I can see this song as a great peice of musical sound but the drums ruin it for me thats why its only a 9 :( althought seeing your other reviews makes me want to see what else you have done so this would be the last of me :P
Yeah, same. I didn't have good drum samples for this song at the time. Well, I probably did, somewhere, I just didn't know them for what they were, and didn't know how to use them right. :P
Do you mean, not the last of you, or something? I'm kinda lost here. XD Thanks for the review!
I'm convinced you're brilliant. Everything I listen to is a feast for the ears, and I don't bother reviewing you because you have everything under your masterful control. You really should be doing this professionally if you aren't already. 5/5 as usual.
Heh, glad you think so! XD
You don't HAVE to put criticism in your reviews, a praising review would be nice too. :P
Thanks for the review and the high ratings, glad you liked it! :D
Hey karco...becoming quite the ambient artist huh?
You have all the right synths and FX for it definately. You know what pads to use and it fits well.
Drums...I do agree with your description...only way to get better samples is money though...sucks =\
I've always been a sucker for fading through the left and right. So nice touch there. Since you've been doing this stuff for a while...I think that its good to say that you could add some difficulty.
I.E. maybe more moving lines...different percussion noises...
So anyways great job! OH AND DROP ME A REVIEW FOR MY LATEST =)
Not much to add but I can agree with most of what you said. :) Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed it, I'll definitely review your latest soon. :D
Fucking awesome ambient/industrial/heavy remake you made of the tune. The atmosphere is damn excellent, HUGE reverb and panning- I'd prefer if you panned something else than the drums- cause they make the atmosphere a bit shuffled (drums are close, everything else is far away- I think that's good for experimental tunes, but not this kind of tunes).
The drums are really the only thing there are problems with- the panning as I said- plus they make the song clip! (I thought it could be disortion, but, well the waveform shows clipping) If you über compress them you'll have two plus-es in one, NO clipping- and fatter, punchier drums. The hat is a bit hi- actually a more ride- I'd like it sound more like a ride cymbal.
Niiiiiiice sine pad you have in the background, it makes a relaxing feeling before the heavier part, and a bit of emotion. Strings add to that feeling but they're damn low in the mix.
Now what's that slide-down lead I hear? If it's a synth lead- then that lead is FRIGGIN AMAZING, but if it's a guitar- then I'm a little ">:/".
Rhode/marimba/xylo synthesis sounds good as usual, but don't go all crazy with the wetness of it ;)
As I said, awesome remake, but it doesn't sound... 100% finished... there's something about how it ends I think... plus there's not a lot of instrumentation.
I was thinking of making a remake of this myself- from scratch. Cause both main melodies are fairly simple to make. And I tell you, mine will sound more ambient than yours >:[
Knew you'd review this one right away. :D
Yeah, I'm great with trancier drums - remember Nova? :D (Specifically the intro.) Realistic drums are where I fail. :( I'm trying, though, and next time I'll definitely keep your advice in mind.
Yep, nearly all of this is Cygnus, actually. Except for the sliding lead, which really is a synth lead! :D
Thanks for the review, SBB, glad you enjoyed it... True, that ending doesn't make it wound 100% finished - thing is, I wanted to make it longer, but there wasn't much to try without making it boring. :\ So I cut it there.
(That remake had BETTER be more ambient than mine! >:( )
This is really cool music you got here. It sounds very magestic. I think this is actually a piece of art.
Glad you like it. :) Thanks for the review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
