Melodic tune in intro is a little irritating.
But Anyways, I like the build ups, ALOT. The sound design is pretty good too.
I like the melodic first drop, really catchy.
Third drop is my favourite, calm into a badass frenzy of... Serum... and Massive, I guess...
Outro was abit brief and could be longer and have more sounds.
But hey, good work man! ;)
Lol it could not have more sounds because Serum ate all the memory. Thanks for the review though!
I like the mysterious mood at the beginning. It has a great sense of climax starting at around :30. The gritty synths and ominous tone add a lot to the piece. The dissonant chords at 1:19 are awesome. The drop at 1:30 is great. Perhaps you could’ve brought the snare out a bit more there just to add that much more punch. The structure of this piece is a little bizarre. It has a lot of high-intensity content and not much contrast and relief. I don’t think you ever really had a proper breakdown or bridge to separate the first drop with the one at 3:00. That said, the mood and atmosphere really sell this piece. I wasn’t a huge fan of that piano sample at 3:27, and I think some of your other instruments could use a high-pass to limit distortion in the bass range, especially during the drops. Also, the ending felt a bit rushed. It might not even make a bad loop, even if 4-minute-long dubstep loops are a bit unconventional. It could also use some stronger melodic content. Overall, this is solid work. Nice job with the builds, transitions, and intensity. Keep at it, man. ;)
Thank you so much for the review!
I have gained a lot of mixing tips and insight that I cannot wait to try out, as I just got time to work on some of my projects (especially high passing). You caught the slightly rushed part (good for you dude). This track was made with a lot of pressure of final school assignments and everything in this track was only instinct. I did not really have time to think (saved that for the school work and it paid off). I don't know what makes this seem more like a loop; however, I completely understand the part about creating stronger melodic content. XD yeah I love the dissonant chords at 1:19 too :D
This could have used a breakdown, and I will keep that in mind in the future.
Thanks once again, and I would appreciate any other thoughts or responses that come to your mind based on this response through Private Message if possible.
Great judging by the way; this was very effective and the rubric idea is golden and useful.
Hey, Chael! Saw this for your NGAUC audition, so I thought I'd drop by and leave some words.
+ Crazy bass design
+ Shocking volume!
+ Fantastic structure and build quality
- Some harmonies don't mesh well with each other, dissonantly or consonantly.
- The melodic lines sound a bit amateurish, mostly due to emphasis of the tonic.
- I feel like this piece could have used a louder kick drum.
Thanks for your response, I am glad to hear this and I agree with the majority of what you said. :)
I am glad you enjoyed it.
Loving the basses and the orchestral parts!
Keep up the awesome work :D
Not gonna lie, I love this song. I saw it first on your SoundCloud. I'm new to making dubstep, cause I just got NI Massive a few months ago. (Although I have been doing electro and other weird genres for some time now). I know that my songs are not quite as professional sounding as this or other songs. I noticed that you have seen a few of my dubstep attempts, and I was wondering if you could give me tips on how to make something epic like this. (Also, I'd love to collab with you sometime).
Okay, I will look into some of your dubstep; I believe I already did at some point but I'll check again!!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
