high in the sky
the part at 1:40 really sells this, and just a bit later with the instruments filling some necessary space, it all comes together quite nicely. if i were to come up with a complaint of any kind, i'd say the first bit is a little thinner than i'd prefer, but that's more the style of percussion (and the bass-like instrument might be a little quiet in the distorted resonance part), but i didn't write this - you did. and i can respect that. great work and awesome job. the whole thing really works well.
take it from here...
...and you'll have something pretty sweet in the making. 6, because there's potential, but there's not a whole lot to go on, yet (i don't trust "drafts" to do well if people aren't willing to foresee anything). what an obscure source idea. be sure to delete/obliterate this version when/if you make a completed one. the scores would be adverse.
maybe TOO thick. and i understand your thoughts. it's like "i don't really LOVE it, but it's not that BAD, but i don't really care if it's on there, but it IS already on the internet..."
still, it doesn't suck. the sounds and everything are great, but they're harsh altogether. maybe give some things some separation and it'd be awesome enough to admire graciously.
Thanks, for the compliments and the criticism.
I've learned more recently to watch my volume and peak meters, so i'll try and master or just adjust volume and frequency levels until i've got a better sound happening.
that's what it is.
it's also very quiet. needs oomph. major oomph. pad it out a few minutes more, turn up the recording. fill out the sound and dare i say it, find a sample of that intro, if only for the sake of having it. maybe you should go ahead and get this one offa here and post it back after all that and try to get a better start for this song/snippet.
at no point does this try to do more than it needs. just nice and easy construction...
easy to get lost in, even with the very yamaha synth part midway. fantastic, without grating the listener. nice.
this a pretty nice beat
all i could say against it is the distortion nearing the end from all the synths is a little buzzy in the high ranges, but it doesn't kill the track.
maybe a little messing with the levels on things, and this'd be silky smooth.
hmm, pretty sure i used no distortion in here (other then some slight bitcrushing on the kick), but yeah that gated synth is pretty buzzy. i'm no mixer. Thanks for the review!
this is pretty phenomenal
it might be just me, but it's a little loud...
but, that aside, the layering and the instrumentation are amazing. everything in is crisp and clean without too much "overmix" clutter. being able to play the instruments also allows you to improvise and then later say you "wrote it", lol.
from the simple beat to the indulgent guitar work, this is great. maybe some more "oomph" behind the drum clips, maybe a new track altogether with more thorough (a.k.a. real) playback. if i'm mistaken about how you did them, correct me, but they sound like a single recording, unaltered as it passes through.
i think this should be tossed into the general rock category though. i know that category sucks for garnering attention, but it fits there stylistically.
even with criticism, this is great.
didn't even see this...
maybe you should off the 1/2 one now, lol. didn't even see this til just after the other one.
okay. i like how you filled out some of the empty space, much deeper now. i still think it could use some decoration, but this is your song, not mine.
if you have problems coming up with a groove, you could simply throw out sixteenth notes and notch a few off at random til you've thinned the herd a little.
or: on beat, on beat, off beat, on again. any kind of syncopation as a core follows something like that. woot!
I see what you mean by switching it up with the sixteenth notes.
I don't mind the Constructive C man, I need it!!
Thanks for reviewing!
while that's not unusual for a harpsichord, the harpsichord is awfully fake sounding. even with a different instrument taking it's place (as a BS harpsichord), you might get much better tonal quality without sacrificing the rhythms.
who the hell voted 0?
i liked this. i think it's a tad drab, but it's also extremely clean and doesn't harshen up as it goes. nice.
also, just... short.
