This is my first try at a Trance song, and I'm really proud of it (and I'm rarely proud of my own songs...). It's also my first attempt at something slightly professional (Lolz, over 10 automation clips :P) and I used the mixer quite a lot. I guess I can finally be considered an amateur ^^.
All synths were made using Sytrus (Ugh, I seriously should start learning z3ta+ :[ ), and this uses three effects I made while expermenting. For example, the effect at 0:55 was made using only a kick sample, the one at about 1:23 was made using only a clap sample, and the one at 0:33 was actually made using a double bass in pizzicato, believe it or not (I increased its resonance, went to the very low notes in the piano roll, and did a glissando downwards XD). Any other sound effects like the one at 0:55 were made using Sytrus. This also uses a reverse cymbal and a piano from the SGM V2.01 soundfont, I believe, and a handful of mixer effects such as the Fruity Bass Boost, Flanger, Delay, Reverb, Overdrive, Love Philter, Parametric EQ 2 (thanks to Blackhole12 for the awesome guide) and Limiter. All beats made from scratch, and the tempo is 170 BPM, my fastest yet. By the way, if anyone wants any of the drum samples/soundfonts/synths that I used, don't hesitate to ask ;).
Anyway, as for the melodies, I really believe I stole each one. I don't know, I just went in front of the piano roll, started doodling, and it resulted in some very catchy melodies which I just had the feeling that I stole from somewhere. That means if there's any melody you think I stole, tell me from where and I'll think up something else. Also, the structure of this song is pretty weird. You can't say it has a fixed chorus. What I was imagining was that in the song, you're drifting through infinity at top speed, and the ambient part is when everything blurs around you and you slow down. Then, it starts all over again, and you're blown away to an unknown dimension. (Dramatic to the extreme :D:D). First time I ever used the arpeggiator in that ambient part, by the way :P.
Heh, long author's comments FTW XD. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it; has a sort of spacey feel to it. Thanks to my friend Erik for helping me with the intro a little (he spotted some dissonance and moved a few notes XD) and my friend Matthew for hearing the song, complimenting me like hell :D, and helping me look for a CD Icon. Don't forget to vote and comment; if you give me a helpful review, I'll review you back with a monster review (you can mention which song/flash/art of yours you want reviewed in your review if you want; if you don't I'll pick either your most popular one or the nicest sounding one IMO) and I respond to all reviews. Thanks for listening, thanks for listening to these horribly long comments, and most of all, enjoy!
EDIT: Fixed some stuff:
1.) Changed the cheesy synth at the beginning to a saw synth.
2.) Made the percussion the right volume (hopefully).
3.) Made the outro shorter and less boring.
4.) Added a faint pad in the part after the intro.
5.) Fixed a few transitions.
6.) Added some FX in the ambient part.
7.) Added a new synth in the ambient part.
8.) Played around with the volumes and automation clips a little.
9.) Made the song sound slightly better ^^.
I may edit this again, making it longer with more melodies and fixing up the piano solo a little or something, but for now, I'll leave this in peace to work on my newer songs :).
