    Hello all. I'd like to hear your comments and criticisms on this neurofunk styled track. I understand that the bassline could use more movement and will work on that.

    This is the latest render after more tweaking.

    @groelle: I'll layer a punchier snare over. Definitely work on the bass more.

    @subprime: Will do :)

    @Zeal: Any suggestions for a clearer mix? As it stands, i have the kick and snare ducking out the synths. I'll try to go for the hats and tambourines cutting through just that little bit more.

    @Lucidproduction: I'll definitely try another version with a heavy snare. Appreciate your comments!

    @msmith222: Thank you! I'll have to tweak the bass still, and work on the mix.

    Thank you all replying. Very much appreciated :) Loads more work to be done on this track.

    just listening.

    snare needs more punch for a neuro tune imo, as you already stated, the bass sounds a little to static, but creates a nice atmosphere. hats are a bit to static for my liking aswell.

    overall you need to work on your beats, and maybe add some fx and a bit more variation.

    Yeah beats defo need work, more layers definately to keep it rolling better

    mixdown needs work too its a bit messy

    but you know what i can see what you have gone for and its not a bad attempt. Neuro is a hard one to get imo

    good effort man, keep at it, im sure you will get it soon enough :)

    the bass sound is good keep that,

    maybe cut the low end off of it and add a sub bass if u know how to do that?


    punchy kick and a different snare and this will be a good tune Imo! nice stuff

    i think this sounds like a good track. the drums lack a little sparkle, and the bass is a little flat, but definitely has a good sound overall..
