QuoteI'm listening to it...To say from the start, I'm not sure what general direction the song is really going for. It's a near generic Trance type song, which is interesting, but you need to go out with something that's truly enthralling.
QuoteThe tune does work out well at points. You do make some sort of build-up, but there isn't really anything after that...As in of an escalating excitement thing, you get me? It's hard to really point out at words for something musical.
QuoteThe end beat is actually pretty cool to have, had it been used for something else. The end is really abrupt because of that. If you used it for something else, say a transition to something pretty spiffy, it'd be a nice addition.
QuoteCurious - do you have any musical background?
QuoteAnyways, I like the main melody thingy - however the one of the background sounds (which kinda reverbs and echoes and comes in after the melody has played once [sorry - I know nothing about music]) seems a little unharmonious to me.
QuoteI also thought the piece deserved a bit more of a hardcore drumming pattern perhaps later on in the song.

Always completed the major scales and done some minor scales. I've got knowledge about the basics like scales, chords and some musical theory. I can't read or write music sheets, though.

Most of the sounds are rendered by Sytrus (look it up on the net, it's one of the most powerful synthesizers FL Studio offers), but all of them are presets (in the "Sytrus" list on the left collection pane). I have no clue about what those various settings do, I should learn more about it.
