You know the feeling. 

You've spent way too many hours getting a really sweet mix on your new orchestral track and you're pretty happy with the result so you bounce it down and take a break for a while so you can listen to it later with fresh ears.

You come back to the studio, cue up a few tracks from your favorite composers of a similar style and press play.

And your face drops. What's happening here? 

The track you were so proud of just a few hours ago suddenly sounds completely amateurish. It's got a 'harshness' to the upper mids and a 'muddy' build-up in the lower mids. It seems to have no width to it, it sounds bland

And worst of all it's so much lower in volume than the pro tracks you're comparing it to.

What went wrong? 

It's Time For A Master Touch

Take heart my friend. All is not lost! 

Think about it for a minute. You're trying to compare a track that you probably created and mixed all by yourself with tracks that have been mixed to a very high standard (possible by a dedicated mix engineer) and then 'mastered or polished' to give them the most impact and sparkle! 

Provided your track is well mixed, there is a very strong possibility that after you've given it a bit of careful tweaking, your track will once again bring a big smile to your face
