Coffee Break Coffee Break

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Awesome drum programming/glitching! I really dig the sounds you got going here. Overall the tracks is really nicely put together, although I feel it lacks a bit of motion.

The build up is great, but then it sort of ends. I think a nice contrasting section would really benefit the track. Possibly something softer, less glitching, or maybe a really speedy drummachine section.


Rhoder responds:

I was thinking about that... but I lost inspiration for it. I'll make a longer track next time. :)

Good job sequenced, you really made a gorgeous track! The track overtook me with it's warm, inviting tone. The rain sample in the intro really adds a lot of nice high end frequency, although I think it could be better if it's something that fades in and out as the song progresses.

The chord progression is really great, and when the strings kick in, the track really shines. My only problem with the song is it severely lacks any kind of dynamic. If a composition like this, dynamic is your friend. Start out quietly, and build up in volume and timbre to really drive the point home.

Lovely stuff. I enjoyed the classic sounding synth patches you used. I feel like this would work well for a background track in Bladerunner or something of the like. Another great touch is the way the track seamlessly goes from a short staccato sound to long legato sound with the synths overlapping with each note.

Great work Mich, make moar


Mich responds:

Hey Siney!

Glad you like it! I started out with just the pad synth (NI Massive) and then played some higher pitched notes, decided to clone the synth and fiddle a bit. So both synths are kind of borne from the same thing.

I haven't seen Bladerunner but I imagine the mood kind of matches with this track, then!

Glad you liked that overlapping. I kind of had the idea of making one of these endless descending melodies, but settled somewhere halfway through building that.

Thanks for the compliments sir, and I'll make moar once I get moar inspiration! :)

lovely stuff, I'm really digging your bass tone. I like the subtle use of the bitcrusher, really gives the guitar a cool sound.

Now i wanna make some tunes like this, it's quite inspiring. I look forward to hearing your new album man :D

Lapse responds:

Thanks man. Always appreciate you listening. I've been experimenting with various Bitcrushers + guitar tones lately. I have another song that is another experiment with the crushed melodies. There's something about it that I really like. It creates some interesting spaces.

Hit the sound forge!

Wow

Straight up Pantera right here. I gotta say the whole progression of the song was nice, it kept me interested and wanting to hear more. The production was nice, I especially love the guitar tone on the rhythm and the lead.

Great programming on the drumkit, but I feel like there it a bit too much high end on the cymbals cutting through the mix, other than that everything is spot on.

...and damn that is a sick solo and some great riffing.

I won't forget you <3


Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Thanks very much for the review, dude.
I hear ya on the cymbals. I had to put sooo much stank on them, for ANY impact. Otherwise they were flat and not effective at exclaiming the points they needed to >( I need new shit.
The drums are a constant battle with me. haha.

Thanks again, bro. Glad you dug it\m/

Funny I come across this. I was just listening to the song last night. I have to say you pull off the vocals very good. It almost sounds like maynard himself at points.

Your vocals are quite nice, but I have to say it was a bit shake-y at time, and out of time with the guitar part. I'm not sure if you recorded them separately or not, but try and record with a click-track to keep yourself in time. I know I always have trouble keeping time while strumming chords.

As for mixing, I liked the dynamics of it all. I'd like to see a more developed cover/remix, with all sorts of instruments. Keep it up man :)


Nedak responds:

Thanks for the critique!

If I had a way to record my drumkit I'd totally be down on re-recording it, but sadly I don't so I had to stick to this acoustic cover.

I learned the song on the guitar and developed the vocals in about 2 hours so I can totally see why you make the critiques you did.

As for the timing, there are a few parts where the timing is a little off. That's partially because I'm a self-taught guitarist so every time I try to mess with a metronome I never get it to the BP/S that I want. I'm starting to teach myself music theory though, so hopefully that works better with recordings.

Thanks again.
