So this is the case; I acquired Fl Studios a little over a year ago, and these couple of songs uploaded today are all from that time. I had to reformat my computer back then and forgot about my "attempts" and thought there were lost. Well turns out that I had a few really old songs on a memory stick and tadaah! :D

I do not expect much from this song, it's okay I guess but nothing really special. But since I found them I thought it would be neat to let my few fans hear my very, very first music attempts.

Let me know if you think any of these songs has potential and let me know if I should try and make a remake of them. :D

Soundz, Mellow Rave, [Smooth Sailing].
Liked the feeling when I first started making it, but when the melody hits in, definetly the wrong "sound" to it, but meh. I know it's not that great, but as said earlier, just let me know what you guys think. ^^
PS. Don't really know why I chose the name to be this, don't really see it anymore. xD


Very good!

I really like this song, you are very talented since this is one of your old songs. Great work again! Does give a sense of euphoria well like dance songs should.

Shoephly responds:

thanks for the praise ^^

And indeed, one of my very, very first things ever made, didn't even know how to automate the cutoff back then xD, the volume going up on the synth at 1:15 is some manual recording :D ! *press record and slowly move the knob up*-

Hmm, i'm starting to think this song "really" is overdue for a remake :)


like i said with one of your other "old" songs you should try and remake them

Shoephly responds:

yea, I agree; the problem for me though is the whole "layout", whenever I am bored and take a look at my older stuff that I found, the whole playlist and stepsequencer and automations are soo cluttered, since these were made when I practically just got a hold of the program. And this confusion usually gets me discouraged to change anything xD.

Once I find the time to really just try and reorganize everything, I'm pretty sure I could make this song extremely good. :)

Thank you for the small push for me to remake it, it'll get there eventually. :)


Pretty good for one of your first musical attempts

I say remake it.
And the melody isn't that off, don't worry. In fact, I don't even think it's off at all.
Seems very Megaman-like.
And if you DO remake it, add more background ambient noises, it seems a bit hollow, if you know what I mean.


Shoephly responds:

Yea, was thinking about making a remake, it has potential.
And yes, I do know what you mean, I didn't really have any pads or strings in the background except for the stuttered pad which is playing throughout the song.

Thanks for the review. ^^
