Doorbells are epic.

Pretty much self explanatory. Back when I wrote this I didn't even know what mixing was, let alone use any. Its still pure and unmolested, but to my ear it sounds reasonable. Probably due to the simplicity of the thing.

As a counter to the previous review, I'd leave this song as it is. It's quite good, I like the contrast and deviations from the chords that you used. It's not the best song ive ever heard, but I certainly liked the novelty of it. I would however, like to hear a bit more doorbell within a song called "doorbells are epic." It might sound better if you put the doorbell sound at the exact end, but I don't know for sure. Otherwise, I like this!

I would have to say overall that this isn't bad for your first production.

I won't even get into the mixing, but it's certainly something you MUST work on and I can't stress that enough.

The doorbell sound is awful...and doesn't really sound like it's on key with the chords your using.

-Onto the chords your using....they are are, to say the least, repetitive and somewhat unorthodox. I would definitely recommend you try remixing a song next to get a general feel for the atmosphere of a trance song.

The structure is good, intro, break, outro etc, however the sounds are very vanilla. Make some of your very own samples and sounds with the generators, or buy some, but definitely don't use FL stock samples unless your using a generator, otherwise the sounds will seem very vanilla to seasoned pro's.

The kick and cymbals are going to need a lot of work. Most of my songs use samples of sounds or even full loops because I am THAT awful at drum loops.

Recap for your next song:
-Try a remix of a song YOU like
-Make your own sounds and samples
-Improve your drum loops

Main focus on your next song:
This song is very simplistic and needs a bit more going on to keep the listener interested. Try to get more creative and vary the sounds and loops!

Good job on your first song though, please keep at it! You'll get better in no time.
