I'm practicing with my 555 sampler... let me know if it sounds too.... whatever.



I love the beginning, although I'll agree with Cymbal that the beats were a little off the first third or so, but the idea you were aiming for is worth extending this by another two or three minutes. Awesome work overall, despite a few hiccups.
9, 5, fav. x3

I like the ambient touch, but

Some stuff irked a little bit.
Some of the programed drums were a little off time. I know you were probably making the drums kinda off time and a little amen ambient type glitchy, but some of them worked and some of them didnt. The beats were awesome and EQ'd nicely but sometimes the use of cymbals was a little too much to bear. Since it happened a bunch of times i gave you an 8.

Now onto the good.
This is an extremely relaxing track, The drums that didn't go overboard were very smooth. I would suggest those parts where you had tons of cymbal sounds lined up in a row replacing them with panning clicks and low snares and hi hat. The beats were very interesting and i give you a definite thumbs up for that. It is basically what kept my attention to the song and made me write a review. I especially when you dropped just a simple hip hop beat here and there, it definitely gave me a nice head bop moment. i also the nice slight pauses you had near the beginning.

The actual music:
I love the simplicity and easy touch. When you started harmonizing the chimes it really smoothed out the track and even though you continued the same line alot it really kept it placid. The little mono-synth leads were also perfect and flowed VERY nicely. My favorite part was at around 1:30 where you meshed the lines together and eventually broke it apart again to go into the fade out ending.

Personally if i was working on this track i would repair some the drums and even extend it. For some odd reason i feel a distant ambient soulful saxophone would really put a great spin on this track.

All in all i really do like this track. you get a 5 from me because this deserves a higher score. Normally i would have given it a 4.
(Dont let the zero bombers get you down).

But seriously awesome work. I really hope you work some more on this track because it has so potential to be amazing.

hey thanks for the review! I'm going to redo most of the drum beats, and practice syncing up things better. I recorded this on the fly composing as I went... each section of beat had it's own button assignment as well as each section of the music. This is my first attempt, I will definitely keep working on it. I was really depressed after getting 0 bombed. Thanks again.
