I really can't add much that RealFaction hasn't already addressed. I feel the bass synth in the beginning is a little too loud. Overall the sound is a bit dry and generic. That could be the drums not doing much justice. They're very flat. Need a little more space -- reverb, eq, compression.
I really don't like the bass at all. The legato is no problem. The melodic content just doesn't make much sense to me and is quite repetitive. Sounds like a filter pattern and I just don't really enjoy it. Also is too loud at points relative to the rest of the track. Toward the end, as you introduce more elements, the bass fits in much better. It just simply doesn't do it for me as a stand alone melodic staple.
I can't judge whether it fits the art or not as I'm not familiar with this character. RealFaction thinks so, so I'll give a pass on that entirely.
I can't say it's bad, but I can't say it's great. It did get stuck in my head though, so there's that!
I like the drums and the background arp synths going on, though i feel they are slightly too dry, which you could fix by adding reverb to the drums and the arp synth (the one that's tapping in the background). Mixing is pretty good too, but the bass synth I feel could use another layer or too, something to make it less simplistic and to make it pop more.
I could say this reflects the picture, considering I know what game series the character is from and this would go good in the game, and reflects her look well. But one real setback of this piece is the repetitiveness of it, it really needs more changeups to make it more interesting for the listener, but I easily get tired of it repeating the same melodies too much. 40 seconds in, that lead could be turned up a little more and you were going in an interesting direction, but then you took it out, why?
It was just about to get more interesting but that was such a sudden introduction to a new element and you took it right out, almost making it have no meaning in the song, it could have been a lot longer. An improved bass synth and less repetitive melody or so would bring this song's potential more. It's not a bad piece, but has room for much improvement. Not bad.
Oki. That's the best I could. But, thanks for the advice and for your review.
You may only use this piece for commercial purposes if your work is a web-based game or animation, otherwise you must make specific arrangements with the artist.
