I can dig this, sounds very Ronald Jenkees-esque. If you don't know who that is I suggest looking him up.
I certainly know who he is!
Man that lead. I really enjoyed this one, good job. The kicks do need to go up and a bit more punch if possible. I'd take that open hat down in level a bit too, other than that, you have a masterpiece.
I think you're right about the hats - I messed with them a lot, though. Any quieter and the mix felt like it lacked treble :/
I might actually juice the kick up and update the file if I get around to it, though.
Thanks for the feedback! :P
Melody was pretty good. Could have had more variation with higher end. I'd suggest adding a few more sounds with a different melody to extend the song a bit more. Was also not a fan of the snare. Other than that, it was some good work.
Thanks ! nice review it will help a lot ! =)
This is pretty fucking good man. Think maybe a little more mixing to add depth, but other than that, this kicks ass. You gained yourself a new fan.
wow Thanks!! really! (:
Go study dubstep. get better equipment/programs and samples and PRACTICE.
I wasn't sure when I made this if it classified as dubstep, house, progressive house, or something else. It's all experimental as I am practicing, but you're right in that dubstep seems more 'random'.
As far as getting better software/samples, I've got decent software (Ableton/NI), save for drums (in this song). I've since picked up a decent drum vst (in my other song), but learning to wheel them better.
I'll be the first to admit I'm not the best at mixing/mastering either. So, I could be squandering powerful software... Trust me when I say, I'm practicing my brains out. I do appreciate your feedback man! Thanks!
You need better drum samples for one. The drum patterns just weren't, idk, dubsteppy enough. You didn't follow any of the norms of dubstep. The bass sounds were nice for a more housey sound. Try again man, it isn't complete shit, but it isn't too good. With practice and better programs/equipment and samples, you'll get better sounding.
Exactly the type of honest constructive criticism I was hoping to find here. Thank you!
The samples weren't samples, I just played via MIDI, but I understand. Was going for simple kick/snare, but starting to think that my BPM and patterns are off. I'm a strong 2 months into this, so you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to be practicing hard and software tampering for a long time. Learning Dubstep/House.
I've searched around for good programs/vsts, and replies always lead me to the same or likened. I've even purchased a few reputable ones. So, there's a good chance my software is OK, but my output/method is bad. I'm even making feeble attempts at side chaining.
If you or anyone else have further advice, or advice on softwares and/or places to study (free preferable), please don't hesitate to message me! Thanks again for your candor landon91! :)
God, that snare, I want it. Really nice man!
Ahaha! Love it when people can appreciate a snare ;) Thanks, dude!
The bass was really nice and sounded awesome over the plucks. Like the kick and snare/clap as well. Keep working on it, I want to hear more!
I thought the kick was overpowering. The "wobble" bass sounds exactly like a preset I have downloaded for massive. Also the claps were too loud and out of place. Keep working on it it has potential, especially with the lead. I liked the acid synth you used for it.
The wobble bass wasn't a preset; we'll keep working on it :)
Glad you like the acid.
You skipped a lot of parts. Pretty good otherwise.
I skipped the first verse since it's exactly the same as the second verse. I would have done it had I been singing, but otherwise it drags a bit in my opinion until you get to the second half.
