I did that purposefully since I beliwve if a mix sounds good on laptop speakers it will likely translate on most other systems. Anyway, there were 2 things I noticed in the mix that I felt could be improved upon. First, I felt like the hi hat in the loudest sections of the song (for example the section leading up to the 1 minute mark) was a few dBs too loud. That is probably more a preference thing than an actual problem so take that for what it's worth. The other thing occurs in those sections as well: The bass is very audible until the synths hit. For example, it's very out front from around 1:39 to 2:15 but when those synths ramp up at 2:15 the bass kind of disappears. I'm not sure if you have thought about doing any ducking to help with that, but I'd probably use Trackspacer to carve out the appropriate EQ range from the synth sounds to make room for the bass. It could be this is less noticeable on systems that can deliver more bottom end as the lows & sublows of the bass probably don't clash with the synths but the upper mids &/or highs of the bass seem to be getting lost under the synths.

    Don't take those criticisms as anything other than hopefully helpful feedback. I liked this a lot.
    Wow. That's exactly the kind of feedback I'm after. Thanks so much for both taking the time to listen to it and also writing some detailed notes. I've never heard of trackspacer, and my mixing and mastering skills are pretty poor, so any tips like this are very much appreciated. I agree about the hi-hats too. Soundcloud offers a mastering option and I tried it out, and it mastered it with super bright hi hats. I'm glad im not the only one that noticed this. I'll change it for sure. Thanks again for listening

    I went out for a backcountry ski tour today, about 3000' of climbing with perfect sunny and cold weather. I definitely needed a good adventure outside and I feel grateful for days like these.

    Imo. not as good as Trololo, but still funny! I'd rate it somewhere between Schnappi Das Kleine Krokodil, and Wadde Hadde Dudde Da.

    I was born in a mountainous state, so I guess it's my birthright. What's fun is I am a total newb compared to the guys out there every other day. On the descent, my partner and I saw a group of "graybeards", the older gentlemen who have been out there since 1970-something, lol.

    We topped out at around 10,000' on this particular day. Utah has "shorter" mountains than Colorado, so sometime I'd like to get into some of their backcountry and get above the treeline.

    You’re my hero Kerry. Makes my life here in Hoboken seem super-pedestrian. Highlight of my day was going to Trader Joe’s.
