Yet Another Progressive House Track!!!

Share and discuss your LMMS music projects here, and see what people think!
For some reason, I can't seem to get rid of the stuff, it's infectious! :lol: Here is the link to my new track "When the Night Falls." Please give it a listen and let me know what you think!

Excellent stuff man. You're really getting good. You have a great sense of rhythm. If I had to nitpick, maybe the main melody repeats a bit too much towards the end (for a five minute song). If you add a bit more small variance and switch ups like 2:15 I think it would be even better. Though perhaps that's a matter of taste.

Edit: Are the sounds made with Zynaddsubfx or something else (or both)?
For the chords, I used Organic and 3osc. For the arpeggio, I used a sample from Cymatics Utopia sample pack. For the lead, I used a saw preset and a square preset set an octave lower.
Thanks!

Woo hoo! This is soundin' good! 8-)
Thanks Brandy! I decided to change up the drums some. Now I have a problem. I’m starting to lose ideas in the progressive house genre, and I’m not getting anywhere with other genres. Do you have any advice?
I'm not the person you're asking ,but if you can't get ideas at all, don't try to force yourself, it'll only make you either find even less inspiration than before, or will make you come up with bad stuff since it's forced out of yourself.
If you're not obliged to create new music every now and then due to a contract or if it's your main source of income, then you could try spending a couple days not thinking about what to create and... it'll come back by itself! That's what I do when I hit a wall while writing.
Well, most of the times at least; right now, my "free" time is occupied by this investment property in Germany, as I have to find what's the best for my boss's projects... And that's when your music comes on the scene, it helps me go through it, thanks!

Best thing to do in this case, is not to force yourself. Otherwise, you'll get burned out. :P
My suggestion would be, to forget about prog house for a few days, and try and make some random creative tunes. As time passes, you'll eventually get some new ideas, to make more prog house tracks, and you'll be back in business. :D

PS: Nikonov_94 gave a good amount of advice, and said what I would have told you.
Good advice Nikonov. :D
Thank you all for the advice! Btw, I posted the link to the other track I posted, Brandy. Sorry, I forgot to post the link in the original post!

I totally get you! I am actually in a similar state in my life right now. I gave a break and concentrating on different things. is my current obsession, I have to find a way to apply to this program.
