cool take on the original. also one of my fav Lovebirds tracks.
here's my ideas.
that swelling chord that filters completely out @ 2:32, have it filter back in to full again with the other rezzy chord supporting it. for the 2nd break too, perhaps.
2:40 is a little sharp on the re-entry of the beat. i think its the high freqs of the crash sweep and the kick boosting each other.
also, after that point at 2:40 before the bongos come in, its a little boring with just the same bass pattern repeating. wondering how it might sound changed up on the 4th measure or maybe add a small amount of delay to the bass to fill in a little bit of rhythm during the rests between the patterns
thanks sam. i actually got a pm from basti via soundcloud about an hour ago.. i guess he liked this track and the knee deep one i did i'm serious.
anyways, the swelling chord- i can't help the filter on that. the synth has an automated filter and i don't know how to automate it differently. i personally don't even like how the chord sounds, i might replace it with something else. it's the main element that sucks the most in the track, imo- all due to lack of experience and expertise at production.
2:40 was meant to be a "big" kick-in back to the main groove. that's the part where people are supposed to go "WHOO!" and bob their heads/breakdance/do the sprinkler/etc. i suppose i could fuck with the hi eq's a bit if it sounds too "sharp" on the ears..
the "boringness" after the first break was done on purpose as well. i wanted near-silence between phrases. that's why i programmed that hats how i did, so very little played during the 4th beat of each measure, therefore accentuating the first beat of every measure, again trying to go for the "WHOO!!" effect. i think during home listening it doesn't do much, but played out in the right setting i think it'll get people's asses shakin'. i was actually thinking about lowering the volume between the 4th and 1st measures of each phrase post-production to *really* accentuate the 1st beat. i suppose we'll have to differ in personal preference there.
sam i could use some pointers in automation if you have any experience with the filters built in to FL. i really, really appreciate the advice, bro.
