God DAMN!!! Where the hell did you get these samples???
Listenin to ants right now… thats a PHAT snare!!! and the base drum aint that bad either, sounds very “live”! hehe the melody aint too bad either Damn, make some dope lyrics and i’ll be listening to this alot.
Checking out your chariots now… not bad, not bad at all cute trumpet by the way hehe this one does get a lil repetitive… maybe change some of the chords now and then, other than that, i love the beat!
again, very sweet drums!
keep it coming…
ps: what sample pack did you get these sounds from?
I’m missing some base in the “chariots of fire” tune. It seems a little “thin”. Maybe you could find some plain bass sample and enhance the current bassline. I would also suggest that you use the equalizer to make the sound more “full”.
In “ants in the afterbirth” you use a Vanessa Mae - Classical Gas sample wich you have chopped up some and then reasembled in another way. Only thing is that you hear the gaps pretty well. Maybe you could experiment with some delays and reverbs to mask these spots.
I’ll finish off with a little tip that will come in handy when you make hiphop beats and stuff. Buy some rap single that includes some kind of “vocals only” or acapella version. Use that on your beats to see what it might sound like if you actually had an MC flowing over you beats. hehe. I have the “Ghetto Superstar” single with Pras and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. I have used those vocals on countless tracks. Takes some time to timestretch the sample to get them in the right BPM… (Maybe not very usefull but it’s fun.)
