    Hello DnBforum. How y'all doing? I'd like you guys to give some honest opinions on my last track that is probably being released anytime soon, doing some last arrangements and would be good hearing from you. Cheers!

    Hey there, I commented using my soundcloud account for feedback when the snares kick in.
    Other than the snares, really nice track. The mix is clean and really good :)

    Just answered mate but what exactly do you mean by them being out of place?

    EDIT: Guess I got it :p. More feedback is greatly appreciated tho!

    Wow! This track like a pretty 18 year old virgin. The snare does seem to be a bit loud. I can not tell if it is opinion or just a reasoning. Good work.

    Thank you so much mate :) Hope more like this one will come. The Snare is peaking where it should at least and eq'd properly so it should be about the snare choice (which I start thinking that wasn't the best). Still thanks once more :)

    snare sucks, but everything else is very good!

    hey dude. like the tune a lot. atmos and vocals fit perfect.
    at 01:55 there is a glitch on a snare hit.
    one of the guitar notes (bass string) is a bit dominant in places -sometimes it sticks out a bit more than the rest. minor stuff tho.
    good job man

    Yes, I know the snare chouce wasn't the best. I'm taking a look at it at night. Thanks for the opinion :)


    Thanks mate, will try and fix those minor errors. Glad you liked it :)

    love the intro. on the main beats may be put a slight clap with a little bit of reverb under your snare.or may b another light snare with reverb on and cut the low end out of it. other from that a really nice tune!!!! keep it up bud!

    Thank you mate. You just gave me the perfect idea to fix the snare. Not adding a clap as it is spreading too much. I might be layering a punchier low pitched snare? Cheers :)
