    Overall, ok. The arpaggiated synth is a bit over cooked. But other than, not bad for a first track. The arpaggiated synth is a matter of taste too. There are hits out there where I think there is too much of that in the track.

    Pretty god for a first song, really liked the melody, but you could work on the sounds a bit, they seem somewhat a bit noisy But yeah overall very nice, keep up the good work!

    Haha yeah I wanted it to be trance, but then I guess it's now progressive trance maybe? And thank you!

    Ahh I gotcha, I was wondering what do you mean by the bolded part? And I definitely appreciate the feedback, once I understand that part i'll definitely try tweaking sounds here and there and hopefully you'll like the next one more! Thanks for the feedback scamo!

    When you say noisy, do you mean overbearing on the ears? Could you please describe it a bit more? Should I have EQ'd out frequencies to make like the sounds more clear or something? And thank you so much for your feedback! Glad you enjoyed it!

    Forget what I meant in that sentence. Just try to come up with more of a melody and use the arpeggios to enhance the melody.

    Overall, it's actually a pretty good jam for a first go. The break from 1:20-1:50 seems a little flat, maybe play with it a little to make it more dynamic. I dug the sound(s) you used for the build directly following that part.

    not really my genre but it sounded pretty solid to me.
    the beginnig is a little harsh, a small intro is never wrong i guess.
    and the bulid-up starting at 1:50 has too much of this stereo-left-right-swapping-thingy ( i dont know what the technical term is but i guess you get what i mean) for my taste. not saying it shouldnt have any but the sound should never be completely on either side imo.
    otherwise good job, keep it up

    Ahh, I agree completely. Do you have any suggestions to add dynamics? I mean I know i'll work on the levels maybe and bringing in sounds here and there, but any specific advice would be greatly appreciated!

    The intro do you think would be better without the build and just the regular drums going? As for the stereo moving from left to right (it's called panning ), the reason behind that was I was trying to give it like a feel of a tornado in a club. Like if you're standing in the middle of the dance floor the sound goes around and around in an increasing rate.

    Thank you guys for your feedback!
