Some thoughts needed on this.

It's an extended version of the last clip.

How's it sounding so far? I couldn't add anything to compliment the stab pattern, so I built some percussion around it. Does it flow as a track so far?

i'm on the verge of headbanging hearing this. just raise the offbeat hh and clap, especially the hh seems only right and too far away. i like how it slowly starts, very dry and then progresses and get's more driving. maybe kill the stabs after the break and let them come in slowly again, so they won't get too much over time.

Thanks a lot for all your responses (I'm feeling my learning curve is very erect right now!). I hope I get time to look into your pointers when I'm off work!

and oh yeah Hades, my asscrack is grown over in a way that make the Amazonas look like a neat front lawn!

I don't do front lawns (unless 100% defined as female)
I have enough trouble as it is keeping up with the back lawn.
Just had a serious meeting with my neighbor about replacing some stupid 4 meter fence-like installment he installed there because he threw out the old perfectly fine fence when I had rented a container for cleaning up some of my basement...

His best argument was that maybe his dog would get through some day and kill my cat.
I told him : "man, if I'd have to bet money on which one would win that race for life or death,
you can be 500% sure I'd bet on your dog, cause my cat sure is orka fat and lazy as fuck!"
Somehow he didn't seem so concerned by that remark.

Dumbest part is my potato bag cat actually got most of his tail already cut off after the same type of dog once bit him in his tail a few years ago...
Not that he really needed the thing for say, keeping balance while walking around or jumping a fence or anything... :)

Ok, I've worked on this track for too long.

I have a suspicion that it's pretty generic and not very inspiring. I could spend a few more hours working on it, but I lost the enthusiasm, so it's still technically a wip.

Any thoughts on the 'finished' version?

only on headphones now, too late now to listen on my monitors on a decent level.
In general I would say this track has some very nice details and is well executed,
but it does sound like DJ tool techno to me at the moment.
I mean, intro takes too long, and then you get some sort of nice build up at around 2:52,
but from around 2:54 you just take it down again and nothing really happens after the promising build up.
Even after the better build up during the break, there's still a serious sense of anti-climax at 3:40.

The track has potential, but it needs a far better arrangement, and those chords need to groove a lot more if you ask me, and in general, this track feels, to me, as if I seriously want a Rochefort 10 and somehow all they were able to get me was a common Leffe...

It's probably more like someone poured Leffe into a Rochefort bottle.

Infinitely more disappointing.

On a more serious note, does every track need to have a build/ climax. I always put one in my tracks, because like me, my tracks are very simple. Is it a sin to make a very simple 'tool' just for people dance to?

hey no not at all, i love tool tracks, if they are good.
and i have to agree with hades, you can get more out of that fucking amazing stab!!
Maybe shorten the intro, leave the stabs out after the breakdown, make them come in again after a second smaller breakdown, play more with the cutoff of the stabs...
this track has the potential to be a club banger!

not at all, I mean, I pretty much never do build/climax shit,
and I refuse to use shit like risers and FX.
and look at all the tracks we call DJ tools, they usually never have any build/climax.

I really like it and would most definitely like to listen to that on club volume on some good E :D Just like was mentioned some of the hats are a bit quite. And I agree with you Jordan on that every single track doesn't have to have huge climax.

Digging that track a lot, very hypnotic especially when the second arpeggio comes in. I'd surely dance to this in a club.

Thanks for the feedback!

I changed it and tweaked a bit here and there, also added some parallel distortion (j37) and compression to glue things a bit. I tend to use as les compression at all when in creative mode (except the analog compressor when recording the drums and making the kick) .. When I do that in an early stage I usually go too far and lose to much dynamics.


Don't know how it was before, mix is sounding pretty solid to me. Although the bass stab that comes after the break is sticking a bit out from the rest of the track. Maybe try a really long hi passed reverb (diffusion) with some predealy to make it blend better with the rest of the track ? (from 2:46 til 3:46)

was jamming with some gear last night and enjoying this



lately my problem is I can make stuff I'm happy with while jamming out but once I start recording and spending time arranging/mixing in ableton to finish it into a track I start to hate it by the end of it and it starts to sound boring and kind of shit and loses its energy.

Thanks for the feedback all. The track is 'done' now. I took on your suggestions. I'll leave it for a few weeks. But if I'm honest I'm not really feeling it.

How did I miss this? This is sounding good. The mix could do with a little cleaning up in the higher regions, there seems to be a bit too much noise with that alarm synth. But it's a great piece of techno.

You're using a different part of your brain, going from creative to analytical. It's normal but if you are aware of it, you won't overdo things ..

Alright i fiiiiiinally had time to sit with the track and try to improve it! :P

I think this is likely as far as I can come with it - and I'm actually quite pleased with this version :)

Hope you will give it a listen again, and then I shall make sure to lend my ears out (hopefully) later tonight <3

...now I just want to make a purely rhythmic track

Hoooly fuck that's aggressive :D I like it a lot and it sounds great and finished to my ears, so what I will say instead is that one thing I thought was a bit genius in the track is that (also pretty hefty) panning on the arpeggiator - it really enforces a - to me at least - feeling of exhaustion and nausea, which I connect with high intensity (anything for that matter)

Major kudos! (I don't think I have it in me to make something that upfront!)
