I like bass. But I think in this special song you shouldn't add a subbass.

Sorry, I don't actually have any useful opinions about sub-bass.

Hey, nice!

The extra low end is strictly optional, one could, very carefully, but the mix definitely works well as it is, on big speakers and, importantly, the bass instrument has representations in higher ranges, too, and hence is well perceptible on device speakers or in-ears.

The oneiric quality of the song is carrying over well, and there's an (intentional? involuntary?) bit of humour, too - I at least couldn't help grinning ear to ear at hearing that one voice that sounds like a Yawn Yodel to me in that dream context :)

Thanks. The sample came in very late. I wanted to include a poem of RUMI spoken through the MIicrokorg Vocoder, but then I stumbled over that poem.
The yodel sound comes from Helm, I think it sounds oriental almost like a voice.

Nice find. Do you think it can be considered as being acid or should I add some bleeps and plops?

Sweet work ! Not my working bag at all but you caught me right away with the instrumental entry, very nice.

Not much to critique musically. I might have liked more vocal samples scattered through the piece, that's about all.

I'm listening on a decent pair of studio monitors. IMO the bass could be more present and needs a little more depth. The drums - specifically the bass drum and the snare - could have more character too, without missing the style.

Impressive, thanks for sharing.

Best,

Thanks! I try to improve bass and snare and maybe add some more samples too (maybe even replace the samples completely with some Tim Leary :mrgreen: samples or so... ).

The kick is a 808 sample and there is really not that much I can do, except completely replacing it.

Thanks, it was quite a struggle as I first used other samples.
