Okay here’s some feedback on a new light.
That little percussion is sick, I dig this but that snare dosent fit it and it feels like the strings are pushed back hellah. I’m still enjoying the style, the bass sounds alright but I feel like it lacks a little.
Could just be me.
The vocals are difficult af to hear
Do you duck around with multi band compression? Or know how to split a signal into mids and sides?
Something I’ve started to do to help with clutter ness and to have a certain element real prominent in order for it to be the focus is to modulate the mids out of anything you don’t want to be front and center and modulate whatever instrument you want to have as the lead to be. then modulate it out and blend it back with whatever you want to stand front and center. Also, phasing and phase flipping can really add a layer. Seems like that realm is kind of empty.
I love that synth, it’s so dope. So spacey.
I really dig your style, it’s unique and I can hear this turning into somethingdope.
I gave you a follow, my name on there is Nazzo.
Feel free to message me.
You have a nice natural flow.
On this second track, postal; the piano is nice but it sounds so midi that it’s kind of boring and repetitive. Really fluctuate with the velocity of certain notes, and the lead synth I feel like needs some tuning or creative work because the drop seemed a little lacking in energy, and off key.
Foreal tho, keep at it. This is such a bitch to get the hang of, but after that learning curve, it’s so damn deep and exploitable. And one more thing, don’t ever stop with this style you have. You have originality, needs much work but it is original af. Espically with this scene being so over statuettes with people climbing over each other trying to sound the same.
Foreal, keep in touch. I really want to teach you somethings!!!
Much love yo!!!
(And the velocity also applies to percussion imo because the high hats sound stale.)
Wow thanks a lot for these words! These are some really good tips that I'm definitly going to look into. It's very inspiring to hear that you liked my stuff, I'm going to make more for sure!
Just found your track, I think it sounds dope! Really cool unique style! The guitars that are in there sound somewhat artificial at some places though Don't get me wrong, they don't sound like shit. It's just that especially when they are one of the only things playing you can hear that it's a bit artificial, but that's something incredibly difficult to get right. Ideally you'd record it in a proper studio with a high end guitar+amp+mic, but that's a bit hard to get. I don't know how you're recording guitars now, but I discovered that a hardware distortion really beats plugin any time for guitars. Also a nice cab sim either hardware or software makes it sound a lot closer to the real deal.
First time playing around with a recording of a guitar.(:
Imah check your stuff out now to!
The track can't be found :( are you sure this is the right link?
Crazy that someone is doing this!!
Cool sounding track! It does feel like you're holding back on the vocals. Try to give it a bit more power/volume, your music will thank you for it. Very chill beat, nice to chill out to!
I will appreciate it if you will check out my beat
Beat 52 by RIZA DORON on #SoundCloud
That's a very hard hitting beat! The kick is a bit too much to my taste though. I think the effect you want can still be reached with a bit less distortion. Dialing back the kick distorting will also make the rest of the song nicer to listen to because it'll make you less distracted by the kick.
I first released my first track and if someone can give me some feedback it would be highly apreciated. Also I am looking for future collaborations I\`ve got many songs to come and I am looking for talented songwriters and vocalist.
Thank you and keep being creative
Your idea of song is really nice! From what I ve heard I would recommend getting more control on the high end. It is quite sibilant.
Cool sounding track! You're mixing very well already. I'd spent a bit more time on the arrangement though. You're really milking that lead for all it's got. If there is just a small amount more variation the track becomes a lot more engaging to listen to.
Gonna check it yours asap.
I'm really digging the strings in this. When the strings come in it's a bit sudden though. It seems like the first part doesn't really even have to be there. It's very moviesque, could be a soundtrack for something very well!
Thank you! And I agree with you. I've got some improving to do. 😊
Yeah I’m just using a reg 1/4inch cable.
Definitely going to try out the mic
And amp combo next
Maybe record both at the same time?
This has been a whole new Avenue I’ve been exploring.
Thanks for the listen!
