"Full Multitracks"

 

I don't know, looks like single track audio with a bunch of silent tracks...

 

Also, the song id is a bit weird, as it is non-numerical.  How did you compile this?

oh my god oh my god oh my god. You beat me to it! This was the top Killers song I ever wanted to get charted. Awesome, dude.

 

A few quick notes, just having watched the preview video!

 

There are a few issues with the vocals. In fact, the first lyric of the song is missing. "I'm on the corner of main street." You could probably get away with making it a talkie.

 

Some notes are visibly wrong. Like "You say you wanna move on"... that note is audibly low, but you've got it at the same place say is right after it.

 

Those unpitched falsettos should be pitched."Before you juh ump" would probably suffice, lolz

 

You know what? I had planned on doing this song with Fat Ha1p3rt and RealCheese in December, so I have no problem donating my time to improving this custom. Feel free to drop this Reaper file in my inbox and I'll polish the vocals to perfection for you! Including adding the harmonies.

 

Beyond that, bass part looks pretty nice. Around 2:30 in the video might be questionable. And again around 2:40. And 3:25. And 4:05. And the ending. I have no input on the guitar/drums parts, so hopefully others can weigh in!

 

I hope you take this criticism the right way. I'm very pleased you've worked on this song and released it. I just want to make it better :D

 

P.S. I feel like I could even whip up a pro keys chart for this, since it's basically all sustains...

First, congrats on getting through this sought after song; I know how difficult it can be to chart. With that said, most instruments need work.

Drums: They are oversimplified. At the very beginning, there is no snare, yet, they are present along with the bass. You can hear the snare actually kick in at 1:14. Also,  missing notes in the drums section at 1:41, 2:39, there are rolls that are absent. Missing a lot of toms at 2:53 - 2:55. There are some wrong notes in there as well like some wrongly assigned open hi hats that are closed hi hats (1:34, 2:33). You also have rides attached to crashes (1:27, 1:49). Also sound likes there are double kicks missing in a lot of places; it isn't straight kicks all the way through. Based on how you have it charted, the difficulty is pretty much at a one bubble tops, but you have it at four. Nothing in how you charted it is difficult to hit for a drummer.

Guitar: You're missing straight up sections in the guitar. There is a constant riff played around 3:07, which is only charted partially and sporadic. I didn't go back through, but there are other areas to improve (e.g. note scaling).

Vocals: Most section of notes are much too long. The singer has finished singing, yet your note is still going. Conversely, at the end of most sections, the singer is still singing and the note has ended. This happens on almost every phrase. You're missing a LOT of slides where the singer crescendos up, but with your chart, the singer would have to jump quickly, since your notes are too long before the jump. If you send it to Atruejedi, you should do a comparison after he's done so you can see where there could be improvement.

I only write these critiques as this is a great song, and only looking to see an improved chart out of it. Hope you are good with the criticism as it just will help make you a better author overall.

Keep at it!!

there's a song that I wanted to play in the GFC ten years ago ... I even thought about creating it someday, but here it was made.
the friend there said everything, not so good but can improve from new updates. I would be happy to help though I just know how to tinker with the simpler file that is the midi.
