(I removed my last "Enlightened Soul" Due to...well It sucked. And instead give you this version which is much better)

I created this song with "Mario Paint Composer 2.0" using the DJ-Dance soundfont. It is the first MPC creation I actually put effort into. Hopefully I will get better with the program and provide better songs, Until then, Enjoy!

Good day. I heard you wanted a review.

DA GOOD:
-Fairly good sounds, considering this is with a sound font.
-Also considering this is with Mario Paint Composer, holy crap man. You need to get a better system for making music, seems like you could do some really good things.

DA NOT-SO-GOOD:
-Ok, first of all - you might want to give this a bit more of a consistent tune. As it is, the composition is a tad random and monotonous. There are a lot of backgrounds that seem rather copy/pasted, and there's no particular "tune" that sticks out. If you listen to some higher-quality songs from artists (even pop music would do), there is always some kind of 'chorus' or general tune that they keep to. In classical format, there are generally two or three tunes. You also may want to try changing the chords every once in a while too.
-Try using some more natural changing of volumes, as well as bringing out of the less-easily-heard percussion. In MPC, I don't believe you can really "mix", so I can't talk much about that, but... at the very least, like TroisNyxEtienne said... volume control.

Keep working at it! Even though this isn't that good of a song, I do see potential - try looking up Anvil Studio or MadTracker. They're free DAWs that I've heard are quite good - though I have not used them myself.

The bass in this song is... Strange... Because it seems like it has a mind of its own, and often that can be distracting to the listener because they have no clue whether to follow the main melody (which should often be the case) or the bass (which is the foundation of the song, but rarely should ever take lead) so it creates a sound that's disjunct; your mind is trying to follow one melody while trying to comprehend the other as well. I think I might be long-winded in what I'm trying to say, but by now, I think it should be clear what I'm explaining.

Otherwise, gl with this and future songs you should decide to do with MPC...

Yes, I was worried someone would notice that. Mario paint composer only gives you 5 notes (of any instrument) per line so I had to relocate the bass away from its original place and melody once I filled in the fifth note with something else. Its confusing... Hence why I will no longer be using MPC (or atleast until they make it more flexible).

Sounds pretty decent, although it feels like its missing some stuff. I can't put my finger on it though.

Thanks for the review?

Hello, fellow Mario Painter. :D
A few things to note:

1) Volume control. You've got the green bars below to regulate the volume; try making use of them. I understand that this is your first song, and like you, I did not make use of the volume control when I made my first Mario Paint piece. But you'd do well to remember that. ^_- It especially shows in percussions when the drums are all the same volume and don't sound natural...

2) Chord variation. The piece sounds a little bland when the same chords are repeated all the way through. Try a little more variation! This, if not anything else, is the aspect that gashes the listening experience for me.

3) Buildup. You built up the piece well with a bit more instrument layering in each section. Also, the intro was quite good.

Congrats on your first song -- build up on what's good, knock out the kinks and you'll be well on your way to making better pieces!
