    Hello everyone! Here is a song I just finished! There isn't much to it, but I am just starting.
    174bpm



    Any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!


    Also, there is an ambient and a dubstep song on my soundcloud if you wanna check those out!

    Hey dubbathomas, not bad for your first tune, id suggest using a break with a high pass filter on it at low volume to sit behind your drums, it will give them more flow. Also try song structuring. like intro-middle-outro

    Thanks for the feedback!
    And should I use a highpass filter on just the break or all the drums? I noticed it started to get a little messy during the breaks too :/

    In my oppinion you used to much panning on the hihats, try to put them i bit to the center.

    Thanks for the feedback! I'll make sure to use less panning next time, I got shitty laptop speakers so I cant really hear it as much ;/

    Better try to produce with good headphones or desktop speakers, because you can't hear the low frequencies with 'shitty laptop speakers'... :D

    Yea, I'm trying to get a decent speaker set but one that's not too expensive! Got any recommendations?
    And I liked the song in your siggy! :D
