I'm not very good with EQ, and basic mastering,
This track would probably have problems with low frequencies.
On headphones it sounds good but no in the speakers

It isn't all that bad.
Drums should be louder.
Mix is a bit muffled (the hi-end could be a little bit stronger)
Use a plugin like Izotope Ozone 4 to master.

Practice, Practice, Practice


THEN......

Practice some more. Big Grin

But seriously just trawl through you tube and all the dnb/dubstep production forums. Treasure trove of info.
You wanna get good then you better be ready to put the effort in

Google is your friend.

Thanks for your help, I added Izotope on the master but not the presets, I added a compressor to drum now. I think that sounds a little better,

thanks for the help.
i always watching the video tutorials from the web, but I lose a lot of time to mixing with mastering, and very often when you do not have the desired result, the desire to play it , go away, probably would be better some basic study , or the help to some mastering engineer

Forget about mastering for the time being.

It is the pitfall of all aspiring produces that they need to be great at mastering from the off.
Save that for people who know how.

You should concentrait on composition and how to get it sounding good just with the mix alone.

Then once you can do that, then worry about mastering, or if you've been signed because you write good music someone else will do it for you Tongue

You should sign to a major to get that service nowadays and they'll pay it from your royalties.

Simple!
Read up on Eq, basic mastering and sort out your low frequencies. Buy some good headphones/monitors but THE most important thing to do is
BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH!
seriously, try Tom Tom! There might be a direct route to making the BEST music!

I did not want to be presumptuous not much hahaSmile . It 'been a misunderstanding.
"the best music I like" was meant more for me, I do not want "the best" like lady gaga ..... and 'hard to explain, and probably with the translation is' lost its meaning.
however, in many forums we read the same things, I think there are some simple and basic rules to consider when a beginner start a production.
Everyone wants a track pump and it's quality '..
It may seem banal , but it' so.
1 and the first rule in the digital music is : no cliping
2 second rule is : no clipping ! no master clipping ,no channel clipping ...... plug in vst.etc ...red light it is enemy!
3 The third rule is : 'use of samples of quality' is not mp3
4 fourth rule is : cut ,many samples have frequencies that are not needed ,cut them accurately
5 fifth rule is : devoted the right time for each stage
inspiration , the choice of material, construction, to editing. etccc

this and 'what I found in the web (there' a lot more) this definitely was an help for me .
Sorry for my trash English !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to all those who participated in this discussion! that despite everything, have been for me an help
