While most OP just selfishly start new sc threads and just leave and abandon thread, I will be actually taking the responsibility and give feedbacks.
Stick around if you want to see some constructive criticism (I'll do about 3-5 at a time so please be patient)
If you're masochistic and want a harsh feedback, type "harsh feedback pls" and what not. I will be constructive about it though.
Here is mine if anyone is interested...
A rap song that is pretty much satire.
I made all of the instrumental and sang/rapped on it. Silly/fun song.
Cool layering with the synth.
The vocal during the rapping part could be louder in the mix. A bit too cheesy for my taste.
Digging the energy and the industrial vibe of it a lot.
The vocal could be more louder in the mix and have a stronger presence in the track over all. More in your face, you know?
Pretty cool track over all.
new track up, will return any feedback in the morning once im up again
working on debut project(possibly featuring viper the rapper). Feedback is appreciated will try to return!
>music I made while tripping.
There's more if you want. Two of the other songs sound almost exactly the same but I added a bass section half way through one of them.
"harsh feedback pls"
All right, the thread is picking up.
Please be patient! It will take several minutes.
Thanks for liking and commenting on my stuff, I'll tell you my opinion on your song: I kek'd. Lyricism isn't bad, vocals are good, and the beat could have been a little less bright, if you get what I mean. Altogether not bad.
check it out! https://soundcloud.com/deavantec
I'm feeling a bit too kind today. Maybe my mood will change and will be giving harsh feedback for the one who requested it...
All Night Long-Chill track. Great for the summer. I would actually play this in front of your friend if I were you.
The female vocal sounds nice. It was super effective the first time that sample came up. I'm glad you had a variation on the sample around 4:00 in so kudos for that. The piano-ish sound is a bit too midi-y, so I would polish that sound a bit more. Cool track overall.
All right man.
The church organ is a bit too cliche for me in a dance music setting. And the synth sound that comes up around :32 is too preset-like. The bass sound around 1:00 is a bit too amateurish. It could have a longer sustain and release (could be lower in frequency too). More groovy line would do this track justice too.
The synth sound around 2:00 was actually cool. Reminded me of Tycho.
The song gets better after 2:00. Yeah, and the sound in 3:00 is cool.
Mmm, there isn't much that will make me come back and listen to this track again. More stronger groove, texture, and memorable melody are still needed.
Wasn't that bad though actually. I would've been more harsh if it were bad.
I already listened to your stuff before.
Man, the transition between the samples aren't smooth enough (especially in the first two). I'm into plunderphonic stuff and listen to lot of experimental pieces, but this one isn't doing it for me. Some of the samples are cool, but there isn't too many that are interesting. It doesn't even feel too random for me. If you were going for something in which each samples are connected in some way, I did not feel that. I would start layering these various samples together and go from there.
Sounds like a shitty death grips rip off.
Not saying that to use a shitty "haha death grips" joke or anything, but it is clear what influence you had going in.
Vocals are too quite, lyricism is hilariously bad in a bad way.
Try again much harder.
Don't stop though, seriously.
Just keep going.
Here's a collection of stuff I've been working on, some more complete then others....
>Electronic, instrumental hip hop, music
Dehomag - Komarov
>ambient, tape music, solo guitar, occasional awful singing -- experimental
Please give whatever feedback you think it needs or deserves.
Also, your stuff was a'ight. I thought the first track was a little bombastic; the second sounded really nice
any way I could get a little bit of both types of feedback?
Again, it takes several minutes before I can post replies!
Smokes-This is cool. The sample is a bit too muffled. I would eq that or get a cleaner sample. The bass is nice & low, and it comes at a good timing. Yeah, it IS pretty repetitive, but it's a short song too at the same time. I can actually see this developed into something... More change in dynamic and having more of a structure.
The left side is way too heavy even when the right side comes up.
I'm all right with having just one side playing, but it was a bit too heavy; I was starting feel uncomfortable (maybe that was what you were going for??).
Man, this shit is chaotic and nasty. I like it a lot actually. It's unpredictable but still feels like everything is flowing. Nice work man. It's a preview, so I can't say much more.
