hard feedback on this please
on: June 19, 2015, 19:46:13
i picked this track up again, remixed it just now
and now i am looking for pretty unpleasant and hard feedback on this mix and music.

just because i want to get somewhere more  with it, make it better
https://soundcloud.com/dutchbeat-1/the-real-miraclewip-by-dutchbudhabeat-met-judy-special-vixmix
i know it is too sweet, but i would like all pointers, even if it very negative

I took this up again, in response  to a request for Christmas music  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
the season seems to have started early this year

ho, ho, ho

but to be honest i like this track myself, and hope for feedback on how to improve it

music from Budhabuilding and me, vocal from Mrs. DB


me, myself, and Pie

Only thing I've got is maybe change the bass synth? It sounds too harsh as it is and to me is distracting. Smooth it out a little, turn it into a sine? (I'm not that familiar with synth waves)

thanks, Haven, that is a good point,
me being a (very) old synthesizer musicmaker, i Always prefer that sawtooth or square wave

but indeed, it may be uncalled for and not fitting this, and a sine wave may be better here, a more rounded sound to match the music

thanks!!

I would agree with Haven to soften the synth sound a little  (I know he was far more specific).. And in a more broad sense, I think a more dreamy feel would suit the song better...

I really like it I must say - I know my critique is very simple.. but I do think with more atmospheric and ethereal treatment, it would be very interesting.....

And obviously just one opinion.. But my instant reaction...

Look forward to hear it develop...

Hey Dutchy..

I find it really nice to listen to! It really has potential! I would work on the intro! So the whole slides in easier. A sea heading shore for example would fit in perfect as an intro I think. I do agree with the others also about the bass. Maybe lowering the mix would do the trick. But I would experiment with other bass synths also like Haven235 suggested! And I like the sound of the vox but I think it can be a bit clearer! Man I listened to the song many times. Really really like it a lot man. The melody is so catchy. And I think if you work this out with real instruments it would work really well also!

Very nice Dutch!
The answers are always there!!

Hi kitcheneers and kitchenettes,

this feedback is good, much too kind also (i know),

but thanks, Zedd, Haven, and Boudewijn,
i like to do everything you said, and will work on all of it, that is great advise

and @ Boudewijn..... when you say, real instruments, would you be prepared to play (guitar) or sing (lend your voice) to this....

sorry for asking  :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[, but THAT would really make my day, and i think Budhabuilding will feel the same

just trying  :-X :-X ;D ;D ;D

Hi Db,

The problem i have is i come from a totally different musical sphere so have no idea if this is club style or whatever.

That would be my first question as the producer - where is aimed at? Casual listener, club, etc. That for me would dictate the sounds i used. I think there are a mix of sounds currently which go in two directions. The bass and the lead synth in the 1.40s/2.20s sound club like to me, the others sound more casual listener. Personally i would choose a direction and then tweak the sounds to be more specific to that. Don't know if you got Luke's latest email, but he requested a certain style of synth, etc. I'd apply the same process to this.
Song wise; I like the melodies and the basic groove. I think the vocal/lyrics could be a bit more interesting - but again, this would come down to the nature of the song i guess.

Cheers,

Digger

Great catchy intro, nice solid beat. Very nice voice of Judy!
I like the sound and instrumentation, they carry the mysteriousness of the
real miracle to me. I really enjoyed listening, really have no suggestions?
What's this tune intended for? I can imagine it can be used for a lifestyle
program on tv or something. Nice work!!! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

Hi fellow-kitcheneers and beautiful  :o kitchenettes, very good feedback
all of it
i realise this mix may not be very specific and exciting

but i think (@ Digger) we are aiming at background movie music more than club music

that was what this is for  :P :P :P :P, and yes, that is serious (just to be sure)  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hi!
I personally really like the hard bass-synth, it complements some of more "stale" sounds you got going! About the mix, I think it's a solid mix except that it lacks something to make it MORE livley, maybe you should get some more high frequency sounds? The singing seems to be going up and down in volume aswell (it made me forget about the music and focus on that instead).

Overall I really like the track and except for those minor things it's an awesome mix!

With love <3

Hi Boudewijn.... ;D ;D ;D;D ;D ;D 8) 8) 8) :o :o :o :o :o (DB trying to act cool) but.....if you would be prepared to add some guitar work that i could mix along on this, i am sure i can give the track that extra bit of liveliness it needs, i agree with Beppe on that, some sort of atmospheric lead guitar-ish type of thing to mix on to this...well anything you would be prepared to do guitarwise....i would very thankful for that...but hey i can pay with karma points  ;D ;D ;D ;D i have loads of those...

that would be just great!!!! (how would it work, can i send you a wav or an mp-3 and you copuld play to that??? sorry for being so: brutaal, maar deze kans laat ik natuurlijk niet lopen :-)

we are going redo / fix the vocals and Marti gave me some double compression tip on how to get the vocals better....i want to try what he shared with me via a PM

thanks guys!!!!!!!!
