Here's my first Demo for my new label. Work in Progress of course. I spent a while on this. Created the melody and everything from scratch using a Korg R3 Keyboard.

More Distortion, Leads, Breaks, FX, Vocals and Better timing is coming. I didn't have time to sync the tracks but wanted to share anyways to see the reviews.

So here is WIP v1 of All Caught Up. Expect better version in about a week.

Personally I don't like reviewing WIP's...

Let's see... It lost my attention, badly, like I almost fell asleep.

It's a very basic template. Like very very basic. Kick/Hat/Clap/Bass/Chord Block/Lead. Try adding some stuff that would make me say "hey that's bad ass", like automation clips perhaps.

I'm emailing you the song I was planning on finishing for you. Do you hear how after the vocals a synth sweeps in to almost "replace" the voice? and then I added some glitch effects and filtering to the voice? I also am in love with distortion, so i'm sure you could hear a lot of that.

The instruments you use tend to be mundane, and very Korg R3 Keyboardy. I don't even use a keyboard in my stuff xD

Maybe after you add your distortion and leads, it'll sound better, but I would

A) change the beat up
B) Change the chord structure up
C) Pick different instruments, or edit them
D) Be sure to choose a very "bossy" lead. Something that's in your face D:<!!!!

Oh and of course syncing needs to be fixed, but since you used a keyboard i could understand.

ShadowsOfLight responds:

Hahaha yeah for a 4am mix it sounded great at first. I will definitely fix it! Thanks! I've got a lot of work to do regarding other things. Making songs isn't really that easy anymore x\

Sweet :)

Yeah haha you definitely need to work on timing issues :)
But like the guy below me said, definitely add some chords in there..
Also, if you're gonna make a song as long as this one is, variation is key, also intriguing melodies/ awesome stuffs :D haha
Otherwise, really good song!!


ShadowsOfLight responds:

Yup yup! My variations and timing went out the window once it hit 3AM and I attempted to make this at 4 haha But very true, variety is key!

All Caught Up {WIP v1} / KittehTron's Perrspective

Please do upload a quantized verrsion, and I'd rrecommend cutting the trracks lengh in half because therre isn't enough progrression to hold the interrest of the listenner.
Try to add a sub-bass spice things up. I hearr a whining saw in the backgrround that should be rreplaced with a simple chorrd prrogrression. I do like you drrums : )!!

Note: I see tons of potential, send us yourr best!
Final Scorres: 4/10
Rrating: 2/5

ShadowsOfLight responds:

Thanks for the advice :) I'll be sure to try that!
