Hey guys. Here is the latest trap track that I am working on. It is in progress and I haven't properly mixed or EQed it yet. However, I wanted to get some constructive feedback while I work on it further. The samples used are from Night of the Living Dead. Thanks in advance for listening:.

I had to turn down my headphones at the intro with just the hihat and piano so I took the liberty of downloading the track to look at it in Youlean. You pushed the loudness so hard that you reached -0.3 LUFS short term max and -2.3 LUFS integrated.

To put that into perspective, Skrillex's Bangarang, one of the loudest commercial masters you'll ever hear, reaches around -3.6 LUFS short term max and -5 LUFS integrated. It takes some skill in sound design, arrangement, and mixing to push levels that high and still resemble something like acceptable audio.

You need to back right off that loudness to prevent everything sounding smashed to bits.

Thanks for that feedback! I really appreciate. I have adjusted the loudness. I hope that it is better than previously.
