Description
Have a listen and tell me what you think. I'll be esp interested in feedback regarding levels and sounds etc, also would be interested in whether or not you like it and why? I like the sounds but not sure about the levels. For me I created something that could have gone on for a little longer, however I did not want it to be too repetitive. It makes you want to listen to the track again. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Hmmm, might help if there were some, and a good singer as well.

This one
is a little more restrained than usual Keith. Has a really good feel to it. Like the way it gently builds. Nice groove.
Cheers
Len

good
Great song! Maybe that lead synth is too loud in the mix... You can try a powerful beat with the percussion..

Thanks Craft
for listening and commenting. I agree with you about both points of feedback. The beat at the start is supposed to be light however at the end of the track I have underlaid a heavier beat that should have been louder. Thanks again Craft, really appreciated.

Ok-
I'm horrible at giving useful feedback, but here goes :P

I like the panning in the intro.

The warbly ascending synth seemed a tad loud to me (kinda scared me, hehe)

Overall it has a sort of primal feel to me with the drums/beats. I like what I just listened to and I'm going to listen again :) Nice track sir!

Thanks Mike
for listening and commenting. Yes the main lead is a bit loud, I was afraid of it not being prominant at the start, so I must have compensated too much. Thanks again, glad you liked it.

Thanks Kenta
I'm glad the track kept you wanting more, that was the intention, not to have it too long, so that you wanted to play it again. Thanks for listening and commenting, always good to see you.

Mmmmm Keith I like it .
So many interesting sound effects going on.
Love the title and the pic as well. Sounded alright to my two ears.
I actually love it. I will also download this one too.
I love your downloads LoL. Its got me tapping and shaking my hips while sat on my chair writing these comments as well. Thank you Sweetie.

Peace Dee xxxxxxxx
Diviner said 3864 days ago (May 14th, 2008)
Aaahh, Thanks Dee
thats really sweet of you to say. I'm really pleased that you liked it enough to download. I like this track also, I just wished I tweaked it a little before submitting it. Really pleased to see your comments, thanks again Dee xxxxxxxx

ok!
well this has a different feel to it. I, for one, like it a lot. Good use of flanger-like effect. That bass is wicked, maybe a bit too loud? It depends on compression, not on loudness. Good addition of layers! As Lengold said, nice and gentle. I dig those beats a lot! My mysterious arab percussion friend;))). Cute melody. My only real suggestion would be to let the bass fluctuate a bit more (just so it still fits all those melodies...not an easy job, i am sure).
Very good job, I really love your progression!
Marc
ps; I have been away for some days, I have fallen in love with a very special girl (had to invest some time in my Cherokee lady)

Thanks Marc
Good to see you here, and really pleased for you about meeting this Lady, and I wish you all the best and hope it goes well. I will try in the future to bring in more compression into the tracks esp the bass and also try more flucuations. Thanks again for listening and commenting, really pleased that you like it and I will try out those suggestions. Cheers Marc.

davisamerica said 3864 days ago (May 14th, 2008)
right then keith
some good advice from all .. marc was pretty insightful but i think you knew all that .. it is hard to makes choices on levels and finding resolution to them ... that being said i actually pretty much like it as is .. it does not get repetitious at all ... third listen .. find a singer ... next step. very nicely done keith.

echoroom said 3861 days ago (May 17th, 2008)
well to me..
... levels sound generally ok, tho' this works better as instrumental than vocal, I'd think, as the structure is pretty loose, which keeps the interest all the way to the end - nice one.

Diviner said 3852 days ago (May 26th, 2008)
Thanks Echoroom
for listening and commenting. The track changes are influenced from hip hop and psytrance where they can change suddenly to go into a slightly different direction before coming back. Thanks again, its appreciated.

Thanks Lightman
for listening and commenting, I'm really pleased that you like it. Its one of those tracks that you start to do in one day and its all finished after a few hours. Thanks again.

Nice Production
I dunno what you're talking about, i didn't hear any feedback at all, the levels were alright! (:p)

Thanks Aerojet
for listening and commenting. Its just that sometimes when you listen to a track over and over it can sometimes be hard to notice the things you need to listen out for. Maybe should have given it a break instead of being eager to finish and submit. Thanks again.

Background
Sounds more like a great background scene to a movie futuristic movie. I like the melody around 3:30. But not the repetitive bass.

Diviner said 3851 days ago (May 26th, 2008)
Thanks edpdx
for listening and commenting, its always appreciated. Glad you like the track, and the bass was a bit much, and will learn from the Turtle about compression, and maybe have the confidence to change the bass line so it is not repetitive. Thanks again.

Dance with restraint
This is sort of dance music, but it's fairly quiet in character. Nice atmosphere, but the arrangement could use a bit more daring. Too much of it is just gentle background. Gentle is good, but background is not.

The levels work for me!
Slightly restrained and stately energy, almost like a group of gentlemen performing this one live in their tuxes - Kraftwerk meets a string quartet (bizarre image, no?) ; has great depth of feeling, continuously interesting variety, and a smooth ambient/lounge kind of atmosphere. I really liked the entry of the high toms and percussive sounding lead around half way through - but then it's all good!

So many winners, so little time....

Cheers,
Doug