The mixing could use some work definitely though.
I listened to your stuff before. Rad shit. Keep it up.
With an American accent.
Thanks bro, I had a mix issue with the recording and the piano only played on one side, I spent hours recording all of it then my computer crashed and now I have to start from scratch :( thanks for the feedback though man
>Hip Hop/Rap, Alternative, Electronic, Soul
I also just dropped a new album called, REDPILLwondrland Part I, here : https://jamilkelley.bandcamp.com
always down for giving feedback and receiving it.
Hey everyone, I don't usually post too much on this board, but I'd like to get a friend and I's little project some listeners.
Our "band", if you want to call it that, is named Periapsis. We mainly focus on writing jazzy music (See Earthshine for a good representation), but we play around with other ideas as well.
If you care to listen, I suggest listening to "Earthshine" to get a good feel as to what our sound will mainly focus around.
The song "When Wounds (Eventually) Heal" was a little joke song we did to "remake" an earlier song.
Anyway, I'll post the page link here, and proceed to check out some of your soundclouds as well/ post what I think.
Thanks in advance for listening.
>bit of both types of feedback
Beautiful intro. The individual note picking after the intro feels a bit too mechanical for me. Maybe using a finger might work (or a lighter pick)... The arpeggio after 1:00 sounds fine though.
Even though it's minimal, it's very atmospheric and beautiful. Nice work. I like this. Man, I would be interested in how it would develop. I listened to the next a little bit, and it also made me visual colors. Purple specifically...
Thanks for the feedback, man.
The songs are pretty short, so I will do a several...
A Special Message-Cool intro.
"Chelsea Girls"-The "seven" could've been executed a bit better. You should get some pop-filter too. The lo-fi vibe is pretty cool.
Sudden Fog-Cool minimal approach. I'm really liking that creepy sound that comes in later. I like your experimental approach better.
THE fucking INTRO-I like the intro. The glockenspiel was a nice touch.
The Burial sample could've came suddenly. I didn't like it coming in slowly and quietly.
Nice atmospheric track.
Harsh feedback pls
This isn't Bandcamp thread mate. It's all right though.
It's So Easy... -I'm liking the abrasive and rough production. The vocal is way too quiet in the mix. I want some more flow.
This is alright...
This is cool. Nice mixing/production. The vocal is killer, guys. Good flow and professional sounding.
There are sounds that are a bit too "sizzly" though, so I would mess with the eq on those sounds.
Nice work guys.
Welcome to /mu/.
Earthshine-Very clean and crisp guitar sounds guys. A bit too dry on the rhythm guitar, so I would add a bit more reverb. Reminded me of Toe a bit.
The reverb automation was a fucking nice touch. Man, I would love some bass guitar on this. Hell, I love to add some.
The absence of bass is my main concern. Other than that, this is solid.
Keep it going guys. Nice work.
Earthshine dude here.
The ironic thing is, we actually did have bass guitar in there. Usually we use a bass vst, but this was the first time we actually recorded an actual bass for it. I'm working on putting lyrics to the song, so probably when it gets a final release I'll boost the bass guitar some more to bring it out.
Thanks a lot for listening man.
I follow back
Phew, I have been doing this for an hour... I will do several more, and then I will go work on music.
>harsh feedback pls
Coming right up. (nothing personal)
Saigon-The beat sounds pretty generic and cliche; nothing new and interesting. Do something interesting with the hi-hat especially. The girl vocal sample didn't do too much to the track either. t would polish the bass sound too. Sounds too fart like.
It's not terrible or anything, but I wanted something unique.
I think you could've used a better rain+thunder sample. I do like the idea though. The atmospheric synth sound fits with it too. The minimal beat gives it a rainy feel too.
The percussion is a bit too dry for a track like this, so add some reverb, man.
will go through the thread , all feedback appreciated
So this is my first time using 4chan. Anyone up to critiquing my new piece? Just a heads up, It's electronic.
>chill, bass, beats, downtempo
All right, you asked for it. (again, nothing personal. just want you to become better)
I would first fix that font on the photo. Looks very amateurish in comparison to the photo.
