Kinda basic, but since you're just starting out, I can excuse it. The piano & synths bug me a little, but we all have different tastes. And, wow is this short. Nice work, nonetheless, Galva. ~S~ (And Kyron was wrong, some people in the GD community will rate this, like me)

Thx for the review :P and yea I made the song pretty short because I only wanted to practice making melodies and basslines etc
That's also why the instruments suck lol

I'm going to rate this honestly, since everyone in the Geometry Dash community will not.

The mixing is subpar. I hear some clipping, which is quite easily avoidable depending on your DAW. FL has a really nice algorithm that keeps the sounds from clipping as long as you don't raise them above 0dB, or the place that they lock at. If it's still clipping, don't be afraid to throw a limiter on. It should prevent all clipping if you don't do anything crazy. The low chords are much louder than the main melody, which should stand out more than anything. The drums also need to cut through the mix more, as they don't really have much presence in this.

The sound design could also be better. I understand that you don't have the VSTs to have great sound design, but FL still has some pretty nice stock plugins. If you just got the bare minimum FL version, I would suggest maybe buying a plugin or two. Image-Line is selling all of their plugins for half off, and many other VSTs are probably on sale as well. After that, just play around with the waves you can get and figure out what they sound like and how they can be modified. With listening to the type of music you want to create you start to get a feel for which sounds should be used. Using presets is also fine, but learning sound design will help you customize your tracks more.

The last thing I'll tell you to work on for now is variation and filling space. I can't stress these enough. You always want to have something new or different happening. It helps the listener stay interested and come back for more. Now, while more is better, like all things, too much is bad. Make sure you still have a clear mix when adding new elements. New melodies also help keep listeners listening. I only really heard one overarching melody in this and I would have liked to hear more.

This track was okay for a second track and at the level I'd expect from a new music producer, however, now is the time where improvement should start happening. I've given you things to work on that will make your future tracks better. I've reviewed a bit harshly, but it's better if the blows aren't softened because you're new to making music. In the end, there are many ways to improve.

5/10

Thanks for the feedback man :D
I know I'm absolutely terrible with creating the sounds that I want, and i probably don't have the ear for things like that. (Also btw three of the instruments were defaults, because when I try to make my own sounds they sound worse lol)
I also tend to have problems with clipping (as you said above) a never really knew how to stop it.
I've got the ideas for songs I wanna make but its a lot easier said than done xD
In the end, I guess FL is just experience, you have to take time to find the sounds that you want :P