Having something like a pedal to run your guitar through instead of just straight to interface can also change thing around a lot! I'm really lucky by having a friend that makes pedals, but you could get a second hand od/dist pedal for not too much. Also, if you're going down the road of micing an amp, I always tend to underestimate just how much an effect mic placement has. You can change the tone of your recording so much just by moving the mic a bit around. The best way to find the right placement is just moving the mic from as close as it gets to a bit farther and also to the sides.
Ayeeee. Ithank you!!!
How do you know so much of recording?
I've been in metal bands forever, and this is my attempt at branching away from high gain distortion and insane double kicks.
This is a very nice chilled out track! One thing I notice is that the snare sounds a tad artificial. Especially near the beginning with the snare fills. I would use a bit more variation in velocity and timing there. You do seem to change the snare velocity more near the end, also do that in the beginning! I think it would would fit the song better if the snares that are not on the 'snare beat' are a bit softer.
Thank you very much for the feedback.
I am definitely going to sit and play with the snare hits tonight thanks for the insight!
Enjoying this one! Recon you can get away with more reverb on some of the guitar parts but that's just my taste :)
I'm enjoying your track! I think the snare mightbe a lil dominating for me, I think it's really popping out in the stereo witdth but it's out there on it's own a bit. Im not sure where I'm remembering this from but I've always tried to aim for an upsidedown triangle with my stereo width, i.e the bass is mono and things can get more and more stereo as you go up the frequency spectrum. Keep it up!
A track of mine for you:
That's some good advice on stereo width, I've never really tought about it that way! Your track sounds very nicely put together. I like how you alternate between a rimshot and a snare. They fit together very well. I would maybe get a bit more creative with the arrangement. The break in the middle is really nice, bit in my opinion the first part is too similar to the second part. I think it would be nice to maybe remove some parts of some instruments in the first part so that when the second part kicks in it's more intense. But you can do this in many different ways, sometimes a very small change can go a long way.
Big up man, I've had the same feedback from others too, I needs to work more vatriation, big up for reviewing everyones tracks!
I’ll check out yours tonight as well. Thanks!
Sounds very much like a finished track! The mixing is really well done. I do feel like it could use some a bit more 'unexpected' elements in there at some points, but that might just be me overanalysing music.
Really enjoy the synths on your track!
It's really could how many different genres I come across here in the comments! I really used to listen to this kind of metal a lot. This song is really well done! The lyrics, sound of the singer, guitar sound, arrangement and mixing are all really good. The lead guitar in the beginning is a bit on the edge between of out of tune and having a cool effect. It works, but any more off tune would be too much. I think generally the transitions are really nice, but the first time the double bass kicks come in it's somewhat to sudden in my opinion. All in all a very nice track, you have a very nice chemistery of sounds that fit together.
Thanks man, and yeah I'd noticed about the lead guitar but I was hoping it would end up okay.
[Heres](https://soundcloud.com/bezvez/save-room) a Resident Evil lofi remix!
The drums fit the tune very well. It might be nice to have a bit more variation though. You could maybe at some parts remove a part of the drum beat or just have the leady sound playing or some effect. It all helps to make the track more interesting. You could maybe even incorporate the tempo changes of the original somewhere in the middle if there are no drums.
Thanks so much! And I agree it could totally use some variation, while making it i just stuck to making a simple repetitive drone song for the purpose of studying/working!
I listened to OP’s song. I liked it. It’s definitely original sounding. Didn’t remind me of anything already out, at least that I listen to. I could see myself listening to more of this. My only criticism would be to cut out maybe the first 30 seconds to trim it down so that the song starts closer to when the drums kick in.
Thanks for your feedback!
Very nice atmosphere! This is something that could very much benefit from a nice vocal melody. I think a good singer can come up with a nice melody over the track as it is now. Regarding the mixing I think the low end is a bit loud in comparison to the rest of the sounds. All in all a very nice track!
I really liked the song! I don’t listen to instrumental music that much, so my suggestion would be to add some vocals. Either way, it’s really nice and I mostly liked the outro.
