.



Haven't had time lately to work more on it. Hoping to soon though. Really excited about how it's sounding so far!
