So, if this month was about chill out theme i rated tracks more as if they fit to it, not just the melody and fx processing. But first some feedback: VCA-089, to me the arpeggio lead is too repetitive, maybe some changes to it or some pause in it should do the thing. To me it sounds more like an ost...

So this time a chill-out theme. As the title says it was inspired by night time. Maybe a night in summertime. Also the song was finished at night, so it speaks about. Anyway here are the plugins used for production: synapse audio dune; image-line poizone; magix independence as vsti and fx plugin; ma...

The feedback: SirCool, the bass sound that starts at 0:03 seems a bit quicker than other instruments, try maybe to slow down it tempo a bit to match other instruments. As a whole, it sounds like a experimentation and a bit of dubstep music. Maybe some changes in arrangement will do the thing. becsei...

so for this entry i resampled some of these samples first to small pieces or waveforms i should say.then i used another sampler to shape the sounds and create instruments. Some instruments are made of layered sounds some of them not.the vocals are somehow mixed in terms on words order from Leonard B...

the feedback: gruskada, your song gives a feeling of a melancholy or a loss and regretting about it. it is sure a rock tune, but i think it will sound good too with some vocals. not sure if it has a calming wave, but i hear it like maintains a feeling for long. Olli H, you song sounds a bit funny li...

So i made this entry about these periods of time when we struggle to pass something that leaves deep marks. Maybe the song is not as calm as i wanted from the start.I had begin from an ambient theme and ended in a more housy rhythm. But i hope someone will get the message i wanted to share. the soft...

So this month i expected to listen some progressive tracks, but it sounded too me like it was just house tracks and an electro vibe and some progressive melodies.i don't say that my song is very progressive even i tried to make it so. but maybe some people just saw first sun house from ,,Sun-filled ...

the feedback: Mozex, maybe your melody is interesting but, i don't see your creativity here, as you can change another instrument playing this melody. maybe you are new to songwriting but,this is basically the same piano from google's doodle, playing all the song. so i can tell what i did with piano...

so for this contest i drew some notes in google's doodle. the melody i obtained from it, i used for some instruments as the midi with all notes. for some instruments i deleted few notes and left some of them. this is not a usual stuff i do. because i don't use a midi generator at all. i play some no...
