Aren't You Cold

Recommended Posts

The answer to your question becomes far more interesting than you might expect. Especially on headphones!

I liked it very much. You and Jesse Screed on this forum share some musical DNA. Just great for an adventurous if indulgent listening experience.

If I could offer an opinion on the proceedings, it would be to improve your drum sample quality a little, or at least that open hi hat at fixed volume that just demands the listener's attention at the detriment of the other excellent song parts.

I appreciated the unexpected all the way along this ride. Thanks!

Hi Jack, you'd just add a third party drum program into your project. Addictive Drums 2 is usually a good place to start, but there are loads of other options..

I'm not familiar with the Cakewalk drums but I'd bet they have some more flexibility and different hi hats you could swap in or out. Again this is all just my tonal preference I'm relating to you. You might not want to change anything just because some guy on the internet says 😵

The hi hat in your song is very much a "techno" hi hat, I think, but I thought your song would benefit from a more organic and natural acoustic drum vibe. Might be a thought, or not.

 

P.s. I listened again and I like the "tong" of the ride cymbal hit. But the open hi hat that follows it is the same sample each time, same waveform same sustain. Any way to mix it up could be a plus.

thanks for more insight.i used cal on cymbals so how can eachbeat be the same?jack c.i think what your saying is to use another type hh cymbal for more flavor?

I think this could use some changes in the melody and groove early on - just what I thought while listening.

Also, the volume is quite low through my cans on my laptop.

Jack, depending on the drum VSTi you are using it uses the same sample every hit. The cal routine varies the velocities of the hits; depending on the library that might result in a more “realistic” performance, but does not guarantee that it will. That’s what Tom was trying to explain. I guess it begs the question, what are you using for drums?

Overall the tune works, just needs some “spit and polish”.
