Cool drums, even though the samples are quite recognizable.

You made good use of FL slayer, but its really not a very good synth in my opinion. Try using the TR404 or something to make a more interesting synth.

It's clipping alot in the bass, try putting a compressor on it or lowering the volume.

Cool high synth at like 1:00.

You're pretty good at constructing melodies and basslines, now all you need to do is polish your synths and production and you've got some nice work.

Cool Groove!
If you want my opinion I'd say change the 'electro duck' synth to another sound! I hate that sound, this has absolutely nothing to do with your song I just HATE that sound. I have a few versions of it as samples and sounds, and it makes me cringe every time! Its too metallic somehow to be pleasant.
I say change the sound because what you play is very nice indeed, and I really do think it's a cool little groove!
I take it that ZachB is implying this synth to be changed to guitar? You could try some 'guitar' plugin (isn't 'plucked' included in FL) just to see how it sounds?? Just swap over the instruments!

Nice...for a week on FL! Hell yeah!  My opinion would be to bring the synth down just a bit and layer another version of it an octave down to add some depth.  YEA! ITS A FRUITY REVOLUTION!

pretty good fruity loops song. It could use some inputed instruments and such  but i think you did a pretty good song for an industrial electronica

Drums are life less but it works.

As for the Synth Lead (FL SLAYER?). I would change it to a decent sample / sampler on a decent effects chain. It'll sound smoother as a synth and probably fit in alot more. (Keep the delay though - which may be the multitap - but replicate it with stereo delay.)
