sorry if they seem kind of lame... I had to do a lot of them lol, but rest assured I was honest and dedicated to them all woopee*
Seems a bit generic, like most drum n bass tracks. Sometimes, however, being generic is good. In this song, you were only generic for the first minute or so. Things started getting a lot better when those bongo drums or whatever they were came in, lol. You did a great job at progressing the normal DNB feel into your own little original spark. The mastering is great and the quality is nice. No real errors were noticed in this track, other than room for improvment. I think you should have added a sort of "chill out" section to the track, and then you could have built it back up to a different beat style. Next time, try going above and behyond. Mess around with different sounds, tempos, and beat patterns. You've got the style down. Overall, I enjoyed the track as a personal fan of Drum n Bass. Good job!
Sounds like an awesome video game track to me. Would go excellent in an RTS like StarCraft. Did you play these instruments yourself? I can't tell if they are electronic or not. If you played these, massive props. That takes some real talent. Putting together your own recordings like this is a hard thing to do. Nice mixing and style. My only complaints would be that everything sounds to loud and jumbled at times, almost as if it is all layered ontop of eachother without any panning. Next time, try panning the instruments in the left and right channels. You will be amazingly surprised with the outcome! Other than the lack of depth, this song is fantastic! I can clearly see this song making it into the album. Great job!
Holy shit, that scream is like a thousand angels of death ripping out the heart from my body, and im a masochist, so what i'm trying to say is that IT's FUCKING GREAT. You sound like a professional in this. The guitar rifs are incredible. The drums are fantastic. Like most hardcore tracks, it can be hard when to decide the volume levels should be changed. It is difficult to truly master these kinds of things. For the most part, it was very well mastered with a great field of depth. I only noticed a period of about ten seconds where everything was a clusterfuck... but now that I think about it, people love clusterfucks. So instead of saying, "change the volume levels," im going to say, "nice clusterfuck" Nice clusterfuck! ;) Keep up the great work. It's an honor to have this track on the album! I hope to see much, much more from you. I'm going to go check out some more of your tracks later on after this contest. The combination of guitars, drums, and vocals trully was an orgasmic and head banging experience that makes me want to go on a bloody rampage through an orphanage. I love the synthesizer by the way.
This is a wonderful Instrumental progression into hell. I can picture a tricked out biker guy riding down into the core of the earth with a large blonde beard, pitch black sunglasses, a golden tooth, and a leather jacket. Fantastic work. Well mastered, great field of depth, and a kickass attitude. Short and sweet, just like lustful sex. Aw yeah.
Dj Heat 7.5/10
Ooo, I expected a rap song at first, and then that rave synth came in and I was immediatley surprised. It's kind of like a cross between hip hop and EDM. I love the build up. This is an easy song to get lost to. The only thing I didnt like was how you repeated the "ok check this out" and instead of going to a drop right afterwards, you continued the buildup into a linear feel. That really made me lose the euphoria I was expecting. I was actually hoping for some sort of DNB break, lyrics, change in mood and tempo, dubstep, or something. It would have really made this song A LOT better. Next time, try working on a drop or change of some sort to keep people interested in listening. Otherwise it just sounds repetetive. You seem to be great with buildups though!... but dont make the entire song a buildup.
I just got Skyrim, and I though to myself, "Hmm, this song would actually sound kind of cool while playing Skyrim..." I might actually download this baby and play it when playing next time. I do wish it wasn't as short though! You could have really continued the groove man. I was hoping for an epic continuiation to this song, but never saw a repost. It seemed to me this was more like a very good WIP than anything, but I'm not letting length effect the score by to much. It was varied enough and well done enough to earn my props. Please make more and make them longer. :)
When I first started listening to ambient music, I heard a wonderful piano track that was isolated in beautiful, oceanic percussion and pads. It brought me to tears. I was expecting a similiar song when this first started out, but was saddened when my speakers popped a bit. The very beginning needs some mastering. Then the song continued into a different, unique feel that I quite enjoyed. sadly, however, the off tune notes distracted me from the ambient feel and left me with an odd, "huh" feeling. I think you should have kept the mood presented when this first started out, isolated, serence, calm, and soothing. Off tune notes in songs like this makes it very difficult to succeed. When working on your next song, try to stray away from those off notes and stick to the flow.
Friday Fox 10/10
So, I literally said "wow" outloud as soon as I hit play. That elektro synth is orgasmic.The beat makes me move. I can see myself DJing to this. The backbeats are wonderful. The way you laid out every layer is amazing. Damn man, this is very professional. I love every bit of this song. The first synth that comes into play during the wind like pad made me say "wow" outloud again. I swear to god, if you stop making music anytime soon I'll hunt you down and throw an angry letter attached to a brick through your window that says, "MAKE MOAR MUSIX RITE MEOW" or.. something... yeah im going to use this for a rave IM djing at. Thanks for the awesome track!
To be perfectley honest, the vocals kind of ruined this song. I couldnt understand a word of them. The guitar and drums in the background were extremley repetetive and got to be pretty annoying towards the middle of the song. I see where you were going with this, however, and can recommend a few things for improvement. First, make clearer vocals. You could have put in a sort of voice acting skit in here where a man is speaking at a microphone being interviewed, laughing at the questions everyone below is asking in a sort of anarchist way. Second, switch up your tunes. Make it less repetetive. Add some more guitars riffs, bass, drums, switch it up a bit. Thid, master it all together. Make sure your isntruments dont sound to jumbled. The mastering is alright here actually, so you should be good at mastering. Dont stop! Your good at making these beats, you just have to make a song out of them! This seems more like a loop than a song, and I can see it in a flash game very easily.
That subtractive synthesis is pretty well done, but everything seems so empty. I would suggest practicing more with your sounds and determining which ones sound great together. Ask Space-whale for advice. He is excellent at these sorts of things. He would be a great inspiration to you me thinks. good luck on your reason and cubase stuff, dont give up.
Dementia FX 8/10
Nice and chill. I enjoyed the simplistic and icy beat pattern mixed with the large pressence of Electronic Dance Music (EDM). Sounds like a great loop for a flash game. I would recommend experimenting with the use of sound effects and other things to spicen everything up a bit. Right now there isn't all that much going on, and I feel there is room for many more elements to this song. However, I do enjoy the chilling elements. Keep it up!
