Something for the newbie, M. I did it for the SKWAWD yo.

DISCLAIMER; It's rough. The bass ain't where I want it, but I liked it so much, I figured I'd put it on here for you guys.

Pretty cool. I can listen to the scratches all day. Woulda been cool to throw in a silly little guitar or some kinda instrument to transcribe the scratches during the latter half. Still a very relaxed and pretty song, not as many variations with verses as I would like, but it is good as is.

I dig this track a lot. The chimes throughout is probably my favorite part of it -- the volume on it is perfect, and it represents the high frequency range really well.

The weird vinyl sounding pitch shift thing is really cool (something I might want to try out at some point, thanks for giving me the idea). It sounded weird at first but I got used to it as the track went on.

The reverse drums part sounded really cool, but the chillout part after sounded like it had some heavy high pass thing on there that got kinda distracting. And at one point, around 6:38, the hi pass switched on and off real quick. That sounded kinda gross. I don't know what you were trying to do there, but it was really sudden and distracting.

I really liked the drums. The drum pattern was cool, the way the drums sounded was great. All in all I really dug this track. I understand you're still working on it, so there's still some stuff you can tweak, but it's coming together really well.

I didn't notice any problems/anything weird with the bass. It sounded pretty good.

That switch you heard with the hi pass was me being lazy with the automation and not wanting to set a new clip for the end portion of the song, which is twice as long as the intro. That was it fading the output from the EQ all the way down and all the way back up in one beat. -____-

Thanks...I almost forgot that....heh..lol

I have to say this one is pretty chilled. Nice and clear sound here for sure. I get that this is a hip hop beat but without nobody singing here it sounds a bit empty after a while, because it´s quite long. But it still would be a nice background track for something. I can´t point my finger on it but something sounded strange in the stuttering part you had at the beginning and at some points in the track. It sounded a bit dull and was mixed much worse than the rest of the track. I really like the groovy bass and the bells bring some nice mood into the track. The scratching effects you used sound a bit too digital for me. I hope this helps a bit ;)

Rilo15 responds:

It helps alot. It turns out it's not a good idea to put a 7 band EQ on automation to fade a track out. I tried to allow the bass to come through EQ without letting anything else pass but it might actually be messing with the chop effect on the whole song. That strange sound you heard was probably the cut off for either the bass or those flang'd chords in the background because of gross beat and that EQ not working together.. I wanted to make it simple because of the rhyme scheme of the person I made this for. Tbh the actual song wont be nowhere near as long. I really only meant to do a minute and a half excerpt but FL said otherwise. :/

It's still a long ways off from being finished. Thanks for the feedback it's greatly appreciated. Always good to have an extra set of ears. :)
