I made this song in Garageband last night. Stayed up till 2. Woke up and wrapped it up. Its not really finished, I'm just not sure what to do with it. Please let me know what you think of it, and also maybe drop some advice on what to do with it.

I like the melody of it
It has a nice 80s melody. Happy and still a little melancholic. The bassdrum is perhaps a bit too present, it is a synth bass that has a lot of energy at the very beginning. Either turn it down a notch or use another bass? Nice layering of the melodies, perhaps a tad repititve at the end, but that is trance. This track sounds rather finished to me. GOod one. The end isn't spectacular, but as an end for enabling dj's to mix new tracks in, it is sufficient.

basically I'd say the same as what Justbase said... you could try turning down the bass drum a little but EQing it a little bassier ..it seems a little 'dry'.

Ending could be improved with a little more thought.

Enjoyed it: very danceable even if perhaps a little
dated in sound.

Catchy melody
Justbase and APB threw out some great suggestions. You might also try cloning that main synth track and dropping the clone an octave. Blend the two (meaning volume) together to fatten the sound up a bit, then pan them out from each other slightly. Another fun trick would be to change the sound/voice on the cloned track to something similar. It's all experimentation, but could yield some cool effects. Again, this has a very catchy melody and steady beat. Nice job!

I think I might be hearing the same things ....
.. as were stated earlier .. the drum beat (and bass tones) sounds a little (tippy tappy tippy tappy) ... would benefit from a deeper (thomb thrumb) .. ya know ???? I always say ... if you can't feel yer teeth vibrating ... the bass isn't bass enough ! well for this style of music anyway .....

I'm just a university student who loves the LFO out of synths. Ever since i was a child i can remember a desire to someday create techno. I used to think that it was a dream to maybe come true maybe some time maybe somehow. But after Garageband, and ... [see more]
