Hey guys - just about finished my second tune... I just wanted some feedback before I post a final mix for everyone to download in the audio forum.

I'll need to go eq it again tomorrow when I can listen to it on my monitors, late night production = headphones :) Might be too much sub right now.

Anyways, I think it might need something around 16 bars in after the drop to make it a bit more intresting, any suggestions?

(EDIT: Go here for the final version)

Again, this isnt final so it you want to play it out, please wait a day or two so I can finish it up - thanks!

Im using reason 3, the synth thing is a malstrom with a scream on it.
I like darker kinda tunes, I guess there isn't much 'horror' dubstep, haha

The sample is from "The Hills Have Eyes".

production is tight, the highs are a little uncomfortable but that adds to the edginess of it I reckon so its all good. nice one. 8)

went home for lunch, did a quick second mix down, i think things are more balanced now - removed the piano bit from the first 16 bars of the drop so it doesnt get too over used.

I think thats pretty much it though, i just want to smooth out some of the sounds when they cut off with some echos, and she'll be done!

I'll have to check when I get home about the synth, but the sub bass was a NN19, loaded a triangle sample from the reason sound bank ( i think its in like other samples > bass > raw synths - somethin like that). turn down the freq of the sample, set the filter to lfo. i usually lock the rate at about 1/4.

i can try to help out some more when i get home from work.

Yeah, like this. Got a real bounce to it, got some good energy going on. Quite like the fact you've kept it simple but the parts are all really hooky. Keep em comin :D
Hmm....

Very very good track. I would buy the record without hesitation! That b10007ch is well scary. The only thing I could wish for is a little more sub in the mix, but all in all it's a kick ass, quality track.
