As for a 4th attempt...
I think this has done it's worth. I'll get deeper into this, it made me too.
The pad and string work was absolutely phenominal. I'm still trying to get that full sound out of my pads. Although it still could've used some Chorus, and EQ.
As for the claps, they were quite basic to my ears. And perhaps too hardly placed? Try softening it with EQ or a soft limiter. A well placed snare roll wouldn't be bad either. In this case I mean, a little march.
Reckoning hardstyle intro's should be longer, and mostly with cut off kick/bass at first. And building it to another kick and bass which are more agressive.
Try introducing the kick and bass a little more. It just flew in. I'd love to hear a fading kick coming in, and when you think it'd pop, there'd be a 1/2 sec break. And kapow! The kick and bass fully pump up the scene. As for the lead in this case, you could distort it a litle, fade afterwards and re-play the melody over like 4 notes.
Once more letting the kick and bass just flop out ain't cool. Automations will do the trick. You did on the leads there a little. overall ending was nice though.
So far it's considered as a work in progress. But I just wanted to mention these tips which are essential for this genre. And for the completed track.
As a sum up; Equalize it rather more. Get in some cases volume diffrences and make it as much stereo as posible. Try transitioning an fair bit more.
That's all for now. If you have troubles or questions in mixing? Try and Pm me about it. I believe I can help you.
5/5 9/10 - I know the genre is tough.
My review shouldn't be considered as offensive. It wasn't my intention too, but rather for constructive critism.
