I think you're probably right about the compression. It doesn't sound particularly bad, but this track is WAY louder than anything else I've played this week. Mind you, you probably don't need to worry too much about headroom from a DR perspective, as the genre dictates this style of levelling. I guess the level is more noticeable when this track is played as part of a playlist alongside Erik Satie or AES Dana :wink:

There was a small break at 0:50 where I was thrown off the rhythm a little. I don't think it was a skip or anything wrong with the audio. It just sounded a little unnatural. I liked the overall feel of this track. All the synth components sounded great, and I liked the snare sound.

Good work :)

Groovy as fvck!

I mean really groovy. :tu:

Maybe overcompressed but it doesn't sound bad.
You may think you can fly ... but you better not try

Thanks as always Seismic.

I think part of the issue is I was trying to "master" as I mixed. Schoolboy error. I will leave it a week or so and revisit for another mix down.

I do know exactly what you mean by the unnatural break. It's a weird one that. It has sounded unnatural all along but it just shouldn't; there's no change in notes etc to cause the weirdness. Part of the issue is I tried to correct it, which has obviously made it worse. Another schoolboy error.

I have no sense of myself anyway, i`m Borderline Personality Disordered, so nothing to lose. I usually just take on the mannerisms of the person closest to me, so no worries. :party: :lol: :wink:

It did seem to be appropriate.
It has however made me hungry, if you catch my drift :hihi:
