Paulino, Forever in Time, much like others pointed out is forever in Time - listener Is teased with an interesting intro, but there is no punchline. Atmospheric feel is great and sounds very polished! Finish that track!

Ok, so, I finally "finished" a track - e.g. laid out all the loops into something that has an outline of a finished product. It's a very melancholy, dark prog/housey/ravey trance. I haven't finished a single track, so I think in this one I was making up for all of it - and it's at modest ~13 mins or so. But it slowly evolves into what I felt was a pretty slick middle and then pretty energetic ending.

It was intended to evolve from start to finish - so, if you can, give it a listen in its entirety and let me know what you think.




Few things I noticed already - there's a ducking that jumps out at one point and dips the volume. I also listened to it on a mono speaker laptop and looks like my "bells" are only 1 channel - wonder how to fix it. Ideas?

OK time for me to join in the fray here. This one's almost finished but I can't for the life of me figure out a good intro and outro. Any ideas? General consensus on the track itself?

Aquila, very cool concept. It manages to remind me of both classic euro trance and modern day anjuna-ish sort of uplifting sound. Some observations: @around 1 min mark - drums overpower melody.

When breakdown comes in - I think the synth you chose may not fit the overall feel. The analogy I am thinking about is: everything in the track up until that point screams: HEY, LISTEN TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY!!!!!! and then it whispers something not entirely massive. II'm not in love with the detuned synth that comes in at the break and then (I'm guessing same one) around 2:36 mark

The track also feels like it is missing something on the high end - maybe vocals or maybe a melodic lead. Intro/outro seem OK.

Does that make sense?

damn dude, I was shimmying my hiney to this. I dig a bit of a nod to eurodisco, without having heard the original yet - this sounds very well done and put together splendidly. GOOD LUCK!

synths are nice but a bit too much going on at the same time in places

this has a really nice feel to it! i think the intro is fine but you could probably do a bit better than that pitched riser?

Agree with the others, great. The bassline is spot on. My vote is yours.

Sounds really good to me. Mixing and arrangement are good to me. Only thing is it kind of euro tranceish but with enough modern elements that it works if that is the style you want. Very melodic.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

aNYthing, I think I understand what you mean about the breakdown synth. Is it just the sound though? If I applied the melody to something else do you think it may be ok, or do you think the whole middle part needs a rework?

evo8, I'll admit I still have a lot to learn with buildups. I suppose the risers are a cheap shot but they kinda work for now. Happy to take on board any suggestions for something else though

Trancelover03591, is the euro trance feel a bad thing? I originally intended it as a progressive house track with a nod to earlier trance styles hence the supersaw arp.

It all comes down to personal preference. I think you did it right, mostly modern sounds/feel with a throwback element or two.
