Dayclubbin' (EQing)

This is the first time I ever try to equalize music (consciously at least) so I would really love to get some feedback. Not much to the song itself it isn't based on any influence or anything just made three different melodies and a beat and bass just to learn how to equalize music. Its named Dayclubbin' because i was listening to Nightclubbing by Iggy Pop. Enjoy.

cool

Good :D

I like it, i must say though i think in the first minute you must've turned the bass up on EQ too much, because it was way overpowering and fuzzy and hurt my ears :/ But the break at 1:58 was really wierd, but good wierd, i liked that melody but then when the creepy ambience music kicked in it just didn't sound right for this kind of track, Liked that melody after the ambience break though, and when that raving dance bit kicked in, :D Apart from all those negative things iw was a great song, maybe go back and fix this track and it would be awesome :D Also if you do, send me a pm ;)Love to hear a fixed version :D
8/10

Yeah I agree i took it too much with the bass, i thought of it as a lead melody i guess. As for the creepy ambience i just wanted a slow down of the tune. I'll try to find the file again and work on it, thank you for the review :D

los tips

remember to duck the bass behind the kick yourself so you get the best sound.
lower all of the freq except the high-pitched ones in the shaker, so you get a "sss" sound or a "chka" kind of thing going, and it won't hide behind your music, but be a part of it.
as it turns out, most artists change the values of the parametric eq as the song progresses to push instruments into the background and let others shine..
in my opinion, it's usually for the best to have a pad in your songs, since it fills up silence in the background, giving your songs fuller sound.
i suppose this isn't my most eloquent review, but hopefully every thing will get across ok.

also, don't take everything here as gospel, since music is about changing things up and still having an element people can recognize and enjoy while learning to like the new stuff. henceforth most popular, catchy songs are repetitive.

well, i've probably forgotten some things i wanted to say, but i'll leave this as it is.
good day, sir

Ef-X responds:

thank you very much sir for the review, as soon as I start working on my next tune I'll use these tips.

cool clubbin'

cool EQing. great one!

Ef-X responds:

Thanks. Glad you liked the song :D

Sweet

This is really cool, and to pretend I know anything about EQ at all, all the layers meshed well together and it sounded nice. You actually spurred me to learn about EQ and start trying it out myself after I saw this so thanks! I will say the dip at 2:50 to what sounds like silence, at least on my shitty laptop speakers, is kind of weird but all your beats are solid. Well done :)

Ef-X responds:

Thanks for the review :D
sweet that i got you into EQing it really helps. Yeah that dip to silence happened because the bass note could no longer hold, I worked on the song from this version to a new one since I released it so I'll fix that too.
