yeah really nice mellow vibe. sounds real nice
i think the main problem is that your music is in a minor, sounds like your main chord is a/c/e minor triad
your bass (which isnt really a bass, more like a low string) is suggestive of E minor. Its moving from through the root, third, fourth and seventh of the scale but always moves back to the root of E (which is the 5th of A minor, or the top of your chord)
This gives the kind of clashing/dissonant feel. If anything its usually better to have the bass instrument play the root of your chord (not always OBVS)
If you want to keep the sound just write a new part for it based around the scale of A (and go low A not high). that would prob work v nicely but then your kick will need to provide all the low end energy to the mix (unless you add a sub too)
then you need to sort out the mix as suggested there is a lot going on in the low mids IMO but this is mostly just to do with pitch
Thanks, Chris! Yes, main chord is a/c/e, and "bass" main is e. Trained ears I'll try to see how it works with bass on "A" scale.
Even though i like it the way it is now .
It seems that i've accidentally put a reverb filter on master channel, and the default limiter on fl master channel is pretty cranked up on "gain" function, that's why everything sounds so wide.
