    Hi guys,

    This is the second 'single' (the term single being used here lightly) that I have produced, and I feel it's time to start getting some feedback on my tracks. Specifically, I would like to know how professional my tracks are sounding.

    Also, I'm aware that the tracks are slightly distorted, this only occurs when I upload them to SoundCoud. The original tracks sound clean, so I think I need to lower the output ceiling in Ozone in future, so that no distortion occurs when SoundCloud converts from .wav to .mp3.

    Any improvements or criticisms would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hmm cool ideas! I hear no distortion. What caught my attention is this apparent mud in drums. Tracks sound rather clean but I guess they are not mastered? If so I recommend you to use Pro L mastering plugin which really brings your mix up. Because your mixes sound rather clean they are professional for me, but there is always room for improvement.

    I guess I notice the distortion more because I know what the originals sound like. The tracks are 'home mastered' which basically consists of Ozone 5 on the stereo out. I would like to get them properly mastered but I want to have tracks worth mastering before I pay for it. Unfortunately, I don't have any FabFilter plug-ins at the moment, but they are on my wish list, so I will be sure to check out the Pro L when I get round to it! Thanks!
