Here's my (1st) entry for the Monthly Audio Contest (MAC).
The theme this month is Kid songs :-)
Please rate & review!


Nice job!

I really like the strings you got here, makes it sound very 'playable'. I can tell where the concept "Kid" songs comes out of this. Nice instrument and vst choices, really enjoyed it, and didn't seem repetitive to me :D Nice job with the drums also, I am not very good at varying that up ;)



FairSquare responds:

Thanks man!

FairSquare responds:

Haha, yeah. I try to keep variation in my music :-)
Thanks for your review, i really appreciate it!

FairSquare responds:

I hope your right and thanks for the review! :D


Wow, dude. This is way better than my entry ;) Very well written and executed! If you don't mind me asking, which VSTs did you use for this?

FairSquare responds:

Thanks, i'll check your entry too :-)
I used Garritan Personal Orchestra, Nexus and Addictive Drums to make this.
Thanks for your review!


Oh my goodness, it sounds so cute! :D:D:D
I love the pizzing arps at the beginning.
It sounds nice and kiddish; it actually reminded me of a TV show's kind of theme tune and having like little 3-8 year olds running around.
The wind instrument gave it a bit of a more exotic sound, but nicely matched anyway.
I think there's one instrument that is just too loud, though. I dunno..I know fuzzy is really bad, but all the instruments sounded like each one was the main melody line--and that's the problem, in a way--or puzzle, I should say. Try to make each lovely melody/harmony fit in right and dynamically master the whole piece. As in, each instrument was very clear and loud, but more clear, anyway, and so it forces you to pay attention to each and every one of the melodies, which gave my brain a headache and wouldn't let me enjoy the song in piece! So half my brain is going, "Yay!! ^^ This is soo cuteee!!! ^^^^^^^^^" and the other is going "okay, analyze this instrument's lines. okay... now the other. hmm..."
I know that's just me, but there was nothing to figure out in this piece. It all just came and squashed in my face whatever was there (in the funnest way possible :P). Basically, make something more subtle. Subtler... (word..?):P YEah.
So basically that absolute clarity sometimes destroys the sound of a song. I really only noticed when that last instrument came in and how everything was happening at the same time.. AH! YEah, I got the word! :D Busy.
It got too busy at some points. THERE!! ..arrTGGHGH!!! That was a much simple way of saying it.. lol :P
But I have noticed that pattern in a lot of your music (I tend to do the exact same thing, but I'm working on it! xD *cough* "Alt..you're a damn hypocrite!!") , though every time you call down, I hear more and more improvements. :D There is no denying your quick composition-learning-ability..thing! :D
Because really everything about your music is so diverse and wonderful. I am glad to keep on hearing more and more from you! :D:D

FairSquare responds:

Man, i'm so happy with this review, but at the same time i'm not. That's not because your review isn't awesome, but it's because i want to respond to your review and that is so hard! My response can never be as awesome as your review.
I mean, look at the lenght and the advices and the.. the AWESOMENESS!
Well, there's only one thing left to say now...
Thanks! Thanks for this and the other incredible reviews that you have given me!
5/5 to this review.
