!!Very Intense!!

I want to be able to compose like you!! I love it sounds really smooth..
BTW: it's composed in fl? If yes which plugin did you use?

SteakJohnson responds:

yep its fl, i believe i used the synth sytrus for just about everything. And lol theres people i want to compose like too. You shud be proud of your tunes tho they are quality liquid dnb!

. . .

I like a lot of the LFO work you got going on with your synths. Interesting timbre choices for the percussion too. I think maybe a little less modulation and decay on those hats then you could squeeze some more in there for quicker feeling motion & higher energy.

Also if you want that "epic drop" effect in DnB usually you would want to change up to more intense percussion instruments(mainly the kick and snare). With my intros I tend to keep a band pass on the kick to lower the energy feel of it, then drop in a full unfiltered kick on the drop. I also tend to save basslines for the drop too. Anyways I couldn't comment any more on mixing as I am not in the studio with my monitors.

SteakJohnson responds:

hey thanks for the review. Now that you say this I might just low pass the bassline until 2:15 a bit, and maybe hipass the drums somewhat

now thats intense

that is some amazing bass you got going on here! Although try to make the kicks more out there and pumping! and i felt the song itself had to many layers of effects and such and there is to much back ground noise Sorry i did not have much time to give you a proper review


SteakJohnson responds:

Thanks for review, and lol I always overdo the fx

incredible bass

your bass is incredible, but it comes in too early. placed it whenever the drop is to make it a hell of a lot more powerful. you've got a really impressive neuro style, too. i love heavy modulation and distortion.

my only complaint is that this track in general is somewhat messy. you have so many noises with reverb and it takes away from the actual bass melody, which is what should be focused on the most. that's why professional neuro tracks don't contain so many background effects and such.

what program do you use?

SteakJohnson responds:

I use fl studio 8, bass here is made from sytrus. And yeah i agree the song is kinda messy, but im a workin on that. Thanks for the review!
