Re: [Genre?... Electronic] Endless Plane - Interstellar

I liked the chord progression but felt it could use a little swing as everything seems pretty square on the beat throughout. Very clangy and metalic. If that's what you're going for you nailed it, but because of the sound palette it felt a little cold to me - it could have been background music in a game on a phone.

Despite crits, overall I enjoyed listening.

Re: [Genre?... Electronic] Endless Plane - Interstellar

I agree with Mr. Steburn..this could perhaps use a little swing to it, but I still like it as is..it's basically an esthetics thing I think..not a deal-breaker, if you know what I mean.

However, there is one thing about this track I didn't really care for at all..and that's the sound of the keys..they seem to be too up front or loud or something..to my ears, anyway. It's like you have the rest of this really nice work half in the back ground and maybe the track would sound a little better if you cut the low end on the keys a little and took the gain/volume down a tad on them..not really sure, but I think it would sound better overall..or it might just be me.

In the end, as always, it's your track and only you know what works and what doesn't. Basically, there's nothing really wrong with this piece..it's all just a matter of taste I guess.

Re: [Genre?... Electronic] Endless Plane - Interstellar

I don't mind the lack of swing actually.
I think it's got a lot of layers kinda working that for it.
But I agree the overall keys / synths are way too up at times (sometimes more than others) and need to find a balance - especially with the percussion that's lost in the wash.

Cool tho.

Re: [Genre?... Electronic] Endless Plane - Interstellar

melodic and crisp sound. I like the arrangement, all elements fit really well and you introduced enough variation to keep it interesting throughout. the downside is that you lose some of the central narrative of the song a bit if you know what I mean
great vibe from 4:08 on, where you get playful on the scale.

nice track alltogether :-)

Yeah, I was kind of going for an old school sound by using a very old VST for the leads. I can see where it might offend some. I some times focus too much on melodic elements and not enough on groove, I guess. I'll keep that in mind for next time. Thanks

Yeah, I had mixed it from a previous version from a few years ago, and it was nice and crispy/clean, but then it felt like it lacked energy and wasn't full enough... So I secretly layered with old mix at about 1/5th the volume (which I had high passed a bit, but could have done more I guess). I may look into the mix later, but first finish the semester of craziness O_O

Thanks for listening!

Sweet Thanks. About the keys and mix, same reply as above. Thanks for the listen I'll check out your stuff after my crazy grad school semester ends. BLAH >.<

Hmm, I'm not certain that I know what you mean, but I'll listen to it later with that in mind. Thanks for the comments and tips!

Re: [Genre?... Electronic] Endless Plane - Interstellar

Hey man
I liked your melody it seems you worked hard on it
I think the track needs some breaks and buildups in it
its just can get boring with that beat that goes almost all the track
And maybe it could be a good idea to try change the rhythm of the kick from time to time in your track

Hey thanks for the listen. I didn't want to make the beat too varied because I didn't want it to compete with the melodic stuff, but I appreciate your input.

Thanks, that's kind of the vibe I was feeling actually! Reminiscing the 90s.

Re: [Genre?... Electronic] Endless Plane - Interstellar

Hm hm.. The beat really doesn't add anything to the mood apart from sluggishness and redundancy.
All the other instruments already provide a strong rhythmic feeling, and the beat doesn't interact with / complement this rhythm in any way, doesn't add any idea, it only doubles what's already there and makes it sluggish.

Apart from that there's no real progression. It's the same thing going on and the same level of tension all the time.
But it's good to take a part out of it and build on that.
