Intro from a previous album



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow I really enjoyed this!! It's definitely a hard-hitter. Your vocals are so enchanting and seamless, and the melody and chords you've chosen in this composition are unique yet so suited. I think the vocals are mixed nicely and the strings are mixed quite nicely too, but there are definitely some other things you could focus on the mix, just to make it crisper and take it to that next level!

Glad I found your music :)

Many thanks! :D I'm glad everyone seems to be happy with the more organic element of the song aka the instrument in my throat, ahah! Thank you so much for the constructive criticism too, I will put it to good use with my creative work.

Also very glad to have found your music, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future songs from you! =)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I really dig this one. It has the right tone, i.e. the chord progression, melody, and vocals. It has everything it needs for a great intro, but what it desperately needs is the percussion to really jump out at me in the mix. It's too laid back within the rest of the music. I think it's really just the only thing it needs and it is quite a simple adjustment to increase the faders on that. Perhaps is what Lucid means for it sounding a bit flat. Trying increasing 10k in some of these percussive instruments too for some grit and see what happens... might be a fun experiment.

Thank you for your thoughtful words and useful advice! This song might be a decade old, tossed on here more or less to present my vocals (and I was actually about to exchange it for something else but then LucidShadowDreamer kindly commented and I just couldn't after that lol)

I'll definitely take what you said to heart if I revisit this song, as I do plan to remix older material along with future projects, where I also seek to improve my elementary understanding of the mastering process :)

Thanks again!

This is really nice! The harmonies are great. I think that the "instrumental", or the background track sound a bit flat, when it comes to the mix. Maybe it feels like there could be a better use of space (panning/EQ). The chords and melodies are great though. And wow... The vocals sound absolutely astounding! They are well produced too, I'd say :)

Great job!

Thank you so much^^ Glad you liked my singing! I agree with the instrumental part blending where it's hard to differentiate. (I'm sometimes like that kid who's already excitedly raced to the swing set while someone is trying to explain the rules of the playground, when it comes to mix/mastering :3)
