Feel good track
When the lead goes away and that sound with the bassline comes in id say it sounds alot like deadmau5 style house to me, but for the most part its a trancey track. Definitely a dreamy feel to it too, a more definite drop later in the song would be nice if you ever make this song longer. The filtered part at 1:18 or so makes that lead sound really cool, just alot of subtle nice sounds going on but I think what will make this perfect is a more powerful moment in the song.
This track creates a very specific mood which is always good in classical music. Due to my personal preference id prefer a longer song with a couple more paraddidles here and there with some plucked instruments or violins, but that wont factor into the score. The drums give a nice backbone and are toned down when it sounds right, transitions are damn near perfect and all the long sounds add a very epic feel and fill sonic space so this deserves a 10.
Digging the proggresive composition
The intro was a bit dry as it went on past the 1 minute mark but that can be solved with bringing that background filtered lead to the foreground maybe, but thats just a suggestion. I really like the pad that came in after the intro, gave a very euphoric feeling as the bass became more aggressive and distorted. As the piece goes on i feel as if the bass line should be more varied note wise, as the rhythm is the driving force of all house music. The vocals i think are a bit too high in the mix and the drums should be louder but the overall feel of the piece is top notch, groovin rhythm and easy going intensity.
Intro is a bit offputting
The main synth lead is pretty cool sounding but it dosent fit as well with the bass as id like but that's just my opinion. Alot of the alien like spacey sounds are a nice touch, overall i think it should be longer and the their should be more variation in the drums but the bass and drum sounds are very very good i must say. Hard snare really makes a strong back beat, but i would raise the volume of the hi hats and add some occasional bell ride in there if it sounds good. Great work
a wall of sound
I really like the breakdown at around 1:20, very strong effects and subtle melodic changes make it sound quite epic, after the breakdown i would change that really high synth to something less cheerful but thats just the feel i get from the other instruments, that they are a bit darker and harder while still staying subtle and balanced. The drums are well done id say, and i think some spacey atmospheric sounds could do well in the outro if you choose to add to the song : )
The whole time I listened to this I was staring at the budding tree in my backyard flowing in the wind, I love how the vocals are low in the mix when they come in. All the instruments are used to their fullest potential and the drums give a good backbone while not being boring, especially with that flanging hard crash. Towards the end of the track im getting a very euphoric feeling, but overall theres so much great sounds that glitch and morph that its hard to totally criticize this track with just a couple listens. Great work :)
Great to hear from you and I am really glad you enjoyed this track. Last summer when I was working on this track I spent a great while researching and investing time in learning how to really master instruments and make them shine clearly to there fullest potential.
I wrote the original track of this 4 years ago. in fact its on my other newgrounds account. And since then I just loved the landscape and depth of feeling it draws from the piano and drums. and from that It made me feel that this track really needed to be rebuilt.
This is the first track of mine to actually be released with my own voice in it. and wanted it to be more of an instrument than steal the show over the other sounds.
Thanx for the review it means a lot.
Sounds need some work
Your glitches and drums really stand out in a good way in this remix, but that synth that came in around :39 dosent work very well, id stick with fattening up that bassline you have going and bring that synth in an interlude or something. Your drum breaks sound great and fit well, make the omen sequence less repetitive and you'll have yourself a great remix id nod my head to. Still a great track, but anyway you mind giving me feedback on my new songs? : )
Wow thanks man. I'll surely make this better. And of course i'll give you a feedback :)
I love the jungle reminiscent drums,what would make this track is a less repetitive background sequence, switch up the notes or put a gross beat on it. The best part were the drums so fast fills and tom hits would also fit well. This track is great and alot more unique than most dnb, just needs some adjustments for freshness. Otherwise the mastering was well done except I would've appreciated a harder kick. check out my ambient songs and give me feedback? : )
Thanks man, always nice to hear some feedback, expect some in return ;)
The main problem with this track is how the sounds fit. The synth you used and the cymbal sample really didn't add to the chill out feel. Overall i would use filters or reverb to make certain sounds fit well. A geat job, just some parts ruined the vibe, ill still rate you a 5 though : )
Yeah, gotta sort that out next week (i'll have my audio equip back). Most likely it's not only the cymbal and synth, the whole sound probably sounds crappy. I was using a crappy laptop with FL6 and no audio gear (just some 5$ headphones lol) :P
Anyway, thank you for the review. I definitely gotta update this track.
Sounds need work
Ideas are very good but that fl studio sample you use dosent fit at all really, you know the one, at the beginning. The melodies are good note-wise but all your sounds just need to be fatter and pop more to the listener, try to make your own sounds out of the presets rather than using them by messing with those knobs. Soundgoodizer and reverb effects can be good addons too, but EQ is something you need to learn to do as well. A good try, just needs more time like all good music. Dont give up!
