    Would greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me what they're thinking to my latest track.
    Critical comments are very welcome, need em to improve my production.

    You can listen to the tune here:

    well the into is fucking awesome... the whole tune is pretty rude, just needs to be a bit rougher and filthier on the drop? not sure how to achieve it, maybe a rough saw tooth and some distortion?

    but mate, i was fucking surprised by the quality... has this been mastered?

    boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom

    drop hit me. good tune. don't change it much, maybe fill out some more middle area and try and get the levels higher

    its a bit quiet compared to other tracks in comparison, but great effort

    I'd gladly have the shotgun position on remixing this one (y)

    Thanks for your input fellas.
    To be honest I probably won't change this, just take what I'm learnin' about it and apply it to newer tracks.
    But to answer your questions; it is mastered, but I'm not all that great at it so that's why you'll find it's not fully as loud as it should be and some of the snares don't punch out over the vocal & synths properly. This should improve over time though.

    OH MY GOD!
    That is absolutely beautiful! I have got such a long way to go in mixing down and mastering. Yours sounds so much more professional than mine, so much phatter.

    I take it you'll allow me to keep that and use it as the actual tune? :D
    And d'ya mind tellin' me what program you're usin' to do that?

    Yeah sure you can remix it.
    What do you need? Seperate instruments as WAVs in a zip folder?
