I just learned how to create some synth music today and figured I'd see the response to a first time creation/submission. I've only listened to it on headphones so I'm not sure what it would sound like on speakers. The intro static noise is meant to be there, it was my crappy attempt at an old record sound. Criticism welcome. (LMMS) used as software.

First time submitting? Cool! Alright then, let's just keep that in mind, from listening to it initially, I'll have plenty to say that will hopefully get you started well on your say to making good music!

-If you made your own synths, that's pretty good. I don't make my own, actually... mainly just edit them. If you get good at this, that could be a really nice thing to be able to do - or you might be able to collar with other artists by making their synths for them! (...of course, I could be reading "I just learned how to create some synth music today" wrong, but whatever, it's still true)
-I don't hear any actual static in the very start of the intro. I guess that's... good?

-Instead of static at the beginning, there are little clip sounds at the end of each note.
-Since you're new to this, I'll give an overall tip rather than nitpicking. The harmonies in the background of the chords from 0:28-0:48 need some work. They DEFINITELY do at 1:03-1:16. Try looking up musical harmony and scales, and use them to make more harmonic backgrounds and melodies within the chords that you're using.
-Try also looking up mixing techniques, as the overall mixing of this song is fairly poor - a lot of the sounds are buried by the others or just too loud.
-Above all, just experiment for awhile and learn the program, as Haggard said. That will help you quite a bit in learning to make music - just figuring out how to use what you're using!

Overall: Needs a lot of improvement. But hey, you're just starting out, so that's cool. Keep working at it, and you'll get there! Good luck!

Yes, this is my first creation, as I taught myself how to use the program in roughly an hour, I definitely agree with refining my work. I did create the synth sounds myself, after about 2 or 3 hours of work. I've adopted a new program since, Ableton, so I'm hoping I can get more from this program as well as more creative depth. Thanks for the recommendations.

It's a rather short piece and not very creative. But since this is your first creation, this shouldn't be too surprising. You still need some time to figure out how to work with the program you use and if you keep at it, I think you will be able to create some pretty cool stuff in the very near future!

Slavemule6 responds:

As stated it was my first experiment, and I didn't spend more than 3 hours on it. I realized that this program did not have the capabilities I hoped it did, so I've moved to something better. Thanks for the review and I hope to release something epic soon.
