I like it, reminds me of MJG. The mastering is kinda muddy and mono though, the bass doesn't really come through in the mix. Raise the attack and lower the release of your bass and it'll pop.
too much. learn about normalisation and head room. the piano samples sound nice, but you need a bright piano to compete with that resonating bass (which is way too low on the db scale dude, be careful because you cant hear sub bass, and it makes you go deaf)
3:15 is what this song should be, a nice acid bass to accompany the grand without having to compete. nice percussion there as well.
around 4:00 i liked it alot until you brought the piano back. the key change does not harmonize very well, if you want that experimental style break you need to break the entire track down, then buildup to your next part, like the "traditional" dubstep routine.
this is a great first try, but at 5:45 i was done with it. dubstep is fun to make, i make some too, but if youre starting out try and find *your* sound, something to separate you from everyone else. when you make dubstep youre making a style of music where people are highly critical and would usually prefer their favorite few producers. i personally dont have much faith in the genre any more.
but make like half a dozen more tracks, and dont take breaks while making each one. dont plan on uploading them and just have fun.
im just a nobody whos been doing this for a few years, and its really difficult work. a lot of it is common sense. sure theres plenty of kids on youtube who spamalot and have cookie cutter pop EDM, who do get thousands of views. But over the many who ive listened to, i can only remember a couple because they had a unique sound.
so, in a market full of kids who pirated a copy of fruity loops and some vsts, we all have to be that diamond in the shit.
Yeah mate, I know what you mean. Like I said, this is my first time with glitch. I do this as a hobby, I really don't think this is a suitable profession for most people, it is a huge fight for a semi small market for dubstep "Musicians," but I do it anyway, and I thank you for your review. Man... I just love the NG community. They tell it to you straight and they are such great friends over all! Yeah, I just wanted to try glitch because I favour the experimenting side of dubstep, it is like birthing a child. I actually just got a new program to do music now also, so I have to experiment with that. It is just a great feeling, experimenting and finding something new... But you know, I love a good criticism because it helps out a lot. Thanks again, have a good day, and stay frosty! ;D
my eyes were wide open the whole time
kitty meow meow.
it ttakes kibbles to bits
two bits make a twobit of kibble
kibbles and twobits meowmeow
im afraid . NO
LOLOL Yup I agree it scared me when I was making it :)
Good stuff man! around 1:10 it got very ear-pleasing.
I really loved the filter sweeped electric piano that becomes pronounced at 0:50. As that progresses to the part with the saw you could try widening the stereo output, or even ping pong the two channels a little bit (not much tho, house and elctro house are still very mono EDM styles).
2:58 was an excellent hook into the rest of the song. I can tell that you really dig EDM music and want to learn more about production. I'm still the same way after producing for 7 years =P
In a nutshell, I really liked the track. It's hard to make happy, hopeful music. If you're ever down to collaborate I'd be stoked.
A review from a month ago...ouch. So sorry about the late reply.
Thanks wulf, I'm glad you liked it! I really appreciate the review and I appreciate the incite into stereo widening. I'll definitely take a look into it, and see if I have something to help me with that :) It was also nice to hear from you again, the advice you gave me about Zoltage was a huge help to my production skills.
And I'd love to do a collab with you sometime. I'll send you a PM next time I actually have time, as I might have some good ideas down that we could work with by then. Or feel free to send me a PM, if you have some ideas of your own.
I enjoyed it at first, and even though the breakdown led nicely with the crescendo, it kind of lost steam. Also, the wobble was a bit grating. It might help to sidechain it and a lot of the other high frequency sounds through a compresser.
Other than that I loved the lofi EQ on your drums, I'm working on my own setup for a similar lofi sound. I look forward to doing battle with you at NGADM! =D
Thanks for the critique! If we make the cut, I will smile as we all have our skirmishes.
Peace and love,
That wub sounds way familiar, are you using one of Massives built in patches?
Also I didn't like the loss of sound dynamics during the drop, it could have used FX or something to fill those auditory gaps.
I made the wub completely from scratch, not from a preset. I usually never use presets unless its something like ReFX Nexus. I feel like youre right, something about the drops I make are always a little... boring... or at least missing something. Thanks for your review!
Th bass sounds like a Sega Genesis.
Fucking awesome! Totally a track for a Bladerunner dystopia. =)
