I personally prefer to do mastering without Ozone, using great individual analog modeling plugins except maximizer. I usually go for rock/metal music and I'm not used to mix for these kind of music yet, although I can compose it due to my classical background when I was really young. I guess that's the reason for that. The thing I know is that we must not limit the classical music a lot, so I engaged L316 only to protect the music from reaching to the ceiling, which is -1.0dB when it's on streaming services.Ozone needed, and bitrate is low? composition is ok, production needs work. Levels too high, no headroom. Some of the string sounds are ok, but I can't hear them too well in this mix.
This will help you a lot,
I wanted drum rhythm to dominate the overall music, that's why it's loud.Personally I'd lower the drum and also soften the attack a hair, it's a bit tappy. I'd lower the high strings, and RAISE the low strings... that's the dramatic part and it's buried.
But I like!
Thanks for that! I'm glad that you like my track. Although the comments could be a bit meaningless I'd like to receive and think of them so that I could be better. I'm always opened for critics and grateful to be advised.Excellent! It sounds really good. Since it's made for film these critiques are a bit meaningless because it might fit perfectly in a scene. That loud drum might be... perfect!
