Great video game music
Reminds me of F-Zero. I love it. :]
Thanks for the review! I never considered the F-Zero similarities before, but you might just be right. Maybe I should look into doing tracks for racing games now, that'd probably work nicely.
I like the transition at 0:23 and the bells. Overall, this piece gives me the feeling of a Mexican army approaching like in the battle of the Alamo. The swell of the trumpets is nice too. It really builds up the tension before the strikes. Loops well too. My only criticism is the title. It doesn't sound very silent to me. :P
I might change the name...i couldn't think of anything good. Any Suggestions?
I really like this piece; it's very calm and soothing. It reminds me of Kanon (the anime), and I think it would go really well as backround music.
As for the audio problems:
The distortion is caused when the volume is too loud. Try turning down the master volume or gain so that volume spikes don't crackle, or try adding a compressor to control the height of the spikes.
Overused samples from Garageband
The first cello loop was even used by Fort Minor in "Believe Me." Overall, I found this too disconnected. It doesn't really flow, and it sounds like just a bunch of loops in succession. My advice is to stay away from using only loops. Try to add in your own melodies, beats, etc. I started out this way too.
The drums could use some work. They sound really weak and a little boring. Also, you should get rid of that humming noise. Just keep working on it some more.
im no drummer lol, thts just me using th cp keyboard with garageband so ya ther boring and weak. but wat do u mean by the humming?
I love the way the intro slowly crescendos starting from an almost organ-like sound. It's very fluid and the see-saw between an almost cheerful tune and an eerily somber melody is great. Excellent piece.
Thanks, glad you liked it and I'm glad you reviewed this. I tried to add a little cheerfulness to this, cause I thought a graveyard is not all gloom, it can bring out good memories and stuff like that.
The transitions at 0:16, 0:32, 1:04, 1:20, 1:24, and 1:28 were very awkward. It doesn't flow very nicely. Also, since you used premade (and very frequently used) loops, I can't really give you much credit for originality. Also, I wouldn't consider this Drum N Bass since there's absolutely no bass. Overall, it feels really lacking. Great sound quality though. (And yes, I know this piece is over a year old.)
I'm running out of things to write in this box :\
The bass drum sounds very standard. I'm assuming it's one of the default ones in FL? The drums too. Maybe I'm just spoiled :P. Anyway, it's a good start. The lead synth was a little overpowering over the drums. I almost can't hear the claps. A snare hit along the with the clap might help it cut through mix better. This has the potential to be something really good. I voted a 4.
thanks man! I think about those things in the future!
Who reads summaries%u203D
The bass and drums really remind me of You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) by Dead or Alive. The synths sound very nice. It was a little short though.
Read the summary and you'll find out WHY it's so short... The drums also sound nothing like Dead or Alive, this is a GM set, they used a Linn LM1 Drum machine. The bass also sounds nothing like Dead or Alive... but whatever floats your boat. =P
The clavi sounds a little too robotic. Try adjusting the dynamics of the hits. Also, a little reverb might help it sound less harsh. The instruments sound very synthesized. If you want some decent free instruments try looking for soundfonts. FL Studio comes with a soundfont player, so all you have to do is load it into a channel. Good job! :]
Uh, i'm going to sound like a noob here, but what does "adjusting the dynamics of the hits" mean?
Pm me please!
Thanks for the help.
