Well, It has everything that 8-bit arcade-ish song needs - fast tempo, catchy melody and ancient sound card noises. Could be a bit longer I guess.
Not really my genre, but I like overall feeling of this song, pretty dark vibes, good sounding bass and beat and it never gets repetitive, which is nice..
Sound quality and mixing are also on very high level, at least I think :)
hey m8 i apreci8 that u r8 it gr8
First thing that got my attention was that kick, really nice punchy stuff! Bassline sounds cool as well, teh dubstep-ish sounds keep that interesting and overall composition is good, it doesnt get boring at any part.
I only dont like that pluck thingy at 1:33/2:57, It´s like... too "sharp" or something, at least for my ears.
Overall really nice piece.
It's a Sakura Oriental Pluck. I considered replacing it with a Sylenth1 Key, but I got lazy and decided not to.
Otherwise, thanks for taking the time to review! I really appreciate it!
Ouch, I think you broke my eardrums.
That "lead" at the begging and the middle is extremely loud and high pitched - besides my ears, it's killing all the other instruments. Second lead (1:10) is a bit better though it has some weird cracking in. I kinda like that kick and bass combination, snare is too silent.
Song's arrangement is nothing special, part after 3:36 is exactly same as the 1:10, it should have some melody variation.
You have much to learn dude. 2/5
I know, but I couldn't make the snare any louder. Also, I can't save my tracks so I get 7 hours at the most to work on them. And I don't think "Ouch, I think you broke my eardrums" is inspiring or helpful. Rethink you reviewing and just stay with what was wrong with it instead of adding some dumb sarcastic comment.
Hi, thx for explaing me how review for review topic works :)
This thingy is super atmosperic, it could totally fit to some noir movie. Mix and sound quality are kinda.. professional, really nice to listen.
Nice to hear that the atmosphere works! Thanks a lot for the kind words.
imo it´s kinda repetitive for regular listening, but it could fit to some game for sure.
I like the mix, it´s all pretty clean, maybe that "second-melody thing" that starts in 0:23 could be a bit louder and also I have feeling that snare is too much on left, but thats on purpose propably, I just like drums more centered :)
Surely it'll be less repetitive when I hash it out some more. It's just a concept at this point.
Ah, the square leads I need to fit into the spectrum a little better since it's getting drowned out. Yup, snare being left like that is done on purpose (probably didn't notice the kick actually being a little right, eh? ;]) Most of my tracks have the snare on the left like that. I used to keep everything drum-related centered, but it never sounded "right" to me (that's subjective, of course).
'preciate the sentiments!
According to the title, I have expected something more dramatic :P
It sounds like soundtrack from some nice adventure-ish game. It´s quite repetitive imo, I would put some non-drum part there. Also drums could be a bit quiter. Overall I like it.
haha @Macrophone I know, it should be more scary sounding, right?
Non-drum parts are a good idea. I wouldn't mind taking a stab at a remix of this.
Thank you for the review. Hey, people are starting to say this is worthy of being game music. Where are my collaborators hiding? Use one of my songs!
In short, I like it. A lot. It has relaxing and at same time energic atmosphere + that vocals keep that interesting. My ears say that mix is fine too. Really nice work. That kinda song I put to my music player and rape replay button. :)
Cheers, glad you enjoyed it!
