Like Kwing mentioned, this is a nice, quiet videogame tune. I actually really like it but for some mix issues.

Minus half a star for some occasional clipping like at 0:18. It sounds like some things are mixed too loudly and your reverb on your keys is way too loud up in the send -- or has too much low mid, contributing to a very muddy sound. I notice this throughout where you use reverb.

That said, your lead writing is good. By 1:14 it sounds like a limiter has been clapped on without concern to mixing the track itself properly, as I still hear clipping occasionally, especially when your lead gets to doing its thang.

I notice throughout your lead is far too up in the mix, drowning out even the drums.

Protip, before you apply any FX to the master channel, make sure the entirety of your track peaks no higher than about -6 dB. Mastering services almost universally recommend this as it allows you the freedom to shape the mix as you desire without sacrificing clarity. If your mix sounds good there, it will sound good at any volume, and most importantly BETTER when properly mastered.

Great work otherwise. Thanks for turning out to NGUAC!

This works as a soundscape more than as a piece of music. Nothing about this is super attention-grabbing, but this would be very effective as a piece of background music due to how quiet and inoffensive it is.

Hey! Thanks for your reply! When I was making this, I was reading up on ambient video game type music so that is honestly the type of comment i was looking for.

Nice job! I like this a lot. I find it very catchy!

This is really nice and Chill, I love it. The only reason for the .5 off is because the arp gets old.
