New track up on my SoundCloud site for your listening pleasure. A bit of laidback track this one:- https://soundcloud.com/biodiode/at-tranquility-base

Thoroughly enjoyed the slow rise and fall of this one..great sounds as usual.

One issue I had was that the drums sound very slightly out of sync with the other parts?

My Feedback

Music - 9
Instruments - 9.5
Performance - 9.5
Mix - 10

Overall - 9.5

Comments: Love the creepy vibe on this one. Reminds me of something I used to listen to in the late 70s but I can't put my finger on it. Very well done.

the drum loop had almost no dynamic range at all.
but thats the danger of using drum loops that are already
super compressed. enjoyed everything else. good job overall :tu:

Thank you all for your comments. I was trying out UltraLoop from Twisted Tools on this track but I agree they sound more squished than the ones I either program via Kontakt or StylusRMX, may go back to the drawing board for the next track.

Incidently I have a full length album up on Spotify along with other streaming services - https://tinyurl.com/y8gh9qvw

it isnt extreme or anything, just noticable to a critical production listener like me :hihi: i like to use klanghelm's DC1A2 for processed drum loops
like that to give them a little more attack punch. :idea:

Thanks for clarifying layzer appreciate that. I will check out the DC1A2, may be useful if I use Ultraloop again.
