    Hi ya'll,

    Here is an other drop from d'Art.
    It's relatively simple, spend about an hour on the drums I think, and just dropped it.
    Could use some instrumentals thou. And A bassline, but what do you think about it so far?

    i'm liking the intro!
    but the main drums sound a bit to glitchy for me, but thats just personal, it might be better with a real bassline underneath
    I'm interested in how tis will turn out :D

    your link is off-limit for me, could it be some conspiracy?

    to be honest, I think it sounds like crap.
    The first instrument you hear is some Fl Studio synth, always shitty and lifeless.
    But I will use the MIDI-loop for that on a reel synth, always sounds better.
    And I will think of a bassline, some day. . .

    link in signature should work now


    then why did you upload it :p
    but some standard FL-studio vst's could sound very nice..

    I wanted to hit the 1,000 plays, and I did.

    about those standard sounds. . .
    I get the feeling Fl Studio is cutting out on some frequencies.
    My synth sound way better, even with just the standard waveforms.
    But I have a small buzz in my soundcard so did not wanted to go all the way, but if I want to, the recording can come out quit clean, but is a bit back and forth procedure with Audacity.
    I wonder how to remove that hum. . .
    my cables are clean, but even when noting but the usb connection on the damn thing (CI1 - Steinberg) there is that stupid sinelike waveform.

    What is nice...? Depend on what your used to, I guess.
    My brother thinks his mp3s sounds nice, I find them lacing of clarity.

    so you made a track you didn't fully like, to get 1000 plays? everyone his method i guess

    I can't help with that hum thing.. I'm not at all familiar with hardware..

    I do agree on your 'nice' thing, everybody has it's own taste, and hears different things

    as most of the times, I just test methods, and this track was to reach a 1,000 overall play, not just this 1, that would be stupid.
    on this one I tested the bassline, for which I finally used my korg and the MIDI drumloop, for which I Cakewalk TTS drumkit from sonar.
    It turned out to be bad for the mix is to messy.
    But I reached that 1,000 mile stone.

    I just made a good kick with the ms2000br, and I will use it to record some old tracks again.
    It sound good enough with fx, so I must make a snare too and then things should sound a lot better.

    The lesson I learned this time is to use portamento a lot more, never did...
    and usually used the compressor to much, hence crapping my kicksound.
    This should be over, I hope.

    Still learning
