Comments
TuneName: nf-alive.xm
Really a great song. I think it builds up really well into the jazzy twist. I like the bass line, and really love the epiano melody right
at the end. Overall, flows real nice, sounds real smooth... Well done!
norfair establishes the mood of the song from the first order and carries it throughout the tune.  the leads, structure, skill, and
overall enjoyability of the tune makes it my choice for first. Props to norfair and zephyr for making this another competative gc.

jazzy.  sounds a little muddled in places, but otherwise great mixing, separation, and overall tracking.  very groovy.

fun, upbeat, twiddly, happy. seems to know where it's going to and is just decent. nice usage of sounds.

From a tracking point, this is the best tune of the pack. Is also has the best beat, good leads and jazzy chords
(which i like a lot). Norfair/Kosmic is a pretty good tracker, and it's easy to hear through something like this. If you like jazz, you'll
probably like Norfair.

Once again a very nice, well put together piece. The light cut up and looped samples went really well with the heavy ones. Norfair really made
good use of the different samples available and even though the quality of the different synths and loops in the samplepack were not so great, he
chopped them up real nice and efficient-like. It even came together rather well in the end.

TuneName: hops.it
Hopscotch is yet another feather in Zephyrs, now rather crowded cap...Is it just me or does this song sound like a track for some
sophisticated spy movie?.......maybe it's just me then! Great song Zephyr!!!
What can I say? Superb tune with superb tracking. I listened to this one while making a sandwich and...it tasted great. :)

Nice track with neat piano-chords.. I thought the song was a bit boring but it was the best in the pack (except my song hehehe). Some nice
chipmelodies which were a little out of tune... the drums was too none-realistic for my taste and I donīt like dnb-drums that much but I guess
they kinda fits. The leads that enters the song around 3:15 is very nice, well-tracked and all :). Hmm the songs feels kinda empty, maybe more leads
and different parts should be added.


TuneName: psionic.it
I was impressed by the way he kept a good ear out for the tuning, etc. Not everyone in this particular compo had their tones all working
together. This is a song I'd definitely listen to for fun later on.



TuneName: ayme_mad.it
This tune really impressed me since the beggining, good chords and fantastic leads, very melodic! great structure and use of samples!

TuneName: sunomono
ok...lemme just start by saying that all the tunes were pretty damn good.  but this was the only one that i had no major quips about.   
like the others were like...damn...i swear i've heard this tune before...oh yeah i friggin played a nintendo rpg back in the day that   
kinda sounded like that.  maybe it was the samples used, maybe it's just the pop/synth style that i don't like too much.  but regardless, sunomono   
was this real chill, flowy tune that i could seriously get into.  it did repeat each of it's patterns several times but i felt that it didn't take   
away from the tune and didn't mind it.  though the ending was kinda lacking, that might simply be my wanting the song to continue for a   
couple more orders.  great job.
