Fun recording to stumble on. I've been sampling the merchant from resident evil 4 in my tracks lately. "WHAT ARE YOU BUYIN?"
Nothing. I just stopped by to say hi and leave you a crappy review. Nothing will be purchased.
Well your rating makes it a passable review :P
I loved your synths, really awesome variety in them! Help me out, I forget what program your using? Drum kit was kind of flat for a dubstep track. I'm not sure how you go about things but when I'm making a dance genre I always nail the drums before doing anything... actually, that standard holds for 100% of the things I play with. Drums first! Fatten that snare up :3
There were at least 3 drum sets there :( I guess I just don't know how to drums.
The main DAW is MuLab, but the drums were some DrumCore + some separate kick and snare + the room and overheads from some rock kit from ezDrummer.
Thanks for review, highly appreciated.
Damn this is some old school techy stuff. Love that dark atmosphere. Synths and pads were really cool. Only thing about the track I disagreed with was some minor EQ of the snare drum but it seems like everyone has their own snare preferences these days. Who am I to judge? Good work S3C!!
I could hear that sexy kit through that filter in the beginning. Nothing gets my heart beating like a good old fashioned 170-180 BPM DNB rhythm melting into a track. Track had a really airy liquid vibe to it. That bass/pads were a little lo fi/uninteresting to me but they reminded me of some of the old moving shadow mixes done by Calyx. Google: moving shadow 05.2 to see what I mean. Loved that mix :)
This tracks all about that up tempo rhythm and it feels satisfying. Love it!!
thanks man...ahh I think I understand the similarities between Calyx, one of the first DnB artists I heard, in GTA3.
hahaha, classy noises. Loved it. I just wish it went on for a bit longer. Short track.
To be fair, I did want to continue on this one a bit further, a buddy of mine even freestyled some miraculous 'horror hop' lyrics to it when I played it back, but I lost the patches of the intro pads and the weird drop stabby things.. bit of a shame, but I've been working on lots of different stuff and this was a little bit of a joke anyways, there's some better stuff comin
thx for the comment :>
At first I thought you meant "realizations." After learning that you can spell that word with either a "s" or a "z" I also learned that it has a musical definition. Fascinating.
Your piece has a way of morphing the beat a little each bar. Love it. Techy, krafty, dancy.At 3:04 your bass sounds like it seriously clips out the audio. Not sure what your intention was there but I'll assume it wasn't intentional. I had to listen to it a few times but all I hear is good ol fashioned too much bass distortion.
Good luck this round dude!
Thanks for the words, and yea I'm a clever wordy-poops. The bass issue is basically a bass issue - I didn't have time in my schedule to mix this down, nor with the doodoo computer that rendered it out in half an hour to be able to spot fix things.
Probably a quick little EQ LP dip on a few channels will resolve the issue.
Luck to you too broheim.
Edit: Maybe worth noting, I wasn't being tongue in cheek with the title, only I worked on and embellished this piece. :P
haha, gritty and grimy. Fucking love it. Dillenger meets meshugga meets uhhh... 4/4? dunno. My metal lingo is kind of bare these days but I was digging those syncopated riffs. The solo was water tight too. Coolness :)
Loved that piano. I can hear that romantic influence. I never really got too into Debussy but chopins my dog. Really pro use of dynamics in those crechendos/decrechendos. This hits a really good smattering of emotions and themes. Good stuff :)
Chopin Twins, UNITE! YEah dude, but glad you liked it, thanks for noticing the dynamics. Thing was a bitch to mix. :D
Swwwwwwweeeeeet. Loved that ghenghis tron arsonists get all the electro metal vibe you had going. Wish I had some cans to listen in on. You metal heads typically care more about sound quality than EDM producers :/
Good luck in round one dude!
Laaaahv. Really intricate drum programing! Cool to hear you coming out with some IDM. You familiar with the flashbulb at all?
thanks for the review :3
and no, but I will look them up.
