Edit: you act as if i like working out of key. It was only a mistake so fuck off.


Why is production speed important to you, rather than ensuring that the song isn't terrible? You're focusing on things which will guarantee you won't improve musically - as I said, it's up to you whether you care about the musical side of things or not - there are plenty of non - musical genres.

Your "it was only a mistake" comment concerns me the most.

Accidentally leaving a filter automated in a certain position is a "mistake". Accidentally cutting off a reverb tail is a "mistake".

Not being able to tell that your songs are totally out of key? Thinking that that's a small problem which is easily fixed? That's a fundamental issue, that's something you should have worked out before you started producing music.

You can choose to get angry and start swearing at me, that's your choice. You can also choose to work out what you want to do musically (such as writing your own music rather than using loops) and whether you're prepared to put in the time to learn how to do that.

One tip - making music, accepting criticism, is all much easier when you kill off your ego. Forget your idea of "being a fantastic producer" and focus only on making fantastic music.

I think the snare needs to be turned up some, and the sub bass might be a little too low (so maybe the whole track needs to come up a few notes). Also, I think it needs more elements, or a change up in the structure so it isn't too repetitive.





I always like listening to your tracks. Some really high quality production work. As long as this one continues to build and is structured right it should be a good techno track.

--

I don't think many active members listen to or produce much 'house' music on Tranceaddict, but any advice on this track is appreciated. I have been watching a lot of tutorials and reading about the technical side of production lately, with a focus on synth creation and selection, as I think it has been my biggest weakness since I started producing. I used a tutorial to make the synth playing at the beginning on Synth1, a freeware synth. Also, I used a tutorial to make the bass at the climax, a very common bass I have tried to make many times. This starts at the second breakdown and goes through the second climax and into the outro.

EVO - really decent techno that. I'd like to hear some more rapid closed hats bang in from about 1.20.

It just needs now something clearly defined and distinctive to take it from good techno background to a track with a memorable personality. Excellent bass, beats and groove.

Caleb - sounding very commercial and yes thats the bass sound I hear often so well done.
That lead (the second synth I hear) - some notes really jump out at me so I think it could use some taming.

@caleb - yes the technical side is important, i found that when my production/mixing skills increased i was able to implement my ideas better - just be careful not to get too bogged down on the technical side and lose sight of the overall picture

I'd like a copy of this if poss mate.

Another suggestion if you don't mind. The kick is not quite embedded enough (for my taste anyway). I would suggest you run it through a room / space reverb, then remove some lows, then turn that into a smaple and layer it with the existing kick (which may as a result have to be slightly quieter perhaps). Make sure you get the right verb as this can make a critical difference. I'd use a convolution type - and really fuck about with the settings.

The image I have in mind when making techno kicks is that of some subterreanean dance basement a bit like the first 'dungeon' room in SAW 1. Helps me feel my way better.

Did you make the bass yourself? It's as good a techno bass as is possible.


STEWART - that synth from 3 mins is not distinctive nor dirty enough for this track.
Bass is a bit dry and souless. Maybe make a copy that has some roomy dirty automated verb on some of the notes to inject propa flava!
A now and again spoken voice stab with masses of verb and delay would really lift this you know.

Stewart- Yogo --> I like how it sounds,reminds me of Dj Rolando - Jaguar a bit. What needs some work is the mixdown, hats are too loud/need more variety, snare should be different and needs more volume. Bass is a little muddy too, should be easy to make this a great track.

Caleb --->Sounds neat, not very big difference with the common beatport releases but i don't like this kind of tracks nor i like yours sorry this electrohouse genre sounds very cheap to me but i like the last seconds when you bring up a melody.

Evo8----> Very good track indeed, maybe the kick needs a bit of clip,but sounds raw and industrial as i love it.
