Courage - uptempo

By phliip on May 17, 2020 9:22 pm

I moved the bpm up and a few of my peeps preferred it at this tempo... I am kind of getting frustrated with this track; and frustrated with the process as a whole... I don't know which direction I'm going... I don't know what I want...

I don't know what my overall end game is any more...

I feel kinda dark... I wish I had a north star...

big vibes! if ur still workin on it i think you could sidechain the pads under the snareclap to push the energy a bit more. cool melodies!

I really enjoyed this track, I thought it was pretty dynamic and had a lot going for it. Just keep at it my dude, even when things are dark you gotta keep moving forward and you'll find where you're heading eventually.

I get where you're at. Right now, the best way to go is a completely different direction. You can't find your north star because you keep going south-east. It's a fine direction, but maybe it's not the one you need right now.

Thank you so much for your comment. I've added your suggestion to my to do list. I considered doing it last week; when you actually made your suggestion; but I really wanted to re do the second drop.

The new version should be going up this week; and now there is some bass/ chords conflicts in drop 1 and the verse so; I'm going to collect some feedback and then solve the mix issues.

Good news is... I'm nearly happy with the production :-) woo!!

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. I kept at it; and have made progress - can't really ask for much more. Latest version should be up this week... let me know if you have any mix suggestions...

Thanks again for words of encouragement... Really appreciated them and pushed through.

Thank you so much for your comment; and for working within my metaphor. I've pushed through this week; but I'm going to take your advice and give this project a break for the next 2/3 weeks and work on some different things... But; man do I want it polished and finished sounding all clean and crispy...

Listen to this weeks beat if you wanna hear the update...
