The sound just waves in my heaphones! It's unbelievably silky and smooth bass progression mix! MUDAFUCKIN YUM! Just maybe too simple , more different sounds would fit in!

DavidRx responds:

;) sure ill take that note 2 my next track

Way too muffled.

It sounds great, but you're filtering way too much of what you have. Try to pump out those trebles, maybe a bit of the mids, and keep your lows as you have them now. I guarantee that it will sound tons better.

Also... try to make it sound a bit fuller. There needs to be something else there. Seems lacking.

DavidRx responds:

well i have been filtering this way for a long time :P

it actually sounds good when done right...
like this track for instance
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/353759

it only has lows and a bit of treble
but anyways

ill try it out and listen 2 how it sounds

and by the way :P this is a WIP
its lacking but the finished project wont be :)

Sounds nice

The build-up is great, the kick kinda lacks the power.
It just dosen't "feel" right with the song even with sub-woofers.
The buildup however can be shortened a bit, just find it too long.
What you need-
Woosh sound effect for the buildup.
Re-verb kicks (Best transition kicks)
Reverse Cymbals
Snares/ Hi-hats.
5/5 - 9/10.

Sounds great dude

The bass and synth intro sounds good actually. Kind of makes me think of several fast paced action levels together that you must survive kind of like the Portal games.

The bass is the literal life of this tune. Without it, it would probably sound a bit dreary and lifeless. The synth is superb yet simple at the same time. The synth kind of made me bob halfway through and I didn't realize it until it looked like my keyboard was moving then I noticed I was just grooving to the song actually which is pretty cool. Really nice and simple drum beat you got going there as well.

Overall, an excellent piece but could be cooler if the drum had triplet high hat notes. Good work.

DavidRx responds:

haha the grooving keyboard made my day XD thx for that one

yea i love bass =D its my favorite element in a song :D
i train on making the bass the most enjoyable element on my songs :3

well the drums is kinda hard for me xD i ussualy use the OOOOOLD 4 kick

and ussualy dont put high hats and snares xP maybe claps...but im not experienced with thoes...but ill take the advice :D and try it out

thx for the awesome review :D
