Just watched the video, everything fits so well.
Especially love the surfing part. ^_^

FateModified responds:

Thanks endK! I kind of liked the surfing part myself lol. Appreciate you listening / watching / giving your feedback! :D

Amazingly worked-out motifs and flow.
Love it!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you! Your song is insanely catchy gaaah! Good luck :D

Damn man.
This is my jam.

Progression, especially first two chords reminded me on 'thank u, next' hahaha.
Great song and production, eventhough I feel like I would've put more reverb on the main lead at some points.

Really lovely piece. Love the sound overall, everything's mixed pretty freakin' nice.
If I may nitpick, though:
Would've loved if the kick was a little bit quiter though and HH's were more 'humanized' (you could change velocity on them now and then).
However, drums are really great and they nicely cut through.
Instrumentation's really done right.
Reverse cymbals / cymbals could've also been processed better. I think adding more and/or automating reverb would help to set them up behind in the mix which would be great in orchestral track like this.
Everything else is right on point.
This one's one of my favorites of yours.
Keep it up. :)

Thanks endK for the in-depth review! I agree with you on everything you mentioned. I'll keep all that in mind for my future music for sure. Thanks again man! <3

Neat tune.
Love the build-up in the intro, great synth choices, and lovely sidechain.
Low end's not that great, sub and kick processing could be a lot better, though.
Kick sounds a little too 'thumpy' and could be more louder / cut through the mix.
It's actually alright in the first part of the song but doesn't fit in the drop, imho.
Lovely melody in the outro.
As I said, pretty neat track.
Wonder what it would sound like if it was longer.
Just keep it up and good job. :)

Thank you for your advice! I will definitely consider them in future tracks!

Great piece.
This main 'chorus' melody/motif is amazingly done.
It's so addictive, catchy and epic.
Love it! :>

Ooh, thanks so much for listening! I appreciate the kind feedback.

Much respect <3

Amazing intro!
If I may nitpick -
0:15 - onwards - wish the chords [rhythm] were little wider in stereo field or even more automated in different ways, eventhough the choir is already widely spread.
I even think violin would sound better with more reverb as if it was coming from far away, maybe even raise the freq around 5khz or so.
Stomp at 0:30 was top notch with amazing new lead.
As I more think of it, tribal build-up would really work great in that part. (just a thought at first/second listen)
Lead at 0:45 was ok, but also could've been better processed imho. (guess automating and experimenting reverb/delay/phaser would do the trick).
Loved the ravy part at 1:17, nothin' to say there.
Second chorus was best part of the song, including the solo orchestral parts, as well as ending.
In conclusion automating the fx of leads could benefit the whole texture and movement even more. Also, lovely structure, song's nicely wrapped up and I loved the trance/orchestral combo, think you managed to deliver very well.

Love your style.
Lovely breaks and rhythm in general.
Also I really dig the arrangement. Kinda Waterflame-ish and it pumps me up. :)
On the other hand I agree with Crimson Tears.
All the time I feel like I'm waiting for something - I guess the main part that will hook me and make my jaw drop.
You practically got everything here but I feel that something needs to 'stick out'.
If you were going with the flow as you said, I think you managed to deliver upbeat 'background-ish action-packed song' very nice.
I highly suggest focusing on one motif thus making it catchy, and repeating it and enhancing with all the textures you already have within your song.
Great work nonetheless, you can go only up from here. :)
Especially liked the final part (2:24 - onwards).
Keep it up!

Hyenaedon responds:

Thanks so much! Yeah I think I will focus on getting a really nice "motif" as you said for my next track. Hopefully a more prevalent melody or something like that. Glad you liked it besides that though! =)

Is it me or do I sense Green Hill Zone vibes in here? :D
Great arrangement and composition.
Some synth sounds didn't fit that well to my ear, but it's a great song nonetheless.
Especially loved the solo!
Good work. :)

SourJovis responds:

You are the first to make the connection between Green Hill Zone and this song, but I completely agree.

Like I mentioned I went for a first level type of song. The kind that is catchy so it draws players in so they want to continue playing and which is the song that immediately comes to mind when they think about the game. Green Hill Zone is such a song, but with a pop-music vibe many other game music of that time lack, and which is what gives Sonic a cooler image than say Mario for instance. I bet it also helps this song uses a lot of FM modulation synthesis, just like the Sega Genesis does.

What are the synth sounds you felt didn't fit so well if you could describe them?

Thank you for the feedback!
