Not too shabby...
2:30 is too short for Trance, even for a Radio mix... I see that you were going for soft, but I would have continued the beat through when the lead came in... the pioan sounded relatively generic, stick some filters on it (ex reberb, phaser) for a more unique sound... production wise, good, nothing that original, but its good.
There is a phaser and reverb on the piano with a string on it :/ and I think its pretty original...as for the time, I like it short and simple. Thanks for the review.
This is most certainly a club-thumper... you got me moving, congrats on that! My only complaint was that the breakdown/buildup was very one-dimensional, try expanding it so you have more frequencies going @ the same time. Also, on the main dance line, try to add some more arps in earlier (in addition to the piano). Melody wasn't that original, but nice job with this one!
Mixing Issues, PROGRESSION!
Very very commercial sounding, not really long enough for trance... I would make it progress a lot more, start small and bring it up! Mixing wise, the drum was a little loud and there was no bass to be heard. And the lead was repetitive....
Not bad though... carte blanche is a classic.
You certainly know what you are doing with trance, definitely worth the listen. Watch out for the mix on the clap, I find it way too loud. Also, the lead isn't very original, as well produced as it is... throw in some syncopation, play with knobs, make something that stands out; something I will remember. I would also get some better percussion samples, you put together a nice drum line but it isn't spectacular, look up VIPzone or the Thrillseekers drum kit, both have lots of free samples and will make your overall sound better. Nicely done, good luck!
Thanks we'll remember ur advice ; )
What it needs:
I can't really give this a number out of 10 because I understand that it isn't done yet, and it wouldn't be fair of me. What the track could use is some more progression. It starts with a cool melody, dance line, fades out, then brings back the same melody it started with. Make it progress. Start with some more basic drums, bring in some bass, maybe pads, then a simple melody or series of notes that sounds like the main melody, but is simpler and is NOT the same. THEN fade out, and when you bring it back up, use the real melody. It will sound much better. I would also recommend bringing out the hihats a bit more and making the claps louder. You should also check out the bass, it sounds very standard, and doesn't sound original. Overall though, for what you have so far, it is good by all measures, keep working on it.
