Hello! Just put up my first song on this site and was wondering if I could get some opinions. You can listen to it on my profile here:


Honest opinions are valued and appreciated! I'm looking for ways to improve this song and others in the future.

I'll give it a listen a bit later, in an hour or two.

And welcome to HRC.

While I really dig the simplistic sound of it. I think it might be a little bit thin sounding. Meaning te use of some EQ to kind of make some of the sounds a little bit bigger then they are now. By that I mean to thicken them up a little and give them a more pronounced place in the mix.

Take the percussion for instance. While I really like the sounds you used for it, it could stand to take a little bit bigger place in the mix. Not meaning be more out front sounding. Simply having a bit bigger sound to it. For that I suggest adding a little bit of lower midrange to it.

The other instruments as well, could play a little bigger part in the overall sound of the piece for sure.

I really liked the arrangement of it for sure. But adding some other elements here and there will really help it move along better. They don't need to be huge part's either. Just simple things to help transition from place to place in the mix.

Overall, its a really cool ambient piece for sure. Kind of drifting in and out of different feelings.

Nicely done for sure.

Yeah, I was thinking something similar, particularly the addition of sounds and transitions. I'll try to add a little more atmosphere to it with some extra sounds and EQ it more. I'm still getting the hang of recording my stuff, so I definitely appreciate the input. Thanks for taking the time.

Absolutely, that's what we are here for.

And ya, getting the hang of it takes some messing about. Don't ever be afraid to experiment some with things. It is honestly the best way to make things happen sometimes. You never know until you try is what I always say.
