Loving the atmosphere you create at the beginning, love that lead sound design. The eerie Pedal tone or drone is good and love how it fades out.
Great vibe you've created with the introduction of your drums, love the snare/clap layering, very rounded snare sound.
BOY do I love the way that the initial lead automates throughout the first minute. Great overtones created in that synth. the super high pitched melody at :44 feels a bit out of place for me, but i cant quite put my finger on it. great transitions!
Man all the different sounds you get from automating that initial lead! great variation at 1:30.
SOmething about that super high lead in the second half of your drops. Maybe its just a little much on the high end of its frequencies, possibly warm it up a little bit. It sounds GREAT doubled with the guitar like synth.
Overall I love this song as an ambient song. I TOTALLY see this in the background of Risk of Rain. Or in the background of a space building game like Satisfactory. I can SEE this in a game, but not actively listening. I want to judge this as an ambient piece, because this is a GREAT ambient piece, Great song to be on a game soundtrack. I dont think it's synthwave, however i think newgrounds limits us in our genre selections.
TLDR; as an ambient piece, this is pretty darn good, love your instrumentation, love that MAIN lead and that high lead i learned to appreciate. you need the variance. the structure is VERY repetitive, but that works for ambient. it was A, B, C, A, B, C, A, B, C.
Overall great work! Adding this to my favs.
