Not sure what genre this is. I know it's nothing special I just tried to focus on compression and mix before I moved on.

Subject: I have multiple interest really, mostly in like Future Bass, D&B, Funk, Indiepop, SynthWave, really I hate this whole "genre" thing, I just want to make a track that has it' own personality.

DAW(s): Logic Pro X
Genre: Future Bass
Other Genres: Future Bass, Drumste honestly, I don't know how to label the music style since the style I'd like to produce sounds so unique, example Grant, WRLD, San Holo, Oh Wonder, What So Not, Lemaitre, Manilla Killa etc

Sound Design / Re: How can I make this synth Pluck?
« Last post by Escape-Velocity on Today at 02:45:46 am »
Honestly sounds to me like just a basic supersaw pluck. You could pretty much do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCow165uLxc on any synth VST, doesn't need to be sylenth.

Sounds like in your example they also have the noise oscillator a little louder than in the youtube example. The general concept for all pluck sounds are the same, you can just change things here and there (wavetables/wave type, unison, filter amount, pitch modulation amount, effects, etc) to taste.

I'd also like to get a little sappy and say that it's a really good learning exercise to try and copy others' sound design, but it gets to a point where for most sounds you'll never get it EXACTLY the same, nor should you, because you're you and they're them and each of you go about making music a little bit differently (which is part of the beauty of music really) ;D

Hope this helps!

Finished Tracks / Re: Vuto - Predator

You should maybe turn down the audio of the just the trumpet sounding lead, but only outside the drop, because the volume it presents during drop actually blends in really well with all the other "larger" sounds, but it remains the same volume throughout. Because the the audio is not actually that much quieter outside of the drop, the perceived decibels is making the lead stand out just a little too much. Main lead should present itself front and center, but it should still play nice with everything else around it, especially if it's present for a good chunk of the music.
.....
With that out of the way, I still actually like this, nice melodies, the upbeat halfbeat up and down of the main lead, with plenty going at all times to keep you interested. If it was more synths instead of sample libraries it would probably end up sounding pretty Porter Robinson-eque.

OH and this is just a personal note, but Predator doesn't feel like a fitting name. You think predators, you think harsh, dark, high energy sounds, but this is obviously nothing of the sort.

Thank you sooo much for your feedback :) Will keep an eye for it in my new stuff! And it's really sick that you can hear a bit of Porter Robinson inspirations in it, I don't think I have made that too obvious. And I agree that Predator actually isn't a fitting name, it wouldn't really fit in any of my songs I will produce I think, but some friends of mine really wanted me to produce a song called Predator, so I just wanted to make them happy and named this one Predator. Usually I pay more attention to the name.

That was nice. Now, is there a compilation video of worst live performances? I know there are few of all Kpop, but havent seen such Kara video yet.

I personally don't like listening to sampling usually unless the sample is manipulated in a way you make it something unique, just saying that before I say anything. My critical opinions.
It's been a long time Coming: I didn't like this. It bothers me how little you did with the original sample. You looped certain parts and added some drums, that honestly are a little hectic and pull away from a good rhythm.
69: Does a little better in the vague sampling, didn't take anything to complex so it made it easier for you to loop. The horns and the strings are too obviously a sampler with little to no mixing effects and just don't mix well with the damp sound of the rest of it. The drums pull off a little better this time, and I like that pull away. If the piano isn't sampled from someone else's music, kudos on that because it mixes in much better than the horns and strings. drums play much nicer in this as well.

Mixing/Mastering / Re: Losing Brightness when mastering
« Last post by Aris Opus on February 27, 2017, 05:21:24 pm »
If you happen to have multipass you could just put the pitch shifter with a few steps up on some of the higher frequencies of a synth to bring back some of the highs or add more harmonics. Could do it with an ableton effect/instrument rack too if you set it up to split frequencies up. Im not sure how you would do it with other daw stock plugins though

Mixing/Mastering / Re: why do people say mastering isnt very important
« Last post by Aris Opus on February 27, 2017, 04:16:48 pm »
I think the best way is to find out for yourself. Send your next track to a well known mastering studio to have it worked on. You'll see exactly what it does and doesn't do for you.
