    Hello everyone. I'm not used to post on forums (In fact this is my first on an audio one), but I've got a great appetite of feedback and it sounds cool here :).
    So I'll let you listen to my track right ahead.

    Last version:


    Feel free to be heavily direct and to rate the track honestly.
    If you're brave enough it'll be really nice to have some tips too, to see where i need to improve and how.

    Thank ya' !


    Ps: About my programs, I use Absynth and Logics for almost everything. The piano is sampled (But melody is mine). For saturation, I use CamelPhat (and Trash but not on this track). If you have some recommendation about that i'll read them with happiness, but I won't blame you otherwise, I'll check the Forum.

    Ps2: Soz for my english :D

    Edit: 1st version (Gonna be removed).

    ez
    beat need more fower and variation, its kinda boring
    The proportion of the tune is weird, intro is long and ther you get 2 short main parts
    with almost no change within.
    It also lacks some air, reverb on main parts
    It seems bit plastic.
    Nice basslines.
    you need a tweak it.
    Cheers.

    Ok, thanks a lot :)
    I'll try to add a fourth bass. I've already done a little work on drums but I'm not satisfy at all. Maybe remaking all the arrangement (but keeping the intro and drop) and matching the drum with basses could be a better idea.

    @paracyte
    What do you mean by Plastic and by tweak ? You want me to boost the high level of the basses ?

    About the reverb on main parts, I think I'll create a breath-like athmo with lot of reverb on it, or do you think it's a better idea to just add a longer and stronger reverb on basses ?

    Any comment on the Intro ? I've got a feeling that there is too much of samples of my voice.

    Thanks a lot guys :D I'll submit the update when I'll have time to do that.

    I'm really a noob to producing DnB, also new to this forum. Although thinking you can get better comments from other forrumers... still want to hand out some thought's. I think your baseline is heavily distorted (clipping).. Definitely need some work there.. I Like the piano! But again on this forum you can get good quality reviews from more advances producers..

    Greets ;)

    @MrStitno
    Yeah you're right but that effect is the one wanted, and, in fact, I can't really do something about that 'coz moving just a little bit the knob makes the bass sounds like horrible high noise. I could maybe use another distortion plugin if someone else told me that it sounds too crappy but I prefer at first create a new bass to get a more varied track.
    Anyway, thanks for the feedback :) It's well appreciated, and I'll keep it in memory even if it's not in my priorities right now.


    Ps: I listened to your track on soundcloud and it sounds nice but it could be wonderful if you add a simple sine as a sub for the basses :)

    Yeah im still in a big fight with that one, there is actually a sine rolling below and freq cut of de reeces below 80hz. Working on my third production know and i found that the volume of the reece basses should be secnificant lower than the sub.. Think there's where the problem with that track lies..Its actually my first finished track and i really alsmost died getting the sound right and it still isnt.. ;)

    Anny way thanks !

    feedback on your soundcloud;
    nice mixdown and ideas but still you gotta put more things into it, not just copy paste verses ;)

    New version. I tried to put your ideas on. I think the arrangement is a bit better. If you've got some new tips to share i'm still listening (Especially about the drum patterns) :)


    You're welcome. Nice sound. You should listen to my first finished tracks (mmmh, in fact probably not) :D

    Replied :) Edit: Big big respect to your tracks !!

    Hehe now that you mention it :D You're all right. I guess I'm gonna copy drum patterns from other tracks. It's a real nightmare for me :(
