I have been working on my new single but I feel like it could have a brighter more professional finish. To me, it sounds like there is a problem with the dynamics. The drums and the brass sections seem muffled I wonder what can be done to fix it. I have topped and tailed it so its tighter and in better time on the newer one I have here in front of me but it doesn't sound as professional as John Newmans "will you love me again" for instance, I have been working with top notch engineers but to no avail, why? It sounds okay in the studio on top notch speakers, but when I listen to it through radio or on other systems, it sounds too muffled.
What can I do to make my single sound brighter and more professional without the instruments muffled? How can I account for the loss of fidelity associated with radio or consumer audio gear?
