So, I thought I'd make a nice song for the holidays. Not halloween, but for X-Mas. It's a nice, upbeat Winter/X-Mas song that I thought turned out pretty good. I was mainly inspired by my friend, ClimbLadders, whose on NG, & some of The Boondocks songs like the theme song, end song, and some of those transitional songs to the next scene. I feel that if you put on some headphones & experience the song, you'll get a good vibe out of it. I also used a new, "free" VST which was Hypersonic 2. I feel pretty lame that I didn't get SampleTank or Halion Sonic, but SampleTank would take up too much space since I haven't got my new external hard drive yet and well, I didn't know about Halion Sound, lolz. So pleez rate, review, download, & enjoy!!! :D

Awesome!

Makes me think of the Boondocks for some reason, haha!
The intro is nice, it grabs my attention right away. The sample used is nice too it helps it. It does have that cheery feel to it with the bells and pikes. I really like it =]

I guess the reason it reminds me of the Boondocks is the bass that goes, "Bum Ba-bum, Ba-bum, Ba-bum" That's a nice little intro effect.
The intro is so full with sounds and instruments that at 0:30-1:05 it feels empty compared to it, I understand that a break. If indeed it is a short break, that would be a great opportunity to get creative with some light percussion's =]

Overall I really love the power behind this track. Very inspiring!
Happy and upbeat, the mastering is great, the samples are new and fresh, and the outro is so simple and quiet i love it!
Great track man!
5/5

Haa thanx man. For a sec I got scared cuz I was like OMG the score went down, he must have some kinda super critique, but I noticed it had 7 votes earlier and yours mustve raised it up and some lame 0 bomber drop the bomb on it. I'm glad you liked the intro, I tried with somethin' simple, but immediate. Yeah, that that Bum Ba-bum part is why I thought of it too. I was like "I'll just use that" lolz. The reason it probably feels empty is because for the intro, I had an instrument I never used again, which was the Tremelo strings, so good observation there. Agreed, I probably could've done somethin' more with the drums. Upbeat is what I was goin' for too :D I worked hard on the mastering, mainly for the kick cuz it was kinda hard, glad you liked my instrumentation, and yes, a simple outro is what I mainly tried. Thanx for the review man!!!

This is one happy storm.

I can imagine kids going out kids going out to play because there is no school for a couple of days. It has a super winter feel to it!

This is awesome. Where to start? It's a cool hip-hop winter theme that also sounds happy. It sounds like a classical also. I also like how this starts! Chords are awesome too. This is something I need to work on lol.

The pizzicato is a a nice touch. Fits in with everything else.

I don't have a favorite part of this song...It's all good!

Keep it up.

(ClimbLadders) 5/5

Now that you mentioned it, I thought of that and that at the end, a boy goes inside, sitting next to the fireplace with his grandpa drinking hot coco :) Yeah, like I know you can put orchestral into hip hop, but this usually when you do, it doesn't turn out this happy, which is whats different about this song that I like. Haa, usually I try to get a rhythm in mind then play it on one layer and get the tempo right, then I just copy the one layer and paste it, but put it on a lower octave and put the velocity down so that it sounds nice and realistic. I'm glad you noticed the pizz, it's a small I added since I notticed some of the gaps were plain. Thanx for the review!!!
