Official AIM Review!
Very fresh sound-palette. Super smooth bass, which is so bouncy in and of itself, it almost sounds like the melody. Really, it's no secret what's driving this piece. A pleasure just to hear someone write bass well.
Piece as a whole seems quite crisply mixed, although I do notice the bass and kick seem to be just a bit loud throughout. Kick is probably not so much a problem and I may just be hearing the two of them together as quite loud. Might solve that problem with a little creative side-chain/hi-pass to get the bass out of the way of the kick in the sound-space.
Nice work maintaining a very quirky-girl theme. It's going to be stuck in my head.
I'm not noticing what TL said about too many high freqs on your kick. Sounded great to me on my monitor headphones, which have a very flat sound response.
I will add that I was initially dubious of what I was going to hear at 00:15 with that loud synth. Might have gone for a smoother sounding synth. That one's very sibilant. You really out-did yourself with the variety in this tune though. Keeps my ears fresh throughout.
Thanks for turning out to this year's AIM competition!
