Hi,

this is a new mix of a song of mine.

I appreciate any kind of feedback / constructive criticism.

Re: please give me some constructive criticism on my mix (instrumental prog. metal)

That's a really good mix Lars. I think your levels and EQ are all on the mark. Very well thought out. I haven't had time to listen to previous versions for comparison, but I will later.

The only thing that jumps out at me are the kick and toms......they seem a little "sterile", or maybe monotonous is a better word. If you have the ability to play with the intensity on each separate drum....I would. A real drummer NEVER hits a head the same way repetitively and in perfect time. A little variation give the drum tracks a more "real life" sound.

Thank you very much for your feedback! Much appreciated !

Yes, I agree, I should vary the MIDI velocities to get a less mechanic/ robot-like feel for the drum.
