this is a lovely track darek IMO. What cans are you mixing on? have you got any speakers at all ATM?
Is this completely dry IE no reverbs? sounds like you have some delays on there already?
the harmonies and ARPS are all really excellent IMO its got some really great musicality to it
I feel like the drums need more punch and the kick and snare need to punch through the mix little more. Personally i would like to feel a bit more drive form the drums like maybe a more driving hi hat pattern at some point or extra percussion layers but i suppose that would change the feel of the track. seems like the drums dont have the same drive as the synths presently but maybe thats what you are going for
seems like you have all the basic sounds well balanced, but it just needs that final push and mixdown, and in this style of music using the tight kind of reverb/wet fx would probably make a world of difference
Thanks Chris for your lengthy respond, appreciate man - so to answer your question about my headphones, yes I only had to use headphones and they are new to me so don't have good feel for them yet (will take some time), as far as dry sound I meant that there is nothing on master channel - also agree with you on the face that drums need to have more punch and some drive to it as right now they are a bit to static and not moving enough for me - good catch.
I decided to add a bit more melodic development to this WIP:
I like that freedom with no boundaries, no restrictions, no rules setup by somebody else – it's only me and my music.
