    Hey guys,

    I posted my first production a couple of weeks ago, and I took all advice possible, spent hours on youtube to improve and make something new and more professional.

    The link to the track is below. I would really appreciate feedback from you guys especially on the "sound engineering" part of the track. I think the "taste" of it would be quite subjective, but what would definitely help is understanding how I could improve the sound itself!

    Lil kick heavy in my opinion, Id reduce the kick by about -2.33554664 db. But not bad.

    Nice sound, just maybe the snare and the hi-hat are a little to in front, and they grab the attention. Maybe down their level a little bit so they don't "steal the show" from the main sound

    Is this really melodic techno? Sounds more like a house style to me. Anyway.

    When the bd kicked in I went like :woot:.
    Hell, how deep is it going? 40Hz? (Couldn't download which confuses me).

    I have to semi agree with 11Fletcher. Sn & hh are too upfront and maybe lowering is enough levelwise but I would try to apply some room too.

    I'm listening with Beyerdynamic DT 880 pro headphones and I agree that the Bd is not only too loud but may need some EQ. Once this is done, you will probably need to re-equilibrate the snare and the HH too.

    This is awesome feedback thank you guys. I will focus on the kick especially as it's too obnoxious I agree. After that I will adjust the rest of the drums accordingly! Funny enough, now that I have "finished" the toughest part of the track I am not really sure what to do with it haha this is really for a passion, I never considered a career in production or anything like that. But I have to say, the satisfaction is 100% worth it. I will repost after changes

    No, no, kick is great. It's full, warm and has character, I wasn't just prepared for this :). Maybe some small adjustments but I wouldn't replace and/or totally change it.
