Quote from: "Sam_Zen"Maybe a bit a pity that the strings behind the lead follow the same notes, instead of some counterpart sometimes. A matter of taste of course.
Quote from: "Jojo"Do you happen to use the Tunefish2 softsynth? This tune sounds quite like Payne's music which uses Tunefish2.
Quote from: "Jojo"Nice work
Quote from: "Harbinger"Notes as i'm listening:Unfortunately i played this back-to-back with Left Unsatisfied and thought i was listening to the same song. The engineering and levels are okay for this genre, but again, from one composer to another, your songs have a TENDENCY to sound like they're lazy, like they don't want us to get up and move. May i suggest with humility that in future projects, you use a little more syncopation and more classical chord progressions -- UNLESS you want to add lyrics, in which case a simply structured song gives the floor to the vocals.I love the change of drumsets halfway thru the song (a favorite technique of my own drummer when she's programming the drum track), but it's not enough to keep the song from sounding...uhm,..."fatigued." Be daring! Jump out of your comfortable musical skin and experiment with refrains and bridges, I can hear the potential that you have for it, and your engineering skills keeps the music "sane", but perhaps you need more confidance and bravado. Even with this genre, there's nothing wrong with experimentation of rhythmic and melodic structure to keep the listener from falling asleep!
Quote from: "TheEagle"No. Until now I neither heard about a VSTi called Tunefish nor about Payne's music...:oops:I will "google" for it....
Quote from: "TheEagle"I listened to your "Panorama" and I have to say: nice drums, base and fx works. But what about the melody? Personally I try to set a focus on the melody in my songs (let's forget my "Left Unsatisfied". This one was only an experiment..) and I think about some lyrics that may fit.The melody in your "Panorama" seems to consist of only three or four notes that are played up and down with some variations in the backgrund (fx, percs). And sometimes the same melody is played by (very nice sounding) strings and guitars. But that's not enough (for sombody like me who loves complex melodies) to say: "that song is interesting"
Quote from: "TheEagle"I REALLY don't mean to offend you, but I think we understand music in a different way...a matter of taste, you know.
Quote from: "Harbinger"Usually we can get something constructive or helpful from like-minded colleagues. That's all i wanted to do for you.
Quote from: "Harbinger"I'm not interested in your composer's ear, but your LISTENER's ear. Just a regular someone who listens to music and doesn't analyze it for its technique, but rather what it imparts -- what does it make you feel, what mood does it further, what vision does it give you, things like that. You and i have many years of composition experience difference, but you still have ears, and in that respect we're equal.
Quote from: "Harbinger"Plus you expect an honest appraisal from anyone who listens (if you ask), and we expect one from you for our music too. :wink:
Quote from: "Jojo"By the way, how about released the module file?
