Songwriting & Arrangement:
You submitted a very nice korean pop ballad with orchestral crossovers. We really like the composition. The harmonies and melodic lines are very suitable and lead to a nice emotional feeling.
Your song has a pleasant musical dynamic and the suspense captivates the listener. Thus your production never seems boring.
Recording / Performance:
The orchestra sounds like real and well played instruments that were neatly recorded - bravo!
The performance of the vocals was great and very suitable for this musical style! The expressive performance transports the mood of the song ideally, the notes are in tune and the timing ist correct. In addition, the vocal has a pleasant colour.
The mixing is unfortunately a weak spot of your song. If it was mixed professionally the song might have been a winner. ;) These are some of the aspects we noticed in your mix:
Firstly we noticed that the orchestra has a very dull sound. You should try to give the orchestral element more high end to make them more direct sounding and more realistic.
The dynamic of the vocals seem a bit uncontrolled in this song - in some places syllables get a little lost in the song context, while others stand out very loudly. Use a compressor to get this problem under control. In principle, you should compress the vocals as much as possible - but of course only as long as the material still sounds natural and does not "pump". By reducing the dynamics with a compressor the vocals cut through the mix better and speech intelligibility is significantly increased.
We noticed that your mix is a bit too resonant in the low frequencies. Try to make narrow reductions in the dominant frequency ranges with an (dynamic) EQ. An analyzer can be helpful to determine the corresponding frequency. Even a narrow-band sweep with an EQ will quickly show you where the problem lies.
The limiting of your song is a bit too strong. In order to maintain the natural dynamics of the song and still achieve a suitable loudness, you should not use too much limiting, because otherwise you'll lose the musical dynamics. We also noticed that the transient of the drums get lost in the louder sections of your song. This is a clear sign of too heavy limiting. ;)
The snare sounds a little unnatural and "weak" in your mix. You should try to fix the frequency response of this element to get a more natural and "warm" sound.
Unfortunately, the reverbs are not quite optimally selected and the spatial order is not very transparent. Try to give every element a clear spatial position, bring important elements to the front and others to the back so you get a clearer hierarchy and more transparency in your mix. ;)
The following screenshot shows a picture of a spectral analyser where you see the frequency curves of your mix. The lower curve describes the average energy level, whereas the upper curve shows the corresponding peak hold per band:
