i think i'm starting to figure things out! i threw this song together today so it's not perfect but i'm getting closer and closer to compressing everything better. it's not completely done but could you guys check it out? the piano is a bit off at points (like when it comes in) and the song layout is a little weird but i was just having to much fun with the sound and wanted to show.

I think this has some good potential. The kick is lacking some punch. And a variety in the drums would sound good. I like the atmospherericness. Ya with the compression when the breakdown comes it gets louder so I think you should balance the levels especially with the kick. But it's a good start! Keep at it.

good job tyler.

one thing i did notice is that the placement of the sounds seems reversed to me... like the drums should be in the back and the sounds in the front... it's like reversed... l don't know if you get what I'm trying to say...

yeah good progress, maybe try slowly fading those highs on the second sound in on the intro they kinda throw the start off for me. also, the sound thats getting crushed can sometimes be abrasive (i can understand it on certain parts) but maybe try to vary the pull some of the bit reduction when it sounds off. - just a thought

Thanks a ton for the comments, I can definitely work on that stuff, and I'll post another draft when I've worked that and some other suggestions people have given me out.

I like this quote. Sums up quality gear vs technique.

what's the point in converting mp3 to wav? i'm pretty sure it's impossible to regain the lost quality that way.
