Hi Sawtooth,

this remix is really cool stuff. But I think the chorus need some bass, and the acappela at the end shouldn’t have this WalkieTalkie effect, it’s too loud.

But really cool, 5 stars!!! Good work.

Actually that last acapella part at the end was supposed to be the chorus, I think. But I liked that last part more so I decided to use it as the chorus.

The chorus not having any bass was deliberate, because I thought it made it sound more foreboding with just the string sample in there. But that’s just me.

And as for the Walkie Talkie effect, that was actually an amp simulator, because I couldn’t get it heard any other way unless I layered it over and over again…maybe I should have done that.

But thanks for the review all the same. :)

Oh. That would explain it.

Thanks for the review, and sorry if this has caused any trouble or anything somehow.

If you DO reload it I may wanna rework this one.

Thanks again for the review. :D

i agree with k…i can see where you are going with this. the pace of the vocals and tempo of percussion work well and the strings add a nice anticipation.
