nice bass and lead here, drums gel together great - gives it a laidback feel

I'm a sucker for off-kilter drums. heart

that melody tho

February 4, 2020 2:51 am

This is a big track, really great sound here! Wish it was twice as long

The guitar notes built some tension, like waiting for something to happen. So sparse yet so full of detail. I also wish it would be longer.

Really nice track. Downloaded

Nice track. Like the drums, and those leads.

I'm a fan of the wonky groove.  Cool vibe here!

Lovely laid back groove with those chords and bassline.  Especially enjoyed the drums when the cymbals kicked in.  Nice work!

experiment is a success, drums sound fantastic, really like the bass and that melody in the last half.

HOLD UP.

2700 Kelvin is 4400.33 Fahrenheit

ARE YOU CRAZY?

Stacked drums sound great there - are you doing some rad compression?

Filtered drum outro is crucial

hahaha, well I was referring to 2700K used in color temperature -- 2700K is yellowish/incandescent, 5500K is daylight. but your comment made me wonder why we measure color temperature this way, and I found this super interesting answer:


"...the hotter something gets, the more intense and broader that radiation becomes, and it starts emiting higher frequencies of light. That means we start seeing it as a faint, dull, red glow as the object reaches 525ºC (or about 800 Kelvin), and we say it's incandescent. If you keep heating the substance, the light it emits becomes even stronger, less dull and more shiny  (about 2000 Kelvin), and progressively stops being red and becomes orange (3000K), yellow (4000 K and upwards) and finally yellowish white, white (6000K) and blue (9000-10000 K).

That phenomena is called Black-body radiation, and was explained by Max Planck in 1900, which was a huge step in quantum physics (classical physics predicted the radiation would be very different from what it actually was).

Most lamps used today do not emit light based on black body radiation, they use different process, but we make an analogy and say that an orange lamp has a "color temperature" of 2700K for example, and a yellow one has a "color temperature" of 3500K, and so on, meaning something like "this lamp emits light of the same color as the thermal radiation of a blackbody at 3500 Kelvin"."

and yeah -- lots and lots of compression on those stacked drums!
