Impressive synths. What do you use? Hardware?
EQ your high freq. 16k-20k they are lacking. Just a bit of a boost will make the track seem x2 times more alive.
~2.15 to much resonance on the cut.
For the most part, I used 3xOsc, Nexus, and the dBlue Glitch VSTe. I have a Korg NanoKontrol, used it for levels adjustment, and an AudioFX 5+1 headset (the sound quality is incredible :D ). As for the EQing, I actually had the high end a lot more prevalent to begin with, but it drowned out some of the other aspects of the song. Also, the cut is supposed to have that much resonance, it's the effect I was aiming for to compliment the glitching on the other instruments.
Thanks tons for the excellent review!
Wow man impressive composing.
Really nice. Everything is perfect. I'm givving the 9 cause i really dont enjoy the drums. They lack bass and punch.
The strings at ~1.10-1.20 could be a little louder.
The piano is a tad to soft and muffled.
Amazing guitar work.
Oh.. and the thing your missing is vocals ^^ or just some vocal harmonizations. I have a nice sample pack im willing to give you :) hit me up if you're interested.
With the drums, I know what you mean. It's really annoying me. Others have said the same thing about the drums before, in other songs I've made. I'm going to do this song again though, and I'll do my best to fix them. It's totally maddening, not being able to make them punchy!
And yes, I'm considering vocals. I might just sing though, but thanks heaps for offering me that sample pack, man. I really appreciate it :3
I'm really glad you like this; I though it wasn't that great. I'll start working on some lyrics and melodies, so look out for the resubmit of this :3
EDIT: i totally fixed the drums if you're interested in relistening. Hope they're a little better.
Sounds good. Not really ambient. More like dark chillout. Nice reverb on the drums. I dont really enjoy the bassline... You should try taking it down and octave or new bassline.
Some mastering flaws. The bass+drums overcompress the pads and some points, im guessing you have a limiter on youir main channel, take it down a notch.
Yo wassup man?
I see you've been practicing your fast beat's a?
Really cool song, i bit short though, i just got into it and in ended ;/
But everything else was perfect, couldn't find any sync flaws, nicely gathered melody and sound, perfect like alwasy :)
How's your dnb going? Did you finaly decide to make some or you rather stick with your genre? :)
You get a 5 but i expect a long version ;}
heh, i've been practicing my dnb, can't ya tell with this song XD? No, I joke I jest, the snares in this song are horrible, but I will post my DnB songs on an another account, so to seperate the styles.
Thanks for the review man ^^.
Okey something new from you :)
I liked this to no end man :)
The mellody was a killer, overall generic DnB beat, but that mellody.... It's just amazing :)
I had no idea you could be this good at DnB :)
Good job :) keep at it :)
5/5 from me :)
3 reviews in 2 minutes... you suck!!!
Now its 4...hehehehe :P
Thanks for the review!
I see MAJOR imrovement since the your first song :)
I liked the overall feel of it, the choir you used fited the song nice.
Background melody was good.
The lead (Flute?) was a little to loud in my opinion but it was okey :)
Learn using some effects, reverb , delay, filters those sort of things :) you'll be surprised with how much better the song sounds.
If your gonna make classical get some good samples :)
PS: If you want i can ask MaestroSorrow and some of the other guys that make classical music here to give your music a taste and give you some pointers , advice maybe even samples? Couse i'm not relly into classical and i cant give you decent advice on making music in that genre, just in general :)
See the review i gave your other song for some general advice
hehehe, i already critiqued milkmandan, and maestrow a bit....well, more like praised, but hell, i guess it heavily influenced me
tnx for review, im doing my best to figure out ACID inside out
Okey the track was nice but if you dont mind me givving you a few pointers for future work.
I can deffenetly hear ALOT of talent in you, but you are making a couple of newbie (dont take this the wrong way :) when i started making music i made them to) mistakes
Okey here they are.
The first thing is to try not to repeat a sertain non-beat sample.
For example that reversed crash (it's a reversed crash right?) you played it WAY to much it takes your attention off the song. Try to use those kind of samples when your doing transitions, breaks or crossovers, couse when you hear a reved crash you expect a cross over or a break, and when you hear it just play and nothing happens... well you get the idea :)
Equlization is very VERY important, the kick that you used in this song was very badly equalized, to loud, it distorted the rest of the song.
The melodies you used were very nice, but i noticed ther are all lead. Try adding something constant to you songs that doesnt take your attation much but it is there.
Say a synth back melody, or a pad you get the idea. But keep it background.
Cross overs are very important, try do use them.
Say your switching from one melody to another. Or going from intro to main song. Make a rev crash before the new melody starts then a crash.
That is the simplest cross/transition you can do :) with time you'll learn to make them better and more interesting, couse they are really important.
Thats all i can think of :) hope you arent taking my advice as abuse or anything, i just wanna help couse i see the mistakes i made when i learned to make music :)
i do know my mistakes....only one huge prob......
....i have no idea where the percussion is ;_;
im still working around this program, and there are alota effect wif nice names (equlization being one of many)
but i'v been trying in vain >.<
thou tnx for the review, be ready for updates on all my songs X] hopefully can reach the "complete" stage
Okey second part :)
So this part i think is a little more deep than the first one.
Nice cross overs, nice brake down part.
Do i sense some Bennasi in there somewhere??? :P
All in all it is a very profesional sounding track, worthy of a club if you ask my :)
PS: I'm interested in remixing this :) consider it and if your game contact me
Or at that mail :)
I want to make it a little more hard, maybe bring in some tribal elemnts, and all out hard-tech
Thanks alot mate for all of your reviews, ive sent you an email so hope that arives, and added you to msn.
You know lots about music mate, this song did origanly go on for 10:04.
For house it is nice
Dont know why you put it under techno, it's really house if you ask me...
I'm not really into house that much, but this track i like.
The hard core mood synths you used were amazing. Really brings some liife into the track, they send you into space :)
Nice beats, nice bass line.
5 in originality, couse it's preaty much comercial grade club house.
5/5 :) keep um commin
