This is my first attempt at using Reason.
for some reason when converting this to mp3, the bass track that starts out at the beginning sounds shitty through a couple sections. I was trying to do a kind of 8-bit style thing with this. I played this for a few people and they said it was too slow, but when I sped it up it sounded shittier to me. I think it could also use a better drum loop. But overall, as a first attempt at using such a complicated program I am pretty proud of myself.

A nice, steady beat. The kind of thing you hear during a talking scene in a video game...
I'm gonna download this. Don't be surprised if you hear it in an animation anytime soon.

Not bad for your first time.

You really do a good job of making it a 8-bit style video game song, and I can imagine this being in some pretty cool game here on Newgrounds. The only thing I think needs improvement is the leading synth. Try tuning it down a little bit more and also try a different sound and/or pattern that way it won't sound quite the same.

Otherwise, this song is pretty cool. Good job.
4/5 & 9/10

Sounds pretty good, abeit slow

Reminds me almost of Amiga music except slower. Normally, I actually like video game songs that are a bit slower, but this is a bit too slow. This would sounds great a lot faster. But otherwise, I love the beats, I would like to hear this in an adventure game.

I've tried speeding it up and I really don't like it. enough people have suggested it though so I'll probably upload a faster slightly remixed version. I would really like to see this used in something as well. Thanks for the review.

Nice, but slow. ;)

I think your friends where right. This could be a bit faster than it is now. But you achieved your goal in creating a 8-bit styled song. Not only because the instruments all sound like what you can hear on an 8 bit console, but the whole song creates a very 8-bittish atmosphere. It's hard to explain but when I started I instantly thought of 8 bit video games. :)

I'll try and make faster songs in the future. I'm really glad to know that I got the 8-bit style down, I wasn't quite sure, so I'm really thankful to hear that. thank you.

Not too bad at all.

I really see something like this being used in an old RPG style game. Just one of those cheesy ones with a terribly generic story line on an old system that you couldn't quite save for yet. :P

Has a very video game type feel to it. Sounds to me like it would make very good background for music. I didn't exactly like how long you had the noise going on in the end. I think it lasted a little bit too long and sounded drawn out. Other than that not bad at all.

Silent-G responds:

it would be awesome to see this used in something, even if it were cheesy and terribly generic. I held the last note at the end for that long because if you listen closely, another sound starts to fade in a bit, and I couldn't figure out how to get it to do that without holding it for so long. thank you for the review.
