Overall I thought that the track is really sounding good. I really like the full mix that comes in around 6:30. By this time everything fits together eq wise an has a good groove. I like the ambient stuff at the beginning of the track. The bass that comes in around :30 sounds muddy maybe around 200-350Hz or so. We’ve talked about this before. I think the arpeggios that comes in around 1:22 could come up in the mix, during this time they are kinda like the lead but they seem to fit way back in the mix because of the volume. These arpeggios drop out around 2:45 or so and it would have been good to cover that up with a backwards crash or something. Them suddenly disappearing sounds awkward to me. Starting around 5:30 the pads that are playing chord in the background could use some more hi end. This section until around 5:55 sounds dull eq wise. Also I’m not sure if it is just me or what but the mix seems too long to get to the full orchestration in 6:30. I guess you could take out a section or add some more instruments/different stuff to help build and swell more. Other than these few things I think it sounds great. Keep up the good work. Also I can’t speak about the very low end 80hZ or below because I don’t have a sub. So you might make sure to try to find a system that goes down to 30Hz or so to get an idea what is happening down there.
