New version up. Tweaked some sounds quite a bit, tried to tweak the mix (removed unneeded low frequencies etc), changed some tones around and various other small fixes. Is it any better? Old version below.
Not in a genre a listen to a lot, but some quick thoughts.
Intro sounds very clean, tight. I’m a dirt fan, but I think it fits the genre.
On the melody riff, I know it says minimalism in the title, and this might be a “Well, if I had written it” thing, but if you want a bit more movement in the riff, (yeah, I know what minimalism means, I just choose to ignore it), seems like one of the phrases is crying out to end on a G#, which would make it sound pseudo-happy for a brief second. (Like “C#-C-F, C#-C-F, C#-C-F#, C#-C-G#”)
The drums at 2.00 have a nice backbeat.
The higher pitched thing at 2.33 enters a little weird, but after a while it starts to sound pretty good, so I don’t know.
The squelch around 3.50 fits nice.
The grand stop at 5.06ish sounds like it should start just a tiny bit earlier to me.
Ending sounds fine.
Overall, I think this is mixed pretty well, written pretty good, nice sound to it.
You’re now officially my favourite feedback’er, and I’m pretty impressed that you hit the right tones for the synth, tbh
I’ll try your riff out.
The higher pitched thingie is white noise, a bit overused in this kind of music, but I liiiike it.
And thank you for the overall, that’s really what I’m after. Still need to squeeze more volume out of it though
Very nice. Definitely not within my domain of greatest knowledge, but it sounds good to me!
I liked the stereo image/mixing in this, everything has a really nice place in the mix, causing it all to mesh together well and even adding interest in itself. The depth field created with the different reverbs is pleasing as well.
Actually I’ve played on Ploink a couple times, as well as Deep and BLY
Only as DJ though
And the idea with the pretty energetic ending was so it could be looped so you could work the next track in at a similar “level” (most tracks start off pretty slow). Might be a bit too much though maybe
Edit: Personally I don’t think this track is very “exciting” so to speak, it’s decent but gets a bit boring. I’m just too focused on figuring out how to mix the sound properly these days. I feel I’m moving in the right direction though, so hopefully soon I can get back to focusing more on the tracks themselves
I really can’t give any very constructive feedback, since I really don’t know about mixing things - it sounds just fine to my ears. But the track itself I really like, although I have to admit it would need a little something, some variation somewhere after the first half or so, but I really do like this and some of the sounds are something I’ve been wanting to learn how to make. Thanks for posting
