Thanks for sharing man.

pretty sweet vintage sounding synths, liked the soundscape you create with those textures. I also dug the drum break transition. As a suggestion, at 1:31 the cymbals sound a bit dry in comparison to the rest of the sounds, which make them stick out. I liked their presence, though if you are looking for a more seamless integration a light use of reverb would put them in the mix more firmly. The kick seems to be drowned out a little in the mix... try carving out a bit of space in the bass for the kick! I'd also say that carving a bit more eq frequencies for the synths would make your mix a bit clearer at times as well. all around, nice job, hope to hear more of your stuff soon!

Thanks for your feedback! I think you made a good point about the kick, it does need a bit more presence. I'm really working on building up my EQ skills so il give it a shot.

Really awesome track! It reminds of an old PC game I played when I was a kid called Laser Age. Definitely something I could picture being in a retro style space battle sort of game.

Thanks man, glad you enjoyed it.

Cool Track!

I like the mixing, it really sounds quite professional. You split the frequencys up nicely for each instrument. You use your effects nicely as well and the song really has weight to it. What I also quite enjoyed was your arrangement. It changes up nicely and moves the songs excitation along really well.

What prevents me from giving it a 5 star rating is, that you used pretty plain sounds. It all seems pretty standard and none of your instruments gave me that wow feeling. Although i like that stabby synth you have at the beginning. You could have done more with that. Also this song, though sounding professional, has this "I already heard that"-sickness to it. Try to be a little more diffrent.

So after all you get 4.5 Stars from me.
I'm excited about what you can come up with when you get into FL more. This DAW is a beast!

Looking forward to hearing more.
