    My first time using an exciter. I think ive finally nailed getting the Bass and kick to sit with each other. Any advice on improving would be appreciated. I tried to give this a bit of an oriental sound to anyway here it is.

    I think the synth is away too much man, maybe it would bee coler with some effects on it
    think it would do with some reverb

    my oppinion is that u need to define one lead ... cause ur leads are overlooping eachother ... than ur track will sound more clearer and professional. NIce first intro to the drop

    Exciters are useful if you need to add sparkle to your top freqs, but I wouldn't
    add it just for the sake of it.

    It helps when your target audience will be using small speakers, but don't get
    'too excited' if your music is destined for club speakers etc, people's ears will bleed!

    Thanks yea i could hear how it could destroy my ears when i tried turning iup the high end. i mix with pretty small speakers lol.. nd headphones just to make sure it sounds decent on both. Ill keep this in mind though.

    probably my favourite lol does it show? :)

    Ive balanced out the synth a little as that seemed to be the main problem in the mix also ive added effects and make the drums a little more pleasant. what do ya think peeps?
