    Hi all,

    I'm Tim, a new member here. I have made the following DrumStep style song. I also tried to add some 80's inspired drums to it. Please let me know of any feedback.



    I've also had a go at an Electro-house song as well:



    Cheers,
    Tim

    Hi Tim,
    This song is very rock and roll meets skillex. I found it to be very annoying with all the high pitches. My opinion aside, the song was interesting and you have some good ideas floating around in there. Your song was dynamic also. One thing That can be improved upon is your mix. The mix was not terrible but not that good either.

    hopefully the man responds, first posters are always finnicky.

    but i agree with IV, drums need work, more punch and presnsence throught the mix imo

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the advice. None of my friends like this music so its hard to get proper advice. I'm working on a new track now so I'll pay some more attention to the mix and drums.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Mmm there's a lot of noise in here! Make some EQ adjustments ;)
    Also the drums are really far back in the mix, maybe clean that up a bit! (Compressors, level adjustments etc)
