This is a progressive trance piece - which I took quite a while mixing up. And sadly - this is not the original ( the original sounded soo much better ) , I had to fix it. But still, I think you guys will like this - [ as much as I do ].
I tried to it make as Prof , as I could - however I know It still needs some "cleaning" . But remember it sounds better with earphones.

I'm using your reviewing system that you described on your page. And as such, 3.5 stars. I don't mean to put the track down as I feel it has immense potential, but as someone who goes to clubs frequently and knows what gets the crowd moving, the opening to the track seemed.... Muddy. By that I mean I felt as though the trance pluck and stabs were not complimenting eachother, and I don't mean the synths but the notes themselves.

Now I've heard Armin Van Buuren use a very similar stab to the one you used here to great success, but it wasn't used throughout the whole song, it was used as a buildup during transitions. I believe the track was in ASOT 2006 or 2007. Worth looking up for reference.

A pad complimenting the baseline here would have smoothed out the buildup in some areas and created more synergy throughout the track.

And as previously stated there were one or two areas where the transitions stumbled badly. In fact if I were dancing at the club I woulda assumed the dj screwed up and gone ,"come on bro!!".

Do not be discouraged though, I see where this track is going and I feel it has immense potential. Just gotta smooth out the rough edges a bit. I wanna see a MK.2 of this track!

Hmm my methods works - more reviews! The opening track was super muddy - ur right about that. And ill admit the piece - was done a bit ruff could have gottten a little more mastering. I think a pad complimenting the bassline would be good - I think ill try that one. And really after the fact that I uploaded this - I felt some time mix ups - but decided to let'em be and move on - but Im likin ur advice and suggestions def goin to make some strives to get some more traks goin - thanx destroyerrrr.

The waves in the background near the end make the whole song sound off.

Pulsar013 responds:

Oh you mean the sweeps? - thanx I'll see if I can clean up those "swooshes", but really their supposed to be side chained sweeps.

1) I must say I like the drops in intro, even the one with the lead
2) raise volume of your clap for jeasus crist :D really hard to heard it
3) around 2::30 ( fade out ) the ,,hall kick,, is placed kinda wrong and dont much fit with fade out.
4) 4:00 that cymbal roll or what the hell it is, is really and i mean REALLY loud
5) after 4:00 is the beat TOTTALY fu*cked up, it sound like amater trying to mix the song with another one thanks to crossfader to be honest :D really try to fix it becouse it ruined this great song.

At the end I want to say that I like it and I did not expect that quality from someone who said my compresed and EQ remastered kick in not laud enought when it is even louder then lead :D

good job and FIX THAT BEAT AFTER 4:00 ok ? :D

Pulsar013 responds:

thanx for the review - as of now I am actually fixing it - the beat after 4:00 is very screwed I agree - because I put the pluck at the wrong time. And as I noted - its not the original - where u could hear claps a little louder. ( I had to fix the sweep - re-sidechain it and everything.) Never underestimate the power of a sweep!, it totally changed everything.
