Yeah works now...

Not really my kinda vibe so not much i can say to be honest.. But from initial listen it sounds pretty good mix wise. Nothing that jumps out at me in a bad way.

@hades: listend to it now a few times, can't really say if i like it or not :D I think the loop works out but it feels like there is an "answer" missing or something like that. hard to describe. but i guess with a proper arrangement and other drums it could work.



ow absolutely, melody-wise, the "question" part is there, but no answer.
That's the thing, usually I play my melodies in, but this one is the result of converting a drum loop to a sound with an arp on that gets retriggered all the time,
and I haven't thought about a question part yet, and I seriously need to remove stuff before there's even room in for anything else.

If anyone still has some sort of idea for this, do let me know,
but I'll probably gonna leave this one be for a while...

thx for the feedback guys !

I think the kick might be a bit too much for the rest of the track, not as in unsuitable, but as in a bit too loud at the moment.
The (non growling) bass could stand out a bit better (but it's hard to hear anything in the low field with the kick so loud),
you can hear it ok when it's just bass and kick playing, but when other elements get in, it could improve a little bit.
Nothing big though.

I think in general, the low end is so much there that the high end has a hard time catching any attention.
Most elements do sound clear enough, but perhaps try and bring the percussion up more (less FX maybe ?),
but it could be that making the low end less loud already solves that, because when you hear the track at around 2:32,
you can hear it clear enough, but when the low end comes back, it's a bit drowning in there.

I'd also take out the vocals a little bit, especially at the break they sound too cheesy.

I like the groove, but I think it still needs work.
There's a lot of details there that you really need to listen to the track for a few times before you even start hearing them,
because the low end is currently so much in your face.

all right, not sure if I just need to bin this one...

I just followed the track when making it (as I usually tend to do),
and ended up in electro country or something.

Listening again now, the low end is most certainly too boomy,
and I think in general the track is just far too busy.
Problem is quite a few sounds come from converting a drum track to a melody that has an arp in there,
so it's pretty hard to cut out notes without having some notes that are essential to the groove still in there...

It's just a quick recording, not an arrangement or mix.

https://soundcloud.com/hades/grasshopper/s-vfIC5

Anyway, bin it or not ?


there's potential, maybe give it an inviting little vocal sample. obvious stuff with the loops and that and you could have a quite decent track on your hands

it kinda reminds me of dvs1 in some way

Just checked the feedback I gave last time.

Your FX are done better now.

I still think your hats could do with a better pattern.

And your low end is still muddy.

Most of all, the repetitive nature of your parts is far too big.
Like once you got your horn kind of sound in there, it's there every fucking time,
like there's not a single time it's not there. (that's about 5 min !)
You gotta surprise the listener from time to time and just take it out here or there.

Track is also too long for what you have in there at the moment.

The kick is a bit overpowering. I think it needs turning down a bit.

The track is quie nu-skool breaksy, which I haven't heard since '04. but that's not a bad thing. But is breaks still a genre?

The low end is too much, good, but too much.

The second half of the vocal doesn't work as well as the first half. I'd only have the second half coming in once every 16/32 bars.

Other than that, it's pretty funky

Fucking hell. It's a bit full on.

There seems to be a massive disconnect between 2 clips when the drop happens. The shift from lp to hp is too much.

It's not a bad track, but nearly 9 mins is far too long. Double the time that I want to listen to a track whose hook is the steam train from the nighttrain.

You need to pare down the arrangement, and be more sparing with the train sample. It's too prevalent for a 9 min track. The arrangment probably should be halved.

Technically, it sounds pretty good.

Ok, I know this isn't technically as sharp as the other techno tracks on here, but despite it its lack of techincal skill, I think it's probably worth turning into a track.

It's maybe too happy, but I think it's groovy enough. I'm probably not going to bin it.
Blame Hades for my 'musical' experimentation

Any thoughts? I'll improve the mix/eq/ arrangement, but does it work as a clip?

I can guarantee you 300% blaming Hades is the most politically correct thing one can do ! 8-)

I think it sounds a bit busy, tbh. Perhaps you need to take a few notes out in the perussion parts.
It's a nice groove, sure. Definitely enough potential.
Not a fan of the vocal shouts personally.

The sound at 1:05, those 2 notes/chords, I think they would sound better if they were without the buzzing part on top. It just doesn't seem to match with the rest of the track (the buzzing part, not the organ sound in general)

The high pad kind of sound : I would give it less notes, or otherwise let it play these notes only when you take the chords out for a moment.

Man I had a headache this morning. Rochefort tien is dangerous man!

Thanks for the feedback. I'll use all of it when my hangover disappears (already had another 10 tonight as well).

If I had a club I'd sell 5 things behind the bar. Coke (both types), Pils (both types ;) ),Water, Rochefort 10 and Chardonnay (for the 5 girls that would come).

im not sure if i like it, it has groove for sure but it sounds like a Sunday church party song with that organ
if you keep on working on it the organ part has too much distortion and the string melody is a little bit strange
mayb you can add a gospel sample aswell

i gave feedback the post above but forgot to quote
im sorry im not that positive about your tune this time
i relistened the song today and i still got that gospel church vibe, mayb its the question answer pattern what makes me feel it like that

some points i mentioned when listening to this. Firstly its way too long. Second the low end is really muddy and third the transitions from highpass to lowpass are too abruptly.
im not so keen on the lead aswell, it doesnt fits really in the mix and its there for almost the whole song without any other leadsound to make the groove different or to make it sound different

kick is too loud so you cant really hear the details, low end is too loud aswell.
the vocal is a little bit too much
other than that good work
