Needs more distortion and aggression.
I think this track was a bit empty... You should have added some bassline or some wierd ambinent noise in the breakdown at 01:00 to the place where the bassline comes in. Also you should distort the kick way more. The synth is dominationg the track (i'm guessing this is a hardcore/gabber track judging from the kick and the other sounds) when the kick should be the dominating sound.
Also distort the kick way more. Remember that without a very powerful and distorded kick it won't be a good hardcore/track.
Now to the things i liked. The melody was kinda okay. Nothing really fancy but at least it worked. The bassline was good.
The intro was also good, most intros are about 1 minute, but why wasnt the outro just as good? ;-)
Anyway to sum this up... Focus more on the kick and aggression or the track rather than the melody and synths.
Nice for a frirst try.
Nice job for a first try.
I see you used a crappy FL break beat i suggest you should make your own.
Also the track is kinda messy in a few places you should EQ the sounds a bit more.
But the melody that comes in is very nice.
I can tell thay you put most the effort in the melody wich is good. but you shold but more to the drums.
My tip to you is to make more efforts on the beats and drums give them some more punch.
Try to use some external plugins for the beat. (I suggest battery 3) so you can add the sounds you like and make the beat in the piano roll.
But keep it up i hope to hear more drum n bass from you
Thanks! I'll keep these tips in mind and try and make another D n B.
Not hardcore, acid.
Man this is not Hardcore trust me i'm a real gabber i know hardcore when i hear it, but this osng is really good i love that acid synth the sound mixing was awesome. And the melody is to die for.
The kick how ever could been more powerful and and more distorderd.
Strong tip: Turn up the EQ a bit and play the kick in slowmotion that can give you that dirty hardcore dist you want.
Anyway this sounded way more than acid than hardcore but still... keep it up.
