Hey everyone, I'm new here to these forums and since my Rokits finally came in I decided to finish up my song. 

I tried to make it kind of Megaman-esque (sort of fast paced and never slows down), would love to see what you think and see if I can improve in some areas.

Hope you enjoy!

I just listented to it. Sounds pretty good. Sounds like something you would hear on NES or SNES. I like it.

Overall, I like it! There are some notes that feel a bit off in the counter (harmony) parts that I'd suggest taking another look at. And later when the melody is by itself there are some out notes. I'd also consider having the counter parts be different patches that the melody patch. The mix could use more low end. 

Also it feels like most of the channels are center panned, so experiment with panning things around to create a deeper (as in space, not tone) mix. But for a first stab at composing, I'm pretty impressed! Keep it up!

Thanks! I will definitly try some more mixing and see if I can get the panning down right. I will add some low end too :D

So I have updated the song I made to orchestral instead of the synth, wanted to see which was better. More feedback is welcome!
