It’s been a loong time since being active on here, and an equally long time dusting off the guitar and writing/producing something new.
Haven’t really had any discerning ears check this one out yet, so would be great to get some thoughts, comments and criticisms. Cheers.
This is the ‘final’ mix revision after pulling all the guitars down quite considerably, which really opened everything up, and gave some much needed breathing room to the drums and bass. Not sure there’s much else I can do at this point, but always open to suggestions.
Is it worth getting a proper mastering engineer to finish it off, and would it really achieve much or just be happy as is?
There’s those famous last word again hehe.
After a good hard listen I realized there were still some fairly noticeable errors, most of all being the guitars were still too loud, and the lowend of the bass was extremely weak.
Got on top of those issues and had to build certain elements back up around those changes, the biggest of which being the vocal levels.
The track now seems to have a lot more life and movement as a result of bringing the guitars down and getting some more energy into the bottom end.
Not gonna say finished, but I would say a huge leap in the right direction.
