Review: Star Shout
First off, sorry it took so long to review this: my college network has Newgrounds on its block list. I am on break now at home.
I really love the start. You really show a lot of attention to the fine details in this piece. That is a sign that you are on the track to do some really great stuff. I notice you used the piano too. I really like a good piano in a techno song. Kudos for that. I like what you've done with it. You really used good synths too. This is a real step up for you.
It was a pleasure to listen to this piece. It was dynamic enough that I didn't get bored listening too it because it changed often, although there were a few repetitive parts. But techno by nature is very repetitive. You did some phenomenal work on this one.
I totally love your intro. What did you use to mod your saws throughout the song? Whatever you did it was really effective!
The only thing I think that needs improvement was adding some power to your drums, but that's already been mentioned.
Not enough power!
Needs some more power as far the beats and bass go. The beats didn't kick it with me, even though the melody was pretty damn awesome. Its good, don't get me wrong, but beats are the blood of Techno/Trance music, and you are lacking a little bit in that department.
My advice? Spend some time making some purely drum beat songs, for the sake of practice if nothing else. You'll get it eventually.
whats the name of the main melody?
i love intro melody, whats the sound called?
sytrus-slightly modded platinum saw. i'd also recommend using hypersaw and taking some of the detune off. And Thanks!!! wait intro is done using conqueror.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
