Description : Made on iphone's Beatmaker... I started making this after taking some DnB drum loops I had made and slowed em down 50%.
This is my 4th computer made track, and I'm trying to focus on panning and mastering. So I'm particularly interested to hear feedback on those aspects. I compressed the drum tracks a little, but it still seems a little loud... any advice?
Also I question the tabla/congas section, I'm not sure it really fits into the groove. So if you think I should pull it, say so.

Loop credits: Dextdee-horn melody, Jinxedjunkie-fatty bassline, Djelfo-vox sample, Minor2go-vox sample, fusionroomrob-tablas and congas
Only thing I did was the drums.

    Well if you're interested in laying down rhymes on it, I can probably come up with an arrangement more conducive to that... When I composed the piece I never really planned on someone laying something down, so it might change at weird times/ be a little overbearing for vocals. Thanks for the fav and DL, and PM me if you want a custom arrangement!

    I agree with dude about this being a sonic journey... Its a great listen i love the creativity maybe the clap EQ brought to the one thousand a little and certain other instruments there... it all depends on what you want people to get from the track i think instrumentally this is extremely creative love it, keep it up

    Thanks for the review. I think I'm gonna give the whole drum line a solid reworking since it's the most consistently critiqued part of the song. I'll see what I can do about those claps!
    Thanks for the review!

    YEah I like this track, It has a different feel to it. The bending horn synth lead is progressive and interesting. I think the pan is good. I also think the drum levels are, for the most part good. I am diggin the pithched down cymbal, but I think it could come down a little. And the vocal samples are a nice touch to an epic piece. Great job, man!

    It's a little late, but thanks for the review! Thanks especially for the feedback on the drums... I'm giving them a reworking soo, and I will definitely bump em down in the mix a bit. Thanks again!

    Thanks for the listen! Yea the Iphone app is called beatmaker, and it was only $10! I actually don't have a computer that can really run an actual DAW so I got this just wanting to mess around... found looperman and ended up deciding to take this all seriously. Thanks again for the listen!

    This is a great sonic journey! Really creative use of loops by slowing them by half! I think the panning on the drums sounds really good. And those congas/tablas have to stay! The bass was a little distorted, but it didn't ruin the song by any means. The mastering sounds pretty good overall, with good frequency ranges present. Nicely done my friend!

    Thanks for the review spiv... Glad you noticed the panning! I'm still experimenting with that kinda stuff. It's something you don't really think about playing music live.

    Others have mentioned the Bass, and I'm trying to figure out how best to fix the problem. Mastering and such is all still new to me so I've been trying (and failing) with a few things so far.

    But the learning experience has been great!
    Thanks again!

    Heheh.. You know that a dnb loop is basically a hip hop loop times 200 percent right?
    lol

    Awesome.

    You sir are really cool.

    I really like all the input you put on the forums and what not.
    But I don't like to take it easy on cats (not a literal terminology or profiling to your avatar, but something I call all musicians- and yes loopers are musicians) I am a little concerned with the levels. Awesome work with kudlips I think?
    Anyway.. Yer bass sounds like it's clipping, but there's a ton of headroom, which is totally cool, I know this isn't post production, but I think maybe sometime in your future it maybe something worthwhile looking into?
    I typically render a track with nothing clipping, sometimes tracks that are really extreme like Death Metal Drum and Bass and ambient textures I render almost -20!
    And then I bring them in again and focus on compression and/or imaging and whatnot.
    It gets into craziness of mastering, but I am that dude that is always messing with the car stereo lolz

    You got vision man.
    That counts for a lot.
    I dig it.
    Already showing diversity and talent.
    Awesome!

    Hey, thanks for the review, and glad you like my input on the forums! I can get a little long winded, but only cuz I wanna make sure I'm being clear and not steppin on too many toes!
    kudlips? You lost me there... What's kudlips?
    No worries about being harsh! I asked for reviews on my mastering and you gave me exactly what I asked for! You're totally right, it is clipping (you mean the bass drum right? not the bassLINE?), and I need to go back and revamp the drums all together to eliminate some of that.
    I think I've got the "headroom" because I added compression to the drums... but that doesn't fix my clipping problem. Still gotta figure out how to fix that. I'm really pumped to start working with a real DAW that will have a better visual EQ so I can really refine my mastering techniques. This really was a huge help though! I'll be updating a remastered version ASAP!

    Very different and relaxed, just felt good. I dig the distorted drum breaks. And yeah that switch from relaxed tribal day to a celebrative tribal night was just awesome. It felt like a day in the Savannah in fast forward. The EQ sounds fine, specifically for this track. Im sure though that you had a great learning experience through this. Thats very good, and I think this is a significant step forward for ya. Very nice Thanx, very nice.

    Thanks scythe! always good to have you comment on my tracks! I'm planning on giving it a bit of a remaster in the near future. But until then my brother in mobile music production! I'm off to review one of yours!

    wow you made this on iphone? haha man i didnt think those programs were this advanced. this is got like a slowed down old school hip hop type feel to it. love the track change around 2 minutes. kinda goes into like a tribal sorta sound. the more i listen the more i love it. really cool set of loops you through in there, they all work perfectly together. i personally think the congas/tablas are a good choice, leave them in! at first i thought the claps didnt have enough highs in the EQ but after listening it kinda adds a darker feel to the track the way they are. faving this, was very interesting and cool listen

    Thanks for the review! Actually, to be fair I alter a lot of my loops in audacity first... get the BPM to match, stretch out those drums (which is why that clap is so low, it's at 50%) I'm still considering messing with the drums a bit, so who know's maybe I'll eq in the claps just a touch higher. We'll see. thanks for the fav!

    my advice, leave it be. but look into some mastering tutorials anyways. that was a pretty cool journey, if you want something to make it a little better though, i would give it a bit more range, the frequencies sound kinda crushed right now (a disadvantage partially made obvious by the disortion on the drums). when it comes to panning, i think itd be cool if you had a different chord note on the other side of the wind instrument(? sounds like a synthesized oboe). but overall, that was a pretty cool journey sir, so i salute you

    Thethanx
    Reply by Thethanx

    Thanks cyber! always appriciate your advice, and actually I owe you a thanks as well, as I got the idea for the drums using your forum post. I'll see what i can do about throwing another note on the other side of that... but the horns/oboe whatever the hell they were are a sample, so I may just have to pull another instrument in to pull that off. Thanks for the review!
