  1. That didn't go very well, no. Am I supposed to change stuff and resub? Or does that only apply when the judging thread clearly says "resub"?
  2. There are some variations between the parts, but yes. Much of it is cut n paste. I'll see how much tweaking is possible in the project's current state.
  3. 3. completed

    I like the atmosphere, the pads, bells and little FX. The drums don't quite fit in though. They sound a bit muffled in comparison to the rest, and probably at least 3db too loud. And maybe even too "simple"; the pads and stuff adds up to a rather complex sound image, while the drums sound like they were put in there as an afterthought, just using a factory hiphop drum beat from a casio keyboard. I would scrap the whole drum track and make a new one with less lows, more high end (some filter resonance perhaps) and a more varied and complex pattern.
  4. Thanks for the comments. I've made some adjustments and will send to to the judges soon.
  5. Great mix and performance. I'd wish for more variation in the drums department though. Bit much of the machine gun kicks right now. Other than that though, top notch!
  6. Thanks, glad to hear it! Yeah, those two parts were even messier a couple of drafts ago so maybe I can blame mix fatigue. Trimming it down further would require killing off another couple of darlings. I'll see if I can bring myself to do it
  7. What I meant was that the drum pattern might fit better with less realistic samples, so it doesn't sound like you're trying to make them sound like natural drums.
  8. 2. ready for review

    Yes, the arpeggio gets repetitive. Maybe if you lower it in the mix a bit after a while? The drums are great if you ask me. Maybe mix it up with some fills and vary the velocity of the kick and it will come to life more. Overall sounds really nice.
  9. Cool! Nice arrangement. Not a huge fan of the drums though, the samples sound good in themselves but the way they play is too synthetic. I would probably have gone in a more drum&bass:y direction. But just replacing the samples with more synthy ones would work nicely.
  10. Neat! The bass gets a bit boring just playing those long notes though. Why not mix it up a bit with some shorter ones? Pianos, mallets and such sound good, but the strings get a bit too loud from time to time. I would try a bit of shuffle/swing to see if the groove improves. It's a wee bit too straightly quantized right now.
  11. Not familiar with synthwave, but this sounds neat! Like a slow Laserdance track. Great arrangement, cool sounds... I like!
  12. Sounds great. Fat chords and chilled out grooves. A bit monotonous mayhaps, but I don't really mind.
  13. Sweet atmosphere. I like the groove, it's like slow drum&bass. Congas sound good. Perhaps the slappy bass is a bit "bassy" for a slap bass. Great work all in all!
  14. Might be worth mentioning that cheap weighted keys are sometimes worse than decent semi-wighted. So preferrably you'll want to try out a few contenders in da flesh.
  15. Specifically, I'm wondering how the flutes sound to you? Those are the only parts of the track with actual recorded instruments.
