Well, I really don't know what I just did, but I liked how it ended. I was creating what came to my mind xD, also this is the first time I split the drums and use effects in this program. I hope you like it.

Hello! This is a review for the NGUAC competition.

I've gone over one or two general categories of issues specific to your song, and one section of things I think also deserve complimenting. I prefer being very direct with my critique, none of it is meant to offend. Thank you for your understanding!

Constructive Criticism:

- Lovely 8-bit! With this type of music, you can actually master it at -1.0dB instead of lower as it is currently. Do be careful to mix it a bit better though, the particularly high frequencies should be filtered slightly to make sure they aren't quite as sharp when you raise the lead up an octave. It would also be excellent to have a section with lower volume to provide a point of contrast with the earlier intense sections.

- I think what this track REALLY needs more than anything else is a hook to really pull the listener in. Since this is 8-bit, I think this might provide a wonderful point of comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ks3RNLNvpCg This track IMMEDIATELY hooks your attention with the arpeggios. When the chord comping comes in later, that becomes a second theme to keep your attention throughout the following sections and as an idea you can come back to. Themes and hooks are not just melodies alone. Without this type of hook and theming, the piece can feel 'flat' and not very memorable.

Compliments to the Composer:

- Realistically there's not much actively wrong with this track. It's perfectly reasonable and would fit very well in a video game. I think your theming is good, and the tempo changes does help make it much more memorable and interesting!

Final score: 7.2
