Hellor peoples.

I wanted this track to be really simple, calm and relaxing but with a crisp and fresh feel. Kinda like waking up to a new life.

The track only has one beat, melody bass and one piano melody, but quite a few automations so it stays a little varied but not Overly repetitive.

- 133bpm
- 320kbit
- Vsts: Albino, TAL-Elek7ro, 4Front Piano Module
- Samples: xFer, Vengeance Electro Essentials

Mixed and Mastered, so enjoy and Chillax.

A vibrant piece

So this one was really nice a very vibrant piece a relaxing element of sound here really makes for some nice ideas here the soothing sound is really nice and I like your style here it was a pretty good size too some strong sounds that have the vibrant and soothing feel kind of a relaxing element of sound too my advice for any improvements is make more beautiful music like this one

Make more beautiful music just like this soothing and relaxing piece


Oh my...

This is still awesome.
It's repetitive, but not repetitive where it just goes over and over and over and over and over again. It stays varied, like you said. It's very calming, which I love, and the drum beat is extremely pleasant.

I could see you with a record deal.

AlexCo responds:

:D maybe

Early birds ALWAYS catch the worms

Such a wonderful meoldy from start to finish. My question is will you be creating a longer version of the song? I'd like to see if you can make it just as long as those Daft Punk-type of songs where they can keep the melody going without making it repetitive.

So chilled I felt like I wanted another frozen martini again. Oh, wait- I've run out of it..Might as well relax w/ the music instead.

AlexCo responds:

haha maybe. :3


It's a awesome work of musical art...

Well... not quite..

The kick is at a lack of bass, but for this type of song I'm sure it was intended. If you do follow through with making a more proggy version of this song, I'll be sure to fave and five it.

Anyways I love the plucky lead/synth. I am assuming FL Studio, cause you're using VSTs.

Also I wouldn't mind collabing, if you want to.


AlexCo responds:

Yeah, thanks for the review. Right now I'm having problems with windows so I can't collab right now,

Thanks again


I would have to say that I enjoyed most of the track. The remaster is very pleasing to the ears. This song took me on a slight emotional journey.

Haha cheesy stuff aside, it is a very solid mix. I do have some notes for you though:
-First off, all the instruments sound very clear. Nothing is too trebly or bassy, but the thing that bothered me is that there is almost no sign of the bass frequencies (I'm not sure if that was intentional or not). I just now stumbled on to this track so I have not heard the original master, but I think EQing of the track isolated the bass frequencies. I'm not saying the this is a bad thing either, but I usually prefer "bassiness" to balance out the track. Nonetheless, this is not a major issue.
-Haha 133 is such an odd bpm to choose
-At 1:44 the delayed crash seemed to drift off-beat. Try manipulating the sample to try avoiding processed crashes that already have a fixed BPM on it.
-I like the slight changes that happen in the middle of the mix such as adding the faint melody in the background.
-I also like that the kick drum does not overwhelm the track, showing that you have mixed smartly.

It is a very good piece of music. I am impressed because I do not see much on newgrounds that is worth listening to, but this track is another exception. So I hope to hear more works from you in the future. Keep producing!

Faved and Fived,

AlexCo responds:

:D Thanks alot man!

I had issues with the bass to start with, it was too loud and didn't fit at first, so I lowered the cut off and made it fainter, since I couldn't create one that would fit.

I laughed at the BPM :P You have to be unique... somehow. :P I'm sure its mixable :D

I attempted to fix that crash that you mentioned, adding a delay and manipulating the time-scale but it didn't work I guess.

I'm really grateful you reviewed, I've enjoyed all your tracks and to me, you're one of the handful on this site who really know what they are doing.

Thanks again! :)
