I am definitely in the beginner category trying to implement some of the knowledge from Sonic Academy’s videos.
I am not very good with genres so no idea what label this would fall under. I was following one of Protoculture’s trance tutorials where he was working with vocals and I decided to base the track around a piano riff.
Any feedback will be very much appreciated.
All the best
Welcome aboard on the forums and sorry for the delayed reply over the holiday
Nice one,the kick and bass are playing well together, elements like the kind of “sonar” synth sound pushed through delay + reverb adds a nice background and vibe to the track.
Mixing wise, I found the mid and higher frequency range sounding a bit harsh, you might want to tame those picks in the mids & highs. Mix is also quite loud and spread through stereo, it’s good to reach a commercial or club track level, but taming the mix a bit and creating more balance & contrast between the lows and the highs and mono and stereo could be interesting.
But yep, nice work and cool track, keep it up in 2024 !
Hope this helps !
Happy New Year!
Thank you for taking the time - really appreciate it. I will take a closer look at the tonal balance. Your feedback regarding stereo spread has been very helpful. I have just finished a couple of courses here that have given me a good idea of how to approach the next endeavour.
