hey, i've listened to about 5 of yours songs now and decided to review this one. you are pretty skilled in compilation. keep making stuff! in this song i think it has really good rythm, but it needs to be more exciting. just keep making stuff, you're definitely good at it!
Im glad you are listening to my songs. I think that I would agree with you about this song, its kind of bland.
Thank you very much for the review!!!
when you make it, you have to put some chords in, raise the volume for the main melody, put some like breakdowns and build ups, and stress on the melody.
Thanks for the great advice! Will definitely remember that.
Intro is empty. Try to introduce with kick and bass. Try spending some time on the bass.
Clap rhythm was unnatural. Try using claps on 2 and 4 rather than on the offbeats. Bass sounds like boobase rather than a resonance pluck or sawtooth that is usually appropriate for trance. It seems to harmonize well, though.
The lead needs to be brought out more and moved up an octave. Its too low and too quiet. There needs to be more variety in the melody to keep interest.
The instruments are very quiet, and the painful rhythm sorta hurts. Its very, very repetitive. A good trance song has an intro that's DJ friendly, and then drops the energetic rhythm, and builds back up to an epic climax. That's the main point of trance.
Here are some good NG trance artists to learn elements from:
Pulstate (he's pro now)
They all do a great job of building up, and using the elements of trance well. Pulstate particularly excels at pretty much all elements. Karco is better at the macro arrangement, and Endlessnumber is good at melodic work and repetitive-styled arrangement. I'd advise that you check them all out to get a feel for the "point" of trance.
Just keep working and learning. You will improve. Try to learn music theory, so you know all about key and chords. Try to learn about processing drums so they are phat and punchy, and try to learn about arrangement so its like an auditory journey.
Could use some work, but good for a beginner. Synths were generally nice for someone at your level. 7/10, 5/5 (because everyone loves 5s, and everyone gets 0d).
Thank you very much for the review and references!
I will definitely check out those artists and try and learn from them!
Thank you for all the advice!!!
Make it more interjetic. It gets kinda boring. The start is also kinda boring
Thank you for the review!
I would probably agree with you in the sense that it's boring. That's useful advice.
Change the name to CLAP CLAP CLAP!!
These elements you speak of are pretty nifty keep at it.
Thank you for the review and encouragement!
