Simply bliss, very nice work. About the drums, I personally think they fit well overall but it really depends on what you're going for. Heavier drums won't necessarily make the song sound better, but it will make it sound different. Louder drums will give a solid beat, but it's possible they may start competing with other elements within the track. Softer drums lay down a good foundation allowing for the melody and ambience to come through, but will lack the impact you might be looking for. Again, it depends on what you're going for.

Pro tip: Try not to mix and master your songs on headphones. Invest in some studio audio monitors if you can, or use computer speakers at the very least if you're on a budget.

Great job. Keep it up. :)

I was aiming for the third option, Softer drums to allow the melody and ambience to come through. Also thanks for the tip! I do not have an amazing budget atm, but if my interest in music stays like this and only grows, I'll be sure to get better equipment in the future. d:

That bass drum/kick doesn't feel like it has enough impact when it first comes in, but feels perfectly in-place later, with the other percussion. The melodies feel unrepetitive, since you keep changing something. This is probably one of your best, or your best song yet. :)

AlexMaden responds:

Yea I noticed that the drum wasn't that loud now, but my headset has such a good base so I never realised how it would sound without them. I'm glad you think it's one of my best, because I feel the same. At first I was doubting that people would like it. Really appreciate you <3
