Hello! I'm new to production and would love some feedback on this track! I aimed for a sad ambience with this composition I wrote with a friend. I hope you enjoy!

My Feedback

Music - 8
Instruments - 7.5
Performance - 8
Mix - 7

Overall - 7.625

Comments: Mix a tad on the harsh side. Could use a touch of EQ. Melody nice. A little more variation would help. Noise running throughout is a bit annoying but not terribly so. What's the source of the vocals?

I liked it.

I thought the rain effect could be a little cleaner as it almost sounds like white noise.

Are there actual lyrics or just pretend ones. Actual lyrics, if they were strong ones, would give it another dimension.

Nice, like I'm standing in front of rainy window, music is going from my speakers in the background and her voice in my head, love it! :love:
This entire forum is wading through predictions, opinions, barely formed thoughts, drama, and whining. If you don't enjoy that, why are you here? :D ShawnG

The piano sounds awesome and reflects the mood very well. The rain didn't bother me, on the contrary. It added much to the scene. However, the drums and voice sounded a bit narrow. I get the idea, but it was a bit overdone in my opinion. I think the drums could have some more emotional response. The hi-hat and bass drum sounded somewhat 'unprocessed', the snare is pinching. The whole set appeared 'flat' (not that it should be more fat or powerful or anything). It has that one velocity or one sample only effect. I noticed that in some other songs of yours too. This is just my personal opinion though.
For the voice its fine. Sounds like its spoken from the other side, or a fading memory that always comes out when it rains. The performance touches different emotions, and smoothly alternates between sadness, gentle depression, melancholy, kindness, regret, pain hidden behind the understanding words.
The bass is subtle, smooth, simple and fits in absolutely perfect.
Title, music and lyrics are matching very well.

Overall, great work!
