new drum and bass track - critic it please
Hey, I've just done the groundwork on a new track, taken 3 hours so far. Drum and bass starts 2 mins in.

Just want some HONEST opinions on if I should continue, I can't stand people lying and saying it sounds good, when it blatantly doesnt!

Thanks guys.

PS the main lead eurocrap sound defo needs changing... Was an elec guitar but was too much.

Excuse the file name.

Also guys, check out my site if you have time and lemme know what you think?

track critic
Hey, I dig the tune. In my opinion I think that there is alot of "dead space" in the beginning of the track which in my experience tends to leave the listener alot of wanting to fast forward until the progression drops. I think you should implement little bits of the progression to keep the listener hooked, just something real quick and then take it away so they are like whoa!! Also there are some critical elements that aren't being brought out in the mix, some of those pads in the riding the back are fighting for attention. Try mixing with some automation to bring those elements forward. But over all I think you have a stellar production, keep it up.

Hey, cheers dude, thanks for the feedback. I'll try some more automation out and see what I come up with. I always seem to have long, boring intro's to my tracks, need to sort that. Cheeers :)

i really liked it, however near the end i got kinda bored with it, but you got skills indeed man, everyone has their own taste <3

The intro is way too long, but you already know that. Nice production, just tends to be the same 8-16 bars over and over with not too much variation. But yeah, each to their own!

Hi there, Your song has potential. Yeah i agree that the intro is a bit long. The drum beat is good but maybe you could tweak it to make it more agressive/exciting. I'm thinking like "I wish you could talk" by squarepusher. But anyways good song.

I have some songs i made with reason 4, you could give me some tips on?

Ah cool, cheers guys, kind words :) I'm bearing that stuff in mind and varying it all up a bit and make the intro a bti more intresting :)
