A Hip Hop beat I made with FL. Feel free to rap over this one.


I actually don't like this one, i even find it as obnoxious and even a little bit unbearable, it is even possible that if i let it loop running i may be able to give myself a headache, 4 minutes is quite excessive already.

However i don't hate it, there are some parts that i actually can bring myself to like, for example the piano, and the bass has a nice feel at times, and the thing that Keven mentions adds a funny quirk to it.

But fuck it! it is not worthy! my ears are ringing, i-i... fuck it, swearing makes me feel better, nothing personal man, you got some nice reviews and some pretty damn high scores i just can't help but feel that i am missing something here, it may be that very realm which i have been unable to elaborate and tell you about when it comes to music, probably my greatest fault as a reviewer is this shortcoming of mine of not being able to explicit whenever a melody is missing and how it would sound like, likewise this also goes when a melody or note is present it works but i can't pint point it, but this will have to go away without my understanding because i just can't bring myself to listen to this for long enough for me to find the rest of the stars missing on my score, i will just left it be as a victim of my inadequacy, the long message is also part of my recovery i give myself some silence before i pass to the next song, some time to kill this bias.

Uff aight, am better now, i am still giving this 1.5 call it an unfounded revenge if you may, this may be the very first Nietz song that i actually don't like and may even come to hate if i put some will on it XD.

Yes, this piece was awful and out of tune with very dodgy basslines. There are some of these old tracks that I would take down if there were no reviews on them. I feel guilty about deleting tracks when people have been kind enough to leave feedback.

I like that thing.

It appears between 00:08-00:11, 00: 20-00:23, 00:31-00:34, 00:42-00:45, ect...

I like that part.

Anyway it is a great song and you should keep making music.

I like that sound effect, I've used it in a few songs already. Some people will say where is the variation? And I will say, "gulp, there is none... but hey! Isn't the song fun to listen to!" And then when they turn around, I'll run like the fucking wind.


its interesting, kinda sounds hollow and empty, and like it has nowhere to go, just floating around out there. but the drums are nice so a 7

I started with the intention of making something Death Row-esque, but I fucked my sine melody up and my arpeggios spiralled out of all control. When I put FL back on, I'll be going back to this and building up everything new, apart from the drums.

Bass and leads aren't really working together

Ya, I wasn't feeling that combo of bass and lead. Also that high pitched effect was a bit too high. I like the drums, but try putting some reverb on the snare. One final suggestion, try playing around with that arp a bit, try making it either a fair chunk faster or way slower. Just an idea. Good thoughts in here though

Good suggestions. I tried making some snazzy sine melody and it came out a bit sharp and harsh. Also reverberating the drums was on the agenda. Might give the speed thing a try though.
