I've got most of the instruments where I want them, but I'm open to suggestions. But really I need opinions on the mix and mastering.

This is pretty much finished, but I'm unhappy with the abrupt change from one song to the next at 2:15. Am I just being pedantic cause I've worked on it all morning or is there any suggestions to improve it?
Also any constructive crit about the rest of the song too would be much appreciated.

I'd appreciate some input. I feel like I need to improve the melodies and some of the other elements in the song.

Hello everyone! I'm new to NG and the Audio Portal, and I would love to get some feedback in regards to my arrangement if anyone has time.

I've always loved the Green Greens theme from the Kirby games, and a few weeks ago I felt like rearranging it for orchestra. This is the mess I came up with. It could be cleaner, but I threw it together at like 2am.

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

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.
