Was completely oblivious to this being a loop for a few goes. That's a sign that it's a great loop :P
R-Type? Looking at the title, I was expecting something for a Touhou-esque game...
But expectations aside, this is pretty good! I like the instruments you used. But, like ArcaneSoul said, turn the bass down a bit. It's so high that the brief stop in there made me feel kind of funny for a few seconds.
Garageband am i hearing? O:
Or did you use logic?
Pretty decent mastering you have there though mostly because you don't have much going on. The bass could be slightly turned down though since im hearing most of it in the right channel (which i don't know why). You could of maybe added a slight echo to the lead but that is just my opinion. Good job in general :)
Good ear! It is indeed Garageband. I've got a copy of Logic, but haven't found the time to learn it yet.
Thanks a lot for the critique! I'll definitely take it into consideration if/when I do another pass on this track.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
