I tried to make a song as original as possible by using FL sounds...deal with the vocals



5/5 to get your score up. this is good, however much you like claps you really should try doing something different with them, like put some sample delay on them or other effects. i find using more than one track for drums can really make beats sound more original, as long as you add effects to all of them. no heavy effects but just things to slightly change the sound. the vocals worked well but could've used a little reverb. one of the problems i've found with FL is that everything sounds hollow unless you REALLY work at it. i use logic pro and still end up spending a whole lot of time just figuring out the instruments. just spend a little more time on your effects and instrument settings and you'll be really good.

thanks! yeah, I actually use ACID...so I have the imported sounds from FL and try my best to change them up, but the quality comes out worse because it's not through FL...I dunno, I'm still learning how to add some effects to my sounds...thanks for the review!

Very cool.

This gets my feet tappin. Great beat. Love the clappy-ness. You definatley have some serious potential.

PHOENIXtrunks responds:

thanks a lot! I LOVE the claps, but I feel like I'm over-using them now :( but I think it works fine for this song! :D hahaha, thanks for the great review!!!

Nice job for using FL sounds

Yeah, this song really does sound cool, even with the default FL sounds included. The beats are killer, even if some are premade. You'll become a great artist in no time (hopefully).

PHOENIXtrunks responds:

thanks! yeah, I think I have one pre-made drum loop in there...oh well...everything is a one hitpeice...I think I'm in love with the claps ^^ I made a couple other songs (heavy in claps...) I like them (and they are a bit Aphex Twin-ish), but we'll see if it's a hit or miss...as for this song, I made it to test out the waters of making a nice, beat-oriented song instead of heavy synth...thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked it!!!
