Wow! i never thought i'd find something this awesome in the hashtags, but this is fantastic especially for your first time at this style. I love the chords in the drop and how there's a lowpass thing on them. The rhythm isn't super original, but it sounds good and fits perfectly.
On the other hand, there is this 8bit sweep composed of triangle waves (I think?) it sounds good, but the notes don't seem to fit with the key of the song. It's almost like it's a sample from another song with a different key signature was put into this song. Maybe pitch it down 4 half steps or something. Idk if that will work, so just pitch it somewhere that sounds on key.
Another thing is the vocal samples. The main thing is that they stand out too much, and what you can do to them has been mentioned in the comment below.
Really cool song though, keep it up m8 :)
Yeah, I usually use samples for my effects. I really should practice making my own, or at least put them in key. Also now that you mentioned it I could have made the vocals fit a little better as well. Thanks for the review, I found this quite helpful!
I like it, it reminds me of the Porter Robinson style of electro on his worlds album. If i may say something that hopefully helps in the future is that when you are using vocal shouts, or any sample which sounds almost to "clean" compared to the rest of the track (which is a good track, and has a good human sound to it) try with messing with the sample. I like to pitch it up/down an octave, and or use some bit crusher on them.
Another thing you may like to do to shouts such as these are add a heck of a lot of reverb, then control the automation of the wet/dry on your reverb to make each sample sound a little more unique. Just my two cents.
Besides that the mix is really good, and the melody is catchy and has good breathing room before each giant synth lead hit. Great job. i was going to give it a 3.75/5 since its almost really really great but the review stars don't let that happen. so i voted a 4 on the side and a 3.5 on here ;)
Thanks for the review! This was actually really helpful, I'll definitely be trying those vocal ideas. I'm glad you enjoyed this song, and thanks for the good score! :)
