This is the project that I've been working on for a few weeks now. I'm still trying to decide if it's good or not, but if nothing else it puts off an interesting vibe. I've always liked doing vocal sampling, because I can use my own voice and not have to worry about factors like being consistent with the pitch, having good tone, pronouncing vowels correctly etc. etc. You basically just take the best little snippet of what you sung and then use that to create a melody.
I used three different grooves in this song, one common in dubstep, one common in drum and bass, and one common in house/trance.
Made using:
ACID Pro 7 (DAW)
T-Force Alpha Plus (Bass pad synth)
Tone2 Firebird (Bass synth)
ARIA For Acid Pro (Harpsichord)
Drum samples from the ACID Pro sample library
All vocal samples taken from my song Night Sky


the resampled vocal parts are totally my aesthetic rn, just need to smother them in reverb right before you hit the drop then cut it right out when the beat comes in :v
actually i think this could generally use a little more reverb/delay, it definitely feels a little too dry to me (although i've been overusing reverb lately :v). i like the panning on the harpsi, would be good to give the bongos the same treatment! try combining a really short reverb with the one you're currently using for some of the drum sounds (mainly the bongos and clap - maybe the hat as well?) just to give them a bit more space and help them feel a little less dry and tinny.

i feel like the slow, flowy downtempo trap part works better than the 4 to the floor section towards the end - i think it's just that 808 hihat, it's not strong enough to carry the offbeat on a strong dancey rhythm imo. also maybe sidechain the bass synth volume to the kick, or at least the low band of the EQ, cause it tends to intermodulate with the kick tone in a bad way when they play at the same time.

i like that your melodies aren't overly elaborate, but the fast harpsi riff is a little overbearing - just needs to come down in volume really. overall this is a pretty good track, keep it up
