So, I had this melody floating around in my head and I finally made a song out of it. This was sort of an experimental song for me because it was my first time attempting vocal chops. They turned out alright, but next time I think a little more variety in the vocal chops would be nice. I would say that this is probably my best song yet. At least, its definitely my favourite. I hope you enjoy and any feedback is appreciated.

The ending is pretty out of context IMO. Also, at about 00:52, the vocals are way too loud. You need to introduce some other elements there as well, because it sounds pretty empty to me. I think the lead at the drop needs a nice, gritty bass under it to make it sound denser and more rich. Most importantly, above all, the thing that bothers me the most about any song ever... FL BASIC DRUMS. It's really not that hard to go on the internet and find some nice drum samples for 10 bucks. Don't have the money? There are hundreds of thousands of free, quality samples out there. But please, don't use FL Basic Drums. Even FL comes with some other drums that are somewhat usable, but the basic drums are terrible and overused. Unprocessed FL Basic drums do not sound good. Don't make the mistake of using them again. The mix in this could be better.

Overall, this song's alright. 3/5 :)

P.S. you may have noticed I'm not doing my usual criticism praise format. i'm just doing criticism now

Thanks for the criticism. Something you should know though: I did use some non-FL drums. I have a whole HUGE free pack of drum samples. Some of the drums, like I think maybe one of the claps, is the basic drums, but I put a bunch of different ones in there too, so idk. :P Also, something I noticed is that the song sounds better overall in the actual FLP than in the export, so maybe I'm accidentally exporting it at a lower quality. :P

this song is very beautiful! <3
