Woot! No premade loops this time! Everything was played out with a MIDI keyboard.
100 bpm
8 tracks
I wanted to keep this simple.

Sorry about the length... I knew you guys would bitch about it being too short so I decided to loop it :P I hope it loops well enough without being too noticeable.

I love this! :D


A very nice track if I do say so myself. A nice eery feeling to it, along with a nice beat, too. This track would be perfect for like an alien planet or something like that. Nice looping structure, too. Great job man!

Suggestions: some more instruments would be greatly appreciated. This track needs some more melodies. But it IS ambient, so I dunno.

I thought about putting a little more layering into it and make it longer, but I was out of ideas so I just left it as it was rather than risk ruining it. I don't know if it's worth revisiting. Thanks for the review.

Perfect for a time-challenge abstract puzzle game.

Does indeed loop pretty well.

The melody that rides through the whole thing makes me think of a puzzle game where you're trying to work out the puzzle in the fastest time you can. There wouldn't be a time limit. The graphics would only be basic shapes - lines and perhaps squares and circles, as well as corner curves and equilateral triangles. There'd be an awful lot of black. Maybe cogs?

The long drawn out notes work well and I like the quickly played melody that starts at 0:19.

I don't have much to criticise. The beats and melody seem oppressive and it could get too much for some folk after 10 minutes or so. But without it there wouldn't be that same tension.

Maybe lowering the volume of them by a tad?

My other criticism is that the start and end feel a bit vacant - specially in comparison to the middle.

I like the imagery you saw in it, nice :) I had a game in mind when I made this, that's why I made it loop. Yeah you're right about the beat, and looking back I don't really like the bass in this one. Needs moar pads.

Great song

This is a cool tune, makes me think of difficulty. Like a tough problem that you need to solve. Its got that sorta mechanical thinking feel to it. Also its a kinda cautious track. I think it would work very well in a game.

Its got some good sounds to it, its a bit repetative but its not too long so thats good. Also the loop is very good too!!

Nice work!! <3


Good for puzzles

This would work nicely with a puzzle game. It sounds complex, like the workings of a mind trying to sort a jigsaw puzzle out.

I like the repeating quickfire melody that you've produced here. It works really well with the bass beat that you've laid down. The only thing that I'd suggest is making it a little longer to add slightly more variation in. Without this, the loop works - I can't tell when it finishes to be honest, but With more variation, it's going to appeal to the wider audience of flash makers.
