Time to get back into making music. It's been a long time!

This is a track I made a long time ago, but I have spent time working on giving the song a little more depth and variety.

To be totally honest, I can barely stand the clap that repeats throughout most of the beat. Everything else sounds nice, but I had trouble taking it all in due to how loud and abrupt the clap is. The softer melodies are so overpowered that it's difficult to hear how they change; I had to listen to the entire piece a second time to start really picking up on the variety. I would try to integrate the clap with all the other instruments by substantially reducing its volume and letting it fade out instead of abruptly cutting it off. It also might be a good idea to remove the clap entirely from some parts of the music to make the whole piece more varied.

If you create a revised version of this beat, I'd be interested in hearing it!

Interesting thoughts, I'll look into it Jack. The percussion is a little crunkier than I would normally subject my own work to. I did deliberate for a while whether the clap was too harsh, too snappy and I can see where you would think along those lines.

There is definitely a revised version in the pipeline, and I'll have a mess around with the clap/snare, to try and make it blend into the song more without being too invasive on the song as a whole.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The progression is great and the sound choice is excellent, I think maybe the clap/snare could maybe have a slight touch of reverb on it, though, it's a little jarring amix the more atmospheric sounds of the rest of the beat.

This might be nitpicking, I don't know, but that bassy note that plays throughout seems to be panned way too far to the left. It was really irking me.

Otherwise, this is pretty good.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll work some more on the song, and see if I can implement some of the changes you suggested. The left panning thing, that must be when I'm playing around with the Stereo Seperation effect. I'll sort that out.

After I finished making the track, I experimented a little bit more afterwards and spent some time playing with the Harmor plugin, I much preferred the vast array of sounds you can produce with the Harmor bass plugin, it's much better than Boobass, which is nothing in comparison. The problem with using Harmor, is that it's a demo version, so when you save the song, it takes the Harmor elements out, which means I have to purchase the plugin to get those aspects back into my song.

But I plan to do so.
