Rated 5 / 5 stars

Dang, well played :)
Though you said you used EZKeys
Did you play this on a midi keyboard connected to the Vst? I would like to know what midi piano you have if you did this :3

Good job!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I use an M-Audio Keystation 88es as my midi keyboard... Not the best... missing quite a few features you'll find on the more expensive stuff. But I got it because it's a full 88 key keyboard, and it was only like $300. My only real complaint about it is that the velocity triggers are kind of shitty.

One day I hope to have something with aftertouch and weighted keys... but those things are freaking expensive as hell.

Was getting confused on the key signature at the beginning haha But it turned out to be 4/4... I think lol
oh wait I think it changes at 1:20.... O:
Well anyways xD I like it! The addition of the orchestral stuff really adds to the piece, awesome! Just a question, what Vst did you use for the strings?

oh and dat tempo doe.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah... the beginning bit is timed kind of funny... but that's what I heard in my head, so that's what I did.

Pretty close to all orchestral stuff you hear in my submissions comes from Miroslav Philharmonik.

Glad you liked it.

Wow man, Gumi sounds great here, the words are nice and the piano gives the song a nice warm atmosphere :D and man, I never realized how good the english voice banks were!
I only have japanese ones >_< And trust me, trying to use japanese vocaloids to speak clear english is VERY hard. Oh well, time to start saving money.

And English Miku needs to hurry up, xD Can't wait for her to be released!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I know, right?

I've signed up for the newsletter for English Miku, can't wait for her to finally release.

Wow, this is really nice

The simplicity of the song is at a right amount from the chords and accents of the bass and the steady beat of the drums that move the piece along.

I really like the chords you used by the way :3

I don't really know much about drum set reverb, but I think there could be just a little bit more on the kit. I dunno, maybe it's just me lol
By the way, the drum samples are really good!

Overall, your bass technique is awesome! The overall composition is simple and complete for what it is :D
Next time, maybe try to vary the chords a little and add more instruments and build off of what you have here to extend the loop into a song. I would love to hear that :D

Very nice :D WUBWUBWUB

I liked the dubstep wobs very much\
I like how the Subs were used in this also, gives the song some nice vibes combined with the piano

The drums were nothing special, but I do like the snare and the panned hihats and cymbals

The choirs in the background are pretty nice for an angelic effect vs the evil wubs lol

But pertaining to the ending, it needs some work, unless you were going for a loop thing...
Otherwise, filtering the wubs out slowly accompanied by some light piano parts from the beginning melody and maybe some strings with the choirs in the background ending on a light note would be nice...


you could go for a hard ending and extend the wub wub wub starting at 2:20 with a different pattern of wubs with a more faster and harder melody with intensified drums.
As for intense drums, I always thought of imitating a metal type drum set using the sample VEC1 BD ReverbFX 02 and taking out the kick and maybe adding a Transient shapers to make the sample to appear to become more of a hit of an electronic crash symbol
I would then use that crash hit on each beat and add some double kick drum patterns and some epic snare hit's you've already mastered down :D

and then maybe add an epic lead synth in the upper frequencies, specifically the synth you used in you song n/362352 (Indoctrinated) with an ending melody to accompany the wubs :P lol

well, that's the way I would to it lol


In all, this song reminds me of a dubstep version of Indoctrinated with piano - the lead + intensified subs :)

Fav once again


Once a great producer
Always a great producer!


also, I wouldn't mind if you checked my track Oblivious Dream, it was kinda expirimental for me with the Wubs and a melody accompanied with it :o

:D Nice!

Love the tone!
The timpani makes a cool addition to the song, and the tech-stuff in the background help go with the theme.

I like the melody too, it also goes well with the
Cool chord structure also, great for a menu song :D

Makes great remixes too ;)

All I'm sayin' is that you need more EXPOSURE

If you had a lot of it, you'd be very popular :)


At the beginning of the song I thought it would another generic Newgrounds Song... Until the cutting vocals came in, and it sounded great!

I love the way you use vocals throughout the whole piece
It works out very well.
Also, I luv the way there are little gaps between the bass tone and some vocals giving that extra epic BAM in the song

Now for the drop
You remind me of skrillex but less repetitive and more BEAST MODE

The Dubstep synth was very well made too
Please PM about how you made the synth :) I would love to know!

But I think you should develop a better ending

I just got hit with minus points of how I didn't end a song very well
he said "It just stops. No transition at all, just stops like a knife sliced through it."

So, maybe add a filter to the Dubstep synth then fade to the main melody but played on the piano on the upper end


Now for mastering/mixing (whatever they call it nowadays)

On some parts I hear some minor distorting

Try to watch your levels, make sure they don't peak, like the high synth in the beginning. I think I heard it clip a little.

But in all, everything could be heard fine :)



Keep doing what your doing man!
Cause you do it GOOD

:), Lovin that lead!

Great work!

The lead synth is the best part I love this song :)

I love how it pierces through the other synths to bring out the melody

Well, I'm not sure if pierce is a good word to describe it, lol
I also like the drum work here

It sorta gives the listening a sense of the time signature changing but it doesn't really change
It stays in 3/4 timing all the way through, well, I think it's 3/4.

I really like the Synth Swells
It really gives Atmosphere the Piece in a whole
The complexity of the melody is great :)
Gives a nice Madness Feel to it IMO

and like Mr. Jazzman said, the ending needs work
Maybe add an "Exotic" ending like in Theory of Everything lol
How bout adding in the good old piano :D

and already added you as a favorite artist :-D

Great job Overall
Good luck with the Contest Nate :)

Very Nice work!

It's very good so far!
I like the little voice insert you had there during all the madness!

Very glitchy!

Just a suggestion
Maybe try to make the notes a little more clear
Like maybe mix the instrument for a clearer sound
or... I dunna how you do it lol
The whole song is very busy and SICK indeed

Good Luck!

I hear the hip-hop sense in it! Nice Drum samples

Interesting Dubstep synth, I lke it!

I also like how the piano continues on every beat.
The overall atmosphere is pretty chill, like this kind of style you have her :D
It gets a little repetitive, but its still great!

This is really different from usual dubstep, I like it

A Pretty solid piece overall

I like the chords you used! Sounds great!

Review my latest song if you want!

the reason why its so repetitive is that because my friend is gonna rap and im gonna sing over it so it needs structure . thanks for the review though glad you liked it!
