I’ve been up all night adding a couple of leads to the psy song I’m making, so I thought I’d post it up on here to get feedback an’ ting.
Feel free to post your own music in this thread too, especially if it’s psytrance. 😉 😉
PS: Excuse the name of the song; it’s easy to run out of ideas when you’re constantly updating and saving, innit.July 30, 2009 at 1:24 pm #1204148
Very nice! Been producing long? You’ve nailed the psytrance groove so no feedback on the production.
My only comment would be I personally really like tracks that have 1 bar fill-ins before each new phrase/32bar section starts. eg taking away the bass and letting it drop again afterwards, and filling that bar with some glitchy drumming or a sample or something new, this sort of ‘ear candy’ generally increases the complexity of a track so it can survive repeated listening. You have done it to some extent but you can always do it more :weee:
ps im working on a psy track too and realise i havent followed my own advice so im a hypocrite 😉
anyway keep up the good work raaaJuly 30, 2009 at 2:19 pm #1204146
Thanks for the feedback, dood. 🙂
I know exactly what you mean with the 1-bar glitchy shit, and I too love it, but I think it works best with dark psy. Hmm, saying that, I’ll give it a go more with this track and see what the results are! I only actually automated Glitch for the first time yesterday, haha. 😀
I’ve been producing for around a year… Little bits here and there which sounded shit; this is the first thing of any substance I’ve actually created.
Wanna post your psy song up? 😀 It’s all good if it isn’t finished – I’ve still got a long way to go with this one. 😉
Thanks for the suggestion, mate!July 30, 2009 at 3:19 pm #1204149
true, depends how full-on you want ur track to be it’d sound out of place in a more mellow track. By glitch do you mean glitch vst? i love that plugin.. a pain to automate tho!
yeah might as well give u my song as it is, it’s more in the psy breaks direction but more full on than the other psy stuff I make (i do psychill generally)
It still needs work but got the structure down.. still something sounds a bit wrong about it and cant put my finger on what so happy to take feedback too. I’ll take the link down when uve got it, there’s some old incomplete tracks of mine still floating around soulseek and it really winds me up 😛July 30, 2009 at 8:13 pm #1204147
Nice effort, man. I really like it. I see what you mean with the structure, but the music itself is fucking tops. Loving the melodies – sounds like good psychill mixed with psybreaks. Also love the triplets bit with all the reverse kicks – love the progression of the percussions at this part… Oh and that melody over the top! And that psychedelic noise that sort of sounds like an aeroplane over the top. Yum! How did you make that noise?
I’d be interested in hearing your psychill stuff as well, if this is anything to go by!

I do indeed mean Glitch… And yeah, it’s a nightmare to automate! :s I was trying to automate Glitch at the end of a bar earlier, I opened up a new track for it and a new effects channel ‘n’ all, but it was still automating the other track that’s identical to it, but on a different effects channel in the mixer. Confusing!
What do you use to make your music? 😀July 30, 2009 at 9:29 pm #1204150
heh glad u like what u hear! guess i should stop being paranoid about the overall sound. that aeroplane noise was made on my virus ti. Generally all my syths are made on the virus, i think that noise was a present I messed around with a bit.. i tend to program the leads and bass myself from scratch but for more complex pad type noises i get a present and then fiddlie with the waveform and fx till it suits me.
with glitch i just tend to render a load of bars with it on random, then reimport the wav and slice it up, saves having to automate it!
i use ableton 8, the virus, and a handful of vsts (ohm force and wavs bundle mostly).. urself?
