    The vocals have ended up out of tune with the guitars.
    The timing of the vocal was good tho, I know it was a bit hard to stretch cos it seemed to get out of sync originally.
    I really liked the harmony at the end of the verse and in the chorus on the original samples. Would be good to incorporate that into the remix????
    Nice one.

    I agree about the nice wobbly bassline.

    Not sure I like the drums.. I think its the kick more than anything, sounds a bit cheap, but that could just be my taste.

    The vocals work really well.

    When the main bassline drops in I think it could do with a heavier under lying sub, just to really fatten the tune out a bit!

    Liking the second little break down where the vocals come back in.

    Overall I enjoyed it mate.

    On the original vocal track they supplied (not the dry one) there was a harmony over the top. Just thought that was quite nice.

    Yeah, when you try to sync up the vocal, you start to wonder whether they used any click track on the original recording. It's all good for a while then bam, it's out.

    detonate, one way around a vocal slip (or vocals not set to a click track) is to make multiple clones of the vocals all set to the same transpose pitch, then sync them up by chopping into the original vocal track with some slightly adjusted ones.

    my method = get the original rough bpm

    vocals clones = all set to original pitch transpose

    chop to fit the out of sync areas against the metronome or a break with adjusted slices

    bounce down the audio vocal track (either mute all except vocals put them into the same insert and save it out)

    bring into your dnb track

    sorry if any of this sounds shit. i'm very tired. haven't slept in three days. LAST UNIVERSITY :(.

    anyways peace.