Simple Math-This sounds a bit too much like Beck's "Golden Age." So I would like something more unique and original.
It sounds a bit too mono-y for me. I want more layering. The "ooh" part could be layered and panned.
The guitar solo is not really good, I'm sorry. There are too many off-key notes in there. Sounds a bit too dry too, and the performance is not good either.
(harsh mode, done)
The production is pretty good, and the vocal and the guitar sounds clean. Very chill and peaceful. It will be a good summer tune.
I listend to this before.
Thanks mate! I appreciate the support. I have been following you too.
I'm a sucker for breakcore, so this is rad.
Soundcloud stopped working in the middle of the track, shit....
I will be back as soon as Soundcloud is fixed for me!
instrumental guitar and drum stuff
harsh feedback I guess.
>instrumental hip hop / chill shit
>emo piano music
Just wrote this to try and work out some stuff, would love some feedback
Just released a new track!
Ok, I gonna do two more, and then I will get going. It will take several minutes... The last one will be long depending on how many people there are.
I would get a better recording equipment, man. Everything sounds way too thin. There isn't any low. The melody around :24 is bit too cheesy for me.
W&W-The "hey" could sound much bigger.
The kick could be longer and heavier. It's a pretty cheesy song over all. Not really my style of music.
Crisp production. The main synth sounds pretty cool too.
The 1:00 is rad. The vocal sample is used nicely. I'm digging the glitchy technique. Nice work.
I think a heavier kick after the drop might be cool to try out.
>first time using 4chan
As for the music...
Not really that experimental, but that doesn't mean I didn't like it. This is actually pretty great. Nice work. The auto panning was a nice touch. Good production/mix. The track doesn't get repetitive since there are lot of things going on so kudos for that.
I wouldn't use that Aphex Twin sample in there if I were you; a bit too cheesy.
The music was a bit too repetitive and didn't seem to go anywhere. Even a subtle variations or addition could have made this track come to life.
Drowning-The intro reminded me of OPN. Not too bad of a remix. I hear remix like this all the time, so I would love something that's a bit more unique. Nice production technique though.
I guess it's experimental in the sense that I was experimenting with it's sound.
As for Aphex Twin, not sure who they are. I sampled Willy Wonka and something from a Ted's talk. I hope it isn't too overused. Thanks a lot for the feedback by the way. I really appreciate it!
Last set of feedback from me. Woah, it has been two hours already. It was fun listening and giving feedback. I hope OP wasn't too much of a fag on this thread...
Gnight guys. Keep this thread alive and give each other some feedback while at it too.
Wisdom Teeth-Cool use of the sample. The percussion sounds heavy as fuck too.
Good job doing some variation on the sample too.
I would layer this track a little bit more and mess around with more on having different rhythm too.
The guitar was a nice touch.
I wasn't too much of a fan of the synth bass sound.
I would change the profile pic man.
The vocal could really be louder in the mix. I wasn't too fond of the whiny vocal to be honest. Mmm, can't really say anything nice about this.
I would try something else.
Don't give up though!
Not too fond of the sound in the intro; a bit too cheesy. The track gets better as it goes on. The 80s vibe is strong in this one, and I dig it.
There are definitely some good moments on this track, but the bass sound kinda ruins it for me.
>harsh feedback (but I already know the recording quality is shit)
>Singer/songwriter, acoustic demo
Hope you enjoy it /mu/ bros.
Reminds me of Conor Oberst
I didn't like Simple Math. Your voice is great, though. You're also good looking so that's a real plus. I'm digging Frost Is Gonna Bite atm, and I definitely like the song idea.
Man I'm digging that song. Commented.

Hey guys, OP is back to deliver again.
I gotta go get some lunch, so I will start listening and give feedback a little later. Just wanted to let you guys know. I won't be able to get to everyone, so I gonna start listening to stuff based on the genre and description.
Be right back...
Yeah, I'm just trying to save something that was once cool...
Sorry it took me a little while... I'll do two feedback to get this started.
In The Business-Nice vocal.
I would start using pop-filter. Also, I would add a tiny bit more reverb on the vocal. Not really digging the piano.
Not bad. The vocal is wonderful, so I would concentrate more on the song writing (instrumentally) and production.
Coming right up. Hope you're still around.
The cymbal count-in is a bit cliched, so I wouldn't do that if I were you.
It sounds a bit too over-compressed. The waveform looks like a brick wall too.
The vocal could be layered in some parts. Like around :30.
I would like some solos in there too. I think that will make this track interesting. Or a short section with just a bass line. I guess I want some more variation on the dynamic.
(harsh mode done)
This is a cool track though. Would be cool to see live.
>Instrumental prog rock/metal
>electronic, house, new
really chill, the bass sounds nice. a little snare might sound good. overall, pretty damn good though.
i listened to Ineffable Journey, it was pretty good. some of the synths sounded a bit generic though.
>hip-hop instrumentals, simple beats
any feedback is appreciated!
>desperation of Ukraine
>>Chillstep / half-step trance
>neofolk, post-rock, neoclassical, indie
I'm interested to see what you think, man.
rock/alternative kind of music
>emo, rocknroll, whatever, get compared to early Weezer a lot so that's cool even if it's not intentional
I'll scope the thread. Feedback is awesome! I can handle it harsh too, as long as it isn't just bashing. Constructiveness is nice.
Ok, the thread is picking up again. I'll do few set of feedback...
I don't circle jerk, but I will be constructive.
I listened your stuff before. Keep it up, man.
Pretty interesting track. Very spacey.
I think some more ideas could be introduced later on in the track to make it more interesting.
Harsh it is then.
First off, add https:// on your link; it saves me some time. You'll get a better chance of people checking your stuff that way too.
New Song- The singing is rather annoying to be honest, but that's just my taste. The vocal is not recorded well either.
Get a better equipment, and rethink about your vocal style. There are lot of people who does that sort of vocal style anyway so try something new.
The drum is a bit too thin. The track sounds thin overall too.
I would add some reverb since the instruments sound too dry. The bass is usually panned right in the center, so I would try that out next time.
There isn't too much going in the right channel, so I would add some sounds.
Circle-Nice playing. The piano was very nice touch too.
I suggest trying out some stereo recording on the acoustic guitar. Some xy technique might make it sound full.
1:08 is fantastic. Nice work.
It's really well mixed there. The vocal layering after the climax is executed well too. The vocal sometimes sound a bit lazy-like, so I would like a little more "oomph" if that makes sense. The vocal is good overall tho.
Fuck, it's about time I hear something good on this thread.
>Turn Up Music
This is from 3 months ago but i would like your opinion so i can improove my future compositions.
I gave it a listen. Lol at the end it sounds like Mac DeMarco's guitar sort of. I don't know how to improve on this because i can't tell what you're going for - it's pretty strange. Not to say it's bad, because I liked it strangely enough. Also, what are your influences, out of curiosity ?
Give me constructive criticism on this one?
Feedback received will be returned
>Shoegaze / Electronic
EP to be released tomorrow. Ibuki.bandcamp.com
>Future Funk / Vaporwave / Good Vibes
>harsh it is then
Thanks for that! Like actually, most people don't give that good of feedback on sc...
The vocals probably aren't gonna change much though. I'm doing them, and idk else how to do them. I think they work for the music. My vocal ability isn't really the focus haha.
Who else sounds like me though? Not cause I don't believe you, but cause it's hard for to me to look at my own voice. I think I sound uniquely whiny and annoying honestly haha
I do joke mashups mostly. I have some sloppy stuff and some absolute purposeful ear rape.
I'm digging the fast beat. The bass could be played a little bit better. There is no groove (it's not rhythmic enough). The guitar is pretty rad. Sounds a bit dry so I would add some reverb.
Heart Burst-Woah, this is some funkyass shit. Hot damn. I can definitely make love to this song.
Nice job. The production/mixing is clean.
I would listen to lot of music. Like a shit ton.
There are lot of lo-fi emo influenced guys on SoundCloud that has similar style. I don't know any at top of my head since I didn't follow them and such.
If you dig your own voice, go for it man. I would still invest in some good recording gear and learn more about production. Good luck!
>trap and dub?
Any kind of feedback is greatly appreciated, harsh feedback is fine by me, I don't like things to be sugar coated. I plan to add some variation to my synths and add some more accents in here and there, also I am aware that the lead is overpowering right now.
i'm making a track for the gf who really likes shlohmo
let me know how i'm doin
really strange mixing, not sure what to make of it. I can barely hear the drums on that first song
here's mine, the first song is my band's song and the rest are random projects
My influences are omar rodriguez lopez, john frusciante and i kinda dig music that expresses things. I am into jazz french composers such as ravel and satie. Also progressive rock and funk.
I've been off /mu/ for a few weeks now.
I just made this. All of my soundcloud is just me fumbling around in fl studio in the middle of the night clumsily channeling my depression.

I will give feedback occasionally to keep this thread going.
Hope you're still around.
I would like something in the high register on the right channel. My right ear feels lonely...
The bass could be more prominent in the mix. I think there could be some stronger melody in there.
(harsh mode done)
Yeah, this track is actually solid so I didn't wanna get to rough/harsh about it. 1:56 is wonderful. Definitely the best part of the track. Keep this shit up. Good work.
Beautiful sounds in the beginning. The snare is too loud in the mix. I mean, I get used to it later on, but it felt really intrusive right after the beautiful sounds in the intro.
I'm liking the chill atmosphere of it though.
This is a cool track. The vocal makes it pretty psychedelic. The change in percussion sound around the end was effective. I wish the bass is more prominent in the mix.
Electronic, ambient, chill, ????

Kind of boring slow folk stuff. Not sure if the vocals work all that well, would sound better if I had a full mix going on, but with just the guitar they kind of sound shaky.
need a few people who would be kind enough to let me use there beats on my mixtape coming out soon.
Here's mine. Just released my first track for this project a couple days ago. Currently working on writing and recording a full album. Hope you guys dig it!
>Underground Hip-Hop, Conscious Hip-Hop
Rei! Dude, haven't heard from you in a while. It's your old pal formerly known as Zora! Music is sounding great as always. You are always pushing boundaries as far as dark, dismal soundscapes go. Glad to see you're still creating music, bro.
Fantastic work! Reminds me of some of my older tracks, especially with the percussion. I like it a lot, man. The synth sounds you use sounds wonderfully massive. Keep it up!
I like how truly gritty this is. Don't take it as an insult, but it reminds me a bit of Linkin Park's older material. Mainly Hybrid Theory and Reanimation. I really dig that compressed, distorted drum sound though.
Here's a Clarity remix I made
productionwise this might be the smartest thing I've ever done. I'm not a purist, but it won't work in mono, because binaural....
feedback appreciated and returned. it's a WIP

Heyyyyyy guys. I've been doing some sub/808 compression work (mostly to get them to pop a little harder) and I was just wondering if I could get some feedback on this.
This thread is still alive? All right, I will do a set of feedback. Woah. I apologize for any grammar mistakes; I only got 3 hours of sleep...
>listenable ear rape
The vocal could've been harsh. Distorted hell or heavy on chorus effect (kinda like what Current 93 did in one of the song). The drone sound could be much louder.
Definitely an interesting concept, and it's grotesque (which I always dig in music). Keep doing interesting and unique things.
Interesting rapping style. At first I was into the vocal style, but I started to dig it. I like the change in dynamic and emotion on the vocal too.
The guitar section around :56 was a nice touch.
The second movement is rad. The vocal has more flow, so I dig it.
I also liked the third movement (?) where the mood changes up to something dark and abrasive.
The transition to the last movement could've been a little more dramatic and smooth.
Dude, keep it up man. You're doing something unique and rad.
If it's harsh feedback you want, it's harsh feedback you shall get.
Pretty generic House beat. It's not anything I haven't heard before. Needs a much stronger intro too.
(harsh mode done)
The synth sound around 1:00 was cool, and the melody made this interesting and memorable.
