Alternative ITB Mix Advice Needed! Multi-Ef­fects Plugins

Alternative ITB Mix Advice Needed!

Hey guys!

I have been lurking around this board for some time. The vast amount of knowledge on here is amazing! I don't have a lot of experience as an engineer, but I am working and studying everything I can to improve myself.

I could really use some fresh ears on this project. The drums are programmed (because that is the only choice on this project) and everything was done 100% ITB on an MBox. This track is not mastered. Any help on specific levels, EQ, anything would really help.

I am second guessing myself a lot. Here are some worries that I have:

01. Not enough separation between the instruments. Maybe too muddy?
02. Is there enough low end?
03. Do the drums need some reverb? Maybe export the drums soloed and bring them back in to simulate overheads?

Thank you all so much for any feedback!

Wondering if I maybe should maybe bring up the low end of the synth bass sample in the verses. Any help would REALLY be appreciated!

Cool tune.

But it is a bit muddy. Perhaps roll off a little bit of low end on the bass and boost the highs.

Drums seems fine to me.

Those are the two things that stand out the most...bass is covering up everything and it's dull.

nice tune !
cut the lows of the bass, i guess below 50 hz.. this kind of music an be emphsized more on the mids than on the lows... and if you're able to make the cymbals a bit more wide and the strings too, would help the overall image i think :-)
