I started working on this song a few days ago and then kind of didn't get the time I wanted to finish it off until this morning. I spent a short while finishing it up and then I submitted it but realized I wanted to repeat the main piano pattern once more at the end (two instead of one). I removed the submission and fixed it up, and then one of my VSTs kept crashing when I exported so it was never right again.

I spent a fuckload of time and swear words trying different things to get it to export right, and now here it finally is (only really several hours later, but I was really pissed off).

I hope you enjoy it.


cool stuff!

Nice song to listen to! but you should work on that title, its grammar is fail! lol but nice job!

snayk responds:

Glad you liked it!

Yeah, I should definitely fix the title's grammar; art is so shitty when it doesn't follow rules.


Cool, cool

I like it! I gotta say, it's not my fave of your songs, but it still is really, really sweet. And hey, it fits with the title, too! One thing I kinda wished you had done is you had pushed the drums that start at about 2:30 a little bit towards the beginning, 'cause they're really good. It makes for a really ambient song, so keep it up, Snayk! :)

p.s. I downloaded FL studio recently, and man... how do you do it? It blew me away, trying to get it to work, and the part where it crashed my computer (BSOD TERROR) was kinda confusing too.

snayk responds:

Yeah, I realized as well that the bigger drums come in a little late, but after listening to it for a few times, I feel it was the right move. Thanks for the review!

Congrats on getting Fruity Loops -- it's a great program. When I first started using Fruity Loops, the first thing I did was make about 10 songs completely out of premade loops and samples. I think most people do that at some point, and I don't think it's a bad thing to do, either. Experimentation is key when it comes to learning FL (just don't submit songs made with stock loops to the AP because they aren't original work).

After that I started making music the real way; that is, I stopped simply throwing loops together and I started composing with Fruity Loops' instruments. You can hear that stuff at the bottom of my audio list; insomniac is the first song I ever made in FL.

I use a ton of VSTs. There are lots of great free ones out there, but as an essential step in expanding your FL boundaries, you will need some new VSTs.

I feel like I'm just rambling now, so I'll bring this to a stop.

I recommend reading through the Audio Forum's sticky; it has a lot of useful links and information that could help you out:
