I must agree with Lost OST on this YoungProdigy. You say you're asking for feedback and then when someone posts feedback you often completely disagree with them. Or you don't respond to any of the critical feedback and only respond to the positive points. Based on listening to your pieces over the past several years and offering my own input... you seem to rarely apply any of it. At least based on what I'm hearing from your shared links. Then you go on this rant against Lost OST.
Why ask specifically for feedback in your posts then get upset when someone offers it?
You seem to be taking critical feedback on your piece way too personally. The only way you're gonna get better is by having your work reviewed by others with more experience and/or higher in ability than yours, taking in what they say, seeing how you can apply it while still being YOU and growing. I didn't feel that anything Lost OST said was off the mark.
And to be blunt, yes, you have crappy samples. We all know this and you've acknowledged this yourself. But even with crappy samples, you could be doing A LOT more to produce your music and therefore raise the level of your music. There's very little production on this track. I hear little to no automation on your track. I don't hear much reverb or FX (especially evolving FX) to help your song have more progression. Some of the volume in your tracks drop way down and makes it seem more like a mistake than an intended effect. I could go on for quite a while.
Now, believe it or not, I'm not out to beat you up. But I am going to say that you probably need to take a few steps back from your own work and objectively look at it. See how you can make it better. You state that you want to grow and become a better composer. Well, this is part of the way you do it!
So again, don't ask for feedback then bash that feedback and the person giving it. That just doesn't make much sense.
If you think I'm ranting or upset; you're taking it the wrong way. If I come off as taking it personally or angry; I'm not.
He stated that the "non-stop snare" was a problem. In my previous post, I gave examples of songs played with a real orchestra that use a non-stop snare.
My intent was not to come off as a rant. The whole purpose of that post was to clarify why, I think his critique was "personal taste".
The arrangement of my compositions are based on what I hear in real orchestra recordings. If I hear a song by a real orchestra use the so called "non-stop snare", I'm going to use that in my composition.
To me; the actual composition sounds fine and I don't agree that following most of that feedback will improve it. The only thing I could slightly agree on is the "dissonance" thing.
I already do agree that the samples aren't great. But guess what? Those samples are from Sampletank 3 which I paid $299 for. So until I get some more money; they'll have to do. Money doesn't grow on trees.
Perhaps I just shouldn't reply to feedback I don't agree with. I'll just be accused of going on a rant or not being able to take feedback.
But please, before you assume I'm just ranting, read my entire post.
