This definitely has some potential, not bad for making it in one day :)

It seemed like the percussion was going to come in more, but it kind of stayed in the background and I am not sure if that was intentional or not. Just felt like it needed more presence in the mix.

Other than that, great melodies and acid sounds, reminded me of an interesting time of experimenting and having fun with the latest hardware toys lol

Jkillz is spot on, drums sound weak, no dynamic range in them. nice pads and arps though ;)

Oldschool uplifting trance is invading KVR :party: :love:

Agree with the others about the drums (they are way too weak and need much more presence in the mix) and the synths also need more mixing work as they sound a bit muddy and interfering each other at times. Also the track structure needs more work - these arpeggios in the first part apepar and dissapear in a somehow random manner making it hard to follow the flow of the track andthe transition from the first to the second part might be more smooth.

But overall it has great oldschoolish synth sounds and lovely melodies/chord progressions taken right from the golden era of trance. :tu:

Yeah, it sounds like a bit of polishing is in order, but I'm sure you know that. Still a good listen though.

Thanks for the feedback replies, it was originally composed on Christmas Eve of 2016, however tonight for the first time, I've been working on a fresh new update of it with a few twists and turns. I've been concentrating on the compositional part mainly, so I'll continue with the fine tuning of the mix tomorrow and then I'll mix it with some video for youtube. It originally started out as a fun little music project with experimenting with automation in Studio One 3, something I generally don't use.
