72 patterns, a whole lot of redoing...and finally this...


no beat?

yeh, i'm on with larry, this ain't my bag but...
was waiting the whole way through for a big ass beat to come in but it never does...

IamMark responds:

Yeah, I know what you mean, it does seem to build up a lot to not really do anything. I guess you could call it writers block. After listening to it as many times as I have I think I was concentrating more on just finishing it than anything else.

That is a major flaw, but steadily I am trying to work out that bug and give these songs a lot more thought.

Thanks for the review.

Not bad..

First off - ignore just about everything that I'm about to say as I'm not into techno so really just about everything here is nonsense...

With the disclaimer out of the way:

Patterns may be different but not enough perhaps... I was expecting something more along the lines of a techno - breakcore thing never repeating a percussive bar - either way though it's not bad. It was missing something though - not sure what but it seemed like it could use a little fattening up - maybe a big-ass pad or two would thicken it a bit.

Honestly, I would have given a 4 but it looks as if you've already been 0'd >:( so I'm 5'ing it to try to help out a bit.

Not a bad track at all - just not my style.

I know - I know, worthless review... Oh well :)


IamMark responds:

That's not worthless Coffee. Hell I have quite a few of your tracks in my playlist. So getting a review from you is pretty sweet.

I went through quite a few different pads, but they all kind of ruined the song. They seemed to take over which is not what I wanted them to do. Kind of like putting pickles in your burger, they make the whole damned thing taste like pickles.

Lots of effort I guess

By your description it looks like you put alot of effort into this song. I'll try counting the # of patterns you got here. I don't count speeding up the same rhythm as a new pattern. Lots of the patterns sound the same. I see you added a few offbeat moments to add to the pattern selection. That' sa nice addition to the diversity factor. Despite the number of pattern you say were used, I don't feel like this is diverse enough. You need more obvious pattern changes. Overall I still think you put alot of effort into this song. I enjoyed listening but I know you can do so much better. 5/5 and 9/10 review. Bye for now

IamMark responds:

Yeah, I know what you mean about them still sounding the same. That is something I have been working on for a while. Maybe a few more down the line and I'll be able to do it. Thanks for the review bud.
