The song is sick.

Much better than your other master too!

It's generally overall a little fatiguing still. I would say maybe look into K-system metering. It might help you get a visual idea of how loud your whole mix is.

Make a cd full of this music so I can buy it

I don't think that we ever thought of it as the equivalent of music, as the end-goal was to buy more in-game slut clothes-- schecterwhore on rock band

Im a super chill mellow ambient slut. --7 STRINGS OF HATE

I'm sorry you think I'm always mean.

I'm just honest is all

Quote:
The K-System is a protocol for setting mix and monitor calibrations in a studio environment. Introduced by mastering engineer Bob Katz in 1999, the system is an attempt to standardize leveling practices throughout the audio industry. It uses three separate standards known as K-20, K-14, and K-12. With each step (K-20, K-14, K-12 respectively), the available dynamic range decreases as the average level increases. This versatility allows the K-System to accommodate a wide range of audio material and mediums.

http://www.aes.org/technical/documen...s.cfm?docID=65

That's the original article on K-system metering.

You should read Bob Katz' book "Mastering Audio"

I don't really have anything to say about mastering, but in my opinion, the kick lacks balls. It's all klick, no real low end on there.


Anyway, the music is kickass as always.
