sun sequencing - sun_sequencing.it

Review Score: 4/10

Overall Impression (4/10)

Too loud. Too many channels repeating the same thing. Not totally a bad tune though, as it's interesting for the techy kind of sound. I could imagine this slipped into a set at a rave.

Strong points: Samples used are interesting. Basic use of instrument envelopes does help.

Weak points: Too many channels repeating the same samples, and as a result too loud and distorted. Not much variation.

Not necessarily something I would listen to by choice, I could imagine that it would sit well as a breather in a set of other more complex tunes by a DJ performing live somewhere. Not terrible, but not great either, I give it a slightly below average 4 overall.

Jarek - jarek.mod

Review Score: 4/10

Overall Impression (4/10)

Although I did find this tune a bit difficult to listen to, I give it some points because it's not bad, but unfortunately it's not inspiring to come back and listen to again either. Strong points were the drum intro at the end of the first pattern, and the way the bassline worked with the melody and strings. Weak points were the choice of samples, standard tracker tempo which I didn't think worked for this tune, the snare part in the last 2 patterns, and lack of variation in either panning, volume, effects or tempo. One that I would maybe put on again lined up with a bunch of old anonymous Amiga MODs for a nostalgic sound. I think Robbi has some potential as a composer, this work is certainly much better than my earliest efforts, that's for sure.
