howdy new guy here...i made this after only 2 months of screwing around i still have a lot to learn i just wanted to share this and see what people think check it out here as well and check out my other song demo
This was pretty nice! I like the way how all the tracks blend together and how they fade in/out, you did a pretty good job on that.
A few tips:
- I don't know if the off tempo parts was intentional, but it does sometimes sound strange. I would suggest sticking to the tempo if you're planning on making trance & techno songs. If it is intentional, maybe you did want to pass a meaning through it, but I would really suggest just sticking to the tempo at the start (once you'll get more experienced you could then try out more things, but in this case it did sound sometimes good, but sometimes strange)
- The strong beat at the start is a really good trance stereotype, it kinda made me laugh xD, but you should make it LOUDER! The beat is what we should hear the most. Also, I would recommend adding a little background beat to parts where there is only a main melody going on (ex around 1:00).
I'm guessing you're on a good start, so keep making more and you're definitely on your way! Keep making more! ;D
i actually didnt notice that till you mentioned no nothing should ever be offbeat ( as far as my percussion to melody) i will deffinetly fix that.
the beggining i really just didnt know what to add i did not want to make it just a kick maybe a toned down snare or something idk its my first song hahahah i wanted to get a good feel for my songs i wanted a nice flow to them from start to finished but these things will come in time
I greatly apprecite the constructive criticism as it will help improve my music! thanks again
IMO: Overall it was pretty good. The beginning seemed a little drawn out, but the second half was nice. The blending spot on and the fading in and out was well done also.
thanks man i have a demo of my second song on soundcloud if you wanna check that out most people who heard this song and then the new demo said the newer one is better which is normal cause i learn something new everyday and will try to progressivly get better but check out the demo to man thanks again for the review
