Maybe on a better day, but I wasn't feeling it today.
I noticed you had sent me this via PM, so after some hesitation I went to check it out. I haven't been on here in forever... Around 2:45 it was good, until the bass rolled in... I've heard better, but I've heard worse too.
Well, I saw one of your responses mentioning you had a Trance song, so I looked it up. I am not very impressed. A very soft Trance, and fair for that, but it did lack some of the general Trance aspects. It sounds to me like I'm hearing too many claps, and not enough hi-hats. Your piano was also a little high-pitched, but that's a personal opinion, not critical. I also suspect that my headphones are not broken, and your piano is meant to come through in mostly the right speaker. I personally think the piano would be good if was a little more balanced, and maybe had a SLIGHTLY longer release. I also like Trance songs with a little more energy. But back to the critical analysis, I would suggest that you go with the usual Kick Hi-Hat Kick Hi-Hat for most of the song, and throw in claps for more energetic beats.
Anyway, 3.5/5, because it doesn't have much of a genuine Trance feel, in my opinion.
This is very similar to the sound I try to achieve in my newer songs. Sadly, I'm very bad with getting the energy into my songs. I will say though, this is a very nice peice of Techno. It's music you can move to. I still prefer Trance, music that moves you.
Definitely a good song, but not perfect.
I'm rating high today. Great song, and really deserves a higher score than what it has now. Give me a high-five, sir.
Thanks a bunch + I actually really enjoy trance too! I've made a couple of progressive trance songs titled "System 318," + "The Creator." Might be worth checking out in my audio submissions. High-five right backatcha!
I always love hearing remixes of this song. It's really hard to screw it up. I will say though, you threw a really different sound into this. Your drop needs a bit of work. It doesn't sound very pleasing to the ears at first. I suggest making it a little slower. Nothing too noticeable, but enough that it doesn't send your audience into shock, unless you're REALLY trying to get that effect. Personally I think there are better ways of that. Right after the drop, you may need a bit of volume adjusting and maybe a few changes to the instrument you use, because your primary pattern lacks the "Eurodancer Energy." Small adjustments you your bass can be made, but it sounds okay as it is. I also suggest something in your main pattern that will sort of 'complement' your main track. I don't know, like I said, it's hard to screw up this song.
Great remix, just a little bit of work needs to be done. Make it awesome.
Thank you so much for the advice! :D
I fixed a lot of the things you said, and I'm also working on finishing it.
Once again, thank you. :)
Can't rely on starting something like that. It makes for a good remix, but be sure to seperate your bass and such from the main pattern. Start with a simple intro, just the main beat or something, and have it slowly progress into this loop. Try using some effects to alter the loop as well, and changing the speeds.
More work, and it can be a very good song in time.
No vote on this, being a 14 second loop, but overall the pattern was nice. Lacked some energy though.
Your music is nice, not quite my style though. If you aren't contracted yet, you should find an agent and get your work out there a lot more. So, yes, why are you still here?
Also, I have a seperate question. Is your name F- seven seven seven, F seven-hundred-seventy-seven, or F - Triple Seven ? Or something else?
Still needs work
Really ought to be a 6, but considering it's a work in progress, I'll give it a 7/10. Your intro was long, but I suppose that's dubstep. If you want a real dubstep feel, you should try listening to the dubstep artists here, and in the mainstream world. Otherwise, you should try some of the lesser known, older dubstep artists for a different kind of feel.
Certainly no 4 of 5, but 7/10 for the fact that it's still a WIP.
i know that the intro wasn't so good, i just made a quick one, but when it comes to the music you gotta keep in mind that i wrote this in the style of gemini or flux pavillion :)
I'm being purely critical here, and it's turning out good for you. I don't love House so much, and I don't find this song to be remarkable to my tastes, but this is definitely real House. Real. House. If anyone were to ask me for an example of House music, I would throw this song at them. Critically, for House, it is a great song. Perfect score, because it's so good for the genre. Again, I don't like House, so it's nothing I find amazing, it purely fits everything that House should be.
Once More. This... is House.
Wow what acclaim.
Thanks so much for the kind words =]
its great to see that even though you personally don't like house, you appreciate it for the characteristics.
Great review indeed.
Good, I guess...
I'm rating a bit low, because it wasn't amazing. It was a very nice song, but not quite a powerful Trance. It needed some more intensity, I guess. A more dominant beat, that really goes through more than your ears. It needs to move you. As far as a critical opinion goes, I liked it, I could see the dubstep motivation a lot, and it may still have been better called dubstep. Good, but certainly not amazing.
7 for the good music, especially around the 1:13 area, and 1:31. It was made good, but could be better. 4 because it is certainly not a mid-range. It deserves a higher score than 3.
My goodness, I hate to rate something this low, and many people will probably disagree with me on this, but I felt it was the same two sounds repeating for 2 minutes. The only interesting thing was the end, where there sound faded. It was only unique part of the song. Again, I hate to give something a rating this low, but it seemed like it was all the same, the whole time.
It really should be less than a 5, but I can't make myself go lower.
You shouldn't be hesitant on your opinion. If i didn't deserve a five you shouldn't have given it to me.
I understand why you or most people don't like it, but it was made for a short flash, which is why its repetitive and it was meant to sound the way it does, grungy and distorted.
Thank you for your opinion nonetheless.
