This is a close to being finished mix. I am really looking for suggestions. You guys listen to EDM way more than I do. This was basically my first shot at doing a real EDM mix so any suggestions will really help. I through some pluggins on it real quick to do a fakey mastering job. Does anything sound cheesy, crappy? Hopefully it will be finished this week depending on the time and the feedback that I get.
dude, if this was your first attempt at making a trance track all i can say is…you are going to go far! dima is right about the sound being a bit old school but everything else was done extremely well. the vocals are great and i love the fx / echos you used. very well done. as for the groove, maybe beef up the bass a bit if you can. give it a bit heavier feel…other then that man this is a really great track.
I updated the files above as of 10-21-09 at 11:15am. I got rid of the stupid amount of high end, improved some transitions, and gated the synths on the second round of verses. Let me know what you guys think.
Nice track. I wanted to give you some constructive feedback on it. I like the beginning and how it builds up into the 1st verse and then into the chorus. I think one of the things I didn’t like about the track is how the vocals of the song kept going without a logic break. This might be improved by putting in a small 16 bar instrumental break at around 2:28 and then going on with the 2nd verse. The breakdown at 3:46 is really nice! I think thought I liked the first version breakdown better. I think the snare comes in too quick on the revised version…..but then I like this new trance part that comes in here. This part could have benefited by coming in sooner in the song. I feel it goes on a little too much for my taste before the vocals come in again. And then again maybe a break after the 1st chorus if that’s possible. The ending of the song was a little weak not taking out elements one by one until all you are left with is the kick and snare and a hat or something. That would make it more DJ friendly of course for mixing into the next track. So thoughts are my thoughts.
I like the overall quality of the production. Decent mixing.
