Yes, it’s my third completed song, but I try to watch many tutorials in order to get better. Thank you!!!
I tried to upload a screenshot but when I pressed the img it asks me for URL link.
I worked on the original song, because the accapellas I found were not good quality and I also had problems with warping them. I added Percussion (the hihats were samples cause I’m not very good at making drums yet), the kicks I put them myself one by one, as well as the snares, claps the electro-toms. I also added some effects like impacts and risers, which were also samples.
The synths I made them one by one, with midi, using Serum. it wasn’t very hard since I play the piano. I identified the key of the song and I just constructed over it. the same goes for the Basses and Subs.
For the vocal chops on the drop, I cut some vocal sounds from the chorus of the accapella (Like As and Es), and I transposed the key in order to create a melody. This is it mainly regarding how I made the song.
However, I would appreciate if you provided me a feedback for the mixing. I asked some friends and one said the hihats are a little bit too loud. any other observations or advice would be really welcome.
I am especially enjoying the latest episode which analyzes each of the elements in the mix. Gonna give it another listen on mys studio monitors (as opposed to in my car) to really hear what's going on in the mix. Well done!

This is truly the best way to learn all ins and outs of mixing. Dezz knows how to explain things in a way anybody can understand. This clear way of explaining convinced me to sign up for the Mixlessons online course! Thanks Dezz! Keep up the good work!

I found Dezz on you tube and just fell into a whole new world of learning. And it led me to this techmuze podcast, which i must add is short sweet and really gets you thinking about a number of topics.but it doesn't end there.
