Hi guys, it's the first time I ever try this and I would really like to receive your feedback.

I used GarageBand, so my editting options were a bit limited, but I wanted to get that old-school melancholic trance sound that was lost somewhere in the mid 2000's.

Sounds pretty nice, but is too slow, really. Could be sped up, and I feel like something's missing. Otherwise, love the pads, and that little melody (which could've been expanded).

For a first time, it's pretty good, gotta say that.

The pads and synth sound really nice and atmospheric. Some good ideas in here.

It does sound unfinished though. Definitely needs more percussion to move things along a bit.

There a reason you didnt go for actually Trance bpm/drive/pace? Even for Progressive music it's too slow, more like modern percussion than old. But I do hear your nice melancholic melody and atmosphere which I like. Maybe a little too optimistic feeling at times to be proper melancholy but I actually enjoyed those parts a lot. Good ideas, needs more balls!

thanks for all the feedback, guys! I'll keep these things in mind for my next try at a slow paced song.

I don't yet know how to convey the melancholy without using a slower bpm, but will give it a try at some point.
