Rejected again, please help!

Hey AudioEpon, :slight_smile:

The idea is fantastic, I like the composition but there are a few things I noticed:

  • The piano chords are way too loud and bassy, one can’t hear much because of them.
  • The percussion sounds weak.
  • The FX for the transition are barely audible.
  • I am not sure about the staccato strings, they are not always there. I can’t hear them also very well because of the piano.
  • I am not sure if there’s a bassline (still because of the piano)

My suggestions would be to:

  • Make sure to use EQ and remove all the low end from all the instruments that are not kick nor bass.
  • Sidechain the piano to the kick.
  • Sidechain the bass to the kick.
  • Watch as many tutorials as you can and use reference tracks from the market to compare.

Good luck! :wink:

Thank you so much for your very detailed comment. I’ll work harder on balancing and mixing next time :slight_smile:
