oh now you think the sub needs a boost... bitch Tongue


Well, the sub is a really low frequency, and I guess my monitors were making some false compression, because it sounded a lot louder than it actually is. I took a look at the frequency spectrum analysis and the sub freq's could definitely be boosted.

I still llike the bassline, it reminds me of someone playing some really really big drums, and then on every fourth bar I throw in a little sliding bass with a little attitude. If anything I might keep the punchy, distorted sub stabs on the first and third bars, and mix it up for the second and fourth, throwing in a little break every eighth bar.

Thanks to everyone for the input, it's really helping.

My computer is FUCKED at the moment, and it'll take a little while before I get my sound software up and running again. I'm working on it though.

My lunch break is over, so BACK TO WORK!!!

If you can't hear the bass, your speakers don't go low enough. There's definitely bass there, it's really low. If you listen to it on a club system or on some woofers, you'll be cleaning the mess out of your pants. Tongue

Classic bad bwoy glock routine. The vocal samples could use a little damage. Where are you from? This definitely sounds like some inner-city east-coast damage. The bass definitely needs to be louder. You have so many sounds all at once, I think a lot of them need to be fine-tuned in order to get them all to sit together. Obviously a track like this REQUIRES ridiculous distortion, but you can distort individual sounds without distorting the mastering. This is definitely my kind of shit. The double bd hit followed by snares on every 1 1/2 beat has been one of my favs since I first discovered it. This is definitely a very good track, the emotions are dark and the rhythm is violent. The sound fx changeups are perfect. Keep it up man, this is "The Violent Sound"


Dude, those vocals could definitely use some pitch shifting. Try this, in an audio editor, open two instances of the file, pitch stretch one down by an octave, maintaining the length. Copy it, paste it over the other, and you get a nice garbled effect. Waves makes a really nice VST called 6-voice pitch shift, which has some nice presets for mangling vocals, try some of those lightly layered underneath the original, maybe with a little reverb to set them apart. Very evil, very demonic. You could even keep it the same, but put a light LFO on a bit crusher, giving you a swirling crackling sound on top of the vocals.

Any way you sort it though, those vocals would make me pee in my pants if they had a little more grunge to them.

It's like that with every single business out there. You have to take the risk before you can reap the benefits.

I'm not exactly sure how it works in Europe, but over here in America it's (kinda) cheap, it's (kinda) quick, and (kinda) painless (except the taxes that the government rapes out of your sphincter).

All you have to do is get publishing authority from an organization like EMI, MPA, RIAA, NARM any of these would work. Once you get the ability to publish your compositions, you have to contact a distributor, like KOCH if you want to distribute CD's, IODA if you want to distribute digitally. There's tons of fees involved, and until you actually look into it for yourself, you're going to be clueless. You have to just get into it for yourself. Go to a search engine and start searching for publishing, distribution, shit....."how to start a record label" might even work. Suprisingly, my friend, it's cheaper, easier, and less time consuming to get another record label to publish your music for you. They take some of your money, but you spend hardly anything to start up. People usually open up publishing companies and start making distribution deals because they want to provide that service for other people, not because they want their own music on the market.

If you want your music on the market.....just put it there. You have to contact people, you have to reach out. You can't expect shit to come to you. Go to somewhere like IODA, and see what it would take to get your music published through another company and how much it would take to start distributing it digitally.

Start making contacts man. Start sending e-mails, what's the worst that can happen, they say "fuck off?" So what! That's just one less person you have to deal with.

Someone mentioned a lawyer, but a lawyer should always be doubled with an accountant. Find a cheap CPA who can handle your expenses and help push your influence in the right directions. Aside from getting your comp's published and copywritten, you're going to need someone to guide you in the right direction financially, (unless you're seriously good with your own money.)

I don't know man, research, research research. Unless you go to The Berkely School of Music for Music Business, you're just going to have to go it on your own.

I suppose that's the best advice I could offer.

