Really, don't look at my other submission, heh. This is the one I ended up liking a lot more.

Anyways...

Is it really DnB? I know a few people would probably argue because of the melody, but it's a 175 BPM song with lots of breakbeats and a reece, so you tell me. All of the synths are my own creations, though the bass originally started as a Cerbera Saw preset and was heavily reworked to give it a more aggressive tone.

Got questions? Ask.

Got reviews? Much appreciated, I'll try to reply to all of them whenever I can, and if you want me to check your stuff, just drop a link in your review. I'm always trying to get better, so any advice you have would be invaluable.

Niceness

Anyone who knows me well knows I'm not a huge fan of steps, but this is good stuff. The filtering is tasteful, and it makes the beat much nicer to listen to, and the occasional retrigger effects work well.

The melody's nice, but gets a bit repetitive, and though the flanging mixes it up at first, it eventually just got a little irritating to me. More a matter of personal preference than anything though.

Biggest thing that impressed me though was that it was all well mastered and mixed, something which you really don't see enough on NG, which depresses me. Nice balance of high/low tones as well. Overall great choon!

Thanks for the review, I'm always grateful when someone takes the time to review me back, so thanks.

Anyways, anout your comment on the melody, I agree it might seem a bit repetitive, but I think part of the problem comes from the fact that I forgot to filter the second section of melody, thus leaving just the synth that may sound a bit harsh on its own.

Also thanks for noticing the mastering. That was probably the most time consuming part of this song save for the drums.

Thank god!

Man, most of the entries i've listened to have been awful, but this one is a little ray of sunshine for me :P

Really clean, lovely pads, love the reese, and your the first person i've listened to that hasn't used default drum samples! Top man!
Great Variation all the way through, definetly one of the better entries of the contest ;)

Best of luck man!

Fuiste responds:

Thanks, I'm really glad you of all people liked it.

Also glad you noticed the drums, I'm actually using the slicer and a beat that I had sitting around on my computer. I pitch raised the drums and compressed 'em to give them a punchy sound, and they ended up sounding like individual samples, so I guess that's cool.

Good luck on the contest to you too.

impressed...

love love love the drums...my god...tell me how you did them! lol
i feel that the bass needs a sharper tone to it, it seems a tad too mellow for the impact that the drums set up....perhaps a few more snare rolls lead up to impact moments..feels like it needs a stronger kick...felt a tad empty...overall impressive work! if you ever get the chance, would love some feedback on some of the things ive submitted..i feel stuck and could use any help i could get:D


Fuiste responds:

Glad you liked the drums, they took the longest of any part of this song. I made them by using a distorted, compressed, and pitch raised sliced drum loop in the fruity slicer. I then added a kick and snare sample on top of that drum part to give those additional punch.
