hey!i agree with xiris about the mixdown!! i fele the darkness of the mixdown is helping the concept come through but it's a little too much so. It could have more room to breathe between the elements for sure, i feel it could benefit from a nicely dialed in reverb to put the track into more of an open space
Id make a return track for the reverb, send an element of the track to it that sounds the most dry and in need of "space" to be put into in order to not sound so dry/dark, dial in the reverb as perfect as you can to have it sit as natural as you can, you want it to sound like it absolutely needs the reverb. then i would experiment heavily with sending different elements to the reverb in different amount to see what the best balance of reverb throughout the elements could be to my own ears. I usually end up having a small,medium and large reverb send set up using the same plugin/algorithm to create the illusion that any element that has reverb on it sound like its in the same space as the other elements with reverb. sends also help to drastically reduce CPU usage because u will only ever use 3 reverb plugins and there is no limit to how many sounds you can send to them. Hope this helps!!!hey!
thanks for your feedback ! you mean reverb to the whole concept or only for some elements ?
