A work in progress I've started today. It feels empty and definitely needs more layering effects and such, but I don't know what for now.

Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

I like the mid-east feel this has.

Really interesting marriage of desert-wind style and with a bit of 8-bit beat and heavy guitar. I think they really work well together, with the exception of that sweep you have going. I think you should kill it at 0:20. It's really just lingering unnecessarily after that. Another thing you could try (because I think that sweeper is a preset from FL Studio) is to put that sweeper through Wave Traveller at 0:20, to make a ridiculous transition. I don't know how it'll work out (I've never tried scratching over a sweep) but it could be legen... wait for it...

Wow... all these reviews. Thanks man. Yeah, I've been changing some things a while back. The sweeps are actually all done using Battery 3's reverse reverberation of a hall (if I remember correctly). I've just recently removed the sounds of the percussions generating the sweeps by overlapping it with an inverted non-reverb version of the same pattern. That idea of using wave traveller is... well... very sexy ^_^... I've been attracted to that plugin for a while but never actually had the time to give it a go.

I still need to add pads, some different beats and way more riffs. Oh, yeah, and add some synthetic bass in there to compase [EDIT: compensate] the lack of it (either that or EQ the bass of the 2nd guitar and tweek some things).

Thanks T-rebel. You rock \m/.


Completely amazing. Great drumline. And that guitar in the beginning gave me an eargasm, such a lovely voice. Pro-quality stuff, I can see this in a game. Can I ask what program/plugins you used for that wonderful guitar at 0:20?

SFaPiL2 responds:

Thanks for the compliments ^_^.

The guitars used here were real, not plugins. I used Guitar Rig Mobile to record myself playing and then I used the Guitar Rig essential plugin to give it some reverbs, delays, amps and the like.

A very good start.

I really like it so far. Sounds like something from a suspense movie. But yeah i really like your blend of elements such like the real sounding percussion that gets overrun by electronic sounding percussion around 0:43. And the blend between a tranquil- reverby guitar and the more powerful distorted electric guitar. Very nice contrast in textures and atmospheres. As far as layers- it needs more bass. You could go either way with this one : Bass synth or bass guitar since your using both live sounding and electronic sounding elements. Some other possible layers : background pads/strings, other synths doing arpeggios, maybe some violin or other stringed instrument. Just some suggestions.

But overall you have the start of a killer track. I hope you continue to develop it and would love to hear the finished product. If you have a moment, I would appreciate if you could give my latest track a listen. Thanks!

SFaPiL2 responds:

Thanks for the suggestions, man, I'll keep 'em in mind. Unfortunately I don't have a bass at home, therefore I'll have to stick with a synth (although I suck at making a rich sounding synth bass, for the time being).

I'll definitely keep you posted when the finished product arrives.


P.S. checked your latest track: it sounds fantastic (the structure is as smooth as silk), but ironically I think it has too much bass, imho ^_^.
