This is yet another one of my attempts to make music. I really like this one. It has a slight Japanese feel to it. Comment and rate. Leave me tips and things. Thanks.

Great start :D

And your right, definitely a Japanese feel to it, oriental at the very least.

Tips: I would suggest a baseline, and since it's trance a nice side-chain baseline always works best. This is where you have a 4/4 kick going and every off beat is a bass note ((usually I would use 3xOsc with a low octave and saw inserts, assuming you use FL Studio of course lol)) The off beat would then be ((in the pattern selector)) every third hit.

that's really the only thing missing :) Well, maybe a nice string pad or something, but thats extra ;)

Great job :D!


I think you could do much better with the drums.

Andreonh responds:

Yeah I am not very good at complex rhythms. I am trying though. Thanks for the review.


Oh I like this

My only suggestion would be make the drums a little more subtle. Don't just follow a straight forward beat. I think it may make for a much more ambient feel if you limit the amount of the kick you use here. Love the hi hat however and the melody is fantastic.

Andreonh responds:

Thanks! I tried making the drums a little more subtle and it worked a little. This is just me getting used to using FL Studio 8 XXL edition. I am still working on my basslines. Thanks for the review and the score it was really helpful.
