Having browsed the last 10 or so pages...this one stood out [to me]. Quite liked the vibe and energy. Can tell quite a bit of work went into this. Liked the subtle filter work in the mid-section.

Hard to judge the mixes coming from soundcloud. I'd like to think the mid to high end sounds much cleaner at 320+ bitrate, sans soundcloud compression.

good stuff.

I'm entering a remix contest. I don't want to commit to a mixdown without some kind of feedback: does this track work? It's aimed at being pretty oldschool epic and dreamy, hypnotic and emotional. Any thoughts?

First thing I noticed, bass needs to be compressed. Then I realized your whole mix needs to be tamed. Also your reverb settings aren't correct.

Okay. Reverb is incorrect in what way? Does the structure work?

The percussion is virtually nonexistent, which makes the track drag badly.

In a way that it doesn't sound like you removed the low frequencies from it. It overpowers your mix. And I suppose you're using a single reverb for the whole instrumentarium. You'd generally need at least two verbs with different decay times.
And remember, reverb isn't mandatory for every element of your track.

You mean the arrangement? It's a personal choice.

Some nice floatey sounds and melody work here. It would benefit from ducking the synths more to let the rhythm section through better as it is a bit far back.

I quite like the verb and bass myself.

I would like to thank you for your feedback, and I would like to suggest that making assumptions might be counterproductive. Not everything is reverbed, and you suppose extremely incorrectly. As for the arrangement, yes it is a personal choice, but I am directly asking for opinions on whether it works.

Yeah I'm going to have to do something about that. It's the bassline that came with the remix, unfortunately. Do you have any ideas of what may sound better? I think it's the actual sound itself that's not working well, as opposed to the pattern, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, you're right, I didn't pay much attention to the percussion. Shall remedy that.

Thanks everyone!

Dont like when it goes to G, C to E is nice, try and keep it simple

Drums are way too far back in the mix, you need to fix that first

Okay thanks! I've made some changes. The bass now travels C-E-D, which seems like a nicer progression anyway, and it's a different sound that hopefully doesn't detract in the same way.

Completely reworked the percs--layered claps instead of just one, a new hi-hat section, and some smacky snare. Trying to push the drums more forward in the mix and teasing apart the synths a little more. Will post an updated version later today.

Started messing with windows 8.1 via mac bootcamp so I can play some steam games and I decided to try Cubase 8 Pro on it. The good side is that I'm leaning more towards than logic, I have my subjective reasons tho but anyway yeah Happy Holidays.



Will add more hits and stab like percussion and more melody of course as the track progresses, also reverse sweeps.
