    Bitdrop- Equilibrium at 1.13
    on February 20, 2014 22:02

    My only feedback is to pay attention to the sub-bass. There's a low rumble almost throughout the whole track. If you take it out, then when it comes back, it has more power. There needs to be some space for the contrast to happen, so there is more impact.

    Hey Cliff. Lots of great sonics here and tons of detail! I have one suggestion on the mix. It seems that everything is at the same level and fighting for attention, which ultimately makes it sound flat dynamically. You might try creating more contrast, by picking which element(s) will be in the foreground and moving the rest back in the mix. If everything is big, then nothing is big, you know what I mean? In other words, things can only sound big if they are in contrast to things that are quieter/smaller. Hope that helps!

    My only critical response is that the drums are so wide that they sound a bit hollowed out. Nothing solid in the center. Of course, this may be intentional, but just in case. Also, you have to be careful when putting so much in the side channel that it collapses to mono ok. I checked it and it actually sounds decent in mono. (Not easy to accomplish, with such a wide sounding track.)

    @mao wao: Thanks! It's a vocal sample, looped in the sampler, and there's some side-chain filtering triggered by the bass drum.

    Anneka - Technicolor (William Fields remix) (2010) at 1.27
    on December 16, 2010 02:10

    @Vostek: I was definitely going for a more spacious, dynamic sound. It's funny, the loud parts are still around -9db RMS, which is usually quite loud. I guess it goes to show that RMS doesn't necessarily equate with loudness. It really depends on the frequency balance. (5k Hz sounds much louder than 50 Hz.)
