    Yeah guys, been working on this whole day, first time using Cubase 5.
    So still learning though about every window in Cubase but thought about showing it to you guys.

    feedback is very welcome! :D

    Update! Track is getting close to being finished!

    Sounds good so far. Maybe the tribal beats in the intro sounded a little limp... how could I say it... not limp, but dry, on their own.

    quite nice mate, for all that i know. Maybe needs some cuts into the rolling sound? A little beat left out, so the crowd stutters when going at it...






    Or not. I don't know, i know shit about producing, haaahaaa :teeth:

    No think your right, I'm gonna work on that because it was still on the list of things to do! :D
    And damn I need a vocal for this, but can't seem to find anything useful.

    alright then, give me heads up when you have an update of this.

    + an idea for vocal sample: a commercial. It's recorded in broadcast quality, if you're lucky you hardly have a background to filter out, ... Could even go with a dutch one, why not? Just take some quotes out of there and you're off.

    This ain't a good idea if you were in for long singing type vocals. If that's the way you wanna go, why not contact a hiphopper/rapper from the netherlands? He might have tons of tunes lying around, and could even give you the acapella of it...

    fuck, i might as well start producing as well with these ideas :teeth:

    Hmmm yeahh I could do that, have quite some connections in the dutch Hiphop scene.
    but no I want to go with something in English, so have a look around on the internet.

    Yeah I know, but I prefer English vocals on my tracks.
    But I know a couple of guys who could do English vocals and that is also going to happen soon.

    this will be typed out quick, as i'm back off to my studying books:

    the vocals on the intro part fit well, but i think they're not sync everywhere with the music. Gone through the track fast, so don't know where or what, but check it. The second time you use the vocals, at the break off before the drum bit starts, i don't think you need as much reverb there as you used in the beginning. It feels more right in the beginning than there. And, the few words before the drop at 3 mins are not needed imo...

    Hope this is useful.

    Back to them books! *__*

    Top stuff you got there mate. And I'm impressed, cos as you know I too have recently got cubase 5, and I have yet to even work out how to get a single sound out of it, let alone write a riff in it!

    Well I had this done in a couple of days. Took me one day to sort out how to make the drums in Battery, but after that it has gone rapidly.
    Great piece of software, now working on EQ-ing all low end out of the FX, hats, cymbals, etc.
