This ones also going on the album....
idk what else to say....



I love the sounds! Also, it seems more like a compilation of several different tracks. Love the transitions as well.

just smooth the edges

using fades will keep the sweet background buzz from overpowering (except on the beats you want it to, of course). and tweaking the properties of those synths to make each track stand out in it's own way. then even when they all hit the same beat, they build instead of cancelling out.
and more voice so the transition feels natural. a fadein for the jump tracks would fill out a few more seconds and let you showcase each track in it's own few beats before putting it all together.

too much going on

the song has way too much going on. you need to open up the mix a little and work n eq and compression.the snare seems out of place a little. the leads and hook need to be changed completly try using some sor tof plucked synth .

don't take this the wrong way but i ask everyone, did you play any of the instruments (midi, guitar etc...) or was this all computer generated

People find this review helpful!


Some recomendations I have:

You are using a lot of preset instruments, I can't name them off the top of my head, but I can hear them. Try to make your own unique ones. Even if it's just a little tweak, those can make a large difference.

1:30, or around that area, where the bass and synths and drums and EVERYTHING were going at once... That seemed a little too crowded.

If I think I heard what the mircosoft sam said correctly. Ya could definitely take that out...

Now, for some positive feedback:

The song was really well put together, aside from a couple spots sounding a little crowded, this had a good vibe to it.

It had an awesome opening, I wouldn't change anything with it. (Other then unique synths maybe?)

The beat in this is totally what made the song. It was so in your face, random, fast-paced, groovy. All things I like in a drum beat.

You had a good use of effects, They almost perfected your transitions.

Overall a 9/10 and a 5/5 from me. (Downloaded too)

Nice job with this! I'd like to hear more like this, recommend a few songs that you might have made in the past that sound something like this?

dj-Jo responds:

ok, uhhh Thanks very much for the review!
And yeah, I did over some of the preset fills
And the words in the song said, JUMP!
Then it turned Jumpstyle
If you heard the bassdrum, it had that kind of style to it.
Now, it looks like you like doom, so, you know the game left 4 dead?
Well, I made a song using the horde sounds. Its called Raving Zombies
I think you'll like it.
Keep playing doom
Because I somtimes do!
