    For your first PsyTrance track it's very good. What's your usual genre if you don't mind me asking? The only thing I would suggest, would be to cut down the length of the into and outro a bit and increase the length of the main part. Keeps the dancers happier that way. Keep it driving if you know what i mean.

    Usually this isn't the kind of music that I listen but I have to admit that I like it, even if it's a bit too long.

    Well done.

    I haven't listened to modern psy trance in a while, I'm more towards the older styles and goa, but I gave this a listen anyway.
    Lovely pads and ambiance and nice reverb on the kick. Nice off-beat synth supporting the bass, liked it.
    Nice stuff when the real kick starts at 2:45.
    Finally a synth that plays some arps, needs MORE phasers though :bleh:
    I'm liking the part after the pause much more, this is more psytrance IMHO. And it already finished, but damn you closed with some really beautiful pads and lush sounds, even the chords playing/progression is really fine.

    What I think: if you're going for a shorter mix, try to cut down the intro and outro as the mage said. I would have really loved if the second part lasted more, that's where the peak of energy really is I think. Those intros and outros would make sense if the track was longer, but this one is really short. I remember tracks playing for 8-9 minutes straight no problem.
    Very good job on the ambiance, I liked it a lot :dunno:
    First part, not as good as the second, maybe it lacks some arps and some fast synths or squelches.
    Since it's named "tantra", why not add some cheesy exotic samples or some chants, just my idea though.
    You need A LOT more automations. Filter cutoffs, sweeps, resonances, especially resonances.
    Back on the length: nobody is saying this should last longer or make the dance parts last more, but that's generally what people want to do with "dance" music. But it's not always the case, don't worry much about it at the moment. I mean, if you listen to psy and goa yourself you already know this ^^

    I enjoyed the track and it's not bad if it's your first serious one, very well done.
    Hope this was helpful

    cheers mate! :like:

    it's good.
    nice club stuff

    i'm more interested in how you did it ( what did you make by yourself, synth, samples or vst you used, mix techniques etc ... )
    than telling you you should have done this or that.

    sharing our experience is good, there's always something to learn in how and why people do things their way.

    good job, keep going.

    Hi teknomage! thanks for your comment, my usual genre is progressive, but also i feel good with trance, progressive trance, electro house, etc. Now i'm into trance, doing many projects but i no have finished any yet.
    I will keep it in mind for the next track. Many thanks for take a listen!

    Nice work man, Really like that high pass kick.Although being a Psy trance track it was quite shorter for me I mean 8-9 minutes tracks are normal for me but apart from that the track is genuine and did quite justice to psy genre
