Alright everyone! This is my first project in quite a long while. After a solid month of working on this, I really want to know what the Newgrounds community thinks, because I certainly consider this my best work to date. I spent many hours mixing it to try and get it it to that "professional" level as mixing has been quite a sore spot for me for a while. I also started implementing automations using the LFO window, which I never knew how to do. Please give me some feedback, it would be much appreciated.

It had great quality, thanks to your amazing mixing of the track.

It had a fairly good structure

It had amazing percussion

It had sweet melodies

It had good FX

It is one of those songs you cant find anything wrong with.

Great job!

Oh my god, I'm so relieved that you think the mixing quality is good. That was like my number one goal with this song. I'm glad you liked the percussion. It took quite a long while getting those tones. I also love the melodies, so I'm glad you do too. Thanks so much for your review, and thanks for listening! I'm glad you enjoyed. You may like some of my other pieces too. Have a listen if you like.

Really nice

Had some great percussion samples in there, but it got a little repetitive after awhile, but then your synths and other sounds were really nice, overall really good.
What I would fix/ add/ change:
-Add more layers in there, like a pad or something gated.
-Try using a different bass in there, and make it stronger.
-Make the kick stronger, and change up your beat every now and then.
Overall though, really great work!
Keep it up!

Check out some of my stuff please!

Hey man, thank you for the review! Yeah, I spent a very long time mixing the drums. I wanted to make them perfect. Most of the changes in the drums were in the closed hi hats, which change frequently throughout the beginning of the song. Other than that, you're right, they are fairly repetitive, but I wanted a simple beat for this song.

I was debating adding a pad, but I wasn't sure what I would have it do. I also didn't want to clutter this song up. I have a gated effect at 2:14.

The bass in all my songs is consistently "too high" so I wanted to make something that was moderate this time around. I'm also confused by what you mean when you stronger. Does that mean louder? Deeper? More overdrive?

I was surprised when you suggested making the kick stronger! I thought the kick was just right. These are our opinions however.

I think I was just trying to make this song perfect mixing-wise because that is the hardest part of creating a piece for me. I've always had trouble with it, so I was really trying to get better at it with this song. I thank you for the good review though, and thanks for listening!
