@crosstevsky let's be honest , i didn't like it , your beat is kinda Empty you know ? you need to add more stuff , and also the snare bothers me , maybe that's not my flavor of snares but i didn't like the snare anyways . the melody has some potential though .

@DEEZ BEATZ in the first place i was hating your beat because it was kinda EDMish , but then i found out its a EDM and i liked it :) i never listen to EDM though , i cant judge it but i can feel some good stuff is in this beat .

others that i didn't give feedback to , the websites that you posted the beats on are blocked in Iran so i can't give you feedback , i will try as soon as i get VPN again .



if you wanna give feedback on My beat , please focus on the melodies and the structre , i know the mix and drums suck :|


oh by the way i made the cover
Putting the mix outside and only focusing on the melody and “drums”, it’s sounds great! The melody keeps me listening. I enjoyed your transitions throughout the beat. Keep up the good work! I’m still learning mixing everyday and trying to improve it, so I understand 100%. Watch constant videos on mixing. There’s different ways to mix. I suggest watching different ways to make your own way of mixing and sticking to it. Again, keep up the good work!

Dear @Alejandro
Here is my last beat. Thanks to all previous feedback on the last showcase I appreciated I hope I have improved in this one.
Let me tell the good stuff first , that sound on your beat on 00:30 was awesome , i only wish the last note it played was a lower note you know ? I liked your string melody till one of the notes repeated , i mean it played the same note twice on 00:02 . Also that pad that came on 01:40 was great too .
The thing that Sucked was the choice of the pentascale on 00:08 . I mean the song had an dark vibe , a great atmosphere for rapping , but you made it a happy song on 00:08-00:10 , on 00:56 that sound goes out of tune , make sure you change the note of that , the other thing that was extremely horrendous was the drums , i mean what the hell man ? Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare-Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare-Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare-Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare-Kick - Snare - Kick - Snare - Kick

But seriously @Alejandro , i liked your beat alot because it was Original and if it is one of your first beats it's Great , Everybody can make the drums of a song sound awesome , even if they cant they use a Loop or something , but you ( hopefully ) made that yourself. Also the vibe and string idea was great .

@Matt-D This Really Aint My Thing No Probs With The Quality Of The Mix That I Can Hear But It's Just Too Bubblegum N Lovely For My Tastes Was Expecting Something Nasty By The Title & The Image
@crosstevsky This Is Defo More To My Tastes Very Cool Very Dark & Very Menacing Would Of Been Cool If There Was A Change Up But I Know How Difficult It Is To Add One When Your Melody Is The Heart Of A Beat So I Defo Would Of Had It Play Like You Did
@DEEZ BEATZ Another Very Lovely Sounding Track Has The Feel Of Alot Of Stuff That Were Charting In The UK In The Naughties Sort Of Like A Trance R & B Hybrid Seems Like A Track Alot Of Clubbers Would Love But Not For Me I Did Like The Reese Grinding Sound
I Know This Could Be Mixed In To A Very Good Haoppy Hardcore Track If Ya Upped The Tempo Of The Beat That's What It Got Me Reminded Of When I Heard It I'm Speaking Just In Terms Of My Own Personal Tastes I Was Bang Into The Whole 1990s Happy Hardcore Movement & It's Tracks With This Sort Of Feel That Fueled The Whole Scene
@dBtheProducer OK Listening Now There We Go The Drop Yes I Like It Feels Like A Re Hooking Beat You Think Your Out But That Piano Type Sample Pulls Ya Back N Them Horny Bits Put Ya Back In Ya Seat Loves The Slidey Sound To Drums Or Spot On As Well So You Got A Tune Here At Least Thats What I Think Very Cool My Friend
@ArvinArmani Always Have Had Mad Respect For The Way You Just Tell It How It Is So I'm Always Keen To Here Your Tracks . I
Liked It Its Not Something I'd Usually Like But I Really Liked How The Drum N Bass Worked Together , Has Me Getting A Feeling Of Hopelessness & Remorse Very Depressive & Deep In Terms Of The Mood I Think You Well Pulled This Off Solid Track My Mate
@Alejandro O.K. This Is Starting Well Got My Leg Going Anyway Not A Big Fan Of That Sound Arpeg Or Somthing Sounding A Bit Out Of Tune But The String N Horn Wave Are Very Good Drums Do What They Do Couldnt Get My Ears On The Bass Maybe Ya Ommitted It Cool Beat Cool Track Has Some Change Throughout So Well Done Pal

@C4NTK33P5T1LL I feel like I wish there was more going on with the drums, and I think the mix could be a bit better with the drums more forward. Digging the droney bass though.

