Its alright for what it is
This is hardly ambient. This is more techno than anything.
I don't really know genres yet, so...
This was intersting...
Despite the bad sound of the guitar effect, it had a nice percussive effect that added a nice syncopated feel. My biggest question is, do you know scales or do you just experiment with the notes? Some of the piano stuff sound a bit off going over the guitar. However there were some lovely tones and chord progressions at around 2:40
Like some of your other stuff there is some good musical ideas with bad sound generators.
One thing i did like that i would have liked to have heard some more off was the weird effect added to the guitar at 00:38 then 2:53 and then again a few bars later, I love interesting stuff like that, what effects did you add if i may ask?
My main problem is the sound of the guitar, some people like Slayer, but it just sounds ameturish, as it is not a very good plugin personally. Other than that you have some very interesting compositional techniques.
to be honest i don't remember the plugin i used for the weird effect. i think it was something called reeth? maybe idk and then i just played with the velocity and attack and stuff...anwho i kinda like the guitar sound for slayer. i only use it cuz i don't own onr have the money for any decent guitar recording mics and software. college tends to find ways of finding my money and taking it with out me noticing. and yes i know a few scales. mostly pentatonic and the rest is just experimenting with notes til i get it right. i just a few months ago picked up making songs and a few different programs for do just that. what would you recommend for a broke college student to get thats better that Fl studio and audacity??
Haha this was great
I actually really enjoyed this. The flute was cool. This song reminded me of the music they use in some of those older pixar shorts. This maintained my interest but it was a bit short.
this was actually the very first song i every made. i did it in audacity with the usb headset that came with the game SOCOM. that was a decent mic but one of my friends broke it.
I dont usually listen to this sort of stuff
I don't usually listen to House or Dance music much.
However there were some good musicological techniques used. Your different sections do flow well which is something a lot of people struggle with doing. I liked the increase in texture (layers of different sounds)
The peice built quite well and there were some interesting sound effects.
Again i would have to recomend you play around a little more with your EQ's and try adding some Reverb to some of your plugins, what program do you use?
Try adding a little bit of low end to your bass instruments and removing the very low end of ALL your other instruments. That will help bring the bass out in your mix, plus most rhythm instruments dont even need the very lowest frequencies.
There were good musical ideas in this peice, so what really sets it back is the quality of the production, which does sound weak. But practice practice practice and your peices will sound more proffesional.
Thanks man your input on my songs means A lot. I'm used to people telling me "That sounds sweet" and giving little else as far as input is concerned. I mainly use Fl studio 7 producer addition for a majority of my songs and I use audacity for some others.
I liked the start, the drums sounded good.
What did you use for the guitars?? It sounds a bit like Slayer, if i were you, i would steer clear of using it. It just doesn't sound good. I would replace it with a different plugin, even though that would probably make it less rock.
I gave it 6 because there are some good musical ideas, and a good use of homophonic texture (rhythm and melody lines played at the same time)
However you should look up some articles on mixing, theres tons of resources on the internet, and stay away from artificial guitar sounds.
Thanks man. I'd greatly appreciate it if you would give me some input on some of my other songs.
Did you play those instruments (im not sure whether it's a type of guitar, sounds indian)
Because if you did, then you rock mate.
This was one of the most complex musical peices i've heard, the only thing i didnt like was those stops at 1:27, they sort of killed it for me, but it picked back up.
Nice use of percussion and your expressive techniques are tight.
Nice riff and over all some pretty nice recording. Can you tell me whats recorded and whats synthesised?
Sort of reminded me of Paul Gilbert and a bit of Satriani at the start.
A couple of things, The lead guitar could be mixed a bit louder that would definately improve the peice.
The bass guitar had a nice hollow, metallic tonal quality.
What program did you use to put this together?
Super Music Looper
Its a very catchy song i found myself listening to it a lot.
You have a very unique quality to your songs, lots of classical harmonies that have a different quality to the ones in most pop songs.
The chord progression here was also used in a fun and exciting way, really captured that really captured that carnival feel. Your sustained notes also contrasted nicely over the short duration of the chords played in the background.
The only thing i didnt like was the pronounciation of roller coaster in some places, the hard sounds just werent clear enough for me, but that must have been difficult having to sing it so fast and it was still really good.
Good use of a musical theme and variations on that theme. However i would have to agree with Melt down below, There were to many breaks for me to vote 10, it was an interesting idea but it was over used.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm not at all unhappy with the 8 :)
Great music.... but not something id listen to ever again...
