Re: UMEA - ANTHRAX (DIVIDED BY ZERO FREE EP)

Yeah, needs more variation. Also, drums need to hit and hats need to be crisper and groove more, especially on a track like this. Have you tried heavy limiting or transient shaping for the drums? Side chained compression could help too, but the limiter would be better. That said, good ideas for the ...

Re: No Reason

Dude, the song is pretty sick xD Really good work on making the tune! sorry to tell you, but the problem isn't really EQ so much (though I hear volumeshaper is pretty good). you have a good song, but the general mixdown kills it though (in my opinion) there is a likely illegally free college textboo...

I'm working on a melodic bass track for a vocalist- does this "drop" section sound good (for melodic bassish stuff), or does it need help? Thanks so much!

Re: Down to Date - The Knüppler (Two Face Remix)

Its banging! Really good work, bass hits hard as heck! Needs some mixing/mastering badly though. It sounds good with a subwoofer or headphones, but try listening to it with the crappiest speaker with no low end you can find, like your laptop or phone speaker, then listen to like, a popular Datsik so...

DRUMS! XD

Hi guys! I'm pretty new to this. Lately, I've been getting tired of doing my drums "by ear," and want to get better at complex drum loops with more groove/spunk. I would get a drumset, but I'm pretty rhythm impaired :roll: lol I wouldn't subject my neighbors to that. I'm going for drum and bass with...

I think he left camp lol. If he didn't, check out Roey Izhaki's Mixing Audio . It is like the moneyshot book for mastering, I mean, its a college text and really dry, but very good.

Re: Massive mixing ?

Its hard to generally answer that lol- I tend to buy a sample pack for massive from beatport that sounds good, then I will reverse engineer all of the sounds in the sample pack. It really helps with learning what wavetables work with each other and how to make semi decent synths/basses.

Re: What's Your Sound Design Pipeline?

It's mad really, thinking that most records in the past would be made by most musicians using the same instrument over and over. I'm pretty sure the same instrument is still used over and over. Listen to the freakin rap radio stations (I don't often), and they all have got the same dumb bassline. I...

Lol- no dip Sherlock. Further, never pay for that crap. If you are into the "build my soundcloud following with bots" philosophy, you can buy your own software to do it permanently for you, which is more cost efficient. Even further, when I was 100% noob, I actually got that software and I will say ...

Splendid- Alright Then

So, I've put a lot of work into this song and I would really appreciate some feedback. The song sucks, I'm relatively new to producing (6 months), but I'm still proud of it because its the first song where I made all the basses, synths, and pads myself in Massive. Yes, the first drop isn't dub, its ...

Re: The Spectral [RCG] - "Sky Dread Not" (weighty/deep)

the bass is quite nice- i'm not the biggest fan/don't understand this style, that's just me lolz, but if i made this, i would put extremely epic bells (that fit the mood of course) in the background to add to the higher end (which is lacking a bit mate O: )
