Very nice!

Wow, this really reminds me of Moby, what with the 808-ish drums and the flowing pads. Very intricate, lots of things going on.

What I think brings this piece down is the repetition...that main pluck just gets on my nerves after a while. Change things up a bit, go for a different chord progression, SOMETHING.

Besides the repetitiveness of the chords and the main pluck, it sounds great. I love the drums and the layers, although near the end I think you could have even more stuff going on in the stereo spectrum, it seems too mono to me.

Good job!

TUNEIT responds:

Oh, thanks for the great review, i can really use this.
I haven't noticed the mono thing you were talking about.

Well, i might make some sounds shift from left to right speaker or something in my upcoming projects then.



Great job with building the atmosphere! Those ambient drums are a perfect choice for this genre. Even if it is repetitive, most ambient songs do tend to play the same thing over and over in order to maintain a good atmosphere, kind of like trance music in my opinion. The only problem with this song is probably the energy, I mean it could sound like a neverending mix, but what I think you could have done was taking that bell like arp playing constantly over while moving down or up octave or something and then let the master volume fade out, that way it even has that atmosphere/effect or whatever you like to call it even after you listen to the song. These might not be the best suggestions, but it's hard to critique an actual good song :).


5/5 3.66 / 5.00 (+ 0.21)

Do you mind checking out my song Midnight Illusion?

TUNEIT responds:

Thank you very much, maybe it's not a half bad idea about tat with the bell arp.
But i don't know if it will make it too powerful.

Well, i will keep it like this. (I will maybe do a remak or another version of this song later on)

Thank you very much. I will check your song out right now.



.... TUNEIT....

I must say.. u hit the top here.. really the bet i've heard from you! The intro effects were so extremly wellplaced, and they just gave this uniqe athmosphere. The chord progression was really nice, and the song overall, made me feel warm and relaxed.

Thanks for this piece mate :)


TUNEIT responds:

I'm the one who's saying "thanks", this review means a lot to me.
I mean you're a great musician, and i'm proud to be your friend :3
Haven't got such a great compliment from you in a long time, so i'm glad you took the time and wrote this review to me.
Glad you like it.

Yet again, thanks mate :)

Sweet soothing ambience

An excellent, calming song. I really believe it is outstanding despite being quiet and subtle. Even though it is repetitive, it is something you can listen to over and over and still like it. I also think it'd make excellent background music... For something that would be of the ambient kind of atmosphere.

I dunno whether you've made something like this before, but if you haven't I would love to hear some more because this is great.

TUNEIT responds:

Thank you very much.
The idea was to make it repetitive but still, you can listen to it over and over again, so my goal is completed.

Well, I've made Ambient before, but never anything like this, so thank you.
There will probably be more like this on the list of tracks i've made in the very near future :3

Thank you once again.
