WOW

Didn't see that coming! that was awesome! On another note, did you know that "Into the white" is also a song written by the Pixies? Probably a coincidance, but that's what made me click on this track in the first place!

Check out some of my stuff.

You make it too easy....

...to vote five on your stuff!

I'm by no means a techno fan, but I know good stuff when I hear it. This is a hell of a dense piece with cool key changes, great diversity, lots of energy, and a wealth of things to keep the listener engaged at every turn. Another very apt title -- definitely has an icy/wintry feeling to it. I hope people use it!

Ah, tinny bells.

I like the melody on them, but i would enjoy it a bit more if the bells weent so high ended.

The big sappy pad you bring in is amazing, your hitting all the notes i thought you wouldnt :P
I personally would have just done simple harmonics, but this works too.

When you bring in the low piano arpeggio, the song starts distorting.

Now, i know you said that it sounds better on headphones, but even though, you should use compressors to make sure that it doesnt distort no matter what you listen to it on.

When you bring in the drums, i don't hear a kick!
:(

I don't even hear a bassline!

It sounds so empty, but beautiful.
But it could be POWERFUL if you make a kick drum in there just pumpin out the bass!

So, my summary of this song:

Melody: Great work. If it wasnt so melodic and well written, i would have called it 'random sounding'. But, like i said, its well written. Good job there. But the instruments you used could ahve been a little better mastered, EQed and FXed.

Drums: FL presets... :(
Your drums sounded good, but id suggest to go on the internet and look for some free samples.
Anything is better than FL presets, man.
Trust me.
So, good durm programming.

Bass: Nice pads. But i'd like to hear a big bass blast every half beat.

Mastering: A bit of clippage, but only once or twice in the song. Just needs a little volume reduction.

Good work man. I am thoughroughly impressed.

johnfn responds:

Whoa! Thanks man, this is totally helpful!

Yeah, piano kinda screws it up sometimes... I guess it happened here too. :/

Compressors? Alright. I'll do that next song.

When you bring in the drums, i don't hear a kick!
:(

Yeah. I was trying to keep the drums very simple to point the attention back to the melody. It was tempting to make a cool drum loop but I decided not to because I thought the song could carry itself. In retrospect, it would probably have been better not to.

But it could be POWERFUL if you make a kick drum in there just pumpin out the bass!

Yeah. I think your right. Its just that at the time I didn't want to sacrafice the icy feel, and I wasn't sure how far I could go while retaining that. Turns out, probably quite a bit further. :P

Drums: FL presets... :(
Your drums sounded good, but id suggest to go on the internet and look for some free samples.
Anything is better than FL presets, man.
Trust me.
So, good durm programming.

Yeah, you're right about that. I'll go and do that! ^^

Bass: Nice pads. But i'd like to hear a big bass blast every half beat.

Yeah. I know exactly what you mean. But I really wanted to keep the cold feel, and it was very difficult to find a good strong bass with the icy feel. So in the end I just left it icy. Next song though, I wont have any restrictions on myself. So both drums and bass will be improved upon heavily!

Also, what is clippage? I'm guessing its the thing you get where it gets a little too loud and distorted, but I'ma go look it up...

Anyways, thanks so much for the review. I owe you one.

Awsome !!!

Hey sorry that you submitted this twice or whatever happened. Tho this is awesome ;) love it all, the bells were a little peaky on these headphones - but thats just a minor glitch here.

X5 From me, keep it up dude!

Give me a review if you have time :)

johnfn responds:

Yeah the double submission is really bothering me, especially right now because I think you voted 5 on the lower of the two, meaning they both are stuck around 3.57 and don't get any shots at the front techno page :/

But its the thought that counts, so thanks!

The bells messed up? Thats odd, nothing like that ever happened for me. Thing is that I'm dealing with awesome speakers that make my music sound better and I get really confused when people say its bad quality till I listen to it on my iPod or something. So its kinda annoying.

Thanks for the review anyways!

By the way, I've seen your audio a few times, but I think it would be unfair for me to review it since I'm just totally unused to the harder techno that you do and I don't like it as much. I will try to though, and then I'll see if I can't give you a review! :)
