Good drums and simple but powerful bass. The piano is sweet!

Thank you so much for the kind words! Glad you enjoyed.

I'm noticing really heavy reverb here. That could be what's causing the slight muddiness in your mix. Try turning down the FX wet and hi-passing it. These frequencies tend to gradually build up and cover up whatever polish a mix may have. I'm not a huge fan of all the synths used here, so some free recommendations, ABPL bass, AGML acoustic guitar, Headroom Piano/Intimate Piano -- I don't remember where I got that last one but it was free and probably in the free kontakt library thread in the audio forum.

Other than that, nice writing. Mixing is the only thing that really needs work. I like the organic feel. Would have rated a full star higher for cleaner mix and better treatment of non-piano synths, especially percussion, which is almost hidden in the mix for most of the track.

shadow-ghost responds:

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment; I do appreciate the tips and critiques. I think lack of knowledge of mixing on my part is what's making the reverb a bit too heavy (among other things), as I've always been more into the writing/composing part than anything else.

I'll see what I can do to improve and try my best to reduce the muddiness next time. ;)

The bass sounds a little muddy to me, but other than that this sounds pretty nice. The ambient style is relaxing for sure, and the keys are quite nice. The piano isn't terribly repetitive, but some changeups in tempo or energy would have been kind of nice. Still though, the mixing is probably my biggest gripe.

shadow-ghost responds:

I think you have a point - mixing has admittedly never been my strong suit... I might've gone a bit overboard with the reverby/ambience sound.

Anyway, thank you very much for the constructive criticism! :)

Good ambiance track, like the atmosphere ! :D

shadow-ghost responds:

Aww, thank you so much! :D
