Pretty nice intro man.I like the percussion (low-fi + band pass???).
The drop is sweet also.I think that the track needs a darker (lower keys and maybe some glide instead of climbing notes) bassline and general feel to it.The bass itself sounds a bit too wide so maybe look up the stereo imaging.Also it sounds like it has more distortion than it needs and could use a thicker,deeper (not so growly) synth layered with it.Sub could be a little stronger in my opinion (maybe a couple of dB more?).The kick is nice and punchy but i think it has a nasty tail (probably from the sub kick) that has to be removed.I don't think the snare needs any work, its pretty massive.Also the whole mix sounds a bit harsh on the high frequencies.Maybe you have some EQ on the master or multiband compressing.
So that's it, i hope i gave you some useful thoughts.
Keep up the great work !!!
Now THAT's some good feedback. Thanks for that, man. I'll definitely take that stuff into consideration. You'll have to forgive me if the EQ is a bit off, usually I have a sound system I can play this out of to check the mastering but I only had my trusty headphones this time around xD
Thanks again for that awesome review, man. It's always nice to get ones like that :)
A few tips and tricks.
First that catches my ear are the stereo drums.
1.Drums should be almost if not completely mono (same goes for sub bass).
2.Slap a few EQ's on the different mixer tracks.Every instrument has a place in a song.
For example the kick drum is almost always in the lower end of the bass band ( around 80- 120 Hz).Any frequencies below 80 Hz are not good for your kick (cut them with an EQ) drum.After you do that you can add a SUB kick that sits in the sub bass band (40-80 Hz).To get the snare to sound best it needs to be peaking around 220-240 Hz (everything below 180-200 Hz should be cut).
3.String instrument, leads, ambient sounds....... and so on , should have better presence in the mid-high range of the track (low band cutting again).
About the track itself, i pretty liked the melodies, but i'm not too fond of the amen (as a longtime drum and bass lover) anymore, its too overused.
So there you go, i hope i was of some use to you :)
PS.The frequencies i mentioned may not be completely accurate if you are aiming at producing lighter-liquid drum and bass tracks.
Thanks man, this is my first track and I'm really looking into sticking with DnB so all the advice I can get really helps.
Ultra sick bassline as usual :)
You are getting better my friend.
Still need mix your tracks properly, but the structure of the track is just awesome.
Drums are awesome too,but the hats are ringing a bit too much in my ears to be honest.
But really once again i have to tell that i am in awe at the complexity of your tracks !
Just keep on doing what you do best and you will be big in no time, trust me. :)
PS.I'd appreciate if you could drop a review on my latest (need some feedback).
thanks ma3hbo! I will check up on those hats, and I shall review your song in good time that is.
