    the last 30 secs get a bit repetitive but i have that under control in the studio... something about the subs dnt feel right to me so any feedback on that or anything more than welcome... i hope you like it

    I've listened to this a few times, the intro is good, not really feeling the drop. Lacks weight, sounds a bit unfinished (the flow) Lot's of good sounds (piano, drums etc) I like it, has a bit of a TV show theme tune vibe happening.

    I agree that the drop could use a bit more power, especially in the bass, lovely intro though!

    Agree with the others, some real nice ideas here, and some lovely sounds, but the drop lacks any real punch, or depth, sounds very weak.

    After listening again, I think the drop doesn't deliver any impact. It just doesn't have any drive behind it. I think it's the bass that's causing the issues. From this end there doesn't seem to be much in the 500hz and below range. Sounds very light and airy if you know what I mean.?

    Hello,
    The melody in this song is very nice. However, you are lacking drastically in bass. You have so much head room/sub room to work out some awesome harmonics for your bass, or possibly you could layer up multiple bass sounds to give a dynamic range of bass textures. Also, one of the piano rolls midi quantization is all the same. So it sounds like I pressed something wrong on my mac. Sometimes a non-precised quantization and note placing is what makes a song sound more natural and human. Hope this helps.
