I like your ambience
The ambience in this song is good man! I wanted to review the song you mailed but I guess you deleted it, so instead, I'll review this song ;) I love the mixture of ambient and trance :) The way you describe it really is true. I agree with MH16 about the drums and snare rols. I also agree that the bass line is too loud in the beginning. It sounds a bit crackly at some places, because of the bass, but it could be, if your speakers aren't that good, that they don't play the low tones, but I don't know...
I love the synth at 1:25 and also at 3:00. Good choices! The bass sounds also good.
overall: 5/5, 9/10, but the 9 is just for the few downsides of this song.
Review time! :D
Like Gravey1 said, the bass is too strong in the beginning. I did like the bass line in the beginning though.
I like that kick, but those snares sounds pretty standard. Also when that hi-hat (or ride) comes in, it's a bit too loud. Actually, it just doesn't fit there, so i would change that. In the rest of the song it isn't noticable though.
Also, that hi-hat at 03:03 sounds pretty standard. You really shouldn't use standard samples, because they sound... standard :P
Other than that, i can't think of any criticism.
Good job on the song!
I'm not going to rate this song, because it's a W.i.P. Let me know when the full song is online and i'll drop a five (if you made the song better of course :P)
I think i will change some things around. FL is screwing up for me, because there is so much going on in the song. I think the ride needs to be toned down a bit, you are right. The hi-hat at 3:03 isnt standard, but i think i will change it.
Thanks for the review!
the bass is WAY to prevalent in the beginning. It really overpowers the song completely, you should check on that.
When it all kicks in it the overall mix is pretty good. Except that it is lacking on the low end. You need something to add to the low end a tad. Just doesn't quite have the body I'm looking for in a song.
The instruments you chose really mesh well together. Everything has it's own place in the song, and really fits nicely in it's little niche. Although personally, I find trance music to be somewhat boring. Melodies are so generic and overdone. As well as beats and loops. But this isn't too bad.
I think you should really do something with the melody, or lack of one. I know that is typical trance style. But for me, I want to hear something melodic in my music. It is a big reason why I always say this is a programmer's dominated genre. You have to be more of a programmer than a musician to come up with trance music.
The harmonies are pretty decent in general. They add some color throughout the song. All in all this is well done for the type of sound you are going for.
4/5 and 7/10 overall. I personally can't give anything trance higher than an 8/10, no matter how good of a "song" it is. I require something a little more melodic and thought provoking for great scores. So it is nothing against your song here, but just the style in general of this type of music.
Best of luck in your future projects bud!
Hey thanks. I do understand, a lot can be done. It is a wip, hopefully i can make something more of it. Thanks so much for the in depth review :)
I really like it!
but i think its kinda more progressive house because it keeps the same melody and builds and realses but thats a good thing lol!
P.S. the ending isnt that bad but needs some work dont really like the fade out
It's only a wip :)
