    NEW SINGLE - DISPARITY (Looking for feedback)

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey guys

    Got a new DNB track out today, called "DISPARITY", which is the first track of my upcoming EP, "NULL AND VOID". It's a drum and bass track with techno and groove inspired elements and is intended as a soundtrack. The release of this track will be followed up by the subsequent release of 3 more tracks over the coming weeks. All feedback is very much appreciated and I would love to hear what you think of it!

    Cheers

    It's mostly good. I feel like the arrangement doesn't really go anywhere tho. It keeps on building up, and then not reaching something.
    The sounds are pretty well balanced with each other.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you very much for your feedback! I know what you mean yeah, it's kind of a more minimalistic dnb style, and my first proper dnb production so I just wanted to make sure it was technically as good as it could be and I think the musical element suffered a bit due to my lack of experience with this genre for sure. I'm definitely paying more attention to the musical side of my productions to make sure they're truly interesting and dynamic rather than just getting all the sounds well balanced. Thank you again

    When it comes to the mix itself, the only thing that stuck out as unusual was the super-quiet drums in the intro.

    It seemed OK to me. I see what VHS was saying about the drums in the intro.

    Low end might be just a bit heavy. I know it should be heavy for the genre, but this is pretty low-end-heavy. Check it on a big system and see if it's boomy.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you, I'm glad to hear the mix was okay. That was my first proper dnb production so I'm happy I managed to get it decent first time round, for quite a complex piece technically as well.

    Are you referring to the hi passed drum fill inbetween 0:10 and 0:20? Or just the drums in general in the intro, would just be helpful to know exactly which ones you mean so I can alter it

    Thanks again

    Hi Triple,

    Thank you for your comments, same question as I asked to VHS, do you mean the drum fill between 0:10 & 0:20? Or just the drums for the entirety of the intro?

    Yeah I have done my best with the low end, but it's good to get another opinion too, I have KRK 8's as my monitors so that might be why partly, and a small room with big speakers never goes well for mixing. I'll stick the track back through my spectrograph and see if I can pick up and peaking areas and adjust the limiters.

    Thank you

    Yeah. It sounds like there's a kick and snare (or equivalent) in that fill too?

    I was talking about the drums in the entirety of the intro.

    On the low end, I'm not sure you have a problem. I was listening on nearfields (small monitors). But from what I was hearing, I think you should check the low end on a bigger system. Everything might be OK. But it's worth a check.

    I think the mix and samples you are using sound good. The composition is pretty good too, except that I second what VHS says...it gets to a point where it just sounds like the same thing over and over with no climax....no direction...Not sure how you would solve that with this genre
    Sonar X, Les Paul, Marshall DSL40C, AD2, Rode NT1, Shure SM57, and Dunlop picks, and cheap egg shakers, and Nike Shoes.
