So this is the kinda stuff i have been wanting to make since i started making music. True trance. Unfortunately, there isn't much in this song that is custom made. To say the least, the kick started out as the "Big Layer" preset in Sytrus and i got it to what it is. The main arp is the "Commersial Filter" preset from z3ta+ and was the inspiration for the whole song. Tell me what you think of it. Your reviews will be read so say what is needed.

It is interesting for sure. It could really use more layers though, at least that is what I garner from a couple of times listening through this. Right now it just sounds like a sort of gated trance lead with a filter effect making it sound as though it is going in and out of it's natural sound.

I like the kick/bass you used. It has a very deep and rich sound which helps to fill up space. I'm not sure if it is a simple kick or a bass. In the beginning it sounds quite a bit like a kick, but towards then end when it comes out in the song more it sounds more like a bass playing the same note over and over. Either way it sounds good in the full mix.

This needs some real percussion in it. I don't mean like a trap set or anything like that. But some sort of percussive hit would be nice to go along with the straight downbeat thump you have going on. Right now there just isn't much going on and I think that should be remedied.

There is a second sort of beeping synth I heard in the last halfish of the song. I'm not sure whether I liked it or not, but it is there and is worth mentioning. I think I would like it more if there were more layers to distract me from it a bit more. Right now it just seems like there is only three layers to the entire song, the lead synth, the beeping synth, and the bass/kick.

3/5 and 7/10 overall.This needs more layers, a lot more. That is the best advice I could give for it right now.

First off, thank you for the review.
Second, as you should know, I have no good percussion in my possession :-/. If I did, I would definitely add some more to it.
If you feel like helping out, you are more than welcome to send me some samples or something.
