nac entry; remix of https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/2096

something quick and short i whipped up for the nac, and as the original is this short, i'm keeping my entry short as well. also this was basically rushed sorry :(

Nice filtering work at the beginning. Synths are a bit generic, and the reverb is a tad excessive. Catchy beats, and I like the pizzicato-y synths that play on the off beats. The piece doesn't quite feel structurally complete, though, and also needs a bit more memorable melodic content. Overall, it's a good start, but I can tell it's rushed. You should finish it sometime! Keep at it, man.

I like it more than the original. If you had more time to flesh this out, it could have been something. The middle section is the best part. It sounds concise and tight. The rest of the song is bit bland and the mix isn't up to snuff.

I can respect the effort here. Don't rush next time.

Man I freaking love that synth you bring in at 0:30, brings this thing to life! I wish I could've heard more of it as it's the main hook for the body of this remix imo.

Overall I am enjoying this, it's just a bit on a quiet side for the mix and really screams to be about twice at long. If you're a wild man like I hope you are, I'd kill to hear you sit down with this project a second time around and give it a little more length and a layer of polish, it could be sweet.

ayyyyyy testuser whatup man. Great job making the top 8. Cool selection as well. I think you improved quite a lot of aspects to it. This is a super technical fix and its good you'll be learning now, but when you lo-fi in a mix like you do in the intro you've got to be sure to put some counter measures in the EQ either in the sound generators or master envelope or wherever to counteract any crackly fuzz effect like I hear at the 0:04 - 0:10 marks (cant fool us fellow producers I know that crackle not supposed to be there ;) ), and because thats an intro stumble I'd say thats a -1. Thiccc drums Thicc bazz, good melody, gangster feel. I'm gonna give a -0.5 for the length because I wanted this to develop into a 3 min banger based on the direction you took it its like epic build epic build... crescendo for 10 seconds (lol) and epic outro, epic outro, kinda wonky so -0.5. . Don't ever give up music. You got the ear and base talent etc etc.

FLASHBURN SCORES:

Original Piece: 4.0
Remix: 3.5
Net: -0.5

The filtered intro definitely extended this remix into a very fitting track to the original.

The sound samples and synths sound too generic and stock-sounding telling me you didn't really spend much time on tweaking the sound design of each synth to making it your own. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't sound bad, but it definitely didn't sound great and more unoriginal and like you stated... rushed.

The heavy growling bass mainline was a nice little addition and definitely gave this remix more life than the original.

Overall 3.5/5
