Uplifting Trance
« on: March 14, 2016, 08:48:21 pm »
working on another track this weekend. would like some feedback on the mix and anything else you might find. trying to work on mixing better.  I feel like this track could do well with some female vocals on it.

dude dope! I would say it could be a bit louder over all for sure. I'd try and add some more size to those main chords you've got going. I think you are a little bit of mixing and maybe some parallel processing away from a cosmic gate type of epicness.

from 2:40 to around 3:07 when the kick comes back in, make that area more dynamic. Add more layers, maybe an arpegiator or a melody. Something to make it more interesting and signify an energy building. Love the little glitch stop right before the drop.

There is something weird about the drop I can't quite put my finger on. Something in there is too crispy. It could be the high hat, maybe you have too much white noise. But it sort of over powers the chords them selves which are of course, the most important part.

Musically I love it dude. Great feels. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to hear more!

That's actually very nice. Sounds like something that would be played on FSOE or something.

Comments:
1- The intro is a bit too harsh and doesn't fit with the vibe of the track. "You can save the acid line and use it as a drop in another project, an acid trance one for example"
2- Lower the volume of the white noise in the drop, you can also cut a bit of the high frequencies. It's too much.

Overall nice work!
