I Like The Beat and The Bass Line. The drums sound top notch and the piano brings it all together.
The only reason for the nine is I can hear the loss of focus in the latter half of the song. It does not take away from the overall piece but it seems out of place from the rest.
Overall Good Work.
Thanks for the review! Yeah the end transforms a little too much... didn't know what else to do. glad you like the drums too, that makes me happy since those were what I was really trying to get a good sound out of.
Yeah man, it's those instruments. One of the first things I've noticed in Hip-Hop production is that it doesn't matter if you have the best melody in the world. Until you have top notch sounds, the track will sound mushy and awkward.
Your piano sounds like it's a stock sound. Hook yourself up with a soundfont piano, specifically a Steinway. Also, try using some VSTs for your synth sounds; even the orchestrated ones like your strings. Look into VSTs like Z3ta+ and Native Instrument's Massive which both offer amazing wave-shaping abilities. This will give you an edge on your synth sounds.
For percussion try looking into Big Fish Audio or even look up some of your favorite producer's kits. They're bound to have one out there. These kits are great and offer high quality sounds that cover every sound range and really make a track sound professional.
Like I said man, This is a really good track and has lots of potential. It's just a matter of changing up the sounds. I've been there. I'm going through it now. I'm just learning which sounds work and which don't.
Keep it up.
Thanks for reviewing and especially for the insight and advice.
The piano parts it was is killing it.
The saw parts "meh", not so much, maybe you could find a more smoother sound to replace it. Because the song IS so smooth it just seems to be distracting. but other than that, the music is really nice
Thanks for reviewing.
