Something new I mixed. I hope you like it!



It's really offbeat, the strings and the drums do not match at all.

And there ends the asshole portion of my review.

In Fruity Loops, in the song - creator thingy, where there are blocks n shit to add the patterns you make to the song (assuming that's how you go about it) click on the icon towards the right at the top of that window to pull up a menu that'll say things like "line", "column", and "row". Click the one under those that says "Cell".

When you add new things into the beat, make sure it's after 4 or 8 measures of the other beats playing together for a while. And make sure it starts right on the line of the cell (the cells are the small blocks)

I hope you understand that, because you make good melodies and beats, but can't string them together as well as you have the potential to. If you do that, then you will become GREAT with music.

I don't have fruity loops though, but since I have my own computer now, I can take more time with music than I did in town. I also have more opportunities to do some training but I need to find more convinent time when im not disturbed or too tired. But next time I submit another track, it will be better than what I posted in the past. Thanks.


strings arent well synced with the drums ino - at least not when they come in. Drums are kinda cool tho - remind me of a typewriter. the glissy synth tho imo needs to be toned down a bit.. kinda takes too much attention away. Dunno everything seems to come in just slightly too soon. I think you need to harmonize your drums more - sounds REALLY cool tho when the second drumline and the bass come in tho. Parts are still a bit awkward tho - like when the drums pause - I actually thought the song was looping again.

I feel this has potential to be somethig really cool tho - I really like when that additional synth fades in - that was very well implemented imo - and perfectly placed. I also feel this song could use a bit more direction on your part instead of just adding and seeing where it goes. Remember - you listenni to it a billion times while making it will give you a different perspective of how everyone else sees it :P

First of all, I think your right about the drums stuff. I need to be more aware of that. Thanks for reminding me.

I listen to lots of stuff when it comes to digital music. Especally the videogame music where I love to download them too. I will try to do more this year so please look out for more stuff in 2008. Thanks Shawn.
