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...

the feedback: canese, your tune is a pop song, but not as much as the songs from eighties, maybe try to change some sounds/instruments used in the song.or you can make some eq cuts in frequencies. SimaGT, it sounds a bit like a video game , but it really seems like was recorded in eighties. especial...

so in this track i used only one vst synth, even did not have this intention from the start. but after hearing some presets i have said this should be it. this vst is an emulation of an ensoniq sq80. the tools used: SQ8L vst by Siegfried Kullmann -for all instruments in the track; magix music maker ...

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC020 April 2019 - Results in preparation

So you want let's say kic...
