Hello, it's been a while since I've published anything. I have a preliminary outline of a piece. Tell me what you think, maybe you have some suggestions?
I intend to introduce some intriguing interludes into the piece to eliminate monotony, work on transitions, and we'll see where it goes from there. Your assistance will be very valuable.

Update: I've changed the sub bass and added a few tracks, made some improvements to the rest.

Your comments are a massive motivation and driving force for me to keep pushing forward with my creativity. It's an absolute blast that I can rely on your opinions, which truly help me take steps forward as an artist and elevate my skills. Every one of your voices and observations holds significant value for me because they assist me in grasping where to channel my artistry to resonate with you as listeners.

My goal is to continue working on this track and develop it into a full-fledged mix that captures exactly what I wanted to convey. I'll be adding layers of sound, improving the balance and harmony, and ensuring a professional sound quality. I want the final mix to capture the full potential of the composition and provide profound experiences for the listeners.

It all hinges on how far my skills will allow me to go. It depends on them to determine how far and how high I can take this creativity. My abilities are like a key to unlocking doors to new possibilities. That's precisely why I give it my all to continuously develop and refine them. The more I learn and grow, the more I can contribute to this project. It all boils down to how much heart, effort, and dedication I can put in to fully express what I have to convey.

In this track, I decided to go back to the roots and add a touch of old-school synthesizer sound, giving it a distinctive vibe reminiscent of past decades. It's something that particularly inspires me, and I hope this sound fascinates you as well.

Furthermore, I've devoted a significant amount of time to improve the mix so that every sound element can shine brightly. I wanted you to notice every detail and relish every sound I've crafted.

If you have any suggestions for further improvement, I'd be more than happy to hear them. It's incredibly valuable to me - I love listening to others' opinions that help me grow as an artist. I'd appreciate any advice and feedback that will help me refine this track and future productions even more.

So, I warmly invite you to give it a listen and share your thoughts. I'd like to know your impressions and what you think. Did you enjoy the synthesizer sound and the improved mix? Do you have any suggestions on how I can continue to work on this track? Generally speaking, what are your feelings? I'm eagerly awaiting your feedback!

I like the last version, the mix still needs attention but it's getting there. If I was you I would've check some Solarstone songs for comparison since it kind of reminds of his more deep almost progressive sound.

I think that kind of mix and sound would make it great also search for a similar vocal sample I think it will enhance the song a lot:

Each version is better than the last. The nice little percussion in the newest one is good. Melody is a bit cheesy and too simple, and therefore bored of it very quickly. The synth also sounds a bit unpronounced. I like the part around 5:15 the most. Keep going!

Solarstone sounds fantastic. Thank you for the reference track.

Ahhhh man. There are elements to this that are fantastic. At 3.23 where it all comes together. - Hands in the air feelings!

There are parts I feel there could be more striking sounds but the track in general has a great vibe, some arrangement parts are really good, others may need work. The string pad melody builds nicely ,notes used getting gradually higher in pitch.

Areas of the track (like the kick i feel and a few sounds that could more jump out) could do with attention (IMO) but overall it has this very classic vibe. That bubbly mid bass (arp sound? Or melidic bass? ). Reminds me of both Adamski and also some Ferry, old Gouriella tracks.

Good production dude. ✌️

In recent times, my interest in this track has waned a bit. Currently, I am simultaneously working on a tech trance/melodic techno track. Nevertheless, I make sure to dedicate some time every day to complete this project. Unfinished projects can be quite frustrating for me as they hinder my progress in mixing and mastering.

Specifically, I plan to focus on improving the lead parts, which require some adjustments. Additionally, I intend to make some subtle changes in the sound effects to give the track more depth and clarity. Soon, I will also allocate time for a full mixing and mastering session to achieve an optimal balance of sounds and refine every detail. The goal is to achieve the best possible sound quality while maintaining the overall coherence of the composition.

Sounds like good thought processes going on. Just remember to have fun!

Hey everyone,

I wanted to let you know that I've made some tweaks to the sound of our main audio. I hope it's now more powerful and impressive.
I'm really curious to hear your thoughts on this. Does this sound work for you now? Do you notice a difference? Your feedback is essential to me, as it will help me further refine this sound.

Let me know what you think!

Great job dude! You can really hear the difference. It sounds fuller and the lead synth has a much clearer appearance, especially in the intro.
I also like how the track evolves and from the second break at 4:20 till the end is 🔥🔥

Thanks for the valuable suggestions!
