Um I agree with 42x the more raw version was better but still this song still has all the "flavé" as the other one.
Reverb and Delay
experiment with more reverb and delay on your crashes. fills space like you wouldnt believe it. Gets a more proffesional sound.
What happened to the bass? I think the raw crunchy analog synth you used in the first version sounded better. It sounds more digital in this version. I agree with durn about the awkward octave change at 3 minutes. Overall, I think it sounds pretty good.
I like both basslines, just this one is a bit easier on the ears and speakers :P
The octave change only feels strange to you, because your not used to it yet :)
Thanks for the feedback :D
Nice blend of trance/electro/house, man! :) Had my head boppin and feet a-stompin.
Especially loved the saw bass, but that's cause I'm a sucker for the zipper basslines. :)
The rhodes-style piano at about 2 minutes was a nice touch, especially with the rolling you did with it (coupled with the rhythm synth in the bg).
However, at 3 minutes in it just goes wrong. :p no need to shift the notes up, sounds kinda awkward. maybe do the drop 8 bars earlier cause I didn't like the sound of the pitch-shift at all.
Though I looooooove the piano arpeggio and the kick drops at just the right time. However, the open hi-hat sample you use is too cliche. Used in almost every late 90s house tune.
All in all, a solid track with just a few minor problems :)
i know theres some stuff that still needs work, but thanks for all the positive feedback :D
I might work a bit more on this in the future, when i have fresh ears :P
