This was a soundtrack made in 2012 pure as a motivational soundtrack to myself of becoming good in what I want to accomplish in life!

I hope you guys will love it as much as I did making this soundtrack

I am awed by the simple presence of the song in my brain and motivated to awe it.

This is a pretty nice piece in parts, but I felt that there were a few areas where it could be improved.

One of the things that stuck out to me especially was that the underlying rhythms didn't have much variety. The simple 1-2-1-2 drumbeat in particular got a little boring after a while. While I certainly appreciated the parts where you attempted to diversify it (1:58, for example) it would have given the piece a lot more energy (and perhaps motivation?) if you had made the beat more complex.

I also felt that the sounds that you used would have benefited from some additional diversity. You had the same sound providing the melody throughout the piece, the super-reverby piano sound. This might have been more effective for just a small portion of the melody, or as a supporting instrument, but when it's the lead for the entire piece, I feel that it wears out its welcome pretty quickly--for the same reason that I wouldn't exactly want to eat an entire cake made of frosting.

Another side effect of using a similar set of sounds throughout the piece was that there wasn't much sense of contrast, or tension and release. The piece just sort of seemed to drift along at the same level of intensity throughout, and by either shaking up the sounds you used or including a more subdued section you could improve on this. As it is, it gets a bit boring after a while.

I don't want to sound like I'm trashing the entire piece, because there were some aspects that I quite liked. The sound you used for the bassline, and the rhythm you applied to it, were both highlights that I think have a lot of potential. In fact, most of the sounds you used were very well chosen (I'm not as much a fan of the super-reverby piano, but that's mostly just personal preference--I tend to favor a dryer production style.) I also quite liked the tune of the coda at the end, and I would have liked to hear you expand on it.

Anyway, to summarize, you've got a good array of sounds in this piece, and you're doing interesting things with your choice of bassline. But I feel that for this track to really shine, you need to incorporate a more diverse variety of sound, particularly shaking up the lead instrument, and you need to elaborate on the drumming a little bit. Of course, I would also say that, if this piece succeeds in motivating you, you've already accomplished what you set out to do--this is just what I'd do to make it more motivational to me.

CeeeX responds:

A huge chunk of text that I loved to read; it's constructive stating what the good and bad parts were.

Too bad you didn't like the kickdrums that was repetative, but that wasn't my main focus to the whole song.
It was the melody you had to focus on or else it'd be a mess to make variety to each instruments!

But I'll keep your advice in mind though, who knows I might change it later!

Thanks for the feedback!
