  1. COOL!

    Wonderful stuff in here, thanks so much for sharing. Sure, some of those items (like the first where builds up with a mere c chord) looks very simple. But its "simple" examples and ideas which can actually help you build up your work.

    I'm not a fan of trance music so to speak (as in; not going out to dance fests and such) but I do like several numbers and I really like some of those specific trance sounds. Got myself the free 'TranceDrive' VST just because of that. Alas; never done much with it apart from enjoying the sounds as a "fill up" on some sound scape ideas but this is something I'll be trying out later on for sure!
