You got a 6/10 for being unoriginal from a fan of fucking _Madness_ of all things.
The people on this website are retarded.
Nice toon though.
I'll make sure to watch Q&A in the future to see this there, this was great :)
i drew a dick
it was amazing
i gave this a 0 because there were no upgrades or achievements and there were no references to video game IPs or internet memes also when i was playing the first level my computer exploded you should fix that glitch!!!
lots of fun with lots of character, a 3.90 score is baffling to me. if you re-skinned everything to dicks, boobs and video game IPs newgrounds would probably make this number 1. or maybe the score is cause it's kinda short and people aren't satisfied unless they have to spend hours in front of their computer playing a fuckin flash game. or whatever.
anyway newgrounds is gay and this game was bangin
It might have a low score cos everyone gets so many glitches; that seems like the kinda thing that'd turn a 5 vote into a 4.
but yeah it'd definately have at least a 4 if I'd made it all pixelated for no reason, an a 4.3 if I'd made it about sonic the hedgehog
way too much compression/reverb on the piano, probably need to compress before the reverb
piano is too loud throughout actually.
usually you should take all the bass out of everything except the kick and the main bass instrument, and then make it so the kick and bass don't play at the same time - either through sidechaining or only playing the offbeats. like that piano and phased saw lead don't need any lows at all, really.
one thing that kinda helps everything sound grrreat is if you turn off the limiter on the master channel, mix with the instruments all at a lower volume than the kick, then turn it back on. usually. depends on genre and stuff!
Thanks for the feedback man! This is great info. I knew I couldn't get the volumes/sounds right. everything all most feels like it's blending in with each other too much. That's the main reason why I don't like how it turned out lol. I'll definitely take your advice and try to adjust for my next song!
it sounds like you're still learning how to use FL so i'll be gentle (sort of)
the different bass synths that play together are out of key, the crash sample doesn't really fit with the kick/snare basic samples. needs more interesting percussion elements and syncopation (i.e. percussion not just hitting on the beat)
oh, but i like the little lasery sound on the off-beat. maybe you could try to make some more minimal acid/electro style stuff?
I think that's the right amount of cruelty. I really need to read into percussion theory, I'm flying blind on that part.
I got the offbeat idea from reading how a guy does his UK Hardcore. I enjoy playing with offbeats when I'm not overwhelmed.
the first half of this is actually kinda boring and drab (in terms of sound design and development, the melodies are p fresh tho). particularly hating on the drum sounds. if you have access to famitracker then you could've gone to town with DPCM-ing your samples instead of just bitcrushing them.generally when i hear those kinds of percs alongside chippy synths i feel like the artist was like "i want 8-bit drums but i don't really know what 8-bit drums sound like so i guess this will do!"
the second half is off the fucking chain though. literally cannot fault it. maybe more PWM on that lead would be cool, make it more SID-like? i dunno. good stuff!
Thanks a lot for dropping by. I have a lot of respect for your opinions, especially about drums since yours are pretty much always faultless.
I take your point about the authenticity of the drum samples. I was lazy and just tossed some redux on some drumbeat I had lying around. But I kinda wish I didn't have to worry about that stuff, you know? I wish the melodies could just speak for themselves. I've actually been thinking about moving towards more organic sounds for that reason. I'm sure there are a whole bunch of other issues involved with organic sounds too though... sigh.
Anyway, thanks for the review and I'm glad you liked it!
