Chris this has a super strong intro - really reminds me of listening to an Above n Beyond albumn on holiday last year! Maybe you ought to change the hats and clap as they are slightly generic - really go wild and explore new tones there.

Now after the intro it falls apart, but I wuld not let that intro rot away as it really is good. Just redo the rest! As an example the synths in the break are just too standard and basic sounding - spend time really get them super sexy and different.

@ Darek. well i posted this up because i wanted and respect your opinion mate, so thanks for giving it. I think you were pretty much spot on with your feedback - i guess sometimes the truth is hard to hear

@ Juan. Thanks mate, still needs a lot of work

@ Richard thanks mate very good constructive crit - i listen to it now and the plucks sound way to thin/boring as pointed out although i personally do like the midi pattern & melodies i can see now that the sounds do need redesigning or at the very least need an extra layer of detail/interest tc

Also agree about the hats - i was struggling to get the right hats and just used the 909 sounds in the end as they sound so good, problem is they do sound generic its true

Back to the drawing board as they say - i may just scrap this and start again

This is very fresh(basic pun intended), so don't give it too much thought.

I'm just looking for a tip.


I need to tame the main synth a bit, because it's overtaking the mix too much, but I don't want it to sound too quiet and lose it's impact. Not really sure how to go here.

I have split it's chord lines into two channel instances (low, typical sidechained bassline, and the rest is high notes) to get some flexibility, I have cut both ends of the frequency spectrum to a degree not to lose too much detail. The guitars have recieved a slight eq boost on some frequencies, as well as slightly boosted transients.

All tips very welcome.

Side note: this little thing took 40 minutes to export

Ignore the last 30 seconds, I forgot to close the filter on the bassline.

The synth appears at 1:40



EDIT:Here is an older version, before changes mentioned above, and with much larger cutoff range, for comparison:

Man, those chords progression are very familiar to my ear - don't recall by who but definitely know around.

Cheers mate.

This really worries me. I have some sort of unintentional ripoff phobia.

One time I accidentally recreated the chords from this one, only noticed it way too late and had to scrape the project, it was a pretty good trancer.


If any of you find out where these are coming from, let me know. It's a pretty simple progression of basic triads...

Lol, will try to do my homework and get this similar sound track for you but please don't stop doing what you are doing as this could be really good start to something really interesting.

Cheers,

Welp...sticking my insecurities out on the line here. At the same time, ready for all your criticism. I think
This is a WIP that I am currently working on. It is a Reboot of Zedd's Spectrum (yes, you could ask "Why in the HELL did you pick that song of all songs to reboot" and I guess it was to combat a friend who is doing a remix of it but dub step)
Any feedback given to help me along with my noob progression will be taken in stride.



Notes - This track is being developed using a "dubstep" beat,although it's tempo is not at 140 bpm but rather 129. I did NOT want to make it a dubstep track so decided to experiment and it seems to work.I could be wrong as my noob ears are still developing.

This is my first track where I am nearly 90% working with my own sounds.I have been trying to ween myself off of loops however, there is still a small amount of preset usage. Still a noob trying to get better.

Yeah, before I can comment on this idea man, I would like you to spend some time on quality site of this WIP as right now it is really rough and hard to listen (over-compress and clipping) - sorry man, give me something a bit cleaner to work with and I will try to give you my honest opinion about it.

Cheers,

Darek
