Noisia type stuff. Trying to pin down that sound. Im not very good at the bass and other separation.

Wheres the bass?
This is pretty much just midrange. Bottom and top are missing.

I enjoyed it though, lo fi and paranoid.

A good start or breakdown to a tune.

There you go bud, added a Tres Mono with some fx and some lfo mangling. Drums boosted and main bassline changed into a reverberated noise.

The new mix is a great improvement. Its still a little muddy, but the bass has more presence and the drums are punchier. Has good potential ... perhaps add some compression and EQ on the master. Difficult to judge these things from a SC stream.

Ok will do, but as I'm a beginner I never no were to start. I just try to get it as clean as I can try to cut bass around 110 - 140 but then sometimes my kick is too loud. The whole theory thing gets to me, thanks for your advice though.

Nice, almost a different tune!

Still missing that bottom end though.

How about layering it with a sine type bass to thicken the low end out.
Doesnt have to be really loud, it just needs to reinforce the bass you already have.

Listening to Noisia it seems they use layered bass sounds
Ie bottom, middle and top, its the top bit which adds the aggression in this genre

Do you know how to sidechain the kick & bass? I think that's a big part of the Nosia sound. For me, making space for everything is key. EQ can be helpful, but imho its better to pick your sounds properly so they don't occupy the same frequency's ...

Thanks I will try it (the sine layered) and post it tomorrow as I'm on the wine now : )) I can side chain in Ableton easy but Reason I will have to read up on. I will have a look thanks.

Nice sounds. Sometimes you can't differentiate whether that are beats or something else. Nice work.
