Very nice vibes and ambiance for sure.
Needs a bit more of a direction to keep the listener engaged imo, but def a great idea, let us know where you go with it.

Re: [chill] envelope 3 -outsides

I dig it, the soft pads early on in the background give it a really full landscape. When the drums come in fully, the song really evolves deeper. Sounds very clean all the way through. Maybe the arpeggiated bass line can come through a little heavier, but honestly it's hard to give advice on a track like this without being an engineering expert. Sounds like your composition is on point, and the song is working.

The only thing I hear to work on is bringing up some voices and placing them among the mix. Around 4 minutes in I'm getting some interesting stereo ear-experience. Almost as if it started off a little too-panned (on the left) but it seems to balance out.


Just small things though really, sounds like you have an amazing grasp on what you're trying to create. Great job.

Only thing that bugged me was the panning like what he said exactly, but all in all a very chill ambiance feeling for sure.

Hi there E3,

Nice, chill track..there is an awkward pause right around 3 minutes...I would clear that up. Otherwise no particular critique, nice work.

Re: [chill] envelope 3 -outsides

Awesome track! I'm loving the atmosphere that the vocals and pads bring to it. The drums are nice and punchy and carry the rhythm nicely throughout.

There are two suggestions that I could make, though these are both purely personal preference. The open hats on the drums sound a little ringy to me. I'm not sure if that's just my monitors though. I would consider taming it back somewhere between 8k-16k.

The other suggestion is for the bass. I love the sound of it. Nice and crunchy but still rounded. It has such a good 'oomph' when it's down low but when it moves the higher arpeggiated section it looses some of that. I understand that the arp is important as it drives the melody so I'm not sure what the remedy is. The first time I listened to it and the bass dropped back down at 3:19 I thought "Oooooh yeah." maybe you could add a drum fill or sweep into that lower section, and then continue it layered underneath the higher bass that comes back at 3:38? I'm not sure.

I especially love the last section (3:57 onward). It sounds super full without being muddy and everything gels well. All in all this is a beautiful track. I think you could easily call it finished as is. Well done!
