Reasoner- Ticking Away

Author Comments

Occasionally I like to do what is commonly referred to as "rocking out". When this kind of feeling hits me, I tend to write something that has more of an edge to it and allows me to rock my head back and forth in satisfaction. I promised everybody something more fleshed out then my previous piano solo tracks, and so here it is. I know it's not my typical sound that people are used to, but it's good to step out of that comfort zone right? In any case, enjoy the trip and let me know if you've got any suggestions for future projects.

P.S....Forgive the massive compression around the 2:20 marker...mastering is something that I will always need improving on.


Pretty Damn Good...

I am going to agree with Bjra on that the synths are loud at parts but the loudness felt necessary at parts I thought that the hats were a little to loud too. I forgive the massive compression, more mastering and this could easily be a top NG song. But damn the progressions and builds in the song were sweet! The beats as well, were right there with the progressions. nice submission, and if you change anything with the song please let me know.

Glad that you enjoyed the trip. Everyone's making it pretty clear that the mixing could still use some work, but I'm glad you all are finding good things about it regardless


it's not ambient, apart from the start:)
It's interesting though, i think the synths may be a little loud in the mix in comparison to the beats, they definitely over-ride the mix.
Nice breakdown, that's my fav bit of the trk.
As you say, with some better mastering this could be really good, the arrangement and development is very good apart from the end perhaps, that could use some more thought.

Good tune, 5'd

'Preciate the feedback bro. Yes the ending could of ended much better, but I got to a certain point and knew I needed to mix this thing down and be done with it finally lol. My mastering techniques also leave much to be desired. Thanks for 5'ing it though :-D

Woah awesome song bro

Def one of the best of the week so far!
I say you always stay in the "rocking out" mood because it kicks major ass!

Reasoner responds:
