The synth definitely compliments the guitar. Good effort on getting this done in just over 4 hours, sounds top for the time you've put in, keep at it.
The guitar reminds me of Faunts, and if you aren't familiar with them, check them out.
The bass is really bottom heavy though, I find. Hit it with a HPF (even maybe a -6dB at 55ish hz and experiment) and reduce some of the muddiness in it, and then it'll really shine through. I think when you've got the synth lead come in, push it to one side or the other, not just the whole stereo field; that'll make the guitar still defined but also keep the synth more defined also
Thanks for the solid review! I'll experiment with a HPF and pan the synth to see how it turns out!
FREAKING BEAUTIFUL makes me think of happy times when I was very little.
As Chem said, it is reminiscent of the Transistor OST (in the best of ways). I love the progression and development of layers in this piece, so well done! The one thing I might suggest would be to lower the volume of the guitar (or whatever the first instrument is) and allow it to gradually rise as the bass and drums enter. At the moment it's a bit sharp on the ears.
All in all though, it's fantastic!
Thank you! I've never played Transistor. It sounds like I need to check into it. I appreciate your advice and will make the changes immediately!
Reminds me a bit of the Transistor soundtrack, which is one of my favorites in recent memory. Love it!
Thanks! I appreciate it!
