Special note: Half the song's an intro, wait for drums before you hit buttons 0-5

This is mostly a test to see how well I can use a piano, and apperently I can't

Sounds cheap :P

The piano sounds very synthesized. Try adding reverb or something, man...this is an ambient song, after all. And where's the bass? This sounds very incomplete.
- Add some effects, like reverb and filtering, to the piano.
- Put some variation in the piano melody! It got very monotonous.
- Needs, NEEDS a bassline.
- The rain cuts in and out way too quickly, it's jarring.

Just some constructive criticism. :)

New-Milkman responds:

Apperently piano needs reverb. Because almost EVERYONE has said that. Good to know though. And I have no idea why there isn't a bassline. It must have been me really bored, and thinking I could do ambient because of my other one :P And I tried to somehow automate the rain to make it sound smoother, but I got frustrated and gave up... wow, I got lazy on this one.

Thanks for the review!

this is ok

the piano is a little dry and tedious,
but the drums arnt bad.
alltogether not bad

what i was wondering tho is
who swrily hellx is. i heard u mention him next to greeksta
as great ng hip-hop artists, so i wanted to listen to him, but i coldnt find him.

New-Milkman responds:

Not bad eh? Well, maybe after a while I'll have to try some more ambient stuff. But for now, I'm starting from scratch and re-learning what I had from older submissions, and hopefully I can make more improvements in stuff.

And also, Swirly-Helix can be found right here:


sounds all...
have you two been...nevermind...
(y do people hate you?)

New-Milkman responds:

Personally, I think that it's understandable people don't like this. The piano is out of tune, and the drums are kind of... "weak". I could probably do better, but thanks for the review!


Rain samples don't really give a mood to that at all... I mean, you got the realistic sound of it down, now you just gotta add some reverb to that. Also for the piano. Piano needs lots of reverb. Cause now it just sounds like a shitty FL Keys horrible ish out of tune ouch :'(

Needs a lot more work really. Start with the reverbin' and then go and fix the horrible piano sound and the completely out of key thang

Send me a midi of that and I could try to fix it up lal

New-Milkman responds:

Lal, a MIDI.... I sort of want to forget about this, but remember to use reverb more often. Mostly I was playing around with a piano VST that I got, and figured I might as well try something. I defiantly had to think if I wanted to upload this or not, and I obviously decided that I should, considering I haven't done much in a while.

Thanks for the review tho!

every sample needs to be adjusted man!!!!!!!

it's nice but it sounds generec i think i heard sumthin like this before.

if u ever get the chance remake this song and adjust every sample.
than i can llistin to it like 10 times more.

New-Milkman responds:

Actually, I don't think I'll be redoing this any time soon. Really it was just an excuse to use a new piano VST that I got and check out my non-existent piano skills.

Thanks for the review!
