Not bad

A really good progressive trance track. Sadly, NG can't make genres for every subgenre there is, that would possibly make the submitting system a bit too messy.

There's a nice flow to the track, a very steady beat throughout, and the synths are of good quality, with a good melody.

Main issue for me is the lack of variation in the rhythmics. It's basically the same throughout, and in general the track does feel a bit shallow. i honestly think this would do very good as the intro to a longer track, but as a standalone track, it's somewhat lacking, IMO.

Greatly done

Well I found this quite awesome and enjoyable I think. The tune just lulls and relaxes you into a safe feeling world of just whatever your imagination spawns before you. Would also make for a nice video game piece I think anyways. Sounds good though so very nice work here the full way.

The synth sounds cheery and really up as well so I like how that works as it stays up and bouncy. The bass is soothing and wet feeling here and it plays you into a more subtle feeling world. The drums sound real calm and just very well done on this piece I think so I do like that.

Overall, very relaxing piece of work I think.

We also need Progressive Trance/ House Categories!

I completely agree with you bud; newgrounds needs a lot of new categories for the audio portal :p

This is really good!

I really enjoyed the driving drums and bass-line. The leads and echo effects all sound very entrancing; you've done well capturing the general Phy-trance feel.
One biggggg plus for me with this track was the mastering, your lows and highs sound very nicely balanced.

Couple friendly suggestions though.
for trance music maybe you should focus more on adding background noise to fill the emptiness; some subtle voices or layered soft-sounding pads with a side-chain effect added over them could do this track some good.

This is so close to sounding perfectly professional its ridiculous!
Just a few more things buddy!
Imo anyway... lol

Great Work!

It's very slow paced and feel like it wants to build up but it never quite does. The beats are consistent and okay but it never dares to be different and plays it safe the whole time.There isn't much to say since there isn't much here. Overcome you barrier of under confidence, I want to see the best you can do.
