so a few hours ago, my close freind Lithirion posted an interesting techno song titled "Nexus Midnight". within an hour of hearing it, i strated creating a song based around a sample of the first 2 bars of his loop. and this song is technically FL core, becsue neither him or I used anything that didn't come with the FL 9 download.

here's the original. by my man Lithirion. show him some love! /audio/listen/360763

144 bpm. 11 layers. 6 instruments. 9 patterns.

this is a slightly lower quality copy then my usual. you can find the full quality here. 9e5/

i dunno what to even say anymore. peace. ~electrolyte blue (DM)

It's Alright...

...but isn't anything all that mind altering. It's pretty straight forward and standard techno for the most part. Which isn't a bad thing really, it's just not really a great thing either. :-P

I think some of the samples used are a bit out of place. In particular the orchestral hits you used seem like they do not belong at all. I'm not sure what you were going for with them, but I would replace them with some sort of stabby synth. Because right now they really just do not fit the overall mix in my opinion.

I think the percussion is a bit on the generic side as well. You need to incorporate more loops and rhythms, as well as some more unique glitch effects. I feel like I hear a glitch here and there in the main percussion loop, but I'm not sure. I would turn this more into an IDM type song by glitching up the percussion and layering them a lot more.

Lastly, the overuse og gated synths in this is a bit much. At first it's an alright mix, but about halfway through I started to get annoyed with the gated synths. They are just too much for my taste.

Now don't get me wrong, the song isn't bad. You have a decent mix going on with some interesting synths and melody lines. And the main melody line is looping a whole lot, but somehow stays somewhat fresh throughout the entire song.

3/5 and 7/10 overall. It's good, but not really great. I'd put a lot more work into the percussion and synth lines if it were me.
