Beyond the Forgotten Land New composition by Attila Sebo. This composition features custom designed sounds also. I did not want to follow the conventional path of epic music creating and “schemes”. The main goal was to create musically appealing yet simple but different composition with my “signature sounds” . A short screen video can be seen here about recording MIDI tracks of the beginning of this music. Later the recorded tracks transferred into Harrison Mixbus DAW for audio mixing, similar as can be seen below on image 2. Later I am going to share here more details. (Updated: 08 jan. 2021)
