=== This is an NGAUC Audition Round Review ===
So, I have to commend you on two different things. First the melody you use is pretty good! I mean, the instrument is pretty goofy, but the melody isn't bad at all, and it's definitely really really happy! :D The second thing that I really like is that crazy buildup to the drop/chrous that has the pitched up snares. That's super cool, and I really enjoyed it every time you did it. However, the biggest problem with this track, and it is a very serious problem indeed, is that it is just TOO DARN REPETITIVE! If you would have only had that main melody like 3-4 times throughout the song, it would have been great! As is, the melody wears out its welcome really quickly.
Mini-scores (See http://johnfn.newgrounds.com/news/post/936953 for what this means and how to improve)
Overall (this is not an average): 6/10
Thanks! I'm glad to know what you thought of my song, it's great feedback, and it really helps. I'm definitely going to be taking in all of this advice to the best of my ability, and I look forward to competing next year :D
(just saying tho, you may wanna add me to the pm list if you haven't already because I am VERRRRY forgetful XD)
I'm not that big of a fan of really happy music, so I can't really comment on the melody.
Having two different lead sounds would help with the repetitiveness, since that one lead sound plays pretty much all the time. Just having a few parts where the lead doesn't play or has a new sound, can do wonders.
The drums are a bit unbalanced. I can only really hear the kick and cymbals, as for clap/snare I can't hear almost at all.
Other than that, good job.
Thanks for your feedback, I'm really trying to work on that stuff as it is, so try to expect something better when I make my next track ;)
This one had me going a bit. This wasn't half bad but it still needs work. For this one only the bass parts were a bit too strong and your lead on this one was a bit repetitive but your rhythm was fine. Your mixing and mastering wasn't good either. What program are you using? Let me know and not a bad sound you have here.
Well, since I'm a young producer and don't really have the money to get the more professional programs, the best I can do is LMMS, and it's decent, but it's not up to the modern standard quite yet. I'm aware that my melodies are a bit repetitive, and I'll be working on it in the future, as well as my mixing :)
