made this song, spend a few hours on it. i made it as a background song so it isnt too abnoxious and it all rather flows into eachother, atleast that was what i tried to do xD. anyone has some ideas of what i can add to it? thanks :)


I'm not sure what DAW you are using, but I've got a couple thoughts:

1) I would EQ out around 4000hz on your main synth lead there. It's a little ear piercing and this is generally the frequency that will do that.

2) Maybe separate your bassline and add more low end frequencies (by EQing and duplicating and/or adding a compressor) and cut out the mid section of the frequencies on your bassline. It kinda sounds like the mid section is over saturated.

3) Transitions are super important. Whenever you are transitioning to a break down or build up, add risers, glitch out the drums, anything to make the transitions a "big deal".

4) Stereo widening techniques can be added here and there throughout but I would widen your snare for sure. Add a 9ms delay from the left and the right channels of it.

Just a couple thoughts. Keep it up =D

thank you for your tips, i will try the things you said. i don't hear the high pitch but i think maybe it's because you got a better headset. but i will lower the frequency arround 4000 hz :).
yaa i also had a hard time seperating the bass, i couldn't really find a good way, mostly i use to change the direction of where the sound is coming from, but thats really hard with a bass line and also makes it sound worse in my opinion.
and about the transitions, thats also kind of an opinion on music taste on how to do it i think.. but i will try what you said ^^.
thanks for sharing your thoughts :D i need more people who do this kind of crictical thinking, really helps :)
