Good! I like the melodic feeling.

Thank you!

Sounds kind of like Marshmello. I really like this song- very catchy.

daluxmusic responds:

Thank you!

I mean i guess

This song is perfect for one of those oddly satisfying compilations you find on YouTube.

daluxmusic responds:

Thank you!

Yo, this is really cool, how did you master it? I'm dying to know how you made it this loud with clarity!

daluxmusic responds:

Hi! Mastering is not to be confused with mixing - mastering is just the final touches in regards to dynamic range and volume. A master will only get as good as the mix is. Mixing is a whole topic on it's own - as for mastering, I first rendered the track with 3dB of headroom (lowered the master fader by 3dB). Then I put it into a new project, and I compared it to other songs with the same genre and/or general feel/mix I'm aiming for. I used a multiband compressor (Maximus), followed by a very slight EQ, a compressor (Fruity Limiter) to even out the top, and then a limiter just as a safeguard to prevent any undesired clipping. It will sound stronger at the cost of feeling less detailed and arguably worse, you might not like it at first but you'll get used to it. It was a lot of trial and error, and I ended up with like six different masters before I settled on this one. Most importantly, remember to use your ears, and not eyes.

I'm no professional, but hope this helps - feel free to ask if you have any other questions :)
