I've got mixed opinions on both tracks. Your home mix has a less compressed sound to it but with some dry-sounding drums, while the professional studio has a lot of compression and an overall more bassy sound to it, with clearer drums. That being said, however, I think your home mix is slightly better.

I'm not a pro mixer, but i have some experience. I can fiddle with this song if you want. Also i have been on both sides of mix crits.
Here are my thoughts:
Kick in your mix is way too loud and have no sustain, like it was heavily gated. "Studio" mix is on the other side - too roomy, snare is very thin. Both mixes don't have low end "weight" or "balls". Bass guitar sits in ~100-200 Hz area and is masked by guitars. Lead guitar - you hear it yourself. I'd say it have too much gain and/or effects. "Studio" guitars are clearer, but very low mids heavy.

Updating and improving stuff eventually...  I spent too many hours with raw tracks for several songs; I need a little break.  ^_^

 

Also, I have ZomBass 3 (bass virtual instrument of Ibanez 6-string BTB Bass with RotoSound Steel Strings [Drop Zone Plus]) which I may use instead in future music.  :wub:  It goes down to E0 below standard E, so I do not have to worry about pitch-shifting a 4-string to get the very low notes.  :derpy:  Doesn't do hammer-ons (and pull-offs) though...but hopefully it will still fit well with guitar.  I will try to program it realistically and pay attention to velocity levels for accents if I use it in new songs; don't want boring or repetitive bass sound.
