The countdown is still a major WIP but in the mean time... here is where i am up to with the BBC World News Titles
I am still working on fine tuning it so critical feedback would be greatly appreciated.
What, no comments on this? A lot of the percussion, and those strings as well, are pretty darn close to nailing that BBC News sound, good stuff. Suggestions would be, keep the strings for sure. Maybe experiment with bulking them up with another texture on top - same notes but lower volume layer - just something subtle like that to bolster it... Thinking of your earlier versions which used that more synth-y string patch, in particular.
Only critical point would be that drum machine-like, very 'snappy' sounding single clap that comes in just before :4" and stands out like a sore thumb IMHO, as if it shouldn't really be there... But that is all!
Thanks for the feedback Paul, i've been fiddling with this for a while, still not 100% happy with it, just thought i would post so you could hear here
where I was up to.
I hate to keep saying that the only sound samples used from the original David Lowe version were the thunderclaps, but I feel pretty good about it. Been trying to make my own for a while now, but the software instruments just don't cut it.
Hope you all enjoy, again I would really appreciate any criticism.
Possibly the ramblings of a crazy person?!
