Took the drums from one of my other songs and stuck them in a classical peice...

Reviws would be great



Rated 4 / 5 stars


Get some real breaks to slice. The ones that come with FL Studio are blah.

The rolls made me twitch, which is good.
The classical part of the track was pretty good.

I thought it was okay.
4/5 8/10

Reminds me of early aphex twin...

Sounds good, drums fit in well with the strings and it's got a nice atmosphere to the song.
My only criticisms would be that the drums have a little too much reverb on them, and that the slicing needs either quantizing or if you have difficulty slicing up beats and keeping them in time, try using a VST/AU plugin called LiveCut, it automatically slices beats for you but you can manipulate different parameters to control the pitch changes in the snare rolls etc etc etc
Also, this is more IDM than Drum n Bass, but other than those I say keep it up! I like the sound.

Well... to tell you the truth...

The music is great. Has a very classical feel to it... but I have a major problem with your drums. Absolutely does not fit in this song. I know it's a sample drum beat. Drill_NB. Here's the blow by blow: (I may have little to say due to the drums)

1. Intro: Good intro. Nice start with the strings, but I think you shoud have gone a little bit slower.
2. Cool use of the close hats when you bring in the drums.
3. The drums have been poorly sliced. Did you put the whole sample on top of sliced drums from that sample? It was an interesting idea... but... it does not, really does not do well for the song.
4. Cool fade in and out with the drums, but I think you've done a little bit more than you were supposed to: there's awkward use of pitch, the slicing is basically all out of whack. I suggest try making your own sample drums. I can help you with that, if need be.
5. Everything else is pretty much in order. But, I believe what this song lacks is something of a sub-bass. That would be nice.
6. Cool fade outro. Nice.


Okay. Main problem: the drums. Using samples is cool, but you need to know exactly what you are doing with them: in particular with cut off, slicing, pitch modding, and velocity modding.

Try keeping in with originality, because I know some people are going to hassle you for that, but it really isn't a problem. Start learning how to make your own drum samples. I try and usually they come out well. If you need help, I'll be glad to do so.

But the major problem with your drums is the use of slicing. When I hear it, it realy is not pleasing to hear such... odd and awkward glitch. They have to be in time with the tempo... and they sound very out of place. Use in it in moderation... it's not bad, but I think it was poor.

The minor: the pitching. Very odd pitching. I usually do not touch this unless I intend on doing a fade out on my drums, or something along those lines. It's good that your messing with that... but that makes the song feel unorganized, along witht he slicing. I think you may need to practice some more with this. I'll be glad to help. PM me if you do. Keep practicing and keep it real~

Sounds like U used sample drum beat

I think I've heard it before, sry, but Originality is fun.
Fairly good track though


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Hmm, sorta matches.

Hmm, sorta matches. The mood of the strings doesn't quite fit the drum line though. But it sounds like it matches in time. Good work.
