    Yes yes,
    Got reason 4 a few weeks ago and this is th first proper thing ive made. Its a remix of a classical song called 'moonlight sonata' got abit of a feel to it like high contrasts berlin after dark mix of 'i found u' (im not saying im anything near to high contrast in production skills lol i just mean similar atmosphere). I kno some of th notes are out of tune but you'll have to excuse that for now. Just need some constructive criticism, whether to bother continuing with it and where to go next! Just needs a fresh pair of ears really. Go easy on me tho :p
    Saaaaafe!

    PS also excuse th weird shouty sound at th beginnin, i kno it doesnt sound right lol im tryin 2 find a replacement for it!

    bass is pirtty low and messy in some parts

    if you can fine or have a spectrum analiser its always good to look at your song thru

    after looking at say a high contract song looks where his speaks and where your does
    may help

    can barely hear the kick

    but first attempt you cant be expecting to much keep it up man

    pianos catchy

    thanks for the feedback man, by any chance do you or anyone else know where i can get a spectrum analyser from that can work with reason?

    Don't rely totally on the spectrum analyser, but mostly your ears!!

    The kick is weak as someone pointed out, to get a nice kick try layering some kicks who got different freqs, for example u could use a low lets say 808 kick and find another that has some mid in it.

    The bass sounds very muddy, very much low end there of which some u dont need.

    The ideas are cool tho.

    I suggest u read some stuff about eq-ing! and actually about the whole production thing. There are plenty of tutorials on youtube for reason. Here are a few.
