  1. I'd really like to get feedback on this remix I did, I thought it came out pretty well but I'd like to get more opinions on it! I haven't done anything in awhile, and in that time my music has gotten a lot better. Nearly everything in this was synthesized by me, and all of the melodies are also done by me, so yeah it's almost an original song? Anyway, I hope you like it!
  2. The guitar is very good, the choppy bit at the beginning was kind of awkward, but once the song started it was ok. The guitar mixing was good, and I did like that you could hear the bass without any trouble, sometimes that is really hard to do because guitars are sometimes hard to mix. Maybe bring out a bit more high end though, the guitar arpeggios were very difficult to make out. The only really big problem is the drums, which are in serious need of EQ and compression. Boost the snares at around 250hz for more punch and between 4-8khz for more texture, also at 1-2khz for more fill. As to the kick, it is so quiet, I can barely hear that all. Before you do anything, you may just want to just pump up the volume first, but not too much, since you are doing metal a slightly (emphasis on slightly) quieter kick is pretty standard. Increase the low end at about 60-110hz, and maybe a tiny bit below that but not too much there, if you have any fast double kick patterns you will get a rather unpleasant sound with too much addition there. Boost around 500hz if you need a bit more fill, but not very much, you don't want to interfere with the low end of your guitar or your bass. And give it more at about 2-8khz for the 'click' sound that makes kicks sound so good. Maybe a bit more high end on the hi-hats, but those sounded ok so don't worry about that too much. I feel so bad telling you to boost everything, but remember, moderation is key, and once you do all of that, if you hear any frequencies that clash once the drums are louder, you will probably need to start cutting some frequencies. I feel bad because I normally don't say to boost so much stuff because it's bad practice to boost a lot of frequencies, but in this case there is really nothing else to do but that. If they start interfering with the guitar though, you may have boosted too much or it may be a different frequency that is interfering once it is louder. Overall, it was pretty good, it just needs louder drums. And remember, these aren't hard and fast rules, this is just my experience. Mixing is an art, and there is a lot of room to be creative with it.
  3. I loved it! I agree with DevilBeats about the lead, it did feel a little bit jarring at first... It actually did fit once you got into it, just right when it started playing it was a little bit jarring. If you'd had more of a buildup to it, (just playing up a scale to the first note you play in the melody just before the actual melody) it would have been absolutely perfect. Or maybe played a few slower notes beforehand. You did have better buildup to it every other time it came in though, it's really just when it first comes in that it is somewhat surprising. But who cares? I could listen to this for hours! Overall though it was excellent, I loved every part in it besides the lead in the very beginning.
  4. I liked it, it had a nice vibe! You had a nice bass line going there, next time maybe try adding just a little bit more mid range sounds to it and it would be perfect. Also, this is just personal preference, but the lead you used for the main melody was ok, but the way you did the stab effect was slightly distracting. But that's just me, I can easily see why others would like that sound. Overall though, great remix! The kick drum was very well mixed, and I really loved that bit starting at 1:23.
  5. I actually just left a comment on Soundcloud, but I really loved it. It fits perfectly with being a battle theme for Gaster.
  6. I like it, it brings back memories. The mixing is awesome, and it has a very different style that you don't hear very often. I really dig that funky vibe though, it's pretty awesome, and very much so fits with the material.
