I like songs mellow like this. I like the tone and mood you used for this, very calm. The ambient sounds you used as well were nice! 5/5 and 10/10 from me! Keep it up ^^
thanx. i aim to please. ^-^
i like how it suddenly seems to go into a tunnel at 1:12, like not literally but thats what i was picturing when i heard that part lol (also because it was set to "portal")
lol its a time warp ;)
Well since I'm not the most knowledgeable of some of the other genres I decided to give your Trance song a review.
You started off with a pretty cheesy sounding drum line. Sounded like I was listening to a workout video or a Wii commercial. Thats aight if thats what your going for. Nothing wrong with it just didn't sound like I was in for a Trance song.
About 1:00 or so we hit a synthe. Trance has long drum builds, you got that down but the style of drums needs some work. A Four to the Floor kick is a pretty basic thing in Trance. I've been told that Trance is not only about the melody all the time but the beat too. You have a beat but your melody doesn't really shine. I think the strong points and why some people like Trance is the build up to an epic release.
2:20 you have a low pass synthe filtering in or something. Then you add another lead on top that. Around 2:50 it sounds like this lead is getting louder every few seconds. Not sure if you tried that kinda confused me.
-Hope I'm not coming off as a jerk just trying to give some pointers.
Another thing about Trance is Reverb is a must along with some delay. A good Trance will make a 6 minute song seem like it was only 2. The longer the song the harder it is to keep your listener interested. If you achieve an airy light weight feeling with Trance you will give the listener a pleasurable song to enjoy.
Most synthe you use will have reverb along with some samples. Trance you can never have enough reverb but remember not to overdo the settings and blur everything.
-Suggestions - Keep a strong beat and a pumping lead to interest the listener early on and keep them interested.
-Things I liked - Your style is unique and if you add more Trance elements to it you could come up with something really different then what is out there now.
Hope this helps! If you have any questions feel free to ask I'll try to answer ASAP.
Hope I didn't come across as mean.
no, you did not come across as mean one bit. its the constructive criticism like this that will help me strive to push harder and keep growing with my music. this song is actually the first one i made with a new program that i got. I was still just trying to figure it out. This only took me about an hour to do, so yeah. lol. also, about the lead getting louder, yes, it was supposed to do that. also, thank you for noticing my unique style. nothing wrong with being unique.
Thank you for the advice, would love to hear more on any other tracks i have, or will have in the future.
I think you need to add more instruments in the beginning of the song. Use plugin z3ta+, you can find it in the internet.
got a link?
thanx for the review.
