You've got some really cool ideas here. The vocals sound awesome. The chord progression reminds me a lot of Clubbed to Death by Rob Dougan. Maybe that's what inspired you? If you've never heard of it before I urge you to check it out. There's this haunting piano section about 3 mins in that may sound reminiscent.
Thanks alot man! You are spot on with what song I got inspiration from, haha :D I love the piano part in Clubbed to Death!!
Sweet melodies. Super smooth. Makes me happy.
The beat adds a really cool element to it but its not overbearing, so you can focus on the piano. Only thing I think can be improved on is the sound of the actual piano itself; maybe play with the volume levels a little so it sounds less artificial.
Very nice work all around!
Man, this is freaking massive. Nice work. I love the orchestral instruments; choir, strings, piano it all sounds fantastic. Can I ask what VST(s) you're using for those, actually? They sound way better than anything I have.
I love the church-bell at 4:00 or so.
That synth that comes in at 5:25 is seriously bad-ass.
This whole track is great. The samples, percussion, composition and mastering all sound meticulously and skillfully done. I applaud you, sir.
Awesome work, this sounds extremely well done. You didn't really slip up anywhere, the song was consistently awesome through out the whole thing. This song doesn't even get remotely repetitive, which is a huge contributor to its awesomeness.
I really like the side-chaining on the base. It's definitely not over the top, a mistake a lot of people tend to make. I was wondering, how are you getting that sound? There must be a vst or something for that kind of side-chaining, cause it really doesn't sound like it's from compressing the kick.
The synths that you used are awesome. Along with that, so are your transitions: they're just simply kickass, and original sounding. Also, despite what people are saying, I think the vocals at the beginning sound sweet.
As for sidechaining, its just a kick layered with a sub with the bass eq set to maximum. Not joking at all, i just slapped a compressor on it so it doesn't clip and it sidechained everything!
Thanks for the review :)
Wow, this is great.
For starters, that bass-line that you start off with is kickass. It's really what pulled me into the song, and it couldn't have been done any better in my opinion.
The percussion is added subtly in the beginning and just sounds really, really cool. Great job on that.
The lead you've chosen fits really well, too. Especially at 1:40, when the song really starts, it's just fantastic and very professional-sounding. Same goes for the synth at 2:20. That just sounds really cool.
I don't really have the energy to nit-pick stuff in this song at the moment hehe, but this song is just about flawless anyway.
Thanks for the positive feedback, i appreciate that after putting so much work into those synths :)
I probably should have reviewed this a long time ago, caused I've really liked it for a long time.
This song is just great, in so many ways. It's so fast, happy and upbeat; all great qualities of your music that I kind of envy, xD. You switch something up just about every 10 seconds, which makes it kind of hard to stop listening to once it's started.
Not like these aren't things you already know, lol. Great job!
Wow, this is just, great. Really. Everything you've done here is perfectly executed, especially the drums/bass.
You do a great job of mixing it up, but the melody does start to get a little repetitive about halfway through. I think it would have been fine ending it at about 2:35, but it's not that big of a deal.
First off, that kick is really screwed up, way too heavy. I'm not sure what you did to it to get the side-chaining effect, but it does not sound good, and is making the entire song glitchy. What did you do? Also, it has virtually no punch, making it sound kind of like a low, subwoofer bass. If you could just fix those problems, it would make the whole thing sound a ton better.
BUT, it sounds pretty generic anyway. You need to stray a little farther away from the original, mix it up a little.
That is all.
You didn't really do much here. You just took the midi and replaced it with a different lead, then gave it some cheap drums and a background to loop. This is by NO means a remix.
I can't really give you any helpful advice here, seeing as you're just lazy.
3 stars for that background melody you had going.
I'm kind of confused by this comment because If I was being lazy I could have easily put the regular song on here and call it my own but I didn't. You say its not a remix but I made a background and some "cheap drums" drums to go with it. If I was being lazy I wouldn't have made this background the "cheap drums". So I don't quite understand your definition of a remix. The reason I did have the background melody loop is because I wanted to give it that rave feel. Another thing I dont understand is if you don't like the song just go to a different page. Otherwise with this review your wasting my time and your own. I would say thanks for the feedback but I really don't see that to be neccessary.
I only have one word to describe this song.
