My second submission using FL Studio 8. Made with a total of three kick drums along with three types of synthesizers. Reviews and constructive criticism are both welcomed and requested. So pull yourself up a chair, grab your favorite bottle of barbecue sauce and apply liberally.


A good attempt at a hard concept

Although this song is quite repetitive, I don't think it could be structured better any other way in my opinion. A few things you could change about it if you were ever to improve on it would be to fix some of the bass levels in the kick because it gets slightly distorted at times, so it throws off some of the songs flare. Also I'm a huge fan of the sudden symbol crash segments, its kind of awkward. The number one thing I believe that would most improve this song though is instrument choice. The arp range and arrangement is fine, just maybe replace the synth with something a little more smooth sounding for the high pass, and then something with lower volume and rough like your current main synth as the low pass for a background effect. Also maybe a more "standout bass" to give a better flow of direction. Other than that just basic problems like mastering and maybe adding some filter automations. Ha ha I know your very new to FL8, but I thought a detailed review would help you out. So hopefully my nonsense will make sense!

p.s. (if you want to check out my new stuff you might enjoy it, specifically "The Day We Lost," and "Far From the Light." Its a lot better than what you called "Clap the Savior," lolz.)

Thanks for the lengthy review/help. I'm not so good with FL yet, but I'm working on it.


I liked it, and I like barbecue sauce. 5/5 10/10 Keep up the good work

797MHz responds:

Thanks for the review, I appreciate it!

It's OK

The intro felt repetitive for a second, but the drum intro kicked it up a notch... then went down (bad) then became like a "Sonic the Hedgehod" thing in the background. Then I lost track....

So, kicked up and fun, but repetitive, and altogether unexciting or noteworthy.

Heh, I named it that because I wanted barbecue while I was making it. I'm glad you liked it, obviously from the overall score it got, you're about the only one. Thanks for the review, don't forget to check out my other couple of tracks I've done.

Well now...

.... Its sertainly no "Sweet Baby Rays" now is it... =D

797MHz responds:

I prefer Uncle Sam's Barbecue over Sweet Baby Ray's. Thanks for the review!
