    @ 1:30 something is detuned. If it was intended, I personally don't like it. Sound wise, nice open space but pretty drone for me. Depressing hehe. But, from the title, that sounds like the "sound" you are going for.

    keep up the good work. Like the effect on your snare. What DAW are you using?

    So, what is it you are after here? You made no mention as to what you are actually looking for.

    Are you looking for comments of a musical/compositional nature? Or, are you looking for help or critiques on engineering or production? Were you looking for a collaborator?
    Or... were you just "flexing your muscles" and showing us what you can do with a synth, a samples library and a sequencing program? ;)

    Honestly, I didn't listen to the entire piece; it's so repetitive and "drone-like" that I lost interest after about a minute... although, I would have listened all the way through if you had mentioned what type of critique you were looking for.

    From what I did hear, it sounds pretty much on par with every other synth/midi-based - music bed piece that I've heard out there for the last 20 years or so.

    From an engineering standpoint, there's not much you can do to screw it up. Record your midi tracks and assign them to whatever sounds or samples that float your boat, pan and level to taste.

    What I can tell you that may be of some help, is that for the most part, this site is made up largely of musicians, composers and engineers who work in a more organic realm - using real instruments (and microphones), as well as those that use synth and samples in conjunction with real instrumentation - as opposed to a piece that is a 100% "In The Box" production, and made up entirely of synth-driven tracks.

    While you are certainly more than welcome to post any songs you have, you probably won't get the same level of interest and response with this type of sequenced "synthy" material, as you would if you were actually mic'ing up instruments and tracking real performances. You may also want to consider placing this on a site that is more centered around this style.

    Although either way, whether you are posting here or on one of those other sites, I would suggest that you tell the listener just what it is that you want them to listen for and comment on, and, for what reason...
    as opposed to just simply posting a link, with no description, purpose or request.

    Thank you guys! ;)
    @ audiokid: I use Ableton Live 8. I think you are right, the "out of tune" was not intended.
    @ DonnyThompson: I would like to get critics, tips, suggestions, anything. Thank you for yours!
