I agree you should remove the brass. I would keep the brass melody and try new instruments until it fits the song better.

I really liked your loop though.

steampianist responds:

haha i will take that into consideration. thank you for listening

I really liked it. I sounded a little empty though. More background instruments would have been good. Also, you should have made a real ending instead of just stopping the song.

Sol responds:

It's not a song silly. XD

Also, you're gonna learn something new today! :) Kick-n-Bass=completely OK! The point in intros is to build up and set a mood.

thnx though

Nearly whole song felt like an introduction to a song rather than a complete song. I was waiting for something exciting to happen, and it didn't. I lost full interest in your song 3/4's in.

The mixing, panning effects, and instruments were good.

InvisibleObserver responds:

Too bad to hear this wasn't your cup of tea!

Please spend more time on your songs, especially on the instruments and mixing. If you're not sure what to do, youtube tutorials can help a lot. Or you can ask other newgrounds users.

No worries man, this was literally just me messing around for like 20 minutes. Not a real song from me at all :) Listen to Closer or Euphoria by Zenvo on SoundCloud to see my actual work.

The crashes were a little too loud. I think the song overall has a little too much reverb. Your melodies were very simple and weak.
I still enjoyed the song though :)

Sol responds:

I agree with you on the crash volume.

1. The song doesn't have reverb besides the lead, but I took off the wet on most of the layers so you wouldn't really tell.

2. You should never comment on one's melodies since that has nothing to do with producing. It's a taste thing. I am sorry you didn't like the melody, but the notes aren't random and are organized. So yeah, nothing is wrong in note choice.

This song was so relaxing and had some good melodies. I just wish the ending was more conclusive.

Blacklawn responds:

Wow, thanks! I'm really glad I was able to get your admiration despite that issue we had the other time with one of my songs.

And I'm working on a proper ending right now (I wasn't sure how to end it before)

I really like the reverb on the piano. I just wished it was softer at some parts of the song and had more variation on the velocity levels. Just when I thought the song was becoming repetitive, I heard more variation in the second half of the song. I'm really glad you did that. I really liked the ending. I love when a song ends on a nice and happy piano note and the song does not stop until the reverb and delay effects are done.

Blacklawn responds:

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I also wasn't entirely sure about the reverb when I put it.

It sounds mostly finished to me. The only thing I did not like was the chords. I've heard those chords so many times recently. I think you should put a little more time into the ending. Also, the song ends before the sound is finished fading out.

Xsalvaz responds:

Thanks. Many of the chords are rather common. I will definitely put more time into the ending.

How did you make the synths? I really like all of them. The reverb on the snares is amazing.

Sequenced responds:

most of the chippy sounding synths were done in 3x 0sc. I exported a couple of them and added them to a sampler and reversed it for a sick eerie effect. the rest were made in fl studio's hamor and harmless plugins.

I think you should add some high piano notes in the background behind the melody to make it sound better.

D-Chain responds:

great idea!
