I Need Help Correcting My Demo Tracks

    okay so my headphones broke, not that those are any better way to mix, but they at least got me in the ball park. now im using my laptop speakers, but they really dont do much.

    i uploaded a few tracks i plan on using for an upcoming demo album but i need lots of feed back on what i can do to make them even better, all ideas are welcome

    I know that the drums are faded out on most if not all, im trying to get this sorted out, the problem is that on my laptop speakers they actually sound too loud as they are now, but by burning CD's and testing them on my stereo i found they really aren't even there... so im mixing them the best way i know how, compressors, limiters, the works.

    some of the guitars i feel the same way, but it seems i turn them up and it drowns out my bass.. turn my bass up and im back to the drums... leading me back to the guitar, and the cycle repeats until i have this distorted mess.

    i never had this problem before! when i would use the samples from the site i hardly ever had to mess with the EQ to get the sound i wanted, all i had to do was pan, set the EQ for the instrument (Guitar - treble, drums - High def, Bass - amplified bass) and do some slight compression.

    now I've started to work on my own sounds with MIDI and I've tried everything, but i cant get that sound that i want. about the only thing that agrees with what I'm doing is the bass but it's not like you would hear it over all the other junk.

    I don't believe that it's all that relevant to say that I'm using Magix Music Maker 15, but I'm pretty desperate for some help. even the smallest thing is helpful.

    Can't you connect your laptop too your hifi and do your mixing that way? At least it would be better than the laptop speakers.....

    Pick up a pair of M-Audio AVs like AV-20 or AV-30. They're cheaper ($100) and they work awesome. They have a aux connect in so you can hook up your laptop to them and the response is pristine. I mainly use them on my PC for producing but I connect them to my laptop for mixing sets. You can't go wrong with a pair of these babies.