It's just needed a more compelling intro because the track got better as it went on.
Been a fan for a long time, OP. Keep doing what u be doing.

First track I did in months on this project, also the first time I rapped seriously in my life so I'd LOVE some feedback:

Agree with the other anon. The obvious teenage rapping in the bedroom is obnoxious. I like the production though, it has potential.
If OP is still around (this thread is 235p/141i atm of me posting this), I'd appreciate some feedback on my latest 4 uploads, and maybe Tractor Beam if you've got the time (it's one of my most popular and polished songs so I'm not as concerned about getting constructed criticism on it, but it'd of course be very much appreciated if you have the time).

Production on these songs is pretty "lo-fi" just because I'm still kind of a novice at this, but I feel the songwriting makes up for it in a way.

Pretty nice and uplifting, I can dig it. I mean, it sounds pretty faggy to me, but that's mostly a symptom of the genre rather than you specifically, and I'm sure some hipster chicks would give you head after a gig. Good voice for the genre.

"Men of the Veins"-Really cool piece. Whenever a new instrument is introduced, I kind of want it to stick around a bit longer. With that being said, this is rad. I like it.
I like the second movement better.
The transition could be smoother overall within each movement. Maybe there could be some transition between each movement too.
Nice work overall man. Good work.
You're far too kind. Thank you.
Thanks for the feedback! I was thinking of adding transitions between each movement, but then I thought that each movement would be an individual cue, so between each movement there would be dialogue or other shots with no music. However, I do agree that I need to extend the length of each movement though, maybe add more changes of tempo/dynamics within each cue and add a little more repetition so it doesn't end too quickly. Thanks again for the feedback, mate.
>tfw no feedback ;_;
I know this thread is probably on it's last leg, but at least listen to this, man, c'mon...
Please don't be whiny like that, man.
I'm digging the beating effect that's going on with the bass.
The percussion sounds and the weird synth mixed really well.
I wanted something with different timbre later on in the track to keep the track interesting. The panning synth sound got pretty stale after a while.
The transition around 4:37 could be better too.
Pretty solid track overall though.
OP is still alive.
This is the only surviving soundcloud thread? Let's make it more active then.
New batch of feedback coming right up.
Sounds like an intro to a psychological thriller movie or something.
Very minimal but has an interesting texture.
Cool track. Whatever movie that this track is used for... would watch/10.
I could imagine some more interesting bass line in this actually.
Heavy Heart-The noise sounds pretty beautiful actually. Kinda harsh but nothing too chaotic or ear hurting. Nice. Sort of reminded me of I am a Lake of Burning Orchid a little bit.
I think you could have some more sounds to have a more interesting texture.
Gladiator-The strings sound pretty cheap and preset like. I would polish that sound a bit more.
The "hey" is too generic and cliche for me, sorry.
Not enough low end. Maybe I need a woofer for this? Either way, I would love some bass line for this.
I really hate you for using that "Damn son" sample. Please don't do that again.
Yeah, not enough low end for me.
No problem man.
To be honest, I'm pretty dreadful at producing music, I just enjoy composing things. Sounds like shit, is loud, over compressed... I don't really know what I'm doing. Had fun making it though. Would really appreciate some feedback more on the actual composition rather than the production.. Thank you!
Be confident when you post man. People usually don't check it out when you say it's shit. I'm only checking it out since I'm OP and keeping my word...
Anyway, it's not THAT bad actually.
The song is way too compressed though. Listeners are capable of turning up the volume, so don't over compress.
I would also spend a little bit more time mixing.
There needs to be a stronger ending too. Also, more change in dynamic or a mood could keep the song interesting.
Too much bit crushing also.
Interesting choice with the percussion sounds.
Yeah, this composition is interesting too. The various sounds are working together nicely to create a rad texture.
I wasn't too fond of the sample though. I think you could've used something less cheesy.
I could definitely see some electric bas guitar in this (I know I keep saying that for lot of feedback, but I just want a tasty bassline).
Yeah, I'm glad too. Although, I love posting image when I share my link, so it kinda sucks in that aspect. Oh well.
