Nice vibes! It sounds like the "New Stuff" project in FL Studio 12 though, talking about the chords that is.

 

I will leave some technical feedback cause no one can get enough of it :)

 

1. The dynamics are off. It sounds like you pushed too hard into a limiter or something. Like all woobely all over the place. This occurs throughout the whole track. I would double check the mastering or maybe you have done some inappropiate compression in your mix.

 

2. The reverb is too slow to kick in and it has too much low mids in them. Send them to another buss and cut the lows from them and set the reverb delay time to something that matches the rythm better.

 

2. Layer the main saw chords with something wide. The whole mix is quite narrow.

 

3. The drums could use some NY compression. They are a bit muffled and doesn't cut through enough.

Sweet. I'll look into this stuff. I'm trying to use pro tools to do the mixing which is kind of hard lol.

Haha xD, why would you use Pro Tools for mixing? Isn't that over complicating things? There is no real need of its managing and workflow unless you are doing huge projects like orchestra stuff imo. Sound is same between DAWs. In any case, when I hear your mixes I kinda think you are over complicating the process. Lots of things are being processed even though they don't need it. Also cutting more lows is also recommended for ye xD.

I'm using pro tools because the class I'm making the song for says I gotta do it. And yeah, I've been cutting out a bunch of lows in the bass line :P

Wait! You are not supposed to cut the lows from the bass (unless you mean simply decreasing certain frequencies by a tad amount)! xD You are supposed to cut it from the chords, leads and etc. Everything that doesn't need stuff going on in the sub 150 Hz area. I really underestimated this and now I usually decrease a lot from the 200-800 Hz area too. That's the region which always muds up fast.

Well... Unless you're going to use a separate sub bass.

Well I noticed that I had the frequencies for the bass were turned up a lot higher than everything else and they were kind of overpowering the rest of the mix. And I am using two different basses. One for normal lows and such and then one for the subs :D

It'll happen. :D I think a certain type of song lends itself to remixing, haha. A song that's got some good ideas but doesn't quite execute perfectly is the type of song that at least I would remix.

 

Wow, this is... freaking epic.

 

Matrix, you will reach far.

Yeah it's really cool. :D And I hope I do!

 

Also, great job on Ena. You've gained quite the following lately! :D
