Hey there, thought I may as well make another review. Going to just review in relation to the previous review, so I'll say the improvements and anything else that still needs work which I either didn't notice for my first review, forgot about, or just was lazy and didn't include for some reason. ^_^
-The initial hit at 0:25 is so much better - less painful on the ears.
-I can hear the tones of the bass a lot better, there are very few places where it sounds off-key now, and in those it does still at least keep the 'motion' so I can know where it's headed.
-Transition at 1:53-1:57 isn't painful anymore either. VERY nice fix on it. Still sounds sexy like the original without the massive overload.
-At about 0:15 the mix starts to feel really overcrowded. I'm not sure if the distortion there is intentional or not though.
-Still not that happy with 1:13-1:15.
-At 1:30-1:46, the pad is drowning out pretty much everything else, particularly the snare and the... bass. Just goes to show how much treble and how little bass the bass has. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, just ironic. (oh yeah, the same thing happens at 2:35)
-For some reason, after 2:03, I noticed that the bass is pretty much drowned out by everything else but mainly that high treble thing. This also happens toward the beginning after 0:25, but for some reason that wasn't as noticeable.
-Hm... the ending is better, but still not quite... enough. I'm not sure exactly how to describe it, but it still sounds more 'unintentional'. This time it's more like "Oh right I need to end the song at some point. -throw in ending-". If there were a bit more of a leadup to it with an effect, or some variations in the rest of the piece, that would help drastically. Also yeah still not a fan of the looping of a pattern three times. :<
Overall: Much improved as far as I'm concerned. I have to say, this is quite an awesome way to say "thanks for the comments"! Maybe I'll take a hint and try to do that at some point.
