Dident like the drums at the start, but i really like the breaks later on and ye its a Drum n ? track tho as it dont got no bass yet;P lol u need some bass. i can imagine it being cool with some bass. im unsure about the hoovers, they might work well when the bass comes tho. But i dont really see the points of those drums in the begginning
thanks for listening and feedback guys! drums at the start are from a different track, just stuck them in there to bring it in cos i can't decide on an intro...
there's lots of sub bass going on tho, will have to check soundcloud later cos the version on my laptop sounds dirty, need a good sub or decent phones to hear it properly tho.
not sure about the hoover noise myself, trying to make a more grimey sounding synth but will see how it goes.
the feedback's appreciated tho
that sounds like good advice - however i have no idea how to do that - still picking it up as i go along!! any tips would be appreciated - although will google the shit out of it at the weekend.
wasn't sure about the hoover synth cos it sounded good in my headphones, but have to agree it does bring too much cheddar to the table. looking at the comments it's definitely worth getting a more gritty synth going on.
semi-cheated with the drums, sampled a generic amen break, chopped it up and built my own loops. only way to go until i can figure out how to make my own perc sounds...
thanks again for the feedback is all being absorbed by the sponge-like grey matter in my skull
thanks for this - that sounds relatively straightforward so will see if i can sort it. ideally wanna keep it as low as poss cos i like chest-crushingly low bass! will have a look at widening also to see which makes the most suitable difference.
There are various ways to widen a sound. You can throw the sound into a seperate mixer channel, then add a stereo enhancer effect. Or alternatively, you can clone the patch so you have two identical sounds, then pan one to the left, and one to the right. I wouldnt recommend doing this with bass tho, as club PA systems generally run on a mono channel, which would seriously mess up your tune!
cheers fletch will have a play - tbh i'd rather keep the bass centred so will look at switching the frequency up some, but gonna try all the above as a matter of course just so i know what it all does!
Alternatively there is another solution to "fattening" your bass, without actually widening it. If you are using 3 oscillators, try detuning one by +1, and another by -1. This usually helps give a sound a little more "depth"
you clearly know your shit - will give this a go also as am using 3xosc - nice one!
seeing as you only live down the road from me i might have to ask for a tutorial at some point cos you got a lot of stuff in your tunes that i've been trying to figure out how to do for a while.
regarding widening up sub bass. put an equalizer there and put down the freqs under 80 hz by 6db and put a distortion plug or a compressor (with subtle settings) to get it to the loudnes it had before, but now with the freqs above 80hz boosted by 6db.
