I think I saw you on this board already ;)

The tune has really nice atmosphere, but poor mixdown. Different tracks have unclear perspective, they are anywhere and nowhere at same time. Try to decide where they are physically placed and adjust pan / reverb for that reason.
Second thing is equalization, each sound blurs the others. Try some strong EQing to give each of them a place to live.

Hi DJ Warmonger,
many thanks for your feedback. It us very useful for me. :-)
My problem with that track was that I mixed it only with headphones.
Now I made a new mix with speakers and I hope that it sounds now better.
I changed the panaorama and the delay of some tracks and made a little bit equalizing.

Here is the new version:

Is it now better for you?

Certainly it's much better in low and mid frequencies. Pads now feel bigger before they got more space.

I think, however, that high-end is still cluttered. There are in general too many high frequencies that don't serve any purpose and are just noises.

Nice and spooky with some interesting textures.
Very good especially for a first attempt at ambient.

I agree with some of the other posts about the mix.
I would simply try lower volume when mixing.

Good Work!

Many thanks for all your help. :-)
I think I will wait some days until I start mixing it again. Sometimes a pause is good.

I am just making some other tracks.
Here is a new one called "new elements":

I made now a new attempt to mix the song.
I tried to cut the unwanted noise with eq.
Here it the new version:

Today I finshed my final mix of the song.
I added now some fx sounds and some new rhythms.
I hope that it is better than the first version.

Here it is:
