DeseNutz - Moonlight [WIP]

A sort of ambient DnB. One of my stranger ideas....

The name describes the inspiration. This is a WIP, but im still curious as to what I should improve.

Some I already know about:
-Polish up transitions
-Add variation to the drum track
-Instuments need some eq work and minor touches

The techniques in this track are slightly inspired by Waterflames composing style (no main lead, simpler leads that build on each other). Ive always wanted to try something like that.

I have only worked for 2 hours on this, so i wouldnt be surprised if there is a ton of things needing fixing...

I love it when the beat explodes in from the intro... :)

Update 1/17/2009:
+Improved drum variation and added various subtle things (still needs work tho)
--Added open highhat
--Added ride cymbal
+Added possible lead sequence (transition into and out of needs work)
+Added a kind of 'chill mode' that comes after the lead sequence (rough draft)
+Made bass 'edgier'

Update 1/21/2009:
+Fixed some minor annoyances with the track

There is one that I cant seem to fix, and that is the inconsistency of the attack on the first synth's envelope. It becomes really obvious around 1:09 - 1:26, and I havnt yet found a solution for it :p

Also, I think I got the velocity wrong on the three snare hits at 1:32

Update 3/2/2009:
+Finally fixed the consistancy! It sounds uniform throughout the entire thing now! :D
+Also, been messing with the velocities of all the drums, I think I about got it perfect now.

nice Techno song, it feels like ambience music

DeseNutz responds:

Lol, thanks little man!

That was the goal! ...Although I wasnt quite sure if i had reached it, its almost too fast to my ears :p

Thanks for tha review!

Smooth, Nice flow, good transition!

I like it. It's smooth, mellow, a little dark. Nice flow.

DeseNutz responds:

Lol thx, those were all points I was (more or less) shooting for ^^

Now I just gotta see if I can keep from messing it up before I finish it...


Now it's ambient yes. I really like the bells and whistles of the thing. The drum track is a bit i think too fast paced. I love it anyways xD

DeseNutz responds:

Appreciate the honest review!

And to be honest myself, Im not really sure what to do with the drums; some days they seem fast, and others they seem too slow, so ive just left them alone :P

But ill keep that idea in mind, and glad you enjoyed it :)
