Nice atmosphere. I really like how you used the phaser at 0:39 with the saw lead, that was brilliant. The bells/piano also sound great, although it sounds a bit muddy when everything else is playing, but that's very minor.

I think the kick needs to hit harder with more bass though, because I think the track is lacking on the low end. Maybe boost the high end of the snare, even though it already sounds amazing.

I love what you did at 1:17-1:37, but perhaps the transition at 1:37 could be improved somehow. I also think a reverse hat/snare/clap sweep would sound great with the phasing and the snare you currently have.

Good luck finishing this, it sounds great so far! Keep it up.

Thanks for taking the time to write me a thought of review! I agree with a lot of what you've said. It definitely needs to bring the 'wubwub' back. haha


Very nice. It doesn't have that density to it that the pros seem to have, but I'm sure that all of us have the same problem. You are pretty close though!

As has been mentioned before, I think the chiptune instrument would either work out great if you used it for a melody. Of course, it would have to match the wobbles, but that's for you to figure :)

Keep it up.

TBM responds:

Glad you enjoyed it!

Sorry it took 3 days :)

I don't know much about chiptune, but I can say that it's catchy.

I agree with the person below me however, it could use a bit more variation. Perhaps not in terms of melody (it sounds good already), but perhaps with the percussion.

It would be perfect as it is for a menu for a game though (just read author comments), so I wouldn't change anything if that's what you were aiming for.

I'm loving how heavy the wobbles are. I'm not familiar with Ableton's Operator, but if it's anything like Fl Studio's 3xOsc, then I'm very impressed.

If you can make wobbles like that, I bet you could make some sick electro basslines as well.

Keep it up.

DetiousMusic responds:

They're pretty close, though operator has 4 osc. d: Thanks though.

Smash is the right word to describe this.

If I had to pick points to improve, I would change the kick for the drop so that it's clearer, though it is more than perfect for the progressive intro. I would also make the lead sharper and less phat, but that's just me. I would also add some sort of minor delay to the mini arp (it plays at 1:40, 1:52 etc) but again, that is just me.

Intro is flawless.

In all, a good 7:20 spent. Thanks.

Thank you for your time man! feedback is really usefull! :)

Yet another clean track. I can tell the amount of effort you put into that kick, it sounds amazing in the mix, well done.

The break is sweet. The piano's reverb sometimes gets a bit piercing though.

Amazing transition. I would have gone for something heavier but I guess the style was already established in the intro :P. Very well-placed percs as well. However, I thought that the tom/low tom got a bit too repetitive for me, but that's just personal opinion.

The sweep at the end was a bit long for me, but I can't be too fussy now can I :)

Well done, keep it up.

D-Chain responds:

Thank you abbic :)
i can understand your opinion's
and now i see the piano's verb is indeed pretty high to the ears, thanks to you.
the sweep at the end however, ends the song.
i could make it shorter indeed. [which i will probably do]


Cleaaan. Very nice mix. Also loving the reverb snare effect you got going there. I dig the windy sounds, always nice to hear when used properly

D-Chain responds:

thanks you sir abbic :)


Even as a WIP, this is one of the more impressive tracks I have heard here on Newgrounds. So far, it is sounding extremely promising, with a sick bassline and well-placed plucks which go together perfectly.

Some things to work on however. Firstly, as mentioned already, the bass sounds a bit too filtered, so you might want to work on that. The other thing that bothers me slightly is the transition. I'm sure you would have worked on that without me telling you, but just letting you know :)

Other than that, this is pretty badass. Keep up the good work!

P.S - This is spectacular for your first try at house music. I'm sure you can go far if you keep going with it :D/

DJ-Hectic responds:

Wow, thanks do much dude! Really appreciate the kind words, and I'll definitely take the advice to heart. Thanks again!


Very nice style here, love the groove. Amazing synths as well, and percussion is outstanding. The track also feels 'full' throughout the entire track, very well done. Mind providing details on how you produced this and what VSTs you used? Would love to know :).

Astrum responds:

Thank you! I've been using audiotool.com for about 2.5 years now, and i combined my work in that platform with some samples a friend and I made in FL Studio 9.


I can imagine this turning into a sick DnB beat with enough work, but that's just me. Very well organised and well-placed notes. The bass fits pretty well also, interested to see where this could go.

Keep it up!

The-Cockenator responds:

haha ty man :D sorry i answeard so late but ty man :P

I experiment with a wide range of electronic genres (currently experimenting with complextro). I've been making music since November 2009. I use FL Studio 10 (Producer Edition) for all my productions and I currently use 3xOsc and Sytrus as my main VSTs.
