Nice man! Really liking this. Even though i know nothing about very little about hardstyle, i really like your melodies and sound choices in this one!
The 1:20 breakdown was amazing!
Wish i was that good creating kicks, hardstyle has much room for them though but i think it works quite well. Maybe just a tad more low end in it could do justice aswell.
Just a short loop one of my newest work. The midi section of the arp bass needs to be cleaned, but is it doing any good?
AND i know this aint the best place to ask, but my Axiom is fucked up. I got new rig and when i start live 9 it works perfectly, but when i start sending any midi info constantly it stops responding within like 1 minute or so. Anyone familiar with Axiom series had similar problems? Asked on abletons support too, which leads to nowhere. [/QUOTE]

Thanks - I reckon you might be right about a bit more low end, and possibly some warmth on that kick. I don't anything about hardstyle really, I think a vocal will round this off better though. I can imagine a lot of you guys hate my distorted somewhat crushed sound here, not sure whether to tone it back a bit?
YOUR TRACK Domesty - I think you are very good at slowly revealing your songs, they slowly creep up on me in a pleasing way. Mix and sounds seem ok to me, but personally speaking I'm wondering if your KICK can go down a tone or two, so it players a lower note? You may want to see if this gells with the bass a little better. You might want to add a little pitch bend to it - its impossible to say without actually experimenting, it will be a case of sucking and see. Just strikes me that for my taste the kick is slightly off key.
