Sounds like some grand SuperMario Games x]
Hey there MeskySaber...thank you for your review and video game music comment and compliment...some of the new WII and XBOX Mario game music is incredible...Mario Galaxy is pretty cool....unreal when you have to play your character upside down....anyway thanks and sorry for the long delay in answering.
Pretty good but the drums overpower most of the harmonies. Later on in the song the harpsichord is a bit clangy. It needs a little more bass, and some volume tweaks. Nice layering though. Just needs a few more things to smoothen it out.
Thanks again for the review. As written above...this was originally placed as three separate songs. They all did well individually and it was time to put it together.
Definitely mastered too heavily. At first anyway. The second section has much more headroom and is nicer to listen to but the vocals in the third seem to suck all the headroom right out of the mix again.
The percussion feels awfully thin, the kick and snare are especially weak and GM sounding and fall well below the volume of the string sections and vocals when the attack should be well above them. There's no stereo imaging either so they feel even more flat and inhuman.
It sounds and feels like you've taken three different audio files and crossfaded them instead of taking the three pieces and creating thoughtful transitions. Compositionally the three are good and they're thematically similar but they need something more to tie them together. In fact if you got these three audio files which were already mastered and then put them together and mastered them all over again that would make for a pretty bad lack of headroom.
As three seperate tracks the composition and arrangement in each is fairly good. The way you've attempted to turn them into one track isn't working for me and there's a lot of things I don't like about the mix in general, some of which might just come down to a difference in how we work.
Isn't it great what an old-fashioned tape-recorder and aux cord direct to the computer audio import can achieve.
this song is pretty awesome
these songs seem like good video game themes but i also noticed you might have added a little too much treble on the first one and the sync got a little lose at some points but on top of that these are good themes
Hey Krssvr....great to hear from you. I caught and voted on your last song entry. I am still banned from the comment area though....Thanks for the review and score. Peace Yo-EMUZIN
