Zomg, Awesome

You're Awesome dude xD Lava piranhas song is one of the best boss music in the game, and your remix is as awesome as the original! not too high tones, and not too low, and I can listen to this all day long ^^


You went with more of a rockish kinda thing this time, although it worked out well, this strangly sounds familiar though. I also liked the percussion in the background. 4/5

DSMagnum responds:

It's a remix of the song from Paper Mario when you are fighting the giant Lava Pirahna.

Thanks for reviewing!

*sniff* its better than mine...

An awsome mix! The "tribal beat" skips a bit some times though, and the drums some times drown out the...high pitched instrument, its the one that subs the square like sound, if you sorta understand, lol (^_^). Ending screws up a little, but the main song loops enough time to salvadge a decent loop.

That aside though, this is fantastic! <3 the instruments!

Keep it up!

DSMagnum responds:

Well, the "high pitched" instruments were all the same guitar with different effects on each. When I was listening to it, I thought that I had perfectly distributed the instrument volumes, but apparently I could've done a little better.

I'm glad you liked it!

monkey punch

like the cheekyness of this one. i reckon the drums need a bit more high end, are a little murky and perhaps a smidgen of reverb on the guitar would go a long way.
gj tho

DSMagnum responds:

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll keep them at mind for my next song.


Hey DSMagnum.

Quite a song you have up here. I like the guitars, but I wonder, if adding more distortion to them would be better. The guitars sound like Hyper Canvas VST. Am I correct?

I like the feel of the song, flows quite well, and if i'm not mistaken it loops pretty good too.

The song feels a tad empty though, I would have liked to hear some kind of background support, either from strings, or some pads, just to fill in the silence you know.

Have you also considered using the reverb effects? I think the reverb would have worked great in this song.

Still excellent piece. May I ask you to listen to my new track under the alias MaestroRage
I used reverb alot in that piece, I hope you will see the kind of effects reverb can have on songs.

4/5 from me DSMagnum, keep them coming!

DSMagnum responds:

The guitars are some that I made from a preset guitar in Garageband. I have tried adding distortion, but that would mean I would have to give something up. I could try something though.

As for background support, I only really focused on the drums and the bass. Those were the only things I was concerned about. I'll consider that in my next piece.

I have used reverb before, but I rarely have it very high. I normally keep the echo and reverb in my songs low.

About your new piece, I saw it the other day, and I quite liked it. I'll drop a review for you.

Thanks for the wonderful review! I'll keep what you said at mind.
