I think obviously inspired by the tiesto sound I remember from my clubbing days, I was and still am (although at a distance) a fan :)

EDIT : a good friend of mine who also knows my tastes in trance house / shares a similar taste in it said 'It is Tiesto-ish actually and maybe a sprinkling of Armin van Buuren. Also a tiny splash of Oakenfold' so i seem to have unknowingly hit 3 of my personal favorites of all time... although the tiesto inspiration was obvious even to me...

EDIT2 : this tune showed me something... i do not have enough control over my sub bass in any of my tunes... some might have worked out fine, but this tune made it very obvious... i will have to go back through my tunes and specifically work on very precise mastering... i am not feeling happy about this... it might have just been this tune that got so dirty in the sub area, because of the one instrument, but... yeah i need to go through and get anal about it if i want my tunes to sound good on big sound systems, which i do...

EDIT3 : well i think i have figured out what to do about sub bass... but i have a lot of learning to do it seems...

EDIT4 : i have come up with what i think is a far superior version and will upload it tonight.
EDIT5 : New version attached! Enjoy! It is Exh_saysoX1a.mptm.zip for those who might not be able to figure it out on their own. Quite a few changes were made, as you will be able to see.

i dont think my ompt songs will ever have the complexity of any of you guys' tunes
i like to keep it simple when making mod music, barely any effects and not many channels or instruments used

keep the excellent work! i hope i could use your music in my yt videos one day
You are allowed to remix my songs ONLY in TRANCE/GOA/PSYTRANCE GENRE and NO Trap HiHat Rolls PLEASE

Complexity isnt all good, as you can see with my second edit there, the sub bass in this tune particularly is not always doing the stuff i want it to, and frankly it is getting me down and dejected. There is a principle in graphic design k.i.s.s or keep it simple stupid - implying by not keeping it simple we are being stupid... so yeah it is probably right in this case idk... maybe i am going about my track construction wrong and i should be going back to sampling so that i can precisely mix for the sub bass... do everything in mid to trebble and have maybe a separate sample or two handling the sub bass exclusively instead of trying to mix for it with eqs on everything like i have done in this tune.
