A little something i made for someone i found on tumblr.

Mastering wasn't TOO hard to work with in this one. I did try using compressors but i evnetually just got rid of them since i still don't get how to use them nor what are they for besides sidechaining.

Oddly enough i spent alot of time on the thinking process for this one rather than constructing it. I kept erasing and rewriting some ideas in this so i could get the right feel. In the end i don't think i did very well on the melodies but the chord progressions i really like. Plus a little bit of sound design too. Just a little :3

The opening melody with the piano is good. the delay length is exactly a quarter note, which is kinda strange. I don't like the bass piano line at 2:00 though. One melody protip is to not have a ton of notes all of the same length without any breaks. It is very hard to pull off correctly and it'll probably just end up sounding silly. I used to do that a lot lol. I hear it again at 7:00.

I agree with piggemz, the opening piano needs more body, it could be really good with a little tweaking.

I like the beat at 2:40. the sounds at 3:30 are great. sounds like an ice paradise. 4:30 is good too, the introduction of the strong (but subtle somehow) bass.

my favorite bit is def that stretch from 3:00-5:00. good percussion :3 good stuff, you handled the ambient genre pretty well.

legitimate. in a good way.
___what program did u use for this again? ableton? 1:18 or whatever is quite epic if i do say so myself. you have nice story-telling abilities. i didnt like the piano voice, it was too high endy for me, not enough body. like the 3:33 area, nice and spacey. im not sure about the mixing i guess though... something about the drums levels seem off to me but it could be my speakers oh wait 4:10 area has a nice kick so nvm. im typing as im listening if u cant tell.
___i must say that i was never fond of those fade-in-synths. you happened to use one in this track, its playing chords in the background. 7:50 now and idk, it felt like it could have been bigger but whatever. it was nice for what it was, pretty good production. but sort of awkward transitions and some awesome transitions lol idk. ima give dat 4 star sheit

ArcaneSoul responds:

Yeah i tend to do meh on these kinds of songs. And yes i use ableton as well.

Mixing is always tricky on these ones for some reason. So if your hearing some poor mixing, thats why XD
