Thank god you left quite the impression on me with one of your other songs. I saw you're name when you posted a review on some skyrim video, and I was like "HEY! I know this guys name! lemmie see what he's up to!" And then i found this... and its nice...
Now as far as a critical review goes, I don't have much complain about. I like how you made good use of 3xOsc and side-chaining. The song really progresses and changes as it goes, but it simultaneously maintains a very nice solid flow. I feel like the lead seems to overpower some of the other instruments at certain parts. All of this being said, Very nice song! Give this bitch a name!
...Like you rolled your face back and forth along your keyboard to make this. It doesn't follow any pattern at all, it doesnt have any sense of flow. It's almost like you truly put zero forethought into making this. I have no idea how you thought this sounded pretty good. Even after you added in the "beat" of completely random hats claps and kicks, you had to have noticed that this was the equivalent of a child with down syndrome trying to play the piano while wearing boxing gloves.
You know i really wish you would've written a more constructive review that actually mattered to me, the ending of your review was completely unnecessary and a waste of words. I'm sure you could have included some advice or something helpful to a beginner like me. please next time write something that's worth my time reading and helpful to me.
Try to branch out in the range of frequencies that you reach. Most of your song is in the lower half of the spectrum. Other than that, its a good job for sure.
Thank you :)
You had best be finishing that little golden bit from 0:44 - 1:14 as sooon as possible. >:D
I liked the piano intro, but i dont know how i feel about the detuned transition out from the intro. It kinda felt like the higher frequencies should have come out more then. However, once the DnB drums come in, it picks right back up and gets back into win-mode. I like your mario sampling with the "Hooah" noise. I didn't think that the little detuned bridge you put in at roughly the 4min mark fit in very well with the flow of the song. But I'm sure the if I listened to the song a good 4 or 5 times over, it would grow on me so take what I say with a grain of salt I suppose.
Overall, you made a very nice remix that was quite original and definitely avoided being bland. I think that most of the chorus and music is in the lower frequencies and maybe should be brought up a little bit, just because its a very good melody. But if that would take away from Drum and Bass feel of the song, than I understand.
Awesome feel to it, but it doesn't seem quite done yet. As if i'm one to talk XD check out my music if you want, I made a final bowser mix along with some other SM64 songs. Good Job!
Ah yeah, the idea of that was, first a classical piano part and then a big orchestral part.
And after that everything turns hardcore (drum N bass).
Ah it's like Mario get's hit by the beats =]
Ah yeah, I just didn't want to end the track so I added a little Dubstep-ish part.
Oh well, one day I'll make a remastered version. :p
Thanks DJPS! ;) I'll check-out your stuff right now!
Glad to see that you're not dead :D you got yourself one kickasss bumpin tune here. I expected nothing less from you though, keep it up! Who knows, maybe your next song will come out in like... 100 days? haha
Haha yep still alive. Just took me a long time to get all my software back.
Hopefully I can bring you a song sooner.
Thanks for the review.
I got no problems with your intro, Its got a nice feel. You might want to add la deep non-saw bassline in the background once you start getting your melody in becuase your current bass that you have is more of a harmony than a bassline so I'm left looking for something to fill that void. I'm personally not a big fan of the wobbly pad thing from 1:35 - 2:03, but that's just me. You're build-up to 2:03 really lets me down. My ears expect to hear some kickass melody with a pumpin funky bass, but instead you got the light bridge. I mean, it sounds good as a bridge, but I don't really think it flows well. Like, it sounds like your first half and second half are 2 different songs. And it ends very abruptly. You might want to get a more defined ending one way or another.
I tried my hardest to pick this apart. Take it with a grain of salt, cuz this is mostly opinion. You got one crazy style dude, i dig it.
Woah, thanks. :D I'm glad I asked you for a review, lol. I'm pretty much going to change everything you just said. I listened again and you're exactly right.
Thank you. :D
Not bad at all
It feels like your deep bass is clipping a bit. It also feels like your lead is occasionally overpowered. Other than that, you got yourself a pretty badass little tune here. Nice collab!
ps. check out my stuff if you're bored. :)
Thanks. Hope your face is melted on the keys. :)
You're gettin there. First off, you gotta start mastering stuff. You're piano is very clicky, try lowering the high end a bit. You're bass is way too heavy for the light feeling presented by the piano and is kind of bland. Try throwing some patterns at it rather than just long held notes. Go EQ it and lower everything past the mid-low frequencies. For your wind instrument in the background, try making it chords instead of single notes. Also, try adding some ambient style drums or something to add some depth. maybe a woodblock with a reeverb and a delay or something along those lines. You have a pretty basic idea here, and it's not bad. its just rough around the edges.
Also, check out my stuff if you get bored :)
I still only have a basic understanding of FL Studio, so I have absolutely no clue what most of that means. Thanks for the input, though.
Not too shabby
Its not bad at all for shootin for a generic techno song. Its kinda bland tho. When you added in the saw instrument at :40, I was expecting it to build on to the harmony, but rather, it just matched the previous harmony and kinda let me down. You're melody that you introduce at :58 could be a bit better. Try to expand and reach a larger range of notes rather than staying within the same 4 or 5 notes. Your odd piano-like synth is out of tune in the 1:30 area. The bridge that follows that is in a different key. Key changes are hard to pull off effectively, and when you leaded into and out of your bridge, at 1:40 and 2:30, they ruined the flow for me. As for your ending, try adding a light Pad or something to layer in the background, because you faded from your jumpy chorus to the lone light trance synth.
Take everything that I said with a grain of salt, because in the end, its mostly just my opinion. You have pretty good song here, and you should keep at it.
~P.s. check out some of my songs too :) I'm right above you on the submission list XD
Thank you for the review, thats just the kind of feedback I need.
Glad you enjoyed it
