"Couldn't get smaller without losing quality"
LOL, sorry but that made me laugh pretty hard. There isn't really any quality in this song, I'm pretty sure only mp3's are allowed at this time on NG AP so there are some pretty crap samples here. Otherwise, I like the arrangement, a bit repeditive, but there's enough to keep things flowing. A fun listen for what it is, even though it's not anything special for NG it's a 4
Not all the reviews say it is
People say they can't find anything wrong so I thought I'd just give out a few things
1. Volumes could of been fixed up, especally on that starting synth to my left ear
2. It sticks WAY TO CLOSE TO THE ORIGINAL SONG, something done alot here on NG but on real VG Mix places like OCR & VGMix
3. A whole lot of fixed instruments, no real panning at all
4. Oh my god does it get repeditive and tiresome after only a little bit of time, you could of done some MASSIVE cutting into this
5. Through the whole thing it basicly plays the same parts over & over minus or plus a few things
6. Very very cheap sounding synths
Now for NG this is a 4, for a real VG ReMix site you're going to have to step it up by putting original stuff into your songs and editing the original notes. After reading the reviews I thought I'd hear something better, but no just overhyped NG music again.
(P.S: Not trying to say, "HEY NUBZ HE REALLY SUXZ()RS LOL!" Just pointing out you still have flaws to overcome before you move on to some real mixing
hooray! you decided to comment on this song which was done OVER A YEAR AND A HALF AGO!!!!! lol
it was one of my first submissions and youre right, for NG this rocks, but for real life it need some more improvemnt. look for a "tetris dirty remix" which should be out soon! :)
Pretty fun for a bit...
Then, sadly, it gets repeditive. There's a feeling that you could of done more with the song, more instruments, more time on the mastering, that kind of stuff. Not to mention I just hear Mono, which isn't good for a song.
Still I enjoyed it, better than most stuff people are doing here. Tell me whenever you have a new song or work in progress and I'll try & help, just email me or get my AIM from my profile.
Yes I agree with the mastering, I dont think i did that to my best potential
Good song, could of been better
I liked the ideas you had with the notes and such. Sadly that bass was just too damn loud and distracting, even though it is a good bass sample. The piano felt as if there was no reverb on it, which really takes away from it's realism and mabye some panning might of been good. Same on the strings, but instead of panning you could of also kept the piano on the right ear and had the strings jamming on the left
I did enjoy the forest in the background though, even though it would of sounded better with the crickets more to my left & the owl more to my right
The drums where alright...but I bet this was just a Dr.REX playing your drums, which is sad because I hate preset drums but they worked good, mabye too mono but still good
The arrangement isn't really original, but for an NG song it works good, I just wished there was more variation in it other than pretty much the same loop played twice, you really could of cut this down to be a smaller song and still just as good
My last problem was that this could of been a full song but you didn't take that extra effort into really finishing it, just left it as a loop and let it out saying, "look world, MUSICS!" That's alright but you could of done better with this
Still, it is a first try with new software, and for an NG song this is pretty good, if you have any questions ask me
Wow, you must know a lot about Reason. I don't know too much about mastering and enhancing, but I am trying to get better at it. Thanks for the tips.
Its a great overall feel. The only thing holding the song back is the samples you use. They're not "UGH OMG HORRID" but they could be improved, I shall send you some ;)
Super Neato Bandito
Well its a nice loop but theres only 4 instraments I can hear and for a loop thats meant to be played over and over it could use some more stuff to keep the listener interested. Also the main synth is a bit to loud for me and your drums could be a bit louder also, just experiment
hey, thanks for the review! there are actually quite a few instruments, but they are mostly background stuff and you are correct that you're only hearing about 3 or 4 of the main ones. if you listen carefully, there are strings, a harmony synth, little clicks here and there that pan left and right, and other little tid bits in there. it would also help to listen to the full version 'Valiant'.
i tried to keep it simple for the most part, like an old 16-bit videogame. the reason the drums are pulled back so much was because i thought they were a little harsh sounding at a higher volume.
anyways, i'll try to keep your suggestions in mind when making my future loops. thanks lots! cheers an g'day.
Doesnt diserve anything less than a 5/5 or 10/10 i have no problems with this
WoW! not world of warcraft, i was gonna say simply Wow, but i fucked uåp on the shift button. wow, who cares? thanx alot for ur scores though, i REALLY appreciate them ,and i guess u enjoyed the song too! :D
Very cool drums and synths, my only gripes is you could have played with the instraments a bit more and gotten some more instraments in, it also sounds too much like the original...very midi-ish quality...but hey its cool so 5 for you =D
hahaha check out the date on this submission - it was submitted OVER A YEAR AGO! I think that would explain a lot an dthe fact thats its in the top 5 is next to amazing. But thank you for the review pavo it means a lot coming from someone such as yourself!
Nothing really bad...just been done alot before, a 4/5 from me ^_^
:) good enough for me..
Where do you find all these clean synths and stuff? Very very nice, much much better than what normally comes through NG, relaxing, great samples, not too repeditive, very soild overall no real problems for me ^_^
Thanks man, I made this with Fruity Loops, quite a versatile program if I do say so myself.
Thanks for the review, I am glad you liked it.
