even though its based on Overdrive by Clokx, i still enjoyed it. hope to hear more from you!
lol, and it was still the first time I heard that song when you sent it to me!
Must be some subconscious wave-ma-jigger.
Dont use that Reverbed kick thing. I really didn't like it. And dont use presets, they sound horrible for this song. This would sound cool when you finish it, but maybe continue your old style. I dun like this style so much... well.. the song i mean... lol. And some stuff was distorted a little. Anyways, its still catchy. Check out my stuff!
That reverbed kick is still my hero.
It doth stayeth.
Yeah, this song is right now going through an overhaul, since I'm switching over from mainly Sytrus to a combination of Sytrus, z3ta+ and whatever Cakewalk's newest one is called. Can't remember.
But yes, this one will get an overhaul, and I promise it'll sound better.
Nice work, some suggestions..
I think this piece is great, and has room for much potential development. I can hear the the "distant" sound effect and the basic kick sound from FL. The compression you have put on the distant sound is an excellent use of compression, but the reverb needs to be gated to cut out in some parts from muddening the parts following it too much. The hi-hat is also noticeable, that it is from the basic FL library. I recommend that you should get a new sample library, either buying one or getting a free download from some website. I think the bass needs to be changed to a heavyier thick "wubbing" sound.
Don't take the criticism too harshly now, the wasp and TB303 sounds you have are great, the EQ and compression just need to be pushed up one more level, keep up the great work!
Kay. That's not quite the basic kick from FL, I got a different sample :p
'Sa good idea to gate the sounds to keep them from bleeding over, I'll keep that in mind. Hihat... yeah... any suggestions?
Bass wubbing, sure, why not, I'll try that out.
Wasp- didn't use wasp :D
and TB303- also not used. :D
Most of those sounds I created in Sytrus , a 3xOsc, and Crystal.
Yeah, I needs my old sample library back- that much has become painufully apparent. I wants me reason back.
Nice again! and improved too!
Hey some drastic changes here, I had to listen to the other one again so i could tell what to listen out for, and you've done a fair bit to this!
Ok the melodies seem in sync now I'm sure, nothing stands out in an untoward manner there! I like what you've done with that kick! did you use reverb on that? and some kind of delay or echo? cos I'm wanting to incorporate that kind of sound in an experimental piece I have ideas of
Overall the leads in this have a sharper, clearer sound to them, which sounds better. They sounded good before, but you've somehow improved them, as well as having that fade in with them at the start, which adds to the piece!
yeah I like this! you're getting a 5 for sure!
Keep banging 'em out!
That kick is simply a regular kick, reverbed like hell, and then stacked five deep to get that explodey sound.
Yeah, the piano was throwing off the sync of the melody, I figured that out after about three hours of "WHAT THE FUCK KEEPS FUCKING THIS UP?!" and then replaced the piano with a synthed organ.
The leads sound sharper and clearer because I spent some time on EQ'ing this, because I didn't just bang it out in two hours like I did with the demo, also, there's a hell of a lot of automation in this song, which helped improve off of the demo immensely.
Anyways, since this is v0.4, I still don't consider it done. But it's a damn sight better than the 14 seconds I left ya with earlier XD
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
