I like the quirky pads at the beginning and the chord progression. The synth at :09 is nice, too, although I think the kick at :20 has way too much treble in the equalizer and reverb in general. Do you notice how the rest of the texture gets really quiet and distorted at 1:35 during the kick rolls? You can fix that with some more mixing tools, especially compression for the kick, tighter filtering work, and maybe some stereo widening on the pads if you’re feeling ambitious. The texture comes together well at :43, but at this point the sloppy mixing is even more apparent by the distorted drums and overly saturated texture. I’d suggest cutting way back on the reverb, especially on the synths, and compressing the drums a lot more to make them sound sharper. The composition is pretty good - a little underwhelming and repetitive - but my main concern here is the mixing. Still, I like the sound design, atmosphere, and rhythmic content of this one. Keep at it, Juliobee! :)

Thanks for the feedback! this was kind of one of my old pieces so there isn't too much synth variety and customised design, but thanks for the feedback!

Pretty good work here! There is a cut off filter on the entire track tho keeping all high frequencies out. Maybe take that off or automate it to be completely off when 0:40 hits.

I can see crazy potential here tho! Just there is something muting the high end.

juliobee responds:

OMG F-777 I’m a massive fan! Thanks! And yeah you’re right, I did leave that low pass filter on, although when i took it off there was a slight ring that I didn’t like, but thanks anyway!

very modest and soft. remind me of some 90s stuff. nice chords // scales used. EQ could use some work in the bass heavy part, but the soft introduction was 'cute'.... in a way

then the ending after the bass part : great melody!

juliobee responds:

Thanks so much! I'll keep that in mind for my next song.
