I worked a good amount of time on this. I hope you enjoy it. I feel like the drop isn't powerful enough, but I wasn't going for a powerful drop I was going for a somewhat smooth transition so it is hard to tell almost. Have fun getting ear raped xD


Ug. I'm running out of polite ways to say I hate most of your songs lol

Your not supposed to review on if you like it or not, but rather the quality of the song.

I have to agree with Maverick and Del on this one. The sounds do sound generic for default plugins and they don't really fit the genre. Presets good to use when you're learning how to make music. If you try to cram sound design in too, it'll make a pretty good song into an okay one. Find a nice preset pack and then find the sounds you think would fit. Listen to lots of similar music to what you're making. Pick sounds like that. Supersaws and plucks are very common in house, so if you're going to make electronic, those are essential to know how to make and tweak to your liking. Still, presets can still have good saws and plucks and much more that you can use while making music. It wouldn't be a bad idea to invest in a plugin like Sylenth. You'll be able to make much more electronic sounding sounds with it and it will bring your music up to a whole new level.

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

Isn't sylenth like $500? Pretty expensive

Dude this is actually pretty good! I love your melodies, but the only problem is, just like maverickmode said, is that u try to make your own sounds, which I don't think you should do, in my opinion, I think that would make your tracks 5x better than they already are. :D Keep up the good work! (And stop saying that you suck because you don't!!!)

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

You don't think I should make my own sounds?! what

Hmmm... Kind of reminds me of something I would have made a few years ago. It's good, nothing bad really jumps out at me, and I really like your melodic ideas and the chord progression you chose here.

Here's the thing: You have to kind of start looking for your own individual sound. I'm not really sure how to put this into words, it's a really fine line to walk. This song, to me, just gives me the vibe of a generic FL studio song. I don't mean to sound harsh, and don't let this get you down or anything. The composition of the song I love, it's just the instruments and samples you used seem kind of standard for this type of EDM, like what you would get with a basic pre-made setup to produce this kind of music.
The thing is, you're at a real transition stage here. You have the skills and the unique voice down. So really all I can tell you is to keep experimenting, keep going outside your box and finding sounds you wouldn't have thought to use before, and don't ever just be satisfied with what you've done. You don't have to hate your own work, that's not what I'm saying, just always be looking for a new sound, a new angle, a new approach. I recommend buying or downloading some drum sample packs so that you can have a wide variety of sounds you can use, and utilize tools like EQ, reverb, and delay to tweak these samples (and/or the ones your already have) until they're perfect for the project you're working on. Also, experiment with the settings of the synthesizers you have and consider checking out some new ones, there are plenty of free and cheap VST synths you can find online that really give you a bang for your buck.
All in all, I see a lot of potential here. Solid work.

DJ-Zyzyx responds:

Wow... Thank you! I used Logic Pro X btw. I honestly don't even feel like this track reaches normal standards because it really isn't that great, it does sound really typical and is somewhat repetitive. I usually just use logic's drum samples since there are hundreds of them for each genre, and regarding synths and plug-ins I never download those because they seemed expensive. There are a lot of VST's in logic already that I usually modify but it isn't really that long until I find a good typical house pluck or lead. Thank you, and I'll try to get a more unique sounding track later on. Right now my main focus is to get a *decent* track. This is probably my best track in terms of decency and catchiness. :D
