-F#minor is the only chord on this track.
-lead part is a raw saw synth beefed up with phaser, flanger, chorus, and unison effects
-the lead part was improvised over the beat and the automation of the effects was done afterwords
-the track was created in Reason
-please leave comments!

Nice introduction; you've got a pretty nice beat set up by the drums, and you've covered all the main frequencies by about the 5th second, which is always cool to see. We like balance in a song.

For an improvised line, the lead synth is pretty cool; there's a lot of different melodies in there and even some really cool dissonances as well, in parts. The automations also work really well to keep the track feeling varied; variation is definitely one of those things you need in a song like this, because the backing accompaniment doesn't change, so the lead has to do something pretty spectacular to hold the attention, which it essentially does.

In terms of improvement, you could maybe think about having breaks in the background beat to go into slower sections with just the synth, or just changing up the beat a little. And maybe even add a vocalist in, even? It's the kind of song that could support something like that, definitely.

While the improv was cool, I think five and a half minutes of the same beat was a touch on the long side, but not so much so that it got boring. So nice work, overall, it definitely got pretty trippy in places. Keep it up.

Get me some Kool-Aid

-I enjoyed listening to this. I had to go over it three times before I could even review it. It's quite lengthy which makes it a tad bit difficult to review.

-That being said even though I listened to it repeatedly it didn't get boring or repetitive. This is what really suprised me since most long songs get repetitive at some points. Even using the same chord you put enough dimension into it with complicated multi-layer work.

-Reason is an expensive audio program and it really shows in some of your work. Did you use Reason 4 or an older model?

MixyRecords responds:

Thanks, I appreciate you taking time to review. I'm glad I was able to make the song intresting enough. That was my goal with all the effects.

I used Reason 3 but I got it for free because a producer friend I know hooked me up.

Again i appreciate the review

raw

I imagine the Kool Aid mascot bouncing down the street like a juggernaut destroying everything. The melody was pleasing and egyptian-like sounding in some parts. Reminded me somehow of groups like Gorillaz, it had a freeform feel to it also. Only complain is that it could have been shorter but still it was pretty creative. (the ending was somehow funny for me.)


MixyRecords responds:

Yeah you're right. I Hadn't realized how long it really was until afterwords. haha i like your visual for the song. Thanks for listening and reviewing. I appreciate it!!

Dude! this has got a pretty awesome beat to it, a little repetitive, not that much tho. I like how you only used F# minor, its sounds pretty awesome! Got my download! 10/10 5/5.
