The beat and song structure aren't really issues as they wouldn't be staying that way, I've only laid the ideas down in a linear fashion.
It sounds a bit flat (perhaps due to lack of mastering?) but otherwise I very much liked the structure and track as a whole. Nice layering throughout. It sounds pleasant and memorable, and I'd consider finishing it - not something to just toss away.
|The main problem is I'm bored of the typical prog/trance song structure and I don't really know how to break away from it. |
I felt somewhat similar with the acid techno structure, and the only thing that remains is to either keep pushing the boundaries with different effects, sampling, and MIDI, or to switch to another genre altogether so you don't feel your creativity stagnating. In my case it was switching completely to piano, and I've only recently bought gear again to perhaps get back into it (I've never really learned MIDI before, so it would certainly take things to the next step).
Need your help, guys. I have two edits of the same track here (original and shorter re-edit) and I'm not sure which to keep, nor if I should keep/upload any of them to Soundcloud. It was a live take long ago, (perhaps a 30-minute track or so) and I've tried to make it into one short, complete work. Would like to know if it works, flows relatively smoothly, transitions, etc.
