Just getting started in music production :)
Very good. High production values and good instrumentation.The Major problem with your tracks is that they fail to provide enough intensity and dynamics to a point where the music is front and center. This would be fantastic for soundtracks or to paired with other forms of art, but as a solo piece, they often fail to draw in enough intensity.
>melodic, melancholic, dark electronic stuff.
Will return feedback!
I return feedback
I feel like it had lots of math rock drumming influences, which relay the minimalists keyboards forward. Other than that there is nothing really spectacular, but I know it's exceptionally difficult to standout in the electronica world :).
ok - K, Sweet. The Heart Is Black!
Finished and uploaded today.
>maybe progressive metal
a song I wrote last night
Catching a lot of comparisons in my mind to explosions in the sky (one of my favorite bands) but in some ways; more polished. It is quite "drone-y" but it has enough intensity to keep my focus. I actually feel you music has more places to go to than explosions in the sky because of its more buoyant nature.
In short: I realy realy realy like these tracks.
I feel if you produced some more indie pop (think the strokes; modest mouse) rockesque influences in your tracks; it would draw in a larger market of fans.
I'm running behind.
The track was virtually problem free except the beginning. The steel drum synth sounded disjointed and out of place.
Seriously the track was good but I really didn't like the synth at the begging.
Sure il do it
The Track really dose not fluctuate in intensity throughout which may be foreign to most fans of house (no drops=some people not wanting to dance to it) but that's just the way it goes. I personally enjoyed the tracks very much but if you are aiming to play your music in the club scene (I am going to assume you are) you may have to "do what everyone else is doing"
you could always market yourself as more of an experimental composser and less of a producer, throw some weird synths in and gain the respect of the patrican community :)
so im putting out this free ep tomorrow.
the over processed guitar actually sounds great. the heavy chorus works with them slides.
percussion is really nice. i would cut that last part tho. or add some more layers to it.
wow this is gorgeous. i will definitely check out your other songs today.
>electronic, ambient,experimental, droney soundscapes, noisy, IDM
I like how it's original and dose not follow common edm "stereotypes" and actually can be considered a completely new form of art.
Poppy; light; engaging; and most of all fun.
Il be first in line for your ep :)
Hey, I'm over at https://soundcloud.com/crrrl/ and really I'm just wondering if there's a quicker or easier way to demo songs.
I use protools right now which I realize is overkill for what I'm doing which is just demoing ideas. Is there something quicker to set up and easier to use? Thanks
>90's emo, indie rock, post punk
But it also has flaws.
I recommend you add vocals to your tracks, because at times; your tracks just feel like rap songs without rapping; I can assure you you can 1000 times farther taking a backseat to the rapper while making the beats than as a solo project.
>tropical house, hip-hop remixes
lets trade feedback
I really like the stop and go motion in the chorus of Way Down. Good stuff.
Here's something I started on the other day. I guess you could call it ambient but I'm not really qualified to determine what genre it is. I'm new to this type of production so any feedback is welcome.
Elephent Elements by Zoot Squad/UFame
I made the beat and I am the third verse.
This is really nice dude I want to start doing ambient tracks any tips for me just starting out I like bands like Neu! who fit 1 or 2 ambient songs among their mostly rock and roll album
Thanks, you mean like speed up tempo and add more emotion into the performance? I can definitely see us taking that route
>silly dance song
>mix of genres, up for collabing
I've found a ton of great music and people through these threads. I have a collab. coming out soon with someone from /MU I'm stoked for everybody to hurr.
Good beat and your rap skills are tight. I'm sorry to say that your only the 2nd best verse
>best verse 1
>second best verse 3 (you)
>bottom verse 2.
Yhea verse 2 kind of messed everything up.
I'm really new to ambient but from what I've learned so far it seems like layering many tracks, as well as reverb +post-delay can give the music a spacious sound. I feel like the complexity of the layers should modulate like an arc, kind of like how the track builds up then suddenly drops back to just piano. Also, keeping it simple musically, as boring as it seems, tends to sound better. I try to avoid using anything other than I, IV, V, and vii chords (maybe a ii somewhere).
thanks! to be honest neither am I, but it seemed fun (and to be honest kind of easy) to make
Just dropping off a trance track
not a fan of the production style man, sorry, it sounds like have good ideas, but the execution is done incorrectly, however, i do like the singing, if thats you i think you got something to be proud of.
>future hip hop, glitch stuff
>Drum and Bass
will reply to everything on sc! :D
Cheesy as hell but i can still enjoy it.
It really reminds me of kimya dawson (one of my favorite artists) so your doing a lot of things right.
Just make sure your comedy dose not draw away from your musical skills.
Ok, I'll bite.

Don't have much time to make electronic music atm but here's a short ripoff i made:
Pretty much a mix of autechre and aphex twin for the most part. Still have alot to learn :(
Oi. Chek mi shit out
i wish this was more clean if that makes sense? i dig the blues-y stuff but the "indie" stuff could use more work. nice voice. there's something about it for sure.
i am always super soft on this music idk i've always loved this kind of music so yay chill vibes the bongos own my soul and vagina
it's kind of boring but it still sounds nice
i hate when i forget the link. i like the vibe also it is recorded very crisply and nicely well done brah.

