One Hour Compo - Round 652 (OHC652)
atmospherium: This one came together really well. GREAT vocal processing and delivery. The instrumentation and vocals remind me of good industrial music. This is super super solid.
starla: Really liked the harmonies and the autotune effects and it had a good retro vibe despite being really modern.
Suzu: Super synth wave nailed the theme and was really well delivered. Bass and melody sound design super awesome.
Dex for awesome drums and super high energy
TheVideoGamer for the really bizarre, but interesting 3/4 dance song
ethansight for the really pulsating and clean dance track
@Arcana - Primarily sine-waves.
@Misael.K - Yep
@Atmospherium - Usually the most common would be 6 on the floor, where you have this sort of shuffle groove going on.
@Arcana - It's dance music, without the last beat essentially lol.
@Atmospherium - It's basically 1 rhythmic idea, repeated, because i'm coming melodic elements along-side it.
@Arcana - I didn't want to loose the flow. Also i had an hour. But i could re-arrange this in the future.
@Atmospherium - I do like the beats here i will say.
@Arcana - Why thank you!
@Atmospherium - Extended version coming soon lol.
@Dex - The reverb makes a big difference for kicks. It's great.
@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!
TheVideoGamer - The theme was simply Neon Road, and that alone is enough to crank out the 80's nostalgia, however i didn't want to do Synthwave, because it felt cliched to me, for this theme. I did take some notes though, to make a retro influenced track. We are primarily in 3/4, with the beats on the pulse, to make a unusual 3 on the floor kind groove. The rest is filled with rich complex 7th/9th chords, a rapid 8th note bassline, and a varied melody. The second part follows in the same idea, but is a different sequence. The ending is just the same as the first part. All in all, good stuff!
Lyra_183 - I didn't need to research this one, i already know it. Evanescence - Bring Me To Life. Great cover, your voice fits the song beautifully. Your voice might be a bit too close to the microphone, so it does sound distorted, however i enjoyed it. Good job!
DrumJ8 - I dig this, the melody is very nice, and turns the track from a basic experience, into a lively one. That alone was enough for me (And the airhorn lol) Well done!
DarkShadow - WOAAAAH! This is a DarkShadow i can definitely subscribe to. Well done!
cotmm68030 - The more i listen, the more i'm drawn to it. I love the textures, it's got a really great sense of minimalistic development. There are parts of me, that wish the drums were louder, however i also feel i want more ambience, so it varies. Honestly i enjoyed this a lot. Well done!
Ethansight - Definitely Ethansight level harmony. That kick is lovely, you do know your sidechain. The whole thing is just groovy and amazing. I love the groove so much, and the chords are amazing. Awesome work!
DDRKirby(ISQ) (First Entry) - Beautiful chords, this...again is just amazing. Too much talent in OHC. The drums and the melody...omg. Well done!
DDRKirby(ISQ) (Second Entry) - The first one wasn't good enough for you? Or is this just a 30 minute composing challenge? I didn't see the problem with the first one lol, but if you must. I have no clue where your getting your guitar loops from, because they're just incredible. I don't know if this is better than the first, but both are excellent pieces. I seriously don't understand why 2 lol. I usually just post trolls in my alt account. All ramblings aside, incredible work, well done!
Suzumebachi - Ah there we go, somebody had to do it. Sick beats, lovely 80's sounds. The harmony is also amazing, you must have like a database on harmony stored in your memory. You just know which chord goes with which. The melody and everything, just incredible!
Starla - That beat i was not expecting, especially for a chord progression of this Calibre. Beautiful subs, and the vocals just work amazingly well. Another well done composition!
Ashka - I must think critically...i must think critically...no don't be swayed the the gorgeous ambience, think critically....i can't do it, your beautiful ambient pieces are my weakness. The groove....omg...TOO MUCH TALENT I TELL YA!!
Dex - OOF, this is such a rocking composition. Sick melodies! Well done!
Arcana - I dig this backing track a lot! That alone is enough for me, to rank this highly. I actually enjoyed your vocals here a lot, the lessons are paying off. Well done!
NickC - This is a ridiculous hyper sugar rush of an experience. It's very intense (And at times loud), and the chords are confusing. I feel your trying something here, however it doesn't seem to work for me. Good effort though!
Atmospherium - Loving the backing track, your voice is just too good. I am in love with your effects you add to the voices, it's so unique to you. Love this, well done!
Misael.K - Really dig that 80's drum machine aesthetic, i sense a bit of the retro vibes with this track. The chords are lovely, and that arp is also amazingly done. When the drums switch, and the melody comes in, the track really comes to life. Well done!
JH Sounds - It's so nice when you vary things (Especially chord progressions), because then it becomes a really diverse song. I dig this one a lot, well done!
Top 3 - Ashka, Suzumebachi, Ethansight.

After the Drive
an under budget soundtrack for a poorly written film

Suzumebachi: perfect synthwave. Loving everything about this.
DDRKirby(ISQ): two entries is impressive, and I enjoyed them both. Getting chill BT vibes.
