My first real attempt at using anything other than a piano.
My lack of knowledge with Fl studio and VSTs is kind of hindering me atm, but I'm trying to make the most out of what I know and what I can figure out.

Everything is just played and recorded onto my keyboard using preset sounds from my keyboards soundbank, then I just re-record them into FL where I add automations and whatnot.
Certainly not the most efficient way of doing things, but meh.

My first attempt at using automations or pretty much any tool in Fl studio
No mixing has been done at this point other than some basic panning and volume automations

Main reason for posting this so far before it's finished is for honest feedback, so if you have anything to say, I would very much appreciate a review. Just trying to figure out what I can improve on as this piece means a lot to me and I'm kind of a perfectionist haha

No idea if this is classical or cinematic or something else entirely, so I'll just shove it here for now.

Sure! Thanks for asking
Thanks for review! :)

this is unbelievable I'm using it for my movie that I am making and it is so great for it

drumdude responds:

Thanks! Good luck on your movie!

It has a somber feel, and it can also be calming. I could see this as background music while an artist is painting or something :P As one reviewer said, there is not much variation, but I think that actually works toward this piece being a nice soothing background piece to a task, as nothing jumps out at the listener. I think it's pretty well done. Nice work.

drumdude responds:

Thanks! I can definitely see this as background music haha.

As I said to the other reviewer, this is going to be a much longer song, so hopefully the variation will show in the final product.

Appreciate the review!

You say you have no experience but you are truely remarkable at making music.

drumdude responds:

Thanks! I just try to do the best I can haha
