New Track - Hypercube!

Bit of a mix of styles this one, but it has quite a lot of energy.

I used:

3xbeatbox,
3xPCM,
2xSubSynth,
2xBassline,
1xModular,
1xFM,
1x8-bit.

One of the beatboxes was purely for a 4 to the floor beat which I then muted but sidechained a compressor on the main synth to, to give an interesting effect.

Nice at 0:37, sounded like it

Nice at 0:37, sounded like it was going to open up the cut a bit more but you kept it tame. :)

1:20 classic break! 

3:10 precious...

3:45 another perfect break, I love this type of structure.

You are experimenting with goa plus some other mixes I love it man!

Was that a cow bell at the end? hehe

Thanks for the comments Mike.

Thanks for the comments Mike. I'm definitely in a trancey place at the minute but I'm still finding my feet. Enjoying mixing it up a bit too!

I used Skarabee's Indycat kit for the congas(?) and what sounds like a cross between a triangle and a cow bell! ;o)

Nice song (although the 8-bit? lead/bass is a little bit crude) with a good arrangement and a wide stereo basis. Does not sound like an cheap app production.

Loads of energy, great track!

Loads of energy, great track! I particularly liked the strings that come in around the 3 minute mark.  Good advice about the muted side-chained Beatbox, I used a similar ducking effect on my latest track, but hadn't considered muting a duplicate copy for when the beat is absent - I'll have to remember that for next time!

I have been listening through your stuff on SoundCloud and liking it all a lot. On this one in particular, I am loving the crunchy bass sounds.

Great stuff! I like the crusty bass. The growl makes the bass\lead pop.  I've tried to do trance\ambient but I always fall in my rock-n-roll trap.

Yeah... It's all nice and melodic so it ticks loads of boxes for me, structure is nice, drifts around a bit and finds it feet again, I like.... 

But beef though, and this is just personal taste, the whole thing feels a little thin, especially considering you've used 13 machines. I just feel like there should be something filling it up. But, of course, this is just my personal taste!

do you mean the lead /bass

do you mean the lead /bass that's there from the start or the actual 8bit one which appears partway through?

Quality tune Bojeroo, the kind of tune that reminds me that I don't actually dislike Trance as a genre, I just dislike average Trance music laugh

I know what you mean James, and I think it's true for a lot of EDM sub genres.

Sound wise, it's probably just my taste as I tend to create a wall of sound!

Another solid track from

Another solid track from bojeroo! Nice! I can kind of see what Rob Farley is talking about, it doesnt sound thin to me but maybe like you need to build some tension using a little white noise riser effects and such. Maybe take take some crash cymbal samples and reverse them in the pcmsynth, its the easy way to do it. The subsynth works great for riser and sinker effects since you can have multiple waveforms that can be mixed together. Although it may sound crap to add these kinds of effects to your tune, never know until you try it.

I agree Mek. I wanted to put in a riser/sinker with a repeated fire alarm bell effect. but couldn't find a good one to build the effect from. I might look at it again...

You need to twist the filter

You need to twist the filter knobs more.  And maybe automate some of the levels to emphasize the leads. Otherwise the track is solid. just consider some knob tweekery.
