its pretty difficult to animate with such realism, you tackled it really well. that part where she fell into the smoke was probably my favorite part. i was craving some backgrounds though. it felt a little empty on that level. All in all you did a beautiful job on this one. 5'd
I agree with everything people are saying about the intro- great job on that. But i think the number one thing that's bringing the drop down is the snare. wayy too resonant and unchanging. I'd see what other snares you have in your inventory to see if there's a less imposing sample in there. Also i love that soft pad you have going every 8 measures or so, i think it could be brought forward a little more. Nice job overall for sure.
yea i really regretted using this snare, the tail is way too long for a 175ish bpm song, on headphones and monutors it sounds alright but on big subby systems it really gets obnoxious.
appreciate the thoughts :)
I feel like i'm playing an awesome infinity-scape style 80's game. Then the sax comes in and kinda reinforces that imagery. definitely sets the mood and mindframe. the only thing i think it's missing is some crispy and really nostalgic pads bending in and out of the chord progression. It's jammin at this point, but once you get some atmosphere and maybe reverbed echo tonal perc melodies in the background you'll have something full. It's clear that you've got some good improvisational skills cuz you can hear how direct the process must have been.
Thanks for the review! I agree, more pads bending in and out of the chord progressions would be sweet. The improv-styled solos were the most fun part of writing this song; it's why I love fusion jazz so much. Glad you liked it!
Hell yea man! This is sounding really nice. awesome variety of texture at the climax. the sine is beautiful. and once it really hit i was definitely into it. on the flip side, get some meat on those drums and fill out the bass, it needs more oomf.
i agree 100%, thanks for the review.
