Searching for style
its clear that you are searching for your style. sadly it still got a long way to go. the bassdrum of hardstyle is more then only a distorted bassdrum. Like Theta4 notice, the timing is not correct, it has to *bounce* on the beat.
Its not easy to find the proper tools but in the forum Hardstyle is a well known subject so just try to find the proper persons, I uploaded a new hardstyle track yesterday, maybe you can get some inspiration from it ;).
Sounds great so far, smooth and simple, great quality, good intense beat. I'll be looking forward to the complete version of this, keep up the great work!
Based on the descripton, I give this a 6. If this was a song, I would have given lower, but that's just evil, considering it's a demo. Some tips:
* louder kick - hardstyle's all about the kick. add more bass to the kick (eq)
* the melody is... - the melody has weird timing. use either 16ths or 8th triplets.
* more melody - the melody's not...i dunno the word. i'm gonna say screaming. the melody doesn't scream enough. it sounds like some lowpass filter or something is on it. we need to hear those high tones! maybe add another octave above the main melody...yup.
too short for a demo song should have been at least 40 - 1m long but its still alright
