Such Absence

So I'm trying something a little bit different called thinking my songs through while making them instead of about a month afterwards. Dunno if it's working at all.
This only about 6-7 hours into working on this and I haven't done barely any mixing (this file is too large to run on my computer without rendering it, so progress is slow). Also, it is a low quality version because of newgrounds and the file size being too low.

So, anyway, this was somewhat inspired by my "Such a Beautiful Wasteland" remix. I think I may release a little free package of a few Such --- songs at some point.

Finally, this is WIP and I still plan on glitching the drums and mixing more. I do need some pointers on all that, though, because it's pretty hard to mix if you are constantly hering clicking noises while trying to listen to the song/instrument to mix.

Interesting track. The main thing to point out is the obvious; there is no building. You need it to come in with some loud synth at some point, quite possibly sidechained and EQ'd up at 3-5kHz and 40kHz+. Also the bongo loop thing should get louder as other instruments come in, and pan more. there is very little panning compared what you could be doing with it. Also, more compression on the kick and snare, try running both together through a multiband compressor. Also pick out asnother drumbeat for the kick and snare at somepoint. Your use of pads is nice though, I enjoy it.

I don't use compressors much, so I will probably try that. I need to learn to use them better. Also, yeah, I hadn't panned the bongos out nearly as wide as normal. Most everything is barely panned at all as well. Hadn't gotten to doing that yet.
I will try to build it up more, I do need to work on that.

I'll try what you've said. Thanks for the help.
