Re: possibly my best song... would love serious feedback to help me onto the "next le

thanks bud. My drum process is quite extensive.... but a quick rundown would be:

1. lots of resampling, dynamic processing and eqing
2. layering of breaks, especially amen with hi passing and eqing to taste
3. choice of samples is really important sidechaining and parallel compressing

cheers

Wow! Great work, I reckon you're already at that next level. Only critique I have is the hats seem really ear piercing on the high frequencies, maybe let a little bit more through lower down the spectrum, not a lot mind, and maybe cut everything above about 16khz to tame them in a bit. Apart from that this is fucking fantastic!

Is that fm synthesis? Really good work by the way. Lots of fun stuff going on keeping the interesting.

Thanks for the tip kronix, noticed that this time around. And thanks for the support!

No FM synthesis here... I am trying my hand at FM8 tho, looks rather complicated so far. Thanks for the support once again IV

And to everyone else I'm really glad you all like it! Makes me more bummed that I was unable to enter the contest but oh well until next time I guess. Cheers everyone

Sick work man!
Only thing I could suggest is compressing your mix to sound louder? Sounds a little quiet to me, none the less killer track

Awesome guys thanks. And yes it will be downloadable after they Seven Lions Remix competition is over. Although I am not entered I want to respect that fact. I can send anyone who wants it PMs with dl links to remind you.

Cheers!
