i feel like the synths should have come in on the first bar instead of leaving the 4 bar of percs.  really nice bass line. id cut some lows out of the claps and push them back into space with lower volume a bit. the noisy synth with the phaser or whatever on it is really nice and i feel like that could make a strong choral element rather than sparsely placing it in the rest of the beat. then, skip ahead, there is the heavily enveloped bass note which should come in much earlier as well.  i consider to have a similar 'err' when making beats where i leave what i find interesting late in the track as if to be 'found' by the listener, when really i should have just introduced and spaced it earlier and more consistently, respectively.  last suggestion, try reversing or learning about inverting melodies so its not just the same swells over and over again

thanks for the tips! I tend to treat these weekly beat track like sketches. They are all performed live, and in one go. smile I'll totally rerecord it with these tips. I totally agree though, phrasing is one of the really hard things to get right when playing a track live.

I'll probably end up sequencing it out and the recording stems to have more control over the final mix.

Thanks again for the tips!!

Beautiful piece of music, sounds are really terrific! 1000h makes some good remarks, but I feel like overall it sounds great. I too treat these weekly beats more like sketches, since there is never enough time to really finish a track. That being said: I feel as if this track is already more than just a sketch. Really like it a lot!

Now that I have a proper mixer / interface I might rerecord this as stems and make a better mix. smile
