I've 'finished' a new track that I think is pretty good, but I'm not exactly my harshest critic. So check it out and let me know what you think needs fixing. I know what I dislike about it but I'll see if you guys notice them first.

download me

Thanks for listening.

It's good once it gets going at the end there. You should start off like that.

You should put some sounds effects into it. It sounds very plain without them.

Nice, man.

I like the dirty bassline.
The only thing I can think of is to bring that bassline up in the mix a little...make it more prominent. Especially when your other riff at the end kicks in.

Any suggestions for types of sounds? Like sweeps or little bleeps and blips?

Yeah, sweeps and things like that. I usually like to work with the sounds that I already have in the track. For example I put a very long reverb on the theme sound, record only the reverb, reverse it, and use it as an effect. I can modulate the volume on it to use it as a fade in. I also do crazy stuff with the cutoff, or even put a phaser and flanger on it. Try it!

are you handing out copies of this on cd? I want one. I'm sure there are lots of this and that you can do to it, but I like simpler stuff cause they blend in a lot easier with other tracks when I'm playing. Too much makes it too messy sounding for me.

Yeah, I could send you a hard copy if you like. PM and we can hook up sometime or I could mail it to you or whatever. I'm flexible.


Chiclet- right click on the link and click save target as. Should only take a couple of minutes to download even on dial up.

Personally I think the track has good timing and the fills are at the right places. However I do think the sounds you bring in towards the middle tend to totally take away from the track and show lack of direction. Best idea IMHO is to stick with a simple concept, or groove, then work it over. You could have added simple drum changes in the ways of alternating and introducing another percussion sound. Once you have the groove dont try and head off in another direction.

Either way good start.

here is my two cents. The bass is very quite in the mix, i would bring that up a bit.

the hard blip sound playing 8ths needs to be compressed as well as the hi hats cym. I would rely crunch them with fast attack and decay to bring up the quite bits. Some more attack on the kick would be nice.

um, i like the overall feel of the track but i think i would bring the lead sound in close to the start and take it out somewhere in the middle.

A pinch of reverb or delay on some of the sounds that sit in the midrange would add some depth. as well as filtering the bass sound with a lpf would help keep my attention.

I like the leed and would leave it as it is.

hope this info is of some use to you.
