Is this a good start at a song?
Hey. I just want to start off telling you I been practing reason 4 for about 3 months now. It's really fun and this is my 2nd attempt at a song. I'll put the song below, it's not finished, not mastered, all the sounds aren't in but I would like to know if its a good start. It's a housey kind of song? You tell me.

Howdy, I don't know anything about House music, so I wouldn't be a good judge of your song.

But I think most people in this forum won't listen to a song if they have to download it first

Have you thought about hosting your song on Soundcloud?.

You can get a free Soundcloud account here:

Hi, welcome to the forum... :), it's great to hear that you are getting started and enjoying using Reason, we were all Reason nubes at one point in our life lol ( and er..still learning new and exciting things on our journey as we use it, as well as music production itself). If you plan to stick around the propellerhead forums regulary / occasionally then it would be interesting to hear what kinda background you have with music, e.g what you use or used to use, your setup... general stuff..about yourself just as an introduction to others here.

It's becoming more unusual to actually upload direct upload download music files here for their music so maybe it would benefit you if you hosted your music on one of the many music streaming servers such as soundclick / soundcloud ect..rather than individual music mp3 files. I'll check out the track anyways though there is a dedicated music forum here.

For direct linking to .reason files / combinators for example you can use a drop box account where you can have a huge amount of free online storage without users having to wait for count down timers to elapse just get access to a file.

Interesting track, I've heard alot worse in my time, there is some interesting sounds in there and use of effects kinda remnds me of the 80's for some reason lol.
Some other sounds don't mix well and the production sounds like it was made with laptop speakers but yeah, still work with it and finish it, it's got potential as the basis of a good track, some nice buildups in there :)

Yea, I was gonna say...posting it on a streaming site will get more people to listen to it. Nobody(really) wants to DL a song just to hear if the beginning is any good or not. Try sound cloud! Then it'll be game on

As another poster stated put your song on and share the link and I will give it a listen. Otherwise....
