Just finished this track this afternoon. Not sure if the singer gave his all, but his manager approved of it and I got paid. LOL, the things we do for money.....

Check out my new mixTAPE! The whole thing for free download:
http://www.mediafire.com/?j1n00jjdhmi

Dubstep beats, rappers and singers from the bay area california. Here's a lil bio:
Over a year in the making, countless hours logged, blood, sweat, and tears poured into it, and it's day has finally arrived, Enter: Dub Rap. This new genre of music has been defined and developed thru the making of DJ Ricky Switch's newest mixtape: Dub Rap Volume1, featuring One Drop. Put your seat belts on it's gonna be a bumpy ride, but if your ears are ready to hear the future of music, stay tuned....

Rewind four years prior, to a remote island off the north coast of Ireland where a young, but seasoned DrumNBass DJ named Ricky Switch was first being being exposed to wobble basslines, boom bap slaps, and a whole new sound of music which he soon found himself engulfed in, Dubstep. Shortly after, Ricky packed his bags and moved out to California, the San Francisco Bay Area to be exact. He found his way DJ'ing the few Dubstep and DnB shows that he could find, and doing so he also became involved in the local hip hop scene, where he joined the underground rap group Distant Relatives. In due course, he would share a studio with local Bay Area Rapper Starski, and while Ricky would be bumping dubstep dj sets in one room, Starski and his crew were knocking out raps in the other. It was only a matter of time before peanut butter met the chocolate and Reese's Pieces was made, or as they call it Dub Rap.

During the process of working on the mixtape, they created a marriage the authentic sounds of UK Dubstep music and hardcore underground bay area MC's and singers. Instantly, the artists became fully engrossed in the sounds and space that Dubstep offers a vocalist and found many ways to deliver their art form. Over 50 tracks were recorded in a year's time, and only about half of them made it to the mixtape (respect to the ones that didn't). The Dub Rap sound that came out of this experience is an intense mix of otherworldly sounds courtesy of UK Dubstep rhythms, and the future of bay area and worldwide hip hop music.

This project was done with much praise and respect given to the originators of Dubstep, and the producers who made the music that made this mix possible. It's aimed at giving the genre another avenue to allow it to grow and to expose more people to it's undeniable sound and originality. The core artists (the mcs/ singers) involved have no doubts that they will continue to work within this medium of art to allow their creative juices to flourish and expand on an ever broadening horizon of Dubstep visions. Their is no question that the genre of "Dubrap" will catch on with other artists the world over, and allow rappers and singers alike to grow into the next millennium of audio murder: Dubstep and now Dubrap.

It sounds kool. Maybe some EQ on the vox, high pass and a presence boost (I'm crazy with the EQ tho so it's only preference). Sounds like the first hit when the verse kicks it was a tad early, but it still flows and maybe that was me trippin on the listen. Sounds like that old school hip hop vibe. LOL at the no shout outs at the end then shoutin' out, "WHAT UP TEKNIK!!"

Beat is real cool, vocals were lacking intensity and emotion (some performance, some tracking and mixing. Vocals could benefit from lowpassing, for my voice I usually end up keeping only the frequencies below 5k. It helps them to sit well in the mix. ompression brings in intensity. I also heard alot of verb on the leads but that is subjective. Overall the song has alot of potential, it just hasn't peaked yet.

Its something that I have found that works for my voice which is naturally on the mid/high side of the spectrum. The next time you record vocals and before you pull out any EQ or Compressor, insert a Frequency analyzer and see what frequencies make up that voice. The key is getting rid of unwanted frequencies while still sounding natural. For MY voice, I can live with loosing some hi end detail and still have good clean intelligible vocals.

Thanks. I'm fairly new on mixing my beats so you can't forget about vocal which I recorded as well..lol and the end of the song.

Hahah, dude you missed the joke. RyanC was being sarcastic.... your statement was inacurrate in language (you obviously meant HIGHpass, or did you want to make muffled poo?)

Further more, 5k is REDICULOUS! Even on the softest slope (say 6dB/octave) that would completely ruin the vocals in any song, any style of music.

Maybe you mean a soft slope (6db) from like 500hz highpassed? That's starting to make sense, although I still wouldn't recommend it. Some mic's rolloffs are similar to this though...

I prefer to roll of sharp at anywhere from 95 -> 140 hz, and then scoop some low mids with the EQ (400-700hz) if needed. Some voices don't, but it's fairly common to want to remove a bit of that. Especially on heavy stacks.

I'm not worried about what RyanC meant, and no I did not mean HIGHpass as HIGHpassing allows me to cut out low end rumble, mud and whatever else lives in the sub (20-80Hz) and low (80-200Hz) range. LOWpassing is the direct opposite as I use this to really just isolate the important frequencies in my voice (not yours or RyanC) and roll off any others.

The bottom line is this, what sounds good is good, regardless of the method or whatever terminology we can come up with. I invite you to take a listen and see if my vocals sound like poo as you put it. Muffled Poo that is.

Hello everyone

Here is a new beat that I have just finished making/mixing. Does someone mind checking the low end I am not mixing in a ideal room.

Thanks in advance

Dude, it definitely sounds like muffled poo. And that's a mixing issue, because your performance and beats are fine. (Listening to Real Live Soldiers) the chorus isn't quite as muffled, but the verse is out of control.. sounds like you rap through a pillow.

You need a second set of ears and/or new monitors..

any way i can fit more instruments or layers in this mix?

i played the drums and put a guitar in it(it will get better) , but technically, how can i make space for something else without taking away the guitar sound?

There's very present breathing in this track. Sounds almost like gasping. Might wanna cut em out or turn em down.


Use EQ to get all the sounds in by cutting out un-needed frequecies. Also everything can't be the lead so remember that. It's usually one or 2 lead sounds and everything else plays the background.

Thanks for taking the time to listen, I went back in made the EQ flat for those upper freq's. Its always good to have second opinions when experimenting because we sometimes forget that when we listen to and mix our own music, its easy for us to follow and know every word regardless of clarity or volume because we wrote them! So from now on I will take that into consideration.

Peace

you r correct, i have to learn more and decide whats lead whats not..
eq is something i have just started playing , but it is hard.. (or i am a it deaf.. ;0)
thanks alot for your comment, take care.