I actually kind of like this one. I imagine with live instruments, studio production and a killer vocalist it could be a good epic rock song. Am I correctly sensing some post-hardcore tendencies?
An acousticy / guitar type track I made for a game's western-themed level. Would appreciate feedback for it as its heaps different to my normal EDM / Electro style I usually produce. Also, what genre would it fall under? As I have no idea!
Cheers man, yeah as I said, not really much clue on the production side of things, but I'll definitely bring it down a bit. It's a work in progress, had a bit of a breakdown (muh metalcore) in mind for the next section then bring it back round to the idea the song begins with - needs an intro too. But yeah, thanks for the feedback.
Yeah, I don't really spend much time on the production side of things because I figure you can only make something sound so good with fake guitars and whatnot, so I spend more time on the actual composition etc. And yeah, I'm only just growing out of my 'muh metal' phase so I still have some.. questionable influences haha. Thanks for the feedback!
Ok, last set of feedback for a while. I gonna go out and drink and eat. I'll be back though. If I'm pretty drunk, my harsh feedback will be relentless so be careful what you wish for...
Needs a better kick sound in my opinion.
The synth melody is pretty cool.
The transition right before the drop was a bit too long.
And the drop itself wasn't that big either. Needed some heavy kick or something. Also, you need something in the high register.
I guess more spectral balance after the drop to have a BIG sound.
This is pretty good actually. I wanted something stronger in the melody though.
Need some bass line to make the track full too.
The track gets really cool around 2:00, so I think you could shorten the parts until that section. Or you can start the track with that section.
Good track overall though. Good job.
Finally, some bass line.
The percussion should be louder in the mix.
I could definitely use some electric guitar for a melody, man. I think it'll make this track even better.
Whenever you slide up to a note (or glide) on the bass, you should use a pitch bend.
Cool track overall. Chill...
>And yeah, I'm only just growing out of my 'muh metal' phase so I still have some.. questionable influences haha
Bro, no need to feel shame about what you're into. People do that around here because they don't enjoy listening to music nearly as much as they enjoy putting down "inferior" music. Keep on metalcorin'
Hey OP amazing job you did here!
Here's a mix I posted today, it's what I call msncore... and it's even more enjoyable drunk.
OP here. I'm back. I had 3-4 bottles of beer, but I'm not really drunk at all. Oh well... Maybe a little tipsy? Idk
I already listened to your stuff, I think.
Very minimal and atmospheric...
Pretty bizarre rhythm and percussion. Could use some more in the low end.
The vocal is mesmerizing.
I dig this. This is unique.
Don't use that buzzword around here, man.
Yeah, I agree with the other guy about having some pumping kick.
I'm not really drunk, so let's see if I enjoy this sort of tipsy.
Damn, that intro startled me for a second, and I haven't used MSN for ages. Fuck.
Man, this track is full of nostalgia.
Can't really give too much criticism since there isn't too much done to the tracks you sampled so...
Too much compression, man.
Pretty chill. Good for Friday night.
Lol I was just joking around since I thought the thread was gonna end soon, honestly didn't think you'd respond.
I'm glad you did though, thanks. I'll take those all into consideration. Along with >>47847925, the problem for the most part is that I mix with headphones, so it's difficult to mix things well. I'm mostly just experimenting and learning until I finish my engineering degree next year and move to a new house that has a space (like a walk-in closet or something) I can totally soundproof and not bother the rest of my family with loud music.
Droplets is probably a better example of my current mixing abilities (even with headphones), though. Sometimes I like it to not be super clean though, it's all just sound.
tl;dr thanks OP, really happy to see a soundcloud thread like this and someone who keeps their word for giving feedback. I hope to see more like this in the future, it was really refreshing and I'll try to help out when I can (including this weekend).
Good luck with your engineering degree, man. Much respect for that.
Mixing with headphones are good habit to have though. Mixing with both headphones and monitors are always good of course. You would be surprised with how many mix with shitty speakers.
And I'm just trying the best I can. SC threads really dropped in quality lately. People are getting too selfish.
No problem. Good luck!
