Yes, and -
Great job! I like what you're doing here are a few comments if you're interested in hearing from an audio engineer/digital media specialist:
Audio - I like the song but the overall mix seems to need some work. The Bass should almost never be panned and it's a bit much in the left channel. Also, if you're able to EQ the bass I would play around a bit with the upper end as it is masking the kick drum (panning the bass back to 0 may help this). If you were to pan the bass back to 0 you would then be allowed to move the piano to the left channel, allowing the piano to breathe. Right now the piano is covered by the guitar. I've worked on similar pieces working with jazz bands and such.
Vid - I really enjoy the old feeling this video puts off. It almost reminds me of Pink Panther in a way. Anyway, It's hard to tell at times if you're trying to time certain things to the music. I feel like you're trying and I'll say some of it works, but some of it needs work. I would suggest going frame by frame and trying you're best to sync it up...(I know working in After Effects this can be time consuming).
Anyway, take my comments or leave em, that's up to you. I actually really like the direction you're taking this, I love the old Noir's, and can't wait to see your first episode. Good luck!
Alright, this was very entertaining, congrats! I am a recording engineer at Ball State university and just wanted to comment on the audio quality. For the most part it's absolutely superb, filled with exciting harmonies as well as an interesting melody. If I were you, however, I would go over the audio again, especially the drums/bass invovled and make sure they aren't clipping. There are many moments where the audio is distorting due to the audio levels. Anyway, take it or leave it, but without that distortion it would be even better. Great job, hope to see more from you!
....tsk tsk tsk
I am a musician and i really cant get past how bad some of the songs are tonally. I mean come on, if you're going to have the audacity to use such simple chord progressions at least be in tune. Over half the songs I played the singers were at the very bottom of the pitch line, making the song sound out of tune. I'm sorry, i study music and this is unacceptable. The game play is alright, however, I like the system you use.
