I like this track. Yes, it could use a bit of polishing up, as discussed in the thread above, but I find it quite listenable as is. I'm not a big House fanatic, so I don't have a huge library of tracks to compare it to. It reminds me of 1980's New Order remixes I used to listen to when I was a teenager. Overall I like the sound, and I like the direction you are taking it.

As an aside, I am also an old Winamp fan and have never really liked the monolithic media players. I have gravitated to XMMS on Linux, with a Winamp skin of course. Never used QMMP, but maybe I'll check it out.

If I recall right, I had an issue with XMMS which I was using before QMMP, also with a winamp skin.

I am starting to become more happy with my track.
Added another vocal sample, which seems to work well in hiding the track is repetitive.
Also changed the loop a little bit.The loop has now 2 small pauses.

Been listening allot to house lately, and in general can't say I am really a big house fan. :shock:

One of my al-time favourite tracks is a house track though, but they the made allot of house I don't like at all.

Then there is Hip House, rap over a house track.
Another example of something I do like. ( with public enemy samples and some more to hide its repetitiveness )

Both tracks have something in common, I can't sit still listening to them :P

And another repetitive House track I do like.

Wonder were that piano sample comes from, because I assume its a sample.

I did some google searching, and its not a sample.

Everybody got to the studio, and i wrote the verse and the chorus in the studio. I added a string line by playing half the piano line through a Prophet 2000 string sound. Prophet 2000 was also used for the piano. Roland Jx 8p was used for the bass. Now I know technically better piano sounds have come and gone since that old 32khz Prohet piano sound but none of them sound better to me.
