Third track I've made since moving on to Reason 6. Hope you like it.

very nice song indeed :)

Maybe two things. The stereo image is a bit too polarised in my ears. The effects are very strongly L/R panned while the rest is almost completely in the middle. I´d spread the middle at least a little more so the L/R-sprectrum is used more homogeneously. Doesn´t have to be all over, emphasising those outstanding sideFX. Then I´d raise the level of those sounds in the middle, the FX appearing too dominant atm levelwise. Considering composition I was always waiting for the speechsample to dropout giving room for the rest of the song. I know it´s machinelike repetetion, just saying I´d like to focuse on the rest aswell. So I´d use it more like a chorus or at least having some parts without it.

Thanks for the input. The drum fx are achieved simply by changing the right chain offset on the echo so I should be able to tame that just by bring down the panning. My only worry is that if I bring those fx closer to the middle it might muddy the mix a little. Still, no harm in trying.

well, I´d try bringing some sounds from the middle to the midrangestereo-field having middle-midrange-widerange, so there´s enough room for everyone. The very far L/R-FX are good where they are in my ears.

Had a play around with it and widened some of the mid range. Arranged a couple of fills in the drums and altered some of the vocal sections to make them less dominant.
