Hi,

Hope you like this electronic (extended and trancey) 2022 rework for the 2nd track of this series: MWAF_02R - Music With A Feeling, chapter 02R.
Written in B minor scale (“Be the key” a motivational phrase too), 138bpm. Sounds: “divine and solitary”. Feels: peaceful and calm, typical of a track written in B minor.
Thanks for your support. Take care :)

I really like the chord progression and melody. That's one of your strong points from the other tracks I've heard from you!

But as said above, it really sounds like the top end is overtaking the rest of the track. I've noticed that in a few of your tunes and if you can work to solving this I think it will improve your tracks greatly.

Can I ask what you are using to listen while producing? What type of speakers/headphones?

Hi, thanks a lot for your feedback.
Definitely I will seriously look into the high frequencies volume in comparison with the overall volume of the mix.
Here is my monitoring system: dj phones Technics RP-DH1200 and 2 bi-amp monitors KRK Rokit 8 + Event 20/20 15inch subwoofer + DBX active crossover, in a room with Auralex foam treatment.
For final mixing and mastering, I turn off the subwoofer, as it makes more difficult to finish the track.
I switched from the old Event 20/20 8inch (passive) monitors, two years ago, although they are still working and sound really great.
Take care.
