I wasn't really planning to make this one. It just kind of happened! I found this really cool, easy to use Trap mixer thing online. I was fooling around with the available loops on there, just playing them in combinations and it sounded so good.

Haha damn, I came close to the file size limit! I wasn't even thinking about the length. Only, "Hey, this sounds so cool! I think I'll record something and see how that goes!" I didn't realize how long it was until I finished recording via Audacity and played it back.

I shamelessly admit I got carried away while having a blast just putting this together. Even if it's a little over 9 minutes long, it's never boring throughout. I just love every loop that I've used from this mixer.

The track may be sorta repetitive in places--yet I'm still very happy with how this turned out. :D I knew "epic" had to be in the title, and for some reason the word "trick" came into my head as I was thinking about what title I should give this mix. Plus there's that cool vox part that goes, "Get, get, get out of my head"... At least it's a little better than "Epic Trap Mix" or something like that.

EDIT: I put this track through Audacity equalizer and the sound is clearer, and everything, even that little bass effect and the voices, you should be able to hear better now. I also tested the mp3 out on this old phone I have that I've put a ton of music into--and it sounds really good! For such a small speaker on that, music seems to sound really good coming out of it!

The synths are really interesting and I think you have half of the way finished. But I have to agree with two comments that has been said here before:

1 - There's basically no bass and this makes the song very harsh, causing ear fatigue really quickly. And for a 9 minute piece, this is even worse. Try adding the low end, putting some bass and you'll see a real improvement!

2 - It actually is a little too loud. I don't agree with the loudness war we live in these days, and pushing the sound this loud might give you less headroom to work with. (You might have some trouble when putting some bass and kicks, as the low end really uses a lot of headroom)

As I said, you have a good starting point, some interesting synths going on here. If you tweak this a little, work more on the low end, you might bring life to a real gem, so keep working on it!
You know you rock, Fox!

Cheers

awesome synths! the last reviewer i suspect to be a troll <,,< ... 1 star, really? oh well, people and their oppinions, sigh, this would sound great with a deep 808 bass and kicks, all this needs is a little depth to it, its too sqeeeky, other than that its awesome, this will make a nice trap tune with a little quick fix, love it.

Yeah, I'll add some bass and possibly just get the loops individually and experiment on Acid with those, later on. :)

It's abundantly clear you're having a blast and i realize this will come off as raining on your parade but i have to chime in with the other person, where's the bottom end to this mix gone?

You have here this peak of volume around 320hz extending over to about 5khz and it sounds like everything below is cut off via a high pass filter or some such, aside from making the piece sound like a recording of a recording of another recording that came straight off of somebodies earbuds, all your drums and synths are largely going to waste and the audience is left with just the snap of their top end.

( which is a pity because just a few minutes in there's still all kinds of things going on, most of which i unfortunately can't hear fully )

I'd strongly recommend giving this a listen on different soundsystems to get a first hand impression of what i'm saying here and rest assured this is a mastering issue not a composing one or what have you, either disabling or rolling back the high pass filter on whatever equaliser you're using should put it right and if not increasing some low end frequencies will.

Thanks for sharing.

Ah. I see what you're getting at there. Thanks a bunch for the advice! I'll see about fixing that when I can set the time aside to do so. :)

As you mention in hearing it through different ways, I know I need new headphones. It's an annoyance I can't do that sort of test when one ear bud just doesn't work right anymore. :/ Perhaps soon I could get the chance to go out and purchase new ones.
