Curious to know if you designed your kick and clap your self or if you used samples. Great track though.
The 2 kicks (Layered) and the claps/snares are from varying Vengeance sample packs.
Glad you like it.
I actually rather enjoyed that track. Definitely not what i had expected. That being said I can tell that you understand you're music theory and you understand composition well. I was thoroughly impressed where you took the track from beginning to end. While i may not really be able to provide proper feedback, due to never hearing something like this before, i can say that i really enjoyed it. Ambient noise is hard to work with. Great use of panning as well. a little constructive feedback i can give though thats not related to composition is make sure you eq that feedback noise you used from around 1:30 to 2:10 reaaaallllyyy well, or just get rid of it. That kind of noise can create a nasty headache. Again though, Great piece of music.
Thank you for taking this on to review--I can't imagine it to be easy for someone that never listen to music like this. The feedback noise you're talking about really is feedback, but I purposely made it worse by adding a crunch modulator. It doesn't sound as bad without that plugin. This way it sounds more like tinnitus like what I experience from time to time lol but yes you are right that it can give a few people headaches upon listening to that sort of thing for a long time. It was precisely what I wanted to experiment with--sounds to make one uncomfortable. You've been quite kind with your words so I thank you. Even if you chose not to be, I am still grateful for you taking the time to listen and review.
I love what im hearing here. Clearly there's a lot of emotion in the song. Emotion in a track is what separates good music from great music. a little advice i could throw at you would be to kind of chill with your delay on your main lead sound. It's a really nice sound, but to much delay can make it have a kind of jarring effect. The kids playing is a great effect. that transition at 3:45 is great as well. i noticed that you really put a muffle on that bass before that transition almost making it impossible to hear without good speakers. I would say that if you were to gradually cut whatever you did to muffle that kick so it builds up and then have it slam like it does right at the transition point, it could sound real nice. The piano is great btw. Your mix down is about perfect. Great track John.
