You Sir Are Number 1
but srsly look score rank #1 really nice!
This is a new level in your music. You leveled-up. :D
While this kicks the shit out of my song and laughs in its face, I have to comment on near total lack of low-end on almost the entire song. You've done insane kicks in the past, so this seems to be deliberate, but I question if it was necessarily a good idea.
The build-up here is the most insane thing I have ever heard, but I feel like the song should have had a bigger punch right afterwards. This is really just the song being victim to its own awesomeness, since the build-up is just *that good*. I am going to steal your build-up idea for my own song >D
My favorite part is the primary melody work with the synth in the middle of the song, which is just astounding. The entire song has an incredible atmosphere that few trance songs manage to capture. Your melodies are simply pure elegance captured in harmony.
You have no low end
First off, sweet builds.
As for the rest of the song, well.. the arrangement is fine but the mix is less then desirable. The kick has no low end and the rest of the song seemingly has very little. Sure we can hear your kick, it has nice punch but the overall boom is not there. If you can't feel the kick then whats the point of being able to hear it.
The mix is just as important as the arrangement of the song. The whole thing seems like it has a filter on the master bus. Your Saw synth that is partially filtered sounds dirty because of reverb. Thankfully you didn't over use reverb on your drums.
So maybe to solve some of your low end problems do some layering with a sub bass and a sub kick. The low end is a tricky thing but if you get it even remotely close to sounding decent you'll have a whole new song with more power.
Great stuff as always!
Great loops, great build ups
I kind of agree with most of what EssenceofTrance said tho
The build up at 2:20 is cut and all goes mute in a weird way for me
As I don't know what goes into making a song, and just from the view point of an avid listener of the genre I think the song is really just great
That is my constructive criticism, not because i dont like the song (cuz I do), but I want you to get 'er done!!
Well it is done but, you know what I mean man!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
