    I recorded some more demos of my friends synth band. I got it about as good as I can by myself. Any advice would be mucho, mucho appreciated.

    Hi,
    Have you listened with h'phones? The intro caused a lot of pressure in my ears.
    The cymbals need taming as does the lead key.
    The backing keys need some space.
    I like where & how the voice is.
    When the bass guitar came in the song sounded electro punk but then the bass was buried again - give it some air.
    Was it recorded live - it certainly has that feel to it.
    The spirit & recording ethos of 1976 with synths.
    Don't over do things - I, generally, like the essentials.
    Cheers

    I listened on headphones but my headphones roll off a pretty decent chunk of the highs, so they're probably not a real good reference. What frequency range was causing the pressure? Also, by "taming" what do you mean? Thanks for responding.

    Cool song. I'd like to hear maybe a few more tracks, it sounds a little empty. Oh wait, there's bass - that's better. Good stuff.

    MANX,
    I don't know the frequency of the pressure I was only using a pair of MDR V3's & didn't run any freq. analysis.
    By taming I meant, crudely, drop the levels or re EQ to the same effect.
    Don't panic - it may have been just me & my machine or the mP3 decompression etc etc etc.
    If no one else mentions it take it for what it is - an isolated opinion.
    Cheers

    Iīm hearing in a pair of Sonyīs MDR-7509 and have no problems...
    MIXING
    Take some low end of reverb in synth pads.
    Tame the hi-hat, give some around 10khz to it and remove some around 8khz
    Good bass sound there when itīs not fighting with other instruments.
    I Think everythong sounds nicely, but overall volume hides it because of loud Synth. Lower itīs volume and bring the rest up front.
    I think the KICK SNARE KICK SNARE KICK SNARE with hats in contra-tempo donīt work at all...
    Thereīs some weird noise at 8khz I guess.
    Why not maximizing itīs volume? at -3!

    SONGWRITING
    Well... itīs noticeable that someone canīt play a keyboard for the lines and for the lost tempi :-)
    Maybe a change in the lyrics that just repeat themselves?
    It seems to me that you donīt know where to go untill you get to 01:00
    00:43 Weakens itīs other appereances
    Whyīs that HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY? Do you really imagine peopple in a club screaming HEY HEY HEY HEY
    Didnīt have enough time to listen to hole song but it seems to be in itīs way UP!

    Well if you guys could just comment my mix!
