Hey, thanks for the helpful review!
"I really like this tune, mate. Everything sounded crystal clear, and the melodies are memorable."
Good to hear! I'm quite proud of the melodies in this song, I think they're some of my best.
"I particularly like the snare you used. Could you tell me where I can get good snare samples like that one? I would like to use it for my techno project I am working on right now."
Of course. Here - http://www.darkbeats.com/sampleswap/ - is the source of a lot of my drum samples. They're all free, and while they're not exactly professional quality, there are so many drum samples in there that you're bound to find tonnes of hidden gems.
You're not the first to like the snare I used here (someone else said it sounds great when I used it in another song of mine, Town Theme). This one in particular is from the 5000_DRUMHITS.rar library (specifically in this filepath: SAMPLES - 5000 DRUMHITS > ACCOUSTI > AMBIENTS). If you want me to send you the snare sample on its own, just drop me a line!
"My only critique for this song right now is that after the second chorus part, it felt like it dreaded on for a while. I wanted something else to happen, but nothing new came in."
Haha I have a bit of a problem with that. Once I reach like the second chorus of a song or finish a long section of a song, I start feeling the urge to finish the track as quick as I can so I can submit it here :P. I often end up rushing the last sections of a song. Perhaps that's why you thought it got a bit boring towards the end. Although I do like the tribal-like part right after the second chorus, personally.
"Overall, I thought this was a pretty solid track. You rarely find pop songs like these nowadays. Keep up the good work, bro."
Thanks a million, I'll try!
"Could you please review me back on my first submission? I would appreciate the feedback. :)"
I'd love to. I'm really busy right now reviewing for a competition I'm hosting along with loads of Maths homework so I might take a long while to review I'm afraid, but I'll add it to my to-do list :3.
