Originally, this was going to be a pony song (once again). There was a zebra in the show, with all kinds of african items in her house. So I tried to emulate the sound of a Marimba with a synth, an instrument which I think sounds really cool. Then I thought of some dark choirs and pads to go along with that, to create the atmosphere of something like a mysterious ritual.
All of that turned into a DnB-Track. That ritual atmosphere is not quite there anymore, but I still like the result.


I like the overall tone of this track. The main synth should stand out more and would probably sound better with some minimal distortion. The reese flows well with the melody and drum beat, but really needs more distortion and other filters on it to make it more powerful. Frequency modulation could also help. Your track progression is decent, however. Further equalization and mastering would make this project a ton better.

I tried to do some modulations with notch-filters and a bunch of others, too. But I decided to just leave the bass sound unshaped and kind of static. It sounded more wooden in my head, lol. Maybe its just me though.
And as for the frequency-modulation: I'm not really sure what you are suggesting exactly, but the sound design of the Bass sound is in fact based on FM. Maybe you want me to play with the volume of the modulating OSC, cause that leads to that classic FM-ish effects. Okay, I'll remember that.

Anyways, thanks for the constructive criticism. I appreciate this more than anything else!

Nice bass sound and good job on the transitions. I'd like to hear more drum sounds involved.

Thanks for the Feedback. I'll keep it in mind for the next DnB-tracks and see how it works
