> - I think the track will sound more like big beat if there is more usage of chopped breakbeats and if the kick and snare have more prominence. Big beat generally has an extra emphasis on the first kick of a measure. Big beat also generally has a more prominent, funky bassline. Although the track doesn't necessarily need to sound like big beat, I think improving the sound of the kick, snare and bassline will help regardless.
> - Personally, I found that the instrument choices sounded "cheap". The songwriting itself is whimsical and cute in a way that could be interesting in a rhythm game big beat (I feel like there's a 9KEYS influence? Or something like comic magic), but because of the instrument choices they ended up being grating to me. Maybe it would have been better to have something like techno pop for the main instruments, and use chopped up samples of real instruments in the background? Big beat generally takes heavily from samples.
> All scores will use the same fairly strict scale this time, regardless of class. (I apologize as scores for some classes may feel harsh...!)
