This song is one of the reasons I don't like the audio portal on this site. The only reason I found this track is because you did a review on one of my own tracks. Some idiots on this site just like to randomly vote 0 on other people's music, and when a song gets a score of <4.00, it's almost impossible for others to discover it. If you made every part of this track by yourself, you are really talented, and have the potential to become a good musician. Like dejota said, the track needs more more structure. Also, try to think outside the box when it comes to beats, percussion and melodies. You don't have to use them like everyone else does. Try to be creative and you'll be fine. Sorry if you don't really get what I'm trying to say, I just hear some raw talent that I really would like to see being polished up. Keep it up!
The song starts very nice with that lovely bassline. The first synth you used doesn't do anything for me, but it's a good warm up. Nice use of filters at 1:30, nice little 'hands in the air' moment. :-)
From that moment it sounds pretty good. Again you can hear it's made with fruityloops sounds & presets. But you made a good track with it. I like this one better than the last one. Keep it up!
that first synth, It doesn't do anything for me either, simple lil high pitched thing.. but a friend said i should leave it in because the tune sounded better with it in.
As for fruity loops presets, i find it funny that people think i use alot of presets just because they know I use FL and they say it about everything. The Instruments(kick snare hate) on this are Fruityloops instruments, and for such a simple trance tune i didn't see the point in altering their sound much.
FL 5 is out, 24bit sound baby, can finally put my soundcard to use.. I know Cubase and that were already 24bit, I did some work in them but i actually find FL alot more freeform.
Thinking about it... you know any good place to get some Trance and Drum and Bass style instruments, I know u can make any sound go anywhere with envilopes but it would be nice to have some processed drums for easy use, especially if its a simple bit of trance like this that doesn't take too much thinking.. its not like I am creating a psy trance piece.
Man thats another annoying thing about NG, can't upload any sy cos psy is at least 7 mins, well not that there is a minimum time for it, its just on average at least 7 mins long
Sounds too "fruityloops"
The bassline at the beginning is good and sounds well with the kick&snare. Too bad you used the standard fruity kick(and snare). The synth that comes in sounds nice but nothing special. The synth around 1:10 sounds cool though. After that your track evolves good, but the sounds you used were just not very good. Your clap should have had more variety too you know. But other than this it sounds decent, the different melodies sound cool, it's just the sounds that you used...
But hey, it's a catchy song with crappy sounds, so I spot some talent here. :-)
Yeah well once again its just a simple trance tune doesn't need much more than basic FL drums hihats snare and claps, i think thats all i used of FL, the rest was either something I made on the 3xosc or a synth i edited to get the sound i wanted. Cheers for the review, maybe i will redo the couple of trance yunes you review if you think they are worth making better?
Hey man, this is a very nice production. The percussion is clear and that's a very important thing. I also think it's really original, there's a story behind it and it has more depth then most tracks on NG. The only thing I didn't really like was the beginning, the 'synth' is way too loud and it's not clear. Apart from that I think this is great stuff. It's gets better the more you listen to it!
Overall: Needs a little bit of work, but it really has potential!
