It's actually pretty good, not really my style of music, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it.
The percussion was one of the best parts of it. Really unique and had a good beat. You aren't usually going to hear bongos in a synth song.
The melody was good although some of the effects you used could have been changed a bit to make it sound a bit smoother. The bass was pretty good but as others said it could use some variation as to how it went with the melody.
The only other suggestion I really have would be to add some more variations on the melody and maybe some more harmonies.
But it was good for a first submission and I couldn't have done it better myself.
btw, its yella from youtube
Could use some improvement.
While this is pretty good (and probably better than most songs I produce), there's still plenty of room for improvement.
The most important thing is probably that the lead generally sounds like a slight variation of the bass throughout most of the song. Bass tracks should generally differ from leads, and enhance them. Nothing complicated, really, and you could probably make some brilliant music by not keeping my advice in mind, but this is the way that I prefer things.
Secondly, the mixing could be slightly improved, and I'm mostly referring to the panning. When there's only one instrument playing, I think it should be panned to the center, otherwise it'll feel all empty and shit. Secondly, using a Stereo Enhancer effect rather than actually panning the track usually gives better results. And finally, bass tracks should be kept in the center of the mix.
However, you did do pretty well with the instrument and percussion selection. I really like the way the lead sounds, and how the bass instrument goes along with it without taking your attention away from the lead. The percussion was also pretty unique, as most people just use regular kicks, snares and hihats rather than bongo drums (or whatever you used in this, I can't really tell, but it does sound like bongo's).
Keep at it, and you'll eventually produce some really great things.
I'll definitely keep these in mind, thank you.

It seems that that FL9 really IS pretty advanced.
Like the feel to it, it's got a bit of a new-age jungle feel to the whole affair. Like the square synths in how they change between major and minor thirds. I know these are just demo sounds, but gosh damn they sound good, better than what I usually associate with FL (ie like Soulja Boi).
Though the song is in a few places simplistic, I never feel that that is a detriment to anything.
In short, it's nicely crafted.
To be honest, there wasn't too much a difference in FL9 to FL8, just one new synth (Ogun) is all I've seen, which I did use.
Thanks for the review, man.
