  1. Hi there, Nice to see a strong interest in this thread! I think the advice is really good. so i'll try and throw in my two cents. I think that the problem is soley about your mixing capabilities. I've been frequently told that you know you've got a good mix when a mastering engineer has hardly any work to do to master it! I don't think its your monitors beacause after a while of using them you should have an idea of how to get the best sound from them. Have you ever thought about doing a music production course of some kind? Listening to your tracks i hear that they are pretty much there but just missing that 'sparkle' to it. A course might be able to teach you how to get that sparkle. I know schools such as Point Blank run an online courses in mixing which you might find of interest as they all are run by industry professional tutors. Have a look at their course brouchre: http://www.pointblankonline.net/courses/ Just giving you another alternative to the advice you've gotten in this thread. I think at some point you hit that glass ceiling which some sort of formal learning can help you break through. Anyway i wish you all the best in your productions!!
