Arcana has a good melody, but doesn't have a drop. So I made a remix of the song in my style. lol.

This song is made with a computer that has 6gb of RAM, I had to divide the song into 4 flp cuz of the lag. Including the 4 flp, I used around 130 mixer slots, 300 patterns and spent exactly 201 HOURS TO MAKE IT, WHERE THE FUCK IS MY LIFE?

156BPM, B minor then transposed to C# minor, wtf?

Jokes aside, making this song wasn't easy, the hard drive of my computer failed once and I lost the project once, my headphones broke twice and a defective plugin (the flute) made FL Studio crash at least 6 times without saving and backing up. I've wanted to give up countless times but I guess I'm bad at giving up

IMPORTANT: Please note that this song is a REMIX of Arcana in MY style, not Xtrullor’s, otherwise it would be a REMAKE. Please don’t downvote this song just because it doesn’t sound like the original, it is a REMIX, REMIX REMIX AHHHHHHH

Sorry for the super slow response, man! I really like the sound design and soothing collage of riffs at the beginning. They kinda bleed into each other in a really smooth way. The percussion at :33 is a strong follow-up, and the atmosphere and full texture really sell this piece. It has a couple of sudden mood changes, notably the drop at 1:48, but overall the progression and transitions are quite pleasing. The mix is very loud and clear. You clearly spent a lot of time on the production here. The "principal" breakdown at around 2:30 was nice, especially with the sweeping strings at 2:45. I think you cycle through some instrumental themes a bit too quickly during this section. The piece loses its sense of direction for a while until you bring back the instrumental hierarchy of the first climax at around 3:15. Overall, really strong work here. You took a lot of compositional risks here, and most of them certainly pay off. This piece sounds like a journey. Keep up the good work, Tennon! ^_^

Tennon responds:

You just reminded me of how shitty am I at transitions and thats a big issue! I love your reviews, cuz they never lack anything!

Oh pretty nice

Just seems like a second song with Arcana’s melody

Tennon responds:

Arcana's melody is insane, but I don't feel that the composition is good enough, thats why I chose to take the same melody and make a completely new song with it. It's still a remix though

This is changed way too much that it doesn't feel the same the song.. The song was for like mysterious n stuff that's what arcana means.. But it doesn't feel like that anymore.. The song is good on it's own I guess but if your trying with the old theme it just got butchered.

Tennon responds:

Well, it is supposed to be a remix right? So I made it in my fashion by adding some flute, pentatonic melodies and some dorian bits. Ik it doesn't sound quite Xtrullor but whats the point of remixing it if I don't include my style? It would rather be an edit. And please have a bit of respect for all my effort put into this piece, you are giving me the lowest rating here without offering a constructive comment on how I might improve my musical composition.
