Yet another song featuring my friend Sorteberg, and my first shot at dnb. Honestly, I don't really know what I was thinking with the percussion of this song but whatever, hopefully some of you will enjoy this haha.
Made with Garageband.


Good shot at DnB! Five stars.

Not bad, but the harder snare feels overall too distorted/loud to fit the rest of your percussion, and the second is a little weak. Hi-hat also needs some tweaking on those pseudo-rolls. It just sounds off. The writing isn't bad though. Just needs more appropriate samples so as not to sound like machine-gunning the same sample over and over. I can definitely tell it's Garageband. Sounds like hip-hop, techno, and metal met DnB. May just be the double bass. Not a bad song though.

Good, if not somewhat predictable melodies. I like the chords. Could use more low-end sub, but overall a great first attempt. Get some good samples under you, learn to use velocity, and you'll be on your way to producing some fine music. :)

Keep at it!

Pretty decent effort. I'm not sure about the constant velocity on all of the drum parts. The running hi-hat sound is too overbearing. try adding velocity changes in the on and off beats.
The snare sample doesn't suit the overall vibe of the track. something more like a pendulum-ish snare would probably suit far better.
Add some shuffle/swing to the whole track, and the "tick ticky" hihats will sound far less imposing.
The melodies are good, if not a teeny bit generic. That's just my personal taste, so no harsh criticism there.
a touch more sub would be good too.
Otherwise, for a first attempt, that's a noteworthy effort.
Please check my tunes, you'll see whether I'm qualified to to offer production advice, or not ;)
Again, good effort!

Not entirely sure about the begining, and percussion choises in some points , but... quite good, i like it :D

I agree zlarke. Everything here is great and big thumbs up on the melody... but the snare could be different :P
