So, I've had some difficulty getting to sleep recently, with the neighbors blasting tunes at 4am.

So, have YOU ever been trying to sleep and suddenly your dad bursts in with his new 7-string electric saying "CHECK OUT THIS NEW TUNING, IT'S WHERE YOU TUNE THE B TO AN A, and it sounds like THIS."

I may make more of these kind of tunes in future, hope you like.

Anyway, have a good one, hope you enjoy Van Halen.



edit: thanks for the fifth front page in a row, good gravy grounds.

Thanks to Phil Munro for final mix he is a beast.

How right would I be to guess you're a David Maxim Micic fan? :D

Mackievellian responds:

Actually never listened man but I'll check it out! Thanks for the awesome comment friend

Still amazes!

Edit: I never left... and perhaps :)

Mackievellian responds:

Yooo haha you came back! Cheers phono, see you in the discord sometime aye?

I wish I'd had more time to listen to the music coming out of the Audio Deathmatch this year sooner. This is amazing.

Mackievellian responds:

Thanks so much, man.

Official NGADM Review for Round 3.

That intro is honestly soooo good! It gets the listener in the mood, and then BAM! HERE TIMMY CHECK OUT THIS ROCK BALLAD! It's just so good in terms of its composition, keeping itself fresh and even working well with a change of tone in the middle. The sound design here is really good, and the production value is also a knock out of the park.
My critiques? I think that while the sound design is really good, there can definitely be some improvements made to it, mainly coming from the lullaby portion. I thought the music box and flute were a little too bright, but that might be just what I've gotten used to in terms of how music boxes and flutes sound lol. To me, it just distracted me only a little bit, and they are smaller problems that really don't overshadow the entire piece. One other thing that I will mention, and this isn't really affecting your score, is that I felt the delay rate could be slower - rather than being closer to a quarter note value, it might be worth experimenting bringing them to the value of a dotted eighth instead. Again, though, that's just a personal preference that isn't going to affect your score.
Overall, this is suuper good! The two different tones achieved in one piece with similar melodies is hard to pull off well, but I think you did it wonderfully! Great job!

Mackievellian responds:

Amazing, thank you. I actually had it set to a dotted value before but changed it due to it sounding like a three over four polyrhythm, lol. Thank you very much for this feedback, and the kind words, man.

Title confused me for a moment because of my browser, almost thought this was a round 2 song. XD

Got to agree with matt-likes-swords, sounds like an emotional scene type music and I dig it.

The guitar sounds beautiful and I love it so much. It ends up complimenting everything else without being overpowering in the process.

Kind of sad how it feels like it ends before it can truly begin but its an excellent short piece.

Mackievellian responds:

Honestly I wished I had more time but LIFE. Thanks for that, glad you like the guitar-ing and hope you like the next one.
