Thanks guys for your feedback on my track, very useful indeed, I will re-do the mix, address drum punchiness and so on.
Raphie this thing you sometimes say about 'rolling back all the faders', well for me this is near impossible because on every track I do I put many hours into level automations, and to undo it all is unthinkable, it would drain my motivation.
So I will address the levels as you are correct to pull me up on this, but I cant just pull down the faders and start again as it would cause so much work so I have to carefully re-automate each section.
Getting snare roll volume right prior to a drop I always struggle with.
I am a bit of a slammer into a compression chain. I only use Cubase dynamics really, perhaps this is part of my problem, or is that just a GAS excuse I'm making?
It sounds a bit overcooked as you and Seandroid mention, mmm, getting the balance between dynamic and sounding fully lively is bloody hard I have to say.
Gorgan, I agree the synth is a bit generic but I just kinda like it!
Tracelover thx for your comments, but mix wise it deffo needs work so I will do that shortly. Glad you like infinite, it's kinda soothing sounding I guess.
A lot of you guys seem to find mixing very much easier IMO. I learn from you but boy am I a slow learner.
just a quick tip Richard - i NEVER automate level faders for the precise reasons you give
instead, if i want to automate volume, i put a Utility on the track and automate the gain on it instead. Surely Cubase has something similar?
