Very interesting beginning, fresh and interesting, very good first impression to the listener!
Good staccato chord leads you put there, same goes for pads and sweeps! Nice decision to put "intro drums" to keep variety at 0:20. As for the voices, well made, all of them are in tone, they don't sound "tense" or forced, and there's no white noise in the recording of it! Very good aswell! :D
BOOM! Yeah, that's what I'm talking about, this is something that makes Dubsteps, well, "dubsteps" haha, the classic "explosion" at 0:31. Nice saws and leads, they sound pretty well mixed, the saw doesn't overshadow the lead, and viceversa; i like how the saws sounds agressive, yet they are so warm it doesn't hurt your ears, just like a sharp blade used incredibly accurate (again, my respect to the mastering!). The chord progression is very creative! I was thinking it was starting to get repetitive, but then...
...Bam! chord progression changed at 1:04, nice move of your part! Good "bell" sounds to introduce the other chord progression (1 minute and yet, the atmosphere of the song sounds diverse!). Pads pads pads! Good good good mixing there, you didn't lose it yet! :D
Juicy way to go back to first chord progression, i say the same thing as 0:06-0:29. :P When it came close to 1:57 i thought: "well, back to the first progression", but NO! Because...
...You didn't start it as the first one! And well done in the drums! Implementing real drum sounds was a nice move, also new chord progressions appearing... Not repetitive at all!
What else i can say here? I'm crying of joy :'D
Let me explain how this part felt, it's like a refreshing bucket of cold water in a very very VERY sunny and hot day. Good "somewhat 8-bit sound thingy" lead you used there. And wait, is that a piano i hear there? Give this man a cookie!
"Hold the brakes drums!" Haha i like how the drums stop here. I feel like entering a huge and large heavenly passage as this part starts (thanks to pads). Freshy ending, that fade-out outro makes you "levitate" in your imagination, perfect, just perfect!
Nice mastering, nice vocals, nice song! This song motivated me to do a serious review of it, i added it to favs! So yeah, ZERO! (Just kidding). I agree with what LunyAlex said: "Intimidating NGADM'14 submission." I hope you the best for this contest!
This is one of these reviews that I'll remember when making music. Thanks for taking the time to write such detailed review.
O.M.G this sounds soo cool and groovy, i LOVE how you used those pizzicato strings! And nice guitar riffs with echo and delay! SINCERELY, ONE OF MY FAVES.
I'd be glad to remix this if possible (with drums and possibly some brasses), but, wow, respect!
It follows a single chord progression, but the fact that it only lasts 2 minutes and you use a diverse variety of sounds, makes 5 starts for me! WELL DONE!
Wow, lol. That means a lot comin from you, bro. You wrote the beat for my track that's currently #1 on the Hip-hop Modern chart for this site. Didn't know if you knew that, but there ya go, haha.
SURE YOU CAN REMIX IT! If you turned this into an epic hip-hop beat, that'd be awesome beyond awesomeness. Do it, bro! Message me when you get it uploaded so I can check it out!
Glad I could release something you enjoy so much, man. Keep doin what you do!
Awsome sound design, you never stop impressing me!!! For me its perfect, i cant say anything i disagree here, its totally awsome! Its impressive how you made the arpeggios by yourself, it says a lot about your skills! i envy you now! :D
Oh, hey there!
"Awsome sound design"
Dude, these are just random preset synths from Morphine. xD Though the rhythmic bounciness of the pad and the main 'lead' coming in at 0:26 WERE done by me, and that mean 'lead' is another preset (from Sytrus though) that I edited some. As for the giant bass pad, that was just another preset... :P
What I DID do was layer all the effects on it in the mixer, which took a good while.
"Its impressive how you made the arpeggios by yourself"
...randomly clicking notes to make an arpeggio is impressive now? Coooool.
"i envy you now! :D"
xD Well, thank you. But seriously, you shouldn't. I really can't do sound design.
Woah nice! What vst you used? how you made this?!? i must know!
Three words: Fruity Soundfont Player. (And good mixing. I had to learn how to pan the instruments as if we were listening to a symphony orchestra.) A lot of sounds in this came from the Touhou soundfont, although there were some SFs which I sourced from the Audio Forums.
There is a thread on the NG Audio Forums which links you to 800+ soundfonts; that one will come in very, very handy. ^_^
Woah! i see you took my advices (i though they were useless xD) Anyways, great, now were talking, i liked a lot the recordings you made with scared/nervous emotions, but angry im my opinion needs more emotion, but its me and my crazy talk... I think im refering to explode, thats ok. If you were voice acting in an animation, i would feel connected with the emotions, (you put of course). You seem to control the way you talk with your emotions, again great work! And i hope you reach high spots with your talent, Dont waste it :D
It was nice! But it was kind of repetitive... Make more parts to the song, i mean, chorus, verses or something like that, You can use more sounds or effects in the song, it helps the environment! Drums can be improved too, try adding more dynamics to them. But i liked it, its enjoyable, im gettin down to this :D
Nooooo!!!! This was so perfect until i heard a lack of bass, im crying now, this beat seems very promising, heck... That is my only complain here :) In my opinion, houses doesnt need so many chord variety, but it could be gighly accepted here. You sound very original, ill keep an eye on you, keep your work!
Aww, I could add one if you really want. The only reason I didn't was because I'm not very good at making bass, I could try though. Thanks for the review!
Lyrics are perfect, just need more power, but the instrumental need work! Try adding drums, this way the rap will be more juicy and make our heads bang with the rhythm! More instruments are needed here. But dont get me wrong, i liked the whole song, im just telling you technically you have to make more improvement to instrumentals! I hope this help! :D
Not bad, its nice, but its repetitive, that means: boring, try to change that, the chord progression is the same all over the song, you could use more instruments too, keep your work!
Yea, I knew it was repetitive when I submitted it, I just decided to take a risk and submit it anyway. It didn't quite pan out, but I really like this progression so I might try to revisit it in the future. Thanks, though.
My question here is: Why is this TOO short? Pieces like this have a lot of variation, lot of sections, obviously more lenght, orchestral piece should be epic, this is not... But its enjoyable, keep your work! (with that i refer to make your songs larger xD)
