Hey guys PLEASE let me know what you think of my first attempt at a Chilled Drum & Bass track. This is not finished and needs work but I would like some mid-production feedback :D

Thanks guys

Thanks for the awesome feedback dude :D

Can I ask what you mean by two things you said:
1) Contrast
2) It's all incredibly smooth

I'd be greatful if you could elaborate on those points :)

Thanks again :)

Computer game menu music. Interesting concept, I like it :D

I do know what you mean and I agree with you on everything. Contrast is always good, and I do welcome all feedback so I want to listen to what you guys say :D

I will definately think about the harsh-smooth contrast idea. Cheers dude :D

Nice opening, pretty chilled out. I'd agree with JohnP, maybe a menu in a game or some kind of credits/title screen (Gran Turismo had a pretty cool Jungle track on the License screen) but it was awesome, about the harsh/smooth thing, I'm 50/50 on that, I do blend smooth and harsh sometimes. What I would say is add in some hard sub drops. If you're using FL Studio: 3xOsc, turn the volume knob on Osc 3 all the way down, and the CRS knob on Osc 1 and 2 down, then set the key to C4. This is a very clean sub bass which I use in pretty much everything, for a 'drop', just use the pitch feature in the piano roll (C5 down to C4 is pretty good, for 1 bar) Just play around but this was very good, I enjoyed it a lot, and of course this is just my opinion, the sub drops etc are just part of the 'JCW sound', your music sounds great as it is. What was your inspiration?

I do not yet actually have a bassline in the track, I was trying to see if the track could manage it without one. But I like this sub-drop suggestion. I just tried it :D

Just to clarify - by sub "drop" do you mean where the pitch bends downward? If so I believe "Philes" from the original Music had one:

Yes, Philes has it, it's like a slow or quick releasing 'Booooooom' it's hard to explain lol, but it's effective.

I know what you mean, and it is in fact one of main things that made me fall in love with Philes all over again this year when I remixed it. Such a simple yet attention grabbing feature, indeed the "drop" effect is the sex. However, I kind of don't want to steal YOUR sound, if you get me.

Lol yes indeed, it isn't -my- sound but I just meant I use them a lot and my advice was just what I'd do personally, I didn't want to sound forceful or anything that was all. :)

You did not come across as forceful mate, I mean, you yourself suggested I use it. It's my own personal feeling of not wanting to steal a sound you utilize a lot :P I understand it may not be YOUR OWN sound that you have the rights to, but I am just imagining how I might feel if it were me. I'd like it to remain your personal sound that people would attribute to YOU.

I would not like for us to become a group of Cascada's lol
