Wow, the production value is great on this one!
I have some idea's for improvement though.
First of all i think the snare and kick could be a little harder as in less chorus and maybe maximize/expand it a little more.
Second the drop comes really quickly but i think it would be better if you'd kept the tension in the bridge a little longer and tighter.
These are all my opinions though, i'm not telling you what to do since art is totally up to the creator, but thought those things would be neat!
Send this to the guys at Gearbox and tell them they SHOULD use this as another badass freaking song for the new Duke Nukem Forever game! Even if that means they need to delay it for about another month!
In all seriousness i can't think of a way to improve this honestly! Great production. Great Mastering.
It's a pretty good start.
I don't know if you do it yet but i'd checkout some vids if i where you about automation it's pretty simple when you find out how.
But that way you can make the drop way smoother/harder. since you can make a pad go up in PWM or Distortion or whatever really.
Only thing i'm missing..
Are a bunch of heavy metal guitars at some parts like from: 1:30 till: 1:56.
Apart from that, awesome job!
Guitars? I don't think it's a good idea.
I don't see it.
Apart from you using a couple of his samples i don't see how this is a joke to Skrillex, The guy is pretty fuckin good in making the style of dubstep he's doing now.
Also this song had no structure or setup at all it was just random glitching and bitcrushed voices.
Again i don't see the joke.
> this song had no structure or setup at all it was just random glitching and bitcrushed voices.
> i don't see the joke.
Orly now? And for the record I used no samples from Skrillex. The "YES OMG" is from the youtube cup stacking girl. If you thought I used a couple Skrillex samples then I did my job correctly.
Hmm It has potential.
It has some potential but the first thing i noticed where some of the drum samples being a bit basic. Maybe different sounding samples.
Second thing wich is an absolute NO in music is that i heared noise, wich means it was gained too much. Try lowering your samples/vst's/effects.
And one thing on the side, the heavy bass drop wasn't that heavy but that's always something to work on later!
I hope i could help you a bit.
Well, thank you for the tips! If you listen to my new song, I've actually been working on my mastering. There is a little bit of static still, but not nearly as much. By the time I release my EP, I believe I'll have all of these problems solved. Any tips on bass drops that you could give me?
SICK SICK SICK SICK!!!!
This is so far one of the best dubstep songs on Newgrounds, great quality production that i myself are really jealous off! So good job on that.
Also I'm loving some of the breaks. Samples are great aswell.
Definitely a song i'll be listening to when working!
It has something of Skism aswell. You prolly already know him (but if you don't check him out!)
Oh btw where's that sample from ? it sounds really familiar but i can't get my finger on it.
Anyway's please make more dubstep songs like this!
Best on Newgrouds? I'm flattered. Glad you liked this song. The samples were ripped from a random documentary video I found online about volcanoes (then they were slowed slightly for effect).
I love this, for an intro that is. I know not every dubstep song needs heavy dubbass but this one does imo. I don't know if you're planning on adding a heavier part but if not can i please have the fruity file so i can remix this with some sick bass ??
If not than no hard feelings but i just have the feeling this could be something very Epic!
I'm probably the only one but...
Don't get me wrong i've had the other one on my music player for so long now and i loved the heavy bass wobbles.
This was actually of all dubstep my favourite dubstep song, Above all other actuall dubstep producers (Excision, Flux, Cookie Monster, Datsik Etc,)
And when this got remastered i thought to myself; "Woah this must be even sicker than i thought. So i listened and everything sounded better until 0:38 Where the bass comes in. I was very dissappointed. I expected the bass to be heavier AND nastier but instead they became more, clean and not heavy at all.
They wobbles now just feel empty to me.
I still love this song but the first one still sounds better to me. I hope i could just show you with this comment that i'm not ranting this song or you at all.
But just giving a listeners opinion!
Ay, you're not the only person; a lot of people have (and I haven't had to tell people "I GOT THE MEMO ALREADY!" in a while lol). What I was trying to do was get my bass to sound more professional, but in the process of sidechaining, I actually caused my bass to thin out. I still don't think it's as thin as people claim, but I can definitely tell it's thinner than the original. There's a lot I would change about this number...which is why I want to recreate it from scratch with what I know now. It's amazing how quickly and how fast I've changed. If you heard what I was producing now, you'd fall over! ;)
And P.S. I am an actual dubstep producer...just lettin you know to be careful how you phrase things. I'm not pro (*yet), but I definitely still produce! ;)
Awesome is all i can say!
And it reminded me of Datsik - Nuke Em! But more awesome!
