    I have this little problem I can't get my tunes sound loud enough without clipping so I always have to leave them a bit too quiet.
    Sook, if you listen this and find something what could cause that, I'd like to know what it is :)

    before ive had a chance to listen
    i can give a few tips...
    firstly dont stack your tracks with to many sounds
    that occupy to many of the same frequencies
    overlaps obviously cant be helped....
    but if you have 5 or six sounds that all peak
    at 500 hz the rest of your track will sound quiet...
    there is only so much energy you have to play with in
    each track...
    roll of kicks under about 60 hz... gives you some
    more room and that way they wont interfere with subs..
    compress or even better multiband compress your beats
    bass etc....
    that way you can take the edge of some of the peaks
    and transients give your self a little more head room....
    lots of ppl limit or multi band limit......
    i dont like this as i find it crushes the track and
    destroys it dynamically...but just depends on the sound
    your after... you should be able to achieve better results
    with compression... might take a little longer...
    but well worth the effort..
    lastly process your drums (with the possible exception
    of cymbals) and bass in mono...

    but will have a listen tonight...
    sorry about the delay...
    so busy last couple of weeks

    after listening...
    i definitely like the feel of the track
    the bass is a little boomy
    most of you volume problems are
    comming form the bass...
    it always help to use a spectrum analyzer
    on your master bus... that way you
    can see where everything sits in your track...
    you can also use it to reference other tracks you think are mixed well...
    with this one nearly everything sits under 500hz...
    need to flesh the track out a bit more above that area
    drums probably need to be layered up some more
    feel a little week sometimes
    are you using single hits..?
    or breaks...?
    or a combination of the two....?
    but really like your sound man
    bring on the neuro darkness...

    Thanks for the comments, I really appreciate you had time to give some tips and stuff... In this tune I used combination of both, breaks and single hits. Usually I layer some break so that you can barely hear it to get some groove.
    I know this sounds a bit porridge, I have just recently started to learn and find tips about all that tech stuff.
    Well... I'm gonna keep posting some tunes in the future, I have couple of tracks under work.

    oh, I guess my english ain't so good, that's because I'm from finland and qualified from a vocational school. Don't rape me.
