Hello! This is a review for the NGUAC competition.
I've gone over one or two general categories of issues specific to your song, and one section of things I think also deserve complimenting. I prefer being very direct with my critique, none of it is meant to offend. Thank you for your understanding!
- This song is EXTREMELY flat. That's visible in the waveform of course, but it's also clearly the case in the sound. The track is essentially two loops repeated, with one coming in after one hypermeasure and stopping a hypermeasure before the audio ends. There's gotta be some variation here, man. At least in how the chords are played, maybe a melody, a B section entirely would be fantastic.
- Second point is to do with the mixing. It sounds like the signal is muffled. The actual guitar is pretty much nothing but mids, and there's a background noise that sounds almost like air being hollow inside whatever cabinet you're using. There isn't really anything to suggest for mixing specifically, but I would definitely recommend checking to make sure that your cables aren't loose and to twiddle with the settings to see if you can get a clearer sound.
Compliments to the Composer:
- Honestly, your playing sounds pretty nice. The tone is good outside of the mid focus and noise, and I could almost see this being part of a garage type band under the rhythm guitar section.
Final score: 2.5
