I really like the sounds and progression, save for one thing. It felt like the whole track was a huge build up with no payoff. :puf_unhappy: A lot of the hard trance I like has a very mechanical, driving 4-on-the-floor beat, offset hi-hats and bass stabs, etc. There's no drop or the like, so it ends up feeling unsatisfying. It is a WIP tho, so you might still be developing it, and hopefully this helps.

That's the kind of comment I made too, killhamster.
After listening to the artist several times, I understood how to interpret our friend's music.

It's the mastering that gives me the most problem here.
Too much compression, lack of drum dynamics and lack of panning space.

I will just correct that, then we will be more attentive to the many interesting details present.

yo. hi to both of you and thanks for commenting.

well song is still in WIP stage so it is just a rough mix with some mastering template applied.
i shall do the mixing better. ofcourse. but mastering is not my best thing to do.

yes uman's drums are too quiet.

i shall do the work then.

i will let you know when the work is done.


edit/ps: i am also not satisfied with the song's name. i shall rename it. but atm i am without any idea.

yo. hi. okey, i've done some tweaks:
- adjusted levels of drums in KONG (used is some preset from stock library) and adjusted a bit Audiomatic Retro Transformer RE
- re-adjusted all lane levels
- re-adjusted mastering

please tell me how does this mix now work?
i still think drums might be a bit too loud.
i am not sure.

please leave some comments.

cheers.
