    Default Need some honest opinions please

    Hey guys,

    so i've been working pretty hard off late and i think I'm slowly moving out from the amateur phase to like a semi pro..but obviously that's only my opinion and i may be wrong.

    It would be great if you could spare some time & give this song a listen, to provide some constructive criticism on my mix down..lemme know how bad or how good it is and where!

    it may be a little soft since it isn't mastered yet (in the process of learning that still)

    Thanks

    I'll have a listen & let you know later mate (at work now). I've been trying to get people's thoughts on here too and it's not easy as I thought it would be!

    I'm not a progressive/trance guy, so maybe this is how it's typically done in those genres, but the hats are way too quiet for me. There's nothing driving the beat forward because they're so far "back in the mix." Also, seems a bit "lifeless" to me, so I think an EQ on the 2 bus, upping the 2 - 8 kHz range maybe 1/2 dbs but wide may open it up and brighten it up a bit.

    At least that's my amateur thoughts on it.

    But I did like it musically, and overall the mix sounded clean in between people microwaving their food and getting ice for their drinks at lunchtime since I sit right next to the kitchen area at work.

    I liked it. I'd agree with INDY that it could do with a bit more in the beat; you can hear the hats in the background but I think I'd like it more if they were louder. Thought the breakdown was good and I liked the high range synth at around 3.30. Also I don't know whether it's a bit short? I might be tempted to make the 2nd half a minute longer or so but that's personal preference I suppose.

    Hey guys, thanks for giving it a listen!

    @indy i guess its my poor room acoustics :/ i have blankets hung..going to treat my room with proper treatment soon.

    @dave haha yeah i love that synth too. and yes infact i got so frustrated with it that i gave up and ended the track, though even feel it should have been longer. :P

    Thanks
