The Hard chart is a little bit repetitive
DJ, for comments like that please use stepcloud. We want to try to only have full reviews in the threads.
(T) Technique - sim author's skills in pattern manipulation
(S) Sync - offset, BPM shifts, no misrhythms (obvious errors)
(I) Interpretation/Expression - creativity and imagination in translating the music, evoking meaningfulness in the file
(E) Engagement - fun, replayable and shows no signs of dragging the player along
(F) Flow - matching scales/chord progression, proper structure to the file, good transitions
(A) Additional deductions
beat 0 issue exists in Hard and Medium chart
Sync looks fine (although I think offset should be something like -2.108 instead of -2.103, anyway you'll have to change it to fix the beat 0 issue)
NB : notes written in italics are subjective or ambiguous comments and are obviously not important into final judgement
Hard : 3/3/3/2/3/(0) [14/15]
2.103 : no jump here ?
2.103 - 9.989 : this part isn't really an issue, but remember there's 14ms between 1/16th and 1/96th. May cause some frustrating greats....
4.589 + 5.961 + 7.332 : but then why is this one a 1/16th ?
7.525 : what about this one ?
67.932 - 73.075 : you're using jumps on this part ? i find it a bit excessive...
73.418 - 78.818 : I don't understand the layering here I hear the very light bass, but there are some doubles I don't understand. rhythms and patterns are fine though
90.132 + 91.503 + 92.875 + 94.246 : I find these jumps ambiguous, unlike those in the following similar patterns (96.989, for instance)
100.846 :  part should stop here, but changing the pattern implies a jackhammer.... hmm...
101.103 + 102.475 + 103.846 + 105.218 : see 90.132 + 91.503 + 92.875 + 94.246
I like this chart a lot, but it is a loooooong and very challenging jumpstream... It's far beyond my skill level, so I can't tell if it's fun or not, but that's why I gave 2 on the "Engagement" criteria.
I really enjoyed the music and pitch relevancy throughout the chart. The patterns seem to flow nicely (again I can't play it at full speed lol).
Medium : 2/3/1/1/2/(0) [9/15]
6.132 : not sure about this one
67.932 - 78.903 : I liked this part, more interesting than the rest.
This chart is really bland and doesn't have enough intersting parts. There's too much 16th streams when the music offers plenty of sounds you can step. The Hard chart had the layering and some variations, but this one is too draggy for me. Also the non-stream parts weren't really interesting enough, except the one I mentioned.
So, I can't say much about this one, you may want to put more effort into this one.
Easy : 3/3/2/1/3/(0) [12/15]
If I had any comments to write about this chart, they would be positive. The patterns you used and the structure are pretty solid.
There are many many ways to step a file, and I don't know if this one is really suited for an Easy chart. I'd say this one is arguably as tricky as the Medium chart. From the point of view of a not-experienced player, I think the Easy chart is really really tough. When I started playing Stepmania, I could play 170bpm streams but I wasn't able to read 8th jumpstreams at all, if there was too much jumps within a chart I wouldn't play it. Same thing goes for one of my friends.
Reagarding the chart itself, it is more interesting than the Medium chart but it has its draggy feel near the end because a lot of parts are repeated and the music relevancy is pretty basic.
So, we have a well-structured, tough and a bit draggy chart. I won't leave any judgement on this one.
Beginner : Accept
NPS : okay
40.675 : ambiguous note, i'd move it up or down a 8th
79.761 + 82.503 + 85.246 : this one don't work as a 8th, move it down
109.075 : this is the only one crash cybal you emphasize
I don't know how beginner players will react to those 8th but it most of them are correctly placed. Ok for me
---->ACCEPTED, but I'd like you to look at the 8th I pointed out.

Review updated. My laptop died and the only computer I could access was an old thing that can't run DDream Studio because of its broken sound card or something (750ms offset and crappy speakers = impossible review )
So now that I have access to my other computer I had the opportunity to finish this. Sorry for the wait.
im a terrible stepper lol, i sent in a resub yestersay, this will prob be my last chart ps ty for reviewing berry, will try and fix soon
