    another tune in my usual sort of drum and bass style, called great moments

    its deep and a little bit gritty, i think the drums are sounding quite nice on this one, any suggestions for improvement would be nice

    pretty sick, love the hats and the switch up with the reverbed/chorus bass sound or fx whatever it is. just not overly keen on the original melody of the bass, i think the sounds you have got a lot of potential for a more evil sounding melody. the switch up is where its at. nice!

    cheers for the positive feedback guys, i think i may try a different melody to the b-line at some point in the track, then when it drops into the rolling melody it might have nice effect..

    production wise is it up to scratch, i think i'm nearly getting there now :) its taken some time lol

    i use cubase with NI plug ins, but i mainly just use reaktor, kontakt and absynth, i would be up for a collab though i have never done it before so i wouldnt really know where to start.. what do you send, in what format etc???

    bassline is PHAT, love it, the whole thing rolls nicely, although i felt the precussion was a bit weak, soundscape is tasty

    Yeah, sounding clean and sharp. I can't really fault it apart from maybe you need to change up the bassline a bit more.

    the sound your after mate, use a standard reese, add lfo to the lp filter, add some portamento, distort it, resample into your nn19 or whatever the sampler is in reason now, filter it distort it just fuck about till you get it sounding nice, adding pitch shift etc or sweeeping filters all help,

    i have no set way to making sounds, its kinda serendipitous sometimes
