Something I recorded yesterday with a friend of mine...he did the guitars and vocals, and I did everything else. lol

The beginning and ends are pretty good, but I haven't worked on the middle yet. I want to do some sort of massive DnB stuff there. What do you guys think of the mix so far, though? I'd love to get your opinions on the sound, as I haven't mixed a song like this before.

jahhhhhz, rig sounds tight. If you end up doing some dnb stuffs I might add a little bit of reverb or something to the lead vocals to make them seem a little less up front and in your face... dunno. At the moment the vocals seem to be the primary focus but most of the modern contemporary dnb sound has more emphasis on less traditional aesthetics.

When that hi hat comes in I'm a little thrown off. There's such a soft segment right before it, but it leads into something a lot harder. I'd either shorten the solo hi hat rhythm or give it some more dynamics... dunno. It's really just that little hi hat solo that's throwing me off. If I were drumming live, I'd either count to four and come in on one or I'd count to four and come in on the count of two knowing full well that the rest of the band practiced with a rest on one. Counting to eight just seems... awkwardly long...

Dunno. You got a cool contemporary pop rock song at the moment but if your gonna turn it around with some dnb, a few little thing have to change to help build up to the shift in aesthetic focus. Curious, are you a muse fan by any chance? This kind of reminds me of their work :P

A song called Concoction, and the reason I call it that is because.. it's basically a selection of musical ideas that have been floating around in my head for who knows how long, and I just.. just did not know what to do with them here, so I glued them altogether the best I could. Personally, I'm not EXTREMELY satisfied with it now, particularly it's awkward length, lack of vocals (no clue what to sing for it).. But I am happy with some of the musical ideas and how they sound. I just don't know what to touch upon here!

the overall of this song sounds to me like a ... chaotic string of random percussion hits. however, towards the end of the track it gets a bit more orginized wich is, according to me, required to tweak the song without disturbing the intention of the song. you could mess around some more with that bass/zoom/kick (or whatever its called). also a bit of melody like things wouldnt hurt. melody can be chaotic too.

hope it was a bit helpful ^^'

Yeah you right, this thread isn't really turning out how Nav intended too. ( And i'm guilty of it too ).
This is turning into yet another audio advertisement thread where people just spam their latest stuff

Something I came up with the other day, I would like some advice on how to make this "beefier" if you know what I mean. Like, give it a more professional feel. I used FL Studio 8 XXL for this.

This is a recent piece for me. A friend challenged me with a certain style, and I decided that combining elements of hip hop, rock, electronica, and such were appropriate. Tell me what you think.

It's Epic Classical by the way, so I expect praise :P.
