newgrounds will make a space in the link.. remove it to make it work.

Eventually this track went even bigger than Trinity Force.
My laptop had to load a huge amount of RAM everytime I opened the project.
My laptop literally nearly died of obese 0_o
Nevertheless the song came out pretty well.
I created a lot of customary and original synths.
For example the weird japanese double guitar thingy at the start of the buildup 2 climax.

Well, in general I am really happy with the outcome.
It has become a very original track.
Also, when listening I hear from many who have listened this that it feels like a journey you are following when listening this. This probably means this song is everything but repetitive.
I also spent nearly the double of the time I spent at Trinity Force.

Well, have fun listening (if you haven't already), and please do not forget to vote AND review ^^
I luv reviews, <3 and i will always answer them, no matter the amount.
Already got a third track coming, watch the WiP's i post.

To be honest, I'm giving you the 7/10 because I realize you've put a ton of work into this track. I've been there, I definitely know how it feels to put a lot of work into one song (look at one of my super old songs called "The Adventure" if you want to know exactly which one I'm talking about - irrelevant to this review).

I see you've put time into EQ and the like, but it seems like you didn't do it the right way. There's easily a wrong way to EQ a song, and you certainly wasn't told by anyone that "helped" you along the way of making this. 84 hours is quite a bit for one track, I really hope most of it was just you leaving the computer idle with FL open...

Ok, some of the things you can look at for your next track:

- Your percussion here is too heavy. When I say that I mean your hi hats, claps, other random percussion instruments (that you loop).

- The sound is too cluttered. I had this problem myself, it's normal. But this is something you need to really work on if you want people to really appreciate your song ideas (like melody and song progression). If there's a poor to mediocre presentation, your idea, even if it's amazing, will be shot down most likely by listeners.

- Like Tuscanic, your high-end EQ is way too high. He said "a bit", but I want to emphasize this point. It's WAY TOO HIGH. You never want to put too much into something, which leads to this pretty simple and easy phrase to remember:

"Less is more."

Apply that to your volume levels, EQing and song structure (so not as many things are playing, clears up the sound).

Last, but not least: there really isn't a clear melody in this track. It's like you're holding back on us with the main point of the song. There's buildup, foundation and progression but nothing to really make the deal with my ears. Yes, there's a melody but is being taken away by everything else you've put into the song. Bring out the melody by bringing down whatever else is getting in the way. This might be yet another EQ issue but it's already said and done.

At this point I urge you to work on a new track. Let this one be and take it as a great stepping stone in your production. From here you can only go up and learn more.

Oh, and good luck. ;)

I doubt if i've ever had a better review on one of my songs. Thank you so much !!, Everything you have told me completely makes sense to me. I really didn't hear it at all, and this might be the case because of my speakers which i had on with a big subwoofer increasing the bass like a madman. Yet, my 3th track has been made by me with an Ultrasone DJ1 Pro headset that devotes into giving sound as clear and natural as possible. So with my new song (which i also uploaded already) PotencY - Thunder Decade these high EQ and heavy percussion issues should be gone now.

For I doubt it is a matter of inexperience into EQ'ing. (since i alreaady got so much criticm for it). You urged me to make a new track, I urge you to come vote and review it haha !

You might want to give that a listen and perhaps placing one of these magnificient reviews if you wouldn't mind.

Thanks again,
Take Care,

Not bad.

This is certainly one of the better Trance songs on here. It has a great euphoric atmosphere, and it has a good melody.

On the other hand, you should have lowered the high end EQ a bit to bring out the percussion. The bass was difficult to hear from all that reverb too. Next time, keep a look out on your effects. You don't want to use them a whole lot.

Overall, I enjoyed this song quite a lot. It reminded me of Airbase's old sound. Good job.

Mea-Anima responds:

Thanks Tuscanic for the constructive review.
You really are right about the EQ'ing.
I wanted to give it much power so I raised the high and mid ends on the EQ,
But now that you mention it, i might have overdone it a bit haha.

thanks again,


thats how song should look like. 10/10 and 5/5 for me and keep it up :) Also be sure to upload it to youtube.

Mea-Anima responds:

Thanks for the review Norato =D

hmm I probably leave that to other people who want to place it on youtube.
I've seen 3 / 4 different people who uploaded Trinity Force to youtube.
If I place this song myself it might discourage people.
Besides, im infamous on youtube anyway haha.
