That hi-hat should sound a little bit "wet" in my opinion. It stands out a bit too much, very dry and like a walnut...if that makes sense. It has a nice tone/sound to it though, nicely orthodox. I'm a fan of big sounding kicks, I'm sure this would rumble any club it gets played at.
Too much sliding between the notes towards the mid-end, in my opinion. Made you go off-pitch quite a bit. I understand how you might be trying to add a bit of your own flavor to it, but the...I guess "emotional" voice kinda-sorta makes it seem like a try-hard effort. I'm not a fan of it. It also seems like this had more voice emphasis way more than guitar. Not sure if there was someone playing it behind/to the side of you, but I would give it a bit more presence. Overall, I like the song, though! This is just my opinion, it may or may not matter to you, it doesn't have to.
Shitty microphone sorry haha. We recorded on Audacity. I am able to turn up the sound of the guitar?
Really like the bass texture, but I would shorten it's introduction, at 0:34, to 8 bars to solidify it's badass-ery and instead of ending on it's final note, have it cut out on the 7th bar and have, maybe, a snare or something strike there.
Everything marches along with each other. Very clean sound. I'm sure I'll have a different opinion when I hear the vocals, but: The guitar seems to be the star of the show at every fill, it might be interesting to have the bass to a quick downward scale during a fill with the guitar palm muted to emphasize the initial attack of the bass notes.
All in all, this is a great track. 5 stars even without the vocals.
Loving how everything isn't cookie-cutter, focusing on off-beat/2nd beat variation. Really liking the synths, the tiny details, and the overall feel of this song. Excellent job!
Very very nice. Noticed some clipping though. Then again, this is a demo...
Thanks man! Where do you notice the clipping?
Vocals could be amped up a bit imo. Sounds like this wasn't properly mastered, kinda sounds cluttered and the drums have almost no air to breath (stereo wise). Then again...this is a demo. Liked the lyrics though.
Thanks for the criticism, this is definitely just a demo.
Nice Melody, but the song has a bit of clipping in it.
Here's something I do. Lower your computer's volume to 50%, including Wave.
Overall, this is a nice song, it just needs a bit of mastering.
Got the beat down, but the wubwub could use a bit of character.
Hmm... I see... Thanks man,
I didn't think of that!
Love the melody
I feel like it's the end of something huge, and everything's alright now. Put me in a really nice mood. Thanks.
