Finally got around to releasing my gift for @JessieYun from the recent Chips Secret Santa Compo!


I've mentioned that everything I've released so far has been an experiment. Well, I think I consider this track to be the last of my "experiment phase".


I'm about to really step up my game. You'll see real soon.


LYRICS:

Far away from reach, unknown

I'm clinging on the slipping edge

Tear me down with you alone

Feel the grey sun burning red


Fading out, fading in

Calling out for my world to spin

Fire's bright in the broken night

Take me by the hand, we'll run like wind


Won't you pull me in

Won't you pull me in

Won't you pull me in


Won't you pull me


EDIT: 5K plays holy shit y'all. Thank you guys so much <3 much much more is to come.

Shit Im late to the party... Damn frontpage! Im so fucking happy for you! You fucking deserve that!
Alright lets jump to the review
Its the beginning and Im loving the pad. Like in every of your song theres a reverby pad in the background that gives an atmosphere idk how u do that. And theres a guitar i like that, its not loud and too quiet thats perfect lol. And OMFG Ik you told me that u would do vocals for your songs but i never heard ur voice and holy shit u can sing! I would loved to hear some vibrato in words like "fading out, fading in" it would be so cool although it already is now. The staccato strings at 0:48 is awesome!I like the distorion of the pluck at 1:28, I never thought that distorting a pluck would sound good lol, might try that. A tiny complaint: at 1:34 the vocals are a bit too dry and don't really shine out. I would probably sing it an octave higher just to boost the drop. Ok now the drop. Damn it sounds epic af, I like the use of the saws! The melody is repetitive but catchy. However, I might vary the drum patterns a bit more. Also, the toms are a bit too loud in the 4hkz-10khz frequency, that makes them kinda sound like in a phonecall or shit you know. At 1:52 fuck, theres some sort of high pad that kicks in and it completly changed the allure of the drop and makes it even more epic. Idk how you maked the pad I tried to come up with something like that but never worked lol. And I love the transition from the drop to the outro with the pads being slightly distorted. Again, I never thought of distorting something thats meant to stay clean. And theres your trademark pad again, I can't tell which instruments are playing the plucked melody (harp?piano?pizzicato strings?or layered?). I have eargasms every time you use the dorian scale with the C# and I think ive already told you i fucking love dorian? And wtf you have the phrygian scale with the F natural at 3:12 it sounds as amazing! One complaint at the end though, at 3:20 when the low E on the piano was played, a lot of the high frequencies from the previous section was lost and I think u did it intentionally, but I might preferred just to leave the highs reverb. Its a small detail but yeah. Also something that I noticed, the song is in 60 or 120 bmp cuz the beat stayed consistent with the seconds mark on newgrounds lol!
Alright Ive been writing this for an hour and its time to conclude. I hope my review helped u and don't mind the way I write I write just like how I would speak to u lol and were friends right

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this, I really really appreciate all of this feedback! Thanks for pointing out some of the mix issues with like the toms and shit, I figured there was some issue there but couldn't really figure out what it was lol. And uhh yeah the pad in the drop (and similar pads) is actually really simple, (lol producer tip for anyone reading I guess) in this case it was a shakuhachi drowned out with reverb and with tube distortion cranked up. Works with like any pad, and it sounds especially good if the instrument is slightly detuned.

idk lol

Awesome song, not much that could be changed. The ending is a little long and it could have some vocals or just more substance.

I'm Impressed With This Music! Well Done!

si que esta épica la rola, a mi lista de favoritos
