Yesterday I started writing the chords, and designing the synths of the first thirty seconds. Today I finished the track. And I'm very happy with the result.

This song is also meant to be in the background of a video game with a space theme, which you'll hear about when it's published.

As I still am quite a newbie, I'd love to hear what can be improved. If you like my music, why not consider to become a fan? If you want to use this song commercially, PM me!

This is pretty dope, actually. I like the pads and the feel of the track. Fits very well with that space theme that you were going for. I also enjoy how the song evolves, not really sticking to one section for too long while keeping things flowing. I also enjoy that acid bass that you have going on underneath in the beginning, though I don't feel like it fits in with the rest of the track as it's only used the one time.

To be a bit nitpicky, the track does end pretty abruptly. It's fine for a loop, but on it's own, I feel like you could have made a little bit of an outro for the NG version, maybe? Another thing is that, I believe the higher frequencies are a bit loud and should be turned down just a smidge. Those bell-like arps you have going on in the background start to hurt the ears after a while and could benefit from being turned down a bit or even EQ'd a bit, cutting off the ear piercing frequencies. I also feel like the guitar wasn't double-tracked, or having one guitar signal panned to the left and another to the right, I feel like that would've helped with mixing that guitar in, as it's pretty muffled underneath everything else.

Since I had to really search for that stuff to criticize, I do believe this track is fantastic. Does what it needs to do and doesn't get too repetitive in those 3 minutes. Great job on this and good luck with that game!

Everything you said is completely new to me, but it makes sense, and I hear it now. Thanks for the constructive criticism and the effort you put in writing this! I really appreciate it.
