    So I worked on mixing this down a bit today. I feel like it sounds better. But still not quite professional. I'm hoping someone can offer some advice on what to do to elevate it a bit. Thanks. Oh and I renamed it "Ravage" due to the little vocal shot I threw in there.

    Hey !
    I really like the whole intro, especially the hats, their panning works well for me ! First ambiant sounds that comes in around 0:22 is a bit overwhelming for me, it sounds quite loud compared to the reste of the sounds.
    I feel like the leads synth leaves a bit of a mess in the high, maybe you could try to EQ it a touch to reduce its influence, this may bring back some of the hats that are a bit lost during the main bit.
    Maybe you could try lowering the volume ofthe snare during the breakdown (3:43 to 4:45), just so it has more impact as it comes back
    The sub sounds nice, and I like all the breaks in there !

    Basically just expanding on what virul mentioned. With the synths, you can generally start low passing between 8-12kHz usually... this removes a lot of the hiss sounds that you currently have, while also opening up the top end to the percussion sounds (hi-hats, shakers, etc). If you feel this takes away presence from the synths however, try adding distortion before the EQ to overcompensate. Also I feel like the kick and snare might be over compressed, which makes them lack punch when the track drops. Hope this helps, but nice work man!
