Really a great piece of work, keep it up!
The intro was one of the best intro's i've ever heard, it was so smooth and melodic, but this is actually a happy hardcore thats extremely melodic. Wtf? The strings at the intro were amazing, they are like filtered low, and then the beat matches the synth melody, very smart mate. :) Ah you use pianos in trance too? I do also, they are great once you know how to use them, they can add alot of atmosphere, variety and ambience to a trance track, which is what is required in most tracks, maybe not here, but the piano only makes this track better. The bass was nice, really hardcore style, and the melody had so much variety, you almost combined a subsynth and a lead synth together which is almost impossible. That being said, well done. ;) The only thing wrong i could point out was the kick, it was too high end and not pumpy enough, but i'm not hardcore expert, maybe this is the way it should be, but as a melodic and raver trance guy thats what disappointed me a little bit, but the overall track is solid, well made and yet another piece of genius from MR. CornandBeans.
Cheers mate, any chance you'd check out my audio?
yeah... i don't know much bout the technical stuff, but it sounds great
Wow. Short. 21 Days.
Back to daily flow?
From the top:
Rushing violin, sounding lonly as the title applies. Then the piano, a simple element, bursts in to some great stuff. Then some....ZZZZZ.....wow....ambient hardcore was more like it....OVERALL:
CPU Problems? That's too bad. =(
Still, though, I can barely THINK of making a song as good as this, anyway, and you did a pretty good job with this. If you nearly maxed out your CPU, that means you must have been trying hard in my opinion... 10 under effort for you. ;)
Your melody is pretty good, and I can see why you'd call the song happy hardcore though I wouldn't call it that. This actually reminds me of your song Flying Away a bit. One other thing is when the lead synth changes for the second time, it sounds offbeat, though it's definitely a good attempt at creative rhythms. ;)
Your harmonies are good, though lacking. I'm assuming you weren't finished with them and would have made them even better than they were if it weren't for the CPU. Still, they're well-done.
Your percussion is great as always and I'm hearing that awesome kick which seems to be a staple in your style lately... I'm too lazy to check your other more recent songs. =P
Your synth choice and drums are all very good, no problems here. I especially like the synth that comes in, for example, at 0:50, and fades out around 0:58, great choice there.
You definitely gave it that "rave" feeling at times... great job there. Nothing else to add.
A good song for something you couldn't finish! Keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to more. =)
