This song may not really sound coherent because of 2 different parts. But I like how it sounds now, especially the second part.
I've finished this in a rush for the Newgrounds Audio Underdog Contest (NGAUC). I won't have time to do more stuff in the next two/three days, before the deadline ends.

I actually never do this even though I should because it is stated in the Newgrounds Terms of Use for Audio.
So here is a list of what I've used:

- FL Studio 12.3 beta 5
- 3x Osc
- Absynth 5
- Music Box by SonicCouture (it's free for the full version of Kontakt 5)
- Massive (for the sub bass only)
- Kontakt Factory Library (just the string instruments)
- Alicia's Keys
- Serum (only for the rising synth in the Drum and Bass part)
- FPC HQ funk kit (toms only)
- Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass
- Super Audio Cart
- All drum samples I have used are royalty free and are from different packs I've found on the interwebs

- FL stock effects (Maximus, Parametric EQ2, Free Filter, Reverb 2, Effector, etc.)
- OTT (Xfer records)
- George Yohng's W1 limiter 2.0 (Free)
- Transient Master (Native Instruments)
- SerumFX

... and 9 hours of work which is pretty fast for me.

Anyway, I hope you like and enjoy it! Thanks for listening of course. (:

so cool!!!!! wish it was longer :(


Wow. This one's cool. =D

The start's quite energetic and happy! After that is a calm, tranquil breakdown.
Right after that, there's a funky, classy glitch hop part which I really like.
That part had a creative mix of instruments. =)

Ending's quite short, though. A bit of a longer ending would've been nice. ^_^

All in all, great track! Nice work.

Huge thanks dude! :D

Hey, Aeron! Thought I'd drop a review for ya!

First off, this chord progression is definitely really interesting, as usual! There are tons of super strange and unexpected harmonies I'm hearing, and I absolutely adore it! The eccentricity of the harmonics here definitely make this track sound out!

The two-section trick you did here is really cool! It's kind of the same thing I heard in LunacyEcho's Velcro back a year ago, except backwards and also much more creative and unique. I'd say you did a good job with the transition, and the section itself resembles the first part of the track enough to feel coherent to my ears. :)

The soundscape here... man, you never cease to amaze me! The sounds here are all so good, and so well mixed, as usual for you! It's evident how much thought you put into each sound and how it works cohesively in the mix - with the end in mind!

My only big gripe with the track is how it ended - quantization to the finish isn't something you hear everyday, but it's not exactly the most conclusive or creative ending approach, either. Plus, it kinda comes out of nowhere :/

In the end, though, this is a really solid entry! We're both All-Stars members, so we're against each other, but man, this is too good! 9/10, 5/5, good luck, man! ;)

AeronMusic responds:

Heyo 1f1n1ty!
I can hear why it sounds kind of random but I quite like those endings.
And yeah I like to put detail in my mixing, it's what I try to achieve with every release, and I am happy it worked out very well in this one too.
Thanks a lot for such a big review! I really appreciate it! (:
