Author Comments

This is the WIP of my second hardstyle track. I made everything but the bassline and the kick in the intro. And yess, I did make the vocal sample, its not something I'm proud of :D I has a shitty mic. I'm pretti sure its finished, I'll probs make an outro :D

Well I need to improve so tell me what you think =P


The vocals if anyone wanted 'em:

Open your eyes
And we will show something
Something that's lain dormant for a decade
Something that will change you
Something that will change everything
Because for too long have we endured their music
Their beats
Their lifestyle
So join us now

Goodgoodgood :D

It was cool, really raw sound, I like that :D
As said below, the kick could use some work. If you want to search for a good way to EQ and compress a kick, I recommend watching a tutorial on youtube.
I learned eq'ing etc. by watching trancecrafters tutorial. It's actually for trance, but the concept about EQ and compression is the same, could be useful :D
The vocals were really cool, I liked them a lot.
I wasn't sure about it, and I thought that hardstyle was always written in fast 3/4 or 4/4 triplets, but that's not always that way, so I like how it differs from the usual :D
5/5 for you, sir. Good job, keep it up!

FrameWork responds:

Hardstyle melodies can be written in time signature, check out DBSTF - Sound of the Thunder. As long as it's a dark or Hard Trance melody then your fine. Thanks for the advice, I'll check it out. I need to learn more of the technical side of things (mastering :S) XD and thanks for the good review. XD


Good, but here's some pointers.

I liked the melody and bass a lot. I think the kicks at the beginning need to be remastered, and the kicks throughout the song need to be louder (I could barely hear them). Anyway, you have a great base for an awesome song! Keep it up!

FrameWork responds:

Thanks for the review, to be honest, I didn't make the begining kick, as I'm stil experimenting trying to get that right sound. But, I'm pretty sure it's meant to be patterned with a bassline, not solo. :D I'm gunna make my own next time XD

im not a big fan of hardstyle...

but this is pretty cool! i might suggest that the kick in the beginning be mastered better. other then that, nice! :)

5|5 9|10 {5.00 / 5.00 (unchanged)} nice work!


FrameWork responds:

I'll have look! Probs do an edit and thanks for the good review :D

Keep It Hard
