I was a bit too scared to try and publish anything after Glippy since I wasn't confident that I'd be able to maintain consistent quality from there, but some friends of mine started getting into music production and that motivated me to try new things. This is actually the first time I've ever used Harmor. I normally use Sytrus, and so this time I challenged myself to not use Sytrus at all. I think I only used it once, which is still record-breaking for me.

With that being said, I'm extremely proud of the composition of this, but I know in my heart that it's far from perfect. There are some instruments that are too loud, and there is some conflict for presence among the different instruments playing simultaneously. I don't like that, but with how much new territory I explored with this, I think the experience of making it was worth it even in spite of the fatal errors.

I hope people enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it. I don't think I've ever had this much fun with a song. I'd like to maybe make some simpler stuff in the future, but I definitely want to keep exploring. I'm still quite a rookie when it comes to sound design, and I'd love to change that.

this is so groovy, i love it lol

the sound design actually isn't too bad, and that transition between keys/tempos is fuckin great lol

overall, very nice :draconCute:

The sound design is okay. A good few of your sounds are a bit boring, and could be far more interesting. Also, I don't quite think that the base starting at 1:00 meshes the best with the rest of the song, but that may well just be me.

The structure and flow of the song is pretty nice. The intro and outro are wonderful, and the transitions are fantastic. The one part that stands out like a sore thumb to me, however, is 1:28-2:07. Even though the transitions are good, that part doesn't feel like it flows with the rest of the song.

I feel as though the percussion could benefit from some sidechaining, particularly the snare around :56. Otherwise, the percussion seems very nice.

You should be proud of the composition, even accounting for the middle segment, it's by far your strongest point in this song. You also didn't do that badly with sound design, even with using an unfamiliar synth.

Very nice to see another song from you, it's been a while. Welcome back.

Heya man, sorry I'm a month late to the response here. I read this and processed it and just altogether forgot to acknowledge it.

I definitely agree with the sounds being boring; I don't really know how to do sound design. I've been trying to figure it out for ages but plugins and sound manipulation don't make sense to me no matter what I try. I actually intended to get rid of that bass and forgot it was there.

I actually figured people would think negatively of the transitions because of how abrupt they are; I'm glad to hear quite exactly the opposite. The transitions were the only part of the composition that I wasn't too proud of, Composition feels to me like it's pretty much the only strong suits I have when it comes to music, and I either have to learn how to deal with it or learn how to change it.

Thanks again for the detailed review, it's always greatly appreciated. <3

Pretty nice 8)

I’m gonna use this in a level, once all my other projects have died

interesting
