First off, search forums to find the decent VST's. I know prices are the big problem but take into consideration that downloading free samples will never come close to buying something like EWQL, LASS or SYMPHOBIA. These are big brand names by the way, if you're looking for quality look no further than these.
This piece isn't bad, I'd like to stress that. It's very good in terms of originality but you're not doing it any favours using low quality sounds.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK THOUGH!
I'm a 3D modeler, I got more important (and more expensive) things on my "to buy" list. Plus, the expensive/'professional' VSTs would be wasted on me, as I'm not serious about making music. (and there's the added fact that I can't afford next month's rent)
Thanks for the serious response though.
(PS, I trust the low score is based on more than the quality of the software I have)
Repetitive chords and basic structure.
I would accept, to an extent, having a single chord progression throughout the tune. I would even accept these chords if they were played in variations. But the chord progression you've used for the entire song has been done to death!
I wouldn't expect you to take much offence to this but please bear it in mind; this is the INFAMOUS chord progression that's been used in numerous songs. Do something new.
this came to me while playing the piano last night
i was never taught how to play the piano i just play it
i wanted to show what i did with my hands not with a mouse
im going to return to this in a few days and i will change a lot of it
also not trying to be rude but sir constricting the creativity behind a song is a horrible idea if you think that the key is used everywhere then you are wildly mistaken half the music you hear these days doesnt even have a key signature
what you are experiencing is a phenomenon where you hear one thing and because you heard it or noticed something in common between two things you now are subconsiously looking for it in everything
to try to get rid of this you should try meditation or hypnosis it is a serious problem and it can destroy your life if you dont know how to control it
once you have rid yourself of the problem try looking at everything with an open mind from then on to keep it from happening
there are way more songs that are not in this key then those that are mainly because there are at least 30 simple key signatures and loads of complicated key signatures
im sure there are many common key signatures especially among beginners but there is no way in hell im gona change the signature that my piece is in because its more popular
yes it is repetitive and yes it is basic but once again understand i was never taught piano this is a recreation of what i played with my hands
also once again not trying to be rude but seriously look into it your having mental issues or you are trolling either way get some help
Very well arranged
You've done well with this piece, it's very sim-esque. I challenge you to do something completely different next time.
Here are some things I picked up on. There's not much reverb, if any. Try to add some as it tends to spruce up an otherwise dry sounding sound. Also your orchestra sounds robotic, there's no differences in velocity or pace. Do yourself a favour and buy a half decent midi keyboard or record live. The difference is astounding believe me.
this is FUCKIN AWESOME!
Some people are over critical.
This ain't a bad track but some people *stares at guy below* are just dicks.
Keep going with this it's good.
im still getting used to music programs, so ive been practicing alot lol
But it's not even a song... Someone could have some of these notes in their song and it would still be original. This is terrible, and a waste of space.
Make an actuall song, and don't tell me you can't cause fl studio has drums and guitars and bases so go for it.
Soso arrangement, use mastering
REVERB. A very nice thing to use and will up the quality of your work 100%. Also if you're using Vienna try using the keyswitch patches to add some realism.
Other than that It's a reasonable piece.
If you're used to Vienna you should be able to tell that there IS reverb slapped on every instrument.
Not sure what you mean by "use mastering". There's a multi-band compressor and a limiter on the masterbus (well, the file was exported then the VST's were slapped on afterwards in a separate file). I'm always trying to be as subtle as possible with the compression, as it'll fuck up the dynamics othervice. This tune isn't a good example of awesome dynamics, but I didn't spend all that much time on it either (just trying to get the hang of Vienna).
I haven't gotten around to try all features in the sample-player yet, but I'll definitley keep using the keyswitch-patches in mind. I'll probably be better of with another MIDI-keyboard if I wanna use that though, as I've only 25 keys on my oxygen 8.
Thanks for the review!
Piano sounds improvised, if it is good job. There's a softness to it that makes it sound almost soothing at parts.
Yes, most of my songs are improv.
The strings in the background aren't very good quality. And to be honest the whole arrangement sounds very flat. But its a fine melody all the same.
Nice, melodic piece
No harm in not having a main melody to follow, especially when you're improvising. I like the piano, what is the make?
it's a digital piano, but it's sampled from a steinway. I played on a roland FP-7. The piano patch is from reason piano's.
thanks for the review :)
