First submission here!

You must know that I did NO MASTERING/LITTLE MIXING AND EQ. Please, do not hit too hard :P

That said, it is recomended to be reasonnable on the volume (else you'll go deaf, NOT A CHALENGE!)

Not sure for the genre, anyone help???

This sounds really good without mastering your EQ, but why are you so averse to doing it? Dude, some of your other pieces that were mastered sounded incredible. I downloaded them and I'm able to play them on any system. I would love to hear this piece fully rendered.

TheZaaL responds:

Indeed, it would be interesting to hear it full quality :P It's on my todo list, but I'll rack up some more skills before revisiting it.

For my actual sound quality, it's okay. But if you add any standard EQ to it (like windows media player's dance preset EQ), It becomes muddy. Working on it!!

Thanks for your review-rush, I greatly appreciated!!!

I think its more of an ambient track because you used pretty dominant pads. But i like it! maybe its a bit too repetitive, so tweak a couple of knobs and automate it so its different a bit, but the loop sounds really sweet! if you added more bass to the kick drum and cut off the low ends on everything else it would have a bouncier feel, but overall i think its a pretty dank facking piece dude. really catchy
Keep up the good work

TheZaaL responds:

WTH!! Another review!! Thanks, man!

Yeah, I'm actually (re)working on it, it will be much more clear, plus some other candies!!

Getting the kick bouncier is a great idea! I will just change the whole kick!

I would say for the genre it fits more of "techno", trance has lots of pads high synth parts and light percussive elements.

The introduction was very nice, the kick was some what plain though, the over all melody though sounds nice. The change of the beat itself, and other then that the filter was alright. But gets boring pretty fast. Too dry sounding though for all the sounds, but I can see that if you are limited to what you have available this would be the initial problem. Other then that I guess not much I can say but sense I don't know everything you possibly have made it would be cool to learn more about what you use and what sounds you have at your disposal I may be able to help. Allowing you more freedom to make stuff and show you stuff I have learned.

TheZaaL responds:

I didn't put a lot of efforts on it, and it is a track 2-3 years old, so yeah, it IS repetitive, I have only 9 patterns. I was REALLY lazy on this track, now when I look at it, it deserved so much more!!

Thanks for the review!

Nice little song, it has a very full sound to it and a nice chord progression! Also what you said in the description is spot on, when I do electronic stuff I never know what genre to put it in :P

TheZaaL responds:

Thanks man! I was hesitating between trance or ambiant, but yeah, thanks!

Cool song, really good for your first submission! I found it got a little repetitive for a 3 minute song, I think it's better if you either add more variety, or shorten a piece, maybe create some nice short loops, which can work really well towards video games! Keep up the good work.

P.S. The genre is fine, this is probably trance, but honestly it doesn't make a huge difference where you submit it.

TheZaaL responds:

Yep! You are right, it is repetitive!!

Thanks, I'll mabe work on it... later!!
