Well, I started making this one while running off of Go Fast! Energy drinks the other night, and I decided that I would do something that I haven't tried since VERY early in my use of FL: I was going to make a two-and-a-half minute song with good mastering, good drums, good synths, and a good melody, with only one catch..... It would be done in two hours. And while I completed this one about twenty minutes early, I still achieved what I wanted. I had a two minute and twenty-two second song with some good mastering, and all of the above things I wanted. This one is fairly repetitive, even though it's short. I didn't intend for it to come out this way, but it was like I had cut the song into two halves - the first 1:11 is one riff, and the next 1:11 is a different one. And while I felt kinda iffy cutting a lot of corners in order to complete it in time, I still had quite a blast making it. It was a little nice being able to make a song and not have to put the usual ton of work into it (I'm not saying that I'm gonna cut corners more often). Describing some of the synths, I'd have to say that this one has some more unusual synth work in it than few of my songs. The bass layer is nearly too low, and some of the saw are almost too high - there's not too much in the mid-range for this one until later in the song. There's a ton of arpeggiating sounds in this one as well... I don't usually make arp melodies. But nonetheless, whatever is bad about this song, I still think that it turned out pretty well for being made in just those two hours.

Too False

Nothing yet from the asshole: ME!


Nice song, I like the background beats :D.

Very cool song.

I think that this is probably your best song yet. While it was done in 2 hours, it is very nicely mastered, nice drums, and extremely nice synths. I didn't like the squashy-sounding bass synth in the first 1:11 that came in around :40 with the higher synth... It seemed to detract from the energy there in my opinion. Also, some of the build-ups in the second 1:11 seemed too large or too small, and made it a little confusing when you ended so abruptly. Not necessarily a bad thing (the second part), but just an opinion.

But nonetheless, still a great song. 9/10 5/5.

Stargame responds:

Haha, my best? Trust me, even for a well mastered song, this one is definitely not my best. My truly best is not something that I'm willing to share at the moment. Anyway, thank you for the in depth review.

Very nicely done

This song is pretty well made for only spending 2 hours on it. Quite a feat I must say. I don't know if I can say anything to improve on that you haven't mentioned yet, so I won't

keep up the good work and if you keep challenging your self then eventually you will be able to make an excellent song in that 2 hour time period.

Good luck

Pretty Decent

Overall good song I would of done two things though. Put a pad in and like you said put a better bass in maybe a little higher and more squarish.
