general look at some diffshow2reply wall of cry mods.
Tough words but, sometimes i look at this diff and think you just placed the notes on time, randomized them in some website and then moved the jacks around.
I can't see a pattern going on in most of your map, and that's kinda bad. Sure, beginners won't really care about it, but you're going for some quality charts, am i right?
I'm not going to say anything about the vocal parts because i'm absolutely horrible at following vocal pitch. But when you're going for something mechanical like drums you should have patterns that either repeat or remember each other.
For example this. You made a pattern and then mirrored it later! Those are patterns that look like each other. Doesn't really need to be mirroring, you can use other things to make a pattern remember another, like making 1232 4121 or even 1234 2134.
So here goes: Rearrange these parts taking in consideration what I said above:
00:10:305 - to 00:17:505 -
00:19:905 - to 00:38:955 -
02:17:341 - to 02:35:791 -
00:38:955 - This part also looks kinda random, but since you're kinda following the guitars here, I recommend you to make the LNs follow a 1234 pattern since the pitch goes up with time. For the rest of the notes you should do what I said above while still resembling pitch. I know you're following the drums but making a connection with pitch going up sounds like a good idea. Maybe make something like 2141, 3212, 4323, 3414, it's similar patterns but they change the most used column making it look like they're going to the right.
Do the same for the repetitions of the parts said above. (you can vary things ofc, but try to follow more or less the same thing)
00:16:305 (16305|1,16605|2,16905|1) - maybe you could make these notes LNs for the sake of expression :v
01:18:405 - add a note on 4
01:19:605 - ^ 3
01:20:805 (80805|3) - move to 1
01:22:605 (82605|0) - ^ 3
01:24:405 - add a note on 1
NM also looks a bit random at some sections (mostly the same sections as EZ).
It seems more forgivable in this diff though, so whether or not you should change things here too is up to you
00:07:005 - suddenly stopping to follow the bass here makes this a bit inconsistent, same mistake in the other diffs as well, fix in all of them
02:09:691 (129691|0) - move to 2 (pitchu, know you're not really going for the relevance here, but jacking the end of each pattern with the start of the other would fit perfectly for this part)
02:10:891 (130891|1) - move to 1
03:06:691 (186691|0,186691|2) - move to 2 and 4? fits well imo
00:45:255 - should probably be the same pattern as 00:44:055 - but mirrored for consistency with the last patterns.
01:40:455 - should resemble 01:39:255 - change to triplets
01:41:655 - should be rolls to resemble the pattern before it
seems to be ok overall, the chords build some consistency between the patterns
not much in this diff
just remember my wall of text about making patterns resemble each other for these sections:
00:19:905 - this pattern man, instead of doing that long uncomfortable anchor try to make something like this where you change the position of the anchor every beat, and then every four beats you change the pattern to something like this (basically the same pattern with the columns switched). Change the repetitions too.
keep what i told you in irc in mind for that other section alright
alright i'm really lazy and it doesn't really sound like this diff needs mods
i told i wouldn't really be able to find anything here
most of the suggestions in the easier diffs also apply to the harder ones, so make sure you take a look at everything
sorry for the lazy mod
good luck ranking this o/
all applied kek
