So, I've just released my first *actual* song on Soundcloud (the other ones were either unfinished or really damn basic, for learning how to fl studio purposes), and it's a Synthwave instrumental with alt metal-style electric guitar sections (played and recorded by me as well).
Basically I wanted to know what do you guys think about it (if the mixing is good, pacing, etc)... And yeah, this is kinda shameless advertisement but at least I'm being honest about it

The song has been created on FL Studio (bought it like in the end of last year and have been watching tons of yt tutorials and screwing around with it since then), and the guitar (a fender strat) recorded on a Focusrite solo 2nd gen if you wanna know the details. I also like Synthwave a lot, and by coincidence it has started growing on me because of someone's (I can't remember the name exactly) recommendation of Dance With The Dead in the "songs you listen" thread.

Well, I don't know anything about music, but it sounded good to me Slightly reminded me of some kind of game music, which is good in my books. The only part that I found to sound a bit odd was at 1:07 with the somewhat isolated "scratch-du-clup" sounding bit but that's about it (yes, a very technical term ).

Thank you for the feedback!

Well, you got it right. Synthwave in general (the genre) sounds very similar to some old video game music.
The only part that I found to sound a bit odd was at 1:07 with the somewhat isolated "scratch-du-clup" sounding bit but that's about it (yes, a very technical term ).
Oh, you mean the guitar power chord at the end?

Hey I just checked out your song, and I think it's great.

I was just hoping for a bit more variation in the song, structure wise. Could use some dynamics and all that.
The song has been created on FL Studio (bought it like in the end of last year and have been watching tons of yt tutorials and screwing around with it since then),
I am also trying my hand at FL Studio and I am working on a melodic death metal song (metalhead alert!!), so I'll publish it once it's done.

Track sounds great, want more stuff to listen from you. Keep it up!

Thanks a lot for the feedback, man!
Yeah, I agree about the lack of variation part. To be honest this song's structure had basically 0 planning put into it (it literally came from me messing with FL's arpeggiator and Serum... And was supposedly going to be a standard chillwave tune, but then boom, my focusrite arrived and I decided to throw a guitar into it - and make it like twice as long as it was originally intended to be).

Oh, a fellow metalhead, I see
Would like to check it out, for sure.
Got a h/alt metal track in the works as well, tho it's still gonna take quite a while to get done... Metal drums have proven to be quite tough to be emulated
