Hello! I'm still new to this whole thing and just trying to get criticism over this song I created after about two months messing with Fruity Loops. I use a few free Plugins, such as Trance Drive. Main ones used here are Sytrus, and Maximus. All came with the producer edition. Except Trance Drive, I searched for that one. I'm looking for people to do CONSTRUCTIVE CRITCISM, to help further myself in the area. I enjoy what I'm doing, and hope to continue for as long as possible. Thank you.

Very nice beginning. I like the overall vibe of the song. The tempo was good too. Not too fast and not too slow.

Maybe you could add some variety to notes played by the instrument introduced at 0:11. For example, every fourth beat (after the 1-2-3-4 count), you switch up the notes used (while staying in key of course). It sounds like you were using the same notes over and over with that instrument at the beginning.

That is an interesting bass at 0:30. It's actually pretty sweet! However, it is too sharp and loud throughout the song. You'll want to EQ it and/or turn down the volume so that it is not so overwhelming on the listeners' ears.

The way you used the drums/percussion in this song was good. I would have liked to have seen you try using various other electronic drum/percussion elements and rhythms in this song too.

Your transitions were good. I especially like what you were doing at the section at 3:05. I would have loved to have seen you extend that section and do more with it. It added a welcomed change to the song.

Overall, not bad. Not bad at all :) Just keep at it, and you're just going to keep getting better and better. Keep it up!

Thanks for the detailed Criticism Genie! I'm actually in the process of finishing another song I've been working on for awhile now. Going to give another take at the WIP song and try to incorporate what you've shown to me with this one. Thanks again. The sound at the beginning was used in two patterns 2 different patterns. And thanks on the Bass! That is a original sound I created using TranceDrive, a free plugin, but I see what you mean. I fought with it during the mastering process, that was probably the resulting effect. Had it overdrived and distorted. I'll be sure to keep that in mind. at the time of this song's creation all I had was IPod ear buds during the entire process, now that I have some studio ones, I can definitely understand what you mean.
Thanks again Genie.
