The bass

Ok i think the bass needs to be there the whole time, or at least a couple of seconds after the beginning. The repetitiveness of the synthesizer could be a good thing if the far-away echo sounds like something solid. Personally, I think the drums should have a little bit more of a punch... a deeper pitch. At the end of your song I noticed a change in the bass-like a different pattern. Keep that going, or at least make the pattern closer to the middle. Remember-good songs have beginnings, middles, and ends. Please don't make an end that doesn't land on a C-that is very very important.

NessbeatsFox is right-not bad for a WIP.

yeah I agree, the bass could be in there earlier.

and about the song's end... this is just a preview, it doesnt really have an ending yet. But yeah, thanks!

thanks for all of your advice!

Really repetitive

I'm not a huge fan of the opening pad. The synth that comes fades in at the beginning is very repetitive to the point it becomes very monotonous. The drums are okay, but they too are very plain and as a listener I start to lose interest in them.

I don't hear any transitions at all. It's just the same sounds over and over and over. I'm waiting for a bass to kick in, and it finally does at 1:36. In my honest opinion, 1:36 is way too long to wait for a bass in this style of music. The bass should help define the song, not hide away and only show up just to show up.

The bass itself is very soft and hard to interpret, and what I can hear just sounds too "midi-ish". Try changing to bass to something with more of a punch and bring it in sooner to help compliment the song.

Overall though, not bad for a WIP. Keep working on it! I'd love to hear it when it's finished.

JebusAndTheHolyYoses responds:

Thank you very much for the honest opinions!
Your constructive criticisms are very much appreciated. This is just a sample, the full song will be different. But thanks a lot for all of your suggestions, and I will try to see what I can do!

Thanks again for all the detail in your review, it will be very VERY helpful!
