Eh.

It's alright I dound it a bit boring, sorry it's just that it comes off as a stale production, I know you put hard work into this (or maybe you didnt) but I honestly out of my own opinion cant see any real talent in this. Sorry. Synth wise, it's just 3 saws and maybe a square with some prtamento or glide on them. Big Deal. I don't want to seem mean but It's my opinion. Practice more and take a few courses in mixing down and equing and synthesis.

Ouch, kinda hurts my ears.

Nice fade in intro, bassline is generic, almost the majority of trance have it. I don't like the reverbed kick, and you claps sound kinda FL studio basic. Your main saw synth is a bit too loud and kind of hurts my ear. Your kick gets drowned out in the mix by all the highfreq, you might want to focus on your mixdown.


ArKaineRevived responds:

look man, either you have extremely weak ears, or you just had the volume on 10.000!! That synth is not too loud, and but you are right about the claps yes, i should have taken a custom one for them, and i allready know i shouldnt have reverbed the kicks, too. thanks anyway for your time to review!

Sorry wilco

Sudden entrance and gated synth can only mean one thing, a b0unc3 wanna be song with a commercial trance sound. You're right about the rough eq.The only problem is that this song has no atmosphere whatsoever and the entire time I was listening to it it made me feel like I was going nowhere. I dont want to be mean Wilco but this was a boring track with the same old kick bass kickbass kickbass line and an abrupt ending. Keep working at it.


Wilco-TheOnly responds:

Yer well its just a bit of fun dude... perhaps i might've wanted to make a commercial trance sound... Oh and by the way, the gated trance thing, its not wannabe b0unc3 lol try paul oakenfold and early happy hardcore artists and thanks for pointing out what i already pointed out... cheers

My Review

Nice intro, but it hits the high freq way too much and makes my ears bleed. I hear some high energy stuff here. But the problem is how badly it's set up. At 30 secs into the song, you get ready for a build up, then stop, and kick in a horrible gated synth. You might want to focus on cleaning the mixdown up, I'm not into high energy hardcore trance. It's alright I guess.

Production wise, it needs some polishing.


DJ-Anti-Pop responds:

Thanks. I though the build up would piss some people off. lol.

It's not candy trance, it's your usual work Matt.

I hear those familiar percs in there.

Listening.

Nicely arped. Kind of reminds me of the intro to orbital's "halcyon on+on". Strings are nice but might need a bit more reeverb. I would like to hear more atmosphere, perharps some wind or maybe some kind of background effects to add a touching emotion. Your piano is a bit too dry and loud and distorts way to much. I would compress the arp to seperate it from the piano and strings. That way they don't clash. It's not really trance, it's more of New Age. But it does sound like a breakdown in the middle of a trance song. I'd like to remix this some time. Focus on your mixdow, more atmosphere, and you'll have a nice chillout track.

Can it still be trance at 160bpm??

I know that you say it's trance. But can trance be called trance at 160? Wouldn't it be harcore or maybe even gabber? I like your initial melody very catchy. Now here's the catch, great synth but your reeverb is too loud and overlaps everything in the mixdown, creating a horrible mess of noise. I suggest you take this back into a program and mix it down right. I don't want to be mean but this is almost unlistenable to. Your piano and main synth seem to clash far too much. Your bass is drained out and doesnt have enough presence. I would suggest a different bass because it's almost not existent. It also needs some percs. A kick and and a highat and a snare or clap wont really help. Break has a bit to much flanger in there. Sorry, but I can't stand to finish the whole song :S

You can do much better.


XsToRmEr1 responds:

Trance can easily be called trance at 160bpm.

This song sucks, I know. Some of the songs here I regret submitting because I spent a pitiful amount of time on them.

You should check out my latest stuff on my website and see what you think of them.

-Good work

Beautiful piano melody, I really enjoy the chording. But your piano needs to be eq to sound more lively and maybe some more delay and some preverb.
NowI wouldn't classify this is trance. This is more like breakbeats. The arping melody throws me off, it's too panned to the left side. Now the vocals are pretty cool, your high freq a tad too high thoug cut them off a bit. Would've been a really nice trance song, but it's just breaks to me.


Khuskan responds:

Horray for inconsistant medeocre reviews!
