Kinda not happy with the way this turned out, but eh.


The sounds you used were fantastic, and the piano sounded really good, but I highly suggest turning down the reverb a bit. Reverb is probably the greatest trick up a musicians sleeve, but can be horrid if it is turned up to high. You used reverb well, but my suggestion would be turning reverb down a bit. The bassline is also a bit loud compared to everything else, but other than that the melody was really awesome. Keep it up!

way too much compression/reverb on the piano, probably need to compress before the reverb
piano is too loud throughout actually.
usually you should take all the bass out of everything except the kick and the main bass instrument, and then make it so the kick and bass don't play at the same time - either through sidechaining or only playing the offbeats. like that piano and phased saw lead don't need any lows at all, really.

one thing that kinda helps everything sound grrreat is if you turn off the limiter on the master channel, mix with the instruments all at a lower volume than the kick, then turn it back on. usually. depends on genre and stuff!

Thanks for the feedback man! This is great info. I knew I couldn't get the volumes/sounds right. everything all most feels like it's blending in with each other too much. That's the main reason why I don't like how it turned out lol. I'll definitely take your advice and try to adjust for my next song!

Nice simple drop at :58. You're getting better, man. Look into layering and compression techniques. You'll get that fuller sound and will even out some volume levels that peak a little too high.

I will definitely look into these things you're talking about. Thanks for the info/tips/feedback!
