i love happy hardcore/ breacktrance but this is slow. I love the melod but it is to slow for me. The syth was exelent, the beat was great.
Yes, it is very nostalgic, because the beginning reminds me of a loop that would play on some map in MapleStory, and the rest reminds me of the great moments in the pokemon games. But when the christmas shaker came in... ahhh I can't describe it in words, but it made my day. =)
Perfect the way it is!
5/5, 10/10, and DL'd
You create a new world for Mario with this man!!!! lol
5/5 and downloaded
ideas !! :]
haha i love this dude.. I seriously believe this should go into Mario - Cart or any of the Mario games, especially old school ones on N64......... anyway well I made a new account because I decided I was going to step to a higher lvl and atempt make really good music....I have the first of the new dj-viz songs up there.....checkit out... I know you'll see a big improvement on this one, i put a ton of effort into it.
That's what comes to mind when I hear this, not MapleStory or Mario like other ppl said, but Pokemon... Mostly because of the start. This is really calm and soothing, but it sounds... midi-ish...
Very well job on the pad works here, the wind in this song is just like a real wind, and you make it swing into the track perfectly. I could like to see something to go besides it, though, some sound effects maybe? I don't know what kind, but something that fits the super-happy tivoli feeling of this. The pad in the start sounds like it's being tortured, it's wobbling and flipping out, if you had a cleaner, more straightforward version of that pad and used that instead it would sound much better. I like the sweeps here too, which does mix with the wind that comes after it.
For the leads, there aren't many, but what I can hear is good. It would've been great if you had a melancholic lead after a while to give a little contrast to the whole sweet feeling of this, which may get a bit lame after a while.
I like the sequence elements and low-sustained synth hits, they have great melodies and are really well diversed.
The drums, now THAT is something really noticable! The drum work is so great and fits the track so much! Patterns suit melodies and fits in where there wasn't nything before. Awesome job man! I loved everything about the percussion except the generic christmas shaker things, which gets a bit intense after a while.
The build up is ok. Nothing of another world, but it really lacks a good start and ending. Sometimes you need to make something that sounds like a start and ending instead of beginning in medias res and ending by simply fading every instrument out after each other. It would add much more meat to the bone and give a really professional feeling if you made the start and ending different from the rest of the track.. I personally forget this too much, too, it's hard, but you should really try.
Great song though! Professionally done. You really did an awesome job on making this track.
Pokemon....I hate that show. About the midi part...yeah I figured out how to convert all midi stuff to real instruments with my music program recently. That's why "system override" sounds not midi like. I thought the christmas shaker would give ppl the happy feeling...the jolly feeling. I guess the warbly sound you heard at the start may sound like torture, but it could be a sound a kid (like 6-10 years of age) might like. I tried to make this as childish as possible. Not sure what you want me to do with the start and ending. My songs don't really have a start since they keep on changing themes throughout the song. This song had 3 separate themes so I guess 3 starts and 3 ends? This is one of the rare tracks I made that actually has decent clarity. Still some have told me not clear enough so I still need lots of improving. Thanks for the review. Reminds me of karco style reviews. Bye for now
