    Hi Guys,

    I haven't been producing all that long.
    I used to use Sony Acid, however have finally made the move over to Ableton.

    When producing I always make something that Im half happy with , or get bored , or feel that it is lacking in certain areas but just don't know how to fill those gaps.

    I have uploaded my latest work in progress to soundcloud so you guys could have a listen and possibly give me some needed feedback?

    ** Thank you paracyte and richie_stix for your comments:
    I have tried to add more interest to the track and have done a second upload below**





    Thanks again guys!
    Any feedback received will be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Phil

    Ez Salvus
    Not exactly my cup of tea, but from technical side :
    this shakers, (used as a snare) are way to loud,
    Bassline need to be louder,
    You have to keep your tune interestingm at the moment there is not much going on
    keep up the work.
    Cheers

    this... i think cos its so minimal, you gotta be well subtle with the touches that bring it to life and add interest

    well,
    Yes i get it that is a minimal tune, but still you have to add some touches to keep it interesting.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I have updated at the top of the thread.
    I am wanting to try and get that 'shogun audio' feel to the track, i'm finding it very hard to get it feeling full and interesting without over cluttering.
