Hey guys, so I made a cover of a song by Leslie Hall called Tight Pants (Body Rolls)
I've been in love with this song since I heard it. Made the cover to try and get it out of my head and I realized that I make my songs far too empty. I've tried quite a bit, but being limited to a single DMG with a single LSDJ cartridge I don't feel is a good enough excuse to have such an empty sounding track.
I've tried levelling instruments, putting a bit more in the wav channel, filling up the pulse channels with as much as I can that's complimentary (Kick is pulse, immediately chain a bass rhythm behind each kick while using the other pulse channel for vocals and wav for a complimentary melody or bass)
I've also noticed that my noise game is pretty shitty. My drums sound pretty tinny and empty and small. I think it's because I can't stand sitting here listening to the same sound OVER AND OVER to try and fine tune in a sound I'm going for (Hi-hat/snare is pretty simple, but I can't do anything else and even my hi-hat/snare are pretty junky.)
The BIGGEST problem I have with this song is that I don't know how to get the intro to sound any better either.... I mean, if you listen to the original it's pretty... Dissonant and odd, and I just can't peg that tone without making it just sound like shit. HUGE ups to anyone who doesn't mind helping me through that. (Particularly the vocals)
My biggest concern for my music is that I've looked into lots of instrument guides and I just can't find meatier sounds.
Any cc on getting my song to sound more full or just the song in general (Especially improving the intro and the bridge before the ending chorus) is greatly appreciated.
