Ive been learning piano for around 3 years and although it was originally just to try and improve my productions i absolutely love it

this is an idea im working on - vocals are from loopmasters - everything else is made from scratch

needs lots of little details and polishing etc

Its different than what ive done before wasnt trying to sound like anything in particular - enjoyed making swung 2 step beats a lot

any opinions are welcome

Chris,
Really dig the vibe you are portraying with this. IMHO it has a Daft feel to it and a great "swing" touch and the vocals [well we all know what that does to a track]
I cannot really give any negative feedback in all honesty, this track is solid. I will say that the piano is a little to straight and narrow. Maybe some added delay or a small bit of sustain? Just my 2 cents. Great work!!

This is a new track I am working on. It is still unfinished and un mastered. However, was looking for some feedback. Each song I have been doing as of late takes on a different approach from the last.
This track is at 140 bpm, I didn't want to make a dubstep track but somewhat filled with bass. Yes, you are seeing this correctly, it is a Katy Perry Reboot. I have nothing against her but in most normal situations I would not listen to her music. The coincidance was the track was pretty much already set in motion and wanted a acapella to go over it. I stumbled upon this and it seemed to fit the mood.
What I am curious is, is this track to stable enough on the bass end. Is it to much? Is the track in itself to repetitive? Guess I am just looking for an overall opinion. Any feedback greatly appreciated!

yeah its ok, the vocal is good quality actually did you do much processing on it?
i think the drums are bit a bland maybe - the snare isnt really cutting through
im kinda of waiting for it to kick into some mad wobble type bass or something as seems to be par for the course with this style

Thanks Evo for the feedback.Yea, did ALOT of processing on the vocals.
I agree on the snare, did some rework and pushed it up with EQ. And yes...there will be wobbles, I said the same thing but am not to good with sound synth on dubstep and a friend is helping me out with it. Cheers!

Pretty dope sound mate and very well mixed - just pleasing. I agree maybe some hard edged parts to offset the rest could be good - for example around 1.45 when it goes a bit trance breakish in the synths there.

thanks for your feedback appreciate it

i think yours is not bad - keep working at it

I like what you did with the vocals

i feel like it needs a proper bass line, what you've got now sounds half way between a low string sound and bass

if you look on the freq analyzer you can see its quite thin in places, like around 200 hz and also missing high end where the hats should be. comparing your track to a pro one in this way is really useful if your still learning (like i am too)

i think the kick coul;d be fatter, and you could experiment with layering snares/claps for a more interesting texture

for example just on my wip i have 1 clap, 1 finger snap and a snare. The main clap is an old skool garage clap for character - then there's a low passed snare for bottom end. added to that is the finger snap pulled forward before the beat. also the second snap on each bar has a shorter release time for small variation.

these are treated separately then all 3 are bussed together and compressed

Definitely read up on compression - things like your bottom end of the track need to be consistent in volume and loads of other uses

This sounds really nice to me

i like how you have a full sounding mix (freq wise and stereo wise) without many elements and cool fx to keep interest

i wouldn't mind hearing a lead instrument of some kind come in. even just sporadically

I like it. I think it could be more driving with a four to the floor beat, maybe as a different version. But it is really good as it is.

I agree with evo, it needs a stronger snare and bass I think. Right now the track doesn't stand out much to me but is OK.

It's really rough, but I'd love some feedback on it.

Thanks for the replies All, I learned something the hard way this weekend,but needed it. I was sat in front of a pair of flat response speakers that were just incredible. However...It was also where I learned of the terrible quality I have been crapping out. I listened to nearly all my tracks and there were many that not even I could bare to listen to AND skipped.
I found my sub bass was bouncing all over the place. I have no compression (admittingly) with very little knowledge of limiting (he was surprised to find any). In other words, my shit was everywhere.
My only regret is that my friends didn't tell me.."It sounds like shit" for so long.
Yes, I know, the "Everyone has different speakers" speech. I'm just disgusted I didn't have a clue and should have.

Story, I like where that is going man. Sounds clean. Great vibe. Emotional. Transition at 00:56 was tight.
Eager to see where you take it.
