Long time no review dude! The track is great and a refreshing twist on trance which works, well done man! My only comment would be to have the vox slightly sidechained to the kick to help it come through as it sounded a bit buried in the climax, do that and u get my extra 0.5 star, great job man!
Hey D00FY! It's been a while isn't it?
Glad you enjoyed the track, we had issues regarding the sidechain with the vocals, it didn't turn out as well as I wanted it to be, so I had to put it away for the Trance part. I know it might sound a bit "raw" and covered this way, but the other way around could have turn out way worse. Anyway, thanks for the advice, I'll train my sidechain skills for the next time. ;D
Really digging that guitar synth that comes in at like 2.58! like loads, what vst is it?
Entire track has a great feel tbh really enjoyable.
only snag would be the drums although at the start they sound amazing as the song progresses they feel weak against instruments, maybe use one of them "phat" 8th note House kicks underneath later on? great track though dude well done.
Beautiful composition man, Drums are sounding really original too
Thanks m8 :3
Great vocals and the FX are beautifully balanced! Not to intense where they make the vocals to breathy but just enough to give such a great space. What Key is it in? apologies if its stated somewhere! haven't seen tho
Not really a fan of this sort of music but i do dig it and can see what you've done. Percussional elements drive the song along really well at a good pace whilst the bassline grooves it along nicely, well played. This is actually more likeable to me than the shit you get on the radio, it's more filled out, quite a few elements all kicking of all complimenting each other really well.
You used the vocals samples sparingly but it's made them more effective in my opinion so good job.
Don't really have any beef with anything in this personally. As a "suggestion" though i'd recommend transposing the vocals down by -5 or -12 or something if you want to give it a more Soul feel or element to it!
awesome work dude!
Realllllly funky dubstep going on here (good thing). The drop has such an awesome groove and although the "yug yug" synth is heavily over used in dub step you've put a nice creative twist on it making it original so great work there!
My snag is to do with "Beefing" up & having a cleaner splashier snare as it disappears a bit now and then. Bass made my speakers go mental though, great job dude!
Fuccck! this is so good! Love the start got a real city vibe to it. Filters are all really well timed and used effectively. Progression, melodies & samples are all absolutely bang on!
Great depth used with ambient sounds. Percussion sounds create an awesome groove without taking the shine away from the melody. Kick drum is lovely and round and fits the song perfectly!
Seriously, if i could give this another star i would, astonishing track!
Pretty cool if used in someform of game, got a good rythem to it and the wobble is pretty unique.
I've only listened on iphone headphones but would recommend you compress the drums with some stronger side-chaining to make the drums punch through.
Good stuff though in a short space of time :).
Some mixdowns problems but i'll get to that in a bit.
You've got a really creative flare & your melodies are good!
The problem is that because the mixdown isn't quite there yet the melodies suffer with sounding a bit thin and lack energy, Eqing and compression are your friends here.
I think generally better quality drum samples will make a big difference here too!
Sub-bass into mono please, sidechained heavily to the drums then bring up the overall volume of the bass will give loooooads more energy in my opinion.
Very euphoric track though with lots of creativity! Followed :)
Around 1.10 mark theres a really nice melody kicking off but the auto-pan effect is a little distracting from the melody (in my opinion) stop the auto-pan effect on the actual synth but use it on a simple delay effect on the synth, will make it sound a lot wider & we will be able to hear that nice melody & make it "phatter".
Really nice track don't be so harsh on your self with the "mediocre" description dude. Just one to two mix down tweaks and i'd give it a 5 star :)
Came here from R4R thread
Thanks for the response! I said "mediocre" because I'm teaching myself everything I know about music production, and I know I'm going to get better eventually, but my tracks right now aren't amazing. Thanks for the advice though!
