-- Forsaken 2 : Grovtex --
-- Liquid Drum N Bass --
-- 184 BPM --


A remake on one of my first songs, 'Battle of Grovtex'.

I deleted the flp. file for some unknown reason, thus I had to re-compose it. By ear.

I used NI's FM8 for the first time and it literally destroyed my laptop's RAM, thus I had to export the project before I could listen to it & plan edits. I can even smell smoke from my laptop during production...

This is, by far, the heaviest project I've ever run on my laptop.

'Grovtex' is a fantasy province from a novel I'm working on.

the main synth sounds great, however you may want to cut some of its lower frequencies so the drums are a little easier to hear.
the strings were fantastic, i would suggest just not boosting the synths in any way that would compromise the drums.

Thanks for the review.

I should have realized the drums aren't that loud.

This sounds cool! Makes me imagine being in an epic boss battle or in a big race. It's fast pasted, there's some good variety, you changed it up a little before it would get too repetitive, which I like.

There's also some good suspense, with the tension build ups and releases. As I said earlier, it would be good for a boss fight or big race.

If I had to say something about improving...hmm, I would maybe go with making some better transitions. The sudden stops kind of take away from the track and it sounds like a new song is coming in after that second of silence, instead of feeling like a flowing track.

But good job nonetheless, this is still a nice track. I just feel like it would be better if it all flowed nicely together. Keep it up!

KrisKrosNL responds:

Thanks for the review. Transitions have been difficult for me to complete correctly.

This feels very Liquid-y!
I hope that Fantasy Province goes well!
The dnb is great, btw.