@Alejandro I think the track needs some cymbals to help glue it together. Staccato strings are cool.

@dBtheProducer Dope beat dude, don't really have any critique. I like the sound a lot.

@Matt-D : I like the song and the beat. The mix on the vocals is on top too. I though the keyboard synth's could fit in the mix better, like more delay or reverb. Either way, nice song.

@DEEZ BEATZ : This is different but still dope. I like your versatility in beatmaking, this really sounds like a pop song that I would hear on a top 40 radio station. I like the buzz bass towards the end too. Good job

@dBtheProducer : Dope beat, I like the bass a lot. I thought the horn section could be brought up in the mix a little bit either by increasing its level or applying a frequency boost but overall I like the beat

@ArvinArmani : I thought the overall harmony behind the melody fit really well and the harmony and track had a nice structure. However, I thought the melody itself could benefit from a more varied rhythm and I think the synth might need to be tuned a little bit. It sounded like it was out of key with the rest of the track.

@Low G: I really like this beat, it definitely hearkens back to the boom bap style and 90s hip hopi n general. I thought the structure was dope too. The mix seemed a little washy though, maybe too much reverb?

@Alejandro : I like the string sample but like @ArvinArmani said it would be interesting with a more varied drum pattern. The bass and stter sounding synth could fit in the mix better too

@C4NTK33P5T1LL : I like the idea of using instruments and style more associated with rock for a hip hop beat but I think you could add some instrumentation earlier to the beat before the piano or introduce the drums later to make it more interesting starting out. Mix also sound like it may need work. A lot of good ideas though.

@rjpasin : I like the mix, melody, and harmony of this. Very moody trap instrumental. Good job

@Collapse : Wow dope beat bro! Very well mixed, drums are nice, piano is lit. Those vocals/high pitch sound really spice up the beat. This instrumental just has a really nice balance overall and gives off a chill cruising vibe with a bit of spookyness, i have no criticism whatsoever! Keep it up bud!

@rjpasin : Holy smoke, this beat is fire! The 808 bass goes hard af, and i loved the vocal sample! Piano is sick, everything is nicely mixed and mastered, i def fuck wiith this had to have a 2nd listen. A rapper could easily snap on this track and thats what makes it so good imo. Sounds professionally produced man, keep doing what ur doing!

@Chad : I like the idea of this beat , enjoyed listening to the guitar, and hi hats were on point! I wasn't a fan of the kick sound you used,, also i think the melody that comes in at around :53 is pretty random and i felt it didnt mesh well with the beat. The switch up at 1:15 was cool, but then it felt like too much was going on, was overwhelming at this point. Ending seemed a bit rushed. You have the idea down, just keep working and focus on your arrangement and finding the right instruments/sounds that work well together, afterall you're creating a song and you want it to flow nicely and be easy to listen to.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just posted this beat 2 days ago, and i've been working on this one for a while -constantly changing it up and experimenting with it over time but im excited to finally share it with you guys. Let me know what you think, any feed back, comments or tips are gladly welcomed!

Thanks x! I appreciate your feedback! My mixes are using hit or miss since I give up after listening to them through 4 different outputs.

I enjoy your beat. Usually putting many sounds into a beat causes too much collisions, but you figured it out to not let them crash, but fit them in perfectly! Any rapper can rap fast and slow on this beat. Since idk how to write lyrics well, I pretend to rap to beats to see how it would sound to an actual rapper, and with your beat, any rapper can get creative. Great job!
