Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

Imo I thought it was good! Got my head bobbin from the beginning til the end. The only thing I will change is the kick. Either try to mixing it differently by having more energy on the transient or change it.

Good job

purdy kewl. Straight house vibe, not too bad over my speakers (tho my room treatment is awful), but not bad.

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

Thanks everyone...

After listening to it on, iPhone earbuds, the snare and kick need work.

I don't mind the kick being kinda flabby, it's what I was shooting for, but the snare is lost to the kicks upper end frequencies.

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

Hey man.

This track has potential specially the little acid sound that floats around.

Though i think the kick is too loud in the mix and the snare and other percs in general need turning up or need to be made more prominent in the mix.

The trippy vox type fx tripped me out...

Nice build-up, lovely swing on the percussion. I found it curiously empty though despite having quite a full lead in places.

The glitched/vocoder style FX were good.

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

Pro tip: they ain't really vocals, just sound design warped into sounding vocal like, then I just name the track what it kinda sounds like and that causes the brain to go, "oh I know what it's saying now...neat"

Or something like that

Unfortunately I destroyed the whole thing last night trying to make it better.... Yayy!!

Saving as is your friend.

I save as after every major change.

Normally my finished tracks are v120ish finished...

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

Hey man, a little low pass on that kick would go a long way!
Add some transient shaper and drive on that clap, and a longer reverb maybe.
Otherwise it good! I liked that boingy sound when you hi passed the drums around 1:58.
And the glassy lead is quite nice! Although it seems to lack a good rythm after the break, seems a little too random.
I actually like that's it's a little minimal, I need to work on that.

Oh yeah I save... was on save #89 or so but for some reason, the Aether reverb on one track goes completely bonkers.

It's not cracked

It's an important element so I'll need to go back and find where it's not an issue. Problem is, went all they way back to version #75 and issue was still there.

Seems like my Aether reverb needs reinstalled

Your other track "You Mess Me Up" is more tasty (but I have a bias for analog sounds).

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

Not working for me, but there's some good elements in there.
You are right the kick is very flabby, for me it doesn't work so good on this track, taking up too much space. Almost sucking the mid range frequencies. Too dominating. I think if you want to focus on the kick, then do that and reduce some of the other sounds.
The vox glitches are effective, although seem a little of beat (maybe intentional) could be tightened up a little.
The flow feels off for me personally, I like techno to flow and get my head bobbing.
I think if you tightened some of the different elements up with some eq/comp, sped the tempo up a little it would work better.
Tough love comment, but others will no doubt disagree with my opinion

The progress is very slow which makes the songs a little but unintersting try to add some elements..
but the intro is pretty ncie and the build up

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

besides being a bit broad in spectrum and mushy, the bass and the hats and all are so quantized they just meld together and in the beginning in particular the sounds give a big pumping feel with the panned synth in there. The more I listen the hihat is what kinda makes the kick sound like someone lost an egg shaker in it....if nudge it and maybe change the source sample/sound it would bounce a lot more I think. My 2c.
Nice voerall, and I love the pseudo vocals.

Re: [techno] Waxweather-Hey Change Your Reality

We're still talking about this? Lol

Thanks everyone for the feedback, I tried making it better but ran into an issue with Ableton's latest version and not reading automation. It completely destroyed my hours of automation I had on a track's reverb which was a very important element.

I'm focused on my graphic art at this time, gotta divide my time or I'd be a zombie lol.

I might not get back to this one to fix it, I'll take what you all have as critiques and use it on my next track

Thanks all