Newest track fellas!

im vibing to your flow. find a new vst for the keys though it sounded corny. drums sound good.
nice man loving the compression on your drums. some interesting sounds i'll check out your bandcamp.
anyways i'm entering a contest a club at my university is having for the best hip hop beat. I think i have a really hot sample but i'm struggling with the production. here's the loop I got so far any feedback would be great.
done with this track for sure now
Industrial Rap (With an E) Muzak
>instrumentals for rap artists
I enjoy the beats but your vocals need SERIOUS work. They sound atrocious I can't hear anything like honestly what went wrong. Also the lyrics are extremely bland.
Finally made a full length song!
I would really like some feedback on it :)
experimental hip/hop i guess
Would love some feedback on this latest tewn, would return some too.

This is pretty cool. Lovin' the grimy thing you got going on.
This is me and my drummer. I play the guitar, sing, and I play the bass. This track ain't finished yet, so.
This song is what happens when you fuck around wayyyyyyyy too much
>Lots of samples x Electronic Emotions
This needs to be listened to under the influence of anything and it will be fucking beautiful every time
This is a track I finished up the other day. It's my first proper attempt at an electronic track, being primarily a rock musician but I'm happy with it. If you give feedback on Soundcloud or give it a like, I'll be sure to return the favour.
>plunderphonics, vaporwave with vocals, experimental
New album next year
I'm really proud of this one.

Just finished off this track, I would appreciate a like if you enjoyed it or even more so just a listen, I shall reciprocate any comments
>heavy metal shit
please at least on thing i can improve on
I'm tired of circle jerking positive comments
intro to a song i made while in a soundcloud thread yestreday
I mean there isn't much to critique, nothing really intricate is going on, its pretty straight forward. Maybe watch your level when recording, I noticed some clipping/distortion.
I'm pretty much on the same wavelength as >>52255650
In the genre you're writing in, everything's a little too free-form and abstract to really have any guidelines to criticize by other than the atmosphere because the quality of ambiance is really subjective; atmosphere is kind of the meat-and-potatoes of what you're doing. You're doing it well. But like the other dude said, the only things you can really improve on or watch for outside of that are technical aspects like mixing and mastering, stuff like that.
>experimental, electronic-ambient, instrumental hip-hop
I produced all of these tracks without much more than my somewhat broken HP laptop to work with.
Legitimate feedback (on soundcloud) is greatly appreciated, and I will try my best to respond as quickly as possible.
>Breakcore, Teen Interest
>beats, samples, electronic-ish
will return feedback

This is the first single from my upcoming Dark R&B/Alternative R&B EP.
Would love to hear some feedback/critique, so far on other sites people have enjoyed this.
>Solo Acoustic Guitar Improv
>Acoustic Guitar, Loop Pedal
Something for all of the people who complain that soundcloud threads are all full of shitty hip hop and electronic stuff and that none of us can play a "real" instrument, which is just false.
I mean, I do jazzy trip hop/experimental electronic shit too, so feel free to check that out as well, but that stereotype of these threads has always bothered me.
>Blackened Harsh Noise, Electronic, Glitch, Ambient
One member of:
Figured this would be the best place to ask.
Do you think this would be a good investment? It's 20 bucks for 3 hours of video tutorial and it seems to have good feedback. Could probably pirate it in any case so I guess I'm just wondering how good ADSR is.
>drum and bass
experimental bedroom crap made with a $15 keyboard and a beat up guitar recorded through an effects pedal, total mess but it's fun to make, enjoy i guess?
Someone in the thread adroitly observed that my voice isn't the best and could use some work done on it, so I re-recorded and fx'ed the song they responded to
(noisy post-punk, shitty quality)
Final track off my new project.
Just pirate it or better yet, look up tutorials on youtube.
Literally everything you could possibly want to learn is available on youtube for free. If you say what DAW you're using, I'm sure people could point you in the right direction. Like, for example, I know Warbeats has an amazing and extensive collection of tutorials for FL Studio.
In short though: never pay for that sort of stuff. Free internet stuff is enough.
A lot of ivy league colleges even have full video lectures for free on their websites (like open courseware for MIT). I believe Berkeley has free lecture videos on music stuff, especially good if you want to learn more about music theory, all for free.
Spend your money on non-digital stuff, like equipment. Mics, audio interfaces, instruments, headphones/monitors, sound proofing... things you can't get for free.
Hip-Hop w/ experimental influence
I've been messing around with breakcore/breakbeats a lot more recently.
Give it a listen.
>wavy beta rap
How do you guys get people to comment/critique your stuff? Are there better places than /mu/?
I do really enjoy the compliments of course, but I'd really like some actual critique of my work, especially my guitar work. I have no idea where to go to get it though.
To the extent where I've considered starting lessons (just like 1 though before quitting) or trying out for competitions/jazz band ensembles or whatever that I don't even necessarily plan on joining, just to try to get better feedback on where I stand (or "how good I am" currently) and what I should work on/where I should go from here.
>SMOKE TO DIS SHIT
>instrumental hiphop, hazy, soulful
>Downtempo, jazz hip hop
will return all feedback
experimental lofi hiphop stuff or something, I duno... I had an existential crisis today...
Just finished this track today
Two days two songs!

New song I just uploaded, would love to get some feedback !
Nice, that sax is silky smooth and fits so well.
Heres a track i just put up
