    Hi guys,

    I finished my latest tune, I will rework the kick and snare because they do not have enough low end and punch.

    Besides that, what do you think? I am especially interested in hearing your opinions on the mix and master part. Does it sound good?

    Any constructive critizism is appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Hi there thx for the feedback.

    The problem is (but not for much longer) that I am using guitar WAV samples, because when I record my own guitar it sounds like shit. So today I intend on buying shreddage2, which will add a completely new level to my guitar sounds. Therefore there is not much I can do about the guitars in this track, the samples are already distorted and for the purpose of mixing I wouldn't saturate them any more.

    I am using FL Studio.

    By the way, I have changed the drums just now and re-uploaded it. The kick has a much bassier punch now!

    i see. it's just a question of taste, i just like guitars more artificial grungy, yours sound quite natural and clean. anyways, good tracks, go on producing.

    pls comment on my track as well, esp. on mixing/mastering .. thx.

    thanks apostata! I use NI maschine studio, komplete kontrol umtimate 10, and several additional plugins. quite basic setup, far from professional studio. if you like 'LETS RIDE' check out this one ..

    The snare can be more punchier imo, sounds a bit like it doesnt really fit now in the mix. Bass sounds cool! That Metallica kinda middle part with the guitar is awesome :) Maybe add another layer of bass to spice it u and keep it interesting?

    Thanks, yea I intend to rework the snare, the bass with the guitar part is also a good idea. Will get to it tomorrow.
