Most of the stuff i do is beats and loops so I tried to write an actual song for the NGUAC. Comments/Feedback appreciated

I like the pensive mood at the beginning and the beat that comes in shortly after. I think the piano sample sounds pretty generic - I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that’s FL Keys. The progression of this piece isn’t bad, and you do a good job of using the entire frequency range throughout. I think it might need some more structural variety, because right now it has a bit of a dull sense of continuity. Stripping away the beat at some point could really help give this piece more shape, for example. I also think that the high-pitched synth at 1:06 doesn’t have a lot of clarity in the mix - the notes just sound a bit indistinct. It might be that you went a little overboard on the reverb, or that you should be more careful about how you equalize other instruments in the treble range. You have a good sense of harmony and flow, but there’s not a lot of strong melodic content here - most of it is fleeting and minimal. I do like the production quality overall, and the mood and atmosphere are both amusing. My main issue here is that the composition is pretty underwhelming. I’d encourage you to flesh out the structure and also provide some stronger melodies. Keep at it, KnockVoltage! :)


KnockVoltage responds:

Thanks a lot for all of the advice. You nailed the piano as being FL Keys. That's usually my go to when I get stuck on melodies/chords. I'll try to move away from that as I get better at composing. Melodic composition has always been one of my biggest issues, which is one of the reasons I ended up moving towards beats instead of songs. I'll go for stronger melodies and more structure in the next round. Thanks again
