    I just got back from a big festival called Revelation Generation, and here I discovered a band called “Needtobreathe.”

    I got their CD recently and decided to play around with a RMX of one of the tracks, which I don’t normally do, but it had a section that sounded too perfect to incorporate in a remix…so here it is!

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Wow loving it, question. I have been trying to make a synth like your rhythm one could you offer a helping hand? I am talking about the rhythm synth that starts at 32 secs. The one that keeps the cord progression.

    Also if you don’t know what sound I am talking about here is a sample attached:
    1. What is they Rhythm on that? Triplets??
    2. What type of Osc do you use?

    wowwow, I love the remix, nice work.

    keep producing more music for the Glory Of Jesus.

    nice synth sounds, great bass line, awesome break downs and releases, good EQ work, the only thing that wuold make it sound better is a stronger Kick drum.

    great work on this song.

    Alejandro – I thought of you while making this thing, haha. I thought, “I bet he’ll dig this.” Bass drums always give me trouble. I spend so much time on them and they still never pump the way I would like them too. They’re either too hard or too soft. But thank you for the feedback, I’m definitely going to put much more work into this one. I’m only maybe 3 hours in..so there’s plenty more to do. Any suggestions for how to make the kick knock aside from compression?

    Djfaith – I honestly have no idea what it is that I did/do, ha. I just arrange my stuff in the midi piano-roll editor until it sounds suitable. Mostly everything I do in making a track is trial and error & experimentation. I don’t even really know what you mean by “what osc do you use” and I’m not totally sure what a triplet is either. I need to study music more, ha. Sorry that I couldn’t be more helpful, but if you want I can send you a midi file of the section you were talking about so that you can see how it was arranged!

    Dimitri Vaganov – It was an awesome festival, I was selling shirts most of the time though so I didn’t get much of a chance to scope any of the bands, but my friends told me about needtobreathe. You probably saw me and didn’t know it, id you go for both days?

    DJ Rodimus – Thank you! Plenty more to come.

    look the track is great, I really love the bass line, with a good kick man this song will be very good, yes I have some sugestions to get a nice, strong and punchy kick.

    let me try to remember you are using logic right?
    are you using wav sounds for the kick or midi?

    ok look:

    make two copies of the kick drum channel, then you will have 3 channels with kick, copy the same kick sounds in two the 2 new channels then remove all the eqs from the 3 channels.

    then you are going to start working with them,

    in the fisrt channel, put the highs an mid frequencies, all the way down, and leave the lows.

    in the secound channel repeat the operation but leave only teh mids,

    in the 3rd channel do the same but leave only highs.

    (I hope Im making my self clear on this, )

    then start playing with compression an eq in the 3 channels, you will notice a big change in the sound, you will have to go down on volume, cuz the 3 kick drum channles playing together will make a strong sound, but you will have a nice kick sound on the song.

    tell me if you have questions.

    I went for Saturday only. I was more into checking out metal bands and up and comers. Le Cre was incredible though and Switchfoot is the best!

    Alejandro, dude, Im going to go try that now. I would have never thought to split it up like that. I ALWAYS have problems with Kicks. Mostly its because of layering other things in the same freq on top, which Ive learned not to do. Great advice! Thanks man!

    Just to let you know Audicid I plan on doing some music theory posts to help everyone get familiar with the basics of music theory. To explain a triplet..
    It’s dividing a beat into thirds. For an example in four four (this normally looks like a four stacked on top of another four by the clef) you could have a kick on every beat, which is very common in EDM. Then the hi-hat could divide the beat in half. Then maybe the snare could divide it in thirds. this is called a triplet. I made a file to demonstrate what I’m talking about. They are kind of ruff and choppy but as of now I don’t know how to do triplets using a tracker without playing them by hand (I’m also in Linux right now with the trackers and on the setup I have has a large amount of latency)

    I agree with Alejandro Cesar, very nice track, and that produced in 3 hours.
    but the kick is like the kick they used in happa hardcore back at 1999 fix that and you got a really nice track
