Ahhhhh this is chill.~
Haha, thanks for your review ! I hope it was a bit more gloomy... :p
I like it! Piano might be a bit loud due to where the frequency is, and it could use something to fill in the low-end towards the 2-minute onward mark (low cello or double bass maybe?) But otherwise, it gets the meaning across well, I think.
This sounds really freaking cool. As stated below, everything's coming out clear; it's just that the drive keeps sounding like it's going to erupt into this huge Amen break-ish thing but it never feels as if it... peaks. The percussion you have going currently isn't too bad, though, it sits well in the mix and fits the general style; almost a Paragon-esque thing.
In my opinion, all it needs is a bit of a better... arc, I suppose? More of a build up, bit of a tease of the melody (which you do at the beginning, very nice lead-in) and then have it climax into a euphony of amazeballs.
Yeah I get ya. I does kinda feel like it's supposed to build up into something more. I'm glad I got compared to Paragon since that style is kind of what i'm going for lol
I came in from the title expecting some sort of Halo-esque cinematic techno, bits blazing in an infernal glory of FPS carnage.
The retro sound excited me instead. :3 It's clean, light, yet driving. I'm sure you've had plenty of reviews saying the same thing, but might as well state it again. No real criticisms I can think of concerning the mix or the synths; seems like you have that whole department on lock.
5-starred, faved. :3
Might as well consider a spot saved on the compilation album for this one...
Oh man I certainly hope so. ^_^ That would be awesome.
Of course, it would be super-awesome if I managed to get first or second place, then I might be able to get something from EWQL or something like that.
Nice! I like the whole drive behind the melody. My only suggestion would be MOAR BASS, but that's just the bass-head in me talking. :P It's light, keeps a good flow, and keeps changing, which is good.
Mind checking out my submission to the contest? Good luck!
I agree. I tried to make a bass sound that fit but I just couldn't do it in time, so I had to make do with more or less no bass instrument. I've got a couple songs to review, so I'll totally add you to the list. I'll try to get around to that before long. Thanks!
Pretty okay. Maybe try some differentiation in the bass to give it a bit more depth, especially if you're giving this out for other people to use. Also, a few automated filters would help out in the lead synth, or perhaps a bit of velocity randomization. Maybe a sidechain. Who knows. :3 Just keep it varied.
Other than that, EQ's pretty good, everything's pretty crisp.
Thanks for the tips, but one question: why the hell would you sidechain a lead when it's a melody?
On the brink of DnB and Dubstep... I can imagine this turning into a hit track in either genre, but I like the hybrid you have going. The glitched drums just keep the track rolling nicely.
I liked it. It just keeps its cool throughout the entirety of the song. Maybe add a few pads here and there to fill in the gaps, but other than that, good job.
Recently trying to get into trance myself; a few new tracks on my profile, if you might be interested. Again, good work.
Ironic, I guess, since it's raining quite heavily down where I'm at. The guitar riff is just insanely catchy to me, and the mellow vocals perfectly accent the tone of the guitar to me. Nice work.
Thanks! I actually wasn't expecting any positive feedback on this one given my voice is not the best around. Glad to hear that it is appealing to you.
