It took me awhile to get my internet connection going back home, and it’s super exciting to hear new stuff from all of you, let’s keep going!
@faultier - When I Look At You:
Lovin the intro, bassline is wicked, great atmosphere throughout. Loving the delayed sounds, it just gives us a glimpse into an another world, what you did with the vocals is beautiful. Would imagine this playing in a trailer of a pretty powerful film, as well as a great intro tune for a set.
Yeah, I will improve the melody, I needed to finish a couple tunes so I rushed it a bit but I’m happy for it.
Yeah the snare is a recording of a business card hitting my monitor stand and it made a nice clang, and I also think it should hit a bit harder.
As for the sub, I made it in 3xosc, and there are 2 subs. They are both square waves with a bit of low-mid content with added lfo for the filter. They are also pitch bended to give it more thump and sub 1 is on glide. Sub 2 is the same but with a lot more release and because it’s releasing so long I limited it to only one voice. The mids are the same, but I added a second square wave and detuned them a bit. I added TriDirt for distortion, and actually I use it for almost everything when I need distortion, love the distortion modes and of couse the 3 eq bands. Lots of automation options.
@knobgoblin - Collapse:
The distortion is pretty nice to the ears, usually don’t like hearing that much nastiness on guitars. The drums do sound ok but it’s not my thing, maybe have a bit more variation.
Damn, loving this one from the start, the swing, the noise, the samples with a bit of reverb, it sounds just awesome. The bassline is playful, that’s what I love about this style of music (don’t wanna call it IDM haha). I quite like how the melodies progress, and the drop at 5:04 introduces new sounds and it’s just a great breakdown. Love the outro and the end but I think it’s a bit too long perhaps.
@cyclopian - Torsion:
Great sound design as always, love those delayed bits slowing down. Though it’s too weird for me, I have to admit.
Transmission 1: Liking the glidey lead / pad and the sounds you used, shame it’s only an intro.
I didn’t use gabba kicks, just 3xosc (it’s a synth that comes with FL Studio)
@Jizz - Thanks man, I did both tunes very quickly, will try messing with the mix of Unlink. I think the main issue is I don’t have decent monitoring equipment. When I’m able to use my speakers, the sub isn’t really there until about 70hz, and my headphones go low but they are just plain headphones not for production and the sub is a bit too quiet.
