Mutate

Working on trying to have a beginning middle and end of a song as well as working on my transitions. I think i need to tone down how long my intros are. That and maybe not to have too busy of a song?

I could see this stretching out to a longer piece, actually.  From a mix point of view, not too busy...but it might help to pull down the snare and hats a bit.

I've been wondering if i've been making some of these tracks too busy and it all sounds like i'm mashing everything together.

Pull down the snare and hats by lowering volume? or do i have too many of em smashed into there?

I'd say just lower the levels on the snares and hats.  How much control do you have over individual hit levels?  Or do you just have level control by instrument (or drum)?

One trick I like to do (in Ableton) is put two auto-pans inline in each MIDI channel: one (set to some longer wavelength) modulates the pan, while the other (set to less intensity, shorter wavelength, and all in phase) modulates the level over a much shorter time frame.

I can definitely lower the levels in LSDJ it goes by the Envelope, i can tone down the volume that way as well as the wavelength of it is as well.

And i "think" i can try some of this in LSDJ as well by shortening the wave length and moving it to phase as well. Thank you for the tips man! I really appreciate it!
