not bad man. i remember hearing the first take, but i can't pull the sound of it right off the top of my head to compare them. still a good tune, even for an amen based track. only thing that kind of bugged me was the amen sounded too unmodified. what i mean is the actual sound of it, not so much the programming of the break. you got some good variations in the break, but i would have liked maybe a dirtier sound to it. maybe layered up with some other subtle snares or kicks, just to keep it a bit different, but know it's amen. hope that makes sense?

as for the rest of the track, i'm really diggin' it. your atmospheres are great and the stuttering here and there is a nice touch. overall, it's a good one man. just a few little things that i would have liked different, but still good. Bigup

was kinda wishing the vocal samples were a little louder in the beginning. i kept trying to kick up the volume to hear what he was saying. drop seemed a little so-so. i was hoping for something a little harder and more dramatical. it was just kinda like right into it. Not a huge fan myself on the drums sequencing but i guess that's more just personal preference. bassline seems a tad dull. it just kinda went and went without much changeup. overall, it wasn't a mind blower for me. it's got some good points tho. i like they synth work. does actually sound cool. but overall it just seems to be lacking vibe for me that would get my head noddin and body bouncin'. maybe that wasn't the original intention but even the atmosphere just gets a little repetitive. good attempt overall between you two.

sounds like you're onto something good here. i'm not a huge listener of breaks but this one kinda caught me with it's potential. bassline distortion seems a tad overbearing though, swallowing up the beats. like everything is clashing as BD said. but i'm sur eit could all get sorted in the final mixdown. keep it going though and bring it back with better levels.

Really good tune. Nice intro, in a very dub style, misterious and dark. The rythm is a little repetitive and I think it would be better in a faster tempo. That's a short demo, so I'd like to hear the whole tune to give a more accurate opinion. Maybe a second part joined by a bridge could improve it. And after that, back to the first part again.
I'd like to know how was it maked. Only samples?

The FX are very well used, nice delays and good reverberation.

Very good feedback, at the end.



thanks kram for your feedback. to answer your question about the track being only samples, it's yes and no. the whole track was done in FL studio. the main bassline was one i made using pro-53, then exported out as a WAV, modified in soundforge, then brought back in and modified a little more with FL plugins. so the bassline is not a snipped sample from somewhere. the bass stabs were done using 808 kick drums, with a sub layer and high passed distorted layer, so there's actually 2 different bass kick layers. the drums are actually like 3 different breaks layered and some extra snares layered in, sliced up in FL and then reprogrammed from what they were originally like. percussions were programmed with one shots, like bongos and cymbals.

some sounds were samples that i actually did some looping, pitch bending and FX on to make them different. so it's kinda like a little bit of everything to get the result i wanted. i'm usually one that prefers to program all my breaks from scratch, or if I use a a break already made, I like to cut it up and reprogram it and layer it to make it something new.

the tempo was a toss up for me. i tried from 170-175 and it just didn't flow right for me. it took me a few days just to feel out the tempo alone. so i ended up taking it down to 165 which felt pretty natural,but that was just me.

the rest is pretty obvious with me doing my own vocals and whatnot. hope that answered your questions.

Finally done with this tune and ready to roll. Been a fun tune to make, but I'm sure it may not be everyone's cup of tea. Fun either way.

sick track moxygen! thanks for pointing that to me. think i might try that for future tracks. this tracks actually already finished but i'll see maybe for my next one trying stuff like that. i guess i could have done something a little more interesting with the beats. but guess live and learn. thanks for all your feedback!

thanks everyone for the listens so far. it's still got a ways to go i think yet. i know it still has some muffly issues but i'll get that sorted. i think it was just my encoding cuz the original file sounds a lot more clear.

