Default Enough Talk

Short and sweet synth number. Something to work on, I think.
If anybody would be kind enough to offer some feedback, that would be great.
There's no effects, nothing added. Just the drums and 4 vst synth tracks.

Thank you.

You already said it - short and sweet synth track. I agree. Nicely done.

the sounds are good, but it seems like we need more room to breathe

this is after first listening sober -sounded awful dense, then listening after three beers... the three beers version sounded better, but still too dense

don't know... I'm trying to calibrate myself to the best stuff I can find on youtube, and that seems to be trending towards lots of air in the mixes --terrific sounds, but not many of them, and not much reverb

I do quite a lot of three beer listening. And more, given a chance. What would you recommend?

maybe it's just a matter of turning that pad down a few db, and turning the bass up a few db...

after listening again just now, the pad seems plenty wide...

don't know, it's a nice tune, worth fooling around with... maybe it needs a bass track, one that matches the kick drum...

ispose I'd transpose that jittery bas up an octave, pan it left, add a more conventional (rhythmically) bass track, and turn the pad down a little

.
and maybe the music is saying exactly what you want it to say, so you should leave it the way it is

here's a piece of anne Dudley's score for "pushing tin"...

nice pads mixed pretty far back aas a backdrop for all that other stuff

anne Dudley's "he's pushing tin" sounds kinda cluttered, but it's old...

I keep yapping about "air in the mix" and the song below is a modern example of what I mean... I don't like the song all that much, but...
.


is this sort of arrangement a fad? ...don't know...




I'd like to know how many million dollars' worth of effects machinery were used on this thing

but it's the kind of sound I'd try for if I was a synth player

.

hate to keep badgering you