Here is my track: [Loveudrunk](https://open.spotify.com/album/2pDl1VlcxkaDmlRYPeqGFN?si=VO6gqjvvRkmi1DS_DcDNow)
Your track is very engaging to listen to! I think the arrangement is really well done. The vocals need some work though. I think your voice is very nice and sound very good, but (not to be rude but it's just how it is) at some parts was out of tune. Because the vocals are very clean and upfront it's really noticable. It sounds like you are holding back when you are singing. I think that if you put a bit more power behind your voice when singing if would improve a lot, because you can reach these high notes!
Thank you so much for your time and for your nice words! It really means a lot. I know, one of the most common critiques I get is about my vocal-work. I really need to step it up in that department. I’ll try my best!
The singing is very nice! I get what you wanted to do with this track and it's working out very well. I only think the background noise is a tad too loud. It's a cool effect though, like when you're practicing with your band and the bass guitar is so loud the snare drum resonates with it. You can still get the same effect if it's a bit softer though, this also makes the instruments more clear.
Thank you for the feedback! And there's no band here. just me doing all the mixing and instrumentals but I do appreciate it. Thank you:)
Not my genre usually but it is pretty nice track. I wanted to hear more low end and punchier kick but maybe it is not necessary in that genre. Good work overall, keep it up!
Here is mine: [https://soundcloud.com/noisebadger/explore](https://soundcloud.com/noisebadger/explore)
Wow, I have to go drink a beer at the beach now! This really makes you move. I like how you have some percussive gritty noise in there. Your melodies are also very nice. Nothing too weird, but it's also definitly original. The voice sample fits in there nicely. I like how you didn't put too much emphasis on the sample. It really makes it better when it does come. I don't really have too much critique tbh, maybe the noise sweeps can be made a bit more interesting, but other that that it's just a very nice track. Keep doing what you're doing!
Waiting for your feedback man!
This is heavy! The guitar sounds are really well done. I'm really into this kind of music.
It needs vocals though. The instrumental rocks, but if someone with a great voice would be singing over it will become something epic!
Thank you so much!
Wait until we release the rest of the album! It will feature vocals!
I'd love to hear it!
[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27GnxzddUgs&list=UUmjJDUjbSj7SGkttyl0oCww](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27GnxzddUgs&list=UUmjJDUjbSj7SGkttyl0oCww) Im releasing a new song every day this year, here is where we are at! Thanks, I'll check you out when Im off later!
That's an ambitious challenge! Really good practice though. I like the beat in this song a lot, it's got a nice variety of interesting sounds. I also dig the dark twist at the end. It does feel like the track could use some more variation. Now the beat is the same almost throughout the whole song. It's not a huge problem because it's a cool beat, but the song could be a lot more engaging if you would for instance get the dark twist in there a lot earlier, expand on it a bit, and than get back to the beat.
This isn't the genre of music I listen to usually but from an objective standpoint, I don't hear anything wrong with it. Great drop, lots of dynamics. I like the stereo drums and the melody being mono (or closer to the mono field). Adds a nice uniqueness to it. I think the vocals could have been slightly louder if I was nitpicking but besides that this is dope!
I just dropped this track recently, let me know what you think about my rapping/mix!
[***Rose - i***](https://soundcloud.com/realrosemusic/i-1)
The rapping is really good! Your voice is very nice. I also really like these kinds of guitar sounds in rap songs. One thing that sounded a bit off was the kick rythm. I would change it around a bit. Maybe just removing the 4th kick or changing it slightly might be nice. Other that that killer song!
Thanks for your feedback :)
This is a song I wrote with my girlfriend that mixes her indie style voice with my hip hop background. I think it’s a really unique sound that’s worth listening too!
Let me know your thoughts and I’ll check out some of your songs!
It's a very cool combination of styles that works really well! Definitely a unique sound. It might be cool to have a part where it's both your and your girl's vocals at the same time / intertwined. I think your voices can really sound nice put together.
I typically make hip-hop beats, this time I tried to make something more Idm influenced. Hope you like it:)
Sounds cool! Definitely interesting sounds. It seems like the bass is a bit too loud though, I think reducing the volume a bit can open up more room for the other instruments. The rythm you put in there is really cool!
Thank you so much for your feedback! Will definitely take the bass volume into account next song :)
A track I made using nothing but sounds from an anime film I really adore. I'll check yours out as well!
This is so cool! It's actually a very nicely produced song. At first I wasn't too sure about the vocal samples, but it does work and fit the song well. It's also really cool how you put the video clips on the song!
I will most definitely check your stuff out after I'm done with homework and assignments and will edit my comment
I like the arrangement of the song! The drums with the delay effect are also nice and interesting. Compression on piano is cool! The piano instrument could be made a bit more "natural sounding" if you change the velocity of the piano notes so they differ more. Just listen to some songs with a lot of piano in there and you'll hear that there is really a lot of variation velocity-wise. Some notes can be really soft while others are louder!
Thanks a bunch! I also just checked out your song before commenting back, and I love it! I really did
I’m a producer, check it out.
Interesting idea. I like how you used a melody that is a bit different than mose songs. The hi hat does feel a bit artificial though. It might be nice to put some subtle effect on it.
This is the title track on our debut EP! We do the indie rock synth jazz surf pop kinda thing. Hope you enjoy!
Loving the mix of genres! The instruments fit together really nicely. I also like the singing. The synth solo at 2.07 is a bit weird. I think some peolpe might find it out of place. Personally I think it's a very cool twist though. It really makes you think: 'What is going on here?' instead of just passively listening to the song.
Basco - Skunk, let me know what you think
The voice in this is really cool! Fits the track nicely. In my opinion the snare needs some work though. It sounds a bit dry and maybe lacking in the low end. If you experiment a bit with snare eqing that might help the track a lot.
Cool dude, shot for the feedback, appreciated
Wow that's a lot of replies! I'll still check everything, but it might take some time before I got back to everyone. If you like my feedback you can post your new tracks to r/ListenToNewArtists as well. I'll be active in there to check your tunes!
Really cool! I like how it builds up energy throughout the whole song. I like the little vrationts in the drums. This should be in a movie! The emotion is really well captured in it.
Really good track, i love it
The dripsy sounds are really cool. I'm also digging the loud kick. The snare sounds a bit artificial/dry sometimes. A small amount of effects on the snare can go a long way in making it more organic!
Thanks for the feedback! ill keep it in mind for the next one
Your voice sounds really good and it fits the track very nicely! The bass is too loud though. You can hear it overpowering the rest of the mix when it kicks in. The track itself is really cool, so it would be very much worth it to look into mixing the bass a bit more.
Thanks I’ll look into that issue! Appreciate the feedback!
Black Hole Bears’ debut single from our EP dropping this friday!
You have a nice chemistery of sounds going on! I like the way you use a bit more different chords than most. The singing also sits nicely in the mix. Only advice I want to give is that it's easy to fall into 'musical chiché's' in this genre. But if you keep on being creative I don't think you'll fall into that trap too quickly.
Good luck with releasing the EP on friday!
Thank you :)
Hey just dropped this song last week! I checked out your music and it's sweet!
Thanks! I'm really digging the melody line that kick in half way in. The vocals are also really good, they do sound a bit dry though. A *small* amount of effects on the vocals could be nice. Other than that a really nice track, keem em coming!
Just made this one which I’m kinda feeling https://youtu.be/vnT3-aMPyWU
Sounds really like a finished track! You should get someone rapping on this! I don't think I'd really change anything about it.
I would if I could man. I literally message rappers everyday willing to give them free beats hoping persistence works but no rappers give me the time of day cause of my non existent following haha.
Here is a recent release on our label.
One of the tracks from my upcoming debut album/mixtape, Tapes of the Goblin.
Cool sounding track! I like the sound of the vocals, but it's not mixed in the track properly. You can hear the instruments getting pushed back by the vocals. You could use some eq-ing on the vocals to remove some frequencies that don't really add to the sound but take up space in the mix (like the super low end).
Definitely bro, I totally agree dude ! Thank u !
