Hi,
just while discovering the available audio on NG i'm gifted to listen to this piece which i loved :D
The arrangment was well-made, i was never bored and the arpeggio catches the attention even though the main pattern i s repeated a certain number of times. I love the 80's toms at 1:08 1:13 ... I don't know how to make it sound like this sadly :/ I was surprised also by the vocoder (in a good way).

One negative IMHO : the crashing cymbal are really too loud (2:05)

Thanks for the review! Sorry if it was loud although it wasn't loud for me at all when i was making it, so i'm kind of limited to trying to make it equal for everyone.

Welp, biased here because I just like synthwave, listened to this quite a few times now.

It is awesome to hear you pay more attention to your stereo image! And I'm really happy that happened when you decided to play around with synthwave. You're definitely improving fast, as far as techincal ability there's not much I can really say, you know as much as I know at this point it seems. The style is very true to what synthwave is, especially in the synths that you used and in the arragement of your chords and leads. The arp at 45s really sells it for me. If you wanted to go more in the direction of synthwave, I would recommend using something for either vinyl or tape emulation (or maybe try to do it your own, maybe difficult but unnecessary). iZotope vinyl is a good start for this (bit annoying to work with sometimes but it does a good job). Even bitcrushing can be useful for this genre. A song I used as a mixing reference (especially for percussion) in synthwave was Turbo Killer by Carpenter Brut and iZotope was became very useful. Maybe it would be lame to just copy it, but being able to achieve that sound might help, idk. Love the transition and the swells for the beginning of a new phrase, you got that shit down.

My only suggestion is the snare/rimshot you used in the intro. I do like how it contrasts the percussion you have in the chorus, however it doesn't fit with the feel of the song for me in the context of synthwave for me. Gives me a march feel or maybe it's a bit intense for the progression behind it, it's hard to tell exactly what it is when you're only working off of the immediate feeling something gives you.

Love it, you keep doing you.
