New track that I'm working on. Not quite sure if the intro fits or how to end the song.

Edit: Added 2nd revision

Just added a revised version with some changes. The mix should sound better now.

I've listened to both versions. I prefer the revised version except for the first minute or so. I think the bass is slightly better defined during the opening minute on the original. It's a close call. When the bass changes to the longer, more sustained notes, I think the revised version wins.

Good work :)

Thanks! I'll definitely make those changes right away.

this comment is for the wip version:

nice clean mix at the start on here. it reminds me of early naked eyes.
love the bass at 1:34. great evolution.
then, however from about 2:21 to 3:09 i think the arped Epiano
sound comes over a bit "strained" to my ears.
Other than that enjoyed :tu:

that said, revised version is favored :party:

Thanks! By straining do you mean it's too bright or loud?

not sure, it just sounds distorted and over limited?

I don't have a limiter on it but I do have an exciter. Is it the high frequencies that are straining?

listening again. narrowing it down to 2:53 - 3:09 is where i hear it most. i cant explain it
more than it just doesn't sound clear in the mix. it might even be several
sounds all going on at once squashed together muddying it up. I'd cut back
compression and drop the level on some of the other sounds to give it more
breathing room. :wink:

I added a second revision. Tried to narrow down what the problem was. Hopefully this one fixed the muddiness problem. :)
