lol nice :D
I dunno why everyone says it's not so good... i mean i can see what they mean but it's a decent song and plus it's ken so... yay :>
I have some actual advice for you this time...
Note: THERE IS NO MALICE AT ALL IN THIS! I HAVE MATURED AND AM NO LONGER GOING TO BE A COMPLETE DICK. WHEN I REVIEW I WILL PROVIDE ADVICE AS WELL AS SUBTLY TRASH THIS SONG.
I feel that I have the knowledge to help you improve because this knowledge got me to improve and now I'm signed.
1. Actually REMIX the song. You cant just use midis. I used to do that, and i sucked. I don't anymore, so i don't suck. Even if you "never do midi-mp3 remixes" if you just put synths where the regular instruments should be, thats called a midi remix. It's a remix that SOUNDS LIKE IT USED TO BE A MIDI. Also just keeping the song as it used to be note-wise is NOT REMIXING. add an intro, backing melody, actual techno shit into it. Just putting sytrus in doesn't make it good.
2. Ok this one is the most obvious. Fuckin Sytrus, man. If your not making your own synths, DO NOT USE SYTRUS. as powerful a synthesizer as it is, the presets suck. you can get some righteous squares and lines with Sytrus IF YOU MAKE THEM YOURSELF. THE PRESETS ARE OVERUSED. At least download another vst like nexus or z3ta+ (don't use Helix its mine you can't have it!) or learn how to make your own synths then even MIDI remixes will sound godly.
3. WAAAAY to simple. And don't give me that "I like to stick to the original," or "I like to keep it simple" shit. I used to say that. Your lying to yourself because you don't wanna try harder. Learn to use automations. Then use automations. Use fucking lots of them. Use fx. Add your own flair to the song so they say "this is a fuckin HappyFace remix!" and not "Ugh, this is a fuckin HAPPYFACE REMIX..." Your songs will sound WORLDS better if you use better drums, as well. Download House Essentials or Vengeance, and layer your drums, and eq that shit to make 4 or 5 generic kicks sound like 1 boss bass. do the same with synths (not sytrus) and do the same with EVERYTHING ELSE MANG.
4 That wall of static. Don't ever push the reviewer off. and call it "resonance." Because it's not resonance. ITS STATIC. AND IT HURTS YOUR EARS. Master your songs better. Your mastering is utter crap. I can't be nice here because mastering is something you have to learn the hard way on your own. It took me three years to get where i am with mastering. If you wanna make music, its gotta sound good.
5 This is a review of EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR SONGS. THEY ALL SOUND LIKE THIS.
I know this is an extremely harsh review. But i was gonna be nice until i saw the reviews you left on some other songs calling them out because they "used sytrus presets" and shit like that. YOU DO IT TOO. And don't hate on me, i'm just speakin the truth. Don't come to my music and 0-bomb it. Because i voted this a 4. i just left a review explaining why i SHOULD have voted 2. You act like you know it all, but this is what you sound like.
Your welcome for helping you!
Fact remains: You're still a dick even after saying "THERE IS NO MALICE AT ALL IN THIS! I HAVE MATURED AND AM NO LONGER GOING TO BE A COMPLETE DICK."
Here's the solution: Stop reviewing my stuff, I'll stop reviewing yours, and we'll leave it at that. That's the mature thing to do.
Have a nice day,
I think the song is very nice, it still had the original beat in it i dont see why the others didn't enjoy it i like it very much. 5/5 10/10
Haha thanks man, glad you enjoyed it :D
It's kind of like an ocean of static with that synth, but the drum and bass instruments were good.
I still don't see what you guys are talking about...
the lead is a mixture between a Gold Saw and A Square Wave. The rhythm instrument is also a saw, so yes there is going to be lots of resonance... That's the point... Can you still make out the different parts of the song? Yes, you can, so I have no idea what you are complaining about...
sounded blurry with static put in, fix that maybe? otherwise its a good song, build on it.
Static? Hm... Not sure what you mean by that... you may mean the Saws I used, and that's called resonance.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
