Hard melodic trance. Fat bass, a break, and a shred build. Not nearly done, but plz rate.



This song is awsome!!!!


hey man this is ur like best 1

but, its not perfect, could be a bit longer, and maybe like make a chorus line, and reapeat it sometimes, Great song man.

Dance Club Material.

I myself being a song writer/producer/sequencer, I can tell just by the sound that you put a lot into this. If I were you, I'd be proud. I can say by experience that you are a very talented and skilled Musician. Keep it up, and don't get discouraged by blamming assholes!

totally unorginal, but well made

yea, not my kind of trance, way too cheesy and commercial, someone mentioned before about the old skool rave synths, but all I hear are those god damn annoying super saw synths, and a cool acidy line in the back. If I were you I would have expanded on the acid part and left that overdone anthem part alone, cuz damn, how many trance songs nowadays do that sht? It's what's slowly destroying trance...or turning it into some bad pop stuff. Just my two cents, but yea production is good (that is if what I'm hearing isn't just pre-made loops) and you lay down the acidy vibe well at the start, two bad it fades away.

DJ-Ultimus responds:

Thanks for the honest review. Yes, I was going for that mainstream feel for this one - and if this is the impression that this track conveys, I guess I have succeeded in that aspect; although I can certainly understand when you say that it sounds "cheesy and commercial", and perhaps uninspired. I fully agree.

In the final version (which I can't seem to get quite right, but anyhoo), yes, the acid mashup from the beginning is extended and revamped for a fuller introduction, and the shred saws are backed up by other synths to give them a more interesting and fresh feel, which I agree, is needed.

However, I believe that shreds (supersaws) are simply an artifact of trance, in the same way that guitars are an artifact of metal, and I just don't think that trance can be trance without including them in some form or another. But yes, I know what you mean when you say that it's by no means original, but then again, with the rise of the internet and and sites such as NG which are breeding grounds for aspiring amateur artists such as myself, the term "original trance" is paradoxical in itself.

Anyways, I can assure you that I use no prefabricated loops of any kind in any of my tracks. I make it a point to use only synths that I create on my own, both to avoid copyright infringement, and simply because I feel that it gives me more control over having the track sound as I want it to.

In conclusion, I would once again like to thank you for your review, and I hope that you fins my future work more original and inspired.

I agree

I do agree with the chirping pads. They are used to a point where I do want to hear the other pads and synths, but I still loved it.
This si great, and hopefully you can conjure up another specimen for us fans of yours.
