First, the positive stuff:
The mastering, I thought, was good for the most part. Nice balance on all the instruments, and no clipping problems I could here. Also, the song flowed nicely from one part to the next, and felt natural as it progressed. Also, you didn't begin or end with drums, which I liked.
Now, I have nothing negative, per se. However, I couldn't exactly tell what you were trying to do with the song. Was it Dance? Was it Trance? Was it both? If you add, say, a high-pitched sliding synth, you'll have an awsome Trance song. Add more prominant drums with a few extra synths, and you have an amazing dance song. As it was, it felt... incomplete.
That being said, it was still a very, very good song, but I would love to see a remake of this in the future.
Thank you for such a great review ;)
I don't know, I'm not really trying to hit any certain genre, which is why I have trouble actually choosing the right genre.
I don't really have an idea of which genre I'm going to follow when I begin a project, I just use and create sounds that sounds good and fit together, and I focus a lot on the melody.
I've just gotten my hands on the plugin called Nexus, which is loaded with awesome instruments, but there's too many sounds in there, that you'd feel cheap for using, as they've been quite difficult to create originally, and if I use them, I don't really show any talent other than mixing them together.
Music the whole time!!!
I like that. There was music from beginning to end. It didn't fade in with drums, nor did it take two minutes to fade out with drums.
The song, overall, was a big ol' can of AwsomeSauce. I didn't really mind the mic quality.
Not really too much to say other than great song!
This is EXTREMELY cool. Almost Epic Indie. I don't have much to say on this, other than it was awsome. The only thing I (maybe?) found was that the wind? noise abruptly cuts of, seemingly unaturally, at 1:06. Not sure if this was on purpose or not, but I would have liked to have heard it fade out as opposed to just stopping. This isn't really a complaint, though, still thought the song was fucking sweet.
Also, this would be pretty epic with some choruses. That, and maybe fade out with a melody and the drums at the same time.
Though, once again, just suggestions.
I will definately be downloading this.
Yeah the ending had a problem. I bitmucnhed the end and it sounded crap, but I couldn't edit the whole song, just the end, but it took out the wind.
It sounds better than the bitmucher :P
Thanks for the review man :D
You goddmaned son of a bitch.
You make it difficult for people like me to stand up to something this good. My only three complaints about this song is that I would have liked the hi-hat to do something more, I think snare-roll build-ups are overused, and that outro noise was awful. The mastering was flawless (as always), however, and besides that outro, this song is just freakin' great. I also loved the tom-toms in the background. Didn't even catch on to those till the second time listening to it.
This song is great.
Fuck you for setting the bar so high :P
-Could you also check out and review my last three submissions, (Kelvin, Cadence of the Setting Sun, and For Whom the Dark Should Fear) and review them? I know they've been submitted for a while now, but I still like the criticism.
Anyways, another excellent job on a song well done. Can't wait for more.
It's been a while
Although this genre of techno isn't my cup of tea (I actually despise it), you've made it so I can actually listen to it. And that stretched tom was kick ass. It was my favorite part of the song. I would try to offer constructive criticism, but I would end up bitching about the genre, and say nothing about the song. So, good job on turning a shit genre into something... not shit. And actually pretty damn good.
I don't know why this has such a low score.
I thought it was very well done. Smooth, relaxing, and with an awsome taste of the oriental at some parts. I didn't hear a thing wrong with it. You've got a five and a download from me.
Great review! And thanks (:
And the score... well i guess newgrounds needs more 2 minute songs
with ADHD synths and D&B drums than relax club / ambient ;) zerobombers ftw
But this has the potential to be fuckin' epic. Simply, where the song currently stops, just abruptly add in drums, and switch out the current sounds for deep, kick-ass synths. And then make an entire, full song out of that. But anyways, that was still pretty close to the real thing, and was really well done.
That was very, very good. I just wish that the higher synths had a bit more volume to them. I was expecting them to "punch" me in the face, and they never did. But besides that, everything was kick-ass. VERY good job =D
i try your tips too :) it gonna rock then more i hope. helpfull comments , thank yo.
You've gone and done fucked ambient up in the best way possible. I liked the almost Tokyo feel of this track, very, VERY good indeed. The melody was chatchy as hell, it almost seems as if this could support lyrics (but not that sappy shit that's all to common to techno). I will be downloading this, excelent work.
Glad you enjoyed it, and I would be more then happy to add lyrics if I could find a singer :P
As it should be. I enjoyed this the entire way thorugh, you switched it up enough so it didn't get repetitive by Ambient standards. All in all, great job. I will be downloading this one for sure. And also, nice addition of drums =D
Thanks a bunch!
