I'm thinking this will be the first of several sections to one song. I'm not entirely sure where to go with it from here - but I hope I can continue to improve it. I'd love to receive as much criticism as you have, so throw it at me! Also... what genre is this? Trance? I'm so lost on genres. :L

Hopefully I can make this decent enough for all of you to enjoy. Thanks a ton for listening!

this song might have been kinda short, but i don't mind.
under me someone said it sounded liek resident evil, the beginning made me immediately think of castlevania XD
anyway,this was nice to listen to, i'm downloading it :)


Very nice sounding piece. Kind of makes me think of Resident Evil for some reason too. The song itself has a good flow to it that would make for a nice level song to get people warmed up for the later levels as they keep going deeper and deeper into the cave to find answers of some sort.

The aquatic sounding synth was actually pretty cool since it has a slight echo effect making me think of water. The drums are nice and the added claps make it all the more better on the ears too. The bass is light and has a funky feel to it that makes you feel all better too. The song is very nice too, looking forward to the final piece.

Overall, too short, needs to be longer. :P

This song has a very nice-trancy flow to it, and I really love the drum sounds that you've chosen here!

The leads sound okay, but I think that they might be a bit repetitive; The delay effect that you used sounds kinda weird, and the way that your leads cut away from the mix at a couple points kinda bugged me.

I don't hate this song
I don't love this song

I'm honestly stuck on the fence here; I like your mixing and drums, bit the leads effects could use work

Not bad, not great
But a solid effort!

Nice work

Awesome mixing, I agree with the last review, that bass is sexy. I'd say take out that section with no drums and have a build-up to a drop- where you bring in an epic detuned-saw trance lead. and give the high/mids on the bass some more distortion after the drop to make it real powerful.

That's just what I think would be cool after this anyway. Good luck with it!

You're onto something here

I know it's just a work in progress, but I'm still miffed that it abruptly ended at 44 seconds in, just when it was about to get good. When there was only TONS of possibilities for it to grow. I'd like to see how a full-fledged Trance track like this will turn out. That bass sounded great, but you know the full track will need more.

If it were me, I'd find a sexy british woman to sing about something eventually :P hope you have a more fitting, trance-like ending prepared for the final product. Voted 4, you'll have a 5 from me waiting for the full track. I like what little I've heard, give us more!

Jacob responds:

I do hate that it's so short at the moment. See, I'm debating on how many parts to make this in. I may just continue from where I left this off, beginning a much larger buildup into a much more powerful climax. But, I might also extend the bit where the bass came in. Decisions, decisions...
This is why I have all of you. :L
Thanks for the review!

EDIT: Come to think of it, it's actually sort of flattering to know that you were a bit annoyed by the abrupt ending - it shows that it left you wanting more. This could be incentive enough for me to finish it, for sure.
