Yay for Psychedelic Trance! Though Psytrance in itself has many subgenres, like Morning, Twilight, Zenonesque, Full-on, Progressive, Darkpsy, Forest, Hi-tech, Psycore and fusions between them. Then you have crossovers like Techtrance, Psybreaks, Deep trance and such. And then you have it’s predecessor Goa Trance, and all Goa is Psytrance, but not all Psytrance is Goa.

Just a random little appreciation for this crazy yet amazing genre.

Great Stuff Sir

Alex vega says:

Thanks for this totorial, i see my problem is to put the construckt of the track in the play list. Its not hard to make up to 1 min or so. Its the way to continue after that. So what u made here, i cinda copyed that just to get more understanding. So how do finish this with the rest? I m stuck, and ofc i did it with my own sounds. I dident have all the plugins you have though. But it sounds nice, sound uplifted. I really would love to se how u make it from scratch to FINISH.

Ma Ngọc Thắng says:

You can use other musical instruments to be the main melody instead of lead

Southern Hemisphere says:

I give this tutorial a 8/10 because of have a voice over in the tutorials! Most Trance tutorials don’t have that lol

craig thomas says:

trance was at it’s best in 1999, afterall, they didn’t call ’99 ‘the summer of trance’ for nothing


if there was a way to get nexes and sylinth for free that would be great
