Excuse the long intro
please be patient

heres a poem i found while thinking of a name for my demo
it inspired me to to make this song even better than what i planned,
and giving me a name as well.

-------------------------
IN OCEAN DREAMS

Hazel blue anemone
In a little seaside cave
Drawing currents from the sea
Turquoise blue on sparkling waves.

In ocean dreams, the poet waits
By his grotto, passing days
Rhyming verse, his mind creates
Where the smiling sea nymph plays.

The lapping seas of emerald green
Stir the poet's fantasy
Neath crystal skies aquamarine
And cotton clouds that drift so free.

Ageless are the diamond sands
That stretch across this heaven shore
With quill in hand, this poet stands
By Neptune's realm forevermore.

ohhhhh snap =]

your best yet, for sure. but yeah i have nothing more to add to the advice that one guy below me gave xD

this definitely has AMAZING potential, just fix those things up / add more.

but main thing for me is try and make your introduction more of a hook =] / faster? i dunno, thats just my opinion .

i LOVE it at 2:09 and afterward, then its just great. keep it up



A huge Improvement!

I liked what you did. The original was good and you just polished it perfectly with more beats and the sounds of the ocean. Gives it the depth it needed. A nice balance. Keep up the good work.

:D



Huge Potential!

OMG dude, this is sounding really good! The intro was fine, it nicley captures the underwater world. I wouldnt shorten it at all. The main melody was really relaxing and funky, I liked it alot. The plucky thing that was going along with it was perfect!

The only thing that I would suggest you change for this soung would be to choose a diiferent high-hat for the offbeat "Unce Unce Unce". I would suggest the second open-hihat sample in the "Vintage" section of the FL Stock samples in the "Packs" folder. It's a much nicer, smoother hat, that sounds really good in trance songs.

The FX and stuff throughout the song was really good, and I cant totally picture an ocean fantasy underwater ^_^ You should really be proud of the atmosphere you've managed to create with this song!

Oh, also (just listening to it a 2nd time now), in the intro, you should fade the offbeat bass in. You've chosen a good ntrument to use for it, but make a volume automation clip, and fade it in. On top of that, I would make the snare a little quieter too.

I dont know if you know how to make an automation clip, but they are really usefull. Just right click the thing you want to automate (In this case, the volume knob next to the bass channel), and select "create Automation Clip". The automation clip will show up in your playlist down the bottom, and you basically can adjust what happens to the volume during the song. If you are having trouble using them, just PM me and I will help you out, or you can google a "FL Automation Clip Tutorial"

Anyways, to sum it all up, I can see HUGE potential in both this song, and you as an artist. You have a great sense of structue, and harmonic melodies. And everything that this song is lacking in, all comes with experience. So Keep it up, Keep composing, and chuck me a PM next time you release something, cuz Im keen on seeing how you improve!

thx man
very good advice
yes i do know how to make automation clips
i will definitely use your advice on the hats, snare and the auto clip
thx again


Nice

The intro was wayyy too long IMO and the pinging sound in it was kindof annoying, the rest showed a fair amont of effort, but I feel it could have used a wee bit more variation to it Sounds more like this song belongs in the "trance" section than the "miscellaneous" section.

Peace
