Hehe human traffic. I agree with ARTFX and i think the bass doesent really fit at all with the drums, like u havent equed properly, ur drums are also very repetitive and weak, they need boosting as fuck and more variation pleaase. But ur onto something, keep up the good work
If you would make those drums a bit more agressive, heavy, it would fit with you bass, which i like And try to add some variation like said before.
And maybe for the intro, try to use some fx, pads, risers, cause it is a bit empty with only that percussion.
But after all it's a good job imo
Thanks for the feedback guys. Any tips on getting a more aggressive sound on the drums particularly the snare? My friend suggested putting a limiter on it and upping the volume though I think there has to be a better way than that. I already have a compressor on the snare to tighten it up a bit.
Also, I've tried making a riser in the es2 just using a high pitched sine wave and a lot of glide but I don't dig the sound of it. Its pretty boring and cheesy. Any tips on that?
haha i've been making a tune the last couple of days with the exact same sample, bit of a cheesy one but had to be done!
if you wana beef up your snare layer up 1 or 2 with a clap, maybe a small amount of distortion or overdrive
you should also add some more layers, maybe a hi passed break or ride pattern at the drop + extra synth sounds etc
bass is sounding good though, maybe a little more low end wouldn't do any harm
Ok so the distortion recommendation worked great on the snare. It sounds much, much better now. Thanks!
I made a pretty decent riser using two square waves and some white noise in the es2. I then attached the pitch of all 3 oscillators to an lfo. Then I used the latch function to slowly apply a ring shifter effect to it.
My main problems right now are filling out the intro and getting the kick to really hit hard. Any recommendations concerning that? I listen to jump up tunes I love and the intros really don't seem much different than the one I currently have yet it feels like it is lacking so much.
