Something original, for once!
I really like this, not necessarily because it's the greatest song, but it's got alot of voice, this isn't just another rave song like lots of other things on the site. It's like epic-glitch. The drums in the middle were annoying (not that they shouldn't be in there, just maybe a few measures shorter - they really add to the song), but I really liked the samples you used, and how you cut them. The bird samples and most of the other foliage was kinda dumb. I think you should find something to replace it with. I think you should have added more off-key sounds, to add more depth, but that's just my taste. The end was a bit annoying, what with all the "I'll just add another string instrument with the same general melody" and all, so I suggest changing it up a little. Maybe you could opt for odd sounding synthesizers, I dunno. My favorite part was definitely when the drum solo thingy ended and the music started again. Anyway, thanks for the uploading, if you ever make an improved version or something, make sure you PM me! I'd love to hear it.
(I just wrote about an 1000 character review for this, and then somehow pressed "back" and lost ALL of my work, so sorry, but I'm going to be a bit more brief this time, lol.) I think that this song really had trouble getting somewhere. It was really repetitive. Do something else with it, be creative, mix it up! It's more of a loop repeated alot than a song. Add more tracks or something! I mean, maybe this would be alright for a one minute song on which you base a longer song, but for over four minutes? Sorry, it's just not working for me. Also, the choir synth was annoying. I think maybe you should change the sound a bit by tweaking your synthesizer. I don't want to sound mean, but I think you could make this really good with more work. PM me if you release an improved version, though, I would like to hear it!
i dont give a shit in what you think :O
i'm just kiddin lol, ok, but i dont think i will fix this anymore on a long time, but someday maybe so thanks for the tips.
Usually I rant in my reviews at people for not being original, but I liked the beginning of your song, regardless of the fact that it was quite a bit like other dance songs, and lacked originality. I thought the second half was more original, although not as good. I would suggest splitting this up into two different songs and making them MUCH longer, because I could see both of them turning into pretty sweet songs. The bass around 0:50 was VERY annoying, I would suggest changing that. Loved the vocal sample in the middle, though. If you release improved versions of these songs, make sure to PM me, I would love to hear!
Thx for the review. Perhaps i will release them in 2 seperate songs in the future, cus i am not happy with the worki put in this song in fact. But i am currently working on some other songs. Anyways thx for ur opinion :)
I liked the start, but then...
What the heck was up with that 8-bit synth that came in? It was sounding really cool for a moment, but after that it turned into some sort of videogame music. I would suggest removing some of those hard-core in-your-face synths and opt for more of the ambience at the beginning and the cool glitch-style stuff at about 1:15 (I'm a sucker for glitch). Otherwise it's just another dance song, and we already have, like, a million of those on this site. I did like those glitch synths in the middle, by the way. I'm just negative in my reviews, lol :P .
PM me if you make an improved/remastered version, I would love to hear it!
I guess that's just your style, and i appreciate teh comments but i just like 8-bit sounds together with such music, i just really adore a big wall of sound.
And that's what this is, after the intro, no? Although im a sucker for glitch too ;)
Why'd you give up?
I think that you really had something going here! I loved the beat at the start, but then you switched it to some random off-beat thingy. This could have gone so many ways! My suggestion is to start over from the beginning, and then add more tracks as the song goes along, like a cool drumbeat. Glitch-rave, man. It sounded kind of original, too, and I dig originality. Just needs more work. PM me if you make another version!
After saving the planet...
I don't think you would really want to dance at a rave after the saving of a planet, lol. But as far as the song goes, I'm impressed. It could have taken a turn for the worse. I liked the piano, but I must say the song as a whole got a bit repetitive. Also, the ambient chords sounded a bit compressed. Thy pumping up the high end of those ambient synths with an EQ. And switch it around a bit, unless of course your intention is to make it repetitive, like for some sort of flash movie or something. Also, it's lacking originality. Even if a song really sucks, I might give it an okay score if it has an original sound to it, but this song isn't too original (saying this is a little bit hypocritical, though, I guess, lol). I think you have it in you to make something original, it wasn't as annoyingly main stream as some of the stuff on this site (i.e. the popular stuff). Try some stuff with it. Maybe have it take a 180 in the middle, and turn all evil. PM me if you improve on this, I would love to hear it!
Hehe thanks for the review! I agree with quite a lot of the things you said, I don't think I'll try to improve it but your advice could definitely be used for future reference. I don't know about this not being original because I wasn't trying to copy any other pieces of music but I do see what you mean.
Instantly turned on, but then...
I really liked the beginning, and all the glitch drums you had. I like it how you're putting your own spin on the rave music, but do more with it! Gets too repetitive! Add different synths, man! Here's something you could try: go for that weird ambient-glitch sound you were leaning towards at the beginning of the song. That might be cool, but really I think you just need to switch up the synthlines a bit, maybe add more tracks or something. You got something going here (I LOVED the drums). Yeah, I'm gonna say it definitely needs more tracks. PM me if you improve it, I want to hear!
I dig the originality, but the endlessly-repeating cut-up loops got really annoying. Do something else with it. Definitely liked where it was going, but it's more of a loop than a full fledged song. Add some more tracks or something. This could really get somewhere with more work. PM me if you improve it, I'd love to hear!
I mean, this isn't amazing, but it's not half bad! Especially if you didn't use loops! I'm gonna have to agree with ClearRed, though, the cutoff in the middle was really dumb. Just mix up some of the stuff, and use non-loops (if you did, sorry!) to put your own twist on it. I think you've got talent, man. Just keep trying! PM me if you improve it!
Kinda cool in the middle
You need to make this longer. If you did this in 20 minutes, I'd really like to see what you can do with a few days of work! I the glitch noises and panning. Sounds REALLY compressed, though. Did you use garageband, cause if you did, make sure to use garageband's compressor, not iTunes's. Anyway, I liked where this is going. Be careful, though: if you extend it, try to be original. I can tell you've got originality going through this piece, but being so short it could lean any way, and you might come out with another average-sounding rave song. And I don't think we need too many more of THOSE on the website. ANyway, PM me if you extend it, I would like to hear!
