A Ship to the North

Gentle/soft & soothing song. I agree with previous reviewer that you could give the piano some more variety in dynamics, but my biggest wish would be for a time sig change towards the end, when the drums come in... just something unexpected.

Grandvision responds:

Ah, kay, surprise the viewer. I get ya. Thanks again. ^^

Not bad at all

From the technical side of things, the piano sounds a bit mechanized and stiff... Honestly, since i use solely synth stuff, I can't fault you TOO much on it.

On your next project, try to use dynamics and such to bring out a greater diversity in the sound (in this case the piano).

Also, I think the ending could have gone for a bit more of a fade-out ending; as it is, it's a little abrupt. Nothing to detract from the experience, but it is noticeable.

All in all, this ain't all that bad; an all-around decent track that is enjoyable.

Grandvision responds:

Thanks. I use Truepianos and I don't know how to master a piano to make it sound more realistic. I use what I can. I will try to use more dynamics in my next track.

Really relaxing, very nice.

What can I say? You caught me at just the right time to listen to your song. I was tired and frustrated and this really chilled me down. =P 10/10, 5/5 for you, buddy. Good work!

Grandvision responds:

Thank you for complimenting my track. I'm glad it made you relaxed.


Just has that very kinda crisp feel to it, can imagine waking up to a nice icy morning while aboard that ship. A very nice mellow feel to it, thanks for sharing :D

Grandvision responds:

Thank you for complimenting and seeing what you can imagine when you listen to this track. I love to put my emotions into these tracks to see what other people can imagine.
