I see you're stealing potential posts from my thread... Tsk tsk!

Only kidding, this will actually help me out by reducing the number of feedback requests in that thread. Good job!

Just as I thought. Len sounds quite lifeless in comparison to konuko's version with Shione Lt because there is not enough tuning. Don't be afraid to add more shorter notes on transitions (but remember to follow the key of the song).

If automatic portamento ever makes your notebending sound off, you can add a shorter (but not too short, otherwise the next consonant will slur) note at the end of the note that sounds off (basically split the note) in order to shorten the POR.

Note taken.

(Although I guarantee that some of my other covers to be uploaded have better tuning than what I had done in "Wind-up God". although i'm not confident with that yet.)

I feel inclined to give some feedback on the first one 'Hirari Hirari' as i think it's the best sounding one out of the three and would benefit most from a few touch ups.

Firstly I think the vocal may sound better with just a little less low end on it, I can't tell exactly with these speakers as they're not the greatest and I'm currently not at home, but something down there felt a little heavy to me. The other thing that came to mind is the balance of the instrumental to the vocal, it's not bad per say, but could be improved. I think it'd be a good idea to bring the instrumental up a few decibels while also introducing some side chain compression. Basically you want the vocal to duck the piano a little every time it comes in. This will create a nice dynamic between the two parts. I always find it a little odd when an instrumental does not rise to match the dynamics of the vocal when it is absent. Hope that helps.

Mixing's pretty good.
Everything's separated pretty well.
Balance is pretty good too. Vocals could be brought down a bit further.
Also, individuals instruments can be brought up a little bit during the break part.
Other than that, it's good! :D

Ahh, I think I'll jump in here with a mixing critique request for my new song. Does anything specifically sound off? Too loud or too soft?

Thank you in advance!

Sounds to me as if there is a bit of an EQ mismatch between the instrumental and your vocal. To be specific the vocal sounds quite thick towards the lows (possibly 100-300hz) where as the instrumental feels a lot lighter in that area. The result being that the vocal sounds a little tacked on to the music rather than a part of it. I'd probably start by reducing the lows and then pushing the vocal fader up a little to compensate for the lost energy.
