I probably should've waited longer to release Dive because the mixing wasn't nearly as good as it could've been, which this shows. I've actually remastered this I think four times, but I left it alone for a couple weeks and just got back to it today. In that time I did a lot of work with Maximus in FL Studio, which basically every other mastering plugin in the DAW is based off of. It has the most helpful visuals and it enabled me to learn a lot more about stereo shaping, compressing and equalizing. However, Maximus was NOT used in this track, because I still have only the demo version and so it deletes itself whenever I reopen the project file. It was more work than it was worth to master the whole thing in one sitting with it because I am in fact timed while I work, as I used the demo version of Nexus for the main chorus-y pad and that goes out after like ten or fifteen minutes. But this still turned out fine, nothing but an EQ, light compressor and a limiter on the Master track. There are also a few new instruments in there that are very subtle in what I like to call the sub-background that add some nicer qualitites to the soundscape.

But above all, I hope you as the listener enjoy! Thank you for listening, and be sure to keep up with further updates!

This flows so nicely... it's very well done!

One of my favourite trance tracks.. keep it up man! both the beginning and the progression of the song are perfect!

i love your melody's and such.
sounds are good aswell. no clashing, distortion or whatever.
its fast. too fast imo. trance isnt this fast anymore you know.
unless where speaking of uplifting crap that is.
anyways. your kick lacks power.
and this daniel kandi-kinda string @ 04:14 is waaaay overpowered.
my rating might be a 3,5 but im voting 4
and if your score goes down a little bit, you know it was me. lol

I am diving into ecstasy

Perfect, flawless masterpiece.
You did a stupendous job!

Silta responds:

WOOP!! That's what I love to hear about my personal favorite composition of mine! :D I'm glad you think highly of it as well. I probably sound arrogant as hell but I do think this is my masterpiece so far. Your adjectives and nouns truly make my day. :)


almost reminds me of above and beyonds music

Silta responds:

I could not possibly think of a better compliment to receive. A&B are my idols! They're also the reason I'm into trance music. Thank you so much! :D Well them and Andy Blueman and Arctic Moon.
