Production help

Hi everyone

Currently at university, and have been producing music with shitty gear, pretty much a laptop and some headphones (no way near flat frequency response). I'm having trouble mixing tracks cause i don't believe the sound i hear is the true sound thats being generated, I'm pretty much using a lot spectral analysers and some sites that indicate where specific sounds should lie in the mix and just doing that to try and get something decent. I sent a snippet of a track to a radio station and they would like to have the full track which i haven't completed yet, is there anyone out there that can help on the mix down of the track. I prefer doing it myself so i can learn the fundamentals but i can't and would like to finish and release the track. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks guys

Re: Production help

But like, does it sound bad? Nobody else knows what it's supposed to sound like - so if the end product sounds good, you win!

Listen to it on some different headphones/systems/speakers/whatevs. Get to know how what you have sounds compared to how you want it to sound.

Re: Production help

The answer is compare!

Compare your track with other tracks you like and really listen to how they sound.

Also, compare your track on as many different headphones, in-ears and speakers as possible.

Re: Production help

everyone knows you want charmless, sterile clean polish.

Yeah, comparing to other tracks is great, you hear how it sounds in your system and can match the mixing that way. I don't have any tips or neat tutorials, trust your ears I guess...