So, first off... love this idea! Well done!
I agree with some of the above comments, saying your kick could be a little punchier, as well as I can't tell if it's a snare or a clap sound, either way, I think the initial hit could be a little more defined. All in all, loved the track, sounds very Gorillaz- esq!
if you have time to check this out, it's a live studio version of an original song. We are just starting so it might not be the best, but hey, gotta start somewhere right? Hope you enjoy it!
I've never seen someone using a cajon like that! I think you have a nice thing going on with the chemistery of the band. The rythm is sometimes a bit off though. It can really help to practise the song with a metronome to get it perfect. Thanks for your comments and keep on rocking!

Take your pick lol! Enjoy!
Allright, This is for Deeper Water Bigger Boat. The flow (no pun intended) is really good! It's sometimes hard to hear the lyrics. But that might be fixed by just making the vocals a tad louder. It also seems like the vocals have some sort of distortion which produces crackles at some points in the track. In I Can't Feel No Better the voice does not have the crackle, so you could maybe compare between what you did there.
Thank you, Deeper Water Bigger Boat is still a work in progress and yeah that recording of it was kinda rushed so i’m still making improvements to it, but i greatly appreciate you’re feedback! And i hope you enjoyed my work, have a great day!
Nice and chill! The mellow vide is very well done. The lead guitar sound does sound somewhat artificial. I think playing around with the velocities and maybe an evolving effect would be nice there.
https://redcap.bandcamp.com/album/origin This album is made on my gen 1 iPad mini and it is definitely not good enough to be on bandcamp but oh well. Your stuff is really nice and cool and good
Haha, It's not bad either! I think you are very creative! Quite some sounds you're using sound a bit lo-fi. But that does not have anything to do with the music itself. I think it's pretty epic that you're able to make all of this on a gen 1 iPad! The arragement is really good!
Have a happy Monday!
And a happy Tuesday! Your beat is really cool, it does kick in a bit abruply but not too much. It's actually quite cool that comes in like that. There could be a bit more variation in there though. The beat itself is nice, but you could experiment with leaving out the kick/snare/both at some parts and then returning to the full beat to make the song more evolving.
I started as a singer-songwriter with piano accompaniment, but I'm starting to try out more surreal lyrics and playing around with sounds in Garageband. What do you think?
You have a nice style going on! I like how you're combining your voice with washy sounds. I also think the part right at the end is a cool variation on the rest of the track. Personally I would use that part more than how it's used now. You could let it come in earlier, make it a bit longer and then return to the main part. Mix-wise I feel like the bass is overpowerin the rest of the track. The track really has potential, I think even just lowering the volume of the bass will improve the mix a lot!

This is Lil peep inspired hip hop track, with a trap/lo fi beat
Btw just listened to your song as well, feels really unique, I like it! I can’t think of any artist to compare it to👍
Cool style! Really feels Lil Peep inspired as well. The guitar sounds very nice. I think it would be nice if you'd add some effects on your voice. Just a very small amount. Try out putting some chorus on there. This kindof emulates the effect of having multiple takes layered on top of each other.
Thanks for the feeback! I’ll take notes on that!
https://open.spotify.com/track/4ZzqvcBN7oMPaey1VUTAp6?si=UTOgd1yeR1SNmTDg9mdc3w my track i hope u enjoy it🤟🏻
Nice chilled out vibes from the beat! The sub sits nicely in there. I also like the vocals, but they sound a bit too much autotuned to my taste though.
All good man thx for your Opinion i appreciate a lot 🤟🏻🔌
Your voice and lyrics are really good! I also like the beat. It could be mixed/mastered a bit louder/clearer. I feel like the sub is just slightly too loud. You could look into using eq on your insturments to remove frequencies that are just noise/don't add anything to the mix.
Just released this less than a week ago!
Straight off I really like the guitar sound. Drums and vocals are also mixed in there nicely. The oh oh's are a bit overdone to my taste, it might be nicer if they would be in there less often. The gradually increasing intensity is very cool, makes it very energetic. I feel like some effects are too upfront though, if they would be somewhat more subtle you would still achieve the sound you'd want to. I do like the effects, they're just a tad too pronounced.
