Name: Texxiliator's DnB Challenge.mmpz Download

I try to make a decent DnB but I don't know how to continue and tame/mix this music..
My ears hurt.. damn..
Btw, I'm using Texx's original melody and bassline.. just change it a little bit to suit my taste..

Your melody it sounded more nice and betterPosted by: gdd71 on 2017-03-13 22:05:58
You should listen to it @ 60 BPM, then 100 BPM, then 120 BPM, then 140 BPM, then 166 BPM, and then 200 BPM. Each tempo on the list gives the song its own feel somehow.Posted by: JordanKyser on 2017-03-14 03:54:44

I'm started listening with 60 bpm but then I stop after realizing so many damn mistake with slow bpm.. haha

8 download with 12 votes.. I guess someone have too much time to troll uh.. Posted by: Musiqaa on 2017-03-14 07:47:45
Someone makes a total mockery of the site probably has a password of registrations and whatnot..
Forum was also hacking several times.
There may be other interests and a competing company to pay for this to happen,, ?!?
In addition vitiated rating system, you can get 150 downloads simultaneously example..and this has happened!
@Gordon (theguiplayer) who bickered with all and was expelled from here, indiscriminately put all projects 1*

Just ignore these statistics .. they no longer are real

As I said before .. best thing can do is to remove these stars and replaced by button "Like" as in soundcloud.
Useful feedback in the comments and nothing else :)
Best regards :)Posted by: gdd71 on 2017-03-14 09:29:04
I actually really care about the star rating because it can be use to measure our project's composition from worst, decent, to excellent if you don't want to leave a feedback.. but if it will be replace with button "like", yeah, it might be better.. And I find it mesmerizing that someone actually find happiness/pleasure by spending a couple minutes of their time to do a pointless action by "hacking" (create multiple account) just to see how people will react after they proudly trolling other peoples..Posted by: Musiqaa on 2017-03-14 10:34:10
@Musiqaa Let me preface this by quoting SeamlessR here:
"The only person who'll ever truly know if your track is good or bad is you. The only way someone like me could even begin to speak on "good or bad" is by asking questions about your intentions. What were you going for? What did you want to sound like?
If I can compare it to something, I can cite differences and make suggestions. But until you give me that, the only thing it can be compared to is your own vision for what you want.
No matter how hard you try and explain what that is to someone else, they're never going to "get it" as well as you can for yourself.
Feedback is good, critique from people who know what they're talking about is better, but learning to recognize and trust your own instinct on "good" is ultimately what will make your music the best."

From listening to your projects I know that you're not a complete beginner producer. You know a thing or two about this music stuff. I think that you are self aware enough to not need someone telling you whether your project good or bad.
What you need is specific advice and constructive criticism about certain elements of the song. If you want feedback try asking specific questions about different elements of the track. Ratings can't give you that. A person could rate your project badly just because he doesn't like the genre...or some stupid shit. That's why ratings are pretty meaningless unless you know the reason behind the rating.

A problem with asking people to give you constructive criticism is that people usually don't have time for that. Also it would obviously be nice to get the feedback from a person who knows what he's talking about and can word himself well... Posted by: Squatro on 2017-03-14 11:28:22
@Musiqaa Is there a way to contact you privately? I got a pretty good solution for you...Posted by: Squatro on 2017-03-14 12:05:53
Ahh, I see.. you got a good point there.. I'm just started producing music almost 2 years now, and as I'm still trying to figure out what music I should make, I aimlessly experimenting with different types of genre just for the sake of fun..

That's why sometimes there are projects that I cannot even finish it because I know that's my limit for now and yeah, lack of fundamental of making music in term of theory and technical. That's why I'm clueless on what specific question that I should ask to get a constructive feedback.

And yeah, you right, good/bad rating are pointless without reason.. I guess I will just have to learn and keep making music that I feel good and hopefully I will be good enough later to exchange constructive feedback from fellow music producer..

@Musiqaa "I aimlessly experimenting with different types of genre just for the sake of fun.. "
That's not a bad thing... I don't think that you should restrict yourself onto one genre. Sure building an audience might be easier when you stick to one genre, but you should do whatever makes you happy. I hate labeling songs into genres i general. IMO some of the best songs take bits from a plethora of different genres...Posted by: Squatro on 2017-03-14 14:53:54
