as the title states. i left this comment on another authors custom. just wanna know if im out of line or just being a dick
I'm surprised no one hasn't said anything yet (prolly dont wanna look like an asshole)
but your customs need alot of work ....
tempo mapping is completely non exsistent
drums dont even resemble whats actually being played
guitars and bass are wrong....
and this is like that on every song you've released so far.... i went thru all of em. [except vocal only songs]
i get it your new and dont know quite what to do. and thats fine.
authoring is an art-form and is not meant for everyone.
it takes ALOT of time and UNDERSTANDING to make some of the best customs youve seen around here.
so for starters, i would tell you this. before you release any customs or make any more customs
learn how to properly tempo map/beat sync. this is the biggest first step and honestly the most important. theres tutorials on this provided by this site. as well as youtube vids. you can also try to do this in other programs as well but really try to understand this practice before you do anything.
2.learn how to read music. most times you can go to ultimate guitar get a gp5 file convert to midi. then fl studio it of transfer it to reaper. this is the most fundamental and in most cases accurate way to figure out whats being played. not all songs will have this, not all songs will be correct. most times you can find the sheet music/tab for it. you need to understand the notes being played so you can accurately chart that into your song. otherwise youll be lost...and will be completely incorrect.
if you can learn the above things i mentioned and perfect it everything else will fall into place.
the reason why this site survives and has quite a big user base is the quality of the customs supplied by the authors here.
Us authors pride ourselves on making quality customs for players to enjoy. nothing beats the feeling of having people playing and loving the songs you create and makes a fantastic place for everyone to come together over music.
none of us here would sacrifice that quality. and we kinda expect other authors here to do the same.
i know this seems harsh and i really do mean well. but please listen to what im saying. learn, improve.
and most people can tell a quality custom over one that is not. and users will simply just not download. or even leave feedback
