Another track after a long time.... I've not been posting music that often nowadays. =/
I really got to practice my mixing skills.

One rather progressive trance song. Hope you do enjoy this. =D

Edit: 3/24/11 Edited this to balance out the bass... hope it's better.

Keep them coming, please...

For the sake of my conscious-ness when I'm doing my coursework. Really helps me to stay awake when I listen to new songs. Keep them coming, I'm dying from stress overload.

Anyways, honestly, I couldn't say it was one of your best songs. One of the parts reminded me of another of your earlier songs, and to me, it was considerably repetitive. Also I didn't really get to grab onto a good hearing of the real tune. But heck, I can't offend you too much, though my honesty overcomes everything.

Meh, a 7, since I didn't really like this, from my personal opinion. Hope you keep the good songs coming.
P.S. I should stop writing reviews in school, like what I'm currently doing.

I gotta say, I think when you said that different parts sound similar, you're right. I think I used that breakdown sequence before, but can't really remember.
This song was meant to be progressive, not melodic, so I understand if you don't really like it. Most people look for catchy melodies; I look for neat progressions. And maybe I should try and make something melodic next time. Melodies are hard to come by.

That's the problem with making music. One has to cater to different tastes. To do that, it's hard.

Wait... What are you doing at school at 6pm?

Really nice here.

As always, I love your creativity. I loved the arp around 1:50, and the lead sound that comes in at 2:44. (That's a processed piano right?). The melodies are just great. I"m not sure, but it sounds like you've been experimenting with sytrus.

Anyways, here are some tips.

The bass is really rich sounding, however, the percussion doesn't do it justice. The kick is a bit hollow sounding. In my opinion, I would opt for a more deep sounding kick that has large decay in the low end. The high hats are fitting, but the clap doesn't quite fit with the high hats. Since the high hats are in the 5k+ frequencies, I would use a clap that contained those frequencies, and then cut out the lower frequencies and add some high reverb to it.

Either that, or keep all the percussion, but change the high hats to make them fit with the kick and clap (which do actually fit together).

Oh, and another thought: sidechaining. It would sound really good with this bass and make the track have a more bouncy feel, which I feel would be appropriate.
Overall, nice job, and huge improvement. Looking to see what you do next.


TeHLoY responds:

Thanks for yet another really constructive review. =D

I think it's time for me to download more sample packs. Mine is way too small. =/
You're right, a more "trancier' kick would be better, I tend to choose kicks that sound more natural than electronic.

So the claps and hi-hats don't agree? I had this feeling that it did sound weird together, and you're right.

I do feel that the bass does take away from the kick, maybe they play too close together. I don't know why, but I tend to notice these stuff after I finish them. Really annoying.

Once again, thank you for this really constructive review. I simply love the tips you give, they help a lot.

Oh, and the synth at 2:44 is a heavily EQed saw pluck. Sounds like a piano, doesn't it? =D

This is great!

You're certainly getting better :D
There is an improvement on the mixing compared to your older songs.
I've noticed that you added more effects to make it sound better
and I like the chord progression as well.
Flows smoothly, very well done :D

TeHLoY responds:

Yep. Thanks!
My older songs definitely sucked. =/

Very solid work

I have no complaints....enjoyable song.

TeHLoY responds:

Uh... Thanks. =)
