This is very fresh(basic pun intended), so don't give it too much thought.
I'm just looking for a tip.
I need to tame the main synth a bit, because it's overtaking the mix too much, but I don't want it to sound too quiet and lose it's impact. Not really sure how to go here.
I have split it's chord lines into two channel instances (low, typical sidechained bassline, and the rest is high notes) to get some flexibility, I have cut both ends of the frequency spectrum to a degree not to lose too much detail. The guitars have recieved a slight eq boost on some frequencies, as well as slightly boosted transients.
All tips very welcome.
Side note: this little thing took 40 minutes to export
Ignore the last 30 seconds, I forgot to close the filter on the bassline.
The synth appears at 1:40
EDIT:Here is an older version, before changes mentioned above, and with much larger cutoff range, for comparison:
Man, those chords progression are very familiar to my ear - don't recall by who but definitely know around.
I like that freedom with no boundaries, no restrictions, no rules setup by somebody else – it's only me and my music.
