More emotional, definitely not as hard as others. Not meant all that much for head bobbing, more for just plain listening.


You can tell you really put a lot of time into this, a lot of effort into the mixing, but at the same time you can kinda tell you're pretty new to sound design... Without being harsh, you need to get some new drum samples. Mainly a tighter kick (with a clearer mid end) and snare. Also the hihat you're using sounds like FL default stuff. Also you really need to sidechain the bass to it. The melody clashes p. badly with the bass, and could maybe do with some more reverb? The synths sound pretty preset-y too, although the choirs were pretty cool. What software set up do you have?

Idk, my biggest quibble with this is that it sounds really uninspired and robotic. Dubstep should have soul and groove, it should feel dark and fluid. Right now though, it doesn't really sound like you have much vibe and soul or a high production value. Still, all the best finding your way in the world of sound design.

Yes, I am new to producing. And I actually would like to argue a few points on this review. I first off I use audiotool, I cannot afford expensive software and sample packs. This actually is not meant to be heavy and is meant for background music. It has a chord progression that I had to make work, the vocals don't fit in as well because they were a sample on a different key and I tried my best to make it work. And there is actually a story behind this, I was going through a bad time, so I actually made it sound bland and robotic, to replicate the emotions I was going through at the time. It was choppy to represent rage, robotic to represent lack of emotions, uninspired because all imagination had been shut off in my brain. This is a good review though, I wanted to get this out to the public and see if anyone even paid attention to small details like this. Thank you, I wanted to let the public know there was a story and reason to the quality.
