very good lol makes me want to dance

this is nice, I could see it playing out in a nightclub scene in a movie about the 90s/early 2000s where something tragic happens to the protagonist or their friend(s)

You're great and this is great.

Unf, dank. Super epic trance Mich. Were you using any of your hardware for this or did you stick to digital? Also, how do you write an 8 minute song? I get to about 2 and am like "time to clock out and call it a day."

EDIT: Oh, so you COPIED SOMEONE ELSE'S STRUCTURE just like a real musician. I'm so proud of you Mitch :')

Mich responds:

Thanks Quarl! <3 The vast majority is just softsynths and samples, but a tiny bit of the bassline (the acid-like stuff) is done with my DIY modular synth thing.

For the structure, getting it to 8 minutes, I listened to a trance track I thought was very well laid out and took notes where what should happen, roughly. Put all that in the FL studio playlist and went to town building the track up that way. Focused first on getting the structure laid down, then made transitions better and tweaked stuff til happy enough. :)

EDIT: Lol, all about those recipes. :P

Exactly what I wanna hear when I check out the trance section of Newgrounds. This is perfect man, that kick hits hard, and the bassline is so simple but really not boring at all.


Mich responds:

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it!

The bassline is actually made up of 4 different things so I personally wouldn't call it simple, but I guess the patterns played aren't particularly complex, hah.
