    Listening right now. Master sounds very good. Really like the song.

    I'm thinking the new master has some crisper highs in it. Cymbals and vocs seem to have just a bit more depth. Don't really know, just seems so on my system. Very hard to tell, as both seem pretty well done. Not much different, so don't take what I say as too much. Nice tune.

    Cheers Dogman. Bad point about the mix is the guitars sounding too fizzy if you know what i mean.
    I prefer the new master as you said it seems to have more crisp highs.
    I think it is punchier and also alot clearer than the old master. Anyone agree or disagree with this?

    The drums and guitar in 'New Master' definitely sound brighter, crisper and clearer. Vocals seem about the same...but very good.
    Nice song too.

    Nope...

    the song is amateurish at best,don't bother trying to fix this mess with mastering,it won't help.

    Cheers all. Emergencyexit, Yeah the snare is compressed? Do you think it isnt? Im quite liking the sound of the snare and kick drum, they sound pretty big and punchy.

    VSpaceBoy, not sure if there is too much hi end. Are the cymbals too harsh? I cant judge as i am using Sennheiser HD200 headphones rather than nice monitors with better response.

    Could be me missing those frequencies becasue of my shitty headphones. Ill have to take all my masters into the studio and have a good listen to them before releasing the album. Could it be MP3 convertion that is making the cymbals distorted almost?
