Pretty nice, overal the sounds work well together. Some parts are very cool but some of the different melodies don't fit that well after one another. I think it might help for you to use the kaosspad and try the different scales, then stay in the same scale on each pattern. But if you play in melodies with the kaosspad, make sure you add some rest notes (silences) or legato notes yourself, to get some more variation in there.

But good work, keep it up!

Thanks for the good advice DS-10 Dominator. I agree with you and appreciate your nice suggestions. I'm going to try to make things fit together more smoothly. I wonder what kind of a style others are using to put together their songs? For example: Many times I fill all my 16 patterns with melodies I like and then string them together in various ways into a song. But I feel this leads to a disjointed song that sounds like many small pieces just patched together. What I want to know is how you can make smooth transitions between the 16 mini patterns and make a song that flows. Any good suggestions? Thanks in advance :)

Good name choice. It sounds like a cool space shooter or side scroller.

I agree with DS-10 Dominator, I found that it lacks some harmony (chord progression) motion and besides it seems that the melody is sometimes out of key (or else it's a very exotic scale). Anyway, I like your sound, thanks for sharing.
