Yeah, that song that's played on the radio constantly that everyone is sick to death of

I first remixed it at school, using only Cubase's default synthsizers and midi drum kit, during a music tech lesson when the teacher wasn't in school.

I put it on my mate's USB stick for him, then he musta sent it to a couple, because I got messaged saying it was good (it wasn't, it was using all default sounds!), and I decided to make another because it's so easy to do (130 bpm exactly, same chords throughout the whole song)!

So, it's on my profile, comments and criticism? How can I improve it (apart from the bum note at 2:47)?

I've whipped up another version, what you guys think of this? Better? Worse? I'll probably replace the one on my profile with this one.

Put the second version up on my profile now!


I've made a few more changes, but I think I rushed it a bit.

k, so before larning guitar i was real big into edm (electronic dance music) so i hear remixes and things all the time. its a good start but you really need to go more in depth with it, all in all not bad to start with, but could definitely go a lot deeper into it but thats just my .02

What sort of thing? My problem is I don't know where to go from there.

yeah... not all that different from the original... you could have played it and i wouldn't have known the difference, but its a good start as The Jezereck said

It sounds pretty good but it doesn't quite have the groove of the original. You're a bassist so you could be a simple bass line in there.


EDIT: I'm meaning is that your remix is mostly chords and a beat but the original has a bass doing straight quarter notes in the chorus and the power chords from a guitar. The chorus has the same style as the verse.

Actually, I did that in the first remix, I forgot to in this one.

And I know exactly what you mean, it gives it beat, this one seems to lack structure.

That is really good, but if I hear that song one more time I will stab myself in the face. Hmmm, same chord progression as Iron Maiden - Phantom of the Opera.

Sounds like a carbon copy of the original.

If that's what you were going for, you accomplished it - with spades.

EDIT: Apparently, I missed the point of this remix. So, just ignore this post
Fuck the Scunci Steamer and all who use it!

It was ok, but you didn't do anything crazy different. Maybe beef up the synths etc, because they sound a little thin and in the background in places. If you beef up the stuff you did maybe with some compression, EQ, etc, then I think it will sound a lot better.

Where did you get the acapella vocal?

Thanks for the tips. Alot of the synths are very bassy, so boosting them too much would sound horrible. I probably should go through it and EQ it properly, and compress some tracks.

I got the acapella from another forum, not sure if I'm allowed to post it here. Let me know if you want it, I can give you the site or I can just upload that acapella for you.

Dude IMO i think for the chorus you should go all drum and bass on it

i'm stupid but how did you get the vocals alone on a track and take out the instruments on the original?
