Why does not many people like to review this song? That's easy. Majority like electronic music here. A refreshing song to here. This is not a new beat. Unoriginal. Vocals off tune at some points. New lyrics yes. The only new thing here. I don't care though. Nice to listen to something unoriginal but not electronic.
Someone that is bang on in his review. devasionrecords review is so true. On ng this may be one of the top songs. Leaving NG land, this song would be at the bottom. Same goes for your gravity song. Not being mean. Just stating the facts. No originality in this song or the gravity one.. Your lead instrument in the quiet parts sound so random and not well constructed. I like the pad sounds. I don't vote so it is not me lowering your score!
Yeah, I know. When I f.eks like listen to "nitrous oxide", "gouriella" and "flutlich", I'm like, wow! My songs can't even be compared to the pro songs, but somewhere I'll need to start, right?:P
I think there is something unknown here.
I don't think you know what original means from your response to g4ebguyGT review.
Not trying to be mean. I'm just saying. Not my type of music but it was decent. I don't vote so your score won't drop okay?
Original.. as in, it's not a remix or a remake of anything. There's a very limited number of chord progressions, so some are obviously going to get used multiple times.
Few mistakes here and there. Eg some parts I think you only wanted to hit one note but accidently hit two. Some mic static here and there. Not a very original song. I think I heard a bunch of songs similar to this with maybe a few notes different. 8/10 . I agree with the others. Song is peaceful.
Good lyrics. Your voice is a bit loud though. Don't like the screams. :(
Umm, the beat is very similar to the song used in "Redbull BC ONCE" 2005 break dancing song. Are you sure cornandbeans made the beat? Its a nice beat uh not original. The lyrics are original. Have not played castle crashers. Is it out yet?
its out for the xbox 360 and one of the creators of it is Tom Fulp. The guy who owns newgrounds.
This is okay. Is this a remix? The patterns seem so basic. C Ab Eb Db pattern (tranpose if I said in wrong key) Even the lead is copying the bass! It is happy. Don't like how this seems like a bunch of old songs already on NG mixed together just with different instruments. Sorry dude. 8/10 if you were going for some mix of a bunch of artist songs. 7/10 for if you were trying to make something new. I'll assume the former.
Note: I don't vote so your score does not change.
Experimental of what?
It is easy to make a song that is completely random and out of play. I guess your right in putting this in miscellaneous, but I would never listen to this kind of music. However, it could work in some messed up resident evil scene. The thing I find ordered is maybe your panning. Maybe you intentially put clip distortion on one of the instruments? There is one benefit with making this song. You now have a lot of fx to chose from since the more screwed up the fx the better it sounds. Maybe implement some of these sounds in your next song that is much more organized, much less dissonant, and nice beat. At least you had fun making this. 10/10 review? Sorry dude, Not on this one. 4/10 review.
Experimental of what? Experimenting with my new plugin and various effects. Yes all the effects were intentional (well, over about 95%). Good to get review that is both critical and helpful sorry to say unlike these gentlemen (who were nevertheless encouraging). This wasn't completely random-- I'm reasonably sure I had some kind of plan but I don't remember...
...Anyway thanks for the advice, I'll be sure to implement some of this type of effects in the future in a way "that is much more organized, much less dissonant, and nice beat."
The most rewarding thing about making this was watching peoples' faces when I played it to them, that was fun. Anyway thanks.
You must be new here or something
Seriously the zero bombers don't even listen to your song. Simply zero and leaves your page. For some odd reason since so many complain about 0 bombers....has no one thought that maybe the administrators or this A-bot thing actually zero a lot of the songs to prevent the AP from being swarmed by 5/5 songs? Maybe??? I'm probably wrong but you never know.
This song has a nice mood to it. Very adventurous. But your bass beat sounds like something that comes from sega genesis. Very video game-ish therefore I'm not digging the seriousness put in this piece. That piano is very nice though. You put just the right amount of delay to make it sound all pretty. I was expecting a more sooner buildup. The song kinda drags out and the video game lead sound at 2:30 takes away the experience quickly. Again too video game like. If the mac contest wasn't about just 8 bit sounds you might have done well in it. The reason why some people don't like trance is because it is repetitive and yours definately is repetitive. So I'll stop my review there. You made a soothing song to listen to and would be nice if played in a video game space theme. However, with no video for me to watch when listening to this song, I'm bored. That won't have much effect on your score. Good job...8/10. See yah.
Might as well review what you think is your best
electronic song that is...
I think you have way too much distortion....no you do have too much. It's either that or your cutoff dial is screaming to the max. The intro was just too messy. I did notice the panning of the percussion so that I commend you on. Okay so you got the kick the nice bass, but fix those higher frequency instruments.
At 2:23 let the randomness come in. Prior to that point the flow of the song was decent, but this part just sounds like you mashed the key as fast as you can randomly. I never did like gabber.
Meh, everything just seems not well composed. I understand the numerous melodies going which increases the difficulty in making the song, but you have to make the melodies match well together. This looks like an old song of yours so you probably fixed up on your mistakes. Your ambient stuff sounds more ordered. I'll have to hear your recent electronic stuff to see what you still need to improve on. No hard feelings on the score I hope. See yah.
I did the massive screaming distortion on purpose cause I was like "YEAH!" And that fast section a similar reason (mashed the key as fast as I could huh? Wanna bet!?:). I know I should probably try for more order and less crazy shit to relate to the listener a bit better. I'm just very experimental is all. I also have an electronic piece under construction right now too but judging from this review you'll HATE it-- it could not possibly be breaking any more rules. Hope to see you later.
PS. No, and no hard feelings on the score either. Thanks for the review.
Hey dude, I've kept up to date with your stuff
I think your stuff is good. Only one problem. It is lacking originality. Maybe this is just your stuff but all your songs tend to use the same oscillator rhythm. If your going to use your oscillator try to go more in depth with it instead of the exact same settings all the time. You love your delay and though I like delay too, seriously you need to come up with something more unique. Are you able to make it so that the delay will actually go all twisted rather than the generic bouncing fade out? Try a vector envelope and you will be able to solve this problem. Anyway, you sure like space tunes. I don't mind. Oh and for your filter bank try something different. Instead of the simple rising feel frequencies try and make some crazy distorted filter. The easiest way that I know of is to make your reverb really crazy modulated to overpower the standard filter rise. I know that my filter bank has the ability to actually add another instrument that rises rather than the main instrument doing the filter changes. Eg. A bouncing ball that increases in frequency while the main instrument remains the same frequency. I am sure your filter bank can do that too. Make the LFO shift intensity as minimal as possible but have the LFO fade intensity high for some unique rising effects. Also time them in different sequences. Eg LFO shift intensity loops every 8 measures and the LFO fade intensity loops every 4 measures or if your more crazy try odd numbers counteracting the even numbers of looping.
Nice piano so I give you that. Oh and did you ever try to transpose your drum loops down or up a octave. You will be very pleased with the results. (Well for most of them) Oh and for your fx instead of the ol air sound, again use that vector envelope. Also put a good amp modification so the fx may actually rise and fall in volume really quick. All these little tweaks can make your songs all sound fresh again. Give it a try. See yah.
