Drums and bass sound dope. At 3:27, when that voice (dead center, a tad nasal, almost sounds like a duck) sounds slid up, it sounded kinda off to me. Like it should've went up to a higher note or something. That was the only thing that sounded off to me. This track was way cool.
Thanks phospho. I think I know the one you're talking about. That little riff haha. Thanks for the kind words, my friend. :D
Dig the drums. Especially that crash when the drums come in. Did you layer some extra kicks to give some extra oomph, or was that how the sample sounded originally? It sounds great.
Horns were great. Just the right volume (for me, anyway).
Dug the chops.
The drum pattern is mostly rearranged, sticking more kicks inbetween but the oomph was just from messing with the eq on the sample. I like these drums a lot too, I've used this sample twice recently, the other was Mood though from a different part of the drums.
Thanks for the listen.
I listened to all 4 of these SOV tracks you put out today, and this one's probably my fav. The two things I really dig:
0:22 -- the high pitched clinky motif that sounds like it has some echo on there.
1:14 -- Those really regal sounding chord stabs. This music sounds more like a castle/kingdom than a sewer. Must be a very luxurious sewer!
The highly pitched motif was supposed to portray rats and mice in the sewers.
The chord stabs makes the track a bit more jazzy, ive always done manual echoes in my chiptune work however. In fact ive never used a single non manual effect. :)
Its been a long time ago since i made this now though, hopefully ill be able to do stuff like this again in the future, had a rough time inbetween.. and though my knowledge of music has even evolved as i play alot of guitar these days im not always confident enough i can reproduce this, then again i never thought i could produce this when i did either, always felt musical ideas just flew me by and i was intelligent enough to recognice and capture it. :) Thanks for your review. -cal.
I'm out of the loop on this meme. Who is Henrik?
Dig the bassline. Lots of cool drum sounds too.
Oh lol. It's not a meme. I'm just channeling a musical artist called Henrik the Artist... maybe too much. Thx for the comments, phospho!
Shit's dope. Dig the scratches. That weird synth thing is my fav part
Sorry for your loss, man.
I love the way the reverb in the intro melts away and gets bone dry for the verse.
The extra riffs during the chorus sound really cool.
Dug the guitar solo.
Really liked the ending.
This drum pattern is amazing.
Intro sounds like dogs barking. A tad strange. Sample or synth?
0:27 is great. Lots of great sequences and arpeggios.
The chorus part with the french horn/bassoon and the other synths in the back sounds really lush.
1:19 is great. Dig that synth by itself. Sounds cavernous.
1:57 is nuts. The piano that comes in hits some rhythmic spots that aren't hit by the other instruments, and it sounds really surprising.
Throughout I hear this cool noise that sounds like a coin falling out of a couch. It works really well. I think maybe it could be a tad lower in volume, and repeated half as often so it doesn't draw as much attention to itself, but it does sound reeeeeeally cool.
Snare is a tad dry, reverb-wise. Otherwise, I seriously dig this beat.
Thanks phospho! You're always complimenting me drums. I get the hint ;)
It's a sample tuned at the "dogs barking" portion. A yelp sample I think, twisted by FX.
The arpeggios are goooooood I agree and I dunno how to replicate them but I'll have to study this accident further
1:57 is pretty nuts, I agree... I was wondering if it was a little too overbearing but glad to hear you enjoy it.
Gotcha about the coin. I'll be sure to look at that ailment.
Thanks for the pros'n'cons. Thanks for srsly digging beat. Thanks for everythin. <3
I dig that chopped up james bond guitar. The bassline is super jazzy. Snare's perfect. Sample reminds me of Grant Green (dem vibes). Good shit, man
glad you like it
I love those drums. Wu-Tang as fuck. Would've been cool to hear the vocal sample chopped up or something, but it looping around works. I dig it
This could've used more of those Dilla vocal scratch things. I don't really know how to do that without a turntable, but you could probably do some goofy automation shit in FL with the scratcher. I tried it once with a MIDI controller and it was kinda wonky, but there's potential
1:07 was a sick moment. That laugh was so off-kilter
The bass and drums are ill as fuck.
Yeah I was worried the laughs might get stale. Maybe they do still.
I haven't done any scratching in years. I'm not usually comfortable scratching with anything else but vinyl, although, I still don't have a crossfader for my turntable.. I should look into that.
Laugh is Mark Hamill
