    Something i was messing about with, seeing what kind of synth leads i could make from scratch in Reason.. This little hook stood out, so Pendulbum was born.. Any tips or ideas?

    Hey Skuff,

    Nice track mate! Drums and leads sounds great! Intro is quite good but it needs more vocals or fx's imo. Bass fits fine with other elements, nice sound. :)

    Thanks man.. Really wanted a slam style vocal for the intro, but haven't been able to find anything, which led to my comical attempt :D It's still very much a WIP, so i'll def go in to it again to try and liven up the intro.. Thanks for listening and commenting

    No problem mate!

    I spent a lot of time for vocal searching too until i bought a decent microphone! I would recommend it, if you're looking for quality & unique fx's and vox's! ;)

    I do have a decent microphone mate. It's a rhode condenser mic (something like that) I just don't have the right voice for VoiceOvers :D

    Believe it or not someone posted some site where you type words into it and it says them back to you in pretty much the same voice Pendulum used to use.

    no idea what site it was or who posted it up but you could try searching for it

    I like the cinematic feel of the intro, and those vocals are cool, dont knock yaself man! Reckon they could do with being pitched down a bit tho! Lovin the drop man, very energetic!

    Out of curiosity, wherebouts in Essex are ya fella? I'm a fellow Essex boy :)

    Nice one guys. I'll try pitching the vocals down next time I go in, thanks for the tip.. From Chelmsford mate, originally from Witham.
