Neesd Mastering

I loved the melody but it needs to be mastered, maybe:
drums=FL EQ7+Fruity Compressor+BloodOverdrive

Btw, if u want sum samples to slice, I'd be happy to give u sum =), just PM me if u want me to IM u or email u or wtf it is, if ur not familiar wit Slicing drumloop samples then I can teach you the stuff for that too, 4/5, 9/10, remember ----^ ;)

A nice start, but could do with some adjustment

This is quite a nice tune, i surely would not call it techno - I believe a better subgenre for this would be "Deep House" ;)

When you said "relaxing pad" - you weren't lying, the pad is really really beautiful and dreamy, but the synth "craving for attention" absolutely drowns it out. The synth does actually go leaving the pad and bass at their own devices, but its just the same pad and bass riff looped a fair few times. Now i know techno music is quite reliant on repetition, but perhaps you could've added a little something to freshen it up. The synth does return back at the end, and the same problem still remains - drowning out the pads. The bass actually fills in quite nicely, and i noticed you aren't afraid to use full range of the notes in a bassline which is good! Another slight gripe was the drum pattens, which were awfully basic, kicks every bar and claps every 2 bars and so on. If you don't want to change this arrangement, add some extra hi-hats, percussion instruments or even a loop ontop to give it some flair.

Also if your having trouble with instruments drowning out other instruments, as well as playing with the volume of each instrument, try using Compression and Mastering - it works wonders.

Best of luck, and check out my stuff if you fancy some more trance & techno music.

Wow, thanks for the review. Ok, lets start form the top shall we :P.

All I do is make this music with what I know in FL so I don't really know the genres and all, but thats for the head up.

Well, anyway, I rush through my audiosreally fast, even I don't know what happens sometimes, but drowning out the rest of the instraments was not my intention.

Ok, repitition happens for a few reasons, one is because I only spend a few hours on a audio, and also I am not that exprienced with FL. FYI the clap is not the basic, it actually has a little spacing :P.

And yes, the bass does fill in nicely, just like its supposed to.

I also use compression, I'll have to look into mastering.

Thanks for all the tips (its been hard replying :P) I'll check your stuff as well and thanks for this massive review.
