at 0:35, the arp that comes in sounds a bit too much like an unedited preset. It gets better as you speed it up and increase the resonance (or cutoff?), though.

1:40 is good, sounds full. The kick is nice and prominent. Like the pause at 1:53.

2:19 - again, not a huge fan of that arp the way it sounds in this section.

The cutoff automation of the main lead at 1:32 and 2:34 sounds distorted in a bad way, but I'm not sure what you can do to fix that. Use a different filter?

I like the concept of the outro, but the piano could sound more interesting. Sounds a little bit empty, so maybe add some delay? That might create problems when automating tempo, however.

The arp's that I use were actually my creation, I prefer to make my own synthesizing noises. I used Poizone 2 for it. But I could beef them up, a little more, perhaps make them seem less uniform. Make them a little more original sounding. I ended up finding a preset, just out of curiosity, and it sounds all too similar. So I will definitely look into that.

Thanks haha, I believe I messed with a limiter more for this song than my others. Gave it an easier access to make it sound full, rather than too much synthesizer and not enough kick, and made it easier on the ears.

I messed around with the cutoff ability, and I believe the issue was that the drive setting on Toxic Biohazard was set too high. Once it was lowered, the synthesizer lost a little bit of power, but the interference was removed. All I had to do to fix the power was throw in a Soundgoodizer and Balance, and it came back to it's full potential.

I honestly started messing with the outro as soon as I posted this version... I have a little trouble with waiting to perfect it, only because it is Newgrounds. Then again, it could remove from my ability to get well known for good music, especially if what I am putting out is not to par with what I am capable of. But I will try some more with the outro, and let you know how it goes!


very great job! loved the melody a LOT! :D

Thanks man haha, I worked pretty hard for this one and Super Charged. I hope to enjoy some more of your works, and I hope you continue to enjoy mine as well!


It's pretty good :) not sure what I'd change, something feels a little off (not sure though?) anyway, still sounds really nice :) Please go check out some of my music and I'll be sure to comment on some of your other tracks if you'd like... just don't expect most of my music to be very good :/ oh well. anyway, good job :)

Pwnage101 responds:

Thanks for the input, mate. And yeah, I do feel like there was something that needed changed, but like you said, I couldn't figure it out. The kickdrum might overpower the melody a little too much on this song. And thanks mate, I will be sure to check out some more of your work.
