Well at least you don't get 20 second listeners like I do who never vote. I know that they are 20 second listeners because in one of the songs I uploaded (Which is now deleted) the person had said this in their review. (I will not name him/her but s/he knows who s/he is.) It was just too funny. It was one of my older pieces.
"Dude your music is very boring. Its nothing but percussion for like a million minutes with out even a bass line or so much as a tune."
If he would have just listened to the song for about 30 seconds instead of 20 seconds he would have heard the beat kick up, and the base line slam hard. I won't upload it again though because that song is now uh hm.. making me some* money...
I clicked on his/her profile and listened to some of his/her music.... Nothing but the same old drum loops that come with FLS8 and were not even sliced. And I mean he didn't even put it in the beat slicer to make it stick with the tempo. The guitar was on its own tempo and ruined the flow of it all. If I was drunk I might have thrown up because of it.
I didn't review them or even vote on them because the reviews pretty much told him/her what s/he made was a catastrophe. One even said "Dude. BEAT SLICER.... Its your friend."
3 songs later s/he finally figured it out.
I mean sometimes they aren't even 20 second listeners. They are 2 second listeners and if you don't have a beat within those 2 seconds they go off to the next song to zero bomb because it has a 5 and in that 2 seconds they were not happy.
I actually take the time to listen to music that is original. I don't click on anything like "OMFG ZELDA OoT REMIX MIDI STYLE!" or "Halo humming boring tune song because I felt like remixing it." I will admit that I do listen to SOME* of the Final Fantasy remixes. But if it is another version of the FFVII fight theme. Please... FF2 boss battle theme. (Why hasn't anyone done that one yet? Wait... let me do a quick search... Never mind... Someone has... omfg and it is in Midi... Please kill me now...)
Or the most over-remixed theme of them all... (And I mean of them ALL.)
The Super Duper Techno Hardcore Grungy Pop Punk Metal Acoustically Rock n Roll Funk Dancy trance D n B Mario Brothers Collaboration Collection..........
Thank god they made an entire section for nothing but video game remixes. And you know what is even more funny about this? Listen to about a good 100 of them and you will notice something. THEY ALMOST SOUND EXACTLY THE SAME. Some of them just sound like a sped up version of the last one without changing so much as a beat.
(SERIOUSLY. how many remixes does there have to be? And if someone says not enough I am going to go out and start sabotaging servers!)
(And the only reason why I said that I don't click on them even though I heard all of these remixes was because my friend was looking for one... Oh the horrific torture of watching my friend trying to pick just 1. JUST ONE! He couldn't do it so I finally said. JUST PICK ONE AT RANDOM!)
Anyway for those of you who receive a review from me you will notice that I take the time to actually listen to the song. I just wish that in the portal they would at least show you what category the new music is under...
