Everything flows, but I don't know if I'm feeling the sidechain continuation at 1:22. It's essential in the rest of the mix to keep clarity but in that particular section with the filtered kick, I feel is the wrong effect as a whole. I like it on your crash sample though...play with it a little. Just a friendly suggestion. Love your work :)
I like the song...a few things to say:
Your bottom end the whole first 1:30 of the song was way too loud. I appreciate the booming kick but your bass synth was a little too "in the mix" try compressing it, or raise it up an octave. There is such a thing as too much bass.
You have good percussion but after listening through the whole song a few times...I don't think I like your choice of kick. My tastes tend to lean to more punchy kick. Yours is a reeverb-y, boom-y kind and i think you might have too much going on to use that sample.
Keep up the good work, im suprised your song doesnt clip, because of how much low end there is. Did you master this track or was is luck :P? Anyways good job, good track, keep on going.
I over compressed the kick and bass on accident because I never got to listen to it without headphones. Being my headphones suck I over did it. I have found ways over the past few songs to remove clipping if there is any.
This song is best listened to with average headphones.
Good, a few things
I think some of your levels are wrong. The offbeat bass, for example, is a tad bit too loud. Your kick needs to be WAY more driving and loud also. Your piano doesnt sound too high quality, but that could be fixed with some FX and mastering. The synths are good but i can tell they are presets. Maybe not? If not then add some oompf too it. Also at 2:00 that gated synth is way too loud...ouch.
The good things though: I'm loving the progression and the melody. and the percussion is good. clarity is also good. grats on weekly top and overall nice job dude.
I really like this track you got here.
I totally understand where you're coming from...NG has almost made its own genre of trance/techno music and it almost seems everyone hates when people don't stick to it.
You did a great job building up to energetic spots...great use of drums. I love the orchestra its classic trance which is awesome. I don't think its repetitive at all theres a lot of tracks out there with worse repetitiveness then this. Nice melodies and good synths used. Your filter use and panning adds great diversity...
The only thing really "missing" is a supersaw or something of that sort driving some huge melody but i dont even think that would have fit in this track. Maybe a stronger kick also...not much criticism here.
10/10 5/5 DL'd Great work
yeah, glad to know someone knows where I'm getting at lol
and ur right, i guess i couldve used a bit stronger kicks
thanks for the lovely review
I appreciate the support :]
I love you
You are an amazing composer i must say. You always give me chills. This is completly relaxing. Truly amazing! 11/10 6/5 :P!
I just gotta give you props. I saw this i was like wtf porn music?? it gave me a rather good laugh listening to it. Maybe you should make your own buisness :P
In other words it is very funky good job overall nice groove. shakers might be a bit too loud thats all :P and a bit repetitave
Hey sorry I got school too now so hehe took me a while.
There really isnt much that i can think about saying critisism wise...I think its always cool in 3-step to take the chords you use and arp the first 3 notes of it.
Well i have nothing else to say. It sounds good mastering wise. Its not the best song but hey theres still nothing i can find BAD in it either =D
Looking forward to your ocean song :P
Hey, Drumr. Good to know I'm not the only one whose school starts earlier. :P
Well, that's fine if you can't think of any criticism, though I quite like that idea of an arp in 3-step... sounds pretty good, actually, I'll have to experiment. >:}
Well, glad you think it sounds good masteringwise, though it could do with some extra mastering - see SBB's response. :P
Thanks for stopping by to review, Drumr, glad you liked it. :) Ocean Depths is definitely something to look forward to, let me tell you that... >:}
HOLY SHIT RUN
ZOMGZ0RZ TEH COCK IS COMING FOR MEH!!11!1!one1!
Alright not the best orchesta samples ever but good sounding. Definately dark and suspenseful. I like your drums. loving the big tom sound. Its almost all in a lower octave...would have been cool to have a faster melody in the upper octave then that one violin line at 2:00. OOH or maybe you could have layered so it sounded like a whole violin section playing. It sounds kind of thin.
Anyways great job i would use this in a flash if i had any artistic creativity! its all musical =\
So while im writting this its totally lagging like i type a word and it take about 2 seconds for it to catch up...too many features in this rebuild, not enough brandwidth. Same kinda things happen with you or is it my computer :P?
Oh and drop me a few reviews once in a while I'd like it =)
Holy shit =D
Poooowwwwwww...okay well here we go! Nice hehe this is my new favorite since Nova definately.
Gotta love vanguard gated synths :P very nice use of it...you chose very suiting synths for this song i just think it all goes together nicely. And nice progressions
Hmm I like your melodies and you have enough variety in them so it does keep you on your toes...
Critisism...Hmm well let me think. I think that one more melody...or maybe even a harmony would be awesome but with a very prominant saw synth. Your drums have gotten better and I love your rolls with kick and snare...only thing is maybe you needed the snare maybe 5% more volume or just a totally different sample.
Keep it going...I'm trying to get another song out here so expect something soon =) talk to ya later
Hey, Drumr! ...I thought I said this was my best? Why are you so surprised? XD
Really, though, thanks a lot that you like it so much! :) Actually, though, I was thinking the song was beginning to get repetitive - intro, main part, interlude, main part, interlude, main part, ending. Notice how I play the main part three times? And another melody, I think, would either mean extending an interlude, (hurts diversity) having to play the main part again, (hurts diversity, and I think I've done it enough already :P) or add it to a main part, which I'm afraid will hurt clarity. :\ Aah well.
Actually, the snare roll starts out quietly but gets really, really loud... if I make it louder, I'm afraid it may overpower the song, even if just for a moment. ;)
But thanks a lot for the review, Drumr! :) I've actually got a song quite similar to this, though from April, that I'll be submitting soon. And I can't wait to hear YOUR song... >:) Glad you liked my song, and thanks again for the review.
The original song is in a triplet feel...or a 3 feel...this was in sixteeth feel or 4.
The lyrics and your music totally clash i think.
You should have also kep that end melody going a bit longer you faded out too quick.
Other then that i liked it good job. Gotta love Basshunter!
