I'm making this in live 8 and so far it's pretty rough. These aren't all the instruments I plan on using.
How can I make this sound better?

Please could you have a listen to this, its what i got so far, which isn't alot. My problem is #1 finding the right synth sounds to fit the tune and #2 finding a way to add more parts so it flows well. I am new to dnb and im having a difficult time making transitions that work in this style of song. That is why i have left it as is. Ideally i want some ups and downs and not to much repetition. All advice/honest opinions appreciated.

Hello everyone on newgrounds.com. I have been posting on here for quite a few years. I have a relatively new Heavy metal band together called Damage Done. We play more melody influenced metal like Five Finger Death Punch, 36 Crazyfist, Metallica, In Flames, Atreyu.
We have recently released a song called Social Anxiety and would love to hear some feedback.

So, a while back, the media teacher at my (now former) high school asked me if I would do him a favor.
He needed me to record a parody version of YMCA, called "READ." It would be a song for the elementary aged kids to sing along to, and hopefully inspire them to be scholarly young individuals.
Yeah, not likely.
Still, I was more than happy to help out.
But, there was a catch: I only had one night to complete it.
What?!
That's not how music works, buddy!
However, being the softie that I am, I cheerfully obliged.
I had a few hours to craft a song that people would be forced to listen to on repeat for weeks.
That's a full plate!
But I didn't have enough time to perfect it - only enough to complete it.

TL;DR: I had to make an educational parody of YMCA, and I don't know if it's worth posting to the audio portal.

Let me know what you think!


I voice act because I'm insecure about my weight.

So as I've only been making dance tracks lately, I thought I would give a new style a shot. This is kinda like a chill dubstep song. I think it's called ChillStep, but I'm not really sure.
Anyways, I'm not really used to this genre at all, and this is only my first shot at it and it's just a work in progress.
I would really much like to get some feedback on this. As I said, I'm not really that familliar with this genre at all, so I'm probably not any good at it, but I would like to be able to make other genres than dance and house, and I've quite enjoyed dubstep lately :).
Anyways, please leave feedback. It would mean so much to know if this has any potential or not

Hey everyone, not sure if this thread is still used much but If you guys could review some songs I am coming up with and let me know what you think / what I could add or remove I would appreciate it greatly. I'm not a great musician at the best I am good and I would just like some feedback on the stuff I've made. Thanks to anyone that helps out.

Unfinished: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/582963?updated=1

Current Project: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/582798

These songs are in the Rock Genre so if you don't want to review them because of that but any help at all would be great. Thanks again for your time.

Here's one that's different from my taste of music that I tried making. I mostly want to know what you guys like, dislike, and think mainly of it. This was just something I threw together in maybe a few hours or so. If this does turn out to be something you guys like I may try to make more like this but still go on with my rock music.

Electronic / drums n' bass-ish style.

and I actually almost forgot about this one that I made but here's one more rock one that I made. This is also unfinished but I think this is a solid song if I could just add drums, bass and vocals.

Hey guys, I have a new one that I am working on. This one is with an actual band this time. Though, everything you will hear in the recording is just myself at the moment. I would really appreciate if you guys checked this one out and gave me some pointers on it. (There's actually drums in this one)

I mostly would like a review on the small amount of drums I have in this song. You may review the piece as a whole of course but I would like to know if I'm going in the right direction with the drums.

This is a sample work I made. I could not post it on Newgrounds because it was only 13 seconds, and I need some help with working with FL Studio.

I am having trouble adding my own melody to the track list....

I'd add some more things but I like what you've got so far - I recommend adding some reverb on the clicks (quite high tail) some longer decay on the kicks (or just your own sub with a long release, an 808 kick sample with long decay and on the right note would work nicely) and the white noise thing sounds way too harsh. try bringing down the vol of that a bit and maybe removing the frequencies around 20khz+
