I've been trying to make this track work for ages.. should I just bin it?

it's one of those ones - I think I like it, I think I like the melody, and whenever I listen to it after leaving it for a while, i think I should fix it up and get it out there - but I might just be deluding myself.

It's trance - 135bpm

what do you guys think/
anything that might fix it? or is it objectively decent/shit?

As fat as your kick - initially (an till 1:15 mark) you could low cut this kick so doesn't stand out so much.

Cheers,

Darek


Thanks for your comments Darek. I went back to my synths to take another look to see anything was wrong or out of the ordinary on the mid range basses and I saw that LFO modulation dial wasn't at default meaning 0 on the bass station 2. I knew something was wrong but i couldn't point it out, thanks anyhow. I started to lower my levels so i can get the final mix down to 0 because people were telling me that my kick was to high at volume or my bass was so I read some tuts and used the familiar cut and boost for kick and bass with side chain compression. Will work on something new and fresh with the new stuff i learned. Cheers homie.

Juan

Toby, this is some serious stuff my friend - melody line is simply sublime and works pretty sweet in this track -> but I'm still not fully sold on your low freq bass line, it is too (let's say) boomy (at least for me), you can either EQ it a bit or cut some freq from it and allow you mid-range to breath through it a bit more - if this make any sense - your mid and high bass will drive your energy and create this vibe in your track - overall excellent work man

Cheers,

Darek

This is fantastic. I have no idea if it was on purpose, but all the way up until the big build back into the track (4:15), all the different little melodic bits sounded very slightly off. Partly it was rhythm, partly it was tonality, but something wasn't quite meshing.

But then 4:15 hits and suddenly everything resolves beautifully. Definitely adds to the euphoric nature of the track--don't change anything about the melodic structure at all. It works perfectly.

The only strutural nitpick I have is at 1:11--you need a little bit more of a transition there, I think. Feels too abrupt and unexpected.

Other people can comment on mixing, not my forte. Excellent, excellent track.

The sub bass seems to be hanging around a bit too much. Sounds like there isn't enough "downtime" on the very low end.

Same goes for me as optik said. Dig the elemnts, but maybe just a little too dry vocal. Overall feeling still holds up though.

Optik, like the track, but it needs some more counter melodies and the drums are holding the track back, they can be more tight and mechanic giving that drive feel, it's a bit more pitched balearic at the moment a style difficult to match with the lead

Thanks guys for all the comments - much appreciated. The first version of this track I exported in 2012, thanks to you guys comments I think I'm a lot closer to finishing it.

I've updated the version on soundcloud to sound a bit sweeter using my tc eq and compressor. I'll fix the abrupt change into the breakdown and repost a final version in a bit

cheers!!

like the feel in the buildup

needs more bass when it comes in at 49 seconds - there is very little sub there

like the house organ at 2.00

don't like the basslines when it comes back at 2:30 - this bit needs to deliver after the little build

percs and little vox samples are spot on

I'd make more of the female vocal

could be a good track if you fix the bass

hope this helps
