For the NIM Contest.
This is for the Menu Music category.

If you would like me to add percussion, just ask and I'll try.
This is my first time with electronic music and my first time with LMMS, which is completely new to me, considering I used finale notepad before, which uses staves.

Could you please review, and suggest any changes/improvements/additions I should make.


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.

People find this review helpful!

Thanks. Now I come to think of it, I don't think it needs percussion either. Well, not a lot.
