I understand that you adore me. But you need not show it so much. It's actually more annoying than cute.
A word of advice: If you're older than 4, being mean to the girls you like will not get you any play so you should probably develop a new flirting tactic.
I don't know what you are using to make these with, sounds like the maschine or however its spelt.
these aren't terrible, the sounds you picked to use aren't the best, but that's my ear and the pitching of them sounds a bit off to my ear.
drums aren't terrible, the kicks need more presence, and the snare needs more snap. it does sound like it was quantized (which means snapped to be on perfect time, if you didn't know). part of what makes a great beat imo, is the natural swing that comes from slight human errors
mostly I would just work on mixing, the beat had good progression. everything else takes time and effort. but for a first go, I can hear potential.
don't mind Monk, if I remember his first beat he dropped here was actually just a Tragedy Khadafi beat
lmao dude, you are wrong. do a good research
nice. I been using FL Studio for the last 5 years or so. its pretty handy once you figure the essentials out and theres a lot more to it then most people think
just keep exploring the plug in (compressors, vsts, eqs and what not) then branch out from the stock sounds and gather up a bunch of your own unique drum kits.
I think its best to build up your own library of drum sounds, and work with those. but there are plenty of drum kits you can download, just doesn't have an authentic vibe like when you create your own
The first time beat dosent sound bad at all, the bassline sounds good however as Mason mentioned yyou could have used better sounds to compliment each other. I also feel that the sound levels are really low, drums & kicks should bang & the bassline should thump. You might wanna fuck with the eq for that.
The violinical beat was good imo esp towards the middle/end with the progression of the elements of sounds you were using. Both may be missing a simple element here & there but overall not bad for your 1st joints. Just work on eq'ing to make your joints bang. In due time you will get better & master your craft & possibly even develop you own signature sound as I did when I was comminng up.
I myself don't mess with cpu software for music, I like hands on creation but possibly in the near future look to evolve in FL or some other vst's.
Ill be looking forward BB to see how you progess in your production. Add me on reverbnation. peace
Search FL Studio youtube vids for tips on whichever version of FL you use. That would be the best thing to do when starting out. Absorb as much knowledge you can and dig thru the help section as well on the program.
Thanks so much for the feedback you guys!!!
Also... what is your artist name on Reverbnation? Apparently "Mantis" is a popular name. There's a ton of them. lol
