I really like this.

It's nice, calm, and very relaxing.

Thank you Bro, I want to remake this someday. I got much better in Production and this is about half a year old actually, check my latest Tracks and you'll see what I mean xDD Also this Song was planned as part of a 3 Song Setup, I still have to do the others. If you like Ambient AND HipHop I can tell ya I am working on a Song putting em both together >,< It already sounds amazing but I'm not finished yet...

Thanks for the Review

good start

cool track to start things off

idea, style, and melody r all really cool

but each could use a little improvement

idea - the nature sounds r nice... but the loop is kind of just thur in the bg.
like try to make it fit the song more specifically.
for example those same nature sounds can be thrown on lots of dif songs n still work... rather than only working on this song n really enchancing just this song.
dunno if u get what i mean lol...

style - the style is pretty much perfect... suits the idea very well. but u could use some drums lol

melody - awesome melody... but a few of the notes r off at times (on the strings)...

neways keep it up

ill contribute... eventually... lol im busy -___-

Thanks for review, I see Shek used some nature sounds too. Maybe I inspired him ^^ the nature sounds are no loops at all, I got many different insects to simulate. I just made my first automatic clip (yeyh) and tryed to make them sound a bit random. After thinking about it, well some drums would have been good... Can't edit now... I think usin' FL Demo is worse than usin' GB XD - And as I sayd about the off notes, sry I can't spot them. I'm not that well adept for now ;)

One problem.

The only thing I saw wrong with the music was that you didnt create those cricket noises. But, I normally don't care about that. Neither will anyone else. It was very simple and more like background music than anything. Would go great with a point n click game where you are in a forest and need to get out. Very atmospheric.

Near 1:40 it got really good. You make it just the way I do. You did great with the build up.

On the downside of things, I noticed some off tune notes in there that hurts you ears every now and then. For a beginner in ambient, this was a great start for making music.

Good job!

AeraDynamic responds:

Hm, I think creating the crickets without nothing don't work ;) Sure I used a Plugin to do, what is wrong in using Plugins? Don't get the point... I can't spot any off notes here, but I'm not in the position to say that - guess my ears are not as trained as yours till now. Thanks for review

^^ =)

cool ambient , but it could be more percussion =)

AeraDynamic responds:

Yeah, I know some drums or percs would have been nice. Didn't care about that as I made it, dunno y '\O,O/'

Not bad...

This would make great backround music. I think the only problem is that there should be a bit more percussion, to keep it as interesting as it can be.

AeraDynamic responds:

I appreciate your comment :) Was my first touch at Ambient so far, I wanted it that smooth, floating way it is. Only issue is the volume as you can hear, or better can't ^^ I made this at night while everyone was asleep...
