Reminds of the old days.
Damn you Windows 7. Now I can't get my Thief fix.
A few things...
1. Try to shorten your buildups and if you can't do that, try not to limit them to changes in your drums (in other words, focus more on building up your melody).
2. A lot of the synth sounds seem like straight out of the box presets. I know it sucks to make your own, but your song will sound all the much more you if you make your own sounds.
3. Use original chord progressions! Anyone can use the Am C F G chord progression. If can create a progression that is uniquely you, it will make your songwriting all the better.
Kind of an average song, so it gets an average rating.
As a side note, your rhythm was good and you had a good choice of tempo.
Hmmm. but the chords aren't in a C F G progression, so....
I noticed people complained about volume automation. Rather than adjusting volume, change your velocities on individual notes, simple enough no? Of course that is assuming you are using FL. OF course all DAWs have this function. Anyway, sorry that I haven't reviewed much of your stuff lately, been busy getting ready for college. Good song, good emotion, like the minor scales. If you still have the project file, you could send it my way. Or the midi. I'd clean it up for you and add some background strings, which would be cake. Anyway drop me a line I'll get back to you in a few days.!
sure no problem. I do have the reference file, and I'll be sure to send it your way. :P
It is pretty awesome when a song can build on itself using only one instrument. Anyway, I would really love to collab some time, so drop me a line if you're interested, if not, no big deal. Once again, awesome job, best of luck in all your music making!
Thanks, lol would you believe me that I didnt use the same instrument for the progression. It would not have sounded to well built up like that. I used similar sounding instruments so that the blend would work well, but so that the higher pitches did not die out the lower pitches.
And I would love to do a collab with you. Sounds like some fun. I'll throw up a line for you ok.
