A combination of guitar, piano and synths.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I suppose it'd be unfair to judge it on a personal level, I personally feel like it's lacking in substance, and the tonality isn't really of my tastes--
Beyond that, on a technical level, the major chords and the limitation to 3 semitones of variation leaves some unsavory dissonance with the melody. I see that a good amount of work went into putting this together, but it's kind of amorphous. The mastering leaves you unable to pick out any of the instruments, and as a loop it's kind of truncated. Not that it's awful, the equalization with the end of the song just doesn't match up with the beginning, and it leaves it feeling cut off, rather than a smooth loop. With some polishing it could be, at least from a technical standing whole lot better.

First of all, thanks for the review. It's always good to have some feedback.

This track was actually a little experiment that differs a lot from my normal work. Most of my tracks are made in a minor scale. I was trying to step away from that, with this track. I also tried to experiment with dissonant tones, to sway away from the convenient chords that I normally use.

This is also the first track in 2 years that feature a guitar. The problem with the mastering is mostly because of the guitar tracks that were added. Without the guitar, you can hear all the instruments, but with the guitar added, you can't even hear the difference between the piano and guitar at some parts.

The equalization part is a mistake that I even thought off before uploading, but I forgot to change. The track starts with total silence and ends with quite a bit of reverb and delay effects. I should have looped it one time and cut of the first take.

Thanks again. Comments like this help me a lot in learning what I should and should not do.
