While trying to learn as much as I possibly can about FL Studio, I had to constantly try to get the structure down on this song. Originally the song was only going to be what you hear at about 3 mins in, but it already sounded like a great ending of a song, so what do I end it with that could beat what I already have? I personally couldn't think of anything lol, so I needed a beginning. While searching for ideas and new sounds I found some of the Sytrus packs and made two lines with those, they worked very well and saved me some time (probably another 2 weeks, I'm slow). I need to avoid abusing them though, so I'll need to think about some other ideas.

Please let me know what I can improve upon, and how to do it if you can. This is my first full song, so I'm not expecting much praise, just need advice from you folks. Thanks!

Your getting better at this!

Pretty soon your music will be overtaking mine lol! ¬¬ :P

Keep it up.

I like this piece because of its strong beat, and friendly wobbling tune.

McPhearson responds:

Thank you sir! The beat sounded much better on my headphones, I need to start using speakers more often so I can tell what it will sound like for everyone else, but I'm happy you like it!

Its Ok

I found the bass drum single beat got monotunous & it was a relief when it stopped. For your frst try I liked this piece. When the single repetitive drum starts up again it is ok for a short bit & then it starts to overpower everything else.
So nice job on this & sorry if my personal opinion on the drums ticks you off.

McPhearson responds:

That's alright, I have a single track mind and my focus was making sure I could get an organized piece together, build up the song properly and end it dramatically. Your comment is a relief for me if that is the main issue and not the other sounds.

I appreciate it greatly, better to know what I'm doing wrong rather than get a bad score and not know why!

Good Start

For your first full song its pretty good. The drums sound a little muffled but thats just nit-picking. Hey at 1:53 what sound from sytrus is that i like the sound of it

McPhearson responds:

I found it in Plugin Presets-Generators-Sytrus-Bass Plunk. I changed the sound a little while messing with the knobs in Sytrus during my learning endeavors lol. I am using FL 5, I don't know if the newer versions will have it in the same place.

I agree the drums do sound muffled, actually the whole song sounds muffled since I uploaded it at 48khz. I didn't want to disobey the rules since the upload on Newgrounds states it wants 44.1, but I couldn't get 44.1 exact or at least I don't know how to do it...

Thank you for your response!
