Saying Goodbye

First song on 2018. A bit late, but it's done. FL Studio may have said it only took me 11 hours of collective work but I started this project back in November! I worked on this song in between college work and I gotta say I'm very happy with how it turned out. And although I'm very happy that it came out great, I really want to try different scales. If it hasn't been obvious my last couple of tracks have all been written in C Major, so hopefully my next song will try something new!

Nevertheless, hope you guys enjoyed this track!

As usual, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

VSTs I used:

3x Osc

BPM: 128

This track was produced on FL Studio 12.5

The synth at the beginning is cute, and leaves you a lot of room for climax and dynamic contrast. The chord progression is a textbook cliche, and the progression is quite slow. Some of your drums samples (like the open hat and clap) are also pretty generic. I liked the blissful, climactic part at the 1-minute mark. That said, you seem to have arpeggios in place of melodic content in this piece, which doesn’t quite satisfy my criteria. I liked the re-intro at 1:45, although I would’ve liked to see the progression work a bit faster than in the first half of the piece. I think you could’ve done a lot more to vary the piece during the second half, as structurally the two halves of the piece are VERY similar. Overall, it’s a cute piece with some solid mastering and a decent atmosphere, but it needs more prominent melodic content and a more creative arrangement, sound design, and progression. Keep at it, Gawne!

Thanks for the feedback!
Although I don't have a whole lot of time for music anymore, I'll try to remember what you said for future tracks...

I like this...

fingernatorgator responds:

Glad you like it!

I really like it! I personally think it is harder to do songs in major keys, so you did a good job! I do think you could change up the melody a bit more though. Great work!

fingernatorgator responds:

Thanks for the feedback!
I'm glad you enjoyed my song! I will agree that the melody was pretty much the same throughout the entire song, so I improvised by adding different synths that are playing the same exact notes just to make it sound slightly more different. But yeah, noted for my next song.
