Really good for your second flash
You get a 10 from me cause the ppl that gave you bad reviews dont' know what they are talking about. For a second flash, it's good. You're better than me at it. ha ha Just keep it up.
C: heart warming C:
Now I'm glad I don't have epilepsy. Thanks for the lack of flash dude.
I seriously never thought anyone would ever make a serious flash on NG. I have to say, this is if not the best flash vid I've ever, ever watched before. The story was something that is of hope and is true with the world today. Great work man! I know I'm the 2, 676th guy, but that's one more person who is willing to spend 5 minutes of their life time on watching and writing a review. So...I would like to say Thank you.
Good game but
It's a portal ripoff. Just no Portals. but the plot and idea is the same...so no excitement as a story...
1337 and i get nothing after 700. I feel like i wasted my time. Thanks.
I played it with my own music, and I was having the best time. Would you check out my song, Underseas? It's my newest one, and I think it would be good for your next game if you plan to make something similar to this game. Good job.
I think the glitchy main melody (or whatever you want to call it) later in the track is a bit louder than the other noises in the track. Instead of lowering it though I think you could get away with raising everything else a tad to even it out. Other than that it kinda seems out of place, almost as if you forced it within the song to keep it unique. You've got an uplifting feel to the track but then you stray away from it. I'd like to hear a version of this that felt true to its roots instead of the gimmicky songs you throw at the NG crowd to keep them loving you.
For once you might actually get a review instead of "OMG this song is beast" or "AWESOME!" as I think those reviews don't do anything but boost your ego. It's never a bad thing but I'm trying to say how are you going to grow even MORE as an artist (hold your breath, yes I said it) if everyone here is in a F-777 circlejerk. Sorry about the rant but those are my two cents.
I really do hope you get something out of the reviews that do matter and even then, please take my advice/review as suggestions not a "I can do it better" or "OMG you suck, this song sucks."
Make your uplift into new phrases a bit longer (if you can), it seems a bit too short and introduces the new phrase up too soon. As of now it's < 2 bars, try and make it 4 if you can.
Your clap seems a bit weak. Did you layer it? If not, maybe you should look into layering your claps and possibly introducing a compressor to them (nothing heavy but something that adds a bit of a punch to emphasize beats 2 and 4).
Something about your EQ/master seems off. I'm not sure what it is but something definitely seems off. I know that doesn't help you much but it's pretty early as I'm writing this review...
Anyways, keep it up man, have you looked into maybe getting some record signings?
I'm going to try to be nice about this.
This isn't trance, first of all. Where's the quarter note kick drums? The typical perc set for a trance track is kick drum quarter, off-beat open hi hat and a clap on beat 2 and 4. Maybe add some pads to emphasize the chord structure you're conveying on here.
To help your sound I suggest you buy (there's free samples as well) a good sample pack. One that specializes in the style of music you prefer to make. Keep making songs because it's good practice.
I love the effort here but if you really want to strive to become a big-time producer such as Ferry Corsten or Armin Van Buuren you'll have to keep at it, no matter what. Listen to what they make or listen to what other artists you love to listen to and try and mimic what they make. If you can make something close to their songs in terms of actual sound then try your hand at an original. I GUARANTEE you your sound will explode in terms of quality.
Something you won't learn by doing that, however, is actual song-writing skills. This either comes with musical experience or by listening to a TON of trance and somehow picking up what "sounds good" to your ears. Don't make something that is edgy...yet. Establish yourself as an artist before really going out there because getting your roots laid out is one of the most important things.
I hope you actually read this review instead of just seeing the 2 stars and telling me I don't know anything. Listen to some of my songs, I wouldn't be offering this advice if it didn't help me in the past.
Thank you for the review. I was debating with my friend whether this was trance or not (I personally thought it was not due to my exclusion of 4x4 kick). However, to humor him, I put it in this genre. I should have just ignored him. I appreciate all the advice and encouragement; I wish I could receive more reviews like these. I know that even after two years of music programming, I've got a long way to go. So thanks again.
