My net died, and somehow the downtime resulted in the creation of this video game-esque Drum'N'Bass song. I spent about 12 hours getting everything to sound how I wanted, and this is the most dynamic song I've ever made, so please give me your fullest and most honest opinions. If nothing else, I want advice on how I can make it better if you think it sucks! ^_^




Shweet track you've got here. Loved the new sounds you have going here :D

I think for me, it could have used some drum samples that were a bit more unique. Granted, this is coming from a guy who has to listen to all the samples Sam comes up with lols so I may be nitpicking. The mixing was pretty good (watch your peaks - it sounds like it's close to clipping on the kicks) and I could tell the amount of dynamics you put into this. It was awesomesauce, so it's a small complaint about the samples and potential peaking.

I also think it got a tad repetitive - while you switched it up at the end, I think you could have either condensed the song into about 3 minutes (shortening intro and reducing the amount of bars per pattern) or you could have introduced some elements. The parts at the end were pretty shweet :)

In terms of introducing new elements, maybe a shweet pad to add BG ambience or a more defined lead. The Square lead you have in there could have been made either dirtier or have been paced a bit faster to make it vary a bit.

The song feels like it grows throughout. If that's what you were going for it works, but there's no ups and downs here (chorus/verse or lull/climaxes etc). So that may be one of the issues for me.

So the song's definitely epic man! Once again can tell the improvements you're making :D Looking forward to your next track!!

Heh, I always have a bit of trouble with my mixing. ^^;

And yeah, it's s'posed to be video game inspired- somewhat repetitive, no real major ups and downs. But thanks a million! :D Much love!
