I love this. There are very few words to describe how good this song is. I really hope you do some more songs like this!

Many thanks :)

The moment when you use kontakt but it sounds like fl keys haha im laughing so hard rn :D DnB and Ambience has something special to it - it's more relaxing to me than listenling to lo-fi cause i'm lowkey digging the drums in addition to the ambience xD

But yeah as la-yinn said, reverb can be useful but it also needs more space. Overlapping frequencies without like being concious about them can be something that just annoys :D especially your mainparts with the drums - sometimes it's too much and needs a cut in my opinion :D
But like in general the intro and the break is okay (maybe too much reverb aswell)
Coming back to the keys, well they don't exactly sound like fl keys - but different velocity wouldn't hurt either :D

Yeah that's alot of criticism BUT I like your track really much! It's something I could chill to :D Overall it's really good - you only need to work on mastering/ make small changes etc.

Good job :D

alright thanks for the tips :)

Really digging the ambiance!

thanks :)

Dude. Tune! I feel like between the mixdown and the arrangement, the mixdown is the real winner. That break is very crisp and tight. Maybe a bit too overpowering for the rest of the track though.

I feel like the intro could introduce some bass elements and have them stick through the bridge to fill it up a bit more though. And the piano is kind of out of place; probably FL Keys? I hate FL keys. Only way to make that work is to layer itself with many notes octaves up and down and to seperately adjust the volume of the notes to 'pick the right frequency' if you will. Oh, and a fuckton of reverb. And some volume attack on the notes. And pre-transients. Really, it just sucks. Dont use FL Keys.

Tune though! Dont expect this kind of work on NG but sometimes you land on nice exceptions.

It's actually the giant piano library for kontakt 5, but I managed to make it sound like fl keys lol.. too much compression maybe.. or I could try some other vst

anyway, thanks for your thoughts :)
