    Yeah, I know it doesn't sound like it's going anywhere, I still have to add a 50 second part in the middle.
    And eventually I'll have the lyrics finished so you guys can hear my amazing voice [​IMG]

    It's not bad. It just seemed to stop for no reason at the end, you should have made it softly fade or something [​IMG]

    Not bad, sounds like something you might find in a game menu or a relaxing portion of a game. Seems like you could easily make an ending by adding a short lowish note followed by a long lower note

    Sounds like Animal crossing - could be good or bad depending on your opinion. I kind of like it.

    Don't like the random pauses (they're very very short) where it sounds like you've copied and pasted a part.

    I don't produce this kind of music with FL studio, but you did really great! The mix of everything is OK too, everything is in balance. Maybe a bit more variation in instruments, like give the keys a solo, and later give the keys just a background loop or something, and get a guitar to do a solo.

    And as arctic_flame says, the random pauses really don't fit in. Especially with this kind of music, counting the beats is something you do unaware. If a beat doesn't fit in (like 1, 2, 3, and then a 1 instead of 4) it really hampers.

    I think you have the basics laid down. Don't give up, this could be a great tune.
    I like the effects you do to the sound of the keyboard at around 0:55.

    Yeah, the basics are definitely there.

    It's relaxing, sounds nice. Kind of intrancing - until it cuts off unexpectedly. [​IMG]

    You've definiately got something going, though. Keep us updated.

    Its ok. I commend you for doing something useful with that software. It makes me feel like I'm on hold though, the song seems to be made up of 3 parts that just repeat and lap into themselves.

    I still like it, but I would listen to it maybe once a week, not daily. It'd frustrate the doogens out of me.
