For example; the random cut at 0:44 isn't really needed, it just throws me off when the same melody comes back. The cut at 1:16 is really off throwing too, there could be a slower fade that then transitions straight into the build up. The pure square synth near the end doesn't really feel like it should be there, maybe it could be a little lower, just adding to the feel a little.
It is a pretty solid track otherwise, really nice job!
I, myself have been playing around with this little thing called "otomata". It's a fun tool to mess around with. http://www.earslap.com/projectslab/otomata
I'd really like to do dubstep, but I am not very good at it.
Little song I'm working on called Fire on Clingmans Dome
I'm gonna go sit in the corner and cover some Linkin Park now.
I've alway liked their instrumentals more though.
What do you guys think of this? I made it a long time ago but decided it wasn't up to standards, though now I feel it could be better but maybe it's just missing something. A heavier drop perhaps?
-nvm it was my computer-
Not feeling the reese at all though, don't like those high frequencies.. can't explain it but the sound in general is not great. Could do with a more classical detuned saw, chorussed type thing in my mind.
this is now obsolete sorry for taking time.
I think in start needs more wobbly end and also through whole first part it is sort of empty now and takes too long for it to kick in, melody I think sounds nice and if you combine first and second part with wobbly end and melody it can be good thing
I amped up song today and made faster better and also twiddled with tone on guitar now is more like other song that I made called Drive Baby, Drive (if you remember maybe not) it is almost same sort of song straight ahead and now I just need vocals and also guitar solo on top of it to make cherry.
I've been listening to some circus records stuff from 2008-2010 lately and tried to create something like it. It's surprisingly hard to make those high "doctor p" synths so I made some noise instead.
i like it a lot. sweet synthline and awesome beats. i think it would sound great if after that quieter section you brought it back with some orgasm inducing bass and harmonies
An old midi track I made some years ago. Redid it with freshened sound.
Goal was to make a cheesy intro tune for some cheesy show.
"Hearts Among The Stars"
Idea behind song is fast and hard and almost sound like it is about to break down but hopefully now you will find song sound a little more not hasty.
I like thing you made with omata it has nice melody and only thing that needs added now is more wobbly wobble and also maybe make melody a bit faster to work with kicking drums?
On the composition side, you should really make a more discernible melody. i mean I get that it's complextro blah blah blah banging on 2 notes with 12 different synths, but you might want to pay a little more attention to it. This is no biggie, just a sidenote. The bigger problem here is how repetitive it gets. Like, you play 4 different notes through the whole song. Okay, that's fine with the complextro part, but try to to vary it a little in the breakdown, make some lead melody, something cool to catch your ear.
On the mixing and synth side, this is what really gets me. Obviously you are new at this, but anyway: You have some problems with the volume levels between your synths. Some are very loud, while others seem a lot more quiet. Same goes for the way how some are ultrawide stereowise and others are centred. The synths themselves get a little fatiguing. They are either kind of muddy or with too much high end so they kinda pierce. And that big one that starts each phrase really seems to bring everything else down, it just takes over the whole track compared to the others. You could also add some pad or something underneath it, just drums and a synth gets kinda boring.
The drums in your song are usually ok. I would turn down the decay a little to make some snare hits shorter especially, they seem to splash a little too much for this high bpm. And you could always add some crispy percussion, since everything seems to be in the mud when the complextro section plays.
I listened to this with my shitty headphones, so if I'm TOTALLY off on some of the mixing things you should ignore it, but most of this should still stand true.
