Ok. Well here's another song ive been working on. Its slower, its melodic, its quite ambient, but ive hit a massive writers block on this song.
Ive worked on this like for about 1 week solid or so..
But i havent made much progress at all...
Any help or suggestions or criticism would be much appreciated!!!
Need alot of help on this one...:S


oooo not realy shure what to think

i like it never the less but prefur most of your others

DjXeon responds:

You know, tweak the style, twist it up, mess around, and see what comes up :D
lol, me too! Ive gotten no-where on this, ill prob scrap it

Some tips

pretty nice & clean track u have already, but here are some tips to improve it:

1. The clap: not sure, but i think you used just 1 (VEC?) sample.
Here's a common method: Layer 2 or 3 clap samples, and give them their own volume. Add EQ & reverb on the result to get better & more unique claps.

2. The kick: it's good, i dunno if u did so but with kicks, its common to layer some samples, again, to get a better, a less recongnizable and more unique kick.

3. Add some bass, i can't hear any. When you do add an instrument that does the bass notes, try not using only offbeat bassnotes, thats very common and unoriginal for a trance track

4. Presets leads? Not sure if u used much presets, but in case u did, try modding & layering them to make them better. 3xosc also works :)

For a longer explanation, http://karcoreviewalt.newgrounds.com is your guide :)

Hope this was helpful ^-^

DjXeon responds:

Thanks a million!
All of those techniques, are mostly new stuff i havent heard before!
I will definately take this into account! Thank you very much for the review and the advice!
It definately has helped.
Much appreciated!!


I agree with darthmarus on the guitar. I think the guitar is too soft and smooth.
Apart from the guitar, everything is great, except that it needs some bass.
And if you really don't know what to do with this song, just leave it for what it is and try to make it better after a couple of months.
Hope i helped.

DjXeon responds:

You thinks? Ok well thanks i will fix my guitar problem and leave it, and come back and work on it laters! Yeah, i need a bass.
Thanks for the review!!


This is very good, to start out with, your melody carries quite well and the chords you use to back it up do the job wonderfully. If you wanted to add something I would think about some bass, the high end of it is equalized well but there is nothing in the low really. That might open up a new part of the song for you.

Peace - //:-sr4clD-:\\

DjXeon responds:

But yeah... Thats the hardest part lol - the bass.
Ive tried re-working and doing it over again many times.. and i just doesnt fit lol
I know it needs a bass, just getting something that sounds good is hard.
Thanks for the review!

i like it but hate the guitar

just use a different instrument and i would say 10/10

i just hate the guitar, not sure why, because everything else is perfect.

DjXeon responds:

Hmmm i shall try changing it and see!
Thanks! Will take that on board!
