This is awesome, man! Digital duck is an artist. Everything he creates is beatiful and shows what is good about life. I am a big fan of you,Digital duck. I like al of your songs so far. And this song sounds realy good. Everyone should download it now!
Why bother reading this review? I mean..It's Digital duck,.

DigitalDuck responds:

Thanks for the fandom, but don't go overboard!

It has it's positive ways..

Well I agree with Zaine, this indeed sounds just like an midi file, better instrument samples are not bad idea, and one really big thing that is missing is Percussion! Percussion on these are one of those most important sections of my mind, listener can more easily listen song, because there is going simple percussion and that's the easiest way to follow song, same on there other instruments combined with percussion is the best thing on these really.

Well I don't blame for using straight midi, I use it too sometimes, but mostly I just borrow main melody, backups and bass and add my own things on it, and there's it, but I don't blame yo for using midi file to do this, (If you used of course)

Just keep it going! More you make, more you learn to do =) Keep going!!

DigitalDuck responds:

As I said below, I started with a MIDI, but I did add my own things and changed a lot of things too.

I tend to avoid percussion, mainly because I'm not good at it. I will keep these comments in mind, and thanks for the review!

VST Plugins killed the maestro...

First, I love japanese music, especialy classical arrangements. I don't know if you played the song on your own, but it sounds for me like you used a midi file and simply added plugins to the tracks.

And I have to say, the quality of the instruments isn't very good. I like the piano, but the clarinet and the strings are sounding very similar to the original sound of a midi file, means - not very realistic.

But since it's composed by a japanese musician and I like the melody, I give you 5 stars.

DigitalDuck responds:

That's fair enough. I started with a MIDI, but changed instruments, velocities, arranged everything in different parts, and did quite a few things in Mixcraft. I do have more realistic sounding strings, but after trying various arrangements, I couldn't get them to sound good. Still, thanks for the review!
