• Cheers both. Yep the hi hat is both panned too far and a touch too loud. The ride is a touch too quiet or that may have helped.

    Thanks for positive comments though!

  • I don't mind the hat panning but it's definitely too loud - I checked it in mono and it's right at the front and dominates the mix. The low end seems fine but I would maybe bring the bass line up a bit as it's behind the kick. Maybe then you will get a bit more of a clash, in which case maybe a bit of side-chain compression on the bass or tighten the kick as Freddo says...
