Hikari responds:

I still to this day come back here to laugh at this. Thank you though, that is super flattering. :3


it sounds like a club anthem it is just GREAT!!

Very Good

I use trance and other music for tourism vids I make.

I spent 30 years in bands as a front man so am critical of music I use. I would use this music in one of my productions.

One of my main criteria in selecting music is that it must at least sound like it was done by live musicians even if it wasn't.

Some parts seem to be overdriving and I think you could make the drum beat more audible, seems a little tinny and the beat is what gets people feet dancing so needs to be up there with the rest of the music.

Otherwise great stuff.

please dont use my work to advertise your youtube chanle.

Nice melody, work on the production quality.

Your musical skill is very good! This song had a very nice feeling. :D

You need to work more on the production quality, here are some things I noticed:

- Sound is destroyed at some points, example @ around 1:25. Avoid this by keeping the peak meter below zero throughout the whole song.

- It sounds over-compressed. (especially at the beginning before the drums enter the picture)

- You should get some better samples, that would bring it up A LOT. Sounds like you used the samples that are in FL from the start... (they suck)

- The synth (preset?) you used sounded awful, i suggest you get better VST plugins and work more on the sound.

Those were my major concerns. :) Fix those things and I'll give it a 8-9!

Keep producing man, you have potential!

Hikari responds:

thanks! Iv been producing on my back up back up computer so i dont have vangard or nexus atm. I made all of my presets my self with sytrus, but yeah sytrus kind of blows. The lead is just a saw with unisen to make it a super saw, kind of cheep. The samples where actualy VEC2 but the kick wasnt as punchy as i would have liked. I agree with you on the over compressed remark, im still getting used to compretion. I have been getting lazy and used maxumus preset on the master tarack, but thats because i woke up from a dreem with this melody in my head and pulled a 24 hour production binge. LOL

But no thank you SO much for the critiqu! Mucho apreciated.

Fruty Limiter ftw? (jk, i need to avoid 'needing' a limiter on the master, I should stop being lazy and start mixing properly xO)
