  • That’s a fun track, really great sounds!

  • Nice work, Rustik. Loving that super catchy keyboard riff, and the updated Curtis Mayfield feel in the background.

    Sounds really good! :)

    Nice speedy Job. Respect!

  • Nice. Is there like maybe 5-6 min of empty space that needs to be trimmed off the end?

    Right

    It is the house piano off EDM pack on Beat Hawk.

    Couple Major Chords basically.

    Can you edit songs on Soundcloud after you post them?

  • Really liked when you introduce the drums!

    You should make a video walkthrough :)

  • Is that James Gadson talking? Cool track!

  • @RUST( i )K Great track, I'll bet you used INCLUDE EFFECTS TRAIL when you rendered it right, this is a strange Cubasis thing, don’t ever use that setting, deselect it and just use MIXDOWN BETWEEN LOCATORS the. Set the left locator at the beginning of the track and then make sure the right locator is set just after all the effects have audibly trailed off

    Thanks so much.

    That may be a good idea.

    Maxima has the kick perfect right!

    FAC Chorus used on alot of the string leads I did with Unique

    Drives me nuts!

    Ah, makes sense. I played with him in October, backing up the trampps (playing to a track unfortunately). However, during sound check he wanted to make sure the drummer knew the disco inferno groove correctly so he jumped behind the drums to demonstrate and I got to play it with him without the track. Awesome.

    Hot tip. B)

    I actually used both of your apps on this piano solo piece I did with Korg Module.

    I'm so glad you used Unique!

  • Awesome track! Great flow in the structure and brilliant use of that dialogue sample.
    Ok, I am gonna be a dick and say that I am not feeling that piano sound. Seems too plain for an element that is driving the song forward throughout, and it sounds kind of cheap and harpsichord-like. I am not well-versed in the House genre, so it might be a typical piano sound for the genre and I wouldn’t know, so I am sorry if this is the case. It is just my humble, honest opinion. I am hearing a fuller, warmer sound, or maybe one that varies subtly and evolves a little over the length of the track, maybe just by changing effects up on different sections.
    I feel shitty for posting this because I think this track is great overall, but am hoping you might appreciate the honesty. If I seem way off-base to you, it is most likely because I am. It is just the opinion of my damaged ears and brain, after all. B)

    Bro absolutely.

    I originally had used a clav so that would have really sounded bad to you!

    The essential house piano sound is based on the M1 Korg type sound. So, I find the UVI BeatHawk piano to have nice timbres that remind me of it. Because I attempting to capture a certain era of house music the use of a cheap sound piano is fairly common actually.

    But, I will actually try some different things out tonight.

    I played and recorded the midi into BeatHawk so I can just plug some other things in to see how it sounds.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I had a suspicion it had something to do with a genre reference that I am too ignorant to catch. :D

    Shit.

    Let me look at my phone.

    I think it is the IK Voice App w/ IAP & A Damage Rough Rider(free app) into Audioshare while at red light and pulling in driveway.

  • Nice. Hate the piano sound.
