Heh, I remember my first song... :D
It was... well, you could go listen to it for yourself. XD But this easily beats it, by far. That means... well, as SBB said, you have a lot of potential. :)
I've got lots of things to say about this song... I'm not going to go easy on you just because you're a beginner. >:)
Firstly, and most importantly, your drums - they came with FL Studio, correct? Well, get out there and invest in some better ones - if you want to get anywhere in music making, avoid those FL Studio drums like the plague. I'll send you a PM with a few options right after I finish reviewing this song. As far as the usage of your samples, everything seems to be fine - next time, though, I wouldn't reccomend a closed hihat for the offbeat. Go with an open hihat instead - generally they sound a lot better on the offbeat. What you could do with closed hihats is either go the lazy way, and have it play 16th notes next to the rest of the percussion - which works, but this other way I'm about to mention is a lot better. See, you also have the option of creating a closed hihat line with multiple samples, or going even more advanced and making sure it sounds good with the open hihat, too - I'm hardly there myself, though. ;D
The bass is decent, though not amazing - you've let it sit on the offbeat, which can work out to be quite catchy sometimes - unfortunately, it's a very unoriginal thing to do. Next time, try arping it - I reccomend doing it manually on the piano roll, but the built-in arpeggiator FL Studio gives you (click on the channel button of a synth in the step sequencer, go to the last tab, and find the arpeggiator) could give you some ideas. Listen to other songs and see what they do with the bass, that could give you some ideas, too.
Your synths overall are good, but sound quite plain. Next time, play around with the FX FL Studio gives you - The Fruity Filter, Fruity Flangus, Fruity Fast Dist, and Fruity Parametric EQ 2 are some of my favorites. :) Done right, your synths will sound completely different and a LOT more original... but only if you practice, of course. ;) Another option is to invest in some new synths - for example, Nexus (go to http://www.refx.net) is an awesome VSTi I use all the time - it's easy to use and the synths (though it can have drums, too! :D) are very high-quality. ;) Just a few thoughts.
The composition... well, it's a remix, so I can't really credit you for any of it. Again, like SBB said, make an original song next - I want to see how it turns out. >:)
Overall a nice start! It's your first song so I won't give you too low of a score. ;) Most of the stuff I mentioned in this review is pretty advanced, so don't try to figure it ALL out while making your next song. Just go a little bit at a time. ;) If you don't understand something in this review, or have a question, feel free to PM me. Looking forward to your next! :D
the frequent deep kick and bass turns out pretty annoying in the start, I'd suggest not going so heavy with the bass-boosting on the kick, and prolly get something more interesting in that part. I like the sawtoothe lead you got playing the melody, but the very high pitched variation of it doesn't really fit in. Massive strings pad in the background is really good sounding though. It's getting pretty repetitive in the last part.
Though I haven't heard the original, I really liked this song. Some small fixes and this will be an awesome little tune. You got some talent so ya better come up with some originals to hear how good you really are
now review me back or else :)
Awsome remix.I loved it,I haven't heared the original,but this remix sounds so damn epic.
Voted five just to fix your score,lol.
