No worries il go back to the original and use this intro for a more cinematic or atmospheric ambient track.Yo, thanks for posting.
I think this entire time you've had as good track idea, with very nice sounds, you just needed to structure/arrange it in a more familiar way over a 6-8 minute timeframe. I think you are still struggling with that. The new long intro you introduced is not as good as the previous one imo, feels out of place and not connected with the main track idea.
Take what you already had and create an arrangement that allows it to build and come together, imo you don't really need to create different parts or more ideas, just use the elements and theme of what exists already and use them to create proper track sections that allow for breakdowns, build, intro and outro etc.
Even if you have to start with something basic; like Intro, build(up), breakdown/peak, build(down), outro then thats a good structure foundation to grow from. In the previous track I think you already had a nice intro and build up of your elements down, but then were missing a clear middle section like a breakdown to be expressive or atmospheric that leads to the coming together and eventually build-down/deconstruction into an outro. Your outro in these previous tracks is also kind of done as well actually.
Hi Hensmon. No worries man. I can see you and Gagi have been very busy. Cant wait till Nov 1st!Yo Bobby sorry for the slow response, been busy as fuck.
I think this latest version is an improvement and you are heading in the right direction. Tell you what. let's see if any of the other folks here pitch in, then we can take it to personal messages to see if we can finalize the arrangement (which still needs work). But you are definitely getting there and think you will have a good track once those arrangement fixes are made.
Thanks mate. Im keeping this one, and have automated things better on it nowI really love this version. It screams 90s and in a good way, no scratch that, in a great way.
I also like the previous version, its more beefy, but this one has such a great chill vibe.
Thank you man. Il consider your advice dude. Definitely about the kick and tinny perc bits and that it needs more bass. Sometimes its hard to make a sound less tinny, is it the snare you mean, the sound with the frills ( trills)/ drum roll, approaching a introduction to a new sound? If so i was thinking of changing it already but was interested in other opinions. So cheers, if its that sound i will look into choosing another snare ( or a warmer reverb for it to eliminate the tinnyness)It needs another kick, and the some of the percs sounds too tinny, and a little bit more low-end (a stronger bassline, or some kind of countermelodic bassline), and some overall eq:uing. Dont remove the acid! I would like the acid to come in with a stronger lead/hook in the latter half of the track. Now the acid sounds a bit....weird?
But def a huge improvement in the arrangement and the track does feel more structured than last time I listened. But to me its still not a complete ready-for-release track.
Cheers man, i did wonder if id over done certain areas. I always keep mixes on my PC so will keep this but will also do a mix with certain alterations. ThanksStructure-wise definitely an improvement (yay!), but I now feel there's a load of different ideas, just thrown one on top of another, without any musical cohesion. So now I would maybe focus my attention towards that; to build a track that's has clear ideas but has enough variety to keep it interesting throughout. It's hard hitting that balance as a producer, and hard giving concrete feedback as a listener, especially in that case.
But definitely keep working on it!
