pretty good for an accident
ireckon it was good for an flstudio beat and yeah 9/10
Gotta mix up the presets man.
There is some good things about this track, and there is some bad.
First off - All those presets... and chopper / arpeggiator presets... Are THEY most overused patterns known to the internet.
You gotta mix it up man, You have some really good layering here, the levels were good, and even the mastering sounded good. But I just can't get past those pre-written synth lines. Jump in the piano roll and shift them about until you create something of your own.
Trust me, for i made the same mistake when learning FL studio. You may not think so at first, but everyone who has ever touched FL has used those same synth lines at one point or other, :p.
Although I can feel your effort in creating this, and I do respect that.
All though I like the some what 8-bit feel of the bass / snare sound. And it reminded me of the game "Kirby's dream land" on the second level. So thats a good thing, because I'm sure someone who makes flash games could put this too good use.
But as actual music to stand alone, It fails due to lack of originality, But still redeems a bit with the overall structure as a whole.
Thanks for the review! Yeah I wasn't actually intending on writing this haha. It's just something I found in FL and threw it together in a couple of minutes. Though, I've found that there are arpeggiators that I don't mind, so I probably will end up going through them and re-writing them. I did change 2 of the chords for the preset I used for the guitar, and added a simple melody over that. But yes, I agree. I can do better. You should check out my other songs if you haven't already. Some of them are kind of progressive metal, and others are industrial-ish. For the song Condemnation however, you will have to go to my myspace profile if you want to listen. The file was too big for NG. Thanks again!
I like it dude, I'm liking the sounds you are pulling out of just straight FL studio stuff with no external software.
Keep it up!
Thanks! I'm glad you liked it haha. Yeah I tried getting Cubase Sx3, but it came with this fucking virus : /
