First off, I'm gonna go right ahead and say that this isn't really a serious project... I was just messing around in FL Studio, and this came out... There are no doubt mixing issues, among a few other things that could be changed... But unless this gets a lot of good feedback, I can't say I'll keep working on it.
Figured it's been a while since I've uploaded anything, so I'd muck around and make something to upload.

And yes... it completely shifts gears at the end of the song with little to no transition. Why does it randomly switch? I dunno, cause I've been playing a lot of piano lately, and I felt like including a short piano piece at the end of a trance song. That's why. Live with it.

Programs/VSTs used:
FL Studio 10
Toxic Biohazard (Synths/Bass)
Miroslav Philharmonik (Piano)

I like the first part but theres a lot like it

So its not vary unike in its way exept the rest.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'm most certainly not pioneering a new breed of trance, definitely... But then, I'm not really trying to.

Regardless, glad you like it!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'm quite fond of my piano sound, works very well with pretty much everything... And no worries, not like I'm professional either.

Glad you like it though!

Best part, to me, is the piano-and-bass section from 1:36 to 2:44. Catchy and classy-sounding. I think it'd be awesome if you would expand and continue on that. The short piano-only piece that follows is beautiful in its own right, but you really had something going there for that piano-bass section.

The bass kick is kind of underwhelming for the intro, but I think it complements the plus=piano section well.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I've been trying to include piano a lot more in my songs lately... simply because the piano is one of my favorite instruments, that and I finally have a full 88 key keyboard to play with, so you'll no doubt be hearing a lot more piano in every style of music I do.

Glad you liked it!

This deserves it

Yeah, I gotta say, first off, that this does indeed deserve to be up above my piece, Liquid Skies, in the trance portal.

Now, for some critiquing.
When the kick plays by itself, it sounds like there's just a crazy amount of high end reverb on it. A high end attack is okay, but that much reverb in the high spectrum can kill a kick. I would say bring the high cut down on whatever reverb application you used (if you used one) or if you didn't use reverb, put a Fruity Parametric EQ 2 on it and just roll off the highs around 4-5khz.

I like the bass. It just seems to get a little thin in the lower register. Like, it's not quite capable of oscillating that low. And I'm sure it's not my phones ;D

I love, love, LOVE the piano. No complaints there.

The snare is really dry, which is something I find really nice in trance, but it's also becoming somewhat generic, since it's so nice.

And the sawtooth gated pad for the lead is also decently generic. BUT, you redeemed it by making an interesting melody.

All in all, I'd say: KEEP GOING! Finish this out, and keep making more music.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah, overall I'm still working on making a kick that I am satisfied with, I've come close a few times, but I'm still working out the kinks. Personally, I think this one is a bit too punchy, but that could've just been my inability to EQ it properly as well.

As for the bass, I don't seem to have a problem hearing it, but then, I have very beastly headphones when it comes to bass... This is actually one of the bass sounds I HAVEN'T had a problem hearing at lower frequencies oddly enough. Then, bass is something I'm still working out, at the moment, the bass I use changes from song to song.

The piano... well... That's practically my signature piano sound, so I'm glad you like it!

As for the snare, I've actually started layering my snare with claps to give it a little more presence, it's also something I'm still working on, but I am liking the effect the layering has, it's not immediately noticeable, and it does give it a little more punch without making it overwhelming.

And yeah, the lead is very generic, it's actually a House preset that I fell in love with in Toxic Biohazard, you can hear this lead in practically all of my electronic work, although I add different effects to it from time to time. A lead is also something I've been working on making my own of, but for now, I enjoy this one enough to keep using it until I'm satisfied with my own handcrafted lead/pad.

Thanks for the review!
