I thought I would do a song inspired by some of the recent synthwave movement going on.

I did a full-on animation for this and it's on NG.

Hope you like this

Right from the get-go I noticed clipping caused by how loud your piece is. Please, if you don't know how, do not mix your track this loudly. The loudness war is over, you don't (and can't) compete with million dollar studios on that level so don't bother, be BETTER than them, give your song more dynamic range!

I really liked the synths in this, how they ebbed and flowed round the chords in the background. The drums are mixed well to fit the rest and nothing sounds out of place.
This track has a great "vibe" to it which is never lost but evolves in a satisfying way throughout. At times, when you drop an instrument out I immediately miss that instrument and the piece makes me yearn for it (which is good) and then when it returns I feel happy.
However, by the 2 minute mark I'm starting to get a little stir crazy and looking for something new to add. You would have scored higher if you'd added a little something that reinvigorated my attention.

Honestly, the composition and sound design is good but you need to sort out that loudness.

First of all, there shouldn't be any clipping because it peaks at 0db. I think you're hearing the saturation I put on the chords at the beginning, which I think I overdid.

I'm glad you liked the the sound design and the composition. After a certain amount of time I kinda get stuck on composition because it gets harder for me to add new stuff, so there's something I could work on.

But yeah, hope I make it in next time, thanks

Awesome song! Probally gonna use this in a gd level. XD

BeeFef responds:
