Electricity V2

Author Comments

My last track for this year.
I made the first version in kinda pupillary program NanoStudio and now decided to remix it in FL. NanoStudio is actually simpler than FL - for example, it has only 3 effect slots without such effects as flanger, phaser and filter. Also in NanoStudio I couldn't make automation clips. Well, actually could but I couldn't change the form or tension of the curve.
I think now I know enough to compare two versions of Electricity. Actually I don't think the first version is better, but I cannot say that the first version is worse. Cuz in the first version I really tried my best to be always proud of my first published track and now I'm proud of it too. So, leave the comments and tell me what d'you think about this: which version is better - the first or the second?
Why I called it Electricity? Well, I don't know. When I composed the first Electricity and when I had to invent a name for my song I took just the first word that appeared in my head. Maybe cuz electricity is that main point that makes my computer work so I'm able to make music. :-)


Way better than you last track and your last track was really good. I love the tambourine and the clapping you added also.

I like it! I definitely enjoy how the main melody fits with the pseudo-flute instrument -- makes the whole track even more surreal.

As for the mixing, my above statement might have been different if the bass were a bit higher, as all I COULD hear was the main melody (my speakers might also be a reason for this >.< ) but the bass definitely could have been turned up maybe a few tenths of a decibel, maybe one or two decibels.

Still, beautiful regardless!

Amahiko responds:

All that I can advice you - just to turn on the bass booster on your player (if your player has such a function).

I like it! It has that peaceful vibe and it's makes me wanna dance :D

What DAW and which plugins do you use?

Amahiko responds:

Heh... well, all my "DAW" is just a labtop and headphones! :D You can find some pictures on my Instagram page.
Which plugins? Well, my favoriteplugins are FM8, Massive and Sytrus. Exactly in this one I used them many times.

Sounds pretty good. The mixing is a bit off and occasionally the sound is a bit too sharp and can be slightly hard to listen to. The tune itself sounds a bit like a song from the doctor who soundtrack (song for ten) of course, that song was an orchestral pop song and this is more of a video game song. The melodies are slightly forgettable despite how loud they are in the mix. I'd suggest working on your mixing and making the melodies "sit" properly with the rest of the instruments. It sounds a lot better than the first Electricity however the first Electricity had some very nice Sawtooth bass and square arpeggios which would have sounded very nice in this remake.

Amahiko responds:

Really? I actually don't know about doctor who, just heard the title somewhere... But all the melodies in it I invented myself.
About mixing and the way how the melodies "sit" - well, actually, it's just the way how I usually do it. But I agree that mixing is not perfect in this. Now when I listen to it I notice many mistakes. Maybe because now I'm more experienced and advanced in it...
But all in all thanks!
