[distorted/crushed]White Noise- In the Crusher

Hey everyone, I've been fiddling with something that's faster and more distorted than anything I've tried in, like, a year now. To me this feels unfinished, but I'm not sure what to do with it. I was thinking about trying to clear up the mix (not too much, I just bussed out that lead before rendering and now I think it's too loud, so I'd pull that back a bit) and write some more pattern variations (all the 'glitching' and so such is a by-product of the midi data and the distortion used, so that's a big part of how this sounds). Not sure though, and would welcome any input, even if you don't have any ideas, just letting me know if I'm on the right track would be a big help (I don't have much of a frame of reference for this stuff except old Justice and videogame music). Many thanks.

Fun melodies and modulations. I think you're on the right track

Criticisms:
1: Sounds spatially narrow in my headphones. Could do with some panning and maybe some spatial movement like a phasing/flanging/vibrato effect or two.

2: I'd like a bit more variation in the structure of the parts, maybe drop some bits out here and there, maybe introduce the drums differently... At 1:40ish you do this, I could have done with something like that earlier and a little more frequently throughout (without spoiling the flow of course).

3: I'd maybe like some more timbrel variation in terms of the flavours of distortion.

Re: [distorted/crushed]White Noise- In the Crusher

I haven't been working on much music lately, but I'm still hoping to finish this by the end of this month. I spent an hour just moving stuff around and adding a few new distortions basically, was hoping to see if this addressed some of your suggestions brb. Of course, still hoping to hear from everyone else too!

Re: [distorted/crushed]White Noise- In the Crusher

you are on right way, everything expect bell after 1 min is too muddy was this intentional ? maybe "guitar" needs to be ducked under bell, also

Re: [distorted/crushed]White Noise- In the Crusher

well first off i think the snare and the hats are too low man.... im not feeling the 1, 2 kick snare pattern at the beginning - it sounds too fast imo for that type of drum beat

it gets interesting at anbot 1.20, the breakdown, bit, i like the synths there and twinkly xylophone (orwhatever samples come in) - sounds good when the drop comes back in, the drum pattern is much nicer....

Low end, to me ears is really nice throughout, nice mixture of clarity and warmth...

i dunno man, if i were you id scrap the entire first bit, up to the breakdown... the second half kills it (still needs louder snare and hats tho....too lo-fi IMO), the first half, not so much, and in this era of low attention spans the beginning section has to KILL

Re: [distorted/crushed]White Noise- In the Crusher

Alright, so my checklist for next time I sit down is going to be double check the low-end (I'll isolate it under around 200 hz and make sure it's clear down there, I do that before release of anything, just haven't gotten around to it), pump up the drums, and re-work the intro/first drop.

I'll double check the clarity of the stuff, but some mud is intentional, I wanted to get away from doing the squeaky clean mixes it feels like I've been doing for the better part of a year now. Was starting to feel like I was stuck in a rut. Thanks for the input guys, hopefully I'll get some time to look over this again this week and I can have a new version up this weekend.

Re: [distorted/crushed]White Noise- In the Crusher

I wasn't able to do very much to this, I took out 8 bars (one chord prog) worth of intro, grooved up the drums in the first part, dialed back the distortion a bit, and added some movement to the main pad. Listening to it for the first time in a few days, I think it may be just enough to push this in the right direction. If all's well, I'll master it in the next few days and post the public release here.

This is the release, free download if you'd like. I don't think it's perfect, but it gets the point across reasonably well and I have a lot of other irons in the fire right now, so best to call this done and move on for now.
