Things i see. The intro lacks character, not very appropiate synths nor driving but maybe this is intended.
The breakdown strings sound offkey when the stabs drop maybe you are using a preset that is pitched and the chords are the correct ones but does not sound cool. I'd work on the sound design of this part also, the synth needs to cause more impact, add some release to the amp maybe. You need a deep bass playing the root note to be more epic.
Rest is ok, cool ryhtm and ideas.
Thanks Rodri for your reply. I have to say that some things I agree with and others I dont. The intro is intended to be just a bed (if you will)for the song, building intensity as it goes. So , yes..it is intended.
I do believe the reason the stabs (which are a 7 track layer)and surrounding synths might not have the impact is due in part to your last comment which I do agree, it's bass. Personally, I dont feel it sounds out of tune or pitched ( I also have gotten multiple opinions concerning this from others after you posted,from your response, and the others seem to agree. As well, if you heard each layer of tones you would probably see the difference)however...it was agreed across the board, it still comes down to ...bass.
Do want to say Thank you for your reply. It is ALWAYS helpful to get a fresh ear on your music.Especially, from a point of view that is constructive. I always find friends saying"Oh wow, that sounds really cool"...I dont want or need that..lol Here on TA, you guys know your shit...and wont hesitate to call b.s. =OP Thanks Man!
