I'm loving the melody on this! It seems random but consistently dark. I think that it might be a little to muddy in the middle, but that could also be the result of the $20 headphones that I'm listening on. I dig all the instrumentation and the varied sections. I like how "un-looped" it feels. Good stuff yet again!

transsister v2:

 

i dig the pad sound and melody, very bittersweet. i think some of the retrigs are a bit OTT as others have said, but only a little.

 

burulyn:

 

again i like the melody and pads, though mix wise i'd put the pads up just a touch and the melody lower.

 

same again with the retrigs, they demand a lot of attention, especially the kick being retriggered so quickly and often. i prefer the drums in the later section where they feel a little more fine tuned.

God, it's been a fucking crazy month. This past week I started finally getting around to mixing a pile of tracks I've been sitting on for a while. Hoping to compile a bit of a release by the end of summer. 

 

This one is a little outside my wheelhouse, but it was fun to make. More on the way~

Melodies and bassline in particular are good, but the whole thing is a little loose for my taste. I think it could use work but that bassline is nice and complete feeling to me. Keep it up, hope you can get to your goal for a summer release of stuff :)

I really like the 1st half but unfortunately it seems to get a bit lost for me after that? The melody, bass and counterpoint are all nicely done (although I'd use a bit more reverb but that's down to taste). Track develops nicely but then I'm not sure where it goes, not that it's bad but it lost direction maybe?

Thanks guys, I definitely agree that the second half kinda of runs out of steam. Still trying to figure out where I want it to go or if I should just lop off the last minute or so...

Nah, squidges are good, mix is good, I mean the whole thing louder. I had to turn up quite a bit to have a good listen.

Oh yeah once the rest of the tracks are mixed I'm going to master them all in the same session to bring em up. I'm currently rocking 6-8dB of headroom on these to leave room for compression on the masters.

That's purty pretty man. I think the main synth could maybe be dirtied up a bit, but I like that kinda shit. Love the bells and such.

Hi...

 

So i quite like the drum sequencing in this... particularly in the second half of the track. I like the mangling stutters at the start but feel that there could be more variation in these after the first time it happens. i dig the melody and arrangement but would appreciate the lead a bit more if it was a bit warmer... some tape like overdrive or something like that (as cliched as that is). I also think some samples of field recordings somewhere, straight or DSP'd would add a bit of depth (but that is to my taste). Great little tune.
