Here’s my new tune - i’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks but was running out of ideas until i saw the the new progressive tutorial (fantastic tutorial btw)
Would really appreciate feedback on how to improve as I am new to producing and learning more and more each day …
ill be honest with you. i think its well produced and i like the vocal sample, but the dissonance in the off key melody/chords really stops me from getting into the groove. i understand youve done this on purpose as a glide effect but it just doesnt work for me. it might for others tho.
but as i said its well produced and soudns professional.
cheers for the feedback jpgetty2win - when I get some spare time I will watch the chord tutorials as it’s definitely something I am struggling with at the moment. If you could give me any advice or tips it would be appreciated

your using a glide effect on the chords arent you? gliding them up? or just playing a chord progression?
im feeling this. it has a good down tempo dark groove with minimal tech style.
i also like the sample in the breakdown.
i take it youve seen zeitgeist.
cool track dude
Thanks for the comments tommy! Glad you like it.
The sample is from a film called network! Late 70’s early 80’s i think but most of it is pretty relevant for today. I googled the film you mentioned and it sounds pretty interesting, may have to give it a watch
The chord stabs make your otherwise very good track, terrible. I would turn off all your glide/portamento settings on your synth you use to create those stabs. Other than that man, it sounds pretty good. The glide is just a very obvious problem (but should be easy to fix!)
im getting confused now as my synths do not have any glide/portamento applied to them but obviously this effect is being created. Is there any other way how to amend this?
I haven’t listened to the track but if it’s not glide/portamento then check the pitch envelope settings. If any is applied reduce or turn it off.
Could also be a slow LFO modulating the pitch.
Moody, if you want to send me your session, I can have a look for you. Like Kieran said, if it’s not portamento, there’s something modulating the pitch.
I just listened again. Are you positive your chords are in the same scale and key as the rest of your track? It’s sounding more like that’s the case now.
haha, with that opening vox and the bass line sounds more like psy trance then house.
Agree with jpgetty2win bout your chords, to me the 3 and 4 notes in sequence sounded wrong and its also out of key with the pads i think??
But thats a pretty easy fix if your using ableton, there a tool in midi effect thats keeps you midi notes in key.
Other then that I like, bass is nice. Rly hard to get that psy bass nailed an you’ve got it spot on
