Will add more hits and stab like percussion and more melody of course as the track progresses, also reverse sweeps.


not bad but the kick is too clicky for me, kinda sticks out too much

Yeah I don't like Cubase's internal compressor and I think overdid attack settings maybe minus a couple ms would do. We'll see when I add more stuff to the final mix, anyhow thanks man, we'll post a longer version.

i found myself distracted by the kick, thats all - the kick should be there, present, but not the sole focus. Honestly a different kick would be much better imo, maybe something more 909-ish?

or if your saying you have enhanced the attack portion i would maybe undo that

edit: and thanks for the comment on mine

Yeah I was thinking of 909 earlier before. Imo I feel satisfied to put it from my tr-8 but I just started this wip under windows and everything is ITB. Yeah I know could find samples online but wouldn't do my purchase justice heh. Anyway yeah your welcome bro.

Definitely one of the best from you my friend - I only wished that this break at 1:03 could be prep a bit better. Great work on those FX which give this track a special flavor.

Nice work so far and have a great Holiday

Already left you a comment on soundcloud, but to make it official I'll give it love here too haha. My only wish would be to make the kickdrum more focused/solid. I really hope you will make a full track out of it.

I am definitely not a fan of this style so I can't say much about it musically, only that you should add that synth way earlier, after that mini break, because at that point without it the track seems to be about nothing, just random sounds put together. But that's just my opinion, I don't listen to this type of music so don't take my word too seriously. As for the mixdown, it sounds a little dry at this point.

Thanks for your feedback man, yeah I just added everything together real quick because I'm native to Cubase and its def hard for me to create a interesting journey at the beginning, so thanks for pointing that out. Can you tell me what needs to done with my mixdown so it isn't dry? not to be blunt can you u be alittle more specific, thanks btw.

Not to sound like a dick, but what was the point of you getting all that hardware (e.g. TR-8, System 1, Novation Bass Station) and not using a single one for your new WIP?

Also, instead of posting a WIP immediately after you've "added everything together real quick," why not take some time with your track and post the WIP when you feel like you've done everything you could with it, but are unsure of how to proceed, etc.?

Regarding your track, it sounds aight in the beginning, but I'm not crazy about that synth that comes in at around 1:28, but perhaps this is just a personal preference. I do like the bass, and I'm not sure if those "robotic" samples should be used throughout the entirety of the track/WIP you posted.

Well, IMO both the kick and bass are too loud for starters, also, the bass sounds muddy to me, it would require finding the problem frequencies via extreme narrow eq boosting and then cutting them when found. Highs need to be brought up(also a good thing is to have a very slight room reverb on them in the background of the drums, but now on the second listed it sounds like you already have that?) and the clap needs some eq boost in the higher register to make it more crisp, and maybe bring it up a little.


Also, happy holidays to you all
