Hello. I haven't posted here in a while. This is one of those songs I feel it's acceptable to release in it's present state. I may add more to it.

https://soundcloud.com/chemeleon/led-to-sleep

Sometimes I listen and the 'acoustic guitar' sound at the beginning is a little painful, but I'm not sure if that's just a niggle or something I should deal with...

EDIT: Alright so remastered version is up. This shouldn't be so harsh on the ears, but it is a lot quieter than the previous version.

My Feedback

Music - 5
Instruments - 8
Performance - 7
Mix - 6

Overall - 6.5

Comments: It's too loud for starters. The whatever it is is annoying the way it bounces back and forth. I have no idea what you're singing as the vocals are buried in all the noise. Musically, doesn't appeal to me at all. Seems kind of all over the place with very little structure. What genre is this considered? I will say this much, I don't think I've ever heard anything like this. It certainly isn't mundane and ordinary. So points for originality.

I actually quite like it but boy-oh-boy is it loud!

Adjust all the compressors and limiters and get that volume down to a natural level - Try listening to some other music for volume reference.

I'll agree with it being just a bit too overwhelming, volume/dynamics-wise, but I really like the piece :tu:

Ok, here's the thing. I use Ozone 8's maximizer way too much. It's a bad habit I need to get out of. Working on it, will post the results later today.

Cheers everyone. I updated it with a slightly softer version for now. I'm not as happy overall with it but I'll keep working on it...

Remastered version is up. Let me know how it compares if you've got some time. The latter version is burned into my skull now, I can't unlisten to it... :)

I'm using a fairly decent surround system and a seemingly broken pair of beats studio headphones to master this. I need a decent pair of headphones that I can use to master to a reasonable degree and to listen on the go. Any suggestions welcome there also.
