Nothing in the mids-> highs sounds harsh on my setup.
Good sound selection imo. Obviously needs drumkit, but it's a wip so yeah...
I can hear at the 1:00 mark, the plucks pushing the pad down. Either you have it side-chained, or it's your limiter. Maybe a 5-10% gain reduction on the pads might solve this, and keep them from being as overbearing on the mix.
If you haven't already, might make use of some subtle side-chaining from kick-> pad, so the kick has an easier time cutting through. Might opt for a low attack/release on the sidechain compressor, as to not add any pump to the pad.
It's also a good idea to center your bass. You don't have to, but bass frequencies usually carry much less directional content with them, so panning it to one side or another un-evenly distributes the highest energy carrying frequency (uses up more of one channel's headroom) with no real benefit. It also sounds a bit unbalanced in my headphones. (more ok on desktop speakers)
-edit- Listening through a second time, I can hear that it starts off centered and gets panned left. To me it sounds weird. But I guess I can understand what you were goin' for.
Great start imo. Melodic content is pretty neutral around the 1:20 -> 2:20 mark though, and I feel it would benefit from some more progression there.
Startin' to dig your more recent vibes. Gl man.
Hey, thanks dude! Thanks for analysis and advices, i've noticed the bass, was experimenting with widening filter but i will turn that off probably. Did some sidechaning on pad, i will adjust it more to make some more space for kick. And i agree that it need more subtle progression in 1:20-2:20 mark. Thanks again for listening. Glad you like it!
