cool story bro...
Seriously that was quite entertaining. Now as for the song, very nice and atmospheric. The mood created by the piano definitely gave the song a more soothing feel even with the driving, yet spastic beat. Very nice work.
Not bad at all.
It feels a bit on the empty side though. You should try balancing and EQ'ing the instruments to keep them from overshadowing each other. For example, the drums could be a bit softer and the melody and bass brought out. also don't be afraid to use some more chords to keep it from being too redundant. But I did like the ambient tones you used. I also admire the fact you play the keyboard parts yourself. I still haven't figured how to get that to work smoothly on my computer.
Thanks! This isn't the quite finished version, I'm going to change some of the drum samples. For example, the bass drum isn't the final drum I want. I'll add some chords too when I figure out which chords to use. XD
I'll try to balance the instruments more. :D
To record, I use a Line 6 UX2 recording device and Ableton, I had no problems at all with lag or anything. You should try it.
I was expecting to get punched in the face with a vicious kick and buzzing squelching bass after that wind up, but ended getting slapped. It needs to be a bit meaner. The bassline is really good however. It's the kick, snare, and general lack of anything else going on from 1:22 on. I'm no dubstep expert, but I'd like to hear a little more in this track. Great start, can't wait to hear the rest.
Thanks dude, I'm gonna work on that now :)
Lots of energy, lots of excitement, good amount of variation, melodies were on point, great mastering; I mean what else should one expect from you? Awesome track dude.
You're too kind. :3
The music and lyrics were very generic, and the singing was just not good. I will give you props for playing your guitar parts though. Those sounded fine to me. I really hate giving harsh reviews, but honesty is my policy. I'm not saying I could sing or write much better, which is why I stick to what I'm good at. But, I also believe you only get better with time and practice, so with that said, keep it up.
thanks i guses... i thought the music was fairly well composed, and the lyrics i spent a long time on but, if they didn't hit it for you i guess thats how it goes sometimes, the guitar is what i play here, so thats fine, my singing here was terrible, i tried to hit notes i can't. through the whole thing, so the vocals comments didn't even insult me, i jus tneed to practice as i'll get better, as you said. I appreciate your honesty, and i also appreciate that you didn't feel the need to be a dick about it.
I enjoy hearing music that is actually played by the artist on Newgrounds. The beginning was a bit boring, but it got interesting about half-way through. You play well.
I like the style. It's very unique from the typical trance stuff here on NG. Very chill, but energetic. I like the use of the effects, though, there are moments where they are just a bit on the loud side. Minor gripes aside, really good track here.
Kinda loud on the other parts, huh? My friend commented the same. I'm going to balance better next time.
Very video game-like in a retro kind of way. Good stuff.
It sounds familiar. I don't know what it reminds me of though. Anyway, from a technical side, it's a bit too loud. Musically, it's very melancholy, but somehow hopeful. It sounds nice. Keep on writing, it'll only get better.
This one sounds pretty nice. I think it just needs more punch to it. It really feels like it just barely misses the mark there, but that's just my stylistic opinion. Sounds great though.
imma take a look at that again and add a slight difference to it...
