Not my fav lead, but a good track just the same
That echoing synth you're using sounds like it came from sytrus; I can't remember the name of it though. Interesting choice for the opening; not my favorite, but it's defensible I guess. I will say this, though, I thought that you did a great job building it up, but I think it would be better if you automated the 'pluckiness' on that synth. That way, it would sound more like a lead by the time the chorus come on. I find the pluck's attack really annoying over that square wave bass.
My only other critique is that I think the bass should be a bit lower, because you lose the rest of the pluck synth behind it (you hear mostly the attack and almost none of the sustain). Adjusting the lvls on that bass would make your lead stand out more (which maybe you don't want, but I'd prefer it).
All in all, I think this has some promise, but it needs some work and (obviously) some variety as it gets longer. Good luck finishing her up, man!
haha, actually the only thing that I'm using that is from Sytrus is the pads and they are modded ;)
the beginning is kinda just in there. I might keep it, I might not.
I'll consider the lower base, I still need to do some more internal equalization to get everything to stand out the way it should, however, that will come all in good time. :)
thank you for the review, I will definitely (and already have) adhere to your advice.
I'm actually listening to it right now, thinking and scheming on how I can make this song into a true work of art.
If you want to have further say in the making of this song just PM me!
P.S. BTW everything in this song is original. All the loops are mine and there are almost no default synths in there. Everything either has filters or are modded within the synth. I do need better drums...but that will also come good time. :)
