Fill it up
Lots of empty spaces, gotta fill up the track, know what i mean? more instruments and drums and shit. just needs more work haha
Yeah it's still pretty much a WIP.
I listened to a few of your songs, and I must say, i love your use of samples. Those little snippets of random sound just make a song so much better with the added intricacy. Anyways cool track, but I'm not too fond of that snare sound, doesn't fit in with the tribal sound.
Well, I'm still trying to work this one out. I was actually wondering whether I should replace the snare or pan it more mono than it currently is (full stereo/surround snare? WTF was I thinking?) and make it fit better with the rest or the mix, so good catch. Maybe adding some sort of compressed, humanized cymbal sound in addition would work too? Dunno.
Thanks for sticking me on your fav artist list though, glad to see some people actually like my material.
uhm read my review:)
My only complaint is how much its leaning into the treble. I'd like it more with a fuller bass and mid section, cause it sounds a little squeaky how it is now.
Just the sounds, man
On the introduction, that oscillating sweep is a little off time and very mismatched from the guitar. Later, that pluck seems out of place over it. Also the drums sound a little mundanely robotic. Good musical concepts, but the sounds you chose just don't fit together great.
That is why it is a preview. It isn't totally finished. I listened to the sounds you were talking about and they didn't seem out of place to me. Then again I am working with a laptop and headphones cause of my current living conditions. So that may be why I do not hear what you hear.
you're one of a million.
Whilst you enjoy your pirated copy of Fruity Loops, find other hobbies please and disconnect from the internet.
Make the piano sound softer, give it some reverb too. Same with the drums, less aggressive and softer, yknow? It all just sounds like it has too strong an attack. Doesn't sound chill.
yeah i noticed that later when I was listening to it again. The kick on the drum has some really high attack, and so it kinda offsets itself.
That's some slick 8-bit shit my man. Simple and catchy. A bit long for a loop though haha
Awww shucks (blushes) :D
Intersting composition, but the synths are lacking
Your sound has good progression and I like your ideas, especially with the layered delay plucky synths and the drum pattern that follows closely. However I feel like the sounds you used just make the song sound weaker than it could. Spend some time tweaking synths and sounds to get a fuller sound. Good job overall.
That high hat stumble is a little awkward. Is that a groove you applied? Its just a bit too syncopated, sounds awkward. Anyways I like your wobble pattern. However your frequencies are colliding causing the volume to waver like that. Try to equalize so that it doesn't happen. Good start.
I just love how nicely the pads fill up the empty spaces, so it sounds very full and powerful. I agree with Zmip though, that squarey synth, instead of having it come back in you should try something else, something dirty and maybe a little detuned.
I'd also suggest more sidechaining or just a more defined kick, the song kinda melts as it goes along.
Hm...adding something really dirty might kill the chill atmosphere I was going for. Sidechaining is not a bad idea at all, though. I'll have to try some of that.
Thanks for listening and reviewing!
