This is a song about what happens when you lose your video game. It sounds sad and melancholy - yet you always know there's a restart button.

Very nice soft piece

I really like the calamity and surrealism in this track. I almost think of when I was a widdle kid having cotton candy and dreaming of unicorns and rainbows. Every sound in the song almost has a purpose, like those little blips in the background. Everything falls upon the other with a good sense of unity. Kudos, I'm not normally into soft and mellow tracks, but this one is really beautiful to hear.

Xenoscape responds:

calamity and surrealism seems to be a pretty good way to describe it! I'm sometimes much better with the music than the words to describe it so thank you.


you, sir, are good at this. this song has the clean, well produced sound that i've been trying to hone in on for the past year.

Xenoscape responds:

well heck...that's mighty nice of you to say...

I could say it's the result of a special formula or a rigorous routine, but i guess sometimes things just come together.

Great Stuff

Noticed that you actually really know your shit about music technology while I was browsing the forums and decided too see what you could do with all the knowledge. Needless to say I was not disappointed. Simple but effective melody that flows nicely. The mixing is fantastic, very full sound and the drums maintain their impact even with the 'wall of sound' generated byt the pads (something I haven't got the hang of yet).

I think there's maybe a few synth sounds that are a little simplistic and some experimentation with FM or phase modulation synthesis could be of benefit. I tend to think that a lot, though because all I do is mess around and experiment without actually getting any tangible results, but anyway...

I'm giving it a 9 so I can give the next one a 10.

Xenoscape responds:

thanks man! music is like my addiction. I guess that's why I have a comment for most topics, it's seems like I've been there.

audio engineering is my favorite subject though...


I agree with most of the other reviewers that it is extremely dreamlike. What did you use to make this? Please tell me!!;D

Xenoscape responds:

i used my secwet wecipie...

I used tons of stuff... uh here goes:
BR404 (multiple instances), Absynth 3, Dimension Pro, Reaktor 5 (multiple instances), Reason 3.0, Astralis BabyBion, JBM GoodGM (multiple instances), and tons of eq/compression/saturation/convolution /panning/enhancement plugins.


Well done man, hope to see more work from you. This song flows very well which is a huge factor to me, and it is also very smooth, almost dreamlike, i can see like a slowmo colab of video game fails and the ending scene being a guy hitting the reset. keep it up. Peace and love

Xenoscape responds:

i like your name, sweet. I tend to do well making those very dreamlike songs.
