    Yeah man that's definitely a nice start to things. There are a few balance issues in the mix. Just some volume tweaking.
    Thanks. This is definitely something I need to fix that I realize now. I was trying to mix every chanel at the same level. I realize not every element should be the same loudness. I will definitely change that on my next track. I'm sure I hurt my dynamics some in my mix as well.Mr Fork wrote:
    On thing that I did want to point out is that there were some timing issues in the track. Probably the most noticeable was at 1:13 where you had a snare fill leading into the next section. The next section doesn't start in time. I listened to it a couple times just to be sure it wasn't a buffering issue on spotify but that didn't seem to be the case. that may have been something you were doing on purpose.
    Thank you for pointing this out. Definitely my error on this one. I believe the reason it sounds this way is bc my transition (i think I reversed a vocal sample) doesn't end when the next section starts. Initially it did but for some reason it didn't sound right when I played my track. I turned off the grid function and moved it around and I never really found a place where it sounded good. I probably should of ditched the sample and maybe reversed a crash or used some other build/transition that worked better.

    The pass patch is really nice however it sounds pretty mono to me. Grab a filter delay then turn the center channel off, open the filters on the left and right and turn them both to time. make one side play at 10.00ms and the other at 1.00 ms. add a little reverb on a return track and that should do it. Great track man I look forward to hearing more.

    The bass patch was made in analog and I took the voices down to 1, and I may of even put a utility on there and took down to 0% to put it in mono. I guess a lot of what I read online and in youtube tuts say to make your bass mono. But then again, I think their rationale is bc on club systems your bass doesn't sound as good?? I was hoping to learn more about if this really is a recommended principle in music production.

    for me the vocal seems to end really suddenly, may wanna add some delay onto that note to smooth out the transition a touch.
    Nice beat variation and bass when it comes in, i still feel the vocal stabs are quite harsh and rapid (if you know what i mean lol)
    Thanks. I'm definitely going to have to look into adding some reverb and/or delay to the vocal chops on future productions. You're right they are very harsh. I think when I was EQng them I thought they didn't cut through enough so I believe I added a saturator. I don't think I was referencing them as they sounded with the entire mix bc yea it is harsh on the ears....

    I fucking love the deep bass at 54s has a real nice tone to it and adds real depth to the track, nice job here, though i wanted it to carry on for another 4 bars lol.

    Thanks. There's 2 basses going on in the track at different times and they're playing the same notes. The first bass is me on my bass guitar. The second (the one you like) was a patch I created in Analog.

    Nice break, nice sounding snare in the break, id maybe add some more delay bit that's just taste, then that bass kicks back in...love that.

    Do you normally add delay to your snares? I normally just use reverb, but maybe I should play around a bit with some delay. Are you using delay on your snares mainly to widden them up a bit?

    i noticed listening to the track that the track lacks a few nice transitions into and out of sections of the track, even simple stuff like reverse and crash cymbals or some white noise can make a world of difference.
    Transitions as in drum fills at the end of 4 bars and such? I did have a few builds before transitioning but yea the drums were a little static at those intervals. I appreciate the feedback and if you have anymore to comment on this area I would love to hear it.

    Yeah man that's definitely a nice start to things. There are a few balance issues in the mix. Just some volume tweaking. Of course that's just an opinion. On thing that I did want to point out is that there were some timing issues in the track. Probably the most noticeable was at 1:13 where you had a snare fill leading into the next section. The next section doesn't start in time. I listened to it a couple times just to be sure it wasn't a buffering issue on spotify but that didn't seem to be the case. that may have been something you were doing on purpose. There have been many people who posted tracks on this forum that purposely offset something as an effect. That's fine but to me it seems to make the track falter in it's groove a bit. I like a nice unified flow. Anyway if you didn't mean for that to happen you may want to take a look at that section and go through the rest of the track to check for timing issues.

    Like I said though very nice track. Had a great feel to it. Did like the bass that Karl pointed out as well but I wanted more of it as well. Sometimes that's a good thing though. Leave them wanting more. Nice job on the track. ;)

  • AlClemist created a new topic ' Having trouble finding files on the megaset 2.0' in the forum.
    I recently downloaded the megaset 2.0.1. The files were missing and when I was trying to locate them it didn't replace all the files only like a small number of the set I have the trail version of live 9 not sure if that effects it. Also the launchpad is having troubles on the set as well. Any help thanks. B)

    This is a pretty cool tune man. I agree with karl on that vocal sample though. I would also put a touch of reverb to go with that delay. The pass patch is really nice however it sounds pretty mono to me. Grab a filter delay then turn the center channel off, open the filters on the left and right and turn them both to time. make one side play at 10.00ms and the other at 1.00 ms. add a little reverb on a return track and that should do it.

    Hey man.

    First off welcome to the community ;)
    Nice mix as soon as i press play, im really liking the reversed audio sample in this intro, at 8s you have a sample with some chords and a vocal shot, for me the vocal seems to end really suddenly, may wanna add some delay onto that note to smooth out the transition a touch.
    Nice beat variation and bass when it comes in, i still feel the vocal stabs are quite harsh and rapid (if you know what i mean lol)

    I fucking love the deep bass at 54s has a real nice tone to it and adds real depth to the track, nice job here, though i wanted it to carry on for another 4 bars lol.
    Nice break, nice sounding snare in the break, id maybe add some more delay bit that's just taste, then that bass kicks back in...love that.

    Overall its a nice track man, nice mix too, i noticed listening to the track that the track lacks a few nice transitions into and out of sections of the track, even simple stuff like reverse and crash cymbals or some white noise can make a world of difference. Its not really my kind of genre so im no expert when it comes to this kind of sound, its just what i felt was needed when i listen to it.

    Good job man, look forward to hearing more from you, and feel free to check out and comment on other peoples tracks :)
