Another one of my Drum N Bass tracks, a work in progress. I fixed this up in about 1 hour I guess.

As usual, it's a smooth type of Drum N Bass bass. There are some strings in this with a synthed sound but it's fairly simple. I also chucked in a piano with the melody to add some sort of depth.

The string sound are two different SoundFonts layered, and the synth and piano are some modified Sytrus and FL Keys presets. The piano has a delay and reeverb effect on it.

Originally I tried to make a 'raw' or 'hard' Drum N Bass track and the bass I used was a lot more dirtier and distorted but I changed my mind when I realised, IT SUCKED! So, I reduced the distortion on the bass and made it a little softer then added the rest of the instruments.

The hardest part of this track was the beat, I was constantly changing the EQ's to try and find the most suitable sound. At first the beat was quite loud but I changed the EQ's and gave the beat a softer sound by layering a few hats and snares together in some places.

So, this is an old failed project which I've changed into a new project and hopefully has some sort of potential...

...but that's all up to you guys!

By the way, I use desktop speakers and haven't listened to it in headphones yet so if there are some low frequency problems let me know because I can't hear them.

Tell me what you think and leave suggesstions.



Love it... I really dig the progression of the strings especially. Very nice reverse build up there. Drums are nice and tough, and everything sounds pretty much well done. Just a bit of frequency problems.. just a bit lol. Sounds great. I love it. Where do you get sound fonts, anyway?... oh.. and check out my latest track if you can. People aren't just giving me the advice I need. Well.. very nice track, fave'd and 5'd.


c: Tis really good.

It's good, and has great progression. Good for some kind of scene in a game or something. Keep makin' music :D

Thanks for the feedback!

Glad you liked it!


I like what you have so far.
But I listen to a lot of DnB and I think that percussion needs to come out more.
A lot more. :D
That's the whole point of DnB. :P

People want to hear...drums...and bass.
Pan out some of the drum kit too.
I think that'll sound nice.

You got a pretty nice piece of work here.
Keep it up.

I'll make the beat a little louder but I don't want to make it like some hardcore Drum N Bass. I'll see what I can do.

Yeah, I noticed the bass being so quiet as soon as I listened to it in headphones. Unfortunately this was after I uploaded it. I've changed it already.

I tried the panning thing but it make the beat a bit too soft, I'll try it again with different effects and stuff. I'll see what I can do. I'll try re-uploading it later if I get time.

Thanks for your suggestions, I appreciate it.


so smooth... great work!
keep working. i listen it then! :D
