yeah trance stuff heavy influence in piano

really nice kick if i might say so myself

i finally realised that if you gate your kicks, they come out much stronger, and especially if you distort them like i do alot of my kicks, they still come out clean

this kick isnt distorted though

any advice or comments would all be GREAT!!!



I really like this one. Hats show through, the closed ones start to get annoying. Some clipping, on piano. I like the lead, it could have used something more drawn out and not so fast, as it's meant to be beautiful with the singing angels thing. Thats what I got. I like the beat, kick, everything else.

i tried so hard to get rid of the piano clipping, but yeah i guess i there still might be some in there

sad face

anyways thanks for review

Got me bopping.

Also try compressing your kicks, it is just as good as gating. Another good method to use is to stack 3 different kicks together pan the lower freq one to the left the higher one to the right and the mid one keep in the middle, im sure you would love the phat bounce feel it creates. Not a bad song! Not really the style of trance i like but its well written for what it is!


SessileNomad responds:

yeah i compress the shit out of my kicks almost all the time(probly too much)

i also do stacking so i cna get wierd sounding kicks or really stong ones

ussualy i stack, and compress, but when i gate as well, it can cut out some of the distortion shit that happens as the kick is leaving, if i distort the kicks

lol i wouldnt really call it trance as much as happy hardcore, but we dont have a HH genre on NG

sad face

thx for review


how sad...

ah ah oou e a ah

lol i like

SessileNomad responds:

lol im sorry i made you sad...

Pretty good

Not the biggest fan on trance but liked this quite a bit. Really liked the melodies around it. Loved the hi hat work in the beginning. Not much interesting drum work in trance usually but this was an exception. Simple and sweet song. 5!

SessileNomad responds:

if your into drum work, i have like 4 DnB songs that have piano as lead(i luv piano)

well im glad you lied it enough to give 10 even though yor not into trance xD

The mastering is a bit weak.

I noticed that your track sounds very muddy. It sounds like you overdid it with the limiters. Learn how to compress each track individually (NEVER THE MASTER TRACK) and side chain your kick to your other synths.

Anyways, the song is fine, and I grooved along quite nicely to it. However, your percussion needs to stand out more (just a suggestion). The progression was nice and the synths were just fine.

7/10 for the review.
5/5 for the vote.

Keep it up and take my advice.

SessileNomad responds:

i dont like sidechaining synths to kicks, cuz i hate it when volumes drop and shit, i do with the basses somtimes

yeah i really do need to learn how to compress and master stuff properly

and i agree with my precussives on this one, really in all my songs my hats and shit dont really stand out very much

but yeah iv been looking into tuts on how to work all the mastering tools so hopefully ill get betteer at that crapp

peace and thx for review