I've just about given up the amen......completely. I prefer to take individual drum sounds and make my own loops with them. Not only is it harder, more satisfying, and more individual, it also gives you more freedom over the "sound" of the break. I will admit though, I like to sneak in the high end of some crashing amens everynow and then just to heighten a breakdown or raise a drop a bit.



Edit: I still fucking love it though.

Just wait until you guys hear my remix.

Muahahahahaha Big Grin Huh *cough*

As for your version Surya, I was loving it. I'm not a big fan of clownstep, but you make it kinda rough, so I'm able to enjoy it. Can't say much about the structure, but the engineering is a bit off. You said you haven't eq'ed it, and you can tell.

Can't wait to see the outcome of the remix compo!

Haha, I'm sorry.......but Pendulum is fucking talented. You can tell a lot of work went into this remix. And they're drum programming is phenomenal. I seriously doubt anyone here could make a better remix. Now, I'm not a big fan of pendulum, they use the same sounds over and over again and are getting a bit tired in my mind, but that doesn't change the fact that they are talented at what they do.

'Nuff said.

Video was cool, I fucking love the original song, and if someone can bring it back and make it faster and more up to date, then more power to them.

spudleyq - Zipper Nails (Unfinished) 06-12-2005 17:23 Forum: Tunes


Please check out my new track 'Zipper Nails (Unfinished)' and post your comments here!!!

This song is extremely unfinished. I'm getting more and more confident about my mixdowns and my synthesizing. I'd really like some feedback on how good you guys think the sound quality is. I'm hoping to finish this track soon, and hopefully seeing about where I can take it to get it released. Any suggestions on any labels that might want some crappity crap like this would be great.

This song was made with FL Studio 5...so don't ever knock that program.

Its a shame because this started out really well but the drop just doesnt sound right to me. I just dont like the bass line, the tone is nice but its just a bit dull.
The production quality is really good and sounds really clear but. I think the mood of the tune is confused. The intro is definately dark and moody but, once its droppred, this is lost and the tune takes on a more euphorical vibe which is good but sounds out of context with the intro.
It is nice and energetic and a good bass sound, but some of the sounds seem a bit odd to me. The sort of arpegiated thing going on seems out of context again. I think that you should try to maintain the mood created in the intro from where left off.
Dont get me wrong on this, I like the tune and it sounds great, the production is superb. It just sounds like you started off trying something a little different which sounds cool but by the drop you go back to familiar ground.
7/10


The mood is not confused, and since I didn't explain it, it would appear as though you might be slightly confused. I shall clear things up for you.

Beginning = thoughts about cutting yourself
Drop = Actually cutting yourself

The beginning is dark, invokes deep and disturbing vibes and sensations, which naturally builds up and increases until that little voice in your head comes out and says, "What the FUCK is this?!" The following portions of the song are the actual cutting, the raw, unadulterated passion involved in such an act. Pure power, pure bass, and pure calamity careening their way through a seemingly random placement of noises.

Things will only get worse from there, and I plan on slowing the whole song down for the ending, imitating the actual loss of life.

I personally think the song holds true character, never loses its feeling(s), and I had no idea what you meant by this, but appreciate your review none the less.

Rock on little buddy, and don't let the man get you down. Bigup

6/10

cheers


What do you mean by a better sound quality version? The MP3 is a 256 I believe, which is rather high quality for a preview.

Now, you say it needs work in compressing, ballancing and eqing, and I was just wondering, since you seem to know, which parts exactly need compression, which parts need eqing, and what is unbalanced. I only ask because I'd like to know. You seem like you would be able to help me make this song sound a lot better, and that's what I'm striving for. I greatly appreciate the fact that you wish to help, but telling me that things need eqing without telling me what things need eqing is just confusing, and not very helpful in the long run. I need to know if you mean the highs on the drums aren't loud enough, or if the mids on the vocals are overpowering. The bass is eq'ed rather well, I'm sure the drums could use some work though, and I know the arpeggiated lead might sound a bit too wide on stereo, but these are the things that I need to know about.

Thanks for all the listens badboyz!
