T-Logic - Ormolu

Share Download this song

Author Comments

This project was made in about 10 days in late April/early May 2017, in Logic Pro X. It's 3.5 minutes of bass-y electronica with an atmospheric flair in the middle.

Excuse my long hiatus, guys! I recently wrapped up a very rough semester, and I'm excited to be making music again. The goal is to put out a track every week in May. I know I'll be keeping that promise for week one, at least. :/ Hope you enjoy "Ormolu" - I'm particularly proud of the sound design on this one. ;)

reminds of fashion shoot music. 90's could use some mixing the interlude was nice. I liked the second half more. thanks for sharing. the synth adds some nice emotion at the end.

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks for the review! Hahaha "fashion shoot music." XD Yeah, not my cleanest mix, although I don't know exactly what you mean by "90's could use some mixing..."

The interlude is probably my personal favorite part too. :3 Thanks again!

this isn't drum n bass

TaintedLogic responds:

Fair enough.

Very surprising uniqueness for a drum and bass! Yeah, I have to agree with you and another reviewer on this track not being a hard-hitter. Not that it's a bad thing, not at all! Just different in a way that was a good surprise. The percussion in this is awesome, and all the pads and soft synths to go with the types of bass flows great.

You went slightly off key towards the middle, but it doesn't bother me that much. I liked this enough to put it in my list of favorites. Great DnB! There's definitely some wow to it. =D

TaintedLogic responds:

Thank you so much! I worked really hard on that percussion. XD My music does get off key sometimes, but I'm gradually learning to exercise more control over it, haha. I'm honored that I made your list of favorites. Thanks again!

i really like the sound design and the mixing is also pretty good! the very large problem here is that there are a lot of clashing notes that don't really go together so well. like there is a good deal of dissonance, you should work on that. the rest is good though.

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks so much for the review, Johnfn! Would you mind pointing out which dissonance(s) you're referring to, please?

You're excused :)

In my opinion, this is the catchiest song you've ever composed. The main melody is especially catchy, but the rhythmic elements don't lag far behind. In the beginning, the simple yet effective bass line supplements the melody quite well. Later, you created a very interesting chord progression behind the melody that provided some welcomed variety and dissonance. Your selection of instruments is delightful. Thanks to the variety of sounds, the song evokes several vibes, from electronic-mystery to a celtic sound. The sound design is pretty good, and I adore the pluck lead! The hi hats aren't very pleasing, but they're not annoying either. Maybe you could have automated them more in some way? This is a very enjoyable track overall! I played it on loop for a while.

TaintedLogic responds:

Wow! Thanks so much for all the positive feedback, BO! I have been trying to make my melodies both simpler and catchier, so I'm glad it paid off. ^^ I was hoping the pluck lead wouldn't sound too minimal, so I'm really glad you commented on it. Admittedly, the hi hats aren't doing much here besides adding texture. I'll try to think about that more going forward. Thanks again for the review. :D
