futile improvements

By miau on January 26, 2020 11:58 pm

A cheater submission. Had a couple of sketches during the week but didn't like them and decided to finish/polish an old track of mine that was badly mixed and missed something. I think I didn't manage to improve it. Maybe made a better mix in terms of tonal balance. Added a couple layers of synths and instead of the lead pluck made an operator patch from scratch and finally realized I didn't like it, but had no time to remake. Also added sub bass. Damn, spent almost all sunday on this smile

I blame ableton for my failure smile It's such a pain to move back to ableton 9 after bitwig, spent so much time searching for stuff like filter envelope depth, bitwig's modulation workflow is so much simpler and cleaner.

Anyway, I didn't improve my track the way I wanted, but got some experience I think. Mistakes are means to gain experience.

Critique is appreciated! Would be happy to get any mixing advice.

Here is the previous version if anyone interested - https://soundcloud.com/miaulement/proto-w4/s-xlqRY (it's almost the same, second half is a bit different)

I like all the buzzy stuff and the plucks but they got a bit drowned out by the (super lush) chords. Nice vibes, good winter tune.

Like the lush floating pads, pretty strings sounds.

Really neat texture!  Love the swelling pads too.
