Agree with Quarl...
My Sub Woofer eats this song alive, but I love it! Nicly done toon. I like it and think you should continue making Goa Trance this way.
Originality-I really should get a chance to listen to some more goa trance music, that way, I can give you better input on this section. For the moment, it seemed very new wave. The sound is something that is new, considering I barely hear this kind of music. What I can say is that the basics of the song are very similar to alot of other stuff that I listen to, but it a little less obvious this time. Good work!
Diversity-Nice building and dynamics! The song had a great flow to it that just wanted to make you get up and stomp to the beat or something like that :P
-It would have been nice for the song to reach a well thought-out climax. It seems as though you tried to create that with familiar themes and elements used in the beginning of the song all in one place, which was a good attempt. Be critical with yourself on what YOU want (you'll hear that alot from me, that's because it's important). When you're critical as much as possible, it shows in the final product, because people can see the awesome work you've done. This really is a unique sound, keep it up!
Clarity-I can hear that you've taken some of my points into consideration, which is good. With practice and experimentation, you'll get better. Some of your mixes might sound a bit weird at first, but by doing that practicing and experimentation, you grow your mindset of a balance of sound within a song. Overall, the mix is above average, but a lot of your instruments are a bit loud. Now, I understand you might be trying to capture a sense of style within the genre of this song. GREAT! Just remember that if you can push the volume up in some headphones, and something sounds muddled/sharp/something you find annoying, mess around to figure it out and get the right sound within the mix :D
-Effort: YEAH YEAH!
-Work hard, you're getting better at a great rate.
Thanks for the review Stephen!
I enjoyed making this song very much. I listen to this one about every day, it's so catchy too me! I didn't notice that it was a bit too loud because I used really good Headphones. Oh well.
Thanks for the review mate!
I used to be a Goa Trance producer myself, so I can give you a few pointers here and there :)
The intro was quite the normal Goa thing. Amateur sounding, but generally the right idea. Try to get a kick sample (or make one, if you're feeling creative) that has a harsh "click" at the beginning. Kind of like an edited 808 kick sample.
The bass was nice. Followed the goa tradition nicely :) The only thing I didn't like about it was that it sounded very... distorted. Try taking off the distortion, and turn it into a kind of 303-like kind of dealio. Might get a more bassy, solid sound in the mix if you did that.
The sound effect you used was nice, fit the genre beautifully. It was just loud, is all. Make it blend with the mix.
Overall, the song was pretty good. Just make some nicer sounds, and work on your arrangement a little bit. You've got kind a general "build-up then fade off" thingy goin' here, and that ain't bad, it's just not entertaining. If you wanna build it up, make sure you're changing parts around a LOT.
Keep it up, I expect to hear amazing things from you very soon. I may not REVIEW in the future, but I'll definitely be listening :)
Keep it up!
BASS OF DOOOOOOOOOM.
I'm drowning in bass. And that's a good thing.
However, a good bit of the song suffers from so much bass, but when you dropped it out, it was like a breath of fresh air.
Phasing is fun, ain't it?
Anywho, it's pretty awesome, I like the song a lot.
Though that snare sounds pretty lonely and low-quality. Makes me sad.
Anyways, definitely good for a five and McGreatBurger.
Keep it up. :D
Thanks for the review Solus!
And what about the McGreatFries? lol. Thanks again!
not bad man, i really enjoyed this song, but the beat in the beginning is just amazin, keep up the good work!
