Any ideas on how I could fix this? The song in general just sounds "empty", as in, there doesn't seem to be much to it, and I'm not sure how to fix this.

Cool. I like that it's a bit out of tune. But vocals do not fit there for me.... but you could change them to some robot-voice.
Yeah they probably didn't fit because of their positions. I've fixed that, and it sounds much better!
Maybe if you had an echo effect on the voice and some calf reverb on it, it might fit in better. :) Tip: If you're planning on using calf reverb , out of the nine dials present in it, I suggest turning down, the decay time dial a tiny bit, and play around with the wet and dry dials. :) Yep I agree....
That I laughed is a good thing. Maybe there is a little too much "come on" (?). Yes, the chorus works well. Well, I definitely agree with their being too much. That's been toned down a lot, but I'll continue to tweak it ;) One last question though: These next series of chiptune songs are gonna be i...

Nice one. I laughed at 01m25s, I did not expect it.
Aha, not really sure if that's a good thing or not-

I fixed that sound effect btw, it (mostly) fits in better. And what did you think about the chorus effect? Not sure if I should remove that...
Mainly on the voice on this one (it's also a bit offbeat on some places, I'll fix that), and the chorus effect I added after the build-up, not sure what I think about either of these. Mainly not sure about the voice really fitting in, and if the chorus goes away from the chiptune theme too much. (An...
I listened to the second link. So far it's sounding cool. I listened to the edited version. Nice one. Although I do not know much about your work (I remember your album and Petrichor), I feel that you have progressed well! Thank you both! I feel that you have progressed well! That's great to hear! ...
Oh! It has to be the computer load problem! I happened to be playing games beforehand, so another synth seemed to lag a bit. I'll have to try restarts after I play games. Only thing is, this did it once after messing with a few settings, and it hasn't done it since. I emailed the creator of the othe...
Here: I cant reproduce How does this (attached) works for you? If it fails, i suspect that you have a lot in memory. Shut the pc down, and restart -Also remember to use one channel for each instrument (not that it mattered in my file) The sounds just glitch whenever the vst is unmuted. I'll try it ...
Reply + Slight bump;
Edited it and changed/added some things. It still needs mixing however, so keep your volume low to avoid headaches...
