I think in the future you should focus more on creating good melodies. This song is good but it's like a really good quality canvas that needs paint. The ending left me feeling inconclusive. The song stopped so suddenly and I didn't understand the reason for that.
I totally agree with your critique. I'll make sure to improve on my next song!
I think D-chain has made comments that I agree with for the most part so to save time I will only say the things he/she didn't yet.
Well, I'm always a fan for diversity and this is one of a few trance songs that is more diverse. Still somewhat repetitive for me, but I understand trance is supposed to be repetitive.
I've said to this quite a few producers on NG and I will say it to you too. Percussion with high frequencies emphasized is a good thing. Don't drown them out. That clap needs to sound more upfront and crisper.
Around 0:40 your choice of lead instrument is not that good. Sounds like a preset that has little work done on it.
D-chain mentioned of the awkward drums you used around 1:12, but I kind of liked the change from the four to the floor drum pattern. Interesting idea, though the accompanying composition could have been a bit better.
Your choice, but I suggest never to add in vocals that act like MC. Only live MCs should say stuff like that, not in a song.
Overall I feel like this song is mostly bass and nothing else. I think you should have spent more time making a melody and harmony. Then again, you only spent 5 hours. Try to make a song that takes longer than 5 hours....like a couple of weeks. At least I could tell you had fun making this and that is what matters the most.
5/5 vote and review.
Bye for now
Wow, that's what I call a review! I'll be sure to implement the changes you've recommended in my next production, thanks for the critique! :D
You have been busy while you were gone I can see--this is absolute creativity! I agree with a lot of what D-Chain said, but I'm not sure I would constrict yourself so much--I mean, this is pretty sick, even if it isn't conventional. I love it! Can't wait to hear more! :DD
Thanks dude! Be sure to see more stuff coming out soon!
This song is frickin catchy mannn!! I could really see your beats in the charts in the near future keep it up dudeee!
Thanks Martin! All the support is most welcomed :)
so here i am.. still awake while i should be sleeping..
Hello to you sir! haha
the moment i started playing this song i thought it was elektro lol
the first cuttoff (vocal) synth is off key.. you might want to fix that at 0.13 - 0.16
the melody coming in at 0.31 sounds epic! reminded me a bit of hardtrance melodies.
good fill at 1.03! but im not sure what the weird breakbeat/trap beat is about? i dont really like it that much if im honest. you best use a snare roll of some kind, there are serious a thousand ways to do a snare roll.
alright so after the build it sounds good again.
at 1.49 there's a Snare drum overpowering everything with its volume but most with its reverb.. might want to fix it.
hmm again the breakbeat/trap beat..
the main synth is nice in a strange way lol
hmm the outro was a bit like.. IN YOUR FACE and gone.. bit too fast for me.
overall i would say i like this song for 55% the hats where imho perfectly done,
but the structure, the idea behind the song is a bit unclear to me.
my suggestion is that you should try and listen to other trancy songs, study the structure of them and possibly the waveform!
Thanks for the honest review! I suppose I didn't have a clear direction in my head, maybe that's something i'll work on next time.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
