New version of my tune!

Hello, my tune 'Two Drops' gets a new drum and some new sounds. Still long way to finally say it's finished, but slowly getting there.

The mid part with the mantras will soon be accompanied by a female vocals, if I manage to find someone to sing along. Production is still in deep water at the moment.

Please tell me your thoughts, any suggestions and critics welcome :Smile3:

What’s there so far sound very very nice indeed but it also sounds suppressed. It’s a good base for a tune that’s just waiting to explode in to its full swing. A little to beat around the bush rather than beat out a rhythm but this is just my taste I guess. As I say though what you have gotten down so far is very good which is why I would really like to hear this one pushed as far as it could be. You have wetted my lips. Ooo err:silly:

Thanx psyfi :Smile3:

I agree it's not fully swinging, in fact Im waiting for the vocals to be recorded and the new definitive flute lines re-recorded. From there I will start working on all arrangements to make the tune finally take off.

On the production side I will have some help from my mate with whom I collaborate, this version is a temporary rough mix, a draft in other words. That's why it sounds this bad. I didn't compress or EQd much for example.

But hey, glad you like it and you find it interesting so far :Smile3:
After years trying to write something decent, this one is something Im proud of.

Just one question, could you please explain what exactly you mean by this sentence, my english has some tight limits sometimes :unsure:

Yo mate. Beat around the bush, as in, someone who is talking around a subject rather than talking directly about the issue at hand. By this I meant the the tune hadn't yet really gotten going and that I would like to hear it do so. From what I have heard so far I felt there was no need to hold back with this tune and just push it as far as you can becuase what you have already is a really good foundation for a tune. Some big drums and a deep bass line will really get this one going.:speaker: Lots or room for rising leads and sweeps and the flute that you were mentioning. Should be a good'en when you and your mate are done with it.:Smile3:

I should say you shouldn't regard my words as what you should be doing next. This is just me saying what I personally like to hear. My own taste and preferences. The tune has to grow as you see fit and not to pander to the expectations of others, otherwise all music would end up the same..

Looking forward to hearing what you do next with it.

Peace

not sure if it will be helpful, but
a) i've found mixing as you go is the best way to do things. that way the tune is slowly evolving mix wise, and you're not left at the end with a project thats already killing the CPU and isnt even mixed yet.
b) i also find it best to produce things to the max before presenting them to others for feedback on psyforum and others places. the better the production is the better everyone else can help. i'm learning myself every day more and more how important production is, as whats the point in having music if you cant hear it properly?

Cheers DaRgOn :Smile3: glad you like.

Fromem_Ory - thanx for advise, Im not a producer really and Im learning a bit, so far Alex will look after my production. See, Im more a composer. More in the traditional way. But I totally agree with you about mixing while you write. Soon I'll do that more as I am starting to think it's the best way to make music on my own. I used to play with bands before, so that I have a different approach to which Im too used to.

about the second point I thought many people here start posting their tunes, even before they are finished, to get some useful feedback, weather positive or not as anything helps. And sometimes they are not at their best yet (the tunes I mean).

Psyfi - Im not really looking for directions to what I should do next. Again any opinion is highly welcome and I like to listen other's views. I had occasions in which some friends told me about some arrangements that could have been done and those clicked immediatly, not all of them mind you. Just those that I thought fit in what I was trying to say.

Thanx so far guys

Ciao, that's Mr Alberto. A lovely chap from Columbia, music professor or whatever you call it in english. He kindly offered to record his flute, I then used a bit of Omboyz delay to make it little more interesting.

We recorded it in my bedroom with his own mic that I don't remember what it was and fed it through my MOTU soundcard.

Glad you like it.. a presto :lol:
