With Paul on hiatus, I've done the right think and carried on without him. Here is my most recent production.

VSTs Used: Toxic Biohazard, Sytrus, .Sfz Player, NI Massive 1.3.0, 3xOsc


The syncopated synth is boss.

I believe however that the mastering of the drums are a bit too pushy, to crisp. And it's not the genre, it's just that they are a bit tad too accentuated.

Otherwise the syncopated synth riff is very catchy. The effects are nice though, to my ears, everything sounds a bit too crisp. The song could really benefit from a more spacious layering. It's all too compressed, and again, to my ear, it's not the genre.

What this does is it dulls the whole compositions, and it doesn't let you hear the subtleties, and it doesn't let you appreciate the composition, it makes it sound maybe a bit repetitive.

If I try I can hear everything in it and appreciate it whole, but my main complaint is the mastering. A better mastering would make this a classic, proper tune.

Great song with a nice feel, but I kinda wanna see a bit more variety in how you construct your song. It follows a pretty standard complextro/drumstep pattern that I think could do with some more sudden shifts in volume and instrumentation. There's a lot of the same sections building off of each other, and while it works, it doesn't surprise. Some of this has to do with the lack of much melody (a simple synth pattern could add a lot to just create a recognizable monophonic motif), but a lot also has to do with the sound design. You may try gating the verb to the MIDI to get more sudden transitions between instruments and building some more fills and patterns to provide interruption to your loops. An alternate chord progression could also accomplish a lot, as could some sort of sans-sequence breakdown. There's also a bit much high-end on some channels; a gain reduction in the high shelf on your snare and a few of your synths could open up a lot of space for the hats, noise, and distorted effects, as well as allow you to sneak your master limiter's input up a tad. I also thought a few of your synths could use a bit more verb and that the sequenced pattern you had in the background could use some mangling/effecting/note changes at some point to break it up a little. Overall, though, a great composition with a very appealing neurofunk/complextro/drumstep sound!

That was really well put together!
I liked the push and pull that breaks up the sections!