Please check out my new track 'Jungle Snipa - Kill 'em With The Bassline (short Demo)' and post your comments here!

ahhhh, i really was really fighting the urge to drop a little preview of this, but i couldn't help myself. sorry i had to make it so short, but really don't want to give away too much yet, but so far, this is the main part thats finished. still got other things i'm working on. eq'ing is still bad. haven't sorted that out yet.
this is my next attempt at aiming for a bassline driven track, seeing as how my last track fell short in that dept. so i wanted something dark, hard, and full of bass. so, here's what i've got.

shit man, this was going soo damn well until that bassline dropped in then it just swallowed everything up(grrrr). damn, this is right up my alley with the sub bass, breaks, and everything. i like how you kept it simple, not overdoing it with shit loads of sounds and fx and total mayhem. not even sure i'd say anything about the sidechaining bit. i like it the way it is, but it's preference i guess.

variations aren't even really an issue here as i'm vibin' more on the bass than anything, but hell, why not chuck in a few extra breaks to break it up a bit i guess.

for real man, fix this puppy up and you got a real bad ass track. please up another copy of this if you don't mind. Listen

not bad simage. title was a bit misleading though. being named adrenaline i was expecting something a little stronger than this. but it's alright. some minor things i'll point out wrong here, that are maybe more preference than right or wrong, but the bassline is really lacking. i had to really pump up the bass to catch a good feel of it. but that may also be due to the fact some of the synth lines are a bit too loud. when i really put the volume up, them synths are just really high. the drums also seem to get a little lost in the synths too. maybe bringing down the synths, up the bass a bit more, and get some more beef on the drums, and it should sound better. but like i said, it could be more of a preference thing.

also, the track seemed a little short and incomplete. i noticed it didn't say it was a preview but it just feels short of feeling complete. seems it really could use a better outro. it was going then just dropped out. a little unexpected.

your choice of sounds aren't too bad, just some minor things that i would have liked to hear differently to catch a better experience.

nice one uberchile! i remember hearing the original and have to agree the mixdown is much better. like a huge difference. big thing right off the bat is the snare is less ear piercing. i think gregg tapped a lot of good points so i won't hit those points again.

levels ar emuch better all the way around. seems everything is working together better rather than against each other. still seems you got some good room for more bass.

really diggin' that breakdown about 3:50. that was a nice changeup. don't even remember that one from the preview, so it was a nice addition.

honestly, the only thing i found rather off was the panning bass, which if it was more subtle and less frequent it wouldn't have been so bad. sitting here with headphones on it was even more distracting, like i could find myself sitting here focusing on that sound following it with my eyes and being drawn away from the tune itself.

but aside from the minor picks, this really sounds so much better than the last and is a solid track. great job! Bigup

intro sounds nice. i like them synths you used, but the downer for me was when the drop came in. the drums sound kinda lifeless. like battledrone said, maybe layering up another break or just some ghost hats or something to give them a little more life. the breaks actually sound kinda too dry as well. maybe subtle saturation on them would help too.

synths are the strong point. they do seem kinda quiet compared to the drums though. maybe bringing them up front more would give the drums a different feel to.

not too shabby overall but really could use some more work to make it even more enjoyable to listen to.

thanks galeforce. yeah, originally the bass was what i wanted to be the main feature. i think i fell pretty short in that and should have maybe strived for a bigger bass sound. think i got a little side tracked as i got into it and lost sight of what i was originally intending. but thanks for pointing that out. i'm still feeling the potential in this one, but i think once i give my ears some time off this one, i'll go back to the original project and rebuild the sound again. it's got issues, i just need to come back to it with fresh ears. been hearing it to many times so far.

yeah, bad part is there's so many people joining this site everyday so it even could be the new people registering. either way, in the end, i'm a believer we shouldn't be doing this just for the votes. we do it cuz we love it. there's always someone out there musically impossible to please. if you like it, thats what should count, so don't let it discourage you from uppin' more tunes.

hey man, had a listen to this a few times actually and took me a bit to get back with you. i definitely wouldn't say it deserves a 2 exactly, especially without an explanation, but there are a few things i would have liked to have heard. one thing i can say i would have liked to have heard was a delay on that vocal sample . i think it would give it better flow. like echo the "do it" part of it or something like that. maybe even a tich of reverb just so the sample doesn't just dead cut out like it did.

distortions are pretty nice too. unfortunately i can't have a go on the monitors with this right now, so i can't really comment on the whole 'impact' of the track. basslines sound descent on the phones tho.

maybe as a note though, i would have liked some more change for the second part of the track, after the break. like some changeups in the breaks or introduce some slightly different basses into the mix. seems like it was gonna go full blown, but didn't go as far as i would have really hoped it would. i was just waiting for some mashing shit to go down after the break.

all in all, it's a good one, but could be improved in some areas, well, to me anyways. but as with any track, there's 'always' something that could be better. but again, good track! Bigup
