I like the cute synths and progression. You have a good sense of rhythm and harmony. One thing I would warn you about is that some of the synths sounded a little too high-pitched and harsh, especially the one that comes in at :28. I think you needed a smoother transition at :42. The synths, while cute, are a little dry. Some reverb might help, but you may also need some less-pizzicato-y content in there. I think some drums would've really helped with some of the transitions (especially some crashes), as well as increasing the energy and drive of the piece a bit. I know this piece is supposed to loop, but there are a couple of seconds of silence at the end that sort of ruin that prospect. It sounds like you uploaded it with a wrapped remainder, but accidentally left a blank measure of two at the end. Either way, I think the simplicity detracts from this piece a bit. Your mixing isn't bad, but on the other hand it's hard to screw up the mixing when your piece is so dry and thin-textured. You could really make this piece excellent by spicing it up with some drums, effects, and pads, but until then it's a humble yet cute track that's certainly fitting for a videogame. :3 Keep at it, Sheeepie2. ;)
Thanks for the review :) I made this with LMMS, which I found it hard to find reverb and efects features (if there were any) However, my dad bought me FL Studio 12 this week, which I've found to be a lot easier to use, so I might try to do a remake of this piece with a thicker texture.
It's so hard to get a good drum pattern though :P
At first I thought a few notes were out of place but then the melody grew on me, I like the melody. Reminds me of some old MS-DOS/Windows 95 games I used to play (I like that kind of music). Mostly it's good menu music for an older sounding game, though it would sound better if it looped. I don't think this needs percussion though.
It kinda has this popping noise though but I'm not sure if that can be helped, I honestly forget if old game music did that or not. Reminds me of the old PC point 'n' click games I used to play as a young lad. The more I listen to this, the more it grows on me. Well done. It's kind of catchy.
Thanks. Now I come to think of it, I don't think it needs percussion either. Well, not a lot.
