Take it down a notch Take it down a notch

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very nice, very chill

Love the vibes and drums - classy. The title is a winner as well, of course. Your drum kit sounds really top notch, so your test was a success to my ears. Great freedom in your harmonies, good sense of motion. Keep up the good work! Keep fear alive!

4/5 - 8/10

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It's kind of odd...

in that the song kind of feels like a prelude to something - I'm thinking you could transition to something new at the end and expand it. Top-notch work, at any rate. Interesting use of patches/effects to keep interest in a static texture as well as a few intriguing moments when the bottom seems to drop out.

Clicking over to check out 'Vitality.' Keep making music!

5/5 - 9/10

Cool!

Very neat array of sounds. What kind of mic are you using/what kind of dampening? Can't wait to hear more.

Behringer XM1800S Dynamic, with no pop-shield or anything
and Ableton comes with tons of effects, one of witch is a brilliant EQing tool, so i removed loads of highs and lows from a lot of instruments to help spread it a bit
Thanks :D check out my mini mixes, a little bit different, but plenty of wave manipulation in there! ;)

Not a bad start

I'm not super-familiar with the trance aesthetic, but it's a bit repetitive for my taste. I like your rhythmic ideas a lot, but you might consider holding off on some of your texture (introducing instruments slowly) and changing chord progressions to add variety and spin out your ideas over more time.

Keep making music!

Great stuff! Can't wait to listen to more

Wow! What a polished sound. Your vocalist is really talented. Really great work, man.

The only thing I would caution against is that you have a sort of pulsing thing going on in the chorus and it gives a 'slow two' feeling that isn't quite what you're going for, I don't think. Maybe a little snare on the backbeat or a pad to soften the dynamic change? Anywho, that's just a tiny criticism - great song. Keep up the good work!

5/5 - 9/10


Shoephly responds:

First of all, thanks for commenting, means a lot!
secondly, it's not my vocalist. xD, it's from a remix pack i found containing the vocals (at a 20k bitrate sample o.o) and the midi for the bassline.

And yea, i understand that the transition is well; not there. This has to do somewhat with that I'm not done with the piece, but seeing that you commented on it obviously brings it to my attention that's it's a big problem.
It will be worked on and probably finished before friday (the full 4min track :D)

Yet again thanks a ton for the review.

Nice but...

Well...it's actually a cover of a cover of a hit from the 60s. ;-)

The lead is a little too slippery and needs to be brought back a touch.

Pretty cool stuff!

You have a really nice voice, auto-tuned or not. As the song progresses it'd be nice to hear a line or two of harmony during the chorus in addition to the backing vocals. I like the ambience you've added in the background and your instrument choices are solid.

Thanks for sharing!

You scared my dog

Whoah...dude. That opening is some wacked out stuff. Is that you singing? Really interesting track. I'm not sure I necessarily like it...but it's really interesting, which is saying something.

Keep up the creative work! Sometimes our experiments produce good results down the road.

Pretty darn good

I really like the guitar work despite the less-than-stellar recording quality. Is that someone actually playing or was it done through software? It sounds pretty legit, so good work regardless. The drums aren't bad, either, even if they are canned. Overall, very nicely done. Looking forward to more submissions.


Nfinity responds:

First of all...WOW! Thanks so much for a review. Didn't think this song would ever get one due to its poor recording quality.

Second, yeah, that's real guitar, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm a huge fan of rhythm guitar, so it's rare for me to venture into the realm of lead guitar when I play. I haven't heard this in a while, and the recording quality makes me cringe (It's like listening to it through a wall made of 15 layers of aluminum foil and marshmallows). The drum loop was created in LMMS using strictly the pre-installed drum pack (This was the best I could do. I'm TERRIBLE at creating percussion work). I turned up my speakers, turned up the volume on my amp, put my Samsung Omnia II in the middle of the two and pressed record.

Anyways, thanks again for the review. Much appreciated!

(P.S. - On a side note, Seams of Memories has worked its way onto my driving playlist, not to mention on CD's of mixed music that I've submitted to friends and family (A song they've all loved, btw). I wanted to ask; is it something that will eventually become a full song, or will it remain a loop? I LOOOOOVE it as a newgrounds loop, but on a cd, it just ends abruptly.

Check it out, anyone who reads this.
