Ya im in the same place as you. I just made a new song from fl studio thats waiting approval thats simply called work in progress although i think this is alot better than mine. keep it up you will be amazing with some time
Well this is a good start
you need inspiration from the right places.
the 3xosc and its filters are your best friends. When in doubt the 3xosc always deliveres a trippy vibe in the right place for a trance song.
I would avoid epic sounding melodies except where absolutely applicable. Sometimes epic melodies can put that ooomph into the end or peak of a song.
If you want inspiration head over to the trance section of this guide to edm(electronic dance music). http://techno.org/electronic-music-gu ide/
itll give you some ground to put your feet on so you can create your own trance.
just to let you know builds and breakdowns and drums are the skeleton of trance. when you have too many bones the muscle and tissue gets distorted into odd positions and isnt as visually appealing. in laymans terms if you focus and rely too much on builds and breakdowns they ruin the song.
Thank you very much for the help.
I'll be sure to take your advice to heart, and I'll definitely take a good look at the guide.
I can hear what you mean by the builds and breakdowns, and the song sounds off because of it.
Again, thank you for the help.
