A work in progress... please let me know what you think needs to be changed (added/taken away), so I can polish this piece and place it in my finished work and move on with my next production! There's still quite a bit I want to do with this track, but I need more ideas from other listeners. Thanks in advance! Hope you enjoy thus far!

****UPDATE****

Ok, so I've made a few changes...

1. Increased the attack and release of the choir sample
2. Added a short build-up right before it kicks
3. Altered notes on 2nd measures of main lead
4. Added an extra poly-synth in arpeggio section

I agree with evil dog.. the last little short ha before the end ha is just.. eh...

and the techno is.. a bit awkward.. come on dreamscaper you were the god of ambiant on this site.. don't tell me you've lost your touch ;)

I'd fix the choir and rework the percussion imo. Also that arp feels a bit presetty hehehe :P

take one of those songs we worked on together and finish it btw.. I had to format my computer a while back and lost them both.

-shawn-


Dreamscaper responds:

Yeah, I will need to make the choir sample more of longer pad-like chord instead of using too much similarity with the actual pad I used throughout most of this track. This is still far from finished, so the Techno you're referring to might not stay in the final production because I what I have now, I just quickly put together something to compliment the main melody/lead. And, I don't remember if I've told you this before, but I honestly, hate making the beat/rhythm of most Electronic music I produce because of how tedious I find matching up other original elements in the track I originally love that I may have to alter due to synchronization. Small little fact about me you may or may not have known.

It has seriously been almost two years since I last produced a full composition. Ever since my daughter was born, my free time has been greatly diminished. So, after not using Reason since then and starting back learning the new Reason 6.5 from using Reason 4.0, I was pretty impressed I could produce something of this calibre!

I will definitely fix the choir, percussion and loosen the arp a bit, and also add in some sound fx for a deeper atmosphere. I'll see about contacting you to give you that song we were working on together again. I'd love to finally work together on something we love! Nice to hear from you again, Shawn! Thanks for the review, buddy!

I really like the idea of everything, but I agree with Evil-Dog. The choir sounds pretty odd with those attack and release times. I also think that the beat comes in a little bit too suddenly. Some kind of quiet uplifting sweep that comes in a few bars before the drums might help that out a little bit. All in all, this could certainly become a really good tune. c:


Dreamscaper responds:

Agreed! I was very hesitant on releasing this track just yet because I knew that something just did not sound right about it, but I just got to that point when I honestly could not put my finger on it after listening to this piece over and over again for sound tests. So, I'm glad I submitted this so soon, so I could get all of your POVs, but I guess I'll have to be content with everyone hearing how rough it sounds currently. I'll definitely take Evil-Dog's and your advice about increasing the attack and release on the choir sample; it does sound pretty choppy and forced. Also, great idea about a small build-up right before the kick starts to give the listener a smoother expectation. Thank you so much for your review, I-Inanimate!

The attack and release of the choir is a bit wack, sounds a bit fake because of that.
And the techno beat coming in, I'm not a big fan of haha
Not my cup of tea at all :D


Dreamscaper responds:

Thanks for your honest review, Marco! Maybe I'll pour you a different cup you may like in the near future. :D
