I took the time to review your track. It was really good. :D

If I get a review account, I will add this to the real archives:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Song Name: Elusive Dreams (ckelusive.it)
Artist: Ceekayed

Quick Rating: 7
Good
Semi-Pro

Classification: Ambient/Demo Style/Techno
Musical Rating: Good/Semi-Pro

This track uses a simple looped melody in 5 minutes. However, unlike what you may think at first when you hear this, you really do not mind it. I'll try to explain as accurate as possible.

It starts with some percussions, techno effects and synths/strings. The mood is set with a calm and slightly dreamy theme. The techno effects increases and a pling-plong loop starts which perfectly fits into the theme. It slowly moves on with new old school samples and ends up with a similiar relaxing mood as in the beginning.

The melody is easy to listen to and relaxing. It is perfect for those who love ambient and atmospherical modules.

Technical Rating: Very Good/Semi-Pro

The technical side is very well crafted. The rhythm is very original. Is it 7/4? In that case, the artist has fulfilled something I have newer managed to do despite many trials. =) Lots of Off Set, Tone Portamento and panning effects has been used. The samples seem to wrap up from all sides even as they are rather centered, creating a manual reverb effect. This also means that turning on reverb on your player probably will ruin the panning effects.

Samples are all 8-bit but the artist uses so many effects and echoes that you probably would mistake them for 16-bit until you see it for yourself. Nothing feels strange or dirty. The file size is also small, which is a sign of good tracking. Well done!

To summarize, this is a very good ambient/demo style/techno module. Give it an ear!

Err, thanks. :)

The beat is actually just a wicked 3/4, but it might make the timestamp sound weird. ;)

That's a pretty good review, nicely done eagle

You'll definitly get a review account, just not until the new system is in place (well, maybe i might let you in early on the new system for testing purposes when im happy with security).

:cheers:

Ceekayed: Nice piece...(of music) :P
