wow! nice song! the drums are the only thing i don't really like about this. besides that it's a really good song. what's the bpm?

KingCamdenTheGreat responds:

Glad u like the track. The BPM is 140

Wow, this is insanely good.

A word on drum mixing:
At the part where the drums come in, the sidechain is just too much. It throttles the song down into something that hurts your ears from the pulse. After that, though the song is perfect untol the drop. The drop is really good, I just don't like the snare sound. Thats all.

Truly, you are amazing, keep it up.

KingCamdenTheGreat responds:

Thanks. I’m glad you enjoyed the track

This is pretty good! The white noise fx and cymbals are really piercing though, you might want to tone them down some. There's a good amount of bass though, and that's always nice.

Okay, so a quick note about mixing. It seems like you wanted it so that each and every element shined. That sounds good in theory, but in practice... it doesn't make for a good sound. The trick is realizing that the listener's focus can only be on one thing at a time, so only one thing at a time really needs to shine. I say that because in the drops, it seems like you have a lot of background elements that are covering over the other main elements, and also because of the before mentioned cymbals. Instead, try to push things backward and pull things forward in the mix by using reverbs, delays, choruses, flangers, phasers, etc. to push things back, and distortion, compression, limiting, multiband/OTT, etc. to bring things forward. (Idk if you have access to fx like that in GarageBand. I use Ableton, and I've never used GarageBand, so I don't really know. If it accepts VSTs, there are a bazillion vsts out there that work well for mixing.)

Pretty good overall.
