Mid-range on the pad to me comes across as a little harsh. @2:46 is an example of where it's the harshest where it's clashing with the 303.

Over all I liked the groove of this tho. *thumbs up*


Thanks dude, appreciate the feedback. I also noticed the pads sound a bit harsh at around the time you mentioned, but otherwise not so much, I hope, particularly in the 2nd segment.

Np man.

2nd part seems copacetic until around 6:10'ish mark.

If you do decide to try and smooth it out, I would try not to change the overall pad sound too much though, it fits very well imo. Pad is also levelled perfectly, which is why I'd opt for EQ over Gain to fix it.

Sounds good, thanks for the suggestion. I may leave it as is, because it took me hours just to try and get a decent recording, and I've already changed the levels on my hardware anyway. I'm really hoping mastering can smooth it out, if possible, but if not, I'll have to decide if I want to go back and try and re-record again.

Ha! Just heard this...very progressive and a serious kraftwerkish old school style. Totally dig this.
Very good use of atmosphere and filter cuts. Great work, brought me back!

--------------------------------------------

Welp, to my surprise a friend got me the synthmaster 1&2 bundle for Christmas. So, I started farting around with some presets and even got some sound design presets going. Really liking this vst so far and the ease of use. Wide tones on their notch filters and some serious low end bass tones.

Lovely flavour here mate, just chugs along with a great groove and you've been brave to keep that 303 line very dry but it works.

Mixwise almost there, just sound a weeny bit squashed when the kik hits

I must look into this synth, never heard of it until now, that bass sounds so rich n harmonic.
Mate a great track, really, but it goes shitty at about 2.20 when that off-time 'clumsy' sounding shit begins, lol. Strip that out.

So each instrument wasn't recorded to it's own track? hmm. Should be able to deal with it in post though, yeah.

Agree with Richard, it sounds nice up to around 2:24, where it starts to sound off.

Thanks for listening and feedback mate. Yeah, I'm hoping if the kick is a bit too loud, it can be fixed via mastering. I played it back and decreased the low frequency on my mixer and I think it sounded somewhat better.

Yeah, unfortunately I've never multitracked - I've done all my recordings with hardware, 'out of the box' directly into my digital 4-track recorder. In retrospect, it probably would've been nice to have learned to use some software for multitracking, but yeah...

I was actually just talking to a friend in LA who does his own recordings about this. (He's in a "rock" band) He was saying how tedious pro-tools was for making adjustments when routing in multiple tracks, and how he loves Reaper now...

Haven't messed around with live recording myself. Seems like it would be really fun. Props though, live recording is like, the hardest form of music...much easier sequencing everything out in a piano roll, that's for sure.

So I've been at this one on and off for months.
It's my take on 80's meets current electronica,..hopefully.

Those of you who recall Gary Numan will hear some echo's harking back.

Please bare with having to go to Soundcloud I have emailed them to ask why I can no longer embed

Sooo, the kick n bass - feelin it or not?

Thanks, man. Yeah, I mean, live recording is pretty much all I've ever known - for better or worse. I'm under the impression, however, that if I'm using a bunch of different instruments/machines and synths, multitracking may make the track sound better/fuller, so perhaps it's worth learning down the road if I continue to make tracks using more than just a drum machine and 303/x0xb0x.

I'm feelin' the bass, but not so sure about the kick, personally. I would try maybe using a 909-esque-sounding kick, if possible, and see how it compares. Or perhaps a similar kick they use in these recent ebm/new wave productions - but that's just me.

It would sound much better with different kick, i agree. It's somehow too lo-fi for the rest of the track imo. Nice bass.

Regarding embed from sc... Do you get the overlay window when you click on share button?
