Workshop #58: Taste of My Life by the Maki Project


At Audiotuts+ we irregularly put up a reader track for workshopping and critique (find out how to submit a track). This is how it works: you upload your song, and every week or so we'll publish one here and step away from the podium. The floor is yours to talk about the track and how the artist can fix problems in and improve upon the mix and the song.

This track has been submitted for your friendly, constructive criticism. They have put their track (and their heart and soul) in your hands to learn and get useful feedback.

  • Do you enjoy the song or track itself? Does it have potential?
  • Can the arrangement be improved?
  • How did you find the mix? What would you do differently?
  • What do you enjoy about the rhythm track? What can be done to improve it?
  • Is the choice of instruments relevant and effective for the style/song?
  • Are the lyrics (if any) effective? Does the style, arrangement and genre of the song suit them?
  • Can you suggest any specific techniques that might improve the track?
  • Do you have any other constructive feedback?

Taste of My Life by the Maki Project

Description of the track:

If you could spare a minute I ask you to listen to this track as I need your honest input with it. This is my first electronica project and I guess you can call it a Vocal Trance track.

I have a bit experience with Rock & Pop mixing but Trance is completely new for me. Because of this I need you to be honest and give me as much feedback as you are willing to give.

Tell me if you like it and if you can why but by all means, also tell me if it sucks. Every input is most welcome as I want to get better in what I am doing and you could help me with it. The more details the better.

Tell me if you think something sticks out (and not in a good way), or if something seems out of balance. Are certain elements too loud or too quiet? What would you change if it would be your song.

The song was made on a Mac Pro 3.0 GHz Quad in Logic 9. Again, your input is most welcome and I am looking forward to your replies.

Terms of Use: Users can stream the track for the purposes of giving feedback but cannot download or redistribute it.

Have a listen to the track and offer your constructive criticism for this Workshop in the comments section.
