A little musical experiment for all y’all
There have been two main pieces I’ve been working on in my synth class this past semester. One I’ve posted a version of already: the Absoludicrous theme song. The other was a master edition of the Escape piece from Travels. I did quick versions of both of these before I had the instructor come in and look at it. He helped me tweak and fix a whole bunch of little issues with both pieces: EQ, compressors, limiters, and other audio buzzwords. The Escape piece we worked on for two whole months (of classtime, not realtime) trying to get it to sound better. Now, here’s the ticket. I want to know, to the average Internet listener, 1) which version you think came first (before the tweaking) and which came second, and 2) which one sounds better. They’re labeled “version 1” and “version 2,” but that doesn’t mean that version 1 necessarily came first.
Leave your comments! Nate, I’m looking in your direction! Bonus points to whoever can tell me the biggest thing that still needs fixing in both versions of “The Escape” in terms of audio.
