Not done it yet but am thinking of using AI mastering for live backing tracks that need quick turnaround.

Be interested to hear why LANDR as it is one of the options I'm considering (Cloud bounce is another). Thanks for the share!

It would be more beneficial to know what the track sounded like before the mastering as well.

Yep, a pre-mastered version would be good to hear too please.

I guess its ok to go for a bit of self promotion, you've probably got a few views from this so well done.
I would say though, the mastering is not the issue you seem to be having.

You may want to have a look at your lyrics if you're seeking to improve, they are so so dated and cliche'd…

Sorry, but you did want an opinion….

How long does one have to listen/watch a youtube clip for it to be logged as a 'view'? I assume there is a minimum time for it to be logged before it is added to the views rating? For example, say I click that link above and listen to a few seconds, decide it's not for me and close the tab would I have contributed a 'view' in the same way as if I watched and enjoyed something from beginning to end?

Not sure....I'd check but I cannot risk hearing 'mommy was a dancer and her granny had cancer' again....

I appreciate everyone listening. I know the rap genre isnt for everyone. How is the sound quality? Was recorded on an akg c214 with an audient id4 interface in a home setup.

And to me, the little I listened to. I stopped listening as it is not my thing and I would not have commented on any other aspect of the performance or recording/mixing for that reason.

And then one might listen to the lot and think "what a crock of crap" but cannot be bothered to give it the down-thumb

I thought the same too, that said I am just as bad, I've said it a million times - don't use cliches

Just another nudge to say that an unmastered version to compare would be useful... ;)
