Day of Trance is a series of short sessions I have in FL Studio, whether it's because I'm bored or just want to practice. Also, this is my first time using FL Studio 8 (I just got it ^ ^).


Not too bad, but not the best.

The impression that I got from this submission was that you were just practicing with a new program and having fun making a new submission. I can tell that because it's really generic meaning it sounds like most other submissions of this genre.

The build up effect wasn't too bad. It seems like almost everyone uses the build up effect in their songs anymore. It's still something that should be used in a lot of songs though in my opinion.

The overall sound of the submission was very repetitive. Working on some sound effects or different things to add variety would probably really help the submission out.

The sound that you introduced somewhere around 17 or 18 seconds into the song was very interesting though. I really liked the sound and it gave it almost a dreamy feel. Something that seems to me doesn't really fit the rest of the song too well, but should definitely be put in a different song sometime if you can get it to work.

Thanks for the review, yeah, I was mostly just seeing what this version had to offer and just threw this together.

Not catchy enough.

It started quite well, with the heavy drum making an impressive entrance, but, from then on, it just all went downhill.

You introduced the instruments very methodically, which is a common thing to do. just a few bars with one instrument, then bring in the next one, then add the next one, etc. etc. Try to come up with new ways to bring in your instruments.

Your main instrument (whatever it was) felt out of place. It didn't really seem to have a purpose, meaning that the song felt boring and kinda pointless. It would have been fine if you had used that in the background, but had a keyboard or something to keep it going along smoothly.

Anyway, it's a good start, but it can be improved on.
