The Long Sobs

Updated version of recent Lo-Fi House track.  Kick is layered Volca samples.  Bass is upright bass sample loop from collection of jazz samples.  Pad is Korg M1.  I added ghost notes to hats using Ableton beat repeat plugin.

    Cool track Steve, it's a nice after party vibe. I agree will on the chords at around 2:30, they don't quite fit in. Maybe try taking one of the other sounds out when they get introduced just to keep things a bit clearer in the mix. Other than that great work!

    Wooh love how this breaks when the bass comes in! Have you got reverb on the bass though? One thing I will say is that the additional chords that comes in at 2.30 actually cloud it and don't sit that well, I think you can ride on that groove without filling out all the space quite so much

      Thanks Al. There is some reverb on the bass but obviously a little too subtle. I'm guilty of filling space because I'm afraid of a track sounding boring if I let any part ride too long. But you're right, less could be more in this case.
