i think the OHH every beat was rather distracting personally, but otherwise its a great percussion track. very awesome!
Awesome sounding breaks in there
great song and howd you modulate that reese? I always just use bandpass filter, should I use others or multiple at once?
Modding the reese? I used bloodoverdrive and Parametric EQ 2 - Notch Filter. This one had a lot of highs on the breaks, so i'm planning on fixing this one some time later. It's an okay track. Thanks.
(Oh, and you should use others, even multiples. You'll never know what you might get.)
great. Seriously the speed, I feel the power flowing in me. Got a unique sound. Great job my friend.
P.S. I could use a hint or two from you in the DnB Collab, because both of us are FL users :P
Lol. Well I shall give hints to you my good man.
After hearing this...
It makes me wonder how crap ass songs get on Top 5 tracks ever list, ya know?
This song was a great listen for me, and i fuckin love that bass, hi speed and everything. Just the perfect song! DL'd
Thank you, mate. I'm glad you loved it. =) I wonder the same... just how does that happen...
Better than most DnB in the Audio Portal, so you get extra points for caring about DnB. I only have a few complaints about this one. First, it's not a full, structured song, but I don't really care about that, as long as it's good musically, which this is. My main complaint, as usual with dnb in the audio portal, is the drums. The snare drum isn't really punchy enough in my opinion; it doesn't pierce through the bass and everything else. Come to think of it, neither does the kick. The hihats might be too strong in the mix. The kick and snare should generally be the loudest parts of the drums. Some proper mixing would solve that though. Overall, it's not bad, the reese has a nice texture and the automation is good. The ambient sounds in the background are nice. The intro was good, but a more powerful drop would've felt better, you know? In songs like this, it's good to build up some sort of suspense before the drop. Just something that would smack the listener across the face. I felt you could've done more with the ending instead of just fading out, but it's not bad.
Overall, good job. Of course, don't take what I say as what you must do (not that you would anyway); I'm still learning. I need to be able to get those kinds of ambient sounds like you have in your intro. I love them.
So to conclude this long review, I'll give you a tip a pro gave to me: "Pretend you're making music for a huge arena, not just a room." I still have to work on that lol.
5/5 to put it above all the non-dnb songs in the dnb section lol
P.S. Do you have AIM or something? Because you seem to actually care about DnB and if you want, I could give you some tips or something. Or maybe we could collab.
Sure mate. Thanks for the in depth review.. I spotted some of the things you spotted yourself lol. Mixing's a bit off in this particular track. I know the drums aren't as punchy as I wanted them to be, sadly. =/ and that sample is pretty punchy. (Time to mess with the filters again ;D)
I'm glad the reese pulled through. That one was fun to make. I felt giddy after listening to it play out lol. Lots of things that I need to work on. Usually I'm good with the drops.. and suspense is something I also have to work on XD I usually do fade outs when I don't know how to end it. Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely keep that in mind!
(My AIM is right on my front page.)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
