I was fooling around. IF YOU ARE RATING THIS POORLY, REVIEW AND TELL ME HOW I CAN IMPROVE.

Enjoyable and catchy

Adds a nice beat to an otherwise slightly above average piece. Emphasis on dramatic portions exaggerates the darkness but in a good way. Overall, nice new spin on this tune.

Haha

It's quite funny, but kind of cool too in a way. The idea again is very nice. But the sound quality isn't that very good.. Well it's decent. The build-up is decent too.

Nice idea

See ya,

The sound quality sucks... I know how to use the mixer now! A re-do someday, maybe

Great idea, but could be improved further...

Crazy idea for a techno remix! Just crazy enough to work...

I liked the way it started. I like the minor key part that comes in around the 1 min mark.

But within those 2 halves, it just kinda seems like there's not an awful lot of progression. I did like the electronic pulsing note that fades in and introduces the 2nd part.

But really, I just would've liked to hear a few more prominent variations. Maybe some more layers.

Also, the beats kinda sound overpowering to me.

Don't get me wrong - I enjoyed it. Just pointing out the flaws.

THANK YOU!
This was made before I learned how to use FL Studio's mixer feature. I might do a Fix in the next few days. Thanks for listening/reviewing.

very funny

i like it, it sounds nice and i find it funny!
and i'm not ok with cornandbeans (even if i love his songs) i find using a plucked instrument is much more original and funny than using a piano

hmm

Well it's not perfect, but you've got some good ideas.

First thing I would change is that kick... it sounds really clicky and too full of resonance. Try using a punchier sample, or try to compress it and sidechain it a bit. It's too blunt to be honest, and a little bit of that could fill up the space.

The synths kinda sounded like presets.. There's nothing wrong if they sound good where they are, but they don't sound fitting. They're too filtered and phasey. You need something that will stand out, something closer to a saw wave. You can do that easily with 3xosc. (I'm assuming you're using FL studio) Throw a bit of reverb and chorus on it, maybe compress it to add some sustain. It'll give it more of an anthem-type sound, which would be fitting for something like LOTR.

The bass is ok, but it sounds too poppy and cheesy. If you want a really thick bass, use 3xosc again and play around with sqaures and saws (be sure to turn all the coarse pitch knobs to zero) and the cutoff envelope with some resonance.

Back to the drums. Your samples aren't that great, but it's hard to find good ones. Look in the Vintage pack (it's already in fl studio) for the open hi-hat 2 and a clap. There's some nice closed hi hats there, too. Try adding some reverb to your claps. You get a more defined groove, plus it adds a lot of space to your tracks. ;)

One more thing, and that's the plucked instrument you're using. It sounds really bland and clicky, maybe a piano would work better. You could always compress it too, maybe add some reverb as well. That's become a habit for me, at least. :P

Hope I don't sound like a snob... I'm just trying to help.

endlessnumber responds:

You don't sound like a snob; this is exactly what I was hoping to hear.

Unfortunately, I know nothing about 3xosc, "throwing reverb/chorus" on things, or compressing stuff. Your only option is to email me (endlessnumber@yahoo.com) or let me wallow in my nubbishness. Take your pick.
