Hi there! :) I review/criticize tracks on the audio portal in three categories:
- Mixing (Technical part, volume, frequency balance, etc.)
- Composition (Melody, chord progression, intervals, etc.)
- Feeling (Basically what I feel while listening)
Remember, this is all my personal opinion ;) I listen with a Sennheiser 650 HD headphone.
I apologize in advanced for my English :D
Nice job on the reverb. It sounds big and open :) Maybe you can play around with the stereo image. All the sounds are centered in the middle, and I could get a little more interesting if you play around with the panning. But overall, the mix is nice :)
The progression is kind of simple, but the melody’s and the harmonics you use are kind of weird and unexpected. Sometimes the melody and piano lines are a bit close, dissonance, but it still remains pleasant.
In my opinion this would fit great for a mid-evil/fantasy game. Still, I have something to notice about the sounds you are using. They sound kind of midi, no real dynamic. And the ritme of the piano is straight on the beat, no alternation. It sounds like it has been made on the computer, while it are real instruments that are supposed to be played by people, and people aren’t perfect like a computer ;) Tip: Try to play around with midi-grooves, velocity and gain automation. This would give the track even more magic ^^
Overall opinion: Like it :) Keep up the good work!
Rating: 4 stars.
In fact,I didn't know how to adjust the pan with Caustic at that time...Now I understand it.However,the music is just a mess. XD
About coposition,the advice is professional and helpful.I'll make the melody better.
You can get this feelling is because I couldn't use automation at that time(It means that I didn't make full use of Caustic)...
Besides,Caustic can't change music's BPM...
Your advice is useful and professional.Thank you so much^o^
