Richard, I've only listened to this track on headphones. I'm mesmerized. Maybe a bit more bass (just notch the volume up a bit on that reese thing) could work, but overall you put emphasis on all the right elements in the right places. I love how the chords sit on top of the mix demanding focus and setting a brilliant mood without taking over the whole thing.
Not trying to have a go here - but I'm just baffled how the quality of your productions seems to differ so much at times. This one is lovely. Very well done. I've been a fan for a while, but if you keep up quality like this... I'm gonna put this on repeat for a while.
Cheers Mat, yeah my consistency is not good, but I'm making a super hard effort to address this - tbh I'm absolutely reliant on feedback here.
I will try and get the bass up a little in volume (wont touch eq unless people say otherwise), and make a few slight additions, such as a reverse piano hit running up to each piano hit in the intro just to smooth it some.
Also looking to get the vocals done properly into a song as it were, but if not, will leave as is.
Since rebuilding my PC I lost all my IK Multimedia dynamics and so only use Cubase dynamics and a couple of freebee's. I do wonder if my sound would improve with decent dynamics plugs-ins, but there's a lot of choice out there, from Slate to PSP Vintage warmer?
A lot of my sound is now by the Roland JD XA, I find it fun to work with, but the sound is fairly raw without high end plug-ins perhaps?
