Dedicated to my friend Faith.

People might think the title is cheesy or lame, but who cares. It's more about the song isn't it?

The song's kinda like trance at the start and dance at some parts.... If you notice anything repeated from my previous songs, that was done intentionally. The bass at the start is also unoriginal intentionally.

Tried to make a song with almost entirely Refx Nexus... and i think it's pretty good? Just a lot of clipping and distortion while making it. 72 patterns.... and my second longest song. Woot?

Enjoy ;P

I'm listening as I write and grading HARD, so watch out...

Bad stuff:

Personally, I think this should have been about 7 bpm faster. Second You need to learn how to write a bass and GET A NEW BASS INSTRUMENT! I can not stress this enough! Third, your high pass filter sweep at 1:27 doesn't sound like it peaks all the way. Fourth, your transition at 1:43 is too abrupt. It sounds like you got a little lazy with you transitions because the same thing happened at 2:11. The solos in the middle need a hard hitting bass. The guitar solo sounds like you added a phaser or increased the over sampling too much, which kind of ruins the effect of Inferno. Lazy transition again at 5:08. Your kick sounds a bit cheap and so do the strings. You should've added reverb to the strings. There's TOO MUCH reverb on your sweep. I really feel this is missing something that would've made this a lot better... Probably a gate or PAD going a long with the bass and a faster tempo. One more thing, this should be under trance regardless of the sixteenth notes and guitar.

Good stuff:

Your bass and melody are VERY original, so good job on that! The piano fits in nicely. The high pass filter sweeps were a good idea. I love the gated vocal instrument at 2:53. I really liked you guitar solos! I also really like your key change! I also really wish I could stop typing like this! XD I'm suprised you ended with somewhat of a fade out, because you said that "fade outs are for lazy people," but whatever, i liked it. I was really surprised by the length. Even though t's 7 minutes, It keeps me interested the whole time!

Overall, it's an awesome song. It's probably your best yet, and If you change what I suggest it will be your best EVER! NICE WORK.

9/10 5/5 (Because I'm nice) =)

mmhmm.... i see. lol.

yeah i.. kinda agree with you on the bpm? i tested it out and it sounded pretty good... asides from the clipping and distortion lol. hmm.... i'll probably learn some way to write a correct bass on YouTube... or experimenting. The high pass filters i left them intentionally not peaking all the way so it'd make people listen a little harder to hear the notes.... idk if anyone would bother to do that lol. Yeah... those were new basses too... XP... two basses i mean. I agree on the transition at 1:43. Maybe i could have done a fadeout of the piano with the Pad fading back in. Do you mean the transition at 2:11 was lazy cause there's no filter sweep? o.o Hmm... i'll try adding bass next time with solos. i thought the drums did a nice job of supporting the solos though. Yeah i used Hardcore for it to get a different effect, though i kinda see what you mean by a ruined effect of inferno. 5:08 was a pretty good transition in my opinion... the strings were building up and the Inferno had just finished a high melody over it and then it had a sustained note... do you mean the filter sweep? lol yeah i know the strings were cheap. The kick sounded okay... though now that you mention it i realize it sounds very similar to the basic kick given in the FL Studio templates. Didn't think of adding reverb to those strings.... they already had too much sustained-ness or whatever in the decay or release so i had to cut that part down so you'd actually be able to hear notes. The reverb's been the same on the sweep since ThunderFury... it was probably just too loud at that part so it left itself too exposed. Lol i couldn't add a Pad in again with all of the instruments and CPU usage and the Gate i used already used 80 CPU usage with the drums. Maybe a Sytrus gate would work. Yeah i just changed it to trance.

Er.. on the bass part being original what do you mean?.... since earlier you said i need to learn how to write a bass so.... seems kinda contradicting to me but i'll say thanks for now. Mmm woot on my melody's being original? xD. lol to save space, i'll just say: Thanks x 9 or x 10. Lol yes you should stop typing like that because it's making me laugh xD. Mm... yeah it's "somewhat of a fade out"..... combining your idea with a little solo and some other things for that. Lol by lazy people i also include myself cause as you can see... those transitions were pretty lazy apparently. xD. lol thanks on the 7 minutes part. keeps me interested the whole time too ;P

Thanks and thanks. I'm testing out some of the things you said in FL and it sounds pretty good...
