can we expect anything serious in near future?
2005 called and it wants it's song back
what a sweet tune
hahaha Thanks, when I first started making music I wanted to make a trance song like this. 10 years later I did it!
lol call this experimental song, I call it drunk slapdash thing
musical aspect in short - 2random4me, everything is happening kinda out of nowhere, synths and vocal don't fit the rhythm much
it could use more drums and fills, that metronome/hihat throughout the whole song isn't enough I guess and the kick is so drowned in the mix I don't even count it as being present
also vocals should be more audible, they get quite lost when the other instruments are playing.. maybe compress them a bit or eq other stuff so they get their space
good luck with future production
that's the single greatest compliment i've ever received for my music thank you so much
if you make "growlstep" where the main sound is a bass, you should always make at least 2 different sounds (or change some parameters of one so it sounds different each time, right) and alternate between them.. if you use only one it usually gets boring really quickly, like in this case..
i would also add more melodic instrument, some arps and stuff as well as more hi-hats and percussion
from the start of the song there was this low frequency noise, it makes the mix super muddy
the drops don't have any impact.. I wouldn't use this much bass before them, pre-drop should be relatively quiet, then when the drop comes it must be like BOOM
and more fx.. even some tiny whooosh every few bars can make a difference
btw those strings at drops aren't making any melody, they're just chords and they sound super repetitive.. play with the rhythm a bit, make some notes longer, other shorter.. maybe google how to make a melody, you'll get like 1846834 results, then practice a lot
and drum fills, you need to make drum fills, play with the beat every few bars, this sounded super-monotone
good luck with future production and life, it will get better, you still got like 90% of it ahead of you and that's a looot of time for everything
I may be able to comply with your parameter complaint but samples don't have parameters. The growl was a sample. I don't have Massive or Serum so yeah, I'm stuck with samples XD. But there also was a wobble in there.
I should've thought about arps, it never crossed my mine in the making of this.
I tried to fix the muddy mix at the beginning, I even added more of a bass line. Didn't help much I'm assuming.
Thing is, it's difficult for me to transition into drops, so that is why I experimented making the drop and intro sort of clash.
If you know where to get those kind of FX I'll gladly use them. FL Studio's FX selection sucks.
Understandable about the chords during the drop. Sorry.
Dubstep is a 2 step beat after all. I'm kinda lost on what drum fills are, I'll look it up.
Thanks for the review, I always appreciate hearing different thoughts about my stuff.
well well, I feel like the drums and melodic instruments don't work together.. I mean you got this spooky ambience and like total straight dance beat to it.. just doesn't sound good to me, also the drum samples themselves are of those clean-electro type, I would use something more natural, orchestra-ish, juggle with the rhytm a bit and maybe create some weird beat to contribute the song's overall atmosphere
mixing, in short, is bad.. in "drop" sections everything is competing with other, also the kick is really drowned.. you can watch some mixing tutorials on YT, and also practice a lot
If this is you 2nd song, it isn't THAT bad, but of course you got a long way ahead of you
yeah sounds pretty funky :) I like the flow of melodies and everything, musical aspect in really creative and catchy.. also a very good job with drum fills
now mixing could be better, not sure if funk drums don't use a kick :) or I just can't hear it.. overall drums are quite lost in the mix, some EQ work and a bit of compression could do the trick
Yeah I know exactly what you mean. That was probably the hardest thing I struggled with on this song, and still didn't fix it all of the way. Thanks for assuring me that it indeed needs work!
hi there sir,
musically it's OK, simple but catchy
intro and middle break feels quite empty.. could use more effects, theres like 1 tiny whooosh and then a riser, try layering more simple fx together
that thing that starts at 1:14/3:21 should be quiter, I mean all the other instruments get a bit drowned in the drops
overall it could use some more of lower frequencies
drums sound too minimalistic I would say, they could use some compression, maybe some stereo spread on high frequencies
Thanks for the review dude, I'll try to do my best in the future :)
Heh, sounds pretty positive to me.. really no anxiety or depression feeling anywhere (maybe a tiny bit at 1:37/2:35 :)
Musicality of this piece is great, I wasn't bored at any part, my favourite is at 1:55, that 2:35 piano melody was also decent.. Overall it has a nice adventure-ish, chill, happy vibe
mixing is cool I guess, no ear-tearing mistakes, maybe it could use some more low frequencies, otherwise good job
good luck with future production!
Thanks for your review man. I'm glad for your words. I'll try to work in low frecuencies and my mixing. Thank you so much for the good vibes ;)
Such a catchy thing! I have not much to say, it is a great retro piece
Mixing is cool as well, I cant hear any mistakes, so good job :)
Thanks for listening!
