very cool song! vocals and synths are great, only thing is the kick is somewhat loud and compressed
and really pushing the limiter around the mid bass freq's.
i had to turn the volume down on my phones to really enjoy it and avoid fatigue,
but that, unfortunately also caused the dynamics to flatten. :scared:

still well done :tu:

yeah sounds amazing but the kick seems very odd, like it's not deep enough. I guess I just don't like the choice of kick sound. Other than that it's nice if not a little too simplistic sounding. Like maybe another element or two might make it more interesting. Also I am not one to talk about this, but a little more interesting/complicated melody might help it too.

The kick had a bit too much edge indeed, so I just EQ'd it down from that Freq-range. Anyway, thanks for the listens and comments. And well, I wanted it to be simple this time, but lets see, I'm taking all the advice into consideration.

Ok, I further tweaked this song, now when I woke up and listened it with a fresh pair of ears.
I took compressing down quiet a lot, did some vocal editing to get rid of the pops and clicks and some other smaller tweaks too.
I'm liking this a lot more, hope that you as well, cheers! =D

ahh yes. it sounds better, :tu:
but for my own preference the kick/bass levels are still too
kick dominated. but thats just me.
i dunno, chime in here, ATS, what do you think?

Ok, yeah, it's a matter of taste - this is my usual thing, i.e. to let it be kick-dominated. But I might reduce the edges of the kick even a tad more. Anyway, yeah "Ymmärrys" turned out pretty nicely, glad you like it. It's in Finnish and means "Understanding". I shouldn't need to mention I make my music in Reason 10, but why not as I adore this DAW. :wink:
