    Sup! Newbie here looking for some feedback on this tune i'v been working on for a couple of weeks.
    I'll make sure to return whatever feedback given to your own stuff.

    Cheers for spending precious time listening to this!

    Really nice track mate!

    I have two criticisms however.

    First the break seems to drag a little. I think the section between 0.22 and 0.44 is unnecessary myself, others may disagree though!

    And the sound quality of the track over all seems quite low/slightly distorting. Is the clip at a low sample rate?

    Cheers for the input!

    I'v been on and off about that intro section myself.
    I was going for some sort of double buildup but it does get a tad tedious and pull the pace of the track off. I'll test taking it away!

    About the quality, it should be 44,1 khz.
    I'v had some mixing issues with certain sounds clipping so just put a limiter on the master which may have caused this.
    I'll check it out more though thanks again for feedback!

    Wow thats really cool i like it a lot, nice vocals, the growling bass and the ambient pads / melody really fits well together, cool breaks (i think the one that starts at 0:22 is pretty cool), drums are nice, but.... yeah the quality sounds really low i would love to hear that track with a clean, crisp sound.

    This is really good. The quality of the track is a bit low though, is it 320kbps? Anyway I liked it! Is this your first track?

    nice vibes.


    mix is very muddy, a waaay over compressed, get the compression and limiting off your master and redo the mixdown, tweek the EQ to give ur sounds a bit more space, then use gentle limiting if you need more volume

    Cheers this is really helpful feedback. I'm very much in the learning curve of mixing and this stuff is golden! I'v had issues with the volume being too low, most likely due to my muddy mix then I assume.

    Great that people enjoy it even though the quality is horrible, i'll work on getting it down clean and do a propper mixdown.
    It is my first track that i'm at least somewhat happy with and confident enough to make public. I'm not new to making music however, but dnb.

    Really nice vibes man. Only real issue is the mixdown.. Did you use the Limiter in your DAW? Personally I prefer to boost in a seperate program, others don't, but I get better results when I do it separately. Would def concentrate on the mixdown before you attempt to boost

    lots of wicked elements in here, the bass is muddying up the mix and overwhelming the drums. try cutting out any frequencies that arent essential, and make the hi's brighter on the drums. the programming of the generally very good however! Nice work
