A bit of a crazy one this, knocked together for a bit of fun. Genre: Industrial metal? I used samples from the Linndrum machine.

My Feedback

Music - 8
Instruments - 8
Performance - 8
Mix - 6

Overall - 7.5

Comments: Mix dull. I'd guess there's nothing over 1k. Volume needs turning up too. Musically it's okay but mix is so dull it makes it hard to be interested. It's like there's a muffler over it. Abrupt cutoff at end doesn't help as far as presentation.

has an air of the spawn soundtrack, where they got dance and metal bands working together :hihi:

could also imagine mike patton crooning over this, peeping tom rather than fnm, maybe a bit of bungle :ud:

Yeah you’re right...I sacrificed too much of the guitar freqs in order to get everything to fit...especially the drums. definitely need to work on this more. Still open to more forum feedback though.

I love mike Patton, particularly his tomahawk stuff...Anonymous is a really great, original album

Thanks! Yes, for variety I was thinking of adding some ping pong delay and filter automation on the drums for certain parts. Honestly I’m finding mixing really hard for this type of genre (or just in general) ...wagtunes has sent me crashing back down to earth several times....but I guess I need to produce a bunch of these shitty mixes in order to improve. I’ll give this a go from scratch at the weekend.

You taught me a lot and you've helped me more than you know. I can now recognize when things are off.

I did another remix, fancy a listen? After listening back again I still feel i need to add more automation to the drums and also level out some of the synths... but it's more or less done. :phones: https://soundcloud.com/fc1985/detroit3
