New approach, Hardstyle (Read Edit). But...in a Writer's Block, your songs aren't as good as usual. :S

I hope you still like it nevertheless. :D

Review! ^.^

EDIT: Would you please vote the track? I've noticed some people made me lose points because it's 'not really Hardstyle'. VOTE FOR THE TRACK, NOT THE GENRE. *facepalm*

EDIT2: Added more reverb to melodies, compressed kicks, used Fruity Limiter.
End Result: Better than before.

EDIT3: Removed Fruity Limiter, fixed one melody.

I hope you didn't use Fruity Limiter in the Master Channel, that's a no no.

You're better off using Maximus, but don't use any of the presets. It'll take a while to figure out a good combination of settings, but it really boosts the overall mix if used correctly.

1:55 sounds really weird to me. Out of place even. The song is too busy at this point.

At 2:56, the lead moves around too much, and goes into the highs a fair bit, hurting my ears. The kick is also too loud at this point, it's starting to distort.

You also told me you use samples, and I've said before, your better off learning some VSTi's, and just use VEC samples for rhythm/FX/etc. Synth samples are not only unoriginal, but not very useful either.

Overall, the mix is quite poor, there's a fair bit of bass distortion with the kick and bass. That may be caused by Limiter, I can't tell though.

Keep at it man, this song has potential, as B0UNC3 said.

DJ-Galax responds:

Did you read the EDIT3? Next time do that plzkthxbai.

Yes, you've told me to use VSTi's.

I should create a better second lead XD.

1:55: I actually think it sounds good. :(

But thanks for the review! :D

Has potential

But I think you have to use alot more fx and even out the volumes in the song. a couple of bangs etc are very loud compared to the rest.

The melody sounded abit dry, but as I said on AIM, add some reverb to it.
I'm sure this will turn out to be awesome if you fix that :)

DJ-Galax responds:

Thanks! I'll try and fix stuff you mentioned.

EDIT: Fixed. :P


sounds somewhat semi-hardstyle to me but still good

DJ-Galax responds:

Well still thanks!

Not too bad

It was a nice track but the Kick wasn't hardstyle...You need a really hard hitting bass kick. Maybe if you had have put that kick but a hard kick behind it then it owuld have worked better but yeh, other than that, melody was nice, voice was pretty good. Nice work.

DJ-Galax responds:

Well, thanks! I wasn't too sure what kind of kick to use, I thought this one was fine.

But still thanks for taking the time to write a review! ^.^
