Great song. Awesome to get some experienced technical constructive reviews in the comments already. Great job "laying it all out there" for the nguac competition.

I'd love to hear what you come up with if you rework this song a bit, applying some of the reviewers feedback. You totally should!

Pretty great for stock FL only. Wow how the DAW has improved over the years.

I would say the bass has a bit too much mids. Like truenotfals mentioned, it's filling up my ears and I'm wanting to hear at least a break in it from sidechain. Maybe sidechain heavier. As we go on, the bass gets seemingly louder and louder -- but clearer as the instruments on the sides back off. Remember, your percussion, namely kick and snare, should be the loudest instrument in your track, even if sidechain is used, they should still be able to cut through without it. I would turn your bass down by up to a dB but not over that.

Otherwise, my comments would run close to trunotfals, with the exception of liking your piano lick and wanting to hear more of it. I also am enjoying your structure. Final gripe would be -- let me hear a nice long sustained i chord at the end! :P

Anyway, nice work. Enjoyed the listen. Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

Thank you for the review! Yeah, looking back on the track the bass is a bit loud. I'll remember that for the future.

Great intro to start off with. I think the lower tones on that bas voice are a little low end heavy, yet, your kick cuts through enough, but i want that kick to be louder still.

After 40 seconds, that bass voice is a little overpowering and i my ear wants to hears something different.

great change of pace at :50

The melody voice at 1:00 is super quiet.

I feel like a little more layering of your samples couldve given all of this song a bit more life. layer that bass voice with another, layer your melodies with another voice, use 2-5 snares (im not even kidding haha) and balance everything to sound how you want it. the piano lick that goes all fast sound a bit chaotic, doesnt have a lot of melodic content. I really like your vocal synth in the very beginning, and i feel like that never comes back.

Yea the kick needs to cut through, do some research on sidechain compression with your kick, sidechain compression is the bread and butter of a producer.

Overall im loving the vibe you created here and I think this song could have a lot of potential if those drums, hats, and snares, and all your voices could be brought to life with some layering!!!

Great submission to the NGUAC!

Thanks for the review! I did use sidechaining, but I guess I didn't make it strong enough.
