I don't really know what to say about it. I just got baked and started fucking around in reason/ record until this came out of me. Sounds good, man.

I wish I could have compressed the kick more tho, anyone have tips? :/

Great!

Amazing! Great loop!

The bass sound could be toned down a little volume wise then get rid of every frequency below 30 or 40 hz on the master mix and the mix will be much clearer.

Other than that I love the percussion and the free flowing feel! great stuff!

Greetings from 420chan

You could have compressed the kick more. You do realize you can edit tracks on here even after you've already posted them I hope?

No offense intended, but I can tell you're a bit new at making music. Listen to your other tracks, I can tell you're working at it and have a steady line of improvement, which is great. All it takes is a little practicing.

BUT ON TO THE SONG. Might've just been me, but I wasn't too huge on the percussion. It was well arranged, but I didn't like the samples you chose.

The melody is really chill, and I like the 2 main synths you had going. The song has a cool vibe to it. It's a short loop, so there's not too much else for me to really praise, so I apologize if this review sounds overly negative because don't get me wrong I like this loop/your music.

That being said, here's what you can improve. You had some cool sounds going on in the background, but they were a little muddy and inaudible. My advice would be add some more effects to the song just to make the music more interesting, like a dropping effect would've fit really well in the beginning. Another thing is in an ambient loop like this, apparent reverb is important. Some reverb on those hats would've sounded really good I think. And one crucial aspect this song is missing: a bass! The song sounded a bit empty without any kind of guiding bassline. It's equally as important as percussion.

Again, sorry if I seem too critical here. I realize this song was something you just made for fun, but maybe you'll find something useful from this review to improve your production skills.

peace man, keep it up

Wow, thanks for the in- depth review. No worries about sounding too critical, I welcome constructive criticism, and yours was very helpful. I realize that most of my stuff on here is not that great, its very old, and I'de like to think ive improved alot since those days. I just posted this today as a means of showcasing it on sites like 420chan :P

About the percussion, thanks for the well arranged comment, I've been practicing just that. But Ive just set up my new "studio" and right now am limited to the reason factory sound bank... which is known for its crappy drum samples.

As for the bass, I did put a really deep sub bass in there, make sure u crank the bass on your speakers or whatever lol. Thanks again for the comment
