Quite pleased with this one. For back story read the comments in the .it . I suppose i was a little unadventurous with the VSTi s (mainly just taking presets and tweaking them a little) but as i say i think it sounds good and that's what matters! Due to my dubious methods it's a little CPU intensive so feel free to listen to the .mp3. :)
Look forward to hearing what you guys have come up with!

i think i failed to stress how much i enjoy the ambience of this one!
one thing i noticed after listening a few times now, the 5th chord lead that comes in at 1:09 seems a bit loud or overbearing to the ambience before and after it. when it comes back in at 1:47, it fits in the music better.

Mmm the ambience of this is really lovely :) Particularly at the start. I agree with Directionless, the bit at 1:09 didn't seem to fit with the ambience outside of it. But I can live with that cos the bit at the start is so nice! One other thing I guess is that the crash cymbal sounds a bit weak.

hey pupa! this is really nice. definitely one of my favourites this round. i disagree entirely with the above comments about the lead starting at 1:09.. i LOVE it! it gives this track so much characteristic depth and beauty. i wish it could go on forever. i'll just have to keep it on repeat for a while! keep up the good work :)

well just so you know, i didn't consider the lead a flaw or anything. :) just pointing out that it was the only volume imbalance i heard. otherwise, i can agree with a statement like dj_lo says; especially since i use imbalance in music for emphasis all the time. if for that purpose, i'd actually make the lead @ 1:09 stand out even more. :D

thanks for the comments. i guess the lead was a little loud... but it just sounded so cool i couldnt resist turning it up. anyways sometimes its nice to split opinion (wouldnt be much point in opinion if every1 agreed!). @ mutilus: i guess the crash was a little weak but i didn't wanna break the ambience at the start with a massive crash sound with a strong attack. but thanks for commenting guys.. it's nice to have some positive feedback for once :P

Weird track :D. But that's a good thing. Gets a little repeative on my ears but just short enough not to bother. Synths on this track sounds good. Nice tune..

I think the 1:09 lead was balanced, and the way you introduced it suddenly, and then took it out, and then brought it back with a different melody first worked quite well. OTOH I think your drums in general are a bit quiet. If that was to keep the ambiance of the first bit, remember you can always start them quiet and turn them up a bit :)

I liked the sudden chords too, though I thought the lead sounded a bit cheezy. :D the arpeggio worked, too. the percussion could use some working on though, but then again, I am a MOAR-SP33D-DRUMZ freak, haha (meaning I'd advise you to crank that mutha up to bpm 999 spd 1 and go BREAK-KOR3, which probably isn't a very good idea).
....sorry, I have trouble calming that urge on my own tracks. anyways, nice pretty track. :)
