is that piano recorded live at least? sounds very ok
add some sub yo
me? being good at an instrument?
(with the notes i have on there its not possible)
(moreover im trash at actual playing)
needs more rap... I need to hear you rapping or my life is never going to be complete
overall it's pretty loopy, lacks some major change in the flow, at least some break in the middle would be nice
mix feels nice
it has that gta loading screen vibes
no thanks, i sound like the aftermath of a way too intrusive dentist appointment.
thanks for review
no 4/4 kick no house bro (or sis or whatever you are)
musically your songs start to make sense, enough of elements and stuff, but
the drops don't have much an impact, feels like the build-ups are louder (or as loud) and that you just don't want in any song of this type
overall I don't get the right brosteppy feel out of this.. put mp3 of this into fl together with similar professional song and compare the waveforms - it has be pushed to the 0db ceiling a bit to feel right, your thing is not crushed enough,
needs more Seamless
will crush more
thing is, when i crush my songs to the 0db ceiling, they just end up being not loud enough so idk
maybe i need more compression up in my shit
thanks (its sis)
I would add some more little effects and stuff to the drops, they feel a bit empty... of course you got nice loud drums and vocal and lead but it's really the little, barely audible things that do the magic
at 3:40 and on I can hear some dissonance between the vocal and the background synth, not sure if that's intentional, but it doesn't fit to the rest of the song imo
the drop lead could be turned down as a whole, or EQed a bit more, feels a bit overwhelming
mix overall is not terrible but could use more tweaking, it'll get better as time goes (if you keep doing it :)
keep it up
I (and other people I've asked) agree with what you've said about the drop as well as the EQ issues, but I've never considered adding some barely audible stuff. Hmm... interesting...
Anyways, thanks for responding! Any criticism/suggestions are appreciated!
how about make a whole song out of it? Nobody here likes 9 sec loops :)
pretty hard do write anything constructive about it too
Im actually working on that since i uploaded this song
the sidechain is a bit too hard to my taste, but I guess that's how this style works :)
nice c h i l l vibes you got here
Thanks! Yeah, the sidechain is rather hard, I figured I was pushing it a bit.
some more variations in the beat would be cool
some more variations in the instruments' rthythm would be cool
the hi-hat thing a bit less loud would be cool
overall noice chill thing, original approach (((((((:((((((((((((:))))))))))))):))))))
would be cool indeed
edit: hihat thing is coffee beans and a knife in kinetic sand

something seems off about the low frequencies, either the sub isn't loud enough or it clashes with the sub of the kick, it helps to shorten the drum samples as much as possible (long boomy kick may sound good on its own but it can muddy the mix a lot), maybe highpass the kick around 60-80Hz...
I would also add some more hi-hats/cymbals/highpassed drum break to the main parts, to my taste this is too minimal
both piano and pads could be turned down a bit
also developing the melody more at later parts would be nice, I'm all into minimalistic approach, but this kinda leads to nowhere, overall vibe is nice though
and comparing your song to some similar, profesional one is always a good idea, maybe with anylizers like SPAN if you don't trust your ears/ sound system
hope this helps a bit, keep it up :)
thanks a lot for the tip on the low frequencies, I definitely have to include that in the mixing process.
minimal is where I was heading with this track, but I will spice it up a bit more next time :)
strange, some other people off of NG that listened to it said the piano should have been louder. guess that´s a personal taste thing.
I rarely reference my tracks, though I probably should. I use SPAN vigorously on every project.
Your feedback is always welcome, you magnificent DnB beast :) thanks a ton, I appreciate it!
this is the future of music! - create 13 sec loop and let listeners imagine the rest of the track in their heads
what is music ?
yup, sounds sinister
there's not much to rate on this thing, really, since this is a banjo solo played throught a keyboard, right
could work as a background music for some game/movie set in dark medieval or something, I personally wouldn't listen to this just like that, like a regular song, sounds a bit empty to me
good luck with your future creations :)
Oh dear. I couldn't possibly re-record this because those little messups make it sound like tongue and this music talks, in many ways really... But I made a lot better ones, I just deal with MS, so it's not always easy to maneuver. http://www.newgrounds.com/playlists/view/18e4a1384b0945fc9122a6353a1f682c I make other genres but I love doing this. It's basically improv work that is done while it's recording. It means I play a track I did not rehearse while recording it. And as I already said I did use a piano keyboard. It has weighted keys however, and is very nice enough to be able to make this sound good. I know it could sound a lot better, but the tongue is going to be hard to re-replicate. Some of it isn't accidental. I enjoy it.
