Overall the mix is solid for a WIP, i will master in FL Studio with Maximus, boosting the overall dynamics and use W.A Productions "Pusher" to increase dynamics further by booting transients... but this is the overall idea:

meh.... you shouldn't rely on mastering plugins to correct a poorly mixed track. I would take my sweet time getting the balance and dynamics down in the mixing stage, relying on level balancing, equalization, compression, stereo widening (or narrowing) and saturation to do the trick. Multi-band limiters or maximizes like Maximus or Waves L3 and L2 more often than not ruin a mix. If you use them, it's because you don't have access to the individual stems and there is a serious correction that needs to be made, or you need to make fine adjustments, like, hardly noticeable. If you want to increase dynamics, use a transient shaper, or if you've already applied compression, make the attack time a little slower.

No sir, you don't understand, the percussion other than the bass is absent, it will be much more varied and interesting if i build toms and hats kits.

Then i will Master... But i totally get your point, if you would have another listen, or remember it for what it is a WIP as stated, is it palatable?
