I like this song :) It's very dreamy... considering it has very calm melodies....

Noisysundae responds:

Thanks to the stereo effect and reverb! However, it sounds bad when listening in mono. Should do another set-up to achieve a decent sound in mono.

This song sure seems to have...SHATTERED expectations! :D
(Thrown out the window)

In all seriousness though, great work finding a balance between a peaceful synth melody and satisfying beats/stronger synths.

As well on a side note, this song makes me think of an Angel soaring casually though the sky, only to start aggressively start head banging when the song comes on. :P

Keep it up!

I like when the glass cracked sound effect dropped. Really dope! keep making like this.

Noisysundae responds:

I'll try. XD
I found out that the glass sound effect is very slick in reverse thanks to this track.

Wow this is actually really good!! Good job with the EQing and sound design. I like the slow progression. Nice m8.

Noisysundae responds:

Thanks a bunch man. For this track, I spent time working on mastering the most.

I like the intro, though it's really slow. Your samples are on point. I do like the light, airy feeling. the piano is nice. Everything is pretty much spot on. It could use a master, just to give it that extra boost, as long as the dynamic range isn't too bad. I'm a sucker for side chained saws. I really like your clap/snare sample.

I personally wouldn't use as much arpeggio, but that's just me. Over all it's pretty good track. I can hear the effort that was put in.

Noisysundae responds:

I saw you being too lazy to remove the reply. XD

I was thinking about shrinking the intro to about half of its length, but the result sounds weird and rushed. Another thing is, that's the lead saw with a lowpass filter and a heavy reverb, no piano harmed during the production. :P

I keep the loudness of all my pieces within -12 to -13 dB since I've heard about the loudness war. Also, I'm a lot more comfortable working in the lower levels. This piece has -17 dB loudness unmastered, and it makes mixing much easier.

It took me hours adjusting the sidechain, though. It's something you can easily imagine, but hard to make it sounds about right. And thanks for the compliment on the snare. I tried to pick a sample focused in the mid range and threw it into a short reverb. That could be why it sounds like a clap for you. :)
