hi all,
i made a new track. yes i know, it sounds in some moments a bit similar to aphex twins stuff.
i hope it has still enough independence :hihi:

if someone recognizes mistakes in the mix, please let me know. it is more complex than normally, way too many channels for my taste.
have a nice day.

Hi tomtom1,
This track definitely has soul, and I am digging it.
The beat is so jolly, and the melody is very nice to the ear.
Lovely mix, mistakes and all. I do not recognize ant mistake at all.

A joyful electronic track. Nice structure and arpeggios.
Pleasant slow melody lines.
Sounds good

Very nicely composed - with tension and relaxation, good transitions,
mixed with a lot of space, backed by a strong, driving rhythm. It's a
lot of fun listening to this track! :wink:

I really like how the song progresses and gets a little spaz-y toward the end. The sound choices and mix is really good. The only section that sounded a little off was the section that starts at 0:40. The lead almost sounds a little offbeat but may be due to the attack. Still, really nice work.

Thanks for listening. Do you really mean 0:40? or is it 0:50? When i mix my tracksi listened so often to them... sometimes i don't recognize mistakes after that long time.

tomtom1,
Thank you for the reviews! Now your song: it's starting very nicely. U.S. president Joe Biden is famous for saying, "Cornpop was a bad dude", but I digress. Get Dave Gahan to sing on it, and you have a hit song! Even without vocals, it all sounds really good! :). See, your song has noise effects, not unlike car sounds! ;)

I'm not going to talk politics here or else it's bound to get ugly, but here is what I was talking about:

It seemed like a song in two halves. I really liked the energy and the dynamics in the first 2:15 or so. The melodic variation in this section was great, too. I thought the last two minutes were pleasant to listen to, but had a little less energy than the first half. Maybe you could have added an adapted reprise of the section from 1:29 to 2:16 at 3:21 and then continued from the original 3:21 to the end. This is only my personal feeling and it should be taken with a very large pinch of salt :) These changes would take the track length over 5 minutes, which might not be to your liking.

The mix was great.

Good work :)

Nice tune, I would echo that it seems like two different songs in a way but both are enjoyable and it works👍

Well, yes does sound like two different songs, nothing wrong with that..only thing about the mix to me is the snare sounds just a tad bit low. Good tune(s) though, enjoyed!

The opening beat has a nice eighties vibe. Lots of variation to keep the interest, and I really liked your sound choices. Well done!

:lol:

i had to google who Dave Gahan is ... :dog:

btw. the track is called cornpops because i switched the syllabes of popcorn. i hope that cornpops doens' have any further bad meaning ... :oops:

thanks for listening!
