I like how the track begins, it could be used well in a number of sets/mixes. The panning is good too on the FX, and I love the little claps at 0:35.

The kicks need to be tuned I think. They hit a different note than the rest of the track which makes them sound a bit "off". I liked the FX at the beginning, but I think it should've gone away once the drop ensued. Now that I'm continuing though, they dissipate by 1:40. The kicks get lost in the mix a bit too, it's very hard to distinguish them from the rest of the track.

The pad work is great. I love all the layers, it's very atmospheric. I would've tried to obtain a wider sound however, it seems like some filters are preventing that.

The minimal feel of this track though is phenomenal, it really reminds me of some mid-to-late-2000s atmospheric trance and I really dig it. Wish there were more producers still interested in this style. I think with some more mixing/mastering work this could be an awesome track. A lot of the sounds didn't quite seemed as refined as they should be, and I think some EQing and mixing could solve those issues.

Very interesting choice of sounds at 4:47. I really like the industrial feel to it, though I definitely would have sidechained the high lead. It just sits there in the mix and doesn't do much. Some sidechaining with the kick drum would have given it some better presence. The kicks are all but completely lost in this section too, in addition to most of the low end.

Love all of the elements and layers in this track though, and the feel it brings is great. Not a bad job!  :)

Thanks for the input.
I'll take them onboard and tweak some more...sidechain in the High C Strings might be nice. I wanted the trippy FX to overtake the beats and wash all over the track.
Glad someone still likes Trance and Atmosphere.

128kbps from Soundcloud is rough...FLAC sounds so much cleaner.

Not bad for a 50 year old that picked up Ableton in November...I learned on Cubase way back in the day...seems antiquated now.

Time for a little remixing...

Edit...Tuned, EQ'd, Sidechained, ReMastered ...

I love the track. Great old sci-fi film feel to it. If I had to comment on any sound it would be the claps that
come in around 3:10. At first they feel a little out of place, like they don't have enough substance. When
they speed up, they start to form a bit better, but I still think they benefit from a little mid boosting :) The
grinding, modulating, bass synth near the end adds this wonderful atmospheric texture to the song.
Awesome job, can't wait to hear more from you!
