I really suck at mastering, i really need support etc.. i'm on ableton.

Share your opinion about my shit and enjoy. c:

( Actually it's not Dubstep, it's a bit more fast, but genre on newgrounds are limited )


Well, I have to admit I had my doubts because I vaguely remember you getting caught self-advertising in the audio forum. But none of that matters right now.

I'm going to go ahead and say you might really be onto something here. While Vortek said that the tempo of the song is awkward, I think it's the exact opposite. It's dubstep, but because of the tonality and entirely different tempo choice it could be an entire branch of its own. It's almost cartoony, though that may be due to the choice of vocal samples, and I really liked the use of tom fills and the set of drums you picked in general. I really think if you make more music in this particular style you could have a genre all your own.

Unless this is influenced by a subgenre that already exists, of course.

Still, it does need work. Some aspects of the mixing seem unnatural - the stereo imaging is strange due to the fact that I'm somehow able to discern mono channels from stereo ones in this case where everything normally blends in a professional mix despite the existence of both stereo and mono elements. I just think the beginning needs an additional stereo channel in the mid or high frequency ranges. There are also some volume balance issues - the sub bass is way too loud whenever the wobble bass isn't there to compensate for it.

There's also a general lack of sounds in the drop riff. You only have one wobble - I would recommend breaking the melody up for more of a fidget house sound, as the simplicity of it tends to be a bit of a bore otherwise.

I liked it.

4/5 and 5/5.

Well, imo it sounds a little aqwkward at 107bpm or w/e you have it set to, quite a lot slower then the default 140 for dubstep or even the 120s that some post dubstep guys are experementing with. Yet the melodies are quite fast.

Drums - Main thing I will say here, is you have the same drum pattern throughout the whole song. Its a boring kick on 1 and 3 snare on 2 and 4. So a little varation in the drums is needed. Just reread your description and you say it sfaster then dubstep, so im not really sure what its meant to be, but il stick with 107bpm atm, seeing 217 seems a little to fast to actually do anything. I know you said its not classified as dubstep, but you could get some half time in there, (imagine dubstep as 70bpm instead of 140, or 52bpm in this case, might be a little too slow for this, but you could see how it turns out) At the least you can defenately play with the positioning of kicks a bit more and some moar hihats.

There seems to be a massive gap in frequencies between the sub bass and the higher up synth. Try filling these in a bit, lowcutting everything and highcutting the sub bass so you dont get any overlaps.

Im not really sure what effects and stuff you are using, but to me, everything sounds very 'in your face', you said your mastering wasnt very good, but the mixdown is probably the first thing to work on.

Yeh, sounds good, needs some work imo though :)

Also, what you said about genres being limited, using the tags to specify a more specific genre or subgenre, makes it easier for everyone to see where you want to head with the track. (just an idea)

Thanks, an helpful advice.

( i've already lowcutted everything and highcutted the sub bass :c )

Not bad.
