Part of a whole.
Now, overall I got a cool vibe from this song. But sometimes cool just isn't enough. I really felt that it didn't go anywhere, like I was stuck in the breakdown part of a more intense song. It really could stand to pick up, but what is here is a good step. Also, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was listening to everything in a bubble, if that makes sense. I'd like to hear some instruments that aren't inside there. Could also use some more variation in patterns, not much, but I think a little more would be nice.
Also, I'm not completely sure, but is that a drum loop sample in there? It just kind of sounds like one, even though maybe it's not.
~Valtrix, check out my stuff!
Thanks for the great review, I really appreciate it.
The bubble effect is some undesired effects from the mastering.
And yes, the drums are a loop, but the original loop sounds nothing like this. I sliced up the loop and made beats from it, so technically i made my own beat.
Thanks again for the awesome review, and i will check out and review some of your stuff!
There is some cool things in here, and I can totally tell that you're going for an atmospheric sound. However, I just feel like there's not enough sounds for this really to be an atmospheric piece. While listening I felt like it was one pad sustained, with some other semi-interesting effects there. Kind of hard to explain, but do you know what I'm saying? This could be cool with some other parts to help it move along.
Salut is both hello and goodbye, and is formal. So you're right.
But on topic, this song has some cool piano but some odd lyrics. I really like your stuff though :D I've been working on writing piano music, and have been getting mildly better. Haven't made any lyrics yet; that's next on my list. Hopefully I can be as good as you someday :P
Wow. A story alright.
I happened to just pick this song from the weekly top 5 songs. It's hard to quantify why, but I am truly amazed with it. Usually songs just sound really good, or cool, or whatever, but this says something more to me. It's not so much emotions, which I feel quite often during songs. This is different. I feel the story here--not just emotions or a cool beat. It's truly wonderful to experience something like that, and it unfortunately doesn't happen quite enough. Thank you for providing me with this.
Hey cool. I make a jazzish song, and you happen to have that kind of sound too. This is obviously a lot more laid back though. I really like how it flows. It feels like it goes somewhere to me, which is sometimes a hard quality to find. I feel like I'm exploring somewhere. And it's long, but there's a lot of diversity in here and I could listen to it for quite awhile.
Now, there's a lot going on, but it fits together really well and doesn't really feel chaotic. Good job with that! I really like the voice that comes in later in the track. It's pretty clear actually. I don't like the incomplete ending though D:
Certainly better than my stuff xD Sorry I can't offer my suggestions.
jazzish is the way forward, waahgwandemtings
Before I forget...
So, before I forget I have to review you. I don't really know what to say, because ambient is a really hard genre to judge. More than anything, it has to play on how it makes you feel. I think this does a good job at the atmosphere though, so there's no issues there. It's just supposed to be a simple, yet relaxing tune. The piano is done really well here--You picked some nice notes. Transition around 1:20 is a bit odd, but not too bad. It has somre really good variety with the percussion after that. The humming near the end could have been done a little better I think--it was pretty much all one volume and sort of gave a "robotic" feel, which clashed with how the rest of the song felt.
So in short, good job at getting your emotion through in this song, and because of that, it works.
uh, yeah I'll work more on that 'humming' instrument. I've got lots of comments about it, and it all helps
thanks for the review!
Yeah, I know. I think Newgrounds adds extra spaces to songs, even though there's already enough there.
This loop has a very strange sound to it--Not quite sure how to place it. I know it's a loop, but I was kind of hoping for it to go somewhere. Like, you had the cool distorted synth that would slowly come in, but it didn't expand much after that. It was kind of all over the place, so it would have been nice if it had some more direction too. Though, maybe that was the atmosphere you were going for? The percussion is good at reinforcing the beat, and the sounds are pretty decent.
Well, hope I helped somewhat. Check out my music if you can get the chance!
For the most part, it was just something short that I threw together. Fruity Loops would play it over and over and I just thought it sounded like a decent loop. And I guess I'm always over eager to put up new material. I'm pretty satisfied with the result, but I do appreciate your feedback. I know I'm nowhere near to making masterpieces, so feel free to listen to my stuff and pick it apart critically
This is very hectic, but still put together well. I like how it all comes together. The drums are hard and precise, and sound perfect. The synth is pretty ominous sounding too, and fits well on top of the drums. The bell that comes in is really nice sounding too, and gives it a little more variety.
About the only think I'd like to see would be some more varied sound/sound effects. I think that could put some more interest into the song, though it's already pretty good.
Sorry I couldn't provide more helpful information. Don't know this much about this genre :P Check out my music some time if you have the chance.
thanks for the advice... Again this is my first DnB so i still need a grasp of what to add...and what not to... I tried to vary it up by adding in the eerie bells, i thought that sounded ok.
Thanks for the review
This really surprised me. I was expecting a heavy metal song, like the genre said, but got something completely different. I'm guessing that was a slip of the hand?
This had a really relaxed feel to it, but it was very driving at the same time. The parts blended together really well, so I applaud you for that. And they also created a really nice atmosphere.
One thing is that it does get a bit repetitive after awhile, even if it is still pretty cool. Would have liked to see a little more variety in there. That would have made it much better in my opinion, either that or just cutting it a bit.
Sorry I can't offer up a whole lot more of advice, not that great at giving feedback. However, would you mind checking out my latest song? Thanks!
Nope, wasn't a slip of the hand. This song is originally Metallica's. They are metal, I covered it, (I mainly submit metal) and I did a synthed cover of it. I actually put down my guitar, and tried it. So I figure it can go in the genre of the original song (metal, all be it...softer) and also, the genre where I submit all of my stuff to. But thank you for an excellent review. This will be resubmitted very soon with vocals as well. Please stay tuned for that.
I'll stop by your page and return the favor. After all...I think I'm still the "leader" of the "Most Audio Reviews" thing. haha.
Thanks again, man\m/
I really liked this actually. The recording was solid, so there was no issues on my computer. (Assuming this is a recording anyway :P) The chorus was pretty catchy, but it had enough to it to keep it pretty interesting. I could really see this as part of a song with lyrics/drums/etc, as this guitar part is really good. And for what the song is, you did a really good job. I'm not very familiar guitars, so I can't offer up a whole lot of suggestions there.
Mind checking out my music too? ^_^
