This has got to be my longest, most ambitious song so far. I have used samples from LazerBlade/Music Hacker and Bryce Coulson, along with one instance of Triple Oscillator and multiple instances of Synth1.
Tempo: 168 BPM
100 Percent original with no loops.

Like this a lot.

Dunno if it's intentional but it sounds like a live performance to me, slightly low fi and the verb has this medium sized venue feel.

Make more, it's a good vibe.

Sounds like a good idea.

Alrighty, so ya kick it off with some weird ass low-gurgling like sounds. The drum intro with just those ambient effects really reminds me of Noisia. It's never a bad idea to layer samples that have similar tones or complimenting tones, and changing the pitch of them so that the samples you're layering don't collide, and help the sound instead of work against it. I don't really layer bass drums (unless it's a bassy kick sample and a kick sample with the bass zapped out of it to give the bassy kick some texture) but for instance, that clap you're using sounds great. But it sounds like it could use a little poppy snare underneath it just to give it some more presence.

Wow, 4 minutes in, and it's like this is an acid freaks ideal music. Keep on playing with your bass sounds so you can get a sound that stands out a bit more :) Also making a cool sounding bassline with a shitload of effects, zapping the bass out of it, and then layer just a sine wave (just one oscillator) underneath it so that it gives the bass with no bass a nice thick sound.

Interesting piece of music sir. It wouldn't have hurt to hear some drum breaks or pauses for dramatic effect in the song; I heard a few parts where it could have really helped the arrangement. Keep doin' what you're doin man!

FightingSeraph responds:

Now that is a legitimate review, and this started out as an exercise from watching Boy in a Band's Darkstep tutorial videos. As for making music, I'll keep at it even if most of my songs end up sucking shit to the point of being unsuitable for the Audio Portal.
