Very reminiscent of the Rippy's
Your background percussion could stand to be a bit more varied for the first minute or so and this rendition relies more on ambience than melody; but it still made me nostalgia.
Not really strange
Hardly strange, this uses a lot of common trance building techniques.
Still it's pretty good, with an interestingly panned melody.
Good solid production work, though the melodic panning can get to be a bit tiring for the ears on headphones.
Much better than the first iteration
Listening to that criticism on the first one made this one jive so much better. Really feeling the deserty atmosphere more than the previously used synths.
Gee thanks, but I wasn't really aiming for anything on the other one. I just made it for fun, thanks for the review anyways!
Muffled muted drums seem a bit out of placed in the texture up until about 1:15.
Nice groove you have going on. I feel like the drums could be pulled back a little bit as they are overshadowing everything else as is.
Some instrument changes here and there would be nice but it's pretty decent as is.
Yeah now you mention it I should probably tone the drums down a little bit when I go back and finish it. Thanks for the review :)
Ps. btw I quite like your song 'Vectoral Synthesis' you should upload some more stoof xD
This has got a very nice groove. I listened to it for about 8 minutes without having it wear thin on my ears.
Thanks a lot, man, hopefully it didn't bug your ears too much :P
Needs a lot of work
Machine gun drums are obnoxious.
The synth and progression is pretty generic and at times mastered WAY too loud. Clipping is rampant everywhere in this piece. I'd go back, work on making the machine gun drums strategically placed rather than random and remaster your loudest sections a bit to prevent clipping.
Thanks for the review. I made this ages ago, i only decided to put it up today. I'm not sure why i used the machine gun noises to be honest...
Drums are a little bit too loud
Really that's the only thing that strikes me as off about the track. Nice groove you have going on, but the drums completely overpower everything else when present. Pulling them back a little bit would make this great.
Man, if only Sonic could have constantly stayed in the Sega Genesis era.
The bass is really fun. Some areas it feels like your background pad clashes notewise with your melody a bit. So i would look over that descending pad line a bit and try to eliminate that.
The stutter-run effect is pretty nice and definitely gives this track character.
The fadeout fades out all the instruments besides the drums, which is a bit weird. Is this intentional?
Have a nice day.
The fadeout wasn't intentional actually, I don't know why is doesn't fade the dums also, since is does that with Hot Crater Act 1 Genesis.
Good old bubblegum pop
This is some oldschool bubblegum club pop. Very active with a fun melody and a non static background. This piece is fun to listen to even if the synths themselves were a tad generic. The mids get a bit cluttered, but it's not a big issue, as everything pretty much comes together.
Fun times for everyone.
Haha, bubblegum pop is a new one to me. I've recently heard the name candy trance, I guess there's too many names for it :D
Thanks for the good review! :D
Fun and energetic
The background synths at 1:00 would benefit a lot from not being so generic or mixed so far forward in the soundscape. Pull them back or tweek their settings a bit and that section will be more fun.
Fun melody, good progression but a little weak on the drums (nothing bad, but nothing really setting them apart).
agh, you're right... I wasn't too content with the section at 1:00 either. The balance isn't right or something. In terms of drums, I thought of adding something besides a kick but then decided against it for some reason. Good percussion really makes a song come alive though. Anyway, thanks for the review!!
