"Separate Ways" started as a 32-measure arpeggiofest and from there I built an entire song around it. Although it's still in a rudimentary stage, I personally believe that this number marks my entry into a higher echelon of GarageBand mastery (compared to my other attempts at trance). I went and looked for inspiration on YouTube; most of the people used FL but I learned a little about trance syncopation and managed to incorporate some ideas into this song.

Like the progression you put into this song, really awesome.
I think the kick drum really needs more punch to it, I can barely hear it, as it was muffled by the synths..
Honestly, the beginning wasn't that good, seemed a bit too loud.. But when I got to 1.26, the breakdown, the song caught my ears. I seriously love the piano sound you used, which was greatly enhanced by the lead synth in the background and the arpeggio. Really epic.
Honestly, I'd prefer if the arpeggio was a bit softer. If it were, it would be worthy of my mp3 player. =) I could also hear some clipping near the beginning when the arpeggio got a bit too loud.
Overall, great song!!

Thank you for a concise and constructive review. I'm currently shifting focus from working on songs to mastering equalization which proves to be absolutely pivotal in music. I rush through the normalizing process so as a result the bass could be limited whereas the treble and the 'crunch' becomes overbearing and I'm working on that still. Additionally I can't disagree with the points you've addressed; when I get around to this song again I'll definitely invest in a more creative intro and piano line. Once again I appreciate your feedback.

I really like how it's controlled randomness. It's really catchy and has got my toe tappin. You have a really defined beat. I can see what you meant by arpeggio fest though. Great song all in all.

"Controlled randomness" has to be one of the more accurate terms to describe my works en collectivus, thanks for your review.
