[update] - ! I MAKE MUSIC FOR VIDEO-GAMES ! - If you want to use this for a film or video then please ask me and I will surely say yes. The reason I started uploading songs to Newgrounds was to collaborate, and I know you game-makers are out there, so let me know if you want to, or just use this or any of my songs! Thanks! tch?v=orGtdpFvZNw - Video for this tune.

This is by far the longest time I've ever spent making one song. I am very happy with finally having completed it and I hope you enjoy it. More bigger tunes to come.

Funky stuff, I like it! A nice use of sound effects, the build up around 1:40 was nice and the way you dropped out the drums etc. just before the drop was very nicely done. The melody / bassline is actually quite addictive aswell. Simple but effective :)

Areas for improvement:
- If you're on fruity, load up Toxic Biohazard, change the sine wave into noise wave 4. Where you see the 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 in the middle of the program, turn the first zero up to 100. Careful to not play while you do this as it's going to sound UGLY. It should be like a windy screech sound. Now send this through to a mixer track and put a low pass filter on it. Fruity filter will do the trick. Set it to low pass and set the frequency to a lowish figure. Next, add a gross beat and click the side chain in the volume section. Right click on all 4 of the volume lines to make them straight rather than curved so as to achieve a clearer sound. Next, draw on a note on your piano roll on Toxic Biohazard which is 4 or 8 bars long. Put this onto your playlist and then go back to your Mixer fx and open the Filter again. Right click on the Freq and click Create Automation Clip. Now go back to your playlist and where it says Track 1, Track 2 there should be an Automation Clip created which looks like a long, straight line. On this line, right click to draw on the dots. Draw a dot on where your Toxic Biohazard instrument is introduced on the playlist and put the dot quite low down. Then, 4 or 8 bars later draw on another dot much higher up. Now play the song and listen to the effect you've just created :) Add a reverb aswell, before or after the filter and gross beat and notice the sound difference.
- Adding some Reverb to your snares could give them that extra punchiness. Careful as Reverb can occupy a lot of space and make the track messy but when used well can enhance the awesomeness!
- You could add more snares and hi hats and pan them left and right. Only pan slightly but notice the difference on the prescence of the piece. Also, make sure you have a parameteric EQ 2 on every instruments / fx and if its a hi hat or snare then drop the lower frequencies to free up space for your bass and vice verse for the bass / kick. I usually only drop a slight bit of mid for kicks as the high end keeps it puncy. The mixdown of this track was pretty good so I'm not sure if you need to do this but its wroth baring in mind :) I always drop the very lowest frequency down for my kick and have that space occupied by the bass which gives it more breathing space and cleaner sound output.

Keep up the good work :)

Woah thanks man! really appreciate all the help, sadly newgrounds doesn't message when you get comments on your tracks so this went unseen for ages. Cheers though, this will be a real help and I'm glad you liked the track :) good to see another FL user out there too. I've lost the files annoyingly for the original FL version of this track, so no improvements can be made. But I will take into account all you've said and I gotta tell ya something big and Drum and Bassy is in the works so I will put into practice what you've told me there! Thanks!
