I can hear the ozone on the drums making them sparkle a bit which is nice
You've really made good progress on your recording and your playing so well done! As the guys are saying do be careful not to overdo it with ozone but used sparingly and with some custom tweaking of the presets, it's extremely, amazingly, handy.
TODD TIP 1: The boominess that Ivan is talking about shows up once I turn on my subwoofer. With my mixing speakers only, it's fine. But when I hit the sub to see what's happening in the low bass area it gets boomy. What size speakers are you mixing on? If you mix with a speaker system that doesn't have good bass response, your mixes will sound boomy. Conversely, if you mix on a system with bad treble response your mixes will have to much tweet/hiss/scratch/treble.
A couple of ways around this. Try to check your mixes on other speaker systems, even home theatre systems, systems with subwoofers, car stereos, etc
I usually mix with my earbuds. It gives a better sound than my laptop speakers.
I also test it in my car too. Thanks, though for the advice. I'm going to see about purchasing this Ozone thing.

Yep improving/re-mixing/re-mastering/etc. your songs is a endless job. There's always something to tweak.
But you you have to move on !!

I'm afraid that there is no such thing as the perfect mix. They can always be improved albeit that it takes experience to know how, what and why and to determine whether or not the extra effort is worth the improvement. Keep on practising your mixing on this, or other tracks and build up mixing experience.
You mean even with the pros we listen to on the radio and in their CDs? I've heard it said that there's no perfect mix, and that is because a song can be mixed a lot of different ways. What do you think? Does it have a lot to do with the sound you want? More mid, more bass, etc...
