I like it! Though the very start sound like the intro to Coldplay - Princess of China. I'm sure it wasn't intentional :)
Nice track! Love the intro and the reverse pads (?) stuff you have going on. Drums are great too. Heres some constructive cristism!
+As I said, intro is great. Simplistic but sounds sweet.
+Track develops well throughout! I find a lot of songs in this genre are very repetitve and I get bored quite often (admittedly DnB isnt really my favourite type of music) but this is good. New sound effects and instruments introduced throughout really helped this song!
+The filter sweep FX works really well. I dunno if its a sample or you did it yourself but it fits perfectly. I mean the sounds at 1:38 and 0:00.
I dont really know what to say to improve on since Im not really an avid DnB listener, but I'll try anyway all down to my personal preference:
-The wub effect sounds cool, but maybe it would be worth automating the timbre somewhere throughout the track, just so it sounds like its evolving more. Gets a bit tiring.
-Ending seemed a bit forced? Maybe too sudden. Personally I think it could have done with the song slowly building down before it ended. Again, just my preference
-Add a few more drum loops, perhaps. I think theres some subtle changes but nothing too drastic. The drums sounded good but they could have evolved more.
-I would say its a bit too short. I think you could have added another final part and an outro section.
I hope this helped. This is really nice stuff, it's not really my style of music but I can tell a lot of effort was put into this and it worked out well, nothing too much to worry about. Keep it up!
Thanks for your real Review Smitsy- I appreciate that in the first place.
Simplistic does the trick in my opinion.
You know when producers want to put in to much for a to short amount of time.
Fun to see that you are not a DnB listener in te first place but you took time for the track.
I know its on request but still cool to see you didn't skip it =).
About the FX. I can make alot of different Sweeps & Fx pri* in Massive but that didn't fit the job in here and used a SweepdownFX with some adjustments to the way i like it the most.
Bass is made myself ( Cause i like that the most ). Sound Design is fun to do =)
You feedback for improvements make alot of sense to me.
The WUB - I Agree with you, it gets a bit tiring when i listen to other tracks the wub evolves more and has more variety needed.
About the ending - Sometimes i dont know what kind of structure i want/need to use.
Normally i did hip hop and then i build the song with the following structure -
4 Barz intro - 16 Barz - 8 Barz (ref ) 16 Barz -8 Barz (ref ) - 16 Barz - 4 Out.
I dont really know if it works the same way with other genres of music.
To keep it short is also the way for me to express myself at very best cause now the listener is not really forced to stay 3-4 minutes.
But what you say makes alot of sense - Build down the track and then rebuild it with alot of creativity =) .
Yes! You helped me alot. Smitsy i want to say Thanks again.
I Will use your feedback to my future tracks - so i expect you back somewere in the future days =) !
Thanks again & Thanks alot.
This is a nice cover! As someone else said, at some parts you do sound like Kurt and it works really well in this song. The singing is very good! The guitar playing is alright too. Admittedly I havent really heard the original song so bare that in mind when reading this. Heres some positives and negatives!
+I love the tone of the guitar
+As said above, the singing is great for this cover.
-The vocals could have done with been quieter in the mix, however. Whenever the vocalist is singing the guitar gets completely overpowered in the mix.
-The guitar playing is good, but the solo at 1:25 sounds like it has a few open strings ringing and sounds unclean (However, if that is what the original song is like, ignore this point)
-Drums and bass would have been nice!
So yeah, all in all a good cover, just watch your levels! -Smitsy
Thanks Smitsy. I will say this though. I don't ever intend on bringing cover songs into the studio. LOL I know the audio quality isn't what it could be, but it's grunge, so I kind of like how raw it sounds. Just my personal preference. I like that punk/garage rock sound.
