I don't know what 3-step is at all- but it sounds a whole lot like skipping a note with the drums and bass each measure, which gives a pretty catchy effect, but I bet I'm wrong as always. You seem to be pretty good at it, whatever it is.
The basslead thing you have in the start sounds like you put some highpass ditty on it- it doesn't sound too interesting. plz fade in some distortion (if that's not added, it it is, you better make it more present) thing there. For kicks. The kick sounds good to me, the snare you don't use in the rolls sounds more like an awkward combination of a snare and clap with the weirdest eq ever seen by any human eyes. The pretty thick snare you use in the rolls and buildups aren't bad at all, actually I love them... without the snare rolls the drums altogether would sound pretty much like copy-and-paste-a-bar-all-over patterns
I like the lead, it sounds funny. It sounds like it jumped out of the rave song in the night club and went walking in the mountains screaming "FREEDOM, BITCHES" to the city below it... at least that's what I imagine the lead is doing in this song- Though the melody hardly changes up- you have two melodies with hardly any variations- sure it's not intended to progress (that's obvious) but it's really the most repetitive two minutes I've heard in a while
Pretty good stuff in here if it wasn't for the complete and utter lack of diversity
3-step means the song uses triplets. Instead of eighth/sixteenth notes, two/four of which fit in one beat, triplets are notes small enough so three of them fit in the same beat. I did make use of rhythms that accomodate six notes in one beat - for example, the snare roll.
Huh, I'm pretty sure that was a Lowpass Filter. But yeah, I was aiming for something to make the intro a bit more interesting. And, distortion? I never considered that, I was going for a cleaner, happier song.
If you're wondering why the general EQ was weird, it was because I did the mastering on a pretty weird pair of headphones, which had some weird treble frequencies and quite weak bass - funny thing was, on the box they were going on and on about the "deep, rich bass" they had. XD I might re-master it sometime, though unless it's repeatedly asked for I probably won't.
I liked the lead too, and, oddly enough, I've had similar thoughts about it come from other people as well. :P I tried to change up the melodies a little bit but it was proving to be more work than it should have been, and, since I was mainly trying to give myself a break and have fun with this song instead of pushing myself like I have been lately, I put it aside and didn't really come back to it at all. :P
Well, SBB, glad you liked the parts you did and thanks for criticising me on the parts you didn't! Thanks for the review. :)
ya karco you upload a song about time. i like your melody what vst you use . even though your song was kinda repetitive it was very catchy great job on this song
Heh, I'll definitely agree - it's been a while since I've submitted. Now that school's in, it's going to be harder to submit at all as well. :\ Oh well...
The melody... I actually came up with most of it one night a month or two ago at around 11 PM. o_O I used Nexus, one of my favorite synths these days. :)
Thanks for stopping by to review, Carbo! Glad you liked it. :)
Very nicely done! the beats are awsome, and the action really does make you fell DANCING! good job
Those beats would be from reFX Nexus's Dance Drums expansion, which looks to be a tool that will hopefully serve me well for months, if not years to come. >:) And yes, it was meant to make you feel like dancing. ;) Glad you enjoyed the song, and thanks for stopping by to review. :D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
