heard on old Samsung earbuds (terrible ones) - previous pass was in AV40s in a treated room
This mix translates very smooth on the earbuds, possibly one of the smoothest mixes done.
reverb on the background vocals was flawless. Distant bells and other artifacts added kept the song from being dull and emotionless (tends to happen with me with slower songs with a lot of reverb)
phasing issues noticed on earbuds at:
1:06 - 1:13 (seems vocals were duplicated and are fighting for space on my earbuds)
2:16 comes back at the phrase "when its a "
Earbuds are glitching at those points reducing the volume of the vocals.
earbuds crackle at 2:48 need you “any” way (at the word any), somehow peaked there.
Some simple changes suggested:
Maybe a bit too simple but maybe crop the ending consonants a bit for extra smoothness
example “WastelandD” , the reverb extends the endings where they get a tiny weeny bit distracting.
I do notice you have timed them well with background harmonies, so your hard work is very evident.
To re-iterate, very well done, very very smooth. Love it!
