i think the vocals/choir fits pretty well actually. there doesn't seem to be anything "wrong". there are a few conflicting frequencies with the different basses, but i'm also listening to this with ear buds <_<. the percussion sounds pretty good. i wouldn't remove any of it, but tweaking them a bit wouldn't hurt. as far as "empty" goes, it sounds pretty full, you have a strong bass percussion pushing the track forward, with some mid and high percussion here and there. around 2:50 i kinda felt like the orchestra should have been a bit softer, but that's just me. anyways, that's all i got, take from it what you feel like would work, i'm not huge into the whole composing orchestra thing so idk much about this genre. <_<
you can really feel the emotion in this. this is fucking beautiful.
this isn't bad for your first fls song. i don't think it would be trance, but then again who really cares. it's kinda repetitively random. by that i mean the percussion is all the same with little to no dynamics (loud/soft hits), the same goes for the synth/instrument used. maybe putting a break in the song somewhere would help some of the repetition. I noticed there was a slight change around halfway through when the synth dropped to a lower octave and then it went right back to where it was. of course, i'm assuming you have little knowledge of fls since this is your first song. i'm actually looking forward to seeing how well you grow into an electronic music producer. you have a lot of potential if you keep working hard on your music.
this isn't too bad actually. the effects are very interesting and fit well with the sounds. but i feel like the main synth or whatever could be stronger and bolder. overall it's pretty well put together considering the effects you were using for your sounds.
i like this a lot. i'm a sucker for minimalism. i also don't know much about dubstep, but from what i do know, it could use some more bass. you can add this to the kick, maybe. i also think the tempo change so be more drastic. like draw the notes out muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch longer than they were, long enough for the listener to "forget" how long they were and then boom, back to temp. just my 2-cents. i really this track though! super sick.
Hey thanks a LOT! I keep hearing that it needs more bass, but I never knew how to put it in! Thanks for the awesome suggestions! I'll work on that tempo too! XD
around 1:23ish the synth is very overpowering and drowns out a lot of your sounds. i think it would be better if you changed they clappy sounding to something with more oomph. and around 2:44 i can faintly hear a synth in the background begging to be brought out but the bass is just saying "fuck you synth it's my turn". i wouldn't worry about the genre. who cares. if you feel it's trancey, then fuck, it's trance. also, the ending was kinda abrupt and left me in the dark, if you can add a slight delay/reverb to the end it would help bring out the ending a bit. i like it a lot honestly. if this the final product, it's really not that bad. def worth more than 2 stars.
Thanks for the review, all suggestions taken on board! (Particularly the ending possibilities)
(Sorry I can't be bothered with doing a lengthy thanks.)
idk much about rap music. but to me it sounds like it could use more bass. you have all the right sounds and everything, but it's missing a super low 808ish bass. but that's just me, do whatever you think sounds good to you.
Thanks. Yes, I think I do need a harder-hitting kick. It's always a challenge. Thanks deadbea7!
i like the progressions. they work pretty well with this. the beginning voice thing kinda sounds out of place though, but that's just me. this sounds like something macklemore would have in his song. i really dig this for sure.
Hahaha, Yeah i hope i'll be as good as Macklemore sometime. ;p
Thanks for the review man!
you have some good stuff going on here. i would recommend looking into adding some more bassier stuff. like some kind of sine bass or something like that. i also feel like the percussion used doesn't quite fit the song. there's nothing really "wrong" with it, it just needs to be brought out some more. i think a bit eqing could help with that. it's always a good idea to keep your drums a bit "louder" than everything else.
there's a lot of potential with this.
Thank you very much for the feedback, much appreciated. I will definitely look into adding some kind of sine bass to "fill in the blanks" and round up the whole thing a bit. As for the percs, I agree there's something not right, I think I will start the drums again from scratch, not very satisfied with either it's feel or sound. I will be posting an updated version sometime soon :).
Again, thank you very much for taking the time to tell me what you think. Being a self-thaught producer, such advices are invaluable!
i didn't want to be a dick. but i gave you one star because it literally sounds like shit. like it's a bunch of noise. idk if it's my browser, flash, or whatever, but everything else works fine. this just sounds like static and noise. why someone would call this a song is beyond me. maybe something happened with the upload, idk. but this is just noise.
well thanks for giving some feed back instead of just down voting it to hell and yes it is allot of noise but some people on this sight might want it for a game loop for there opening start board or something... you dont know. what do you think i should add to it to make it better ?
