This is pretty good. But as Gween said, it's mixed fairly quiet and low. I, for one, don't mind the arpeggios lasting as long as they did. Could have done with some variation, but as a theme, it's functional and it works well.
The chord that he mentions though sounds fine to me. 9ths are always pretty weird, hah.
The kit could be slightly beefier. I'm not talking massive, but it could definitely benefit from some other samples layered that could give it the timbre and color it deserves to mesh even better.
Bassline is pretty smooth. Would suggest a bit more crunch to the top layer and a mid layer to give it some more depth. Harmonic differences in your layers could really make it shine where it needs to - some resonance filtering, a notch filter and band pass that could really make it whirl.
Nonetheless, in its current form, very chill. I can dig it. I was right when I saw potential.
Haha, thanks! The thing is, I use garageband, (a very old version anyway :P) so I can't really do much about the mixing (other than the volume and I will work on that) and you can't exactly do much about crunching and sampling drum sounds, but thanks for the recommendations! I appreciate it! :D
Everything works out fairly unique~ My only few qualms is that the arpeggios get a little stale before they fade out-- the mix is a little quiet--and toward the end (roughly 3:10) there seems to be a chord out of place (the second in the pattern). One that's major that would be a little more harmonious if it were minor.
Thanks for the feedback! I learned that every chord in the pattern is intended to be minor, and I even checked that chord and it IS minor (It may sound major because of the fact that it's a ninth) and that exact chord is played with the same voice in every single repetition of the chord pattern anyway. But thanks for your opinion anyway! :)
