HAPPY PICO DAY!!!!


I spent the past week working on this sick-ass fresh meat track. it's just an ode to Newgrounds as a whole with a fuck ton of samples from different newgrounds memes


Bless this god damn website and thank you, Fulp.


ALSO THANK YOU TO BAILEY AND JERRY FROM CRY HARD, MY BROTHERS AND ROOMMATES WHO MADE THIS TRACK SOUND WAY BETTER THEN I EVER INTENDED!!!!

CHECK OUT THEIR MUSIC AND SHIT, LOOK THEM UP, PLEASE, IF YOU LIKE THIS TRACK


also my other roommate and sister Sweetestpot also made a fnf pico remix for pico day so you should also check that out if youre looking for pico day shit, ya know? Badda bing


Nerdy production shit:

If you notice something off key (thanks skyewint for pointing it out) I just found out as of writing this that the guitar used to record this the frets were so worn down that it was a half step down from the key the song is in so until we can get it rerecorded, this is the only version available, my biggest apologies!


Lyrics:

rolling tank no sleep

bastards fighting

but all I know

flash is gone now (x2)


rolling tank no sleep

bastards fighting

but all I know

flash is gone now (x2)


rolling tank no sleep

bastards fighting

but all I know

flash is gone now

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!

Constructive Criticism:

- A big problem plaguing this track is the lack of any consistent key. At the very beginning, the alarm sound effect is out of tune with your chords. However, even after that, your synth arpeggios underneath the singing and chords are entirely out of tune with the chords. This happens for quite a bit more of the piece.

- Secondly, the mixing on this is rather poor as well. Many of your elements are buried underneath the raw waveform arps panned to opposite ears, including both the vocals and backing sound effects. I think a full mixing tutorial would be extremely helpful for you. But, regardless, essentially what you want to do is make sure instruments have their own frequency areas. Mids can be more dense, highs can be close together, and bass needs to essentially have only one or two instruments so it doesn't distort the rest of the waveform.

Compliments to the Composer:

- Man, I can clearly hear how hard you're trying for this. And honestly, the vibe with the drums and bass works pretty well. I think by enhancing the vocals a bit, while also quieting down those arpeggios and bringing them in key, you'll have a really tasteful track in full. I think you'll be able to bring everything together with a bit more work and experience in the future, for certain.

Final score: 5.8

ZRKA responds:

Thank you for the review, sorry I responded to this yesterday but felt like I didn't say what I wanted right so I deleted it but I really appreciate this, I will definitely work on the mix, this is not the final version by any means and I do have a little bit of a learning to do but this is my first time mixing something like this so I can definitely see where I need to do some improvements, thank you so much!
