This is just a quick cover of No No No by TheFatRat that I whipped up in a day or two, not wanting to start a real new project before I get some new software soon. This song is amazing, as are all of TheFatRat's music.

I hope you enjoy! <3
Awesome! It's so nice to hear this song without the vocals. I really wish someone would do a full orchestral remix of this great song. :)
Really groovy melodies & instrumentation just like the original! Enjoyed listening to it.
Had I not read your response I also would have said the drop/main chorus was weak. However, if it was indeed intentional, it's not an issue. So to that I say, to each their own.
Thanks MollusK! I'll have some new, better stuff soon...
First of all, I think with a bit of research you could have found some of the same samples as TheFatRat, but that's just me. For example, the vibraslap and snare. It's a cover though, so I won't take off anything for that. The cover was pretty spot on except the drop felt way too weak. Maybe if it had more hard-hitting drums and more bass it would have sounded more powerful. Otherwise I can't complain. It's a pretty solid cover. Keep up the good work!
Thank you! Not much to say in response, other than that the low-energy drop was a conscious, if poor, choice. I agree with everything you said.
I feel like the piano should have remained as a supporting element (like the parts where it echoes in the background should stay but it is weird to listen to as the vocal coverings). For future reference, I recommend you replace the vocal melodies with plucks rather than piano.
The 'drop' has little impact and is much too quiet comparing to the verses. I enjoyed some of your orchestral parts.. but other than that, your instrumental/percussion choice, composition and mixing needs work (heard about the volume issues so strive to get that fixed!).
Most improvement in the aspects I mentioned will come with time and experience/ exposure to good mixing (etc.), so don't worry too much yet.
Keep it up!
Thank you for the review Chael! Thanks as well for the advice about vocal replacement. I just want to clear something up about instrument choice— I do not have any VSTs at the moment. Any. So I can only use presets, which results in some sad instrumentation. However, I'm not sure I understand the "composition" issues— I pride myself on being good compositionally, if nothing else. Perhaps PM me and elaborate, if you don't mind?
As for improving over time, I hope so, but at this point I don't know; my average review score has paradoxically gotten lower as I get more experience using Logic Pro.
Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to review!
Hmm... well, it's not bad.
On the other hand, the piano part could really use a bit more complexity, along with the fact that this cover is a bit lacking in volume after the drop.
On the other hand, the melody was replicated spot-on, so don't give up! Maybe a remaster in the future?
Thank you! I attribute volume issues to my DAW... I had to do a LOT of work to get it as loud as it is. I'll work on it as best I can, but no matter what I do, someone always complains. C'est la vie.
