Question Smellymau5 Daft Sureno

Tried doing a Deadmau5 type track, a little like "ghost n stuff"
came out like this bit of a D5 Daft Punk sound imo, bare in mind it hasn't been eq'd yet and very lightly levelled and automated still to finish arrangement and mix down

Testmau5

Well, you know my opinion of Deadmau5..

Apart from sounding a little 'thin' and sterile (), I like the subdued prog/trancey riff (which is dead cool when it drops) and those ascending/descending staccato bits.. My advice .. drop the Deadmau5 emulation, keep that riff and follow your own vision for the drums, perc and general backing track.. You've got a knack for naggingly catchy synth riffs Sureno but follow rabbit ears, not mouse ones

Yeah it definately needs a mix down to give it some oomph.
Thanks for this feedback very constructive and I need this at the moment as I feel I'm trying to find myself and still very confused. I hope with the help of my peers here one day il suss it

Very nice!

I might have been tempted to go with sampled sounds for some of the riffs, or at least layer in some sample based sound just for a bit more organic richness.

But really good - nice groove - like it

Not loops, I mean actual instruments. For eg subtly layering in a piano with synth stabs can often give them a bit more depth etc.
