It's definitely tickling the nostalgia bone, alright.

Gorgeous track! Only gripe I personally have with it is that there's a significant volume difference in several areas which can be distracting (was personally a bit scared I had to turn my volume down a couple places) which is noticeable within the first 25 seconds, particularly the start.

Instrument choice, melody and overall atmosphere is spot on for a track that is both original yet inspired by the original Halo Soundtracks, but I personally think it could use some more mastering as it begins rather calm and adds on nearly-overwhelming instrument sounds as it progresses. I do get that you want to put more emphasis on a specific instrument in certain places (I've been there too), but you don't need to make it louder than all the others to make it noticeable. A suggestion from me would be to lower the volume of one or two backing instruments (such as the vocals and/or violins, they're already fairly distinct on their own) to help put emphasis on the instrument you want in focus.

All in all, a great track, if a bit loud. I hope to hear more!

Thanks for the feedback! This track wasn't initially meant for consumption due to a few reasons, one of which is being exceptionally loud. One of the problems I've encountered when putting music tracks into the game is that it is very hard to hear them when they are mastered or normalized at a comfortable listening threshold.

When in game however, the volume here is more than comfortable even at maximum volume assuming your own amplifier or speaker isn't jacked up beyond sane limits. Future uploaded tracks will not have this issue, as they're just simple growing pains. But this feedback will certainly help with keeping that in mind in the future. <3

Description

This is the first test track from our newest composer, SpaceBat! Here's what he had to say about the track:

"This track is a representation of the calm grandeur that Halo carries with it, but with a sense of emptiness from being in space. And it's nice to tickle the nostalgia bone."
