Ow. My ears. FL Keys, we meet again.
It had LOTS of potential, but then, the clipping :s, and the instrument dynamics don't fit well and feels out of place. The samples do need to get upgraded a bit too. other than that it was fine.
You have to do something about the clipping
The main things that stick out for me is the clipping, and some mixing issues (the bass around 1:30 is WAYYYY too loud. Those issues need to be addressed first. However, melodically it isn't bad, although a slight bit repetitive at the beginning a bit.
Other than that, this song has plenty of potential. I'd get me some better samples though.
Yeah, I fully agree.
I was trying to get it to sound right for a while and I ended giving up out of frustration.
I was recording the majority of this live, so that is why it was hard to get the bass lower. I don't like using software to create orchestral sounding music, I find it rude to do so.
