It was in my Music Cafe "wishlisten" but, I forgot it for some reason. :oops:

To be honest, the stereo FX, wahwah-like synths and excessive filtering are a little annoying. The FX are well done, but the problem is the overuse of them.

Also, the beat is buried in the mix and I think it should be a little more to the forefront.

Positive points: the track is grooving and you seem to know your setup. Like I said, the FX are very good.

Of course, it's all personal opinion. Sorry for being so critical. :)

Way too much filtering to be honest , and it cant disguise the fact that there are very few parts to the track.
I found there were a few dischordant notes in there too.......around 2:40 , and the final note being the most obvious , but my biggest problem with the track is the unusual nature of the source sample.......i know what you're trying to achieve , but that sample doesntwork wellin a daft punk-esque kinda track.
It could benefit from a much tighter structure too , as the ideas seem to drag on too long before a new element is introduced.
If it were a conversation between you and your listener , you need to be more economical with your words and say only what you mean to say and only what you need to say.
The overall tone of the track sounds good , especially the bass in the filter sweeps.
Hope this is helpful , and sorry for the bad medicine =)

Thank guys for the criticisms. Let me just try and explain some of them. I know the track is repetitive that is sort of the sound I was going for. The filtering being excessive is sort of a similar reason, I'm not trying to cover up the fact that the track doesn't have many distinctive parts again this is a stylistic choice. Also the stereo fx being annoying is something I had never even considered, but I think a lot of this comes from the track being too long. However I now know where I am going to go with this track so thanks for the feedback. I'm not one of the people just wanting people to tell them how good their stuff is I want to learn. So thanks!

Yeah, like others have stated, this is like a demo track for some filter plugin wank.

I waited and waited through 60 secs of "wooohhhoowhaaaawooowwhhha" to see if it would cut into the track proper.

But alas, in then drops further into the abyss of low-pass-filter-hell.

This virtual online A&R man (that's me) says "Nay".

Sorry.

:x

P.S. I seriously gave you 60 secs because I'm nice :-o

Never releases into a full lush beat with all the elements going bang bang boom boom ! Isn't that the whole point of the whole filter sweep stuff in the beginning ;that it releases into a full power progression ! I'm no genius but yea u can consider it ! Good luck mate ;)
Trance make me go woaaaaaaahh !!

Too little material stretched too far. A+ on the skill level, not quite such high marks for musical content.

i was just going to say something about the filtering to the effect of: anyone from the days of cassette and 8track tapes remembers how pissed off they would get when the player chewed the tape, knowing the result would sound similar to the widely popular "filter" effect everytime the song went into the chewed part :x :tantrum: :dog: :cry:

haha so much filter rage. I will post an updated clip of this shortly I will be interested to see what you guys think. This sort of started off as a production exercise so I glad that people seem to like the production side of things, the new mix has more going on melody wise and a shorter structure.
