This is a song that is made in FL Studio 7. Me and a friend made it for a school project.

I had to reduce the quality to make the song get below 8MB, which is the file size limit on NG's Audio Portal.

I would appreciate reviews. All reviews will be replied to!

Thanks :)

They say good things come to those who wait, so I hope you'll enjoy my amazingly late review.

The beginning is promising. The pad is a bit raw, I'd suggest you to slap a wee little low pass filter on it for a smoother, more pleasant sound. Reverb should do great too. The small details and sfx add a great lot of depth, don't be afraid to pump the tune full of them.

It's weird how it changed so abruptly from the mellow beginning to a typical cheesy tune - seriously, detuned saws with a basic four on the floor for a beat - I mean, it works, but so many songs are built around those two elements. It's misleading though, it changes FAST into something more enjoyable. And that's good (watch out for the off-tempo drums at the 1:00-1:02 transition, a very minor flaw).

Cool, some new part now- a weird kick drum and a plunky little synth bass introducing a piano. Perfectly balanced reverb, I'd say- not too much, but enough to make the original sound a lot richer. Nice. What's up with 1:42-1:44 though? O.o

Then it wanders around a bit, alternating between the different part while still keeping the decent flow.

It's a pretty good song, it's just a lot of minor things that could need improvements:
- Work on the transitions - especially in the beginning- at some parts there's a noticeable silent area between parts that disturb the flow of the track
- Mixing - It isn't exactly clipping, but there sure is some peaking around. Did you put a compressor on the master track or something? Drag some of the master volume sliders down, and it will sound much better.
- The detuned saw synth - it just sounds incredibly generic. :) Try adding just a bit more filtering, chorus or reverb, preferably all of them.

Note that I am overly picky when reviewing and mainly focus on where to improve. It surely was an overall enjoyable tune with a lot of potential. Good work!

Assios responds:

Thank you very much! It was definitely worth the wait :D You've covered everything, and your review is just awesome. Thanks!


Intro was good, the sudden tone/mood change threw me off
Would have preferred it keeping the same pitch
still a nice effort

Assios responds:

I appreciate your opinion. Thanks:)


I was kinda looking forward to what you'd do with the song after I heard the intro. But the main song and the intro didnt fit together. They were both good though individually. The song itself is quite good, but seems to go weirdin places. LIke the random pitch bend, the break down type thing that had a small pause at the start ofit. THey just didn't seemto fit together at all. But a good job nonthe less. Take your time
