I've been using the Logic Pro X's 90 day free trial and made this while messing around with it. So many instruments and plugins, I am overwhelmed!

I like to think of the context of this track as two bad asses about to bust some thugs hide-out, haha. But who knows, everyone imagination is different. What did this track make you think of and feel?

As always, constructive feedback of any kind is greatly welcome!

Thanks for the listen!

I actually enjoy the calmer part at 0:56, but maybe would have made it so the percussion started being intense again in 1:13 so it didn't feel too long, as it's a pretty long interruption of the mostly fast paced song.
While this song doesn't give me a very particular image it does feel like some sort of scene-from-right-before-the-climax thing, maybe something you'd hear in the final stage of an action game or something similar, the melodies also have some sort of oriental feel to them, which is always nice.

Thank you, man!
It's so helpful to get feedback from a fresh pair of ears. After listening to the feedback I can agree that that 1:00 part could use some work.
Thanks again, bro.

Interesting concept.

In the beginning, I can see it: A buddy-cop movie where the two protagonists sneak into a warehouse.

It's about to get going, but 56 seconds in the atmosphere turns anticlimactic. I think the action-oriented feel would be better served if the sounds became more aggressive and there was more to the instrumentation.

I also think the song is a bit quiet; you could probably find some included compression/limiting plugins somewhere in Logic Pro, I can imagine.

Overall, not bad.

Oh man it’s great to have a fresh pair of ears! Thanks so much for the feedback, I can see much clearer where I could have done better now.
And those are some great review guidelines, hope you do the mind if I start practicing them!
