Daydream [Remix] Daydream [Remix]

Rated 4 / 5 stars

pretty well done

You've gotta cut the extremely low frequencies on the bass, it really muddies things up. Certain types of speakers and headphones don't accurately represent the actual sound that is being played well or at all. You might want to think about sidechaining the low end specifically as well, there might still be some clutter between the bass and the kick. The melodies and gated pads are nice I'd say, and the track seems to flow excellently. The thing you probably need to work on most is mixing, but otherwise you're pretty solid.

I'm hearing some good things. Keep it up!

: )

Pretty solid melody work. I'd try to keep from compressing the whole entire song, I know it makes it sound heavy in the moment but if you individually work on the density of each track then you'll be surprised with how much more clear your mixdown is.

It's good though, don't get me wrong. ;) I'm pretty impressed.
Keep up the good work!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

cool

weird effects in beginning, I like em though ; )

Jazzy piano. You've got some nice pads in there, but you should widen them up a bit stereo wise. This sounds a bit more like liquid rather than IDM, but it's a good first shot nevertheless.


KgZ responds:

Thanks for the suggestion, man.


.HLS. The One Night (NG Mix) .HLS. The One Night (NG Mix)

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty good

Track starts off nice, decent sidechaining there. I'd add a little bit of reverb to the clap, the ending is very abrupt and the stereo width it has only accentuates that. The bassline is very smooth.. maybe too smooth? I'd give it a more rhythmic quality perhaps, play around with filters and maybe layer it with a different waveform with more harmonics. The plucky synth is alright, you back it up with some atmospheric pads to bring out the strength of the melody. The first drop is good, if you cleaned it up a bit I could see some deadmau5 vibes going. You probably shouldn't attempt the key change at 3:24, it doesn't transition well. Switching things up is key, but you have to be careful to not destroy the momentum of the song by making things too abrupt.

There are a couple things missing and you could definitely clean it up a bit, but you've got the basic ideas and with no time you'll be a pro at this ;) Keep it up my friend.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

good ideas

you need a bit more work filling up the frequency range and keeping the momentum going. Overall you've got some good ideas, but there's too much switching up of the beat to get into the track. Tightening up the break a bit might not hurt, there's a bit of an awkward swing that doesn't go well along with the other instruments.

1:22 was a really cool fill haha i don't know how you made that

good job though, keep working and you'll nail it eventually ;)

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty slick

I wasn't a huge fan of the really high bell synth, but the pads were very good and I enjoyed the synth line near then end. It had a very video game-like feel.


gregaaron89 responds:

omg it's cornandbeans :O You're like, teh inspiration for this song! (kinda)

Well that synth line, it's inspred by {Rose} XD The part where it doubles up at 3:12 especially.

Thanks for the review, first one i got on this song in 4 months :P

the fill at 0:13 is sick... keep it up


Pyroific responds:

i like it too :D thanks! im a fan of yours ;)


Help Me Up Help Me Up

Rated 5 / 5 stars

nice

I'd fill the gaps in the guitar riff though, try timestretching them just a tad. If you want a really chill sound you've gotta maintain the fullness and smoothness. If there are any gaps it kind of destroys the momentum of the tune. Try finding a deeper acoustic snare hit to layer under the one you've got right now, it doesn't have enough pop to it at the moment. Some reverb or delay wouldn't hurt on the vocal samples too :)

The ideas are all really good and in place, just try to make it flow a bit easier.

Farewell (Eclipse) Farewell (Eclipse)

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

nice

Everything sounds really smooth and almost hypnotic... Your drums have really good dynamics, but I would suggest linking them to an extra track using a compressor to smush the signal completely and layer it with the original drums with most of the dynamic quality.

I'll show you later in full detail if that was confusing :P

I really like this one though, very moody :D Great job.

You'd show me how to do that in reason? I thought you used FL? :)
