Pleased to meet you
Hope to guess your name
But what's puzzling me
Is the nature of your game

Interesting tune. Big issues in the low-end, however, are really destroying the overall mix.

Pretty cool! 👍🏼

I’m not a fan of that snare. It stands out too much and is too simplistic for the surrounding sounds.

I’d also remove the sound effects/ambient noises from the first two choruses and try to fix the compression pumping going on throughout.

Thanks for the kind words and constructive criticism everyone. Some excellent input. No question the mix could be better (seemingly always can), and the snare appears to be problematic. Thanks again!

Thanks. I produced that track well over a year ago, and after much learning and better awareness I believe my mixing techniques have improved since then. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I still have the master project file for Abyss, but would be a fun challenge to go back and remix. There’s a lot of atmospheric stuff going on in that song, maybe too much. My tracks are all produced 100% on iPhone/GarageBand by the way. Not intended to be an excuse for a bad mix, just not sure if perhaps my mixing capabilities are somewhat limited when compared to what others are using.

Sorry I was a dick before. Welcome to the forum. Musically interesting. I won't comment on the mix as what needed to be said about it has been said by others.
