Pros: Sparse but effective melody. Clara sounds cool. Unique sounding.

Cons: That "wow synth" gets old fast. Fuzzy sounding reverb / chorus all over the mix.

Good overall. :tu:

thanks for checking it, Markku...its another simple comp, but flowed well, i thought.
most of the ambience was overcooked reverb. a dirty habit ive yet to shake. :oops:

Overall a really cool track. As mentioned above, the melody is pretty solid and the use of the native american influences gives it a lot of character, thanks for sharing :)

hmmm, must be all the old 32bit low-fi crap i use, eh?

or it could be i use some overdrive or tube saturation on some things.
i dont like fuzzy either on the entire track as in chiptune
but on a lead or arp i can handle :wink:
thanks for the input!

i honestly know nothing about native american music, so a genuine question, which bits are inspired from there? are the melodies/scales?

agree about the wow synth but the grit i like :)
the overall mix does sound a little heavy in the lows, but that could be a genre thing, i don't have a lot of experience with electro type stuff.

and i liked the wow synth in the song, i don't think it was over used
and comes in and out stratigically. but i know you can't please everyone when it comes to music.

Yah this has a nice gritty sound to it.

Has some Depeche Mode style sounds to it :tu:
Developers please focus only on 64bit development. Let 32-bit finally die and become a thing of the past.

thanks for the link, im always interested in new (to me) music and ideas :)


and i didn't dislike the mix, like i said, just wasn't sure on the context. if that's what the genre is like, youd sound out of place in a mix if you tried a different way.

as for the wow, if you like it, that's what counts :)

overall i did enjoy the track, although im sure id enjoy it more had i heard it out dancing.

mariachi influenced because of a trumpet sound :!:

thanks, there was no full blown chanting or war drums or crazy tunings
but just a BIT of influence with the singing and even less with the over driven flute. :hihi:
i dont even know what language Clara sings in, or what it means... just sounded
native american to me. the name was even an attempt to spell it in english :lol:

The sound is very good. Balanced frequencies. Beside that the vocal chants are nice. Good work!

Are you using TAL freeware effects? You could consider demoing higher quality 32 bit payware effects.
