Listening at work on cruddy PC speakers, so no low-end love. First I listened again to your Fitzgerald comp.
The vocals are sounding really good! So now I’m listening with everything in relation that that.
- Guitars sound really good and I agree, they could come up a little more.
- I can hear the bass - nice job with saturation etc., and I agree, it could come up a smidge too. I am also wondering if it could use a little more compression to level the performance out so there’s not notes poking out here and it’s more of a steady foundation. (?) (Disclaimer: I’m listening on bass-less speakers and am only hearing the upper harmonics, so I may be way off here.)
- The thing sticking out to me is the drums. They seem too loud now, and I’m not liking the clickiness of the kick drum. It sounds more appropriate for heavy metal or something.
This is getting better and better, and I am really liking the vocal. You’re bringing out performance really well.
You may already know/be doing this, but just in case - one thing you can do to check your mix is listen to it and your reference at very low levels so you can just barely hear them, and see what is poking out and most prominent in each.
@skua - nice job on this!
