I recently made this track, however i feel like something is still missing, I don't have any title either for this track. If anyone has an idea about something to add or maybe something to fix please tell me, I appreciate it a lot.

My Feedback

Music - 4
Instrument - 8
Performance - 6
Mix - 6

Overall - 6

Comments: Background pad at intro is too muffled. Mix is uneven. Some parts too loud, some parts too soft. Musically, it's stagnant. It's just the same riff over and over and over. A top line would be nice. It isn't horrible but it needs a lot of work.

For me, its missing variation from the main riff/chord progression...for instance a new section that provides a bit of tension before returning back to main chord progression. Sound design is great, vibe is great, single shots adding a bit of variation are also great.

Be careful with too much white noise, use it sparingly. It occupies frequencies that can fight with the other elements you have. The lead is mixed too hot (i.e. too loud). Its overpowering the other elements and seems slightly too compressed or saturated or something similar.
Same with pads. Don't think,"ooh, there's something missing, I should add an element" and then reach for a pad that starts to fight with everything else in terms of frequencies. Pan the pad or turn it right down. Sometimes less is more.
And the arrangement: for the 1st 1m45, its the same melody and chord. You need to change that up to not bore people. Change one note in the melody, drop the melody for a few bars and let the bass shine etc etc. There's tons of things you can do to keep the familiarity of repetition but keep it interesting. Daft Punk are masters at this.

Thanks for everything, learn a lot from them. I guess I need a lot more efforts and time to spend on. Once again thanks, they are really helpful.
