I think there's way too much going on here. Less is more
Accurate. Most of those sounds have distortion on them on purpose though, including 2:36.
This song was almost literally "how loud can I make this without it sounding like complete shite?" I've put as much sidechain compression on some of the tracks as I could (otherwise I wouldn't have gotten it near that level of loudness) but I'm still kiiiind of learning this game.
I also like a lot going on. Not really a minimalist. Really enjoy have a lot to focus on. That being said, I'm also not trying to overdo it. Having a tough time finding that balance honestly.
I really, sincerely, do appreciate the feedback and welcome it. So honestly - thank you so much for taking the time to help.
