We've composed a track called Driving (Not Home For Christmas). It's not mixed and mastered, but have a listen and if you like it you can download the entire MIDI project for it, with chord progression, lead, bassline, etc. Such midi files are great building blocks for composing your own tracks. More importantly, they are an excellent learning tool. Studying the way others arrange various elements can help you to improve your own composing skills.
By the way, do not hesitate to let us know if you compose something cool around these MIDI files.
Composing trance was never easier with Trance Forms Vol. 1, a midi and sample product from our friends at 5pin Media. We have written about this label before and for a reason. The guys at 5pin Media are true experts in creating quality products that are unique in the sense that they combine midi with samples in construction kits that get you up and running in no time.
This release can be used for any genre of trance and progressive house. It really is what it promises to be - an essential toolbox for anyone who wants to boost his or her trance composing skills.
I am a trance music addict. With its dynamics, melodic and atmospheric qualities and ethereal female leads (vocal trance), trance music is uplifting, beautiful and even spiritual. Like no other genre it connects with my emotions.
Halon (Espen) is a Norwegian producer with a hidden talent up his sleeve. Under various aliases he has composed some really interesting trance and house tunes. He is by no means an established name and has no official releases to date, but when I came across 'Halon Feat. Veela - Tell Me' on soundcloud it got stuck on repeat. It’s one of these tracks I'd play insanely loud when cruising the German autobahn in my BMW. Ok, I admit it would be in a somewhat less powerful car, but the stamina of this track more than compensates for that!
