Stats for this track
This song was made using only in game sounds from Halo Reach, including some parts of the score for Reach and Halo 3. No synthesis or samples from elsewhere were used.
The snare was made using a simple Beatdown, The bass frequencies were then removed to make more room for the kick drum and generally make the mix sound less muddy. In the Dubsteppy breakdown bits, the sound of drawing an energy sword was added to the snare to make it bigger and longer. Reverb was then added too. Blah blah blah
The lead synth on the drop is the first bass note of "One Final Effort" from the Halo 3 score. The note was put in a sampler and distorted heavily using Ohmicide and camel crusher plugins.
For the build up, a brute spiker was sampled and looped. I couldn't find any YouTube videos on this.
Any impact hits heard when a breakdown happens are a combination of the grav hammer and the sniper with a ton of reverb.
