This is my first ever song, i made it in the FL studio demo so please, take it easy with the constructive criticism. Thanks for listening!



I like how you put some piano in this. I really love the piano. It can make any song sound nice if used correctly and boy did you use it correctly.

Very well done!! :D
I love everything in that song!!

AustinHayes responds:

thanks man!:D you should check out some of my other stuff too if you liked that!

Impressive :)

Very impressive for a first song. I see some potential in you, and i already like some of the techniques in there. Or4nges has already covered what I was going to say!

I suggest you look over some tutorials or forums on chord progressions, and hopefully that would help you in creating more songs that would be more impressive.

Well done, and continue on with the works... I'll be keeping an eye on you ;)

AustinHayes responds:

Thanks man! i've got another song coming very very soon, and took most of Or4nges' advice so i hope it's good! anyway, i appreciate the support!:D

Oh my.

Quality wise, this is one of the best first songs i've ever heard. That kick is punchy as hell, the snare fits nicely with it, great (albeit fairly loud) bass, and a nice saw lead over it.

Here's some criticism though. On all your transitions you used the fruity Free Filter. You might wanna step away from that; It's a really full on effect and needs to be used sparingly. I recommend using reverse crashes, snare rolls, and other filtering effects for your transitions to keep things fresh. There's alot of things you can do.

Also, I think some of your instruments are a bit loud. The bass kind of drowns everything out, along with your saw lead. You can barely hear the hi-hats over it. Try working on that next time :P EQing helps alot too. By cutting out frequencies you can make room for other sounds while still keeping the same volume.

1:22 was an awesome break. Some effects here and there would do awesomely. Maybe some delay on the piano? That lead you had over it was a great call too by the way, i'm a sucker for distorted, airy type things lol. Only problem is your transition back, Maybe try filtering your bass back into the song at 1:43? As is it's kind of ... jarring :P

There's some other stuff too, but since this is your first song, i'll let it slide :P Seriously awesome work here though, Some people take ages to get this good of sound quality. Song structure wasn't that bad either, reminded me of a few of my first songs; Dancey bass, Catchy lead, and of course a piano break lol.

... Whoa, sorry for the wall of text lol. Anyways I look forward to more! Keep up the good work dude.

People find this review helpful!
AustinHayes responds:

Thanks for the feedback man! I'll definitely have some much better stuff soon. And consider all of your suggestions duly noted:D

This is awesome :D

Dude this song is soooo good. It's crazy that you made it sound this good only using the fl studio demo.. and only using sytrus and 3xosc, that's crazy. Great work my friend. I hope to see more songs by you in the future!
