this is incredibly fun to jam over
that's a lengthy review....
wasn't too fond of the bright brass sounds, and I would agree that the melody was a little low in the register. I like the ambiance in the beginning, and the drum hats. Need more percussion on the left side. Nice feeling throughout, but for a song called lonely plains, the ending is quite cheerful.
Hmm, i'll try to make the melody an octave higher and see how that sounds :)
And the name.. yeah, i just write down what comes up in my head, so sometimes the name is fitting and sometimes.. it's not :p
Thanks for the review!
Even before the strings and horns came in, it sounded like a very professional movie score. The dynamics were utilized superbly. That low drone and reverse cymbols at the minute mark was extremely eerie and worked great as a transition. The silence fills in the drum line were unique and carried the energy of the song very nicely.
Woah. This is brilliant
Thank you! That low drone you hear is a pitch-bended didjeridoo- something ive never tried before.
I was wondering...
if you ever tried switching up the bell part to a different lead, since it is the only instrument, besides some pad and bass. I dunno, maybe tamper around with something more...synthy?
short answer: no
long answer: no, because this was exactly the sound I was going for...spaced out, sparse, leaving the listener's own mind to fill in the blanks. All the pad I really wanted was the ringing feedback from the piano. And in terms of synths, hell no. Much prefer the acoustic sound.
its so abrassive. distortion on bass is usually a very bad thing
drum layers were cool. there was a lot of semi-tones on those synth lines...
52 entries? damn!
once the drums come in. It layered very nicely.
The piano was a little grainy, and it is one of the first instruments introduced, so you might want to re-eq the lows(down) primarily. I also wasn't a fan of the delay on it.
There were some cool synth parts, at the 45 second mark. The solo synth at 1:30 sounds better with the filter on, it overdrives before that point. Good stuff.
thanks man :D
i gave you a zero
lol ^ ^ irony.
that was awesome
next time exclude the Justin Timberlake and Hall of the Mountain King snippets haha
really cool though, nice job. I might turn up the bassline up. Dug the Gorillaz
why thank you buddy! yeah some assorted stuff in there for everyone, i directed at a wide audience with different ideas and genres ^ ^ thanks man! :D thanks alot :D
I really liked how the oboe or w/e reed instrument that was came in. Timpani and crashes were definitely added alot to the feeling of this piece. Strings were placed well in the background, and the xylophone hits, thought sparse, brought out the melody nicely. I would use them more when possible.
The piano sounded a little grainy on the low end of the spectrum. Otherwise, very well done.
Finding a lost friend might be a more cheery occasion, but I liked your take on it.
Well, i had my doubts about the Marimba (not xylophone ;p), so i decided to keep it out the rest of the melody.
Thanks so much for the review!
basic beat, repetitive lyrics, cheesy synth lines...
of course this is number one of the week.
The shit with the vocals at 2:45 were the coolest part. Do that more
