I feel dumb admitting I don't remember ever checking out any of your work. Was really digging this. Takes me back to those old school cornandbeans days when Ian was super into Dragon Force. Some of the mixing elements in this are peaking the track. The distortion from the clipping is noticeable but all the elements aside from that is flipping sex sauce. Awesome melodies, slick breaks, over all good choice of instruments. Just work on fine tuning that mix! I especially loved that down tempo break down at the end.
Just plugged in headphones to see if I can't get to the root of that clipping. Bass sounds like it's in the middle where it should be. Maybe I'd have tried panning everything else a little harder? Not sure if you know this but panning an instrument creates the illusion that it's louder than it really is which allows you to turn the volume down on it and saves room in your mix.
If your not familiar with side chaining I'd make that priority homework. You can really clean up the mix by letting your drums slice through different instruments. I think Fruity Loops has a different name for it but side chaining will let you duck the amplification on one instrument every time that bass kick or snare hits. In drum and bass the drums are the most important part of the mix. So side chain it past the bass, pads, and a little on the leads. Again, not sure how it works in Fruity Loops but when you figure out how to side chain in Reason you basically start side chaining EVERYTHING.
I'm not sure what else to say but I'm sure that was plenty. Take it easy Nachos!!
Completely overlooked sidechaining haha. I usually dont sidechain dnb tracks. I usually do it too hard lol. Still havent figured out how panning helps my mix though. Could you elaborate or link me to some decent tuts? Thanks for the review! It feels good to get some solid pointers. Cheers Quarl!
I like it a lot, but it's a bit repetitive. Btw, nice job on this.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
