This is my third full song here, and I am still looking for comments on all my songs.

This one was made in FL9 with Galactix, Vanguard, VCE 1,2, and 3 , and lots of automation loops.

Nice opening melody; it's pretty long, although essentially is the same thing repeated twice; you probably could avoid repetition by just changing a note in the second half of the melody and making the loop feel twice as long.

There's a nice bunch of synths, though it sounds like it gets a lot quieter 1:00-1:12 for no reason; as if you just turned the volume knob down a little, which was a little weird. It was probably done to keep up the variety? But it just sounds like an accident, to be frank. As well as that, by 1:30 the initial melody did feel quite stale. If you're going to carry a melody for that long without any pause, you need to change the backing synth up a lot more, or change the synth itself, just to keep the variety up more. You do that at around the 2 minute mark, but as you've already have 120 seconds of the same thing, it feels drag-y even if it is relatively interesting when compared to the rest of the track.

An easy way to fix this would be to have a second melody, so you could change between the two and have different sections of the song. Another could be to have a slower, more ambient section with pad synths, or taking out and putting in more synths in transitions. For a third submission, this is alright. But you still have to get variety down, in the melodic or structural way (maybe even both), before your tracks can start getting really polished. Keep it up, though.

Too repetitive

-Not bad for a third submission since you are just getting into the groove of making audio and learning what people like and how to make things sound better.

-The overall melody played throughout nicely but started to feel a little stale towards the end since you put almost no variation throughout. About 2:05 to 2:25 was a little different from the rest of the song but you need to do more than that.

-The song didn't have enough variation to me and lowering the volume or speeding up the melody in one or two parts just isn't going to cut it in the originality department. It just doesn't become interesting enough to hold the listener throughout the entire song if it's not going to have enough variety.

-I could be wrong but it just seems like you used a generic drum sample throughout since it was just really really basic in structure. Just a simple cymbal repetition.

-Overall like I said at the beginning it's not bad for a third submission but you still need to work on the variety and dynamics in the song to make it more interesting.
