Future Rhythm: 68 minute d&b set made with C6.5

Hi all

I’ve been experimenting recently using C6.5 to create DJ-style mixes. I’m aware that other software is designed more specifically for this purpose but I enjoy using cubase and I wanted to see what kind of results I could get.

Using music I see as innovative and futuristic, I made a set that manipulates and re-edits the original tracks as well as blends them together. It’s an experimental, sci-fi inspired piece that uses styles I’d like to hear more of in the future. I also wanted to create something that would stand alone as a composition rather than purely showcase other people’s music.

I tried to blend the tracks together as subtly as possible and really build them into one another. It features automated panning, effects and re-arrangements of the source audio.

I hope this is of interest to a few people out there. I’d like to hear what you make of it and I welcome any comments.

I’ll listen through this tomorrow, interesting experiment anyway. I don’t see how you could pull off proper mixing in realtime in Cubase, but I suppose doing it ‘offline’ works quite well.

You may find the mods delete this though, I doubt they like you sharing music you don’t have the rights to. I’ll PM you what I think of it after I’ve listened :wink:

edit: as soon as I hit download my virusscanner pops a virus alert, sorry, not downloading this!

This thread picks up in the cubase 6 forum.

I’ll put the mix up onto Soundcloud so it’s available a different way.
