lol my songs give me headaches.



I was trying to go for like an 80s type feel. Using a disco bassline and some weird ****. I'm using laptop speakers so...yeah, it's going to sound pretty muddy and nasty.

Any tips, I know it sucks, I'm just curious what are some things I'm doing wrong.

if ur going for that kind of 1989 trancey/techno sound id say you nailed it lol.

If you're trying to write something a bit more elaborate I suggest you make your compositions a bit more elaborate, maybe check out some IDM for inspiration.

I don't know about elaborate. I definitely need to put more changes and some more spice into it. Maybe a pad during certain parts, or some chord stabs/brass, like the horns in blue Monday or something.

I'm still working on my understanding arrangements, changes,fills,etc. I'm also trying to learn what is too much, and what is too little. I like songs like the ones by RedOne, they're very simple yet feel full.
