My first attempt at using Logic Pro. No time like the present for experimentation, eh?

- NGADM Round 1 Review -

Definitely a chill track, and very good production, especially for your first attempt using a new DAW.

The calmness make for a good atmosphere; the relative emptiness in the first half helps to establish this. Your bass begins to get very repetitive after a while, however, and the entire song lacks substantial melodic content. You've got some cool parts here and there, especially at 1:45. That was really good, and sounded like it was going to change direction — but then it was gone! That sounded like a good place to pick up, after such a dragged-out intro, but it ended up not going anywhere, and just...ending.

This piece sounds like it's supposed to be much longer than it ended up being, and holds much more potential than what's currently displayed here. Otherwise, this sounds like a very good foundation that could be so much more.

Score: 7.5

I agree entirely. Time limits combined with procrastination make for a sucky time for all involved.

This is an NGADM Round 1 review.

A much more relaxing listen than your audition! Might be due to the surprisingly slow tempo for a song of this genre. Your sounds are so smooth, the production is super clean, and the way you set up the track makes it highly suitable for chill background music. While I wasn't a fan of the generic rhythm you used for the plucks, you've got some nice composition (even if there's a lack of it). I also quite like how you made the track progress; it's certainly not as progressive as, say, XsakuX's submission, but it's still a very suitable progression that was enjoyable to listen to, not too long for it to sound stretched and not too short for it to sound incomplete. Cool intro, ending and transitions too!

It's a real shame that you didn't have more time to work on this, because even if you didn't specify it yourself, it's really apparent. There isn't the kind of ambition and thoughtfulness I heard in your audition (even though I admittedly find this track to be superior atmosphere-wise). There's a significant lack of melodic content content as I mentioned above. You've basically got drums, some atmospheric elements, a pad and a saw/square synth pluck that you filter occasionally throughout the track. These are all background elements, and the only time something upfront and melodic comes in, it's gone by 1:47. I love your drum glitching/bitcrushing but I wish I heard more of it since tracks like this often rely more on its sounds and production value than it does on composition to deliver an enjoyable listening experience, and hence it's details like that which will help your track sound more interesting (along with throwing in some more melodic content as I mentioned).

Anyway, you've got a pretty short track here, which does not do justice to your production skills. A very nice listen though; keep it up.

Score: 7/10

Good stuff man. Mixing is still perfect, everything sounds great, kind of amazing for a first song in a DAW. I was sad to hear that you were rushed, because that little flair at 1:45 shows you could do a lot with more time.

Yes, love Logic Pro. It's what I use too. This is definitely not bad for your first time. I'd say it probably gets a little repetitive around the minute line, and my mind keeps waiting for a melody. THEN that little riff at 1:47. I wanted that to continue, man! :P
Anyhow. Good stuff. :)
