Edit: Well look at that. 2,999 listens. Goodbye, editing/removing options. :D


Read my latest news post for information on this one, I'll extend this description later. Still a WIP - this is just a demo render - I'll be submitting the finished version... when it's finished! ;D

It's a little bit loud, you might need to turn down your volume. :P

The main things I need suggestions on are the overall mix/EQ, as well as structure - like I said in the news post, this song is pretty much finished, except I don't know what I want to do for the intro, ending, everything in between, etc. Though any comments are welcome. :D

Also check out the reversed version, which I'll be submitting later... I think it's awesome! >:)



god i love this song. keep making that progress and finish it up. cant wait to see this one all together.

Karco responds:

Heh, I'll try, seeing as it's on the All-Time Top Scoring, giving this one another shot probably has some merit to it. ;) Thanks for the review, glad you liked it.

yeah yeah yeah

The intro is fine just as it is having it explode is great! the progression is wonderful eqing isn't that bad actually i don't here it clipping at all. keep it up man. It's hot.

Karco responds:

Yeah, I decided that a while ago. And I'm not complaining if you're not. :) Thanks for the review.

make it fini....

add a finishing touch and put a full on it
this sounds really good even for a demo

music is supposed to be loud people adjust on their own taste not cos of something u may have(supposedly) done wrong.


Karco responds:

Heh, glad you think so (about the loudness thing). Thanks for the review. :P

not to bad.

lol its like a love song almost.. I think it does need a little work over all though its got a great sound and when you do i'm sure it'll shine like no other =). OVer all though i like it! great work!


Karco responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it. :)

Finish it, damnit!

It has potential to be a great tune, but like you said, it's a demo, so no full score from me! 4 and 8 is respectable, anyway.

Now some creative criticism. (You wouldn't put up a demo unless you wanted some, right :) Ok!

The first thing that came to mind is that the song is too slow. You're plodding along at 109 bpm. Unless you're intentionally taking the song slow, you should really take this tune waaaay up, between 150-160. Most dance tunes fall between 130-145, but because of the sound, styling and chords progression, this tune would be better suited at a faster dance temper, ala the happy/frantic tunes of DDR. When you develop the song you might want to make a really slow section in the middle, only to build it up to full speed again. It would create some tremendous hype.

Second: do not apologize for it being too loud! That's what this music is supposed to be!

EQing and compression: You need it. Since all your sounds are high energy you need to make sure they all have some wiggle room. I also want to hear everything else throb around that kick.

Also on the high energy note: Use a good resonant lowpass filter to roll off the high end in sections, then and build up into a huge sweeping crescendo.

Well, that should get you started!.. Then again, I could develop the song for you if you like! Damnit! Now I really want to! :P I already have a remix of Temple in the pipeline, so what's one more, right?

Let me know!

Keep up the good work.

Karco responds:

Eh, it's a demo, that isn't likely to be finished. It kinda got left behind by my other projects which took priority over it. :\

And yep, you're right! ;D I'll respond to your thoughts point by point...

I AM taking the song slow, I tried to get this to be a slower-paced, though still energetic, trance song. ;) I've tried before to speed it up... it didn't work out too well, to be honest. :\

Ha, ok. :D

EQing/Compression were probably the two hardest parts of making this song and probably what killed the chances of this getting finished. I know what you mean by wiggle room, I talk about it all the time in my reviews. ;D

Hmm, interesting thought with the lowpass filter, it sounds a bit simple in my opinion but I'll try it if I get the chance. ;) Sounds like something I'd put in a buildup after the breakdown or something.

You'd develop the song for me? :O Well, if you have Nexus (and possibly a few expansions) and VEC2, then I'll send you the .flp myself. :P It's not going to get anywhere with me, anyway... heck, maybe we could turn it into a collab of some kind. :P Check your PM inbox.

Thanks for the detailed review, glad you liked it! :D
