Again, repeating what Cyber said, a little more detail would be a good idea. Nice premise tho, enjoyed the movie, unexpected too ;)
Man I'd rate this product a 13/420
If there was a product.
I must say, this version of Hydrocity is really neat! I love the fact that you even added in lyrics and a nice slow style beat to it. I love remixes like this, and yours really sold it to me. It sounded original while also sounding like Hydrocity. My only gripe about it is the drums. I would suggest getting something just a little clearer, the samples you use sound very static-y and overall just slightly ruins the piece. However, the rest of the track sounds awesome, especially the little seagulls and ocean sounds. 4/5 From me. Came from: R4R.
Hey thank you very much for that! My objective every time is to remain similar while also unique. I did have a slight problem with the drums, but its not just the drums, it's distortion balance, all throughout. Truth is, I'm using a program so retro (Cakewalk Kinetic 1, 2004) that some controls are super sensitive an d registration is very differential. For instance, in order to make everything balance with the rest of the song, the drums you hear here are at 52% Distortion Gain. At 53% it was way too overwhelming, but at 51% you'd get no bass whatsoever. Its odd. I am still trying to learn how to balance it out. Perhaps there's some detail I'm overlooking.
Thank you again for an honest review! I'm definitely taking this to the future
This is an amazing song! Idk why it doesn't have WAY more views! Keep up the good work! ;3
And rip GD xD
Alrighty, this beginning is pretty cool. with the mix of synth and strings! Pretty nice if I say so. Nothing really much to say about it. The chords are good.
The transition isn't really... well, nice. Yes, it isn't in your face, but you'd have to listen to it a few times to realize it is one. However, this is video game style. I give you a pass for that xD
In fact, instead of reviewing this song, I'll just listen to it. It's so calming and relaxing but at the same time, it's got a boss-fighty feel to it. Some of the transitions do overpower the mix a little. And that note transition at 1:50 kinda throws me off.
The good: The drums are good. And that piano! Beautiful! You can add some velocity to make the piano sound more natural, but other than that good! And the guitar is not too overpowering. And that pause is just soo sick. And the cutting of melodies. Beautiful in my opinion.
The bad: Some of the chords really don't match right. Maybe that's what you were going for, not sure. Some transitions and leads can take over everything sometimes. Mainly just a lil mixing problem, easy to fix.
Good job, you get a 4.5/5! If you want a full scale review chart and what you need to do,PM me or just comment back saying you want that xD
Mainly, just mix and master a little better and make some adjustments and you've got some quality VG music right here.
Aw thanks for that kind and helpful review ! <3
Yeah I love mixing electro and orchestral stuff, it's kinda my motto.
I tried something quite new for this transition, but I'm not a fan either. :P
I totally missed 1:50, I don't even know why I did that ! X)
Got that advice on velocity ! ;)
Well to be honest it's a really great review ! Maybe the only thing I would like to know is what pause are you talking about, and what not matching-chords ?
Thanks again friend ! I luv u ! <3
