    Hello Uraz,
    i listen to it with iMac speakers, (which is not so good for this thing)
    But imho:
    there is not enough clarity in vocal,
    test Clariphonic by Kush, or maag eq
    or maybe lift a db around 8k to 12k on your vocal,

    I liked that melody :)
    what language is it?

    It's leaning bright with a heavy handed low-end.

    There is some build up between 720 and 1400, and a soft dip around 500.

    Don't know if it was a final Eq on the final pass or in the mix - regardless the mix is where it should be fixed.

    The vocal bits if they need tweaking it should be done in the mix. I don't understand Korean so I can not really comment on how faithfully anything is coming through.

    It sounds fine other than being a little bright and cutting - it will do - the mixing and mastering are not holding it back and 99.9999% of people will not notice or care.

    Looking at the waveform and the analyzer we have a dude here who knows quite well what he is doing.

    Please be advised that this is not my fav type of music, so maybe I'm "wrong", but:

    Hihat & cyms sound a little bit unprocessed, there could be more panorama, too (more spread around the stereo field).
    The piano could have some panorama, same with the string (?) sound in the piano solo.
    The clap sound is, ehm, well, one of its own ;-). For me it's too loud and I'm no friend of the ending sound and its panorama at all.
    I'd prefer more smack in the BD.
    The vocals emotionally sound a little bit bored now and then and technically not very detailed.

    Despite that I think it's a nice easy listening piece of music.

    Ah, I forget: If mix and mastering are really good is woth to spend 320kbps for the mp3, the difference is audible.

    good melody !!
    yeah the voice is a little boxy less 164hz -2db /-580hz -1,5db / 87hz -1db
    and more clarity in air freq hi shelf +4db at 6400hz automate for less tttttt on "koto arsu" at 7sec
    less bass at 87 hz -1db
    the snare is too in front ,around -0,3db or maybe check the phase
    PS:those values matching with my eq (LogicX Linear phase EQ) , headphones and hears :guru:....
    on the bridge your voice is good but at 2,40 , less delay (maybe more filtered)
    at 2,55 the voice mount too much less volume and more slap or para-chorus for stereo effect
    deéss the back voices at 3,39
    but very good mix :wink:
    i've made an eq of your song , i've uploaded it to you if you want

    I disagree with everybody except, korte1975

    • my 12 inch subwoofer loves the low end
    • love the subtle effects
    • love the unprocessed sound of the drums, the ratle from the snare, panning choices are interesting.
    I do tend to spot some boxiness, but when I try to re-spot it is gone. I gues it's the reverb and it isn't distracting
    the reverbs are pure estetic choices, it wouldn't work for every track but here it's spot on.

    my insights:
    1) lower the volume of the snare/clap, in order to be perceived as further than those vocals
    2) you might want to separate the layers of keys/pianos/strings, I wouldn't hesitate to make at least one of them much wider to fill the space
    3) vocals would deserve some reverb, not essentially all the time, probably I'd spend some time automating the reverb to match the rest of the instruments depending on parts of the song

    The instruments sound very good. There are some nice bass lines thrown in there.
    If not a real drummer, which would be ideal for a song like this, as others have said I would rethink the drum programming.
    If you are in love with that clap.....4 to 8 measures tops while it's fading out. :)
