Report Space Sphere (Portal 2 Hardstyle) in Post Your Original Music! Posted June 2, 2011 Good start for a hardstyle track. If I'm gonna get my shuffle on, I need some damn kick. This isn't really an option for hardstyle. Compression is awesome, and definitely a staple of any dance music genre / sound, but you might wanna look at what's on your master channel. The compression is really audible and grainy (I'm guessing it's either Fruity Compressor / Limiter, or Maximus if you're using FL. Sounds like it to me too). How much compression is on your individual instruments and what's on your master? Lastly, I'd say your intro could be shorter possibly, but it would be fine if you introduce a kick somewhere through there. 18 hours is just scratching the surface!
