Gee wiz, Corbetto! This sounds very different to your previous songs :O

That would be because i have purchased FL Studio Producer Edition and have spent the past 2 months learning how to use it :D

I thought i would share some of the stuff i've been working on with my new program with you chaps on newgrounds since i haven't uploaded in a while. So here you go :P

Hi Corbetto,

I hope your experience with your new music program has been going well. Not sure what previous program you used. I will take into consideration of your recent technological change in my review.

The buildup for the most part is good. Has a good amount of fill alone. The highly reverbed cymbal clash to start the song is a nice touch. 0:16 well played. My only concern is that the instrument does not sound as as I would have liked. Have you ever heard of trance anthem songs? Trance Energy concerts tend to have the best anthems (my opinion). Your bass lacks some power. Perhaps layer it with a sub-bass and intensify the higher misconception is that people think bass should only have lower frequencies intensified. This will only give the messy dull sound. With high frequencies emphasized, the bass becomes crisper and clear.

0:11 the layered instrument is a good idea compositionally. Again, there needs to be more emphasis on the higher frequencies on that instrument as it sounds washed down. Add in some reverb to that instrument too. Listen to Breeze (Martin Roth Summer style remix). Note the high frequencies emphasized for the lead instrument. Also notice at 0:28 of that song when the bass comes in. it sound much crisper when higher frequencies are involved in a trance dance like song?

0:46 Where did the climax go? I know your new to your program still, but certain FL has much better drum loops than that. Just a generic kick and clap? This is where you really needed to add reverb. Climax also requires the bass. Everything should come together here, but unfortunately it does not. I was also hoping for a new composition to the same beat again. sure your spending plenty of time learning how to use your program, which is a good thing. However, skip on spending time composing your song (notes wise). A good idea is to play a beat with a bland instrument. For example, choose a piano preset and just play something. If you manage to compose a song that keeps you interested throughout, then convert the score so it is played with well produced instruments and fx. A common error that many musicians make including myself is that we get caught up in the special effects that we fail to recognize our lack of innovativeness in the score of the song.

1:20 I noticed you emphasized more reverb and the delay to the bass. Good job here, but again it needs to be more clean sounding. Not much more to add here as the song is looping.

Overall, I am impressed with what you were able to accomplish in just 2 months with your new program. There is still room for improvement. Whatever you do, never use that horrific oscillation pattern that so many FL based artists use in any of your future songs. Not saying you used it in this song...just giving the heads up. Anyway, work on cleaning up your instruments. Reverb is important, however more reverb = more messy therefore compensate with higher frequencies. Play around with your keyboard to come up with a more original score. And as always, have fun making music. 5/5

This is by far the greatest review i have ever received on one of my songs and i can not express how much i appreciate it. The advice and examples you have given me are just great. Your comments and suggestions have motivated me to learn more about making music than just the composing, so i can get my songs to a higher quality standard. You have helped me a lot with this review, thank you Music-story.

So epic keep it up another awesome song from you woohoo!! :DDD
