Simple and catchy. Well done. I think you could probably add a distorted guitar over the top doing some improv (of course I say that about every song :)).
Sound quality is pretty good. The beat is pretty good. The piano sounds nice.
That said, you need to change the beat up every once in a while. I appreciate your improv on the piano, but it needs a little more structure. There should also be some kind of other instrument harmonizing with the melody on the piano.
Song got better around 2 minutes.
That's a first, Thank you for the Critique! I'm working with a weird program, plus i'm not really great music to begin with. Hope you like the next one i pull out!
So, you guys must smoke a lot of weed and eat lots of 'shrooms. I'm sure this would turn any trip into a bad one.
You asked me to review your other songs, so I am. This song is pretty hilarious.
i almost liked it
This could be a really good song with a lot of work.
You need to change the melody because right now it sounds out of tune.
It's also too repetitive.
Otherwise, not bad.
I really wanted to like it
A nice song, but too repetitive for the genres you said it was a part of. The synths are the right instruments, but need to be tweeked. Overall, the instruments just need some tweeking.
The transitions are pretty good.
Try stretching the length of the percussion to 8 bars, and vary it at least every 2 bars.
2:13 change did not make sense to me. I guess it was downtime before the next change?
2:41 is really pretty good. The voice samples there are a little cheesy though.
This reminds me of Mortal Kombat. If I were at a rave, I'm sure I would give this song a higher rating.
The original drumline jumped between a typical breakbeat drumline and an amen break, turns out having 2 different drumlines and jumping between the two sounds more repetitive than one in this song, although I know what you mean (I should get back into my old habits of having 8 different versions of the drumline)
Not sure what you mean by the tweaking of my instruments, is it a pitch issue or just the wrong instruments for the situation? If you can drop me a pm that'd be awesome
Vocals are a recording from Call of Duty 4's "War Pig" mission, in the bog, and the other is Brutus's speech after assassinating Caeser in Shakespear's "Caeser"
As for the MK, probably the "Fatality" voice snippit :P
You like flangers I see
Nice distorted guitar loop, the panning was neat. Was that a little dog barking? Interesting.
The flanger may have overpowered your intent a little. I would back it off just slightly. Let that searing guitar burn through. Maybe even back it up with a harsh synth bass like the "fry" bass on sytrus.
Not much as far as a "composition", but still a great effort, mang.
Yes, wholeheartedly, to everything you said. Can you please review more of our songs? K. Thx. Peas.
Lebal Drocer Inc. 2008.
Your ability to arrange loops into a coherent song is good.
Now let's talk about improvement.
-The slayer needs tweeking because it has been left in its raw, crappy state.
-I agree that the drums are too quiet.
-Many of the more positive comments don't seem to realize that you didn't compose those percussive beats. Those are the samples in their original form without even a little slicing (they are DrillNBass & DL_Taught?)
-The piano intro sounds like that "out of my league" crap
Don't take this personally. I just felt a need to balance the unreasonably high reviews morons were giving you.
Yeah. This is a very raw form of the song because I'm actually in the middle of recording everything. I had to slap some sort of drums on too, as those are very incomplete. This was more for the concept of the song itself, and not the instruments.
BTW, what is "Out Of My League"?
Thanks for the honest review
Your samples were great.
With that said, I don't think you can call this "rap" because there is no "rapping". Maybe "hip hop" is the term you're searching for. Whether rap is crap is irrelevant to scoring this song.
As far as improving this song:
-lose the cheesy clap sounds, improve the percussion quality
-the way you played the samples often sounded more like a skipping record and the effect was displeasing to my ears rather than pleasing. Try to arrange the samples in a more logical and harmonious manner.
thanks, and i was thinking of what you suggested and as far as that, like really, even with some of the new percussion loops as far as the clapping, there was really nothing else that fit in the kind of song that i was going for, although if you could find one for me that would keep the same aspect of the song then please send it to me, but i was in a rut. Because as you know, it could certainly be an r&b song simply by getting a cross-stick sound for the claps. But i really appreciate your input and i will take deep thought into what you said on my next beat.
Good Ambient Creation
I assume your intent was more to make an environment or a mood setting, rather than to make a "song" or "music". To that end, you did well.
As far as submachine sounds, Fruity Loops has some decent noises, although right now I can't remember exactly where to find them within fruity loops.
That must have been a LONG SHIT. This song is sweet. The one downfall, I think, however, is the bassline. It could be a better sounding instrument, and it should not be as repetitive. The bass drum sounded a little too distorted.
The funky guitar was great, so were the synths, nice samples, good percussion.
Could you tell me a little about what you did specifically? I'd like to know more about the bongo samples and the funky guitar.
Yeah it was almost an hour long on the crapper.
And I am not sure what you mean by specifically, do you mean loops and such?
or the tone keys?
