Hey guys, I worked on this during the break in between semesters. Nothing great. Could be mixed a bit better.. Actually, I think it's garbage but. . .
. Oh well. Enjoy and download?

Rhythm guitar sounds like it's centered instead of panned. Also where's the bass?

It's not garbage, but does need work. If there is a bass, I can't hear it. The drums sound a little weak as well. I think the arrangement is alright. The ending from 1:45 on is jarring, and the song just stops, without any kind of fade out or winding down. I like what you have so far, keep it up.

there's bass there. but it's like if I mix it to high, it overpowers everything, and if i mix it low, you can hear it but its just not as powerful as I want it. there wasn't enough room for a middle ground with the garbage tone i had

Idk man. Like I said, I'm pretty ashamed. so yea...


thanks for listening anyway guys

Don't be ashamed or discouraged, dude. Bass should be low, cut out the unnecessary high frequencies in the bass. And cut the lows from the rhythm guitar (keep in mind I haven't work with guitar). Even if it doesn't sound good, keep experimenting until you find something you like. Maybe try some other tones if you have access to them.

Dust your self off and keep going. The more you work, the better it will sound, and easier it will get. The bottom line: even if you don't like your music, push yourself anyway. Good music has a steep learning curve, especially on OCR. My music is only descent at best, just hang in there. Even the best remixers on this site started somewhere, and had to work their way up.

This is awesome- but the only advice I would give is to change the tone of the guitars. The drums sound perfect (superior?), but the guitar is very fuzzy and lacks any type of punch. Fix that, and you have an winner.
