    First off, both are WAY down in level. With the quiet fade on the beginning, I thought maybe there was something wrong. Both masters could easily be boosted by 12-13dB or so without any issues.

    As far as the mix, I think I prefer 2. The bass on 1 seems to be a bit heavy handed, unless you like pumping the subwoofers a lot. I think Mix 1 was a touch more compressed, or maybe it was just the bass overwhelming the other stuff. Mix 2's balance was better to me.

    Oh yeah, forgot to add that I like the track a lot. Reminds me a bit of some of the old Isao Tomita stuff.

    thanks so much, "2" it is!
    was thinking that bass is likely too much on 1, which i think came out like that cause my monitoring needs work, about the level just realized exported those mp3's too low by mistake
    cheers
