Description
My first "real" song, now that I've got a nice hardware to make music. Passing by macjams I thought it would be nice to get advice from anyone who could help me improve my work.
Feel free to criticize! ;)

Thanks
Thanks for listening! Hoping to make it longer though, as 2'30 is a bit short I think...

Boy oh Boy.. Niceeee
Nice work ... I absolutely loved the start of the song ... complex moods .. I am not sure what in that instrument is that kicks in at 0:51 ... sounds like a sax on keyboards .. But it sounds very very interesting .. very Nicee ... you need to introduce some of the Guitar argepios you played in the begginng .. get a bass guitar so add some depth and some thundering drums to add a percussion element .. If I hear closely I hear your bass notes in the bakground.. bring them to the front and you are taking some mean riff ...

Nice work again ... hope you dont mind me giving a lecture ... I just think it is a great composition ... loved it ... kudos again ....
Thanks for sharing ....

Thanks for the feedback!
A great thank for your comment on this song, that may help me to find solutions to make it sound better :)
I can't find what instrument you're talking about at 0:51, maybe you meant 1:36? In that case, it's a synth lead taken from Logic Pro 8 --> Analog Dark Square. I'm still using the factory presets with Logic, tuning may come later when I start to understand every part of that great software ;)
About the bass, there's already one indeed, even if something seems to sound... "not too good", but I still haven't found how make it ok. I'd need a real bass player instead of me playing keyboards maybe?
Same thing about the drums, I couldn't find a good drum track to fit with the song, and I'm really bad at creating ones on keyboard...

Again, thanks for taking time to write your feedback!

Potential...:)
I think this song has great potential ... yes indeed I could hear the bass.. I am lead guitarist not a bassist and didnt have bass guitar either. I got a Ibanez SDGR Bass guitar last year I dont think it was expensive (comparitively) about $200
and it is exactly what I wanted and love it. Maybe you already know this .. But a little sound mastering tip that i read on the internet .. after recording your song copy to CD and play it on a Car Stereo and then on a nice Home Theatre system .. apparently this works .. I use this all the time to adjust the levels of all my recordings .. there are so many times I have noticed instruments drown in the background .. helps me a lot to adjust my track levels ... I hope to see follow the progress of this tracks ... Nice works again ...

Yes!
You're right, I don't think I've done this (listening in various places) with this track, even if I'm used to do it usually, thanks for the advice! ;)

Hi
I can hear you've got talent! Nice track! "Easy" to tell you use Logic with that clear and crisp sound. Guess who's dreaming of Logic now ;)

My only nit is the ending. Some more would be nice! I too look forward to more of this. I'll be sure to fav you as an artist to get email alerts when you post again.

See you around and thanks for commenting on my song.

Merci!
Merci beaucoup pour ton commentaire, ça me donne envie de replonger sérieusement dans Logic, qui offre tant de possibilités ne serait-ce qu'avec les presets fournis d'origine. D'ailleurs la qualité de son est uniquement dû au logiciel lui-même, je n'ai quasiment fait aucun mastering sur le morceau, ni modification d'instruments.

Well done!
The pulsing layers echoes work really well and the bell synth is perfect as rhythmic accent. One thing I found was that the guitar power chord was too strong in the mix and since it isn't backed up by any percussion or an equally powerful element later on I'd consider toning it down a bit. Also, seems like you're going for an electronic genre - I'd cut the drumset in the beginning - introduce elements only if they are important to your soundscape and used more than once. Overall though this sounds great and with a more distinct 'story arch' or buildup you have all the ingredients for a great track. Also you could try experimenting with the tempo, I'd up the tempo by a bpm or two, it'll help with the intensity and overall energy.
See, that's what you get for leaving nice comments on my tracks - an endlessly long response that takes longer to read than listening to the actual music;)

Very constructive!
Thanks for you great comment, exactly what I needed to work back on this track. Of course I like when people say they just like the music without any other comment, but I can't say how grateful I am when great musicians like you, Parichayaka, take time to write constructive remarks.
Your music is particularly inspiring too, and gives me the will to fight against my lazyness and compose again.
