Did I do an alright job of mastering the piece? (SKYPE ME!)
Well since its your birthday and all...guess I'll have a wee listen and review as I listen...here we go.
0:00 - Fun start, quite mysterious. The panning is quite nice too, good use of the sonic space.
00:40 - Very playful though, reminds me of something we'd hear in Disney's Fantasia.
01:13 - Hmm, the theme hasn't changed. The lack of variation is a tad disappointing.
01:31 - Glock is here now. Its a nice new feature but still not much variation going on.
01: 49 - New melody introduced. Its quite sweet but its in the same key. It wouldn't hurt to perhaps modulate and try something new.
02:12 - I guess this is the "cresendo" of this piece. Its nice but again we have seen little to no variation in the main theme.
02:44 - Coming to a slow finish, nice way to wrap up the piece with the glock sounding us out.
All in all its a nice little tune. Some more variation would have made this lovely and even perhaps a build up to a orchestrated cresendo with a full string section could have burst this to life. It would have really driven home the waltz feel to the piece.
All in all though it was very nice, well written despite no modulation or any real variation in theme.
Maybe learn to make the instruments your own a bit more? I have EWQL too and I could pick those patches out easily enough, you need to play with reverb a bit to give them more space.
Great work though, well written for sure.
Happy Birthday :)
I thought about using the ewql samples for the clarinets and flute but garritan had a better sound as to the effect I wanted. i do agree I should/could add strings, that and modulation. But I was quite keen on this piece and afraid to ruin what I had going. Although I think I found my niche which is working with woodwinds for now. Strings are something I will slowly settle in to to try and integrate in to my music. I just for now rather have strong pieces without strings then weak songs with strings. This review was very enlightening thank you. And thanks for the happy birthday!
Absolute garbage. . .
5/5 and Downloaded.
Yeah... sorry about that.
Thanks for commenting man
This is cool, its got a nice vibe to it. I've never played Super Metroid so I don't know what the original sounds like but this still has a nice feel to it.
you,.. you never played super metroid? :O wow!
glad you enjoyed this tho, its almost like the original just remastered :D
but,... never played super metroid?! xd
More like "Attack on MIDI" heuheuheu...
No but seriously its better that you explore the art of transcribing music yourself instead of relying on MIDI files on the internet.
Putting aside the fact that its just a drop midi into your DAW and slap synths on approach, its not a bad remix.
Not enough bass really but the lead synths don't sound too bad.
Anyway all I'd say is work on creating music yourself from scratch, it'll benefit you more and will help you to make better remixes. Keep at it!
Actually I watched different piano video's for hours transcribing each note. Aside from that picking up every note I slapped shit and turned knobs bla bla. I lived streamed me making everything.
Lol I'll try better at remixing music though I like making my own shit instead of something that was already thought of and out there.
God this was awesome...
The rap could be mixed into the song better, maybe double the voice on the first word of each line?
The female voice is mixed horribly into the mix. Its very dull and lacking in the high end of the EQ spectrum as well as its timing is quite poor. The female vocals themselves are not bad, its just mixed poorly into the mix. You need to get a better recording as well as time it better then it will sound awesome.
The song isn't bad, its quite repetitive but everything sits where it needs to sit in the mix.
Not bad guys but keep working at it and be sure to fix those female vocals then you will have a great song!
Umm..so like...its good? But I'm going to to fanboy all over your dick and give you 5/5...
Its cool, but for sure work at it.
Spam for the sake of spam?
you don't understand the subtext.
Cool some new DnB, lets see how it is.
Intro is nice, it sets a nice mood and pace to the piece, almost peaceful atmosphere.
00:44 we start to reach a climax, not a massive fan of the chords you chose here but it works I think. The beat is cool, maybe add a tiny bit more variation time to time, like maybe a extra kick?
01:31 things are getting a bit more lively but still the same chords and little to no variation, very repetitive.
01:53 we're back to the original theme, again I'm not sure about those bass notes but it fits the piece.
The song is short overall and could have used some more variation for sure, perhaps another synth melody line and a stronger bass? Maybe some pads?
Anyway for your first DnB this is a very good attempt, keep it up for sure and am looking forward to your next one.
Wow, thanks for the long review!
helps me alot :D
