from the very beginning it feels a dark atmosphere, it is cool, the concept is great. In technical terms, I am not an oracle because I learn by myself, but clearly the volume levels can drill a hole in the ear. maybe the question of listening is now on the Pionner HRM6 headphones, although the high ones are very limited. overall great style. jI'm a beginner producer so my criticism is symbolic of good luck!


I was especially delighted with the second track, in the beginning I felt the prodigy drums

A good foundation. How new are you to producing? I like the bass and when you bring in the synth I think its working nicely together. Percussion feels flat and basic after the breakdown. The transition from the intro to the breakdownhas too much silence and for too long.

Melody would probably benefit from having additional phases or ways it develops (or counter melodies) to stop it becoming repetitive and too simple. A proper track structure of around 6 mins or more would also help you with some progression and flow.

Hello, I have been making music for a few years now. Started in Breaks and this is my first release on a trance song.

I really appreciate the detailed feedback. I love the idea of counter melody.

I am working on a song now and its in a position where I could use something, but I was unable to come to a solution. I think if I do as you say from this one, I can not only save the dull, but even add a new layer to bring it back.

Valuable

for a first attempt at big room/trance first off all: well done.

things that stand out for me: The sound & melody in the break. very effective/ mood setting, the choir pad. and overall leveling.

things that need improvement: I'm not a fan of the hands in the air part after the break. the staccato stab sounds a bit basic to me and lacks fullness.

things I find "ok is": overall structure, eq work and bass/perc combo.

I really like the breakdown and the synth you used for the lead there. I would probably have preferred it if you kept that sound for the full track.

As mentioned above, maybe some more variation with the melody, or arrangement could make the main drop a bit more enjoyable as it does get a little repetitive.

Not a big fan of that snare roll, it sounds too loud in the mix for me.

Overall a nice track with some great ideas!
