You need to move away from the descant sound a bit. I love your composition, leads, instrumentation etc. So for next time, try a bit more powerful sound, even tho this is very beautiful aswell. The middle-easy part is gorgeous. Oh and hai Mystra! :)

Ethnic vibes. Interesting. The percussion sounds in the beginning should be more up-front and clear. Melody manages to get boring before the main part begins. The main part is good. Chord progression could have more variation. This could have been very good with a few changes.

Aargh, I bet this is a remix. I just can't pinpoint the orignal tune in my head right now. Still a nice tune and instruments. However the ancient instrument in the beginning and the end sound a bit out of place compared to the rest of the "sound" of the tune. The planflute works better though.

Fantastic guitar work. Overall, the song is great, but I found the light percussion at the start a bit strange.
4
by yzi
Guitar song. Good song structure, lots of good things. The lead guitar is less bright and up-front than the backing instruments, why? I would reconsider reordering the stuff on the sound stage. The drums seem to be more amateurish sounding than the other things, what comes to sound quality and "hifi".

Very cute song! My favourite of the compo! Mix could be a bit tighter. I think the snare might be too loud. Reminds me of Joule & ko0x styles. Melodies are perfect in my ears. Bass progression is perfect.

by Spiral
Best chiptuna!
5
by yzi
Very good chip tune, nice melody, nice chord progression! Almost perfect. Main melody should be more up front, and not in the background drowned in ambience just like the rest accompanying instruments. Based on how this is mixed, the drums seem to be the main lead instrument.

I was gonna give this song a '10' for the songs perfect sound but then the melody instrument started playing and i regret that i can only give it a '5'. My favourite tune in the compo! But i really wish the melody instrument was a bit less "bösigt" (translated to: something that is not very 'clean/clear').

Instruments and the ambient feeling is what saves this tune. But the melody lacks any logic, harmony or idea to my ears... If you come up with a decent ambient melody, you could apply this instruments and end up with a quite good tune I believe.

Love the original song to death. This is too true to the original song. As it's not an original song, I'm going to have to rate it lower. You did really well to replicate the original song.

Sorry if you've put a lot of effort into this remix, but it doesn't really compete fairly against all the original compositions. I'll give it more than one star on Necta though.

My entry, original by DRAX. This was made from scratch using a C64 tracker. Started just for fun, recreating certain sounds from this fine composition and at some point it turned into a remake. I put in a lot of effort trying to get the instruments as 'true' as possible. If you listen to it, the original's sound is still very different, though, softer, more evenly flowing and enigmatic. After rebuilding the song more or less I began adding some changes, however I had little time to try and blend them in organically. In some places they heckle the original melody, which many of you love aswell, more than adding, which tends to happen anyway, when trying to change a song like "Caught in the Middle". It's just so well-rounded, already.

by yzi
Too busy and unclear arrangement. Lots of melody-like things going on at the same time, fighting for attention. Drums are somewhere in the back. Too little variation and many things playing all the time, making the whole thing sound very repetitive. If your arrangement is already messy and chaotic, it doesn't get better by adding even MORE stuff, and more and more and more and more. Try to decide what you want to say and stick to that.

Messy stuff. Funny at times. Too much stuff (everything?) panned dead center, sitting on top of each other. Composer can't decide is this in major or minor?? Some instruments are playing major at the same time as others are play minor chords/scales. If that was done on purpose, it's just ugly.
