This is actually older than my track "Charming Embrace," however I did not submit it for some reason. This track was made after listening to some Final Fantasy Music and is one of my few attempts at a sound like Nobuo Uematsu. I think its a "cute" track, and I hope you like it :-)

Please listen to Charming Embrace if you like this track, because I would really like to know if I should pursue music production in THIS style of music, or a more classical\DNB style of music.

Thanks for any comments\criticism :-)

Pandora-Tranquil responds:

Exactly what I was going for :-) Thank you

I loove this one

That is great, one of your best yes! Piano always wins me for a start and the soft synth stabs and sfx were damn good, nicely placed. I noticed a seashore sound effect that you created! I did something similar once so that was cool =D. Those unassuming drums really help it along and everything is so dynamic. and the melodies are great. Nice nice nice! Thanks a load for uploading this man

Pandora-Tranquil responds:

Great review. I am glad you liked it :-)
I guess you got what I was going for haha.
Drums could be a bit better and there is a slight error in some of the melodies in the later part of the song, with the padding. But other than that I am proud of it.


It really has a calm settling to it, while still having some sort of sense of going somewhere. This and Charming Embrace really sound like they go hand in hand together. I love them.

Pandora-Tranquil responds:

Thank you! And thanks for listening to both! :-)

Real nice.

Gentle and calming whilst still retaining pace and structure. Grows nicely with a diverse range of sounds, textures and transition effects.

Only criticism is that some of the drawn out drone notes clash a tiny bit at times, maybe reconsider note choice?

As for your production aesthetic; I would say go ahead with this type of thing, though from what I have seen of the audio portal so far; It seems that hip-hop and dnb are favoured. If you want to be popular within the NG Audio portal, go for the DNB.
But If you want to be successful in the real world carry on doing what you want to be doing which from what I gather is this style. You do it well, so keep on going.

Pandora-Tranquil responds:

Thank you for the very intelligent review! I will definitely keep that in mind! And I will most likely pursue my own style :-)

Thanks for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review.
And I agree about the notes clashing, its because I did not really finish the song, I left a pad in which I would have removed if I finished the song entirely.
