Much better in my opinion. Great job on the fix.
The only thing I'd really say didn't fit was the melody around 2:05-2:10 sounded slightly out of sync, now maybe that was your goal, but i feel that it needs to be more melodic and slightly less random.
BUT, at least that synth didn't bother me as much now!
Again, great fix! Keep it up!
Lets see if I can help you with this WIP with my opinions<------ key word there.
First thing, the 'melody' synth from 0:43-1:17 and then from 1:55-2:33 might need a serious tweak or be completely changed out for something less intrusive. It doesn't flow with the rest of the song at all and it just overpowers everything else in the song.
The bass you used from 0:43 on needs to be louder and deeper unless you were using it as a background melody/effect in which case, add some deep bass. Also, the hi hat is loud, and the pattern needs to be changed. The 1/8 note thing is good for techno but it kills in dubstep. I suggest adding 2 more hi hats to the kit (different ones) and making the hi hat line more of an effect used to aid the drums in sounding more full/complete.
Add some effects into the song (other than the female laugh and moans) You did a good job with this after 1:30 then you stopped adding tactical effects/sounds/synth fx and I think it's because of your melody synth. I know I keep coming back to that, but there's something about it that I just don't like. I think because it's too straight forward. It's all 1/8 notes for a bit then 1/4 notes and it makes it very boring. Try playing with it a bit, take some 1/8 notes out and drop in some 1/16 notes and see how it sounds (but don't get too crazy with it)
I know I'm going all out of order here, but the intro needs some help too. I think the piano needs to come down (volume wise) a bit because it clashes with your deep kick and bass line.
I know that dubstep is supposed to be filthy, but it's tactically placed filth. You've got a great start to a song and I hope you'll finish it!
Keep it up!
TorkKey - feel free to check out my new song ">TK< OMG (complete)" and give me your critiques.
Also if you're using reason, lower the sample rate down to about 2,000. That SHOULD help reduce that distortion given off by all the synths/effects taking place at one time.
thanks ill check all of that out and ya no im not using reason O.o but ill figure it out! thanks again
The intro is on the longer side, but doesn't feel long which can be a very challenging thing to do. kudos on that. (but I hate that fake clap. Drives me insane. Next time add some reverb on the clap. It makes it a little bit easier to hear in my opinion) I would say the only thing I was looking for was a tiny bit more filth, to me it's on the sloppy side vs downright nasty filth. I think that comes from me wanting to hear some wobbles in the bass/synths.
I liked the sfx you used. Made me laugh a bit when the spring noise (amongst others) came up in the middle of song.
I will say that my favorite part of the song is the drum beat you got going on. I think its because of the hi-hat rif that fit so perfectly with the song.
Anyway, all that taken into account I enjoyed the song very much. Great work!
Keep it up!
TorkKey - and if you get the time please check out my song ">TK< OMG (Complete)"
I'm glad to hear your opinion of that clap. As it turns out, I'm going to be tweaking and then releasing this song on an EP through beatport, and the fake clap was the first thing to go as I was revisiting the track and making changes :)
I'll definitely check out your song! Thanks for the review :D
This is better than what almost all "professional" dubstep artists are putting mainstream. Props on that! And hands down the best dubstep song I've heard on here in a LONG time. You need to get signed. I'd go to one of your shows.
Great work I can't wait to hear some more amazing drops, wobbles, and melodies from you!
and btw, you made me hate my new song that I once loved... Thanks for that. lol.
So I listened to this song, and completely fell in love with the first dubstep portion. Honestly, I'm jealous. But as the song kept going I realized that the same pattern was used again, and again and I think thats why this has such a low score, maybe. BUT, if I exclude the fact that the pattern looped 3 or 4 times at the beginning and end, it itone hell of an amazing song.
So my advice for the future is to change up the wobbles/effects around in the dubstep portion so the listener hears/feels a difference. Otherwise it just makes it seem really long and drawn out.
Anyway, absolutely fantastic to listen to!
TorkKey - and if you get time, check out my new dubstep song ">TK< OMG (complete)"
Well, congrats. This song has been stuck in my head for the last 3 days. In fact, I don't really listen to anything else. I have it looping in my truck, over, and over and over again. It's amazing.
there's only one itsy bitsy problem that I have with it, and that is that there's not really enough bass for my taste. Hell, I even tried cranking the bass with my turntables and 3k watts of bass and then it sounded right. (I know because everyone around me complained before the song finished).
But again, absolutely amazing melody and wobbles.
I wanna hear more!
THANK YOU GOOD SIR
I love the way this sounds. It's all nice and flowy 'n stuff. The 9 is because i don't think 10's are realistic, but I did vote 5/5.
By the way, I love that synth u used for the "melody".
Thank you very much
I'm not going to lie, this was surprisingly good. I honestly can't find one thing I don't like about this song. i mean, this is REALLY good! Everything flows, it's all smooth and peaceful, the drum beat is awesome and I didn't expect it but when it came in I totally got into this. Great work on this!!!
Thank you very much :)
My only real problem with it is that it took 2 minutes to build up. Once it got there is was pretty sick.
Possibly my only other suggestion is add a real bass beat, even if it's simple. That little bass drop is a cool effect, but it's no replacement.
from 3:03 to the end is pretty nice as well. Overall I guess it's pretty good.
Keep it up (and work on bass lines)
Thats really sick man!
I love the way the snare sounds when it does it's little fill. Great work on that.
OH SHIT! 1:55 kicks man! The bass on that is AWESOME!!!!!!! Blew my mind!!!!!
Anyway, great job on it. 5/5 9/10
ps-the 9 is cause the ending is kinda, "eh". In fact, it kinda doesn't end.
Great job man!!!!
Yeah the bass was kick-ass, and yea i didnt really finish the beat, when i make a longer version ill hit up that ending jus for u! lol no homo
