Sharpedo is leveling up!
Thanks. It wasn't really meant to this but if you think so. I have a feeling you enjoyed it according to this. Thank you.
(Ehh, another Pokemon player...;D)
The loop is smooth and the mood here is very bright and fun. I can tell it's mastered very loudly, and I can hear all of the instruments clearly. However, I think the snare is a little weak throughout the piece. I would've liked to hear a stronger off-beat (generally, the snare and/or clap should be the loudest sound in the mix). The melody is also a little all-over-the-place tonally. You display a good sense of harmony for the first half of the piece, and while there aren't any clashing notes or dissonances later on, the melody is a bit too frantic and involved for the casual listener to grasp onto it. It's just a little over-stimulating. I'd suggest repeating a couple of pitch patterns within the melodic section from :29 to the end, and simplifying the rhythm. That way, your melodies will be more memorable and catchy. Overall good work! Keep at it, Csucskos! ^^
Yes. I've realised long time ago that I can't make catchy music. The reason is: I don't want to make too simple music. So I change the melody here and there, put some bonus instruments in,add a different melody to the bass than the main melody, twist the rhytm a bit and so on. After this I find that the whole song is a mess and there's no real melody. But for me everything is clear (or nearly ;D) because I've heard it many times during the making. This is the problem I guess... Simple but still valuable music making. It is hard. (I don't want to be cocky. I know that sometimes only the piano plays and the notes are all eighths. Hey, I'm lazy! I really don't feel the balance.)
Simplifying the rhythm... Last time you complained about the monotone rhythm, and now... ;) I'll look for the good balance anyways.
All in all I'm really grateful for your comments and I'm sure they will help me. Thank you.
