Song for 1st round of the NGADM.

My opponent for this round: DjAbbic

Whole lotta work went into this song. It's probably the most work I've put into a song for a while. It was a pleasure to make :)




Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good But.

A few Problems

1. The flanger or flangus Effect on your bass I think ruins the song to be honest. I think the choice Of bass could of been better as well. The melody Is fine just the sample / effects just don't work.

2. The bass is overpowering the kick when the bass and the kick are playing together you don't even the kick sounds like its not even a kick. You need to work on making them both be noticed not just the bass Maybe you just over compressed the bass or Have them both on close to the same frequency I am not sure but I know it needs work.

3. OK just listen at :47 you can tell the kick drum is clipping everything in the song And I am not sure what you did but You made the kick overpowering and the bass even more overpowering then that.

What I suggest is look into how to probably eQ and compress your song cause it was done very amateur here

I would like you to know I am not trying to be harmful here but more a less help you further you understanding in mastering And mixing. I would suggest you look into how a compressor works and how to probably use one

The strings at the first where good like someone below me said The need more attack so it not so sudden and It will make it sound more realistic

The build up was very nice a good use of the filter and It wasn't overused which is also good.

The drums other the the kick where good maybe a little more variation would have goon a long way.

It seems like melody and the bass are playing the exact same melody which isn't a problem but I find it lacks variation in the song make it less exciting

The piano was a nice touch but again seemed to play relatively the same melody the whole way through

I think the glitch stuff you threw in was a good idea But I found it was sudden and you didn't give us your audience a chance to see it coming. It sorta felt random to me like it wasn't suppose to be there but Only because you didn't have it anywhere else n the song

Lastly I found the outro was very generic and could of been done better just lowering the volume is a lazy was of going about it.

I don't find this to be a bad song I think it has potential I just think you need to think about and listen to how things sound more and realize when something isn't working

And again I am not trying to attack you just giving my opinion

well I hope to here more from you in the future and I will continue to listen to your stuff and see how things progress

Have A Great Day :)

I pretty much agree with everything you said. This song kinda sucks. I thought it was outstanding when I posted it. That's usually the case with all my songs :P

But hey, I'm still learning, even after producing for 2 years.

Thanks for all of the critique and advice. I really appreciate it :)

Not a bad effort.

It definetely shows that you put tonnes of work into this. The intro was particularly great, those strings/pads really worked well in setting off the overall atmosphere. The intro was however a bit too long, but the transition into the main section was great. The main section too was superb, a nice glitchy drum line, with a good melody as well. More depth and a stronger bass line would have been better however, as the bass is a bit weak in my opinion. I particularly like the faint piano line as that gave some more depth to the piece. The outro was decent, although a fade out is getting a bit overused these days. Nevertheless, this song is quite good, it did get a bit repetitive though, especially the drums, but other than that i think its got great potential. Good work.

Note: This is your review from the NGADM Round 1 and as always im posting it here for your convenience.

to pure-metal-UTA

idk if i'm right because i just started to produce like a couple weks ago, but im pretty sure he just sidechain compressed the hell out of the strings, in my opinion it sounds good but maybe a little mellower, great track im really liking this, im gonna try my hand at some dubstep in the coming weeks, 4/5, 8/10

UncleSqueezins responds:

Yep. There's a big ass sidechain on the strings :P

Glad you liked it :)

Good, but mastering issues are present.

Perhaps you put a longer attack time on the string synths at the beginning, but it certainly seems to me that the bass drum at the beginning overpowers the rest of the instruments. The rest of the song is definatley nothing I've ever heard from dubstep on youtube. The progessions you use on the rhythm is good, and it fits the title very well.

The piano during the main part I can tell is the melody, and it's a good melody, but it's too quiet, and the rest of the instruments are overpowering it, especially the drums closer to the end.

UncleSqueezins responds:

Yeah, I tend to have trouble with mastering. It really subtracts from the overall fell of my music, which reallllllllllly sucks.

I try to move away from the norm of genres and make my own style, which is why this doesn't sound like typical dubstep. This song is more like a classical-trance-dubstep hybrid.

Also, I'll agree that the piano needs to be brought out more.

Thanks for reviewing!

Very nice!

I like this a lot! Great job, the intro was epic, and it was well put together. :)
I have a feeling you used the grossbeat effect at the end though. :P
Sounds great, you should give me a heads up on how to get such a full sounding bass though. :)

Hope to hear more!

UncleSqueezins responds:

Yep, I use Gross Beat to do all of the scratch and shifting effects in my songs. I usually make my own patterns but I just settled for a preset this time since it worked out so well :P

The full sounding bass is mainly coming from the sub bass that I made. I used 3xOsc to make it. After that, I simply removed all of the bands in the sub bass except for the low bass so that I got a really deep sound. I then compressed it to make it louder. Simple as that :P

Thanks for the review!
