Bring the Bass Back
« on: April 11, 2016, 02:14:16 am »
After a whole year learning and trying music production, I have finally finished an entire track. I took LCA by GTA and used its arrangement almost exactly. I basically attempted to recreate it adding my own twists to the song. Please let me know what you think and any tips on the mix.

This is pretty dope, great job!  The mix sounds very clean and crisp on my end.

I think that your song may have more impact and presence if you include more drums/hats like in LCA, though this is pretty stylistic to my taste and a personal preference really.    Also a subjective personal preference, but I think that vocal sample would sound cool with even more effects and chops on it throughout to keep the variety going.  I thought it had a lot of potential on the buildups if you were to chop certain parts of it and have it play rhythmically in time with the build up drums.  Also could sound cool if you drop the octave to make it deeper in parts just to switch it up.

Keep it up man!

thanks for the comments RoboDrop, I also thought the vocals were dull but I couldn't get them to sound better, didn't think of dropping them an octave.
