its too fast and there is a slight break every time it loops. definitely a good melody though. would make a great into to a longer song i think.
yeah i just experimented that's why i did not continue it, i wanted to see some critics :P
you can reduce the data size by lowering the bitrate. while 320kbps is great, in most cases 128-192kbps will be fine and the drop in quality will be barely noticable. keep in mind also that fl studio (assuming that is what you are using) seems to over estimate the final size of mp3 files by 1-3mb
that being said, this definitely needs some remastering before 3:58 but you have something going. one of the components of each of your buildups seems to have a lot of very intense white noise in it. IMHO it is a little too intense. I also think that be bass needs something is a few places, perhaps just a little more stereo offset on the delay.
that being said, it is a great start. plenty of variation while maintaining a repetitiveness that makes it easy to add into a long set. also a great selection of samples.
Thanx for your response - that certainly seems worth trying. I also felt the same way when previewing it ( the bass seemed oddly less powerful in some places ), I also kept white noise in most of my build ups = I just wish i could hear them better since im not really using good stereos.
As a side note - this one particular bass I made from scratch in 3osc - and used reverb instead of full on delay - unless your talking about another component of it, anyway thanx for the advice.
I think that although the melody repeats a fair amount it doesn't feel repetitive due to small changes made to the sound.
it does sound like the mix is really empty at some points such as 2:03 and at the transition at 3:15
could be good though.
Thanks for the review, I'm glad you don't think it gets too repetitive.
The transition at 3:15 will be fixed hopefully!
Nice, i like this kind of jazz.
Is this recorded or done with software?
Thanks for the review! Played it with MIDI controller into DAW, unfortunately, but what can a poor man do. Pianos are attractive but expensive.
Well i certainly hope this is not your last song, this is epic
great song although it did feel like it needed to be mastered a bit more in the beginning. also, except for the last 1:30 minutes which we epic, it felt a bit repetitive.
cool. I felt like it had a bit too much noise in it (ie static) that made it hard on the ears and it took too long to get to the spot around 3:24. there was no melodic release in the beginning three quarters. but there was in the last quarter, it made it seem a little bit unbalanced.
Thanks for the review! So , as far as I get it, I overplayed the progressive part too much? I don't actually get what melodic release in this context means, since in the exact middle, there's a different synth playing different chords. You are right though that it could be just a peak of a buildup and not an actual release. . . anyway, enough with the jargon, I just want to say that I'll keep the stuff in mind next time I open FL :)
4.5 because i didn't like that it ended.
seems pretty good, i dont like the sections where almost everything drops out or that spot near 1:25 where the right channel was muted or near 3:13 where it was all in the right channel. it also feels like a lot of the different elements are just slightly offbeat, this gives the feeling that the song is getting faster when it is not and can throw off a persons feel for the beat. something to keep in mind is that trance music is almost always done on a 4 by 4 beat so you should try to find a way to emphasize the kick on the on-beats and use a snare, hihat, ride or secondary kick for the accelerating beat leading up to a transition.
this is pretty good though, this is just my two cents on how you could improve.
reminds me a bit of some of my early stuff, at least until 2:30. pretty good, definitely better than my early stuff.
