0:00 Starting up. Nice fading in effect.
0:10 I hear those riff melodies coming in. Very happy and ecstatic.
0:20 Ambient kind of. Drums are bit quiet, the low-mids (i think) are a bit overwhelming)
0:40 Very calm and soothing
0:46 Only a little bit repetitive :)
1:00 Nice little change up in here. When you remove that synth that used to be there you free up a lot of sonic space
1:15 ooh nice harmonies and stuff
1:21 Haha I heard that vocoding-type thing
1:30 Not sure about this part. I do like that you're changing it up, using automation filters and stuff.
1:58 Sounds like an underwater synth. I can hear the bass chugging along there. nice if you varied it up.
2:16 Soft and soothing.
2:27 I like those synths that kind of fade in and out. Provide a good interesting embellishment.
2:42 Now it's starting to warm up. I would've liked more of this earlier on to make things interesting.
2:57 Fading out nicely. well done.

This is a slightly repetitive song that you can play in the background while studying or something. Nice automation and stuff, and instruments. Things started to get interesting towards the end, I'd have liked to hear more of that towards the start since that's what most people listen to anyway. Overall decent song with nice dynamics, could use some excitement/flair.


Synthapse responds:

thx for your review i'll take in account some of your points in the future.

yeah. it's cool. best one I heard today.
what's good: it has some dynamics...swelling out of nowhere and fading back into nothing at the end...very musical...ideas develop...good choices for contrast...loved the sparkling ascending scales in the high counter melody near the end
some ideas for future: experiment with micro-placement of some melodic notes in melody parts so they aren't right on top the beat...try for slight delayed placement of notes...try to make it breathe subliminally...combine two or three sounds like a firework....firework thumps off with drum...rises up in base...explodes in a scintillating barrage of sparkles peaked by some stuff way up high...another thing to try, but not in this gem is introducing a couple of extra hiccup beats to delay the reintroduction of a recurring idea...try experimenting with some portamento sliding dipping vibrato clouds and sounds

Synthapse responds:

Hey thx for the review I'm glad that you liked it! Thx for the advice about the notes too I'll try and do that more.

So, I'm not too crazy about whatever it is you decided to modulate at 1:20 and 1:27, but since you did, why don't you also do so at 1:42, just to mark some difference after the break. That section could really benefit from not being the exact same thing.

I really like how you filled out the part at 2:11 though, and it's probably the best part of the song now, imo.

lol @ description

Synthapse responds:

think i should take that effect thing out now? I can do it in like 2 seconds
