It's really nice, but a few of the notes feel just randomly put in, it's a bit cluttered. I know nothing about music or music theory, but apparently you got some things in there wrong too, but again, I know nothing so that won't be affecting my review. Nice song either way, but there seems to be a pattern in your songs where they're kind of cluttered, maybe it's your style but in my opinion it just sounds a bit messy and out of genre usually.

Vortonox responds:

ah thx

I really love the melody! The snare is rather weak and could be louder. I think the song could use a little more ambiance and a little more bass, but overall I think this song is really great, so great job!

EDIT: Maybe the snare is not weak, but it could use more attack/punch.

Vortonox responds:

thx. c:

The overall progression and structure is great, but I have a few points and things that need to be improved.
-you’re using a minor note in a major chord, you should probably fix that... maybe study some music theory and scaling
-the risers feel slightly out of place
-chord and melody synths should be different, overall the sound design needs variety
-snare and drums don’t fit with the rest of the song

Now things you did well:
-chord progression, pretty nice, a tiny bit repetitive
-great use of sidechain
-great drop, very intense
-piano fits well
-nice melody apart from one wrong note
-Octave change, great work

Things you could add:
-Slightly higher pitched snare, the snare feels like it should be for dubstep and it is one tone too low lmao
-reverb on piano keys and a bit more reverb throughout the song
-something to add variety (key change or bridge)
-more sound design variety, everything uses the same synth or piano

Overall it sounds great tho, awesome job!

Vortonox responds:

Thanks for your constructive feedback! Yes, I'm still learning Future Bass and I hope more Future Bass tracks from me in the future. So again thanks!

I used Harmor and Harmless and they somewhat sound the same and they have similar presets.

I hear some Dubstep drums, and some notes are a little out of the key, but I liked the rest :)

Vortonox responds:

thx

Aaaahhh, completely agree with AlienNinjaGD, some tones are offkey, like, you grabbed the E minor scale, and used a F note, which is offscale. It just sounds wrong.
Then another issue I found was that the sidechain was either super weak, or your drums weren't processed correctly, they sound pretty weak and quiet.
And yes, a lot, a LOT of drum fills make your ears tired.
Then we have basically the entire song without a bass. I bet that if it had a bass, it'd have sounded better.

Vortonox responds:

yeah
this is my first attempt and it sucks lmao

i grabbed the dmaj scale
