    yeah just gave it a listen through my headphones, like the synth, its a little loud tho in the mix, just turn your whole synths out channel down a bit, and tighten up those drums. raise the high end on the snare eq, maybe layer more breaks. heavier compression too maybe?

    good ideas here, song sounds good, just need some drum work.... (always the issue)

    cheers

    .maybe around the 1.32, side chain a compressor and lower down the top end eq on the lead. Maybe sharpen the snare a bit more, sounds a little to hollo or tighten up the reverb... but to be honest, I dig the track, and mastering isn't overly my strong point. Cheers.

    needs a better mixdown just that. Too harsh synths here and there but it's all about that, checking levels on and on... just practicing ;)

    good job, i like the ideas a lot btw... :)

    Thanks guys!
    I'll try n work on the drums, although I do not really understand what 'tightening drums' means.. :s
    As for the mix, in this case it was on purpose, since I was asked to make this track for a dance party ;) so the louder the better :D
    I appreciate yours time of helping me.

    Cheers!

    Cool stuff, especially the halftime bit. Just listen with fresh ears, the drums sound like they're behind the synths, in the background. Loudness has nothing to do with Xmas you know.
