Ok, so, I slightly edited "Wise." Mainly on headphones though, and a very quick check-up on speakers, and seems fine.

Hi

I'm not sure what to think about how I should reply when you remind me you are an amateur. Does "one who loves" a thing need to be treated differently? Assuming you aren't like someone on Drooble who ask for feedback then abuse anyone who doesn't say they are the greatest things since sliced Kanye...

Devil's Inside:

Now I will be honest and say that I am not turned on by long periods of a blam splat drum combo as to me I like narrative. I am waiting for the story you are trying to tell me. The title indicated one but the track is unclear.

Also unclear in that you have tried to jam almost all the elements into the one small space which makes it hard to get separation. Kinda like going to the pub and all the girls there look exactly the same, same clothes, same drink etc. You're hard pressed on which is the good one for you. So you either choose none or grab any. Which in effect makes her the booby prize - literally in this case it seems :hihi:

Work on looking at a) what the musical narrative is and how you can develop that story over time, b) how to separate the instruments. Seeing you will still put them all in the same space (under C3) then work on giving each an identity which is by focusing on the differences. Find what makes each sound have a unique character (hint that is not all in the chest, sorry I mean 60-100Hz range but in mids or highs) and boost that. Perhaps even roll off where that sound is not important (hint usually in the 60-100Hz range). Solo'd it may sound a bit ick but together you should hear a lot more clarity for each part so overall your mix has more punch.

I hope that helps (BTW it took me years to learn both of these things)
