yet i would love to post the update because i kinda love it :D about '' long live the king ''
i kinda dont like the kick yet , as written above , it can sound clearer / more darker / more pure :D
but for the structure :D , thats i think what has improved.

some track comments

KRB = human disease , the overal sound when the drop comes , sounds a bit '' flat '' for me personal , i dont know , maby make it '' wider '' the sound .maby a reverb / decay on the lead will do the trick to make it sound bigger .
for the rest i like this catchy melody , good breaks , good in my opinion :) .


-------------

@pinago = i like it in overal . yet there are some points to work on i think , i miss claps as a guide towards the qlimax , and other precussions , also a detail :
i dont like the sudden sound ending at 0:50 , maby use a fade out , that is used a few seconds later , a few seconds earlier , to let it fade out nicely and let the next lead take over the silence :).
i like the idea overall in this track snippet . good working :D .

@krb wonderfull pain , i like the melody again , kick good , the sudden volume change at 1:27 , suddenly is maby a idea to make it more smoother , give it more time to build up to that volume .
it kinda makes me think about = arix - nova :D , and i like that track :D
also i like in general :)

Soundphase : escape the simulation .
yes ! , i love the oldscool fat kicks ! , the little spacy twingles , you have to love it , but i kinda see were its going , and i kinda like it , i would not mind listning to it :) .

but if you say darkstyle , i dont know if to hear it as hardstyle , and comment it as hardstyle .
if yes , i would say , make the flat sound bigger , and let it pop out .
do what you feel is good :) !

Thanks. I actually made a completely new breakdown and melod. I meant to call it darkcore, but it's kind of hardstyle (like early traditional hardstyle). It's on 140BPM. I think I will make two versions of the track since I also like this wacky melo (which is in this snippet). The full intro is dope (and really trippy).

@Gunner1001: your kick needs a lot of work, but aside from that I think you did well on establishing an atmosphere in this track

@JensJacobsen: This is definitely a track I would put in my playlists. If you want to improve I've got some nitpicky stuff:
  • In the kick-change at 0:28 you lose the depth and energy of your sound. Even though your kick sounds really well. But I'm not as good of a producer to know what is missing.
  • The vocals at 0:46 start too soon. Not by much, but maybe just 1 beat (if that is the English term). Therefore this whole vocal part seems kinda off rhythm.
But I really like:
  • The sound from the transition to your Melody with your Kick together at 1:46
  • The overall energy at 1:50 (this has a really catchy drive!)
  • The fast pitch change of you kick at 2:25

@Jens Nice track.. I like the breakdowns you made, and the buildups to the climax are nicely done. Interesting track.. could imagine this being signed somewhere (Dirtyworkz?) I also got a bit of The Pitcher vibe.

I have something very different, warning: might be a mood killer if you don't feel like dark/oldschool! :+

Tell me if you think something could be changed/bettered

I was going for the 2006 asbest tracks style

the other mix:

@Soundphase
Wow, seriously it sounds like if it was made a decade ago ahah
The structure is good, I'd say that the intro is maybe a bit long
Even if you were going for a 2006 like track, it lacks a bit of high frequencies and clarity on some samples
The kicks are really as they were at that time
Pretty nice to listen to something like this in 2019 !

Ok, back to our time, here's (again) something Euphoric, I've tried to improve my transitions and buildups, also making the leads wider

@KRB-MP I have to say, I think the melody is pleasant :) Sound design and all that is ok but there is something about the mixdown which is hmm. I think there is too much treble cut off on the kick, could be a mastering issue if you mastered the kick separately to the track. The other sounds have a good brightness, just something about the treble on the kick.

@Soundphase
Thank you for the feedback, I reduced the high freqs (trebles) of the kick but I guess it wasn't a good idea ahah

Let's see if there's the same problem in that one ahah

@KRB-MP really like the overall feel of the track, melody plays out nicely, same feedback as @soundphase, there is also missing some crunch in the kick in your latest track, but I guess that could also be a taste issue. overall nice build ups and structures! good job!

@Jenskacobsen overall sound design is top-notch, in the kick switch in the mid-intro (0:28) the kick looses it's power due to a lack of bass in comparison with the kick beforehand. melody is awesome, and I really like the vocal ~(Maybe needs some timing fixes?) overall really great track! :star:

I've been working on something raw:



What do you guys think?

@KVAIN Production wise; using another style of lead may help because the one you use sounds too similar to the screech, before the build up the bit reduced vocal snippet could have a lp cut off on it and use reverb on it to give it more epicness, in the 2nd drop/ climax before the second part of the drop starts there can be some volume and hi pass automation in the leads in order to give more emotion, the screech sounds too high frecuency wise; a multiband compressor or an analog saturator plugin may help with trimming the saturtated Hi End.


I have been working on this track not necessary Raw or euphoric, just hardstyle with a touch of mine let's say :)

@KVAIN not my kind of hardstyle but this certainly sounds produced well, vocals really fit the idea, the screeches sound professional. Melody is ok...it works.

@we sixteen I like the rhythm build up that happens in the intro, the bass on the kick at around 1:30 isn't a clear tone - sounds too saturated, but maybe was intended, the climax execution is good but when the bass pitches it sounds off in some parts

does my idea sound stupid?

@We Sixteen
I like your vocal sample! It could use some effects and delay to make it more juicy. I like your build-up a lot! Intropart is okay. Second breakdown with the vocal and melody is good. I’m sorry but I don’t like your melody or your synth.. It doesn’t fit the rest of the track. The second build up is really good! Your kick could use a little more low frequencies. I really like the last part of your track!

@Soundphase
I’m not sure where you are going with this idea. It had the potential for a nice intro/build-up but I would definitely try to have more of a build-up if you want to use it as a main part. The robotic voice is oke-ish sounding. The first few sentences are cool but then there is a weird pause which causes it to not flow so nice..

@DJZane
I’m not one to judge techno because it’s not my preferable style. It is mixed well! And it has more variation than the techno I’ve listened to, which is a plus for me.

I've submitted my track for a remixcontest of: Enlite - The Ones. The label is a dubsteplabel tho so I don't think I have much of a chance. Tell me what you think!

OneManRiot, the vocals and the chords should be louder (perhaps 3 dB would do). You could boost the highs of the kick as well (maybe layer another sample with it or distort it). The claps should be quieter in my opinion, but that could be traced to the chords being too quiet.
By the way I liked the track! All I said could just be my personal preference.
