Pitbulljones- Sunday Morning
Started this last yesterday, finished it today. A chilled out, atmospheric track this, using a slow downed jazz rhythm on the drums. All synth work, no live instruments. Have a listen, let me know what you think. Cheers.
Really atmospheric and calm. The synthesizers are good, and the drums sounded good for it being off of a program, not too robotic. It could of went on longer, but that's alright. Really enjoyed it.
Thanks for the review. I always try to create atmosphere in my tracks so it's nice to know I have achieved that aim :) The drums are from a programme called additive drums by XLN audio, so they are sampled drums with midi loops programmed in, just need to tinker with the kits and levels etc. I am consdering posting a longer mix but need some ideas, if I do one I shall let you know. Thanks for the kind words.
how do u get audio like that fam its sick
I use various synths and effects, mix it down well, keep the levels nice and pan it appropriately. Basically, taking a bit of time and care to make the mix sit well. Hope that helps : )
Very cool track! It definitely lends itself to a movie soundtrack or even a Terraria/Minecraft style game. Great work on getting those software drums sounding real too. Everything seems well thought out and done with a delicate touch. No heavy-handedness on effects or anything. I don't mind the sudden end, but I think the song could've actually gone longer.
Thanks for the review. I get a fair few people commenting I should do soundtrack stuff but I have no idea where to start. The drums were from a programme called additive drums, all fully sampled with multiple kits and samples. I do own kit but it's much better using a programme that can do the drums for you. I'm glad you think the track is quite delicate and soft as I really put a lot of time into the sample choice and mixing of the track, taming it back and letting the mix breathe :)
I may very well work on an extended version of this track. One of my bandmates is gonna lay down some bass lines and guitar. I shall let you know if I do.
A very atmospheric track indeed. It made me think of intros to old 80's and 90's movies, like Escape from L.A. The song starts off good enough, with a cool filter effect at the lead. Or maybe it's the pitch? Anyways, there's one big thing and one little thing I think you could have changed to make the piece better.
The big thing is the dryness of the drums. It kind of works, but mostly doesn't. The most beneficial effect that I believe could have been added was a filter to enhance the chillness of the track. The small thing is just how the piece ends by just dropping every instrument. Not everybody like this, but I think for this piece, fading out some of the instruments and then dropping what's left would transition better.
Overall, a great ambient track with some very atmospheric pads and FX to illustrate the feeling. And considering none of this is analogue, I can only wonder how great your future works will sound when you get some proper mics and instruments!
Thank you very the review. I always aim to create a good atmosphere in my tracks. Create imagery, that sort of stuff so thanks for the comparisions. I agree the main lead in synth could be tamed a tad, if I go back to do this I may drop the level slightly. I was comtemplating something more 'electronic' and lo fi for the my drums but settled on a nice verbed kit, different tastes there :)
I do post guitar tracks on here as well as stuff by my band called ilovelamp, though i rarely do any synth work with them. I should look into buying some gear, but having high qaulity software helps a lot.
Thanks for the review, it's really appreciated.
