This is pretty sweet dude! I really like how you used very simple synths with some effects to make a nice relaxing soundscape.

Usually I rag on the slower pace of some ambient songs, but you made the slower progression work in this case. It's like the pace and the slow changes are interesting enough to keep you listening. You add little things here and there to, like I noticed a few interesting note changes from like :45-1:15 and stuff.

The synth panned right would do some more improvised stuff which really helps it feel not stale.

If I were to make a complaint there's like 2 things. One is that the center synth that plays what I think is the melody is sort of overtaken by the two left and right synths. It would help you get that "sing-along" feeling, where you know part of the song just from one listen and you can expect it while the song progresses. It's an anchor you can know.

The 2nd is that there's something going on really deep in the basses, maybe I just noticed with my headphones, but I thought someone was knocking at my door when the song really got going. Is there like a deep sub sound down there? It's not really a kick because it doesn't match it. Maybe someone is knocking at my door?

Lol, thanks a lot for shouting me out, I'm honored. I'm glad you like my advice, admittedly though I'm not that skilled. I lack a lot of control. What really can help is going to the review for review thread and getting reviews there. Lots of them are much more detailed than random passerbys.

Thanks, please keep making music dude!

ok, the improvised stuff idea is excellent and I think more stuff could include improvised lines.. so much of things are loops that it's a change worth risking! This track wasn't really mixed that well, but the key things you pointed out are exactly the reason I like to post unfinished stuff, it gives me an idea of where to focus the mixing. For this track I got: improve panning to put one synth in the "limelight", focus on cleaner sub frequencies. Great advice, thanks a lot!
