Ahh, glorious stereo - that’s much better!
Man, this is a great piece of composition! I love all the attention to detail - the atmospheres, the little transitions, the variety of tones and textures, and most importantly, the way you develop a central melodic concept and tell a story that keeps the listeners’ attention all the way to the end. You’ve really nailed the cinematic quality in spades.
Production-wise, this is great - all the sounds are superbly crafted and sit really nicely together. The mix is great too, but the bass caught my ear as possibly needing some attention… a kind of “boomy-ness” that was hard to describe - particularly noticeable in the section that starts around 40 secs in with the pumping basslinee…
There was something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on, so I downloaded the track and had a bit of a play with the low end. I think the issue might be the frequency area centred around 126hz - just pulling that area down by a couple of dB seemed to clear it up a bit. I experimented a little more with some multiband comp there too, and it seemed to help.
Perhaps the solution might be as simple as turning the bass down a tad, but then again, that might hurt the sound in other places in the song.
Overall though, excellent sounding stuff!
