Cool stuff man. I'm digging the experimental vibes. Those drum rhythms are hand down the best part of the track. I love a song with some thought out rhythms.
I'd have found a way to get those drums to punch through the mix. You familiar with side chaining at all? It lets you control the levels of one instrument with the levels of another and I typically duck the bass and lead synth levels with my kick and snare drums. This alone can really clean a mix up.
Doesn't sound like your layering your drums at all. I'd throw another snare on top of your current snare that's a little thin/ accenting the hi end. Layering takes some serious getting used to especially if your simultaneously trying to learn how to sidechain but it pays off with super crisp sounding drums. I can honestly waste an entire day just making new drums from layering old ones.
You can layer your synths too for really gnarly sounds but at the end of the day it's all just play! Keep playing away and teach me some new tricks while your at it :p
what if i told you that the drum rhythm is a loop
no, not really familiar with side-chaining. it's been months since i've heard that term and i'm still uncertain what it means. i rarely do that tho
i almost never layer too much out of fear that the differing frequencies of the samples will mess the whole mix up
thank yue 4 teh reveeu
Hey man! I thought this track was pretty good. I thought the mixing and quality of the production was spot on. That being said, I personally felt that the overall melody was slightly repetitive, maybe change up the notes in the latter half of the song. Maybe add a dazzling solo in the middle? Then again, having more of a repetitive feel does produce a good, chill mood :)
Hope to hear more tracks in the future!
Now ab-Hey wait, the mixing and production is okay? ...Well, this is the first time my mixing wasn't shit.
Also, yeah I was aiming for more of a chill vibe, hence the repetitiveness.
