    Hi Guys,

    I have been away for a long time.
    Now I'm finally back with a new tune.
    In my opinion my intro needs some rework to make it more exciting, but before I continue I would like to hear some opinion about the mixdown and the main lead.
    thanks!

    update: I made the intro more exciting compared to the previous version.

    Your mixing is getting better!
    The main lead should be split into multiple parts. At least three. Leaving an untouched channel. With the other two channels, pan one channel completely left, and the other channel pan completely right. Highpass the panned channels and the begin adding effects like delay, chorus, and phase to them. Make it to taste. Do not forget three channels is not a limit but a beginning to what you can do with your sound.
    With the amp envelope you can also play with the attack and release more. For example, turn the attack all the way down and the decay almost off. You will get more of a ping sound. As four bars progress start to turn up the decay and the sound will begin to evolve. You can then start to change the attack of the lead to give it that swooping backwards feeling. Next begin to devolve the sound back into its original format or layer it up until it becomes prominent and the sound feels like its going to explode. Then just bring it around to the original sound.
    Keeping a main lead constantly evolving makes the track fun to listen to.
