Hey guys, I have a new track for you to critique...a retro/nostalgic number called 'Sunshine Arcadia'. I guess you could classify it as ambient/electro/synthwave? As always your feedback is welcome.

A very very good track, good mood, I especially enjoyed the drums cadence.

My Feedback

Music - 7.5
Instruments - 7
Performance - 8
Mix - 5

Overall - 6.875

Comments: Mix is very muddy. Where is the upper mids? Volume is also too soft. Snare sounds like somebody tapping on a milk carton. The main sound is way too loud for rest of track. Needs some serious remixing. Musically, quirky but hard to really make out much. Some of the synth sounds are so buried you can barely make them out.

I had another go at creating a bit of seperation - I panned the synth parts in the background hard left and right, which seemed to help. Plus I made some eq adjustments. I realise this shit isn't up to the standards of what you normally get here, but I'd appreciate another listen....if you think it's more or less ok, i'll have a go at adding more automation to the lead parts.
