Made in about four hours. FL 9 Producers edition. The reese is made from two 3x Osc's that are layered on each other (got that tip from a youtube tutorial :P). You may find the drums familiar because they are made from the drumloop from EC-Midnight.


My review, your song.

Intro with 2 synths, neat start, syncopation and notes all fit.

The bass sound at about 0:14 is playing in a different key, has a lot of dissonant sounds that are unpleasant to the ear.

0:21 plain synth has dissonance either, it sounds like the separate pieces of this were not written with each other in mind for accompaniment.

Drums are alright, somewhat repetitive, and very backgroundish. The crash cymbal needs some reverb and feint delay to work it in better.

1:15 neat tape stop effects.

The little synthy "beowww" sounds are alright, they work in this song.

Ending tape stop and instrument endings are alright, not the strongest ending, but there was a clear ending which is excellent.

Overall song progression is minimal, and the writing has some conflicts in it. Drums could use some diversity, and the overall mix is extraordinarily sloppy, too many of the sounds spill over and distort each other making everything kind of muffled. The use of stereo and panning is not present either making the song sound almost mono.

In FL the easiest way to fix this is to simply send every instrument/sound channel to their own mixer channel and apply the default FL Limiter to them. This will help cap off volume and minimize the spill over effect.

After that if some volume issues are still present, say the bass is overpowering the melody that the plain synth is supposed to carry out (which it frankly is), you can just dip the bass synth's volume down about 10%.

WS you are showing some big steps of improvement in your work but need to continue to spend more time on your works. If you ever need help with anything please don't hesitate to ask.
