Remember the dreams you have for only you can carry them out... Contemplating the past can be difficult, especially if it is filled with regret. But at any moment can you choose to surpass yourself and achieve that which is most important to you. So remember your forgotten dreams and make them a reality :)


I don't agree with xxZigZag. This song is suppose to sound awesome. 5 stars bro.

Great thanks!

0:00 Nice start.
0:15 The melody is interesting, it has a nice kind of sound to it.
0:25 But it kinda sounds like you just stacked sounds on top of each other. The snare is particularly out of place. Needs reverb or something, I think. It has a really "smacky" high end that assaults the ears. You should really check that out.
1:01 Melodies are pretty good tho, but you got some interesting detuned instruments there with very long release. They drown out a lot of the other instruments. They're also probably hogging the lo-mid range. But, eh, what do I know?
1:39 It is quite nice and euphoric here.
1:49 You got a nice little violin piece here.
2:15 This part is nice and different. It's got a nice little lower part, counter melody played by the viola, and then they stack over each other. Very epic violin solo :)
2:58 There's that gated synth again.

Well, I didn't get bored. It was a pretty standard piece, but that's the thing. You might need some mixing here and there, to separate the frequencies, make them more clear. But also, using a noise wave and automating a low-pass filter on it, can give the impression of swelling up to a particularly intense part. I reckon that some parts would gain energy from doing that, then have a cymbal at the end. On the other end, it may cheapen it too. Just do what you feel.

Overall, a nice song, with a few flaws. Touch this one up, and it could be a real hit.

Hi! Thanks for your response. I was hoping I'd get some feedback. This song hasn't been mixed yet so good call on the frequency issues. I too see the issue with the harsh snare, gonna work on that. Interesting idea with the noise wave and automated filter. I'll try out some things and see. Thanks for taking some time and offering some constructive criticism. Appreciate it!
