(S10) Arrival

The bass melody continues! I'm trying to make the bassline (and variations on it) to be sort of the..."Human Theme", without it getting too repetitive.

I decided to go with the name Arrival, because after getting the midsection and ending laid down, I thought of arriving in the docking bay, and the feeling of being surrounded by technology and the unknown.


What it does, it does well.

What it is is pretty good. Bass sounds super deep and still clear, which is all you can ask for from bass sounds. But I can't help but like surely you can add something other than just bass and drums. For example, some simple synth chords in there could really add variety and depth, while still keeping the focus on the bass (which I guess ties together your human theme, which I think is a fantastic idea). Get some more elements in there so that you can fiddle with more than just the drum pattern for variety. It needs variety. Did I mention variety? It could work great for a while if the levels were short enough and you were rotating songs for the various levels. But I've been listening to it while I write this review ... and it could use some variety. :)

But, like I said, what you do have going on is done well. 7/10 for being well done this far, but I think you gotta go a little further. I'd be happy to give you some simple chord ideas if you'd like.

Thanks for the input, these submissions have thus far been my only attempts ever at making music beyond acoustically recorded drums, so it's great to hear some criticism. I'm aware of the repetitiveness I keep doing, I found a bassline that wasn't horrible and seem to have taken it to heart a little too much.

But more importantly: I definitely agree that more could (and SHOULD) be added to it...What are some chords that you would suggest for this? I'm totally open and all ears for any help, suggestions, and constructive criticism I get :)

pew pew pew

I can totally see myself shooting some baddies to this music. very nice!

loop may need a bit of help but other than that, me like :)
