    Second set of comments:

    Now for the really hard part. Figure out at least one additional chord sequence to create another section in the track. I have the greatest difficulty doing this myself and so often end up doing tracks with only one repetitive chord sequence. But, I know that my tracks would be better if I made the effort to figure how where to go with a new sequence that works in the track. And, I figure that the more I try, the easier it will be for future tracks.

    Finally, I actually kind of liked the ending. It was really unusual. I'm not sure how you did it. That being said, I think Danke's suggestion is a good one. I tend to use fade-outs myself because I can't figure out how to end my tracks. Danke is right that figuring out how to end a song is perhaps the hardest thing. A good fadeout is not a bad choice, but it can't be the only method used. If you produce and EP or an album, and every song ended with a fadeout, that would be pretty obvious. Remember that lower frequencies have more power than high frequencies, so you might need to adjust the EQ on the master outputs as you do the fade-out to maintain the balance.

    I'd be very interested to hear how this track sounds if you do a bit more work on it.

    Regards

    Eric

    I appreciate that you took two whole comments to give me some feedback, I might have to go back to this track for some finalizing, it is simple. Thanks again for leaving some feedback, peace

    Well, I agree with Danke that this track shows great promise. I see from your profile that you play several instruments, but not sax. So, I'm assuming that the sax sound is either a VST or a loop. Getting a VST saw to sound right is a real challenge in my experience. I think some processing might help with that on this track, specifically some reverb.

    In the spirit of constructive advice, here's my suggestions on the track. First, it sounds to me like everything has been quantized. Very rigid timing. Jazz needs to be more fluid. Not just the sax lead, but also the drums, bass, and particularly the Rhodes comping. Assuming you played in the Rhodes chords, try fine-tuning the midi timing on them, and don't make all the notes in the chord sound at exactly the same time.

    Drum track needs work. Is too simple. I'm a drummer and I suck at doing drum tracks from scratch which is why I tend to use midi loops and drum instrument VSTs. But I think you did program this, so you have a decent start. Adjust timing. Try adding a swing groove to it if you have that available in your DAW. See how that feels. I'd experiment shifting the kick drum a few milliseconds early, and the snare a few milliseconds late. Need some fills. Try adding a ride cymbal for the second part of the track. Get more variation in the drum part. I'd EQ the drums a bit as well.

    Try adding more activity and syncopation in your bass line. It has parts where you have that already, but not enough. The bass line with only one note on each downbeat in each measure for much of the track kind of drags down the feel of the music. Try delaying at least some of the bass notes by a few milliseconds to help establish the groove. Audition the track using only the bass and drum parts to see if they work together.

    Rather than repeat the sax melody lines a second time, try layering over a piano (pitched above the chords) instead. Will give more variation and maintain interest.

    I have more comments but the length exceeds the 3000 character limit set by Looperman, so will put then in a second comment.

    Eric

    very cool tune...on my humble opinion with a more proper mix and producing it could be much better...for example at 2.15 there is a slight sax voice as begins the next tune...I know that one of the hardest thing to end a song...here you chose not a best option I think...fade away should be a better choice...on my humble opinion...

    handshake, Danke

    Thanks, I'll head back to this track for finalizing. I usually go with a fade out for tracks, but on this one I tried experimenting with bending the pitch at the end. Thanks for the feedback, peace

Description : Do not freak out just because this is jazz! There's also blues, rock, funk and a little hip hop in it to break up the deep, chillout jazz sections - gets particularly rocking then funky at the end. Main bassline (the track's foundation) is recycled leftover slide resonator guitar parts detuned one octave to make a slide bass sound. Also features: piano, violin, hammered dulcimer, organ, ethereal pad guitar, bass guitar, jazz/blues/rock electric guitar and multiple programmed acoustic drumkits. This was difficult to make at times as I thought I needed more leads parts eg from sax or trumpet. But I'm happyish with the end result. I expect very little interest in this as it's both jazz and long jazz. But it's also an unusual type of genre-mixing jazz. So, leave your thoughts, good or bad, if you like...

Description : This song highlights a few different styles of jazz. First it starts with a kinda early 20s and 30s groove. Than it melds into a New Orleans style. Than into a sort of Maynard Ferguson big band jazz/rock groove, and finishing off with the 20s and 30s style again, all held together with some cool horns and bass. All n all, it's...Pretty Cool! Hope you like

Description : This track contains only free loops from Stayonbeat.com and several loops from Looperman artists (listed below). I "made a promise" that my next track will be use a lot of jazzy loops - well, i done with this track, for the great sadness of jazz lovers or experts i think - i fear they will never forgive me. :) While my ISP launches my internet out of the Earth system for a long time, i had to face the fact that i dont have too much downloaded jazz loops on my computer, so i think no wonder that this one is sounds like if i smoke some marihuana while making it. But hey, who cares, i like the result - it reminds me the (maybe only) really funny episode of "Breaking Bad", where Pinkman uses some heroin and flyes up with an idiotic smile on his face - that chapter is priceless. :D
I dont think this one needs a vocal, but ofcourse you can use it if you want, and as always, just write and i will give any support as i can. Any feedback welcomed too as always. Enjoy! UPDATE 2015.10.24.: improved audio quality - lower lows, higher highs. Now in 256kbps!

Description : "Oh no - not jazz metal! You're not supposed to mix those genres together." Yes, but someone's got to and the musical gods have chosen me for the difficult task. 9 mins of instrumental jazz metal - damn I sure know how to write a hit song - US No 1 here I come. Anyway - there's some dark, swinging groovy jazz, with Rhodes and guitar as the main instruments, for a few minutes and then some haunting, thumping evil breaks loose. Look out for the powerful synth horn sound. And then it just gets heavier and heavier before returning to some nice chillgroove funky mystery jazz. Instruments played and/or programmed: electric guitar, bass guitar, electric cello, multiple programmed acoustic drumkits, filtered strings, Rhodes, big synth bass, evil synth horn and a few other assorted synths. I assume this has too much jazz for metallers and too much metal for jazzers. So, only for weirdoes like me who enjoy both. This will surely be too odd for most people but I like to think it's pretty interesting and powerful. Let me know how its weirdness worked for you...

Description : Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim. This particular piano arrangement is from one of jazz sheet piano books I found on scribd. The electric piano is MrRay22 plugin which I played on Casio CDP220 digital piano. This is also a new piece that I learned today so it was quite tricky to get a proper touch at places and overall make the entire thing sound anywhere realistic. I tried many times and this was probably the best take. Also I am relatively new to playing latin piano music. I didn't manipulate any notes after recording - instead I added few virtual vintage amps. I choose jazz but it is a bossa nova latin style. Enjoy and feel free to comment and download.
