Original Project. This one has been sitting in my project folder for a while, and only now have I decided to upload it after a few hours of fiddling with it. I'm as always pretty happy with the end result, and I hope you will be too :D

Really repetitive , I infact tried to skip ahead a few times in the start and had to check it it registered. I thought since noting changed in the 1 min in skipped certainly my browser was messed up. Come to find out it was the same segment looped for a solid few mins.

Again it sounds like all your sounds are in the same channel making them all fight for control of it. this will result in sounds moving out of the way if you will when another one comes in. You almost have a saturation of saw waves in this song. It seems pretty harsh through out most of it with that mid saw going all the time. Try running an envelope or cut off filter on some of the harsher sounds at times to give a flow and ease some tension off the ears for a period of time.

I liked allot of your other works much more than this one. Keep it up all the same.

I'll try and keep that in mind for the future. I agree that it is quite repetetive, but again, that's often how I like my music, although this one might be a bit one the heavy side. Regardless, I appreciate the feedback :D

Currently I'm working on recording actual guitar parts into songs with my rocksmith usb cable thingamajig. so who knows what I'll end up making.

Pretty cool! The volume control (or is it banked delay?) on the lead synth is interesting!
I really like the synth, but I'm not such a fan of the bells. I think that whenever the bells are looping this would reaaally benefit from an ambient pad or FX loop in the background.

The mix isn't bad at all! I'd only suggest you consider lowering the saw-pad's volume a touch.

Overall this really is quite good, my biggest complaint is that it doesn't really go anywhere. I mean the melody switches a little, there's some neat silence-staggering, etc, but it's mostly the same thing over and over again.

Essentially, well done, needs a little more variation! I'll give ya 3.5/5 and happily rate you 4. :)

Septyrikon responds:

Thanks for the feedback :D I know what you mean about it not going anywhere, I didn't really have any ideas as to where it should go, so in the end I just tampered a bit with it and uploaded it. As I wrote in the description, it had been sitting still for some time before I got around to doing anything final about it, so yeah, my interest in it had faded a bit.

All in all, I tend to do music that is centered around a single idea, melody or some such thing. Only rarely do I branch out into other melodies or b- and/or c-parts. Mostly because I find it difficult to get a nice progression between two things like that.

The lead synth is done with a delay effect, not volume, btw :)
