I tried making a dnb thing..



Rated 4 / 5 stars

An interesting first attempt.

Perusing the ol' DnB section here, and I find this. I will say, for a first attempt, at least you have the style in mind, and understand how Drum and Bass sounds like, and is supposed to sound like (in terms of the beat), as for the melodic themes, they're up to interpretation.

But, now that you have the focus of how it 'sounds' like, now you must develop your style and your focus of genre, if not a wide range of them to incorporate into your style and songs. Once that's done, then you can focus on the actual mix.

But that's besides the point and for future reference. Onto the now:

This track is... interesting. Super heavy bass drum with a flimsy snare (to be frank) and some over-shadowed hats. There's the basis for the drum kit, for sure, You have that at least.

The melodic lines are quite cool, I think. They mostly drive the song forward, with the raging Low-Fi Bass sort of chiming in every now and then. Good accompaniment, old chap. Not much else besides these few things that make up your song.

I will say, the end is.. random XD. I would have rather heard this loop than hear something very out of place occurring at the end of the track, but it adds some flair and flavor though!

For a first attempt, a job well done. I'll keep my eye on you.


(P.S. - This is better than my first attempt, believe me.)

Wow, man.. what a review. I think you summed it all up pretty nicely and I'm not really sure if I disagree with anything. This was really made like in an hour or two when I was bored and wanted to try something different than just recording vocals and guitars. I'm not really sure I'll be making a lot of dnb things but I'll definitely try some more in the future cause I like the drum and bass type of beat. Idk why but I just see so much more in it than straight techno beats.

Calling the end "random" is quite fitting :D. I think I might try some dnb with vocals in the future.. that would be cool.. well if I ever get to it..

Well thanks mate for this worthy review and I'll definitely check out some of your stuff. I already heard something and it sounded great.

wow, a great first mix.

seems like ur finally trying some FL Studio, eh? nice work here, LOVE the beat!

It's gonna take awhile to get all the ups and down and find what instruments u like and such... there's a lot to work with. Keep up the good work, this was HELLA better than my first try at FL Studio...

Doumaaa responds:

thanks! well it's not really my first try in fl studio, but my first try on d'n'b.. I'm still an flstudio noob though and yeah I agree there's a lot to learn there and I'm starting to figure out that plugins are necessary..

Amazingly awesome!!!

You're so good at making these kind of music. Why only 100 listens? This sounds like those awesome action game music. Very good job. And I actually like the ending. XD

Doumaaa responds:

Hey thanks a lot buddy, glad you like it. Well it's a first try, but I think I'll make more..

Cheers :)

Good until the end

The Buildup and drums were impressive to me, but I feel that the ending was weak. The Music stops for well over a second at 1:22 and then goes to a much less intense section that in my mind had no connection with the rest of the song, for only a few seconds before fading out. I personally feel that the song would be much better without it, or maybe replacing it with a whole different ending that contains elements from the song before, where instruments are being taken away instead of added (anti-buildup) and made into the ending.

Doumaaa responds:

hey thanks for this review, yeah well the end that was something I wanted to add to the song but fl studio started lagging and I new I just had to finish the song so I put there as a weird ending ;) I agree it doesn't really fit there..

Cheers mate
