Hey everyone,

This is a small trance song I've been working on for a while now. It's still a WIP, and I'm looking for some feedback/comments because I've sort of hit a writers block. Please review so I can finish!



Very nice.

I only give my full vote to songs I download and congrats you passed. Wouldn't be surprised if someone used it for a beat against a boss in a flash game. Talk to the guy who makes the Epic Battle Fantasy series (Matt-like-swords) you may just get this put in there, since this seems like his style of music he's used on his games.

Cool, will do

If you have money...

go out and get a Korg Kaossilator. they are amazing for ideas. Anyway, iy was pretty good. I liked it, but it seemed a bit light on the percussion.

DjDub-E responds:

I just got myself a Kaossilator. I can't put it down, thanks for the tip


I to agree with Burn7, But the melody tht starts around 1:30 u need to slow it down and make it alittle harder, its got the potential to be a hardstyle track

Ive never done hardstyle, interesting thought.

Very nice.

So far, I think this is way cool. I don't really listen to trance as much anymore, but I used to a whole lot. And if I had this song back then I would most definitely have listened to it until I got tired of having it stuck in my head.


At 1:56 you need a crash cymbal to indicate the beginning of the full entrance of the lead. Crash cymbals really make a big difference.

Maybe after the one lead dies off at 2:40, you could keep the bassline and other synths still there and the kick continuing, and expand upon the melody introduced at 1:18. Then bring back the lead that dropped off, and just keep it up.

Also, try and add some occasional variety in there. Either with the beat, or with the lead. Because, to me at least, it really shows that the mixer cares about keeping their audience interested.

Right now that's all I've got. I know how frustrating writer's/musician's block can be, and I'm pretty sure you'll work through it.
