When this song evolved from ponyta was it originally 200 bpm? Lame joke aside, cool song. I love this kind of trance. It takes me back to when I first started listening to electronic music. Most of it came from newgrounds. Let me get you aquanted with one of my favorite guys here on ng...
There might be a space in that link you have to remove. Rawrthaas has a swell library of different electronic sounds. You'd probably like his work.
Now to try and be helpful. I'm not sure what program your using so I can't be too in depth in terms of how to do this but I'd recommend fattening up that drum kit and giving it more emphasis in the mix. You can make drums sound wider by layering different drum pieces. Find a few snares that each hit different areas of the sound spectrum. Get some mids, some highs and some lows all in one sweep and balance them. Layering can take a while to get a hold of so play around with it. One thing that can help when your layering sounds is to pan things up a bit. Panning gives the illusion that things are louder than they actually are, so when you pan you can turn the levels down on everything a little to give you more room to boost what you want.
One thing I really love about this song is how it loops. The melody the song starts with is something I'd expect to hear in a second measure in response to an initial melody. When the track looped it was almost as if the end was just a slight rest to create and resolve tension. The tempo stayed in time too. Funny mistake :P
All said, great song mister! Keep at it and you'll be great.
Thanks, that was the best review I have ever received.
I use FL studio as my main DAW and a few others occasionally.
I checked out the song you sent its really cool : )
I will try out the advice you gave thanks : )
P.s. yes it was 200bpm when it was ponyta
