Hi I feel like my track is missing something but I don’t know what it is. Also iffy on the mix. Since I don’t see anyone’s post I’ll be sure to respond feedback for whoever replies to this. https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/JFRB8n6ZppUMiXwt8

Hey, not really my style of music so take it with a grain of salt, but I would say maybe include a counter melody with another lead sound(maybe a pluck or something). Also i would try to emphasize the transitions more with sweeps, fitering etc to make it hit harder. As far as the mix, i know you're going for the bass heavy distorted vibe, which is cool, but i would say you could back off some of the distortion and or clean it up and also maybe lower the presence of the kick/808 bc it dominates a little. Cool track and good energy overall tho


bassfella_music

I Like your lead synth and melody a lot. Good groove! I love the dirty kicks too. I agree with the comment from u/WreQuaW \-> except the need for a counter melody. I think that would be more of a choice you should make, I think things will get more cluttered then (so maybe replace it with something). I think you really should add a snare that hits hard or increase the volume of the percussion/snarish sound, because it's a bit too far in the back for my taste. I also think the vocal chops have too much filth on them and I am not sure if I like them that way or not. ​ I am uploading my track right now for feedback. Check it out!


xlr_

did you crank up the limiter on your master channel? sounds super crushed. hth.


Boodofski

Latest track, feel like I’m improving and would love any feedback on this one! https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/z2Ffxp8S33w7M5LX9


todaysthrowawayfam

i would rework the intro and beginning sections. they just build up too slowly for me, even with respect to progressive and deep house structuring. i would probably introduce the leads a bit sooner and have a short bridge right before 32 bars that can soft reset the track down to the leads which can then build up again and into the break. after that the track feels structurally solid, just that opening part seems to struggle and gets a little monotonous after a while.


Boodofski

Thanks for the input!


PM_ME_YOUR_HAGGIS_

Ah yes melodic techno. Right up my street. To start, can't say much about your improvement but what I will say is this sounds accomplished and very much sounds like someone who knows what they're doing. It's smooth, nicely mixed and and the sound design is right up my street. I really like this, my only suggestion is that the drop doesn't kick in with enough energy, maybe a subtle decline on levels leading up to the mix would help. TBH this is a trick I really should use more in my tracks but don't because im lazy. If you would be kind enough to take a listen to my first attempt at a melodic techno track, from someone who clearly has done a few it would be very much appreciated, I posted on Nov 12th feedback thread. TY.


Boodofski

Thx for the feedback! Listening to yours now.


WreQuaW

This is super solid man. Sounds really clean too. My only real tips would be to keep trying to create big wide atmosphere for the track and also to play with automation on opening/closing the filter on the lead/bass sounds to keep things interesting. Also maybe add an arp or something at the end or a new lead sound to mix it up. Great work doe


Boodofski

Thx! Ya I’m trying to overindex on atmospheres lately, will def try to do so in this one


bassfella_music

Sounds pretty chilled. I think the arrangement and elements are well chosen. Potential tips/improvements: Did you automate the volume when you open up that filter on the melody? It's something I tend to do sometimes, to make sure it doesn't sound too high in volume when you open up the filter or doesn't sound too quite when closing the filter. I do think your kick and bass should stand out more. Up the volume on them / make more room for them. That clap can be more in the front as well. I like the rolling vibe on the bassline! Very chilled tune! Well done.


Boodofski

Thx for the thoughts! You’re right I only think i automated the filter on the lead and not volume, will look into that. Definitely one thing I’m working on is getting better at how the kick and bass play together and cut through the mix. Will revisit those elements


solitarybikegallery

A good trick is to make sure your kick and bass have different "qualities." If your bass is really sharp and metallic, use a softer sounding kick (but with a good transient still). And vice versa (use a sharp, punchy kick with a softer, rounder bass sound). Is the bass super clean? Make the kick gritty, maybe a little fuzzed out on the high end. etc


Boodofski

This is a great point, thank you! I feel like recently I’ve started to have this concept in the back of my head, eg instead of just adding stuff for the sake of adding it, why not focus on “complimentary” or “missing” elements to balance.


bassfella_music

Glad to hear I could be of some help here. If you got any time, can you check out my song too? I putted a new link, which should work. \+ maybe use a cool song that sounds similar to yours and compare the kick & bass to that. I think you should aim for that kick balance just like in your song BOHMER, but maybe slightly less volume! I like the way it's mixed, very clear sound in my opinion.


