I'm an atmospheric sort of guy, so please listen to more than 30 seconds, it gets better, I promise. The bass was inspired by Rig's cardboard samples, but I made it in Sytrus...couldn't figure a way to get the tone right with the samples. Spent somewhere between 3 and 5 hours on this one. I dunno, I started on it a couple days ago and decided to come back to it now. Hope you like it, feel free to let me know what you think of it.

Far from empty

Another great sounding piece - a well composed beat and a lovely melody that runs along in the background. While I think that the melody could possibly use being a little louder in relation to the beat (possibly just make the beat slightly quieter, to aid the balance), it doesn't need a lot of change at all!

The track has a good level of variation and a cameo early on from the strings sets the tone for what is to come. A good modulation, changing the key up or down (I think down might suit better) towards the end would give the user something else to keep their ears overly satisfied.

A good track for Wipeout style racing games, if a little slow for that high end of the speed market, but still something I'd say worthy of considering.

I like this song, it creates a very nice atmosphere.
Also, don't try to play the intro down, it's awesome! ;)

What I like most is the background melody here. It has a very driving "feel", which sounds relaxing on the one hand but due to the "driving feel" it also seems to tell me to get my lazy ass up and get going. :)

Best of the bunch

Score: 9 / 10
Summary: Best of the bunch
Review: The bunch of songs that you requested, that is.

Really liked this one a lot. It gets repetitive, but I hear that's usual in Trance. I love the rhythms, and instruments/melodies, especially the strings, but everything gets repetitive after a while. Which I already mentioned.

Nice introduction. Good buildup, and the transitions are pretty good as well. Smooth.

All-round a really good track, that shoould have some more varied drums, and a little more varied melody.

Outro sounds outstanding, as well. Love that effect at the end. Makes my floor shake. =D

I like the slow introduction and then the build up that you used as it became quicker and quicker. Throughout the song itself it sounded pretty good. Perhaps a bit repetitive like usual, but not terrible.

I liked the little sound effect that you used at the end of the submission. Again, wouldn't mind hearing some of those faded out voices in this submission or even when it got a bit quiet there you could add something like a countdown for a rocket it whatever and when the countdown reached 0 it could be timed with the music picking back up.

Repetitive, but overall... :[]

Whoa... This song impressed me. Repetitive, as the ones under me said, but still... Wow...

That melody is just so catchy XD. I had one just like it stuck in my head strangely, but thankfully forgot it, and now you reminded me of it :(. Well, apart from that, the melody is unbeatable. Very repetitive, though, you need a few more melodies to it, like some with a piano as well, to vary from the arps. Good choice of instruments, and although you did use some presets, they were all really cool, and I won't brag that I don't use presets, beause I do too :[.

Transitions were done very well, and the song flowed smoothly throughout. The beginning was a little too quiet for my tastes though. I'd suggest a reverbed kick playing slowly in the background. The ending was very strange, too. It sounded like someone snoring, which felt really wierd after hearing a song as good as this.

Drums were very good. I liked those drum samples a lot, and they helped with the transitions perfectly. They varied quite a bit too, although for a song as long as this, varying the drums even more would help. Just don't make them sound random.

Overall, very good job. Very repetitive, and the intro and ending bothered me a little, but that melody is awesome, good instruments, great drum samples, so fantastic job on this XD! Oh, by the way, you typoed the name :P.
