A friend sent me an idea he dropped that consisted of part of what you hear in the first four measures. I thought it sounded really awesome and it even came with a cool synth. From the moment I heard it, it sounded like space battle music so I wanted to make it in to that. I really like the outcome, it sounds very much like what I had in mind when I started. All synths are either original or z3ta+ synths.

Once I had pretty much finished composing it, my friend sent me an updated version of the z3ta+ synth that fixed a few issues such as how it previously only allowed oversampling on one z3ta+ voice in the entire song. Rather than duplicating one of the supersaws and fixing some volume issues, I was lazy and decided to just release it like this.

Interesting intro and outro
0:48 sounds nice
snare riff filter effects
no specific melody. This could be seen as a con but since it's videogame music, I see this as a pro.
Better mastering than any other song I've done
good variety

Volume issues
boring percussion
sounds overly busy in some parts
1:50 high notes are too shrill
Looping didn't turn out how I wanted it to

Frankly, the cons for this song are minor (except volume issues) and aren't as many as previous songs. If you vote on this please leave a comment!

I'm sorry, but no. This song has a few isolated good parts, but its ridiculously repetitive and the percussion is horrific. Without a steady rhythm to normalize against, the beat becomes blurred. That said, 1:19 is REALLY cool, but it only lasts for like, 2 measures! The rest of the song is just blurred beyond recognition and has far too much crap going on.

There is no outro and the intro is extremely lacking. The song jumps into the main melody and then stays there the entire song. This never works. The mastering is impressive given simply the fact that you can hear the bass over all the other crap you've managed to fill the song with, but other then that the frequencies levels are completely unbalanced and skewed to the upper and lower ends. The song _feels_ heavily compressed, which is never good.

All you did the entire song was take the melody and go through a bunch of synths. While its a fun exercise, this is anything but ear candy and almost sounds worse then some of your earlier songs simply because its so freaking repetitive. One can argue that stylistically but when your main melody has barely any variation in it in the first place, repeating it over and over for 2 minutes straight is not enjoyable in the least. You've got to have an obvious countermelody or SOMETHING.
