Like that opening sound and the rhythmic groove.

Very effective melody that enters at around 15 seconds...tight with the groove! One point here - the melody's sound is too similar to the background sounds for me...I'd want something more contrasting.

I enjoyed the overall vibe of this piece a lot and felt that it's melodic content was very strong.

For me, it could maybe be developed even further in terms of the sound combinations + a little more variety in texture.

Hi ChamMusic,
thanks for your feedback.
I changed now some little things.
I added to the melody sound now another sound.
And I made a little variation on the melody.
I also changed the vocoder sound. And some othe things. :-)
Hope you like it.

Hi ChamMusic,
many thanks for your help. :-)
I just finished the final version of the song.
I made a little change at the end: I deleted the glitch loop and added a TR77 loop.
Here it is:

I really like this song. When the extra arps kick in around 1.00 it gets more interesting. A couple comments. With YMO, especially early, the drums always had extra programmed bits Takahashi would trigger from his pads. I think it would add to my second point. For me at least, it seems that this is needing about 1 or 2 more sections with some variance. It gets a little samey by the end.

Still, good job, neat song.
Even I was offended by what I was going to put here.

Hi Chemik,
thanks for your feedback.
To make more variance I added now at the end some reversed crash cymbals and a whistle sound.
Hope you like it. :-)

I was not very happy with the sound quality of the song "Mr. Sakamoto".
So I started to make it better.
I changed one sound, made some panorama changes and some other things.
I hope that it sounds now much better.
What do you think?
