Aria - Necessity to Be Aria - Necessity to Be

Rated 4 / 5 stars

it distorts when drums hit at some sections, you don't want that in this type of music, go easy with compression, orchestral stuff is all about dynamics

the ending feels like it was cut in the middle of progression, I would end it at 4:29, maybe some longer slow fadeout on that one chord would work

but otherwise pretty cool, maybe orchestral music is your thing :)

DelitescentAria responds:

Maybe it is my thing :^).

I went a little ham with compression because the drums were SUPER loud when stacked. I'll watch out for it next time.

Thanks for your input :)

man, go easy on compression, this sounds destroyed, even for dubstep norms.. for instance in moments like 2:35, the piano just can't breathe, same thing with that synth at 1:47

I think you could turn down the hihats a bit

and I don't get the right feel from the bass.. feels quite muddy.. there is some sub-bass in the kick but you should add it also into some melodic instrument.. you are probably boosting 100-200hz area too much, so sub frequencies around 50hz get lost.. remember the bass has to be clean and consistent, no bass boosts and sound goodizers are going to clean it

though musically it's kinda nice, the technical side really prevents me from enjoying the song

hope this helps a bit, gl with future production :)

Thank you for the review!

It's an old track of mine and yeah...the compression in this one is bad, some stuff gets through this mess, some of it doesn't ^^'

I learned a while back, that pushing everything to the max isn't the trick for a good track ^^
Still thanks for your advise, it helps me a lot to keep improving :)


Aria - Overlong Aria - Overlong

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I have like 0 exp with orchestral things but anyway: )

It feels like it was highpassed on the master, I would hit some low notes on the strings

I think this could really use some percussion, I mean orchestral stuff, some cool groove

crashes like in 2:19 should be wider, they feel like a really tiny mono thing, maybe layer more of these togrether

but otherwise it's nice, I really like that moment in 2:20/3:00 when all comes in, though the piano got lost a bit :)

DelitescentAria responds:

thanks for your reply

it wasnt highpassed, i shouldve layered a bass string instrument (the actual real instrument) on the cello, wouldve been stronger. I dont have any good orchestral percussions.
