I don't know why but every time I sit back and listen to this song I start to get really sleepy .o.

Man do I love uplifting trance. IMO it's one of the most badass genres out there. Once you listen to the song, it takes you one this insane trip or shall I say "trance" that puts you in this immense euphoria of sound. Sure it may be repetitive, but it's not supposed to be "musically" complex; trance artists mainly "paint the spectrum" and makes it sound good. But... that was back then, now a days trance is hardly identifiable with house and some "progressive trance" tracks pretty much used the same theme of chillaxing :/ (which I like, I like all music) This is probably my best attempt going oldshool, but I'm sure there'll be better ones in the future :/

This took so long to finish, I started it before I even made the Scazon .flp file. I wanted to try out a kind of compression where the side-chain is really strong but then there's this compressor that's pushing those low volume areas, after the kick hits, so that it kinda makes an illusion that there's a side-chain but the peaks show there isn't any volume drop O.o I followed this guys advice from Vega and I tried to level every single arp and pad to the same level (for each type) and then created submixes from there and boy did that turn out to be helpful.

I called this Silver Rain because I was also trying to make some flanger/phaser white noise thing which I use for transitions for the song and every time I hear it, I imagine mercury rain. So yea... (I used the sweep up version of the effect in The Six Tales of the Orient if you've heard it ;)

Oooo...I love the frantic synths at the beginning and the energy at :15 when the kick comes in. It progresses a little slowly, but a combination of the filters and synths keep me engaged. I'm not sure I liked the snare sample at 1:25 too much. It seemed a little too soft and wet, as opposed to hard-hitting and sharp and crisp. I loved that angry, distorted bass at 1:54 though. Your transition into the breakdown at 2:22 could've been smoother IMO, but the breakdown itself provided quite necessary structural relief. I had a little trouble following the melody at 2:50 - its upbeat mood just didn't seem to fit with the atmosphere. I will compliment you on your mixing, though. I think that "this guy's advice from Vega" turned out well for you. ;) I think you have a good sense of harmony, as evidenced by how you added in that melody from 2:50 to the part at 4:45. Still, the part from 4:45 to around 6:00 is very repetitive. I like your style, RoVeRDude58, but I think you need to start making pieces that are either less repetitive or progress much faster. In fact, I challenge you to make a piece that's fewer than 4 minutes long. Sometime this summer, please. I'm not kidding. Also, the ending was a bit lazily done IMO. It was very sudden and not very conclusive, and if you're going to make a piece 8 minute long, it should at least have a proper conclusion. Still, I love the synth work, the mixing, and the atmosphere. Your textures are always luscious, well-balanced and full, but you have to change them more often than once a minute. Otherwise, keep up the good work, RoVeRDude58! ;)