Boodofski

Yes will check out your track this weekend!


WreQuaW

Hey, working on mixing this track i've been working on and would love feedback especially around parts of the mix i can improve (ie. things that stick out too much etc.) https://soundcloud.com/requasound/let-my-love-in-new-mix-3/s-fU2ont8YD3E?si=4c21702dd16d4736bdba6f2657f95f3d


WesternConcentrate94

My only critique would be the kick drum. It sounds too clicky and noticeable. Are you compressing it at all? I would suggest layering the kick with one that has more energy in the 150-200hz range or just using a different sample that has more "knock". I think you could still keep the clicky layer, but bring it down in volume a bit. Otherwise, the instruments and vocals sound good. Nice job.


WreQuaW

Thank you that makes sense. Honestly forget about the kick since I’ve listened to the song so many times. Not sure if I’ve really processed it at all lol


WesternConcentrate94

Happens to me a lot too haha :). Overall, I really like the production. Good sound selection and mixing.


bassfella_music

Hi there, I like the arrangement, piano and vocal. it sounds like happy times. I think you can improve the build-up a lot. It misses tension and I find that snare sounding somewhat cheap/tiny. \- Maybe look for another snare / combine some snares together and add something like a tonal riser. Playing with panning & velocity on the different elements is something I like to do a lot too. \- Also a sub boom add the start of the build-up at 0:49 might help. \- Add something like a small reverb/delay increasement + automate the mono knob to go more mono and return it to the normal value when the drop hits. I am not sure if you did this, the contrast between the build-up and drop is not enough for me. I also miss stereo width in the song in general. I hope you can do something with this. If you got questions about it, feel free to ask it. Please check out my song too!


WreQuaW

Thank you for the detailed feedback, I appreciate it. Any tips on stereo width? I’ve been actually working to make it wider. With shakers, snaps, etc I widened with some izotope imager and haas effect. For the pianos i didn’t wanna use haas bc it sounds so bad in mono. Instead I tried to add some wider layers and some extra stereo widening. I haven’t added much width to the bass but I guess I could on the high end. I wanted to double the vocal to L and R but I was getting some phasing issues as I only have one take. And not sure how wide I should make the lead vocal chops Sorry this was very rambling, but overall I agree it’s not as wide as I’d like it to be. I haven’t done much with panning because I feel like it’s not really typical for the style, but maybe you could recommend something for that. Any help would be much appreciated!


bassfella_music

Yeah I mainly meant the vocal which misses width. The drums are fine, the piano too. The bass can stay fully mono. \- There is a free plugin called ''Wider'' by Infected Mushrooms, maybe try that. It's something I sometimes use (make sure it doesn't sound strange in mono and sometimes it's sounding a bit fake in stereo too in my opinion). \- You could try delay on the vocal and sidechain/automate it so the delay is not overlapping with the vocal itself. I barely use vocals, so you better look this one up :D \- You can also have the left side EQ'd differently from the right side if you double the vocal hard panned left & right. Make sure to have the EQ be inverted from each other, then their won't be a change in mono balance wise. At the end you could put a bit of stereo widening on the master to increase the width in general. Don't overdo this + compare to a similar song. I always try to avoid putting too much effect on the master, because the ears get used to it real fast and every tiny move is allready a lot haha I think you should experiment a bit and compare what sounds best to you, so safe different versions and google what others say about vocal processing for width.


bassfella_music

Also don't overdo the width on the vocal, you don't want to lose it's mid presence, since it's an important part in your song.


bassfella_music

Your mix is good in the way the volume is balanced, so keep that. And could you check out my song too if you got time? Good luck producing anyway!

Would love some feedback on this track. Kinda has an outsider/leftfield house vibe. I'm sure there's some EQ/mastering adjustments to be made. Would really really appreciate some advice on this. I'd happily give some feedback to anyone who may want it on Thier track. Listen to Dead Mandem 2 by Tomb Arka on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/QrBKb
