    Hi people, Had a really cool time making this track actually.
    I wrote it in A-major after someone recommending that is a Godly chord progression.

    With the bass i went wild with Izotope trash 2.
    I've recently fallen in luv with Native instruments Razor...Wow what a synthesizer..:)

    Its very easy to modulate and has some love wavetables so you can tweek your ultimate sound.

    Also, would truly recommend Valhalla - room Reverb. It sounds very nice and its £50 :)

    Drums sound a bit messy, not sure if it's the sc compression but they have a harshness to them. The bass is also very harsh, unpleasant sounding digital distortion and too much highs. Arrangement needs some work too, at the moment it's a bit repetitive. I like the vibe, positive :)

    Wow. Thanks man. It sounded good when I was making it. Sounds like I was massively deceived lol. Your bits are sounding great so I think you know what your on about. Sending the stems to my mate to sort out so should sound a lot nicer when it comes back

    too much distortion dude, ease it back on everything then mix it again IMO

    the music and vibe are good but it's really screechy to listen to

    Thanks for the feedback man...

    It was a case of "Louder sounds better" when i was making it. I've sent the stems off to see if my mate can fix it :)

    yeah what these guys said basically, the LFO screechy lead just RIPs the mix imo. After you get that stuff way down either just by turning it right down or adding some sort of sidechain compression, you should also review the relative loudness of all the other tracks. The drums need to punch through somehow but those bits where it's ambient are actually a well good balance. Try listening on multiple different systems and headphones and trying to get a good compromise.

    Sounds like it's being played on my old Sony hifi with the treble set to full whack.

    Thanks for your input guys. I'm just gonna remix it and definitely ...turn down the Trash Distortion on the lead..

    I did actually quite like the screechy "wild" style of it but obviously not to everyone's taste....:)

    I have poor monitoring in my flat at the minute so that didn't help :)

    Ill post another version of it soon :heart:
