Description
This electronic piece has been bubbling in my machine for a while. Probably best in headphones or a system with heavy bass. I thought it might be cool with some wild female vocals or some sound effects but then decided to keep it simple.

Buzz Buzz
This sounds really cool. I like the heavy buzzing sound and the main synth riff really cool. I also like the hollow drum sound.

Lots of good swirling stuff as well.

buzz
now that you point it out, the piece is rather buzzy. I was going for a heavy synth sound that had a few dynamics...exploring sectioning.

thank for listening and taking the time to comment

i like the choice of synths, the clacking sound brought in after the break is a nice touch. the break starting at like 1:15 is cool, particularly the way you bring everything back. cool stuff

The clack part came as I explored clap sounds and managed to get onto the mix. I'm glad you like it. Thanks for your comments.

drakonis said 2210 days ago (April 11th, 2011)
nice choices
Feels a lot like a game soundtrack, with that rhythmic pumping growlbass powering the engines, and the other sound effects streaking across the windshield. Love the power-down in the middle, and almost wanted something similar at the end (but then, I usually have allergic reactions to fade-outs.) You kept it simple, clean, and interesting, excellent work.
ttfn,
Drakonis

cool electro-pop piece. harkens back a bit to the 70's synth stuff that i use to hear. i guess if there was a female vocalist it might make me think of missing persons a bit

Now that would be cool to get their singer on here...but since I am still insecure about my falsetto, we have an instrumental dance track. I appreciate your comments :)

hey papag...
...i really like this one...the lead up to the break at 1:48 was great, plus the break was awesome...the ending (circuit dialog?) was a beautiful contrast the the body of the song. nice work and thanks for the download.
papag said 2203 days ago (April 18th, 2011)
breaks
I like the break in there too...the circuit dialog was kinda like the "machine talking to the human" (at least in my head). Thanks for your comments.

But it's cool as is too.

Sounds magnificent on my studio rig... An apotheosis of mechanicity. Really superb choices in sound field placement. Tons of dimension, depth, and originality. I'm normally not really much a fan of the genre, but I am really taken with this. Made me think of Herbie Hancock, and M, and Robert Palmer for some bizarre reason. I think you have just enough here, vocals would jar it loose form the grip it has on the listener. Dig it!!

I think I never liked the disco beat (never a good dancer, not even a jumping dancer), but I love the layering of those synths. Without the drums and the overpowering bass they turn to be beautifully melancholic.

shavingronaldscar said 2083 days ago (August 16th, 2011)
Cool ideas
Some great elements in here, very enjoyable arrangement and build. One thing to watch out for with this style is your stereo image. You can get away with a lot of hard panning in rock or other acoustic stuff, but in electronic music, so much is based on the mono image being dead on. You have some bassier elements that are a little too hard panned, and that snare is leaning too much too. What I would do is make your main saw synth mono and rather put some stereo effects on the midrange and treble of it. Same thing with the snare, it needs to deliver a centre-field punch for this to come through the right way on a club system. I usually put a mid-side EQ on my master track, and cut all stereo information under 300 HZ.

Hope that helps, happy exploring!

restraint
i was trying to get a tight feel in the song... early on, I thought the tempo was too slow but when I sped it up it turned me off. The effect at 1:46 is the slow down effect in the automation track of logic. I thought i had kicked it up a notch when I added that in... :-)
