Very rythmic, very melodical, very experimental though, never heard any dubstep tune like this. I like it. I think Dubstep's your thing. I like this one better than the other tune, though the other one's good aswell. I personally would say, work with the bass like a drumkit in Metal. Make it hard when it's loud and make it soft when it's quiet/soft. After all I somehow missed something in this tune. I dunno what it was, probably something like a climax which almost every tune has that I know. I mean as far as I know, dubstep builds up to a climax point where everything gets dropped as hard as possible. A.K.A. Skrillex dropping a big pile of doo doo if you know what I mean ;D
However, try to experiment with some more genres and find out if there's something that you're maybe much much better in. I mean you're rn a better musician than most people I review, cos mostly I'm here to help ppl get the basics or advanced things. You, my friend, probably have the stuff either in your blood or already know that basic and avdvanced stuff and now need to either find your personal top genre or work in the genre you like and learn the details for that.
But it won't hurt learning the basics of the details from other genres. ;) Maybe it helps creating something completely new, just imagine the possibilites.
Anyway, keep doing what you do and you will improve :) As said, you're on the right side of the road.
Thanks for all the advice man. As a matter of fact, I've made it a personal goal to tackle as many different sub genres as I can. My next target is drum and bass, and it's about 80% done right now. Will probably finish sometime this week.
It's not bad, but it feels like it's missing something/it could be better, the thing is - I am really fckn bad at making beats. But I'd still use this to rap on that. I just think you could use this loop and expand it a little bit more. I feel like the base melody could be worked out until you get a complete song.
I suggest trying to make a song out of it - even if it'll sound bad first, just try and try until it sounds good, get some critique on NG and work on it again.
Which btw. is how you progress in being a creator on this platform ;)
However, I can't say I could've done any better but I ain't a standard for that. What I wanna say is - you're on the right side of the road, you just need to go further and have the braveness to accept mistakes. I just think you uploaded this because you were scared of mistakes / bad ideas.
Lemme tell you - there are no bad ideas and if you have "no idea" what to add, you're in the wrong profession. But you're not. So what you have is too much ideas. And when you start realizing that, you can work on how you work on your ideas, how you filter out the good ideas and how to make a sick tune.
But first things first - just start. Somewhere. Or actually, continue working on this tune. I'm sure it'll be sick AF when you're done. - When you're actually done ;)
Thanks you, your review made my day, im working by now in some remixes, not because im out of ideas, is because im still learning how to use FX studio and audicity, but i really could make a full versión of this song, thank you very much
Being real honest here - sure you got some more potential to pull out, I can hear that you aren't as experienced as some musicians making actual money with their songs but this track shows off where you wanna go and it shows it off pretty well. This is a tune I'd upload to Spotify if I were you, cos I'd put it definitely into my playlist.
My tips on getting better - just continue doing more tunes, work on them until you like them, think of what you've learned so far and you'll be good2go
Good shit. Just make more songs. You'll improve if you're self critical AF. If so - 3 Tips
1 - Take your time. Like try to take yourself several days for each workstep because tip 2
2 - Sleep after you think you're done, the next day you'll have a complete different look at your work which will help improve a lot
3 - ONLY RELEASE IF >>>>YOU<<<< ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR WORK - When I release a Poetry video I always get the reaction from myself I want to reach in the viewer/listener.
5/5 I scouted you for the audio portal.
Thx a million man, really appreciate it
:) :) :)
I will listen to your feedback and take it on board, I really need someone telling me that I suck because it boots my confidence XD. I would love to make more songs, there's at least another 5 coming in this album, it's just that some of them sound the same and I'm busy making and rehearsing other ones.
It's a nice idea to practice.
Try something original, something you did.
Develop your own style before trying it to apply on anything.
It sounds really like you copied the MIDI of some dude and just changed instruments
Average work, try harder!
I can't hear some of the lines. Anyway, I am normally the one doing long reviews like etelik here. But he's obviously your Electrical Music Expert. I'm just the artist, expressionist and guy who teaches you the basics of the basics. And in this case I even don't have anything to tell you except listen to etelik when he reviews your stuff.
Honestly I can't hear anything wrong from that track so yah. *nothing to do here*
Thanks for the review! Also want to point out theres a reborn version of this thats different people say its better but i guess its up to opinion, ive tried to match etelik's advice in the timespan i had, but the advice he game will be beneficial in the longrun, once again thanks for the review!
You got inspired (I also know from where but I keep forgetting names) you started working, you did good - until the end.
However, on the fine points you should keep yourself to etelik cos I'm looking from a more artistisc perspective than a technical perspective.
I think you'll improve if you keep release tunes. Just do it and ask for advice whereever you can
This is no place to be for somebody so skilled like you man. :D
If I would know it better I'd say you stole this track, shit dude, if something sounds amazingly good I don't even look that much on music theory. I mean the picazzo strings at the ending was just the tip of the iceberg. I like your style kid, go on man! Go on, this shit is great.
One last thing - "Hybrid" is a word I see so much and it annoys me in the music genre. I don't fucking care if you drive a hybrid but that shit has nothing to do in the music Genre. If something's not exisitng and something's part of other Genres, it's not a fucking hybrid, it's a new fucking genre. There is no such thing as a hybrid in Music. Get that in your head.
5/5 - would jizz agaaaah- I mean would play again
I read "Drums of Mordor" and the first thing I listen to is some electric instrument bull...
Now don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of LotR and I know that the "Drums of Mordor" would sound like wardrums, telling you with the sound of their drums that they'l f*cking scoop your eyeballs, slit your throat, put your eyeballs in your throat and rip off your chest with their bare hands.
Hey don't get me wrong mate but stuff like this very seriously and you should think about it before you make something including a fandom with it. Mordor is a place of Uruk'hai, Orcs, Goblins, Beasts. If there's any of them playing a xylophon-like instrument making a song like this sounds like I'm sure he's not living for much long in Mordor.
You know which place this might be more fitting to? Elrond- Or at least somewhere like that. If you make "Drums of Mordor" make sure this song sounds like PURE EVILNESS and PURE HATE, ANGER and DESTRUCTION. Cos that's what Mordor means in the LotR Universe.
Now that I gave you a really long lesson in Nerdtology - to the track.
It isn't bad. It's really oldschool RPG-like, felt almost like WoW Classic on Alliance side or like Ultima I - XIII, the first Might and Magic and so on. It reminds me of the days where the internet was something you accidentally enabled on your phone and you panickly tried to disable it ASAP. Go on wih your work. It's like an oldschool pixely diamond that needs some grinding, some polishing. But don't you fricking dare to call a track like this "Drums of Mordor" ;D
Sorry for the inconvenience! It was just a no-brainer ;)
The drum preset was called mordor :D
But anyway, thanks for the comment!
I'd use it as a soundtrack. In a Movie, Game or wherever honestly this is fcking great shit to listen to.
Not too loud, not too quiet, harmony it on fl33k and I must say I honestly don't know what the fudge you search here on NG, go out, make some more tracks, sell 'em, make money. I'm sure you'll make a living with this. Maybe also like the guy who did the soundtrack for Hotline Miami you know? I'd dig it seeing your name in Hotline Miami 3 (if there will be one)
