Quality, not quantity.
1 American techno doesn't sound like that. (listen to detroit techno, which is america's techno)
2 IDK what euro techno sounds like, but I thought euro techno was just trance (that's kinda what happened when that genre moved to that continent from america)
3 that's a really good example of progressive trance, you should expand it.
4 It's uplifting, but usually uplifting is a little more energetic and anthemlike.
5 what the fuck
6 I can't really comment on it, I don't listen to tropical house, as I generally think it's pretty stupid
7 If you add a rolling bass, it could be psy trance.
The lack of a bassline really sells this track short.
I understand, thanks for the review!
So, I don't know anything about metal and deathcore or what ever. So I don't have the slightest clue what's going on, or what even is supposed to be going on, But I'll list some key points just on a mixing and mastering standpoint.
You percussion is spot on. Maybe I'd turn down the kick just a little bit, because steals focus from the rest of the track, rather than drive it. It just takes over completely anytime it hits.
You bass and lower end sounds are pretty nice. Other than the whole track ducking behind your kick, they seem to fit well when it is there. Speaking of which, I think there should be more low end sub bass, to carry some of the distorted guitars that are leading the track, because they're quite hollow (Don't forget, I may not even know what I'm talking about. I don't typically listen to this genre so I don't know what it's supposed to sound like)
at 1:28 I can't tell if those are vocals or a synth or a guitar. It sounds like it could either be female vocals, or a guitar sample/sound drowned out by the dynamics of other sounds. It's pretty cool to me, but you should learn how to clean up your mixes so it's not so cluttered.
All in all, it's not too bad of a track. I don't know your experience, but I'd say take some ideas you got from this and apply it towards a new track idea. Good luck on your future tracks!
This is actually fucking fire as fuck.
Literally. My computer is on fire. Fix it.
well i won't make chill house if that's what you ask
Now I'm not hating on you, because you mixed this shit perfectly well. My only issue with the track is the fact that it's literally just voicelines places randomly with no real thought behind it (at least it doesn't seem like it.)
But people do like hearing lines from their favorite games in song form, so kudos to you. You could do work like this for a promotional video or something.
And yes I do actually play overwatch.
It was a careful choice in decision, hence why Lucio's break it down sample came at a change up. Same thing with D.Va's get owned section.
Either way, much love for the listen and glad you liked the mix! Appreciate you :D
This thing front paged for a pretty good reason.
The artist may not know it, but this is an extremely ambient, and dark techno track. That might not what you were going for, but that's what turned out.
This is not trance... Nor is it trap.
Plus you're clipping. everything is ducking behind itself. you should check your levels.
I take it you listen to a lot of Armin Van Buuren, specifically his Gaia alias. Unfortunately he doesn't make shit like this anymore even under that alias. I'm digging this hard. You should finish it.
This sounds like some stock uplifting atmospheric product ad BGM, or even something in like a documentary.
The chord progression is pretty nice, but the track itself is quite quiet. In my opinion the bass is too soft for a snare that's so powerful.
It's a pretty well thought out piece though. Not my sort of music though, I'm afraid. IDK if you make your own sounds or used samples/presets, but the choices you made are pretty good if I do say so myself. Kudos if you made the sounds yourself.
5/5 even though this is not my kind of music.
I appreciate the review! I sort of agree that the snare is too powerful (but it's already way less powerful than my usual XD). I used 3 soundfronts, a few samples, and the rest I synthesized myself. In the background there are needlessly big layers of (around 5-10) patches I made in Harmor, giving the tone I wanted to give to the main instruments, in order to create the mood I went for.
