That synth sound is horrible, sounds like donald duck choking on a cock!

You got nice pad sounds, and atmospherics, but the synths and basses need alot of work. Considering it's your first track though, you got alot of good ideas, and as time goes by you will learn how to harness those ideas.

its like you tried to put all kinda synths into one tune.. You gotta kinda decide on what style your aiming to produce and then make it original with all the right sounds.

Sounds like you like the pads and the bass, they fit ok together. Strip everything else out and then work out which synths would fit best for that kinda tune. Gradually build, but dont go ott.

@Fletch. Ur just jealous u cant make a donald duck sound. hahahah

I know what ya mean about all kinda synths/styles in there... I guess theres just a bit too much there together.
I'll have a go tonight on stripping it back, thanks for the feed back! :)
