I disagree with SolusLunes, True the baseline has been done before, but it fits this song, nice piece of music, props man.
Why, Flashburn, why?
I cannot count the times that the classic combination of "buzz bass, kick, snare, buzz bass, kick, random reversed cymbal" has been heard by my ears.
To be honest, it's gotten VERY OLD.
Your arpeggios are seriously McGodly material. The panning is a nice touch, the mastering... masterful.
But the bass is simply vanilla- bland, overused, and overall, unfufilling.
Can't you do SOMETHING with it?
At the very least, try to do something that not everyone else is doing. You can do the arps, (however, these are sad arps. This is a GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THEM: They are masterful, bouncing around on the song... and around... and around... and around again... then comes that beepy high one. I like that one. And then they stop changing, and decide to filter the same three or four notes until the end. And of course, the bass just comes and pelvically thrusts them into... well, everything else. You have the skill and talent to do more! Why are you wasting it on something like this? Those arps are crying out for something new! I seriously think that's the ONLY good thing about this song.
I hate to say it, Flashburn. This song is pure vanilla with a coating of awesome arps and amazing mastering. Sure, it sounds nice, but it's soulless. It's what EVERYBODY FREAKING ELSE IS DOING. DON'T DO THAT.
What sets it apart from the millions of other songs like it? Nothing. You don't have a distinctive sound to this, nothing to remember it by. Sure, it sounds good, but will you ever remember it? No. There are songs, there are good songs, and there are memorable songs.
It feels to me like you want to be proud of this, but... why? Nothing sets it apart.
And that's what you need, something to set you apart.
I hate to say it, but PLEASE don't waste your hours and skill on the arpeggios on such a shaky foundation like this. You can do better.
It's not a question of technical talent, because you've got that down cold. It's just that this lacks a creative soul.
I can't, in good faith, give this a McBurger or any higher than a three- because you can do better, and you and I both know that.
This song is great i love the synths. pretty sweet. i like it how it builds up.
Just getting around to listening to your music. It's very well created.
Gotta love that ending, ahaha.
