Auditioning some new synths on Serum.... Got a bit carried away.
Anyone know much about this new Riddim genre?
Been listening to some on YouTube but it just sounds like Dubstep but heavier...
A bit about the track itself:
I aimed for volume right off the bat and cranked it up from the start. Maximus and compressors galore. The result is a less clean mix but more filled out track. Next time, I'm going to do something similar but with the other genres I'm playing around with. See if it has similar effect.
It's really hard to make a track at quiet volume with lovely dynamics, then have to crank it up to max out the loudness and let go of those dynamics.
This time I threw the dynamics out of the window from the start and went for loudness then toned it down a smidge after. The focus was more on trying to get some filthy sounds going on.
One thing I would love to figure out is ambience after cleaning a track. I've spent most of today cleaning another track and lost a ton of the ambience I created just by jumbling together sounds poorly. Now that mix is too clean. Going to upload it probably tomorrow or the day after anyway and see if I can fix the ambience.
Was actually aiming to get that out today but instead threw this together xD
Edit: might have another look at this tomorrow actually and see about cleaning some of the highs a smidge, especially for headphones.
