It's not bad- almost worth the wait
It's a little slow and takes a while to build up, but what's added seems to be pretty solid; it fits in well. If I may call each time you add in or remove a little jig, my suggestion would be to possibly add/remove the instruments every time the initial tune repeats.. as far as i can tell, things get changed every 2nd tune, so this might help it progress a little faster.
You obviously have skill with the beats and all though, with a variety of skills, such as background/bass noise, changing a sound from left/right speaker effectively, and timing. So I have to say I'd like this a whole lot better if it wasn't in excess of 4 minutes, as it is a bit long to wait, despite it getting good at parts.
So all I think needs working on it is speeding it up a tad (sorry if i just repeated that 3 or more times in this review >.<).
But it's good! Will look forward to more work from you =)
If I get bored some day I'll remix this and definitely consider what you said. thanks for the review.
Uhm... I don't know =X
Seems a little bit unplanned. The quality of the clip wasn't bad... Occasionally in the beginning (maybe later too, I'm not sure) you could hear a bit of breathing into the microphone, and I'm decently sure it wasn't intentional.
Back to it being unplanned... At the beginning, I would safely say you were doing different versions of "You got mail", which is okay I guess. However, about halfway through, starting from before someone says "thats", it becomes a half script as if it suddenly became a dialogue between 2 people. I say do one or the other.
Overall, not a bad idea and I can tell there's some decent voice acting too.
Yea, the mic is over 7 years old and sucks horribly so yea. Breathing might be because you have to yell in it sometimes for it to work and whatnot. Trust me it's me al lthe time, there is no second person and thanks for the review.
Awesome, I likes it much!
Indeed though, the pauses inbetween the parts of the song either needs to be shorter, or an uh... stretchy thingie should join them... hopw you understand what I mean :P (sorry, not a music person).
Overall, the music was nice to listen to, and quite a happy song. I also enjoy the ending with the bass and all. Awesome work :)
Yup, I know exactly what you mean for those breaks... though I haven't found a nice synth for it yet... still looking. Thknks man!
Hmm... Is this really a loop?
I don't know if it's still a loop if you just end the song ;)
Anyways, I like the build up. Very effective, and it sounds awesome. Too bad it's a demo, I can't wait until the "real" thing. The chords are very nice, and fit the piece very well. In fact, it almost seems uplifting with the build up. A happy-ish tune.
I like the combination of different synths. It might be a mattter of opinion, but i think it could sound nice if you switched chords using say... strings... of some sort, but it might be just because i like strings. Nice work though! :)
hmmm, strings bass line... I like it. I'm a personal favorite of the double bass too :D Thkns!
Seems like a trickling stream
I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I feel it's more like a trickling stream... in slow-mo. Not that that could really fit into a title... "Hey, have you heard A Trickling Stream In Slow-Mo?"
Back on topic. Background sounds would indeed be appreciated. Maybe kick off the song with solely the sound of a stream. For the music to seem more watery, I'd suggest going up a few notes/octaves and pressing lighter. Like light dancing, as it seems a bit forceful around 4:45 when your attempting to press many keys very rapidly. I'd work on the rapid part too. Seems a little out of time.
Overall, very enjoyable. Good work. :)
I hadn't really considered the notion of water-based sfx.
"For the music to seem more watery, I'd suggest going up a few notes/octaves and pressing lighter. Like light dancing, as it seems a bit forceful around 4:45 when your attempting to press many keys very rapidly."
Fair point. My keys are stiff and that didn't help...
"I'd work on the rapid part too. Seems a little out of time."
Yeah, it almost definitely isn't perfect - I don't use a metronome or anything and a lot of this piece is semi-improvisational. (The late middle/end isn't really in stone.) I guess I can't improvise and keep stuff in time simultaneously. :-(
Thanks for the awesome review.
A tad repetitive
It's decent, but it also gets a little repetitive. However, you did use quite a few instruments, and that's a good thing. I'm also not quite sure about the rush in this... It seems to drag on a little too long for that. Maybe a little explosion of things 3/4 of the way through the song.
Some nice SFX would've been nice... some fade in and out, more distortion... But all in all, it was alright work. :)
Yeap, it's alright
Ok, so you got the basic concepts of rhyming in the song, but you should revise how the song flows, since on some lines your speaking really slow, then really fast, then slow again. I feel this occurs on the third line of most of the verses, but maybe it's just me.
"Holy fuckin cow" (if you notice, it's the third line of one of the verses)
I feel that the fuckin isn't particularly necessary, as it makes it more vulgar (although that's opinion) but more importantly it makes you have to rush to say it, where as I believe it'd flow better without it.
In addition, back to rhyming, I'd suggest not putting any word that rhymes "just because", for example:
"I'm rasing my right eyebrow
Get on that right now"
It doesn't... flow right. Either way, this was an alright song. Good work :)
It has a nice beginning... the notes (the single notes) were seemingly a bit off-pitched. It was pretty good, and I'd get it for my playlist, but it sorta continued on and on and on... really annoying... Sorry, if you can build on this, it may become recognized. Add variety, both instruments, and notes, and this could become something great.
Nice... I like it.
Slow, nice flow, good variety of instruments for a good score. I like the simplicity. Unfortunately, only a 7 because it's relatively short, and it seems relatively easy to make (I'm no music pro) but I still love it. Ah... another issue. The ending is a little... unsatisfying... No solutions here, but otherwise, I very much love it. Keep working on new ones! I gave you a 7, but it's a low 7... bordering on 6. Benefit of the doubt! As I said, keep working hard!
Awesome. I love it.
Not really on topic, but Transmigration (personally, not that much of a 'game') gives this song a whole new perspective.
This song gives one a lot of everygy. It's full of adventure. I especially love the build ups and the sudden bursts. Awesome.
