Aha, this definitely is a WIP xD I'd've been worried if you'd make a 0:17 second track and said it was a whole song =P

Anyway. When I first played it I heard some kind of click right at the start? It sounded like the reverb off the snare drum or something...maybe it's just my headphones, but if it is there, it's a little odd? Especially as it leads into a few seconds of silence.

The lead synth has a really cool sound to it, you've definitely got the 'wobbles' down. A pointer definitely would be how to develop the melody from there on in; whether you're going to keep the melody the same and add more synths in to thicken the texture, or go into a new theme. This works well as an introduction, but I do think that for the next bit something needs to change up just to give that sense of build.

Although this is a WIP, etc., I'd say that for a drum and bass song this is lacking a fair bit of both? I mean, the lead synth has a pretty bassy sound, but wouldn't be harmed by a really nice and low bass line to thicken it out a bit. In the same way, the snare sounds nice and has a cool echo to it...but it's pretty high in the trebles and is the only drum to feature in this part. Either making the snare more bassy, or adding a tom/kick drum into the mix I think would help here.

But for 17 seconds, it's gotta lot of promise, so keep it up.

no yeah, there is a little click, its just the way the track rendered, if this weree a full song, i would care

i actuallly think im going to bring in new ambient tthemes when i come back to this one

thanks for the review man

Nice little step.

Afraid I am not music savvy, so I am not sure what "dubstep" means, but this sounds good for a work in progress.

As for pointers where to go next with the melody? Personally I think maybe a bit of beatboxing, or even a decent rap might sound good in it, but as I said I am not entirely up to snuff on my music.

I look forward to the finish product, what you have so far is good. Keep it up.

lol, i dont know anyone who can rap, and im not gona search ng for a rapper, they're all busy with their little knockout thingy

dubstep...its kind of like rap, from some of the stuff ive heard...but a lot of it isnt. idk i actually dont know much about it either


-The wobble in the short loop had a nice reverberating touch to it where it doubled over. It complimented the kick of the drum nicely.

-It comes in nice with the first six seconds of audio but the break in between wobbles sounds a bit awkward to me and could of benefitted from a different drum combination.

-The abrupt end makes it seem like you just left it and never came back to it. I usually don't like work that isn't finished. If you ever get the time to you should.

SessileNomad responds:

i had never worked on a wobble before, so i decided to throw it up here for input on it, generally my wips have a lot more work on them :)

Sounds good...

I liked this song, it's a wip, but I think you can improve it, since it's in progress... I lked the sound, it's pretty technologic, it has a nice sound for an intro, I think it could fit in a game menu, or in the credits, I just think that you could add a new beat and powerful drums, it'd give a nice sound for the song, adding some quiet guitar solos would be nice, just in the back, to give some variety for the song...

The beat was pretty repettitive, in the full song, you could add more beats, variating, since the same kind of beat gets a bit repetitive in the final result, but I think you have enough potential to make a nice song, you have creativity and experience, but please, make the right choices, don't mess up with this song...

Anyways, keep it up, I wanna listen to the final result, I expect a great song from you Sessile, I know you're a great musician, keep it up, guy!!
