it's really cheesy. sometimes you're melody and countermelody contradict each other and just sounded weird in general.
drums were lacking I guess. doesn't necessarily have to be compressed to the max but definitely needs to be tightened up.
that's all i have to say. have a look at my chunes if you want!
Why is it cheesy? I'm guessing you perceived it that way because of the synths I used. This is the type of sound I intended to have. I know some people hate this type of sound design but I don't use it often.
I'm not sure how melodies contradicting each other is a problem, and I don't think they contradict each other. I believe countermelodies can be used for contrast, emphasis on a particular note, and/or harmonies. Btw, the lead in the background playing chordal notes is not meant to a countermelody.
I agree that the drums can sound better. I'm not good at using compressors; I should watch a tutorial.
Mixing is kind of off. can't really hear much of your leads through the clutterness.
Also recommend staying away from fl studio's sample packs, its kind of cheesy.
keep at it. have a look at my track if you want!
Thank you for the response! I'm going to check out your track out as a thank you! I'm aware that FL Studio's sample packs are cheesy. I'm sorta on the lookout for a replacement but I can't seem to find as large a variety. If I had loads of money I'd just buy a drum set a record the percussion sounds individually and then sample that. I do have a guiro so I'll probably use that. Thing is, I'm not sure if I have the mic or acoustics to get a good sound. So bottom line is I can't find a suitible replacement that I like so I don't end up getting a better one - which sounds bizarre when it's put like that.
this is really cool
bleep bloop bleep bleep bleep bloop du du du du du duuuuduuuuuu
I'll download it over 100 times if you look at my shitty dubstep
