First things first: I need to learn sound design and keep on bombarding myself with ear training so I can master stuff better.

Now about the track: I've been working on and off on this for a month or two and I finally decided to stop screwing around and finish it. I'm experimenting with this type of music, and I like it a lot so I think I'll make more of these. I'm still refining my sound, so criticism is very appreciated. Seriously, tear me apart. It only helps me improve. (But please, be an adult, and be tasteful. Insults don't help anyone) Thanks for the listen!

Yes, you need to learn sound design. I hear it. I mean I have the luck that I have a gift of melodic ear. Or something like this I think you know what I mean. I can tell you that my ears bleed a little. Only just a little which is kinda progress I think? To not be an asshole just saying, that the whole thing was just too sharp. Not like sick sharp, more like too sharp. Too many FX. I recommend work with 2 - 3 FX to make a song FIRST and when you did a great job with that, use more. Slowly.


But at first, try to use as less FX as music theory allows and then give more FX slowly.


Until you mastered it.

I'll admit that I've never been a fan of this kind of music but I'll try to my best to review. Right off the bat the snare sounds too sharp. So does some of the lead melodies too; for example at 1:36 and 3:00. From what I can hear there aren't that many instruments playing at the same time; you could fix this by making the bass a bit louder and adjusting the mastering, or by adding more background instruments. I would highly recommend adding FX and crash cymbals into your songs also. Overall it sound alright, not as good as your previous songs though

Other than a few minor things here and there, I liked it! In the beginning section, I think you should have more low sounds, you know, to build the foundation. Another minor thing I think you could focus on is focusing on the song as a whole. Many including myself tend to think that others know what your trying to convey with the song, but it is not always presented as such. Its just a minor thing, and I think it could help the transitions more, but aside from those, I like it!

Interesting stuff. It doesn't sound bad. Your perc could use work though, at least in the FX department. Reverb, phasers, flangers, chorus (stereo effect)... I don't think this is trance, though. It may be. It just doesn't sound like a lot I've heard. I like it, though.

Your leads aren't coming out as much as they should in the mix. Do you have a master limiter on the whole mix? Are you sidechaining? I hear some of the characteristic pumping, but I'm not sure.

That midrange bass sound is odd. Sounds like it's just kind of herp derping while the more synthy bass kicks the track along. 2:20 sounds really good. Your squirrelly riffs in the midrange are throwing me off though. Needs more of an edge to the sound. 3:00 is another good bit. The lead isn't characteristic of most trance I hear though. Listen to ATB - Could You Believe, and get a feel for leads like that. Actually, listen to ATB, period. Great inspiration for Trance.

Hey, thanks! I didn't really know where to put this, and I feel like it's more trance than the other categories available. Thanks for the advice and the ATB suggestion!
