Mate, that clap doesn't really fit there. You have a nice deep atmosphere and that bright clap grabs too much attention causing an abrupt contrast to what's under and around.

1. You could lower the volume to put it a bit in the background and blend it more with the rest.

2. Low pass it, quite a bit actually, which might be more assonant to such atmosphere.

3. Seems like you're using a shorter verb for the clap, which again, detaches it too much from the rest.

cheers man, have made the changes you suggested; you are right it was too bright

have added a vocoded bit, but the vocoder is playing up in render time, so I'll have to fix it to make it sound sweeter tomoz

thanks again - updated version in it's place

quite nice, clap sounds ok to me now. Bass i think is slightly too loud. You can hear the compressor alright, do you have one on the mixbus?

cheers matey - yes, it's hyper overcompressed on the mixbuss - I love the sound generally, the dancing of the reverb tails as they get over compressed, but it has some disadvantages too - the bass sometimes dips it a little too much and messes with the groove. i know at some point I've got to fix that, but that kind of thing takes a while (to keep the general sound but maintain the bass and bass drum working together) so I'm leaving it to the end!

this track is a bit of an emotional one for me, I can feel it when I'm producing it. I'm watching my sister on her bed in the hospital, the morphine is the only thing that makes it tolerable for her, and just barely so. I wanted that feeling in the track, and I think it's there. writing this in between visits keeps me off the red wine.

really appreciate you guys taking the time to listen to this - it's kind of cathartic. I know this track is never going to be played anywhere, but it's not really for that.

have just updated it, it's getting rather long!

Music is always there, it can get you through the toughest of times.

The thing abut mixbus compression is that if your kick isnt driving the mixbus compressor, and instead other things are e.g. bass, heavy percs - then the groove will be a bit fucked up and the mix wont pump they way its supposed to

Thanks evo8 - you're absolutely right, music is amazing in tough times.. can help get the emotion out of you.

here's a version that has the correct final structure (I'm going to have to do a club mix without intro) and with the vast majority of compression issues fixed:



think it sounds pretty good

So i ended up working some more on my track i posted earlier. Tried to improve the percussion after Optik's feedback & also added some synths & ended up completely changing the ending part (still not 100% happy with it). Let me know what you guys think, are the levels ok/balanced? Working with only headphones at the moment. Thanks for listening:

yeah i like this track, nice vibe - i would prefer the kick to have more thump and cut some of the bass instead, also i would bring the clap up a bit more

cheers man, was thinking that about the bass drum, it's going to involve some complex routing to get it back to being chunky as it's existing in the attack of the master compressor (hence lack of tail)

will give it a go tonight

cheers

getafix - sounds well-produced to me, good quality sounds and a nice mixdown; works well. I might try it a little faster maybe, just to bring the groove together a little more
