Wow, great track - very sophisticated. Perhaps it would be even more so if you used a high pass or bandpass filter on the kick/bass sprinkled throughout the song, as well as in the beginning.
Wow this is incredible! The atmosphere is so unusual and very much unlike much I've heard before. Contrary to the reviewer below, I find that the clicks are actually really nice - rather, I find the title to be unfitting. It just doesn't capture the artistic content of this piece. The percussion is done really nicely in my opinion ( I think base drum needs something a little punchier though). As for other effects, I think some vocal stabs would add a lot to the artistic effect you create here. Please see Stephen J Kroos - Reperfusion for some ideas for vocals. And while I absolutely love the lead sounds, others might like to hear some stronger sounds once in a while (please please keep those wonderful leads). For some ideas, you might want to look into Andrew Bayer - Nexus 6 (though, I think you create here quite a unique atmosphere that you should keep). Anyway, I hope you keep on producing amazing tracks like this!
Thanks PrEmoEffect! You are one of the first artists I really liked and followed on this site - on my old account thatbennyguy. I pm'd you with my crap album once and you listened to the whole thing - and even gave notes! You're the man, and your production skills are unique and unparalleled. Cheers bro and hope to keep hearing from you!
Hey, this is an interesting sound. I would really work with that bell sound and bring out out more. You don't need to have it play all the way through a song to make a main theme though. (Think of it as a chorus). For the pads, I would try to use some stereo separation next time (it would make them sound very spacy, which would be fitting for this song). On the other hand, I think you could use some improvement for the beats, but those take a lot of work. One thing I would try to work on right away is the base and the type of energy you are looking to put out (here the beats actually made the song feel slower (the beginning is amazing :))). You could try to make some drumstep, if that's what you're into. I think it would fit well with the song. Anyway, I hope this helps!
yay im so glad you reviewed it. the intro and the chords are my favorite part of this song. it seems that everyone is tellin me that my drums suck lol i kno they do. i will bring out the bells and try to make the pads seperated. as for the beat im going to leave that up to someone else. i have a friend who said he would remix it. im so glad i made this song. so much good has come of it. thanks for reviewing
Holy crap, this is really good. It's extremely catchy and doesn't feel cliched. Love it!
Love the remix. The bass/lead and kick are very tightly woven. Overall great job!
The kick and subkick roll in the beginning is really nice. I would opt for a more house-like clap. Ironically, something like this would sound very good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toqmn2 VqzaA. (for the clap/snare). What types of synths are you using? I think it would help a lot to check out some tutorials, and if your in for getting new synths, try out sylenth1. Here is a great example (tutorial) that shows what types of sounds you can make: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPi3M-
fgbKI. Around 4:00 I can really feel the melody, and the type of potential you have, so I would really just work on your sound design to really bring out the melody nicely. Hope this helps! Good luck with your work.
Thanks for the review! Sorry for the late response, I've been busy lately. And the synth I used for the percussion comes in a kit, and the clap was part of the kick. My program doesn't have many good kicks, but I'll be sure to check out the links you gave me when I find the time! I'm also glad that you noticed the subkick roll, which is essentially a bassline in itself, haha.
Wow omg, is right.
You have to finish this! However, I do have a couple of comments if you don't mind. I feel like the "8 bit" lead needs some reverb after the spacy plucks leave around :25. I do have to say that the plucks were used very well from :20-:25 (and also in the intro, where the introduction of different sounds were amazingly done). There definitely needs to be something airy throughout the rest of the song though! That's just my two cents, but I would finish this haha, but sometimes that's too much to expect I know ;).
Really nice themes
I really liked Last Chances (Rising Version) a lot. I think some more variation would be really beneficial (it's a lot of work, but it really would be worth it). I also really like the transition from Last Chances to Church of Hope. I think if you were to put parts of Church of Hope into Last Chances with that transition, it would be really nice (especially when returning to the main theme).
I think the EQ could use a bit of work. The low frequencies are not balanced very well (they have stereo phasing which makes them more "voluminous" than necessary. Some of the lower upper frequencies (like 10k) should be brought up a bit more. And mixing to preserve the balance between the different instruments would be nice as well.
Hope this helps!
Thank you, because of Newgrounds 15MB limit I had to be careful so I was limited. I really would like to make more variation thou, and I was going to put COH into Last Chances before it changed into the main theme but I didn't want to over do the theme, and as for the EQ, volume and mixing I'm working on something to make my future stuff sound better. c:
There is something characteristic about fl sounds
:p. I would use different sounds. Try to learn about how to eq well. That'll be a must. But before then. I'd recommend looking into some tutorials for sound design because that's where all of your sounds will come from. Either that or become a sampling beast. Also, make sure you don't let your volume clip (aka don't let the db meter go over 0db. If you want it to be louder, increase the volume on the computer, and then master it later (using saturation if you want the full bodied sound). Hope this helps get you started.
Thx for the review! I will take this info seriously, much appreciated!
This is pretty good
Really love that bass. It's just too clicky to resist. The acid stabs though could be improved imo. I think reverb and delay will give it a nice airy feel. Those intro sound fx give a lot of room to the mix. I think you should use those throughout the mix to create sections with a dry sound, and others with a roomier sound. Anyways, I hope this helps a bit. It's not too much I know, but just keep producing. I think you have talent.
