After getting used to MilkyTracker more, and got motivation back on working with the module, I am happy to announce that I've finally completed it. It is now three and a half minutes long and I like how it has turned out overall :)

So you know the drill... download, and listen :) I will be submitting it to the site if Saga or anyone else is satisfied with it.

Well, to be honest, with the stuff you added, it didn't get better. Now you have semi-random melodies (a common problem for beginners), sometimes even combining them to be even more random. Listen to the melody in pattern 14 (0E), channel 4 for example - it's some completely random buzzing which is disconnected from what the other lead on channel 5/6 is playing.

Actually, that's the melody playing at a low octave which was intended, just for a bit of bass boost (which does have a gradual note increase afterwards). And the melody itself was made in less than a second as I couldn't think of a more decent one. Melodies are a pain to make, if you want them to sound good :P How would you suggest that I make it sound better then?

Well, despite that piece of criticism, I have submitted it to the site anyway. How only will it take to get a submission screened though? Just wondering.

Well, that heavily depends on the situation and context. Since you're making a psychedelic tune, listen to other psytrance music and try to figure out how they structure their melodies. Most of the time you won't find semi-random melodies with notes on almost every 16th.

And the screening shouldn't be a problem as soon as someone gets around and clears the upload queue. ;)

Well this tune isn't really psychedelic trance, but more of a goa/techno hybrid. It only sounded goa from the goa bass I added, and it's hard to actually classify what genre a piece of music is :P Suppose you could call this "freestyle goa" but I don't know. Thanks for all your comments anyway :)

Well, I'd say this certain combination of bass drum sample and bass is more common in Psytrance than Goa. But there's not much point in arguing about that since Psytrance is just a goa spin-off anyway. :P

Spend more than a second on it. Use as much time as it takes to make something that sounds good to you. The "random buzzing" sound I think the sample makes it hard to tell that it's actually playing a melody at first, haha. Maybe if you layered it with something with a clearer tone.
