Well this is my first full song in a while. One day last week, I some how managed to sleep from 5pm to 11pm. When I woke up I had this erge to mess around in FL. So I played around with it till 1:30am ish. So I got like a minute done of it and went to bed. I played with it through the week but never got anywhere. Today I was inspired, and I pushed to get it done. I'm quite happy with the sound in the end. Leave me a review. You can critique, flame, congratulate, don't really care as long as you review :P.

Oh btw, this song sounds terrible through headphones...



Pretty good

Hmmm, it felt like the mastering was cluttered on this track. Instruments and channels were colliding with each other, while this gives is a "full" sound it also hurts its clarity and stereo image. As Sycross said, the drums were spread too far from the center of the stereo image, and the reverb that was on them didn't match the rest of the track. If you cleaned up the mastering and fixed the drums I think that this would be an enjoyable song - keep it up!

Thanks for the review... Yeah, I'm trying to get better at mixing down but it's taking me time to find my way up the learning curve. I got sometime today, I'll go back and see what I can do. Thanks.

SmdSkata responds:

:) Thanks.


You wanted a review, so here goes:

Some Cons:
-The percussion sounds out of tune with the rest of the song, and kinda creates an unpleasant dissonance.
-Might want to take another look at some of your transitions. They are ok right now, but could use some buildup leading into them.

-Enough variation to make non-repetitive.
-Good, rich sound.

8/10, 4/5, Great song, just work on the things I stated.

Look forward to more from you,

SmdSkata responds:

Thanks for the list...and your time :).

Yeah I really need to practice with my drums. I really do lack in that area.

You are also right about transitions. The song really doesn't grow, just stays towards the same level.

I will work on it for my next song...
