# Garden ways by Sansero

Amazing interpretation, and a cute 9bit sound, I could totally imagine such a piece in various retro games! The gentle delays and reverb really add a lot to the otherwise rather dry chip sounds. Well done!

# The Beauty Estate by TheVideoGamer

Way to go with piano only! I think that some of the chords could use a bit more dissonance, so that it can later be resolved. Not sure if you added humanization, but my personal preference would be to add some for a more natural feel.

Great samples and envelopes. I really enjoyed the depth of your mix, getting lost inside. Great job to push some elements back, move others "in your face". I only had my laptop monitors tonight, but it felt like a great mix to me either way :)

# The Garden Portal by Misael.K

Nice arrangement, and you added lyrics, too. From what I read, you also did it in a really short time, congrats to your result!

# The sun, butterflys and sky by Lyra_183

Your vibratos are getting better and better, well done! Your pitch-control could probably use a bit more practice, but you're not hiding behind autotune, which is great in itself! (I love your cat adding percussion, btw^^)

Another awesome week as always!

TheVideoGamer - Probably the Shortest description ever lol, because it was literally just a 3 minute piano piece. Took a while going through various Piano VST's to find the one i like. In the end, i went with my normal default one lol, the one i always use. I don't know, i'm starting to get a little wary of this when using it for piano pieces. This is why i don't usually make this sort of thing, because i don't have a good sounding one at the moment, to make it authentic. Turns out i had a lot more to say than i thought lol, Oh well. Glad you liked it!

cotmm68030 - One of your finest entries to date. Beautiful chords, soft soothing ambience, and very tasteful use of distortion, makes it super warm. This is the kind of thing i can listen to, for 10 minutes, but alas rules are rules. Awesome work!

Lyra_183 - Nice of you to drop by! CotMM is right lol, your desk makes a lot of noise, i can hear it as you sing. Good job though!

Misael.K - Kind of works as a YouTube intro or something. Think PewDiePie's Meme Review lol. Needs to be longer to sell it as a song, but it was very nice. Good job!

Vaiaphraim - You make such beautiful melodies, i always seem to compliment you on that haha, because it's true. Singable and not too overbearing. It's also a signature element to the song, rather than a loose line. The rest is also lovely, including your Barbara's drums lol. Well done!

Sansero - Very chilly and icy, works more like a winter theme lol, but it still sounds very nice, great chords. That snare is one of a kind, very unique and really lovely sound. I like how it flows too, for it's got that nice development, for something quite simple. Well done!

Top 3 - cotmm68030, Vaiaphraim, Sansero.

Awesome - cotmm68030, Vaiaphraim, Sansero.

cotmm68030: while I expected a happier sound from this theme, this interpretation rules. Very ethereal and dreamy, while somehow nostalgic.

Sansero: solid work, cute sounds with a tad of magic.

TheVideoGamer: lovely reverby piano.
