So, I never really intended for Only The Beginning to end the way it did... I wanted to do more with it, but I just couldn't figure out what at the time.

And over the past few days, I've figured out what I wanna do with it... so here it is...

On top of extending the song, I also redid the first "big section"... because I didn't like how I did it the first time. And to be honest, I'm still not 100% satisfied with it, but it's a hell of a lot better now than it was before at least.

Also... this is officially the most CPU intensive project I have ever done, I have so much automation and so many VSTs running that it lags my computer like hell every time the autosave kicks into gear.

Lastly... I've used a new synth (NI Razor) I bought not that long ago for the first time in the extended section. It's just a lame little lead to compliment the bass and plucks... but gotta start using it somehow.

Curious to know if you designed your kick and clap your self or if you used samples. Great track though.


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

The 2 kicks (Layered) and the claps/snares are from varying Vengeance sample packs.

Glad you like it.

This is pretty tight! If you want punchier drums try New York compression? But I like this :)


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it.

the melody is awesome!!! The syth are really cool, but the distortion of the bass goes too high (the pitch is too high), it is awful (for me)! But don't worry I think nearly everyone does that and this song if it isn't from that, is really cool.


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the "distortion of the bass goes too high", but glad you like it I guess.

Damn son o.o this song is pretty beast. I love the bass that plays with the drums; It's vibrating my router XD. My only suggestion is that you should make your drums a bit louder and punchier, especially the snare. It would "ring" out the higher frequencies like what most drum and bass songs do.

I'm actually curious how your VSTs and samples didn't stretch during the tempo change. I use FL Studio 10 and it destroys my songs if just change the tempo ;-; You must teach me your ways

I just found out bout' you. Your songs are pretty awesome ;) I suck at modulation and dealing with the VSTs -.- I'm more of a melodies guy, but you're really creative. Keep up the good work!


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah, punchier drums in general have always been something I've been striving to fix, I dunno, old habits die hard and my drums get lost in the mix a lot of the time. My latest song I remedied that... maybe a little too much though... I'll find a nice middle ground eventually.

I'm not really sure what to tell you about the stretching, because I've never had a problem with my samples stretching with tempo changes, so I've never really actively done anything to prevent it.

Thanks though, glad you like my stuff.

Damn, I wish I could make music this good, this is one of the best D'n'B songs I've ever heard.
