I'm in a strange enough mood to not want to type out a large review like usual, but I really like the piano melody, and that bass around 2:40 that reminds me of old synthpop in a good way. I also like the electronic hits and pads throughout.
Half a star is taken off for a few things, and most of the reasons I can't even identify, but helpfully I say that some of those windy sweeps can be too loud compared to the often quite dropdowns before them.
Also, it's weird you said you aren't knowledgable about other ways of making sounds. Not only is that not true (Bastion, which I've just remixed for myself, uses a single Tamba or something with effects to create large parts of the track) but also I am the opposite: I find I spend more time fiddling with synths than mastering, mixing, rendering and publishing combined!
Oh, and look, I've gone on and on for ages once again... Anyway I want to say as a last note that the combination of emotive arps and sounds at 01:00-ish is just brilliant. Not sure if I'm hinting to do that again, or just putting it out there.
Haha, don't worry - I've been in that mood for a while. Especially since I haven't much time with finals... UGH
Old synthpop!? Awsum.
Haha, cools! I'm glad you think so about my sound making skills - it means I'm doing okay with my meager skills xD Synthing does take up a majority of the time - I find myself spending the most time on mixing and automation work, with mastering a close second.
Aww, thanks man :') Wow, you read my mind! ;) Want me to let you in on a secret? *scoots closer* I'm making a melodic dubstep VIP mix of this... WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
