    Well switching to mac is always good :D

    I ditched windows in january and haven't looked back, would definitely suggest going for a budget monitor setup eventually though! Best decision i ever made tbh.

    Ooo yeah man that guitar is smooth! I reckon you brought it out a bit to suddenly though, try bringing it out with a hi or low pass filter.

    The drop is distorting a little swell, might want to bring some levels down.
    Overall good ideas though and Im really appreciating the experimentalness (if thats a word) of the track!

    Would love it if you could take the time to give me some feed back on this http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php/161621-Phazy-Ilya !

    Cheers

    Cool track, this is something different. That guitar is great and works really well! I think the mids of the bass are very rumbly and that ruins the track a bit imo as the other stuff are really cool.

    But if I just look away from production I think this is nice man!

    thanks man! yeah mids are a bit clunky thats why i low passed the main riff, went a bit overboard on chorus which made the levels abit uppety on the right and left channels, oh well!
