    great surface noise. drums are nice and clear, really quality stuff.

    I would do a diff filter on the bline when it's pitched up in the intro, sounds cheese and belies the real bass --

    ostinato-type-thing with the lowpass oscillating fits well with the piano and vocals.

    the vocals that come in @ 2:24 are in the wrong key, maybe sort that out

    kinda weird when you improvise with the pitch on the bline arond 2:50 though. XP

    good progression and good tune! any chance for a remix? ;)

    really good vibe with this tune proper feeling it the only thing I'd change is maybe the LFO on the b line - seems to be quite off timing wise sometimes but i suppose that could just be personal taste - bar that its all good to me - congrats

    Really like this *State!
    It's Rollin mate!

    Only crit is that the vocals seem a bit 'buried' in the mix. could be a bit 'shinier' maybe (5-8khz)

    Where did you get the vocal from? Rather like it :)

    I like the buildup in the intro, the vocals are ok, the only thing for me is that the bassline could have some more power to them. What software do you use for your beats?

    Ive been listening to this tune so many dam times, its hard to judge whats 'right' for it. Cheers for raising your points tho, it will help.

    I have been in two minds about the LFO, in the end i opted for an offbeat LFO. Cheers man.

    Ta mate. Yeah i wacked a filter on the vox and quite liked the effect so i left it, got some fine tuning ahead i think.


    Thanks for the comment mate, I was doubting it last nite when "mastered" it through headphones.



    Thanks all for the feedback, its always handy!

    then at the very least double-check the vocals being in the wrong key @ the time I pointed out ;)

    Nice tune. Like the bass/lfo business. Drums are nice and shuffly.

    Ta mate.

    I shit myself earlier... got home from work switched my pc on and got something worse than the "blue screen of death", it was making loud clicking noises and wouldnt boot up, i ended up blasting all the dust out of it with campressed air, disconnecting then reconnecting some of the related wires. In the end i had to boot it manualy which was a bit of a guessing game... but paid off. NOT taking anymore chances, its time to back everything up! lol.

    LOL.

    The tune is finished now, i think ive finished all the arrangments. I have done a few mastering processes for my reverbnation profile but still have the original mix for when i get it mastered by some engineers.

    I feel a bit stupid bumping this, but... the tune should respond better than before, it should have a fuller low end and is properly limited now.

    You might actually be able to buy it (digital) in the near future mate, I'll let you know when! cheers.

    The tune isnt pressed mate, if you can get some more people that would buy it i could sort something out.:thumbsup:
