Help me to understand, what i need to do for approve. I worked with quality and ask some people that said me all good. But i’ve got hard reject.

Overuse of reverb and bad mix.

Oh.What means bad mix? Bad choice of instruments or there are some resonances here? Or is it bad in all aspects?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Audio mixing is the process by which multiple sounds are combined into one or more channels. In the process, a source’s volume level, frequency content, dynamics, and panoramic position are manipulated or enhanced. This practical, aesthetic, or otherwise creative treatment is done in order to produce a finished version that is appealing to listeners.

Hope this helps :wink:

Hi Kvazarius

Actually the song is not bad. But like Audioland mentioned already, it could be the mix.
What I notice is - in addition to the already mentioned (over)use of reverb - the compressor in the master channel. Sometimes it “pumps” a bit. If you want to use heavy compression that’s not wrong at all. But probably it works better if you do it in bus-channels. For example: One compressor for all drums, one for the bass and so on.
You still can use an additional compressor in the main channel though. But this way you could use it more subtly. But that’s just an idea. And most important: Don’t give up :slight_smile:

Nice track, It sounds good to me… I’m not sure about reverb, . I have a few ambient tracks with similar reverb presence in my portfolio.
Maybe I’m a little bit more accurate with some melodic development.
IMHO it sounds a little bit repetitive…
Good luck!

To me it sounds beautiful. The mix is good, reverb is great, i dont know what the other guys taking about…it’s at least better than some on audio jungle already has approved.
The bass may be a bit loud, but it doesn’t cover up anything else so…If you ask me, It should be up to the buyer. Good luck next time :confused:

You have a big problem with balance between instruments. Your kick and sub bass are crushing the mix. It sounds like your system maybe lack low frequencies and you give to much gain here because of that. Always use a pro reference mix to compare. A frequency analyzer can help too (try Voxengo SPAN). It sounds a bit too much compressed (flat) to me too. Try a better balance between instruments and give each instrument a place to peak in the spectrum more than the others. You should have a flat enough frequency response and dynamics control (compression, saturation) at the end before the master limiter. Try not to limit more than 3-4 db or it will start to sounds too flat and distorted.

I hope it helps! :slight_smile:
