this song brings some older artists to mind. i like this style. could you get rid of the clipping? also, some of the changes pop

Thanks,

I just updated it. Its not purfect, but it has a better transition and ending. I can't hear poping anymore, but it might be my headphones.

I like the looped layers in this, very unique sound! This is a very interesting track-enjoyed it!

I like this but I feel like it's a constant build-up and that you never reach the goal. Nice sounds in there :)

it sounds much better, but there's still a little distortion. i know it's somestimes weird to be compared to anyone, put this piece reminds me of various pink floyd and as falls wichita so falls wichita falls. i was trying to imagine how you did this, and then i checked the site under your nick. i thought chordware was your artist name

Thanks Androidlove, I'm glad you liked the song, and to have it compared to PF.

Its probably not a good idea to have my artist name the same as my product name, but I wanted to associate it with the music to give folks more of an idea about it - a midi, chord, and sequencing program that can be midi-routed to an audio program.

To help you imagine how I worked the song out: its not an algorithmic composer - you select each chord from a filtered list(which helps you watch your accidentals), although the voices will often fall into place, given the right settings. So besides editing a note here and there, its a lot of 'Undo/ try another setting' to replace chords. But, in my defense, its not that much trial and error - I did the song in two nights. Same with the rhythm changes: each is derived from the main rhythm, which originally came from 3 switching arpeggiators. So its mainly alot of tools that require alot of patience and faith at first - and years of practice-composing for the end result.

Thanks for your response, and I'm always happy to answer email.
