A song I wrote and recorded within a span of 2 hrs for my girlfriend who was feeling down



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Haha... WTF

Haha, This song is awesome. I never thought I'd hear music like this on NG. Super cheezy. I hope you're not offened by that because I DO like it.

I hope it made your girlfriend feel better.

Check out my music if you want but you probably won't like it. It's very different from what you do.

Well you gave me a perfect score so how can I take offense? lol. Yeah I'll admit it's a bit was all derived and sequenced within a 2hour span so not a whole lot of time was spent refining it.

Thank you for your warm wishes. Rest assured, it did make her feel better. After the tears, that is. hehe. Thanks for the review.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very neat

When i heard this, i felt pretty nice, you have talents within composing but i though your choices in sounds were a bit weak, sounds a bit like sampled GM(General Midi, this isn't a compliment!).

You need more "air" in your track, try using another sound for the piano, one with plenty of reverb and release times, this will make it more "whooshy" and floating.

The voice is pretty good, but far from perfect, sorry. You're good at singing, but you need the right tools to make it sound good also:

1. A good mic(you have this)
2. An autotuner(Gsnap is a free autotuner and Antares autotune is clearly the best commercial autotuner.)
3. In some cases a good sounding chorus.
4. A reverb(you have this too)

To me, this vocal needs step 2 and 3. To add more air to your vocal, boost some of the high frequencies(5-10.000 hertz) by 3-5 db...

Don't think that i think this track is bad, as it's not at all, i'm just trying to give you some useful feedback and improvement points, like i would have wanted from a review on my own audio.

If you have time, why not stop by and leave me a review?


Jonnycakes responds:

Thank you for the extensive review!! there was no general MIDI involved. The instruments were wet samples from Garritan Personal orchetra. The problem is that I'm at school abroad so I dont have all my gear...including a sustain pedal, which is what's really needed to get the piano more flowing.

I appreciate your advice on the frequencies though, I'll apply that next time, see how it sounds, and I'll look into the autotuners. Thanks again! :)
