Very neat, leave it alone! I found myself singing some weird stuff to this. Cool.

Missed this one. I'm not so fond of instrumentals, but this is really great.
Great work!

Hey Luke,

I liked this a lot! If I had to criticise, I would say maybe your kick is a little loud? Personally I like softer piano sounds, but that's just a personal thing. Apart from that, it's very sweet production. I love the details like the airy 'pfff' on the 4th beat at certain points.

I hope you are related to Ron Swanson.

For me it sounds good overall, it's just the balance. As Amether, I think the kick is a little loud, but so is the bass. They both dominate when everything is playing. They should to a degree, I just think it's too much of a degree as is.

Hmm interesting. Ill definitely come back with a corrected mix.

Also what do you mean by softer? Like less 2 to 6k? Or are you talking velocity?

I really want to get this track signed by a record label but I guess it's not hitting home with anyone. Is it just the mix that needs help or does the track just plain suck. I really need some honesty here guys. Thanks

I meant strictly volume. I think the mix sounds fine, it was only the balance that caught my attention.

Awesome. Uploading new version. I think this one sounds quite a bit different. Hopefully, for the better.

Nice. If it were my track I would keep the brushes/shaker sound and also add some kind of conventional snare drum but thats only my subjective opinion of course, well done.

Thanks morgon, Okay so I did try what you suggested but my gut was saying a snare wasn't the right piece to use. Maybe I could try a softer snare if I can find it.

Btw heres a version 3, More reverb and some eq changes.

That's pretty nice, I like the vibe. Mechanically/production wise it all sounds great to me.

Regarding content it's a bit repetitive for my taste - maybe I need to pay more attention to the textures but it could use something extra towards the end.

I do like it though, and my wife said it was nice also.

Hi Luke. The last version isn't there for the moment. Speaking of the previous one,
to my taste, it sound's very nice. The mix looks to be ok.
Honestly, I have a problem with the "clap thing".
Your kick is really good. As someone says, you have to keep this shaker for the atmosphere, and I think with a honest snare, maybe a smooth one, you'll have the thing ok.
To me the claps doesn't look so "in the rhythm" and their sound looks a little cheap.

At last, maybe a little more things in the middle to avoid some monotony.

That's a pure subjective opinion but I think you asked so. Finally, for me, it's a very cool piece that needs a few things to be really great. Like your style.

Bye
