Real nice track. I really like the very precise wobble & I like the way the piano part just jumps in again at about 2.21. The only thing I'd do is make the kick & snare punch through a bit more.

Beauty, I just feel the wobble is a little overpowering, the piano is nice
I agree with Peevy, the drop at 1:24 would hit me much harder if the kick could really be heard, but now it feels like the wobble ate the kick..
Just practice that mastering and it will be very nice..
Just out of curiosity, what did you use for the wobble? Massive?

Feel free to review my latest remix :wink:

nope no massive i just layered two operators on top of eachother with some saturation and a bit crusher that i then freezed and flattened. i used dynamic tube on two identical audio tracks to boost the ouput of the flattened clip and then made two additional audio tracks that i panned all the way left and right with an added flanger and reverb to widen the mix.

anyone have good tips on mixing and mastering? i try cutting the kick frequency out of the bass to get to punch through but i'm not too good at it and i really don't know what else to do.

great sampling. what film is that?

cool wobble, id bring it in, or hint at it, maybe as a downbeat skank, much earlier...

thru my set the wob is a tad loud, snare too distant and dry...now that its been a few days just relisten and try to relevel, theres no formula...i like spectrum analyser as an aid,not a fix all...

cool ideas though, good track
