French House: Love Tonight

Post by Alex E » Sun Apr 18, 2010 8:36 am

Created in Ableton Live. God I love this program.
The chords were taken from an edited MC-808 preset pattern, which I feel kinda guilty about since I never use presets. Meh...

Cool stuff, although I would use the vocal sample more conservatively... I got sick of it by the end. Could also use more of a breakdown. :)

Definitely a sweet groove. I like. Thoughts:

- Make us wait longer for the kick drum at the beginning.

-Around 1:14, you filter down the main synth, which is good. This feels like a good time to tone the song down a bit more overall - including maybe killing the sample for a while. Then pump the volume back up later after building some tension.

Yeah you used the sample too much. I waited for changes but it was like the same thing all the way through. An "Oh oh babe" somewhere in there or another bit of the vocals different patterns etc.

Thanks, guys, I'll take your suggestions. :)
I guess it's kind of a rough draft.
