WOW! Who knew tweaked FL presets and 3xOsc could sound so...awesome ^^. This is my submission for Rig's Fl-Core competition. Actually I didn't put too much effort. Felt a bit tired. Threw this up in 2 hours. Tweaking that kick was probably the hardest part.

Samples (tweaked)
-Some hats and kick from demo projects
-Snare 5a and 5b from Fl Drum Kit 5
-Clap from Dance in Legacy in Packs (reversed)
-Both leads were by 3xOsc <--- Woo
-Cymbal from demo projects

Rate/Review (Keep in mind this competition was made for using Fl presets and no VSTs and other presets)

I don't know much about house and even less about FL presets, so this will mostly be personal opinion over how it links to either of those things, because...opinions require no intelligence ;D Anyway:

Nass drum beat. Got a lot of different sounds going on there and a few nice sounding automations to make the beat sound interesting and more than your usual bass/snare/clap ensemble. Really like the kind of sweeping-sound drum you had, it was very characteristic but didn't cut through the texture at all, so it just added a nice bit of colour.
The first synth was nice and prominent, but the end of it felt a little out of tune, in places? Like, it hit the note it was meant to, but then started sliding down into obscurity a little before looping again. Maybe that's just me, but it did seem a little odd.

The transition at 0:45 was a little abrupt, with just the lead synth changing and nothing else. Not that the change in lead wasn't a good idea, it's just that you just flicked one switch off and the other on, instead of building up more into the transition.

The subtle change in drum beat at 1:03 was nice, as was the re-entry of the first synth at 1:15. Could have used some cohesion between the two synths in the 30 seconds between the transition and then, but it's not that big of a deal.
By 90 second in it does, however, start to feel quite repetitive as you've just had those two synths throughout and they're quite small loops to be using. At the very end you start automating them a little more, and I think if you'd started that earlier on it probably would have saved you, because while the synths would be playing the same thing, they'd sound different due to the automation, giving that needed variety.

Generally, it's a pretty cool piece. Given you did this all with presets, it's pretty nicely done because everything pretty much fits together. Work on the first transition a little more and maybe add in a third synth for some more variety, and I think this would have been fine.

Heh, thanks for the review. When I hit the 0:45 seconds part, it was getting pretty late, and I got lazy, so I just made some excuse to finish the song :S. Not a good effort but I like the beat at the start.

It's ok

-I'm starting to get the feeling that everyone is using the same type of Oscillation from FL studio. Third song from the competition that I have reviewed using the same type. It does sound good but you didn't do enough to make it sound above and beyond. The amount of time that you worked on this shows that.

-The bass and snare are very deep and hit hard. It makes the melody sound better than it would have otherwise. As said before the 3xOsc sounds great but it seems like it's the standard and you need to do a lot to make it sound better than everyone else's submissions for this competition. The clap was alright but i'm not sure if you can do much with it considering you have to use the stock sounds from FL. The cymbal however sounds suprisingly crisp.

-The song is very repetitive in the whole of things. It seems to just cycle around the melody without too much variation. It does come in nicely with successive beats coming in louder and louder but when it reaches it's peak it just stayed stagnant for a bit before you brought in the clap. You could remove part of it or add something to make it sound better. The fruity part introduced at :45 is a welcome change but it's about all that was different.

-Getting back to the snares you used. I think they were excellent choices to go along with the bass. Throughout the song they were in rythm with each other and complimented each other nicely. It was the main focal point of the song and it sounded great. It was just a bit repetitive using it the entire time without too much else overlayed.

DjAbbic responds:

Well, about the osc, I'm not a pro at 3xOsc, and I have no idea how to make it sound 'above and beyond'. Thanks for the review and comments though :)

Would be noice if this had some more arps and more poison. The way you put it is pretty good and I can listen as it is pretty good quality. Anyway, it lacked some variation

DjAbbic responds:

Thanks for the review. I couldn't find much more than these current presets from stock fl samples, so not too great.
