  1. Thanks for the clarifation and comments. Yeah, the song changes key at 0:53 so that must be the main issue you're having with it.I did it on purpose but I guess it doesn't make sense. Will sort this one out at some point Will take it off of eval. Cheers
  2. Update. Improved in all the various ways: https://sites.google.com/site/vspaine/wips/Harmonious%20M.mp3?attredirects=0&d=1 Link in OP also updated
  3. Update. Final tweaks to mix. Switched to eval. Same link
  4. Update. Tightened up EQ and reverb some more and some subtle changes to hihat patterns. Same link
  5. Update. Overhauled the EQ and reverb of every instrument so the mix is cleaner , fuller and more open. Also a couple arrangement changes. Same link
  6. Update. Worked on everything said. Most notably, I've reworked the compostion of the drums completely. Changed them to rock drums, added fills between transtions, etc. Also, changed elements of the composition and arrangement of other instruments to refect the new fully rock genre. Made the lead guitar tone fuller and removed more highs from rhythm guiitar so they interfere less. Varied things up with a clean tone in a part towards the end. Did other smaller changes you mentioned as well but will keep tweaking things. Same link
  7. Hey Roz. Thanks for the review. I'm on a DAW now but, since this remix idea was done back when I was using just a keyboard, I transferred the midi info from back then so it wasn't built from the ground up in the DAW. I'm thinking I'll play it safe and try and make this more of a typical rock track, especially the drums. Atleast then I'll know the drums will definitley fit the guitars both mix-wise and stylistically, and the arrangement will be more cohesive. The key thing I've been focused on with this track was trying to get the guitars sounding decent since the song depends on them and fake gutars can be seen as a big negative. Other thngs took a backseat. Sounds lke they still need a bit of tweaking but now I can focus more on the song as a whole as well. Cheers
  8. Changed to Mod review and added orignal to first post.
  9. Update. Increased tempo a bit. Changed tag to finished. Link in orignal post.
  10. Updated. Got a new electric guitar virtual instrument and amp simulator. Experimented for months trying to get rid of harsh frequences without leaving the guitars hollow sounding and hopefully i succeeded. Improved the overall mix and arrangement of the song in general as well. Link in original post
  11. Update: Adjusted the electric guitar mix some more. Got rid of more of the high frequencies in them but also made them more "in your face". This is the first song of mine that has featured electric guitars so prominently so some trial and error. Same link
  12. You're definitely on the right track. Changing the drums was a good move. Implement the things you've said as well. Maybe having some sort of improv style solo with the guitar or that e piano you mentioned would work well. Also, maybe try and find an RnB style vocal sample (not necessarily singing any lyrics, just singing notes, if you know what i mean) that complements the melody.
  13. Thanks for feedback. Was needed as this is an experimental song for me. Update: Most of the work was done on the mix of the electric guitars and - adjusted cabinet, amp and eq settings - but I just saw your comment and adjusted the arrangement so the two halves of the song make a little more sense. Did that part in a few minutes just now so not perfect. Same link above.
  14. Specifically he kick itself shouldn't be swung quite as much as I feel. Especially now that you added more bass to it. You could get away with that if you wanted to go more in the smooth jazz direction though probably. Speaking of bass, you should get some reference songs in this smooth hip hop style your going for and get a feel for how their kicks and bass balance with the rest of the track.
  15. Hey. I'd suggest a kick with more bass if you're going for hip hop and as you said, swing is important as well. I'd need to hear this extended to give more help.
