EDIT: I eq'ed my kicks to put more oomph in the beat(s).
----------
I worked hard on this one. I gotta say this one was tough, but I made sure I did everything correctly. For only my 2nd electronic song with FL Studio, I thought this was alright :D I made sure I eq'ed, mastered, made some automation clips for variation, lil' glitching, an epic break, some drums and bass, & more! I also looked up a lot of tutorials for this one cuz I noticed my other DnB songs did great and I really want this one to do the same. I swear to god, the .flp has like a million things in the patterns and it's just too hectic, for realz. I put all Labor Day weekend into this song pretty much & I really hope you do enjoy the song. Any tips for this newbie would be great :D Pleez rate, review, download, & enjoy!!!

(P.S.-The filesize is big cuz the song is in HQ so if you need a less HQ version for disk space reasons then PM me. Also, if you want to remix this or use this in a flash or somethin', then PM as well)

NOTE: I WILL be editing the tuning of this song so either don't listen, don't download, or don't review cuz if you review about tuning, I'll already know. If you review tips of what I should tune then that's excepted.

:O:O:O

Dang man, this is awesome, you improoved the drums and everything. The only thing I fell that needs to be improoved is the bass, its too cheesy and needs more high freqs


Stavier responds:

Yeah, Imma fix this song up soon, but I'm workin' on other projects in the meanwhile and skool and crap. I'm glad you like the drums better, I've learned more about those for sure :D Yeah, I don't know if I added parametric eq 2 to the bass so I'll do that in the edited version. Thanx for the review!!!


Dream and bass.

What a nice name. It seems like word play of drum and bass.

I like when the bass comes in at 1:43. Also at that part, it seems kinda chaotic. I don't mean musically chaotic as in there been too much stuff in it. I mean it has that chaotic feel to it. It feels the same way at 4:03. Further more, this kind of reminds me of one of my favorite artists. (don't worry, you're up there too!)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I like how the b ass goes at 2:06. "Wow wika Wow wow" That's awesome.

I really don't have any criticism of this song...except this. There is something fishy about the drums. I think it may either need reverb and some bass booster to it...

Hmm, if you want to experiement more with this, try using the automation with panning for that awesome bass!

Keep it up


Stavier responds:

Glad you liked the title. I was like this is pretty dreamy like a Knights game or somethin' and well bass, yeah, so Dream & Bass which can be abbriviated as D&B :D OMG, I'm so glad you like the bass! I was experimenting and I edited one of the LFO envelopes on the love philter and it made that "wow wika wow wow" sound. Yeah, your right. The only thing I did with the drums is add EQ to all of them and edited some of the velocities for the hi-hats so I'll play around with it just a lil' more. Thnax for the review!!!


yeah

good but as the other two said and what i said to you that the scale is off, only thing i was wrong about is people here noticing it.....guess they did.... anyway as i said before its a good song.

Stavier responds:

Yeah, Imma have to edit this cuz my teacher found out i called her a hippie and i told her i'd produce a song for her so I will have to edit this and then repost it. Thanx for the review!!!


Nice

It sounds great, the percussion sounds nice and I also really like the rest of the instrumentation.
But the only problem is, and then I mean the only problem, that technosaur is right. You need to fix the tune, because your melodies always sound good but together they're off. You really need to fix that. And I think that in this case it's just the simple sine notes/bells that make it sound off.
But you really need to listen carefully to tune your music and you should really check out some simple music theory about scales and chord progressions, it's really simple. The instrumentation is fine, it's just the tuning.
Nonetheless, great concept, because I loved the overall structure and the instruments really fit, it's just a shame that the melodies are off.
4/5


Stavier responds:

I realized while I kept listenin' to this that you and technosaur are right. I will have to work on the tuning this week cuz Imma keep the intro, but Imma combine some of the melodies, not jumble it, but just work on it too make it all into one or somethin', if you get what I mean. As for the sine notes, that's actually a flute but I'll edit that too. Thanx for the review!!!


Hm...

No real offense man, but you have to use your ears. The tune on each melody for each instrument you're using is different from one another, and it's making it sound...confused.

I think it has potential to be a great track, it just needs a bunches o-work. Work on it! :>
