It’s in the battle 2006-10

Had this set of chords that I keep toying with in FL studio but never put into a song, so tonight I had some free time and finally did it.  Although its a chill kinda song, to appreciate all the instruments (there are 12 used at various points I think, excluding drums) you need a bit of volume in your headset. 

Its a shade under five minutes long, but just sit back, close your eyes, and let the music surround you.  It takes me somewhere different everytime I listen to it, so hopefully it'll do something for you too. 

There are a few minor problems I'm aware of but I won't point them out here.  Also, I'm aware it is simple, but I thought it was better that way...I tried adding a variety of different chord combinations after the pause in the middle but nothing I used fit...feel free to remix it if you have any better ideas.

cool sounds
I closed my eyes and what came to mind was one of those C.S.I  scenes were their in the lab and looking through the scopes or doing some of that kinda stuff.  i don't know just kinda reminded me of that. 

  very cool sound though I like it.

I like the piece but I have an issue with the timing somewhere with the main riff that the song starts off with. Sounds cool until the drums come in but then it kind of gets confusing to my ear. I think it may have to do with the settings for the delay/ echo on the sound not quite fitting with the timing of the cymbals. Perhaps it is just my ears- they're long past their warranty date

Other than that, a fine piece of music. Nice use of many different sounds but overall, perhaps a little repetetive- although, that said, the lack of dynamic does help to preserve the hypnotic feel of the music.

Ktartandude - I had not really thought about the echo effect in it's relation to the cymbals before, but I can kind of see what you mean.  In the final mix the echo effect is louder than it had been in editing where you dont notice it so much, which Im kind of annoyed with seeing as I can't edit it again cos Im using a demo still of FL studio till I have the money to buy the full program. 

Also, I wish I had a midi plug-in keyboard, becuase at the minute Im playing solely on my computer keyboard (rows "zxc..." and "qwert" are the white keys, rows "asdf.." and "1234..." the black ones) which limits the range that I can easily use.  I always seem to run out of keys when I want to kick a riff up a key.  Its doable by using the mouse and manually editing it in, but it never seems to flow as naturallly.  Otherwise I would probably have created many different variations of that bell sound you hear doing the faster riff at points in the song.

Very mellow, very nice. I like the entry of the smaller sounds starting at 1:35. It's almost like soft vocals coming in. This would definitely have a great place in a lounge, or somewhere of the sort. There's also something soothing by the main part, I definitely have to say kudos to you.

starting off slow again then moving into the song. i would rather have a beat starting. something that grabs my attention then move into it. and the phaser in the beginning, it didn't fall into place that well there. i like the abstract type beats. very bjork type if i had to compare it to someone. another very good job.

I considered putting a synth line in, but I really wanted to keep the chilled out vibe to it and I couldn't put a synth in and keep that, but feel free to remix this if you want. 

Altfour - good idea, I've never tried starting with a beat before so be sure to look for that on my next song.

pretty decent...  I like it very much....  Very relaxed....

   As for anything constructive, let me say just this..

              It needs some soft bells, nothing too much, put way back in the mix, just soft, and barely audible...  it adds some ambience in the background.. it will fill it out some, and make a huge difference...

I agree with most here about the synth leads.  You have a foundation for a really interesting new age sound
I will be very interested in what you can do with this.
I noticed that the drums may be off a little but that could be the effect that is causing the delay.
Need some more chords in there to make it work I think     - Mark from GRUNTLED
