Gravidi - The Permanent Destination

I spent roughly a month working on this and I tried many new techniques as well as ideas. Tempo: 140bpm. Key: Cmin, modulates to Fmin.

This track is my first made using FL Studio. I used Massive and Z3Ta+2 as my main synths as well as NI Una Corda. Drums are from Antidote Audio's sample packs and Damned Essential Drums.

If you have any thoughts, please, don't hesitate to comment or rate. Thanks!

From your same group on the NGUAC competition.
Overall a very good piece. Your arrangement is quite good, and even if a little more would have been nice, the song is quite melodic for a Dubstep centered piece.
The mixing is good, and your use of instruments is quite nice.
The overall atmosphere is good, specially in the intro and outro.

Good luck ;)

I like the dark mood at the beginning and the instrumentation, which certainly helped facilitate the ominous nature of the track. It’s a little slow to progress, but I enjoyed the dissonance at :58 and the subsequent vocal samples. You have a good amount of reverb in here that helps to create a nice, full texture. The drop at 1:28 was thoroughly enjoyable, although after that I was looking for some stronger melodic content, which isn’t really present for much of the piece. I liked the descending synth line at 2:40 or so. The reverb might detract from the mixing a tad, but personally it doesn’t bother me that much. The atmospheric breakdown at 3:20 was also a tasteful point of structural relief. I’m really impressed this is the first track you made using FL Studio. I would’ve liked some more variation on the drop the second time around, but that’s a small complaint. The outro was effective, and just as mysterious as the opening in a way. Solid work. I like this piece a lot!

8.5/10

I honestly thought I reviewed this in the past. Well, now I can give it a review. Best of luck with NGADM btw.

It has your familiar chords which I like because it helps me remember that it is your song. I am glad to hear your experiment with so many genres recently. For a track like this, stronger chords might be required (with a nice deep sub layered under them), so keep practicing chord design. You will be very satisfied when you make a really good set of chord patches.

This track has quite a unique vibe. The sound design (growls) and mixing needs work. I can't lie to you about that. A primary example is that the drums can punch a little more. You can achieve that using regular side-chain methods or doing the audio automations yourself (easier and more efficient). Keep practicing with these aspects and listen carefully for details that could be improved in your next mix or composition after you complete projects and look back on them.

There is no doubt that you have been improving a whole lot, so don't stop! Keep up the great work!

Hey man, thanks for the review. I'll keep these mixing ideas in mind for my next track, specifically what you said about the drums. I'll also try some new stuff with the chords. Seriously, thanks for you thoughts! :)
