Made with Fruity Loops, Vangurad, Nexus, 3xosc, and Audacity.

4.5 hours straight to make it.
It's pretty shitty.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Needs workz

Right at the intro, I felt the lead was really muddy. Perhaps cut down the low frequencies in the lead, and ditch the compressor. May need to experiment to find the right balance.

The off-beat bass that comes in is quite....low, in a bad way, it loses it's power. It just sounds like grain it's so low. Maybe mix it up with some higher octaves to give it more depth, and lower the really low octave volume.

The clap/snare I realized is on beat 1 and 3, which is different, but at the same time jubbles up the feeling, since the majority of rhythms in trance/dance has the clap on beat 2 and 4. In any case, I'd also consider this song to be more of a dance tune than a trance tune.

The transition with the off-beat kick was a bit confusing, since we think of the kick as on the beat. Interesting nonetheless.

The vox is cool, but at some points it becomes hard to understand/hear, since some of the other surround sounds are much higher in volume

A note: Never have a fade-out outro, everrrrr. I understand if you are a little pensive about making an actual outro, but a fade out just doesn't make the song feel complete.

What do you put in the master channel? If it's the default Limiter, ditch that, it's for the best. Also, under program settings (options) turn off CPL, you'll get a more full sound, you may need to fix your levels though.

In the end, I really really see potential in this, and I don't want to see this stay like thissss. If possible, work on the few things I've mentioned, fix levels, etc.


Keep at it, I'm sure you'll be able to improve in your technique and begin creating the music you aspire to. :]

Thanks heaps for the in depth review dude.

I agree with you, there's a lot wrong with it, it was my second full song (1st musically correct song), and there's a lot that shout be fixed.

That being said though, I couldn't really be bothered to go back and fix things, and I think I deleted the project file too.
Thanks for all the kind tips :D

not really

i dont see how it is shitty hehe; i like it okay

ViceOfFire responds:

cheers, i appreciate it (:
i think it's shitty because it's only my 2nd proper song, and pales in comparison to the work I aspire to create.