I’d appreciate some feedback on my first track. It has a chill/lo-fi feel.
Nice chords! Definitely good for a first track! I feel like the panning effect is a bit too much. It's distracting from the otherwise nicely composed song. The tape stop is really cool. Fits nicely there!
Thanks! I’ll keep that in mind!
Full Album :D Almost no one listened to it \^\^
Still more listens than I've got! I've listened to your tracks a bit and they're all really well produced. In my opinion they're sometimes lacking less full parts. There is a lot happening pretty much all the time, in the softer parts there is often a very pronounced lead that kindof makes the chill atmosphere a bit less calm. I also think some of the sounds you use might sound too basic or too dry, some effects could already improve these sounds a lot. These are all just minor thinks that I hear, over all the tracks sound really good and finished!
[I just released this one. it’s a saucy little romp about a girl and some hyper-dimensional entities. It’s weird and hopefully exotic, any ideas what genre this could be? ](https://soundcloud.com/user-31780267/high-strangeness-1/s-u2UUf)
Edit: feedback for you
Well constructed track and good sound choices for the most part, they fit the track and are coherent. The vocals are appropriate for the music and they compliment each other well, and they sit nicely in the mix
If i I had to change something I’d either change that hat sound or vary the velocity on it a little so it doesn’t sound so drum-machine-like, maybe lower volume on it too. It just really stands out to me. I feel like a touch of reverb on the entire track could be beneficial and give it a dreamy effect if used properly.
Thanks for listening to my track, really appreciate the feedback. I'll work on those hats! I think your song is very original. I like the sound effects in there. I was expecting a harder bass though. It seems like the droney bass is filtered or just very soft. It's nice to have a good mid range on a hard hitting bass so you can really hear it clearly.
Sounds good, friend. My biggest feedback would be get the mix a little better. The drum programming could be more natural too. Even things like velocity on the cymbal would help a bunch. I would also cut the song a little bit shorter, there are a few phrases that could be cut in half and would improve the flow of the song. Keep up the good work tho.
If you want to hear my stuff here is a track from my recent album: [https://soundcloud.com/briandelizza/she-tells-it](https://soundcloud.com/briandelizza/she-tells-it)[https://soundcloud.com/briandelizza/she-tells-it](https://soundcloud.com/briandelizza/she-tells-it)
Thanks for your notes. Just listened to your track and I like the vibe. The rythm of the kick fits very good. The vocals were a bit soft to my taste, they could be louder. The saxophone is really nice. These instruments are definitly not used as much as I'd like them to!
gospel sample, rap vocals, from an upcoming EP, give it a shot https://soundcloud.com/j0hnzhang/im-so-damn-happy-man
Edit:just heard your track, I agree with some of the commenters here, the mix could do with tweaking, like the drums, the pattern could be developed a bit more imho, the snare is too loud, the kick could be louder, the piano at the beginning could be EQed a bit, maybe take off some of the higher end, to sound less stock sound like, if u get my gist?? I think you've got something here though, I liked the buildup, and the melodies at the end with the sirenlike synth was really cool, made the track more dynamic instead of just loops and loops
either way, wishing the best for OP and commenters here with their musical endeavours!
Sounds good, this really has potential. I feel like the vocals are too muffles/low volume/hard to hear. If they would be mixed in louder it would do the track good. You could look into eq-ing vocals to remove unnecesary frequencies and then you can up the volume so they can really be heard like they should.
Sounds like a trip! In my opinion the lead is a bit loud compared to the rest of the song, but I really like the background synth!
Brave man! https://open.spotify.com/track/1jhCDnOVzWdZvN95GZYppd?si=L3QjY4mSQIawun3lIvbS9w
This is very well mixed! The vocals sound spot on. In my opinion the high background vocals are cool, but they come in a bit too often. That's a very personal opinion though, I'm not sure if most people will agree with that. The track sounds very finished!
I appreciate that!
