This is NOT a Real Rave [Demo]

Author Comments

Despite what you may think, this isn't a real rave.

Blah.. I'm not really happy, at all, with how this song turned out mixing wise. I'm trying to get better at mixing, mastering, ect. but it's not happening. Sometimes I get a good mix and sometimes I get shit. I'm definitely going to go back on this, because the full composition isn't even finished. I need to update my samples as well. Blah.. So much work to do. :/ Anyways, leave a review or don't, I don't care. :)



It was nice. It didn't feel too heavy and "EeeughIWantToEatYourEars" like many trance songs do, but it felt sort of relaxing and psychadelic. I liked what it did at 2:03 the most, until you brought in that cymbal or whatever it was at 2:17.

The end was pretty bad. I thought you could have done something more than just a cymbal crash to end.

The cymbal at the end was a ride. :) It was combination of playing off the bell loudly and tapping on the edge of the cymbal. :)

That's not going to be the actual ending. Like the title of the song suggest, this is just a demo. :) Thanks for the review.

A bit of static

A shame, because there is the eminence of static within the tune start, but it does get masked quite well behind the melody. Perhaps just mess with the equalisation of the bass ever so slightly and go from there.

A good melody and some good little sub-beats from the drum snares and the chimes. I can understand that it's not a rave, as it's far too quiet for one and perhaps even too slow for a rave tune.

If it's going to be a rave tune, perhaps consider making it longer and having something like a short bass solo, which is some of the shenannigans they tend to like in Rave circles ;)

I noticed that right afte uploading and listening to it more, I think it has to do with the frequencies mashing together during the low pass in the beginning.

My intention was to make a trancy song that was like a rave, but not really. :)

Sounds good

Strange. You say you are not happy with this track, yet you have a 9/10 review score after 4 reviews. So, I guess this track can't be that bad after all. ;)

I like the intro. Sounds pretty muffeled at first but gets clearer and clearer with every second until we are in the "main part" of the song.

And here it starts where I can hear why you aren't happy with the mixing. The sounds outpower each other here and a real structure is missing here.

However, the song gets a lot better again when you put in some various parts where you break up the main beat and bring some other beats in.

LightKeeper responds:

I'm not happy with the mixing on this track. The actual composition I'm actually happy with. The intro works out pretty well, but it's the rest of the song onward that concerns me because it has potential to be brought out so much better. The structure gets covered up by some poor mixing. Glad you were able to still enjoy it though. :)

Sounded good

Good job with this one mate, really did sound good. Though I really loved the beat, which was very well played, strong and yet didnt overtake the melody, it was stable and strong, which is very dynamic for a Trance song, good job with that.

Though if there was one thing that I didnt like about the song, it would be, like you said, the mixing, it sounded kind of sloppy on my end, not to bad or noticable but in some parts I heard some sloppy mixing, but nothing to major.

Other than that everything else sounded great, the melody was good, very catchy and ear-pleasing, good job with it.

Good job here man, 5/5 from me, keep up the good work! :)

LightKeeper responds:

Thanks man, I'm looking to go back on this and touch up the mixing, especially to on the drums and to get a clearer sound all around. I was happy about the composition of this piece, but that's not everything. :P


For some reason this really reminds me of my early FL songs
The drums sound a bit raw though, you should compress them and stuff

LightKeeper responds:

Thanks for the advice. I noticed that too, especially on the open hats. I've been trying to get a better sound from my drums, maybe it's because I'm missin the compression. Again, thanks.
