Rest In Peace. You will be missed

Rest In Peace <3

I understand this is a different genre than I usually deal with so take it with a grain of salt, but I would move the first "blast off" to just before that quiet phase when piano comes in. Dramatic effect. The incoming piano would make it sound like you are actually sending something off into distance as opposed to just capping off a buildup. As far as the melody... I come from the school of thought that it trumps all, so I am not too enthused by the repetition, but I do recognize that it is widely acceptable within dance/trance genres. I would also say that the compression (I am more or less assuming that is what is causing this) is making this a constantly near volume limit spectacle - keep in mind that will distort sound and make it hard to listen to at times. Otherwise not too shabby. I do think you have taken some of the things I have said in the past into account :)
On a broader scale, be brave - do not stick with just one simple melody leading the whole tune; use variations, use different melodies intertwined and other little tricks to make the piece cohesive, longer and more rich in interesting bits. Yeah, learning some music theory if you do not know any WILL help. If you know some, go back and dust it off. I keep going back and trying things from the basics every now and then only to find out I have so much more to learn T_T xD

Cheers, and keep going!

I think it's pretty cool. I love that lead - there's so much energy. It's perfect for a geo-dash level. But yeah... a lot of people have said stuff about the side chain and I agree. I also am a sucker for punchier kicks and fat, arcing chords/saws IMAO. Nicely done tho :D

PancakePocket responds:

Glad you like it :D Thanks for the tips!

Its a rly cool song it just lacks side chaining it feels like the melody is playing on top of the beats. That and some more rhythmic low end and it would bring up some crazy energy into it! Some off-beat hi-hat thats clearly audible would probably also bring it up a lot.

Gj bro, keep it up :)

PancakePocket responds:

Yeah! You are right! Glad you like it!
