Nice little loop you got here man. Nice to see you have a good grasp of electronica music too man, it definetly shows with your creative EQing and meshing of different drum ideas :) I really like the radioesque, crunchy soundy drums that are layed in front of the other rhythm, kind of reminds of me of one of those pieces where a singer would beatbox with the drummer while he wasnt singing. The wooden "clack" sounds that go with the background were a real cool touch too. Pad was nice, sounds drug induced haha. The vintage sounding arp near the end doesnt add really anything to the piece, considering nothing was built upon that idea but maybe your just transitioning into a second part who nows.
It was a refreshing loop shizeet, I would like to see more made out of it because I see this piece has potential. Another criticism was that it didnt feel really full, maybe throw in an abstract bassline inand eventually maybe some metallic higher register percussion to play 8th or 16th notes to help move the piece along in an energetic manner.
Cool thx, glad you liked it. I agree the thing at the end is not great - more like a forced transition due to the length limitations. In the "full version," this section will definitely be longer. As for making it more full, I'll try to make a more active bass part later on for one, though adding the metallic percussion might make it sound more industrial than DnB. Oh well, however it goes then.
I think the main beat is a little too high. Turn down the high freqs a little, they're a bit harsh in my opinion. I think that's what 'YouriX' meant aswell.
Great though, nice atmosphere and smooth pad. I think that synth that comes in before the end, that arp type sound, kinda ruins it. It's too abrupt, turn down the volume a little, make it subtle.
This is my opinion anyway. Wicked job!
Yeah, I know what you mean about the end. I actually had made a dupe of the track which is routed to an effects bus (reverb), but I forgot to turn down the original track when I faded in the wet version. But whatever, this is just a teaser anyway - the full version probably won't even have that bit at all. Thanks for the review though!
The main drum is to high if you just lowerd it a bit then it would be perfect! Remember this loop is a teaser so when people hear it they whant to listen to the original :)
When you are talking about the "main drum", are you referring to the band-passed track or the hard/distorted ones? They are actually both cut from the same loop, just with different effects and slice orientation. But anyways, I'll try shifting the pitches some more in the full version to get a more dynamic feel.
