Made in FL Studio. 145 BPM
I had a strange urge to remix this piece. The original is still somewhat strong on it's own. That is to say, I was probably better off remixing a "not so good piece" of mine into a MUCH better one. Yet I chose this guy. But man, I think I definitely improved it in so many ways! The melodies, bass, chords, percussion, mixing and mastering are so much stronger in this rendition - that is, in my opinion of course. Here's a list of the changes I made from the original to spice this one:

- I altered the sound of the lead synth, generated using Toxic Biohazard, to make it sound more catchy. I fiddled with the effects on the mixer track to produce a better sound. I was planning on automating a filter to create some different sounds during the song, but after fiddling with the plugin itself, there was no need.

- A few more sounds were added in the beginning and some sounds from the bridge were spiced up for this version. They were all edited using Parametric EQ 2 to cull the better frequencies - hopefully this left some extra dB space for the rest of the sounds.

- The chords were made to have more of a chord progression instead of whatever it was before. The sound was changed to be less muddy.

- The talking bass has a noticeable difference from the start. Instead of it playing around C3, I bumped it up an octave to C4. This makes it sound less muddy and fumbled. it kicks it into some slightly higher frequencies to make some room (not a lot though) for the kick.

- That really deep kick at the beginning also had a drastic change in sound so it didn't take up so much dB space. While it kinda created a neat little sidechain-like effect, it wasn't what I was going for.

- I removed a fair amount of cymbals. Just so they don't get too obnoxious.

- All the percussion (save for the guiro) were updated to yield a better sound thanks to me using Drumpad instead of the prepackaged samples. It's not necessarily the best thing ever but it's MILES better than the prepackaged samples and the boost in quality shows. the kick kicks better, the high hat clinks better and the snare sounds much better. You can also actually hear the guiro in this mix unlike in the original where it gets drowned out by everything.

- Of course, a lot of stuff was taken out to try to improve the quality and lower the chaos in the mix. It might not have helped a whole lot on it's own - but it definitely contributes to a less crazy mix.

- The most changes probably come from the mastering. To make everything heard, I panned some of the sounds. the kick punches through the center of the mix, while the lead comes from one side and the bass from the other. It's never more than a 40% pan to either side. It still sounds great. Since not a lot of sounds were coming through the center, I left the guiro in the center with the chords. The chords were in the center of the mix so everything could easily build on it. The guiro still comes through with help from a limiter to boost the sound when it's in the center of the mix. A lot of frequencies were culled using the built in EQ or Parametric EQ 2 to clean up some of the muddy sounds from the talking bass and other sounds to leave more room for the music.

There's of course WAY more changes I didn't mention but I'm not going to leave a huge laundry list of changes here. I'm mentioning the above points in case anyone would like to know some of the stuff I did during production when they leave a review or even if they're just curious. The mix sounds and feels better compared to the original and it isn't just a huge rehash of it. There's throwbacks to the original but the sounds here are different, and there's been additions to the melodies and percussion to make it sound different as well. If you couldn't tell already, I'm REALLY proud of this mix. It's one of my strongest yet. I'm looking forward to topping this mix with my future releases! I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed remixing it!

... Me too use FL studio!

Yeelp responds:

Hey that's pretty cool! FL Studio I definitely fun to use and while it has its pros and cons, I don't see myself using something else because I'm so accustomed to the FL Studio design. While it's debatable which DAW is the best, always use what works for you!

Cheers,
