Well, I think any of the most popular daws are doing their job.what is important is how you use it.i’ve heard , for example amazing music in many genres made in reason or fl studio or cubase etc.so it is the skill that matters.I Guess the best daw for you is the one you feel more comfortable with.
Agree with BrancoG and I (not hate) dislike when a new item dissapears fast in the jungle and the views number reduces drastically in just a few days(at least for me as I’ m not doing any other major web promotion-because of my small knowledge in this domain.).So my dislike is somehow subjective and self generated
If your track was intended to sound like a early 2000’s trance song than it is a good job.From a modern uplifting trance approach the track needs more work.Because I don’t know your intention I will stop here but will be glad to give you some little advices if needed.
I have listened to a few of your tracks on soundcloud and the overall feeling I’ve got is that you need to work more on your tracks to reach the level where a track is accepted here.Although there are some good ideas there there is still more work to do regarding mixing,arrangement and samples used.
I’m not going to give you specifics but you should start from listening to songs that are accepted and songs that sell and compare them to your own productions and ask yourself questions like”Would I buy this song?” or “What would I use this song for?”-from a commercial point of view.For example,let’s say you have a song with a specific theme(like “city at night”) and when you produced this song you had this image and imagined some visuals where your song could fit,the next step would be to listen here to other songs with the same theme and try to make comparisons between them and figure out what works and what don’t.
Yes,rejections are hard to accept giving the time you spent on producing a track but once you get the idea of what AJ library means and wants you’ll see that things will turn up in your benefit.
scary and true ! competition is biting but can only make me work harder to get better results.time will tell.
a great contemplative track you made here!
The only thing that I would personally do (this doesn’t mean that it is something wrong here) is to enhance the low frequences,create a more vibrant and deep atmosphere.
Although I don’t think using the same sounds is a bad thing ,in this case it is the same pattern over and over again;the tracks sound the same-same rythm,same effects,same start etc.
You can easily glue them together and make a 30 minutes song.
Yes,it can be like a personal signature but you have to get creative about it.Beasides chords there are no changes;although after listening 2-3 tracks all sound alike to my ears.They all lack personality and may become boring.
In my opinion if you like a sound(s) (like you say) that much why not develop it and bring something new in every new song that uses those sounds.
Yes,there are authors that appear to make songs with similar characteristics,but if you listen carrefuly you’ll see that those songs are much more different than you hear at first listen.
