Description : Tried to make a track with minimum compression and keeping the sound less loud than my normal prodcutions. Let me hear what you think of the balance of th track. Still learning how to mix down a sound so it could very well changed for the better.

Well, my ears tell me you did a very good job! I'm not so much of a techy type to be able to give you more detailed advice. I usualy use slight dynamic compression but only when i feel it really works and it's also hard to make comparisons cause I produce quite different sort of music within which the compression actions might well be a mixed bag. All in all, well done my friend!

Well, I can't even come close to giving the kind of technical advice you got from Crucethus. And, I'm the last one who who'll be commenting on how to improve a mix. Mine are usually kind of muddy I think. Its a lot of work to place each instrument in its unique position within the sound spectrum and set pan positions and use reverb etc. to position things in the soundstage. Not to mention ensuring interest through dynamic range. But, if I had any advice it would be to take a look (listen) to the lower frequency range in the track. I think you could clean it up a bit, separating the frequency range for the kick and the bass in particular. There was kind of a continuous "booming" sound and things weren't as clean and distinct as I think they could be. Generally, I liked the track quite a bit, though. I have tried and failed many times to make a track like that. :)

The thing about making music is that the more you learn..the more you realize you know jack shit about prodcuing hahaha...At least that is what I found out for me. So many things to consider. But after watching a lot of videos and trial and error you become better babyste by babystep. Glad Im not the only one :p

There is a lot to like about this mix. Have you experimented with expanding the pan a little bit and using a lighter Dynamic compression. For example when the "do you wanna dance" kicks on it's great, stereo panned and in your face. But that synth stab comes in and it's just kind of in the center and has no energy compared to that phrasing. (and that's the phrase you want to make you feel the energy of the track. Try splitting the stab and hard panning both channels. On one channel add just a small slight touch of distortion. You will be then emulating a hardware unit we used (back in the day)called an audio exciter. For some reason doing this would brighten the sound and make it more interesting. You made a very nice comment on my latest track "You always know how to maximize the minimal sound"
To create that minimal sound I use a hell of a lot of subtle harmonics and sub sounds and barely audible phrasings and percussions that just push the main theme or melody along.
I do like how you build the percussion in this one. But when you use a synth phrase try using multiple phrasing to create something bigger. Even take that synth stab and raise it a third or a fifth (chord structure) and pan it right lower in the mix and you will hear something interesting.
Anyhoo, love where you're going with this.

Thanks for your advice. You definetly know how to mixdown a track and can learn from you a lot. I will definetly try out your advice and put it in my track. I am still a beginner when it comes to mixing and your remarks really help me out.

Looking at the waveform the output level is fine M.H
I enjoyed the track,has some good sections and put together very well.I believe it is lacking a little with dynamics in places but that is part of the mix and easily rectified.Sounds a lot cleaner than previous tracks.Take care.

Description : Big thanks to Justze3 who released the four loops to his drake ovo style piece because he didn't plan to finish it, challenge accepted. I would also like to thank LankFrampard for the extra drum loop and av3 for the sample "trapped" which gave a lot of extra feel to the song.

This is what you get when i try to make a Free Radical song.
In the end, it does not sound like something I've ever heard from him.
But it was, after all, a try.
Thus, it is not completely different, ´cause i have not sung this time.
And it is electronic music but .....

However, I like the resulting song. Hope you too. Only 1 sample was used here - Anubis-Anubis-Loop all the synth´s are played by me and i added some drumsounds with powerdrums2 played by myself Comments are sure welcome.

Description : First attempt at Trance I feel is good enough to publish, its much harder than it sounds. I'm actually still surprised at my ability to sausage-ify my tracks without actually increasing the levels like I intend. Rip. -- Used the usual suspects of the ES2 Hybrid Synth for a majority of the sounds, with the ESX24 Sampler being used for the reverb-y Marimba effect and the 'choir' section. FM8 is also used for the Pads, and Ultrabeat for the drums. Listening back, I think the high end is a bit too loud and/or a bit too noisy, so that will be edited some time later, but other than that I don't think it was too bad for my first attempt (actually fourth, but the other 3 were not published). -- Download will be available after the contest ends (judging begins today, Tuesday 28 June).
