As for the NGADM hurry, I've decided to upload my song here first, I will upload it to YT once I have internet again :(

Anyways, this one is my all time personal favorite! I've spent years on getting it sound perfect for me.

I was aiming to a summer/inspiring song, with flutes and a "fresh" drop.

I hope y'all enjoy this adventure through the happy lands!

Gracias!

Cute synths at the beginning. The piece is a little slow to progress at first, but the atmospheric effects keep things engaging until around :30, when things really start to pick up. The mix is clear, and the sound design remains refreshing and well-varied. The bass at :53, while a little too loud, keeps up the energy and drive of the piece nicely. The chord progression of the piece is pretty generic, and despite the fun rhythmic riffs and smooth flow, this piece doesn’t have a lot of dynamic melodic content. I really like the sound design (especially the vocals and pads), atmosphere, and a lot of the compositional details too (that quirky chord at 2:00 sounds dope), but the structure of the piece is a little bizarre, and never really comes to a satisfying point of resolve imo. I would’ve liked to hear a melodic bridge or something to give this piece the structural variety it deserves. That said, the climactic section at the end was probably the next-best thing, despite the fact that it wasn’t varied much from the prior refrain. Overall, this is a solid piece. The production, sound design, and atmosphere are particularly good here. Most of my gripes here are pretty nit-picky, and often amount to missed opportunities more so than things that actively bother me. Keep up the good work, Pred! :)

9/10 wow!! Thank you as always, its really a pleasure to have your constructive criticism, it is very useful. Like back at the day in the NGADM17, you helped me to improve a lot.

I really need to work on my melodies haha, thank you again man!

Suerte en el NGADM!!

PredatorMusic responds:

Gracias!!

I think this track sounds pretty empty in the mids, something with some extra synth layers could easily fix. Really like the 2000's electro style you're going for though. I do think that the melodies in the buildup at 1:40 kinda clash with each other. I also think the drop that follows lacks in bass, especially with how you spammed the bass pluck before. I really like the section at the finally; it kinda reminds me of a pokemon battle.

All in all, one of the better tracks I've heard recently! Good job!

PredatorMusic responds:

Thanks for the feedback man! I’ll take notes on this, I really need to work more on my bass usage :D
