Hiya everyone! This is the last thing I've been working on and would love to hear your thoughts!

This is the first time playing around with reverb and those bass-mid-high knobs so hopefully everything sounded alright. I would be interested to hear some thoughts on the bells towards the end portion of the song and whether it was too busy; my intention was to build it up and take slowly take it away to flow into the conclusion of the song!

Feel free to send me your stuff too! I would be happy to share you my thoughts! :D

Question: Do you have a limiter on the output buss? The kick seems a bit distorted and the overall volume is quite loud. Bell at the end sounds fine. Would have liked a little more variation in the piece instead of just the same riff played over and over. But that's just personal preference. Of course at a little over a minute, piece could probably be expanded anyway. Just some thoughts.

Yeah I didn't use a limiter and now that you mention it, I could have worked on the volume a bit. I'll do my best to figure out ways to expand and add variation! Thanks a lot for the feedback, means a lot!

I think it is clipping or distorted and too loud overall. The basic groove is not bad but, as wagtunes mentioned, you should try to develop things more musically.

100% agree!

Mix needs work in terms of the dynamic control and the interesting raw ideas need development.
