I guess the sound is cool the first 2 times but it's not entirely satisfying for 2 minutes. It needs a lot more variation. Not much is being presented.
Ok. Thanks for telling me.
Well, considering you haven't practiced much on dubstep I hope my feedback will be helpful.
First, you should probably get some drum samples. There are eons of free drum samples out there, and most of them are royalty-free to use on Newgrounds. Just a warning, I got my audio portal scout revoked because I used default drum samples and presets. There's no shame in using drum samples that were made by others (as long as they're royalty-free), just about every artist in the world uses them. Stock samples just don't have good quality, because FL Studio cares more about creating the DAW than a bunch of .wav samples.
Second, the melody is extremely boring. It's just ding-ding-ding, over and over. Maybe it would be pretty catchy for a ringtone, but not so much a song. The saw sounds like it was made in 3X OSC, which would be okay except for it doesn't sound very satisfying. You can make pretty decent saws in Harmor, since there's a lot more sound settings than "choose a waveform and *ding* it's done".
Third, the drop is just... well, I don't know how to put it. The saw isn't very powerful, and it's very quiet. It also didn't feel like dubstep. The only based you use was a 'yoy', and it appeared very randomly. I would suggest maybe adding a wobble (and if you have Harmor you can actually make a decent one) and making the saw chords a bit more harmonic.
I do have to give you props because you actually nailed the beat. Way better than my first try at dubstep.
Hopefully you don't take any offense to this review. I'm only trying to give you suggestions and tips that might help improve your production in the future especially if you want dubstep to be one of your main genres. 2 stars for effort.
Thx it was very helpful I tried hard but I know I failed. Thx for the tips. I'll try hard and make it more powerful. Also thx for your honesty, I didn't like the rating but I respect honest ones. Thx again
Like every other Splittercore song, it lacks melody. I mean, don't get me wrong, it does have drums and spoken words. But, it is still a song so it's not an excuse to leave out some kind of melody. Some fast paced arps might work really well with this. As far as the "Splittercore" part, well, it's just sounds looped at 500 BPM. Not very creative at all. There's really nothing else to say. It's a fun experiment, but the audio that is presented is not very promising.
Let me give you some advice: Try not to use FL Mobile. It's kinda hard to create sounds on here because you're limited to stock samples and loops. If you're looking for a free DAW that you can use on your computer (and you also have more variety for sounds) there is always ZynAddSubFX. I know of a couple people that use it and while the mixdown isn't great, the sounds are quite nice.
As far as the song, anyone can set the tempo to 500 BPM, pick an instrument or drum and pump out 50 speedcore songs in a day. And "it's speedcore, what do you expect" isn't too good of an excuse for a song.
I feel like even though speedcore isn't that good of a genre there are ways to improve this. Some melody/chords wouldn't kill the song and a drum build-up might be nice. If FL Mobile had tempo envelopes, I would also suggest maybe making the drum build up going faster to match up with the drop (like, a 16 bar build up going from 140 BPM to 500 BPM). Other than that, there is a lot of room for improvement on this one. Sorry.
Ok. Lemme clear this quickly. 1 - You are not limited to stock samples & loops. 2 - I actually tried (lol) to make this. And i know I could improve this A LOT. I am still getting started after all. Thanks for your input dude.
Those basses were SICK! They're so slimy and just.. really cool sounding :D
Unfortunately, I'm not too much a fan of the intro and the chords you used. The violin, I'm going to be honest, was not a good idea. I get you're trying to capture the idea of orchestral dubstep, but they're should've been more than just a violin in that case. As I said, I don't like the notes on the strings or piano, they're harsh and very unsatisfying. It doesn't match very well with the bass drop. I do have to give you props on such an amazing drop though, so 3 stars 4 u.
Thanks for the review and in truth you're right I'm not good with the melodies or chords I started 1 year ago to produce that is enough but I do not have much time to learn things about composition by the school. I appreciate your review and I will be improving for the next ;)
So this is why you named yourself Growl Kat... I am not disappointed <3
Yes, its one of the reasons to name me Growl Kat, I usually use much heavy growls, but I cannot make this souns actually until I buy a new procesor. Thanks Man/Girl!
Ooh, that whipping noise at 1:56 was not nice. Good job on the track otherwise, though. Those basses were slick.
Oh wow, what a surprise review!
Yeah, I think that sound might of been the grenade ticking sound or something, unless it was the bass.
Anyway, thanks for the review! The basses are kinda really edited from presets I got, I messed with them to suit my tasting... They sound dope.
1. This is labeled incorrectly. Dubstep doesn't come close to this. The original is labeled as 'Techno' and, well, you basically made a cover so....
2. The notes are spread out enough. Some notes are too close together.
3. As I said, this was basically a cover and not much was changed from what was there. The drums aren't as bad as you describe them in the description, and for once your song has a good quality instead of a phone recording.
Dude, you're way better at dubstep than you are at electro. Sounds were amazing. I didn't really like those high pitched parts around 0:49, but that's just a "hearing-sensitivity" thing with me.
Ever considered getting a DAW or finding a way to digitally record this? The audio quality is extremely poor when you're recording just a piano. The tune is catchy, but quality is a very important aspect to music.
