Piercing hi hat

I find the hi hat a little piercing for an ambient texture, maybe keep the mid lower would help? Then again i just like to keep a low mid on nearly everything. I like the fading hi hat idea though. I'm not sure whether the timing of the drums, should lay a more regular pulse the begining, just to establish themselves, before becoming more offbeat. The underlying bass is nice. I never quite know whether this is happy or not, i still feel like theres an underlying uneasyness about thios one. But that can still be good :) Anyway, more good work, hope to hear more ;)

the soudn that sounds a bit like a ray gun

its wuite good, but a bit annoying after repeats, mixing it differently could add to the song. And a it could suit a more reverb/chorus effect i beleive, make it sound a bit more like a background threat i think its trying to acheive, good work though :) Its a nice idea, nearly great. Keep it up :) x

Yeah I had a feeling it could grate on some people, generally I think mastering is the problem even though Ive made great progress improving it.

very good

I like it all, i think the melody loses a lot of its excitment being in 4/4, however ( it loses a lot of pace). The Voice used for it is excellent, nice and powerful and the rest aren't half bad either.
I'm learning this on classical guitar atm and hearing as a dance song makes me wanna try it out for myself as something like this.
So + Love your style and the hardhitting voices
+Good song choice
+The parts weave together very nicely
- Slightly repetetive, even though the melody is developed.
- the original melody just sounds a little slow in this context to me, if i had heard this without knowing the original, it wouldn't probably sound pretty fine though, just flouts the expectation i guess.

So, yeah, sounds really good, keep it up :)

Thanks. bringing up the pace i was going to have a second variation of the melody where it speeds up but it was already 6 minutes long... anyways thanks for the review!


Hapy music

sometimes its nice just to stick some interesting sounds into a well known chord progression, and just make a nice sounding song. And this does exactly that. Theres some nice mastering here as well, you can hear the extra effort thats gone in. The piano is a nice little touch, gives it more of a happy hardcore vibe.
A little hint, if you want to make a really upbeat soft piano part, add a load of reverb, then put it over a pad (look up Kaechi! Teochi! Yoshi! by Yoshi J and you'll really see what i mean).
Looking at your stuff your very good at setting a good vibe for a song, the only thing i can say to think of is the actual melody, though they are good, i still haven't heard one i thought was special. Not trying to be too critical because mine are no better, aha, just the area i feel you need work on to start turning out some really top of the range songs.
Anyway, i really enjoyed that, glad i had a listen :)
And keep it up! :) haha

For me the kick isn't too bad on this

I think its definately lacking overall at the bottom end, it needs a ass instrument playing in the low range to go with it, oir it will feel a little 'thin'.
The piano is a little startling at first entry, just needs a little polishing though. I think the crash with a new idea fading in is used a little too frequently in the middle of the song. And a nice cemented end would be nice as well, would be nice if you can add a load of chorus(?) onto that last piano chord so you have it repeating and fading (if you get what I'm at).
But yeah, definately polish that piano sound a bit, maybe look into the low range to compliment the drums. And just mix the kick a little more powerful, not too much though, so as not to lose the clarity in the drum parts.
Anyways, if you decide to edit this at all hook me up, if not its a nice little piece, keep working for future projects!


Love the hardhitting mixing and voices. I think this is perfect for a dance. the melody just after one minute mark could be better, but the feel of the song is just perfect for a lively dance. Nicely done.

Sacrafan responds:

Thx =D
You sound like you know music, so i'll check ur page out!

this version loops better!

Much more solid and listenable in my eyes. And the loop is muchh better!
Keep at it!

CryteX responds:

thank you for your comment´(s). ive just found out how to extract it to make a loop^^

fine for a test

Neats some sort of song to break down into. Sounds a bit like an air raid alarm (kind of?) to me. But yeah, the patch is nice, do something constructive with it and see how it turns out ;)

Hikari responds:

lol thanks, the thing in the background is the patch, the guitar sounded cool, becaues i did it my self xD

love the mood and voices

Sets a great mood with some good voice choices and would work fantasticalluy in the background to something. My only probablem would be listening to it on its own it doesnt have enough material to make it a 'must-listen', another melody and thus a lenthening of the songwould vastly improve this in my eyes. Other than that, fantastic, good luck in the future.

MikeBlade responds:

Hey thankz for the review. I will note everything you said and will try better in the future.


It really kicks in after that intro, I can only suggest having a more powerful voice to bring it in, or changing it to something novel, that though it doesn't nessecarily sound nice, will grab the attention of the listener.
Love the upbeat tempo and feel. Keep at this, you have quite the knack for it!

Bunnymajs responds:

well thank you :)
it was a pretty fast putt together song, but when i got the time i'll fix it up a bit :D

Please rate my songs, I'm new to dance music and some crit would be lovely. I'm also rubbish at naming them, so new name suggestions would be great. =)
