Welcome back

 

thanks!  i find WATMM to be a little difficult to just dive into, so i appreciate the sentiment

thanks for commenting :)  i think i know what you mean about moving the gamelan sounds into the foreground more, so i'll feel that out in finishing it.

Hey Snack

 

As you know, fan of your work here

 

I like the drum programming on this and how they sit in the mix a lot. The bass synth is nice and round and warm. The keys that come in around 0:58 have a really nice stereo width to them that is great on headphones. I do think that the opening chords could have a bit of high frequency shaving.

 

The acid line at 1:28 is great and the soaring melodies underneath that sound pretty peaceful. Contrasted with the driving beat that kicks in its pretty inspirational sounding. Overall composition on this one is strong - good work.

Bold melodies. Brave man.

 

Drums, bass and pad seem to be fighting for the same bit of spectrum in the part before 1:10. Later it clears up.

 

Lots of movement in the sounds. That's always good.

That's pretty nice stuff, drum groove is catchy and interesting, melody is pretty solid and good tones throughout. Nice flow to the track generally, I like it. 

Any critiques would be pretty slight....not sure the outro bit really /needs/ to be there...some sorta closing melodic turn would finish things off nicely perhaps? Not bad, just was hoping for a little more change to that main melody/bass combo. Speaking of the bass is maybe mixed a touch high? The mids are sorta too strong on it...getting pretty nitpicky here tho, it's a good track as is. That middle bit once the drums get in and then after with that new brighter synth sound, all well done, catchy, peak :)

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this track I made. I don't think I made it with a genre in mind but perhaps it would be considered an IDM piece.

i'm a little confused.  are you specifically asking for my thoughts on your track?  i'm not sure why you posted this in a thread devoted to reviewing my tracks..

 

that said, the track sounds fine, though it's not so interesting to me--it doesn't really seem like it goes anywhere.

Hey everybody,

I've got a couple different links for y'all today:

"River Rock" comes out of an ambient album I just stared recently and the acid workout is an early draft of something I'm developing for live performances.

River rock has a very dreamy introduction, the hypnotic arps threaten to get too repetitive but then the enveloping fizz of the pads washes across in a beautifully contrasting way. Really nice choice of chords. The white noise at the end evokes the ocean in a subtle way that could have been tacky but wasn’t.

Acid workout is a pounding behemoth and hard to sit still to, the dialogue you’ve sampled is pretty funny and evokes early rave drug madness. I prefer it when you let the snares loose for a bit of syncopation to offset the 4 on the floor pulsations. Since this is an early draft, how about some chord stabbage too?

Edit: I typed too soon, these some good chord stabbage towards the end.

Thanks for the feedback!  Adding more chord stabs to the acid workout is definitely on my list of planned revisions 🙂

Really lovely the way the filters gradually open up to full textural resolution it’s evocative of natural cycles so the double rainbow sun shower imagery you’ve chosen is very appropriate.

back with another track today, this one very much not ambient:

FM Jungle Breaks

FWIW, i may end up extending the track a bit more with some parts added on at the end.

there's a lot of pretty cool stuff that happens in this jungle track. i feel like the main farty buffery-sounding grungy synth and the stringy synths that come in around 1:40 could both have a bigger thicker sound if they had some (a little) nice bass boost EQ. it sounds like they've got some high passing or just lots of bass cut to separate them from the low bass, and that's a pretty common thing to do, but imo there's plenty of room for that synth to have some (more) bass of its own and still not really interfere with the lower bass. i think it could give the whole track a bit of a bigger meatier sound and more weight.

 

but that's just my 2 cents and mixes are kind of a personalized thing so if it's how you like it then it is what it is, and the track itself is just fine anyway. i'd prob like to see a bit more stereo width too but again that's just my opinion. and too much would be bad. seems like a bit of a combo of some of the jazzy/dnb elements of early squarepusher with the synthwork of tuss, as kind of an inspiration here. not a bad combo..
