I find it very inspiring how cool you use effects like delay and reverb. for me you are 40 years old and you have been producing for 10 years, these are the minimum values! at the age of 19 it is impossible to hear such things as in this track, the more you have roots in classic trance listening to you. I like the intro and this characteristic buzz, today I don't know where it comes from but it is very similar to the old atmosphere.

IDK the exact date about the premiere myself, 'cuz I am planning to make one release for this and next track that I had started working on recently. Moreover, I am asking out Smug Peanut to help me working on those tracks, so it might take a month or two.

Video from creating process? Maybe, but no promises))) But there isn't that much to look at, 'cuz I didn't overwhelm the mix with different effects and 5-6 instruments for just side pluck :LOL: , just the sounds like they sound separately.

I don't want to upset you, but there are two samples. But I create samples for my tracks on my own and extract from other tracks of mine or hold them on special sample flp project until X time))) Talking about instruments, I created some presets from 0, some were based on existing ones but still altered somehow and adjusted to the mix. Moreover, I used only Sylenth as outsude plugin and only for one instrument. FL-based plugins like Harmless and Sytrus are my besties))) And DirectWave for piano, but even here I used one trick to make normal piano sound more like 90's trance)))

I cannot tell about others, but I am aiming to make my tracks sound a bit different and unique from others. For that I take oldschool, vintage and club-sounding (like Anjuunabeats of 2000-2007) on one hand and still outstanding from general european trance, leaning more to Japanese-like even more melodic, atmospheric and sorrowful anthems on the other hand (that 8-bit sound and "arpeggiated" bell was inspired on J-Trance). Here are some Japanese tracks that I really liked:
1. Graffias - Enthusiastic Cloudland (Original Mix)
2. DJ Noriken - Breakthrough (Lime Remix)
3. ZTS - Unfading Thoughts
4. ZTS - Emiya
5. Lawy - Miles Away
6. Junk - Angel's Voice
7. Dr.J - Sketches in Spring
And many-many others)))

If you have more questions, you are free to ask them)))


Edit: Actually, there's one more instrument from Sylenth)))
thanks for your comprehensive answer, I learn when I have a moment, and this is important information for me

a little provocation!

is there one thing that was weak ??
the ascent begins at 1.00. every time I fired up your song at that moment, I was going to translate it! after a few listenings, I stopped noticing it

Sorry, I don't get what you mean. Can you elaborate, please, about that moment at 1:00?

hey i meant the piano felt too weak at first, at least i got that feeling the first time i heard it. however, the song develops nicely when I get to know it better

Should I claim myself a prodigy then?)))
