Needles [Mega Man II - Needle Man (GB)]

Recommended Posts

Needle Man is the theme which made me start remixing in the first place, so I tried working on it again. This time with new gear and a new DAW (Bitwig instead of FL Studio)

That bass arp is super nice, and the kick hits hard, but for me the rest of the mix lacks punch, and feels a little washed out. Could definitely do with more dramatic EQ shaping to let things sit in the mix better. The trance saw at 2:03 is really nice though. The reverb piano sound is ok by itself during the break, if a little vanilla-sounding, but gets lost when the track gets busier. That gated pad could be treated a little nicer in the break with the filter sweep, to help it transition to when the bass kicks back in.

Overall a really nice arrangement, and I dig the sound choices. Towards the end from 5:14 when you have the bass, kick, hats and trance saws it sounds best. Try and use that section to polish your mix, then sit the other instrumentation within that where necessary elsewhere in the arrangement.
