When the snare drops in at about 1 min it is way to loud say about 3 upwards dB

The pad sound that being use as like a kinda stab at the beginning is a couple of dB to loud if that mabey 1/1.5, but I
would put some width on them and some fairly heavy eq.

There is a layered sound at about 2 mins, sounds like a detuned saw that sounds like it should be distorted and eq'd a bit.

2:48 there is a clap that could be a few dB higher in the mix.

Also i would have a lot more things on the master buss, but I like to master my own stuff.

apart from that sounds banging.


P.S what i said is just my opion and i dont think your crap at mixing or making music, I'm just saying how i would do it.

Would that be in relation to the 'nowhere to go' acapella by Bree??? I have a version that doesn't have that acapella....

Other than that not sure what you're talking about as there's an official remix for the track... online version is here..

So a send/Return.

A return track is also called Send or Buss's or Aux which is short for Auxiliary. They all pretty much do the same thing.

There's really only two basic rules to remember:
1) You SEND signals OUT to an IN, INPUT, or RETURN.
2) What you SEND OUT must eventually RETURN to another mixer channel or you won't make any noise.

So say if you have a few things that you want to have a Reverb or Delay on say 10 audio track's/sample's out of 20 then instead of using 10 Reverb or Delays you can just use one Reverb or delay on the Return and then just send the Signal to them. If you want me to go into it a bit more I would be happy to explain!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -----------

No need to feel silly mate, We all start at the beginning at some point


What's Mastering?

Well basically once you have mixed down a track (which is what mixing engineers do) and you have a final file, have you notice is don't really sound like something you would hear on the radio? you noticed it need that extra bit of sheen that almost professional Polish to be put on it to make it sound Radio ready?

That is what mastering dose. it is basically putting things as loud and possible and making them sound phat and pumping and making sure that the same song sounds phat. No matter if your listening in a car or a huge club, Mastering engineers try to make it sound clean and polish so it will sound good on all good audio systems.

That's basically what they do in layman's terms.

P.S if you want me to give your track a quick master I will give it a go. but I'm no pro but I am pretty good, I'll let you decide if you up for it?

Definity, I'd most appreciate the mastering please, i didn't know about the return, so i can basically 'clump' 10 tracks into the return and then put a filter on the return track???

awesome was wondering how do to do that...

OK thats a go on the mastering, (how do you do it btw..... i have ableton)

and also I just made this one here...

Doctor P Feat. Genna G - NEON (Celestial Knight Remix)

Let me know what you think of that one too... and remastered IF it needs it (which im sure it does) lol

Need a good tutorial....... hrmmmz

The return section in able ton is where you can put fxs like filters phasers, whatever. Then you have the send knobs on your track. labeled A B or C. You turn the send knob which sends whats playing in the track to the return fx.

Its a good way of making sure you use just one type of effect for certain tracks, rather than setting up an individual fx chain on each track.

So you need to turn the sends on the track to the return track to get the effect. Hope that makes sense.

I found the mastering track great, was able to apply a 'Mastering Suite' effects...

Here's the new mix... sounds a lot better (added some extra bits too)
