Third track from my analogue synth project. It´s a bit different this time and I guess this one can´t really be called synthwave anymore. Although it isn´t really ambient music I guess this fits closest since the track is quite chilled.
Again nearly all sounds were recorded from analogue synthies... For the main sequence I tried to give every tone it´s own character so it variates slightly all the time. Except that this track is quite simple and repitative. More for background listening I guess.

As artwork I took Night Lights by Wrongfire (http://wrongfire.newgrounds.com/)

I love it! It's a lovely atmosphere, that reminds me a lot of video game music. Also, this fits very well together with the art! Wonderful job, dude. Keep it up! :3

Hey! Thanks again for the great review. I guess I'll drop by and get another one :)

First off, holy crap that name.

So right off the bat we have lots of sine waves. And that doesn't really change much throughout the whole song, yet you still made creative sounds out of just that. You did a good job giving different personalities to different tones. This is made especially well with a purposeful use of distortion.

Composition is super cool here. Really nice use of harmonies to produce a tranquil atmosphere with a hint of darkness and distortion.

I hear lots of reverb, which is good. I was just hoping for more delay. Recently I've really started to come to appreciate how ridiculously good delay can be, with the whole textural stereo range thing.

The drum beat at 1:15 is super well done. It's got sufficient range, volume, brightness, and impact.

Biggest gripe is probably the repetition. You're aware of this already, as evidenced by the description. It sounds like it would be good for BGM, as it's just diverse enough, but as a standalone track, the sound becomes dull pretty quickly.

The outro is pretty good, except over time you take out this one harmonic that's present at 3:21, and by 3:26 it's completely gone. I would have personally preferred it if that harmonic remained in the sound all the way, which would allow the track to end more ambiguously - better suited, in my opinion, to this particular sound.

Overall, really nice work! Could definitely see that you tried variation as much as possible.

Wow! Thanks a lot for this detailed review. Np for my review ;) It´s actually some sine waves there but not too much. The thing is I recorded a synth here which has a very soft tone in general (The Vermona Perfourmer). Even Saws sound very soft if you filter the high frequs. So it´s actually a wild mix of lots of different oscillators. I used delay acutally on nearly every track. I used a tape delay and kept it relatively subtle on most tracks. You here it mainly on the mallet like sounds and the bass. Also the marracas (shakers) have a lot of tape delay. The cool thing here is that it gave that drumcomputer shaker sound some contrasting sound after it hits. So it sounds like a shaker shaken back and forth. Hmmm... I think after 3:26 it´s just the reverb tail of this pad like string sound. So I didn´t take any tone out by purpose but I get what you mean ;) So again: Thanks a lot for the nice feedback!

This is quite an unique melody. Well done.

Thanks a lot! Really glad you like it. I tried to find a different tone here in sound and melody, although it became quite repitative...
