My Seven Lions Rework

Post by Psychoactive_Music » Fri Jun 14, 2013 7:00 pm

I used the vocal stem for Seven Lions 'Fever' and built my own track around it

Feedback would be sweet

Sick dude. Not much feedback to give you except that your kick and snare could use a compressor or something.
they're kind of quiet otherwise good job!

Thanks man!

Thanks for the advice, I need to get my kick and snares louder. Drums are the toughest part for me always.

Pretty light on the low end. I don't think the snare needs to be louder, though an EQ boost 400Hz might give it a bit more body and power. The kick and bassline, really the whole low end it pretty much needs to come up. Also the timing on the sidechain didn't really fit the tempo of the song in places, the release was off beat to me.

Great arrangement and melodies though, the only crits I have are mixdown things really.

Thanks tarekith

I have been reading your excellent PDF's

The mixdown I must admit I do find quite difficult.
But I practice and learn a bit more everyday

Thanks for the advice and lending me your ears will definitely work on those points for my future work!

Damn dude,wish I had this vocals. Nice song,but I feel it could use more sub. Also,the drums get a bit lost in some parts.

Good work,I really enjoy this chilled out stuff.
