Maybe just a minor gripe, but in the breakdown section you did, I personally found that the supersaw lead you used brought me out of the calm atmosphere that you introduced. :( How about switching that out for a tamer lead? It would also add variation in the choice of leads, which only helps your case.

I don't have much to say otherwise, other than to second @Gario that the source usage isn't totally obvious, even though I know the source pretty well. It's in a minor key most of the time, and is also used in a segmented manner, so I would have to listen to the source side-by-side to be able to compare sometimes.

Good idea. I may have to bring something in, though, when the energy starts coming back. It's like every time I go to mix or master, I end up adding or changing it lol.

For example, @TurboChaser and @Gario mentioned there wasn't enough source. Well, I agree, and I'll be fixing that.

I actually like the Supersaw and the whole track sounds great on tablet speakers which usually make music I listen to feel cluttered so I'd say it's good to go!

I'd also say the liberal use of theme in this version is better now, because you still have lots of recognizable parts and also lots of new parts, a good balance of them too.

still like version 2 more though sorry XD

I think you'll be fine if you submit this, tbh. I could hear some complaints on the panel come up about some random mixing elements or another, or someone else might say the drums are a hair static, but I doubt it'll be turned away as long as a decent time stamp is sent with it (still not an easy track to parse the source from, lol).

Looking forward to it!

Pretty much just Jarski/PsyNES that posts psytrance that I know of (I do miss him on OCR and the WIP boards - hope we pass some more of his stuff soon!). He used to post all sorts of Psytrance on the WIP boards back in the day, and even opened that whole genre up for me.

I wish you the best on the panel, too. :)

I like the altered squelches, where they used to be the same sounding, and I also love the main melody being arpeggiated. The breakdown was pretty nice. I love how it stopped playing with the drums and just built up back into the 4 on the floor beat. Your remix evolved nicely.

Not entirely sure I’m allowed to do this, but I wanted to thank everyone for all your advise and help with the track! It probably wouldn’t have passed the panel without it. I look forward to submitting more in the future!
