    tx for sharing your track here grim.

    It's not a genre that I know anything about.


    But since you asked for thoughts/criticisms/advice...

    Like many listeners, badgers have a short attention span. Slow filter sweeps are good but remember to throw in a few surprises occasionally; like that HH at about 2.21; which lifts that section nicely.

    Hello Greg,

    welcome to soundpeak

    I enjoyed the track.
    I personally think, the drums are too much in the background and could need some more presence.

    Thanks for sharing and looking forward to more music from you.

    Kind regards,
    alphatonez

    nice one! i think you've got a track there but it sounds like the engineering needs work? i'm listening through senheisers but i can hear a lot throught them
    did you cutoff the sub bass? i'd play with the eqs and fx and do a precise mixdown and get it ready for pre master...

    i am certainly not an expert in this genre either.
    the huge sounding synth pad movement is nice and full.. but many many other elements seem to be missing in my opinion.
    the drums seem extremely small next to such huge pads. i hear no active bass part. i'm sure there are elements in the bass frequencies. but it does not distinguish itself.
    to my ears i hear a partially done piece. but a piece that could have HUGE potential.
    we have a chord structure provided by our massive synth parts. i would just dump the electronic drum sound all together.. and find a good drummer.
    i would cut out the entire bottom of the freq of the mix and let a real bass live in there and move around... get groovy...
    i would find either a vocalist or a lead instrument to become the voice of the piece... we have a nice rhythm... we just need the rest...

    realize... i dont have my studio set up... i'm listening on a shitty laptop... my reference is horrible and for this i apologize.
