The beginning sounded like a song from this game called Custom Robo Battle
I check out the OST from that, and the song, "Heaven", from that game, has a VERY brief pad-with-gate sound that is sort of similar to my pad sound, but it switches completely after the first few seconds of it.
Why are people telling me my music is sounding like the very beginnings of obscure video-game songs that I've not even heard of, lately?? o____O
I like the chilled feel with the sick, raw, bitcrushed undertone. Nice tune, man.
Hehe, thank you, mate! :) Glad to hear you like it!
hmmm its vaguely familiar
its reminds me of the theme to parasite eve 2 for the ps1
O.o I've not heard that music before, so I checked it out on youtube--I'm sorry, but even the tiny pad sound at the very start to "Parasite Eve II OST - Forbidden Power (Theme for Aya) ~ Title Theme", doesn't bear any resemblance to my song. My chords, pads, tempo, panning, etc, are all noticeably different. :P
Thank you for 10 though! :)
A Liquid-y, DnB-y, IDM-y piece, for sure.
Quite appreciative of the meshing of various genres to create an intricate and complex piece.
I do quite enjoy the mass amount of drum hits you incorporate and how you play around with it to create some swingin' and jumpy beats. The lack sub-bass is made up with low-fi automated pads and very atmospheric sounds in the background, as well as that very deep bass drum you play with.
A bit of a complaint: the pad on the extreme left and the other on the right tends to be a bit tough on the ol' ears there. I understand that you're trying to create a spacious range to give the song some depth, but the constant LFO automation becomes a tad annoying as well as painful. I would suggest instead of having both pan'd to extremes for the balance, have them move around. That way, it would seem as if the listener would be moving from place to place and section to section.
Love the melodic theme at 3:00. Nicely done combining the delay of the melody with the automated bass-line. Tricky tricky ;)
At some points, would seem that the song kind of jumps for a good second or so, if not for just a moment, and it threw me off a little and made me lose the rhythm. (Not sure if that was intended or if that's something that's happening in my browser ooor what.) Happens quite noticeably at 0:29.
Besides what was notice, this a very interesting piece. Love the complexity. Very varied in all aspects. The mix sounds very fresh, clear and shiny like the moon rays that inspired you to make this track :)
Wow, thank you for the awesome constructive critique! :) I can tweak the panning a bit and see if that helps, as I wasn't wanting 'painful', hehe! I also always mix in-production with my DJ'ing (Sony MDR-V700) headphones to hear what it sounds like, as another perspective. Perhaps a small dip in volume would solve the roughness?
That tiny 0:29 'jump' doesn't happen to me, hmm. O.o
But again, thank you for that thoughtful review, mate! :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
