    I'm working on a re-mix. Any better?

    This is mostly for practice purposes. I think the new one is a little more clear and has more attack than the original mix. Is the new one any better and what suggestions can you offer?

    The instruments aren't playing in time with each other. That's all I have to offer. You really need to get that right.

    It sounds off time? I don't think that's possible as I'm the human metronome

    Errrr..... no. It's miles off, and the mix doesn't help as the off-time guitars are drowning out the on-time drums. Or it might be the other way round. It doesn't sound as remotely concerted as it should be.

    Do I need more than ten seconds to spot that the instruments aren't playing in time with each other? Don't go on the defensive, sort it out!

    Try listening to this mix at a quiet volume on headphones. All the timing errors are really obvious when you aren't saturating your eardrums at massive volumes.

    I'm not on the defensive lol, but umm yeah you need to listen to more than 10 seconds so you can hear that although it is an unconventional intro it is indeed on time. The volume doesn't play a role in this.

    Phil it is not in time. It's all over the place. I've listened to the song all the way through and the timing errors are obvious. If you can't hear them, then I'm out of here and you can ignore my criticisms, for better or worse. But if you go forward with this, somebody more "qualified" will point out exactly the same thing to you, at some point. See ya.

    Mr Po's right. It's got timing issues. Yes, the drum part involves dragging the beat in certain sections, but you've gotta drag the beat r-i-g-h-t. This one doesn't do it. Look, I'm not boasting (cuz it wasn't me playing the drums) but check out the drum part in the last tune I put up here called 'history'. Greg drummed it, and he did a good job of dragging the beat toward the end of each verse. It works. Check it.
    Like is like still like the worst.
